Student's parents are divorced. Student begins taking lessons with me when the Dad can bring him, and the lessons are bi-weekly as a result. A month in, without telling me, Mom also gets him lessons on her weekends with him with a different teacher. I just found out about a month ago, but there's already been an interpretation difference in this student's solo.
What do I do? I've already expressed my concerns for this situation to the Dad and my student and my reasons for those concerns. He's still taking lessons with the other teacher. I've offered to have the lesson on a different day so the Mom can bring him on her weekends. No takers. I don't want to drop him as a student, but I don't think this is going to work out for anyone.
