So I had posted a couple of weeks ago that I was asked to tutor a student with Down's Syndrome for the summer, but then had all of these scheduling conflicts with mom. The last communication I had with her was when I sent her a june/july calendar with all of the dates that either of us were unavailable blocked off, and explained that it was impossible to get the five weeks in. I told her I understood if she wanted to go with someone else to get all of the hours finished, but if she wanted me to still do a few hours with him to look at the calendar and let me know. I told her I needed to have my summer work schedule set by the end of the school year. Well, today is the last day and I haven't heard a peep from her so far...I sent the e-mail about two weeks ago. So I guess my question is, assuming she doesn't suddenly e-mail me within the next 6 hours, what should my next steps be? This was set up through the school ESY program and they were supposed to be paying me directly (rather than the mom paying me) through my ESY time card. I'm guessing I should just e-mail the director, explain the situation, and say that the mom didn't get back to me so I will not be able to tutor the student this summer. Should I send anything to the mom? I'm just afraid if I send her any communication she'll just reply back and ask for more time, etc. I was kind of hoping to get out of the whole tutoring thing anyway due to what a hassle it's been already, and the fact that with so few hours the money wouldn't really be worth it anyway.
