  • HMRC registration;
  • materials preparation for students;
  • DBS certificate (optionally).

All other points are minor, but for example it can be rational to get insurance, also a good online platform can cost a certain amount of money. DBS is an unavoidable permission that will be crucial if a person is going to get a job in official organisations, but such a certificate is also a sign of absolutely clear history of the teacher and absence of any restrictions for teaching people under the age of 18 years.
