    legally? I got an A* at GCSE and am taking it for AS Level, I am good but not properly fluent, would it be ok to teach beginners? Because I think I would enjoy doing this a lot more than any other job,

    Only if you are going to tutor for SATS or the 11+. Nobody will hire someone who barely got their GCSEs five minutes ago to tutor for GCSEs.

    Yes providing people would pay for your service rather than somebody who is fluent. You would probably have to be CRB checked depending upon who/where you teach.
    You wouldn't be able to charge much either, maybe £8 for an hour's lesson (not including time you would spend marking homework- I assume you'd set your students small tasks to complete each week) seeing as you're not experienced.

    I'm not planning to tutor GCSE's at all I was thinking primary or year 7 to 9, and I realize that I won't be able to charge much...

    So looks like I won't be breaking any laws, which is always a good start...

    There's absolutely nothing stopping you teaching someone else something if they're willing to pay you for the privilege.
