I did a show for a coworker a month ago and got a booking from a lady... but she is the parent of one of my students that I teach now! I am not too nervous about it now, but assume I will be this evening. Does anyone have advice?

Don't be too nervous. The school year is almost over. You are both adults, just be professional and have a great time. It may even be the start of a wonderful new friendship.

I've done a show with the parent of one of my students (it was a couple of weeks after school was out last year.) The show was kind of a flop attendance wise, but she's been a wonderful repeat customer. Just relax and be yourself. It's NOT like parent teacher conferences! LOL! Besides that...she'll get to see just what a great "teacher" you are. I always say the "job" isn't much of a stretch for me....."standing up in front of someone and teaching them how to do something" is just another day at the office for me!!

I've done several shows ( now ) for parents of my students. It is always fine. We will talk school for a bit sometimes but mostly PC. I am sure you will have a great show!
And if ya think about it.. she may be as nervous as you.

I'm not a teacher, but I have done shows for people who are my professional contacts in my normal job .... including my June 5 show with a township trustee I interviewed. One of my best shows was through another area trustee who has become a customer and sort of a friend, and my best show EVER was from somebody who I've talked to for stories as well.

Just be yourself ... they booked with you because they like you!

When I do a show where people are likely to recognize me from the paper, I simply explain that I have a "day" job at the paper, and as everyone might realize, journalism doesn't pay very well, so I needed a backup plan! I'm sure the same can be said for teaching!

In case nobody suggested it already, just be yourself.
