Private Tutors Insurance That’s Made Just for You

Private tutors are needed for many reasons; someone may want to take up piano lessons or a student may need help with studies in medical school. Regardless of whom you’re supporting, small business insurance helps you with adequate protection.

At Simply Business, we can help you find a private tutor insurance policy that’s as unique as your business. This coverage can help protect you from common risks so you can continue delivering great work for your customers.

What Insurance Do Private Tutors Need?

If students visit your office, accidents and bodily injury could occur. The same is true if you’re working at a customer’s home, such as accidentally tripping over a chair and breaking it or hurting yourself and others. Business insurance is meant to help with property damage and medical costs associated with work performance.
