Hi Tim. I am a full time teacher. I am thinking of leaving my job and working as a full time tutor from home. I will see students on a one on one basis and charge them and hourly rate OR I will travel to other students and charge them an hourly rate.

Can I claim against expenses that I incur whilst tutoring eg: at home - electricity, Internet, cellphone usage to contact students, travel costs when going to students, laptop purchase for work etc. Thank you.

Yes you can, these would be direct income earning related expenses. Do you intend to have a separate office/classroom at home? Click here to learn what you can claim.
