Of course you can. You are helping a friend's daughter with her English homework.

I suppose you can start teaching anyone you like but you cannot just start charging money for it. That would be working and earning, which is being self employed etc.!

If it's a dependent B permit with work authorization there is no reason she can't teach and be paid for it.

I shan't. There were quite a few errors in the English of your posting. Perhaps you should brush up on the rules yourself first? You don't want to pass on your mistakes to your friend's child!

If you earn below a certain limit, and assuming you're legally allowed to work, some cantons won't require you to make a return. Otherwise, you must either set yourself up as self-employed, or be an employee of your friend. Of course, if you were helping the child with homework, and the parent, entirely unconnectedly hands over some cash as a gift, then it's unlikely to attract any attention.

Re: can i give private tuitions?

Whether you are trying to save typing time or for any other reason, it is not very courteous to other members, particularly those who are not of English mother tongue and may be picking up your errors to add to their own, to leave your typing mistakes and just hope that members will understand. Txt spk with abbreviations is not permitted anyway.

I don't think he is referring to the abbreviations.

Re: can i give private tuitions?

miniMia- I didn't mean to infer she has no right to work or earn, I meant you can't "just start" without checking the legality of the situation. A lot of people think if they "just" give classes it is all above board and it may well not be.

Re: can i give private tuitions?

I think most people would just do it.

It's not as if you are going to rob a bank.

Obviously don't give her any typing lessons....

You are right. I didn't quite read to the end. I stopped at "permit b. is it ok..." & missed the "just start" part.

Non-mother tongue anything isn't the "best" resource outside the native tongue... I've met very, very few, (meaning two so far) people that I would consider to be on par in English with mother tongue - and they still make up grammar/words here and there.

And your issue isn't the txt, it's the clear Hindi roots. Nothing wrong with Hindi, if that were what was being taught.

Well that changes everything! We all know that time travelers are immune to grammar and spelling. Due to the ever-changing temporal coordinates, there's no way to verify a reference point and thus, cannot be corrected; what with convention shifts and yesterday actually being experienced as next week and all.
