Well first even though you have a lifeguard certificate you must be fully registered with the ASA American Swim Association or Austswim or similar swimming association before you can even start teaching.

Then you must have a council permit to allow you to conduct a business in a residential area Also you need a to apply for registered business number and tax file or social security number.

Also your parents must advise their insurance company, you are running this business from their property. Which will raise their insurance premiums to fully cover X amount of persons for public liability insurance in case on of your students gets injured.

You needed to have all of this in order way before you even handed out fliers. As for charging students for swimming lessons, you can't until you get these things.

You can tell the parents who have called, you can offer your services as a baby sitter and "show " their children how to swim.

"Don't ever mention the words "Teach", Teacher or "Coach" to legally cover yourself. If the council or insurance company or I.R.S come to investigate. You can be heavily fined, also if one of these kids get hurt you can tell your parents to say" bye bye house".

I know you have good intentions and want to earn some cash. Sorry to tell you this, but this is the law. If they didn't have these laws, anyone could run a business from their house.
