Clearly you don't subscribe to the "you get what you pay for" theory.

Or, then again, maybe you do.  :P

Doesn't sound unreasonable.  A lot of teachers do the first lesson free.  10 pounds... About $20/30min?  I could see someone going for it.

But signing up for lessons from someone online?  In the wrong section of the forum?  From someone with one post?  Sure...

not to mention no location specified!  For the OP -- you may not have noticed yet, but this group is, quite literally, all over the world!

I was thinking online lessons. 

Dear Sir, 

Please meet at my house at 5pm on Tuesday. 



Except they should charge for that first lesson so they can get a payment in advance.  Or maybe they'll pay the lesson taker and overpay and then have to have the lesson taker give them a small amount back right away before the original amount clears.
