I received an email from a parent and I'm not sure how to respond to it. They basically say their child has just started lessons through a school initiative and they're thinking about getting more lessons for the child. If the child enjoys the lessons they might take it further. They also said my profile appeals because I mentioned the dread word fun and they say it's more for fun right now. I have done advertising in the past where I say “Happy to teach towards exams or just for fun” so I suppose it's down to bad wording on my part.
I'm trying to work out how to respond to this; obviously if the child is already having lessons I don't want to encourage them having 2 teachers, even if the other lessons aren't going well! I can sort of understand the parent's point of view that if the school lessons aren't working out they want to make sure a new teacher is right for them, but I feel uncomfortable with the whole situation, not least because I don't know if they are looking for another teacher because the first one isn't working out or if they just think having two teachers would be better than one.
