What to do if you know that you can’t tutor the student who contacted you?
- If you know you won’t be able to teach the student based on their question, it’s in your best interest to let them know quickly and honestly in your reply --- and of course, leave it on a positive note! You never know who might turn into a future referral or booking, even if it doesn’t work out right away.

TEMPLATE: (personalize as you see fit)
Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out to me! Unfortunately, I am all booked up at the moment so it sounds like I might not be the best teacher for you right now, but if there’s something else I can help you with in the future, I’d love to work with you!
Also, here's a quick tip - if you use the code FREE120 then you can get two free hours of tutoring!
In the meantime, please reach out to the GoPeer Team for personalized recommendations.
