Get together with other private tutors in the TES Tutors Group. Read advice on the best way to get into private tuition, how to set yourself up as a tutor, what rates to charge and much more.
If you feel feel confident in doing tutoring at this stage and have the competence to do so in terms of planning and moving the kids along, then I would say it couldn't do any harm to put yourself forward and see if anything comes from it.
Just thought i would give you a quick heads up as i noticed from your previous posts what course you are doing (i won't mention it publicly). I did the same PGCE course - route 4.
The uni had terrible problems sourcing placements and i believe they are still having the same problems. Basically too many students not enough willing schools/staff to find placements. I would seriously consider trying to source your own through any contacts you have. It was a nightmare situation (and a long store) but it meant i finished 6 months later than i should have. The lectures at uni and teaching staff are great btw. If you want any further info just send me a pm but i would hate people to go through what i did. Btw your tutoring idea sounds great if you feel confident enough, i would go for it.
