Our students prefer to have one Tutor for their whole learning journey here with us. To avoid constant change in Tutors, we give our students a chance to choose the best Tutor for them for their regular classes. Students book 2 to 3 Trial Classes from different Tutors then chooses one as their personal Tutor for regularly scheduled classes.
The more Trial Classes you conduct, the more chances of you getting regular students.
Trial Classes are paid.

Ask whether they want to be corrected**
You can ask them about their goals/purpose and other specifics(what they want to see in the class, homework, etc.)
If the student is a kid, chances are, parents will be with them during the class. (You may ask them directly about what they want for their kids)

What color is this? (show him/her something)
