Ask for relevant information
Check that you know the subject, level, and exam board of the student as part of your messaging. It's good practice to find this out upfront, if the client has not mentioned it.
Confirm where and when
In order to progress the conversation, be sure to start suggesting where and when the tutoring might take place.
This is the most important factor. Using the "suggest lesson" feature makes it easier for clients to book a lesson with you, as they only need to click "book" to purchase a lesson with you
