You're in your own home and on your own territory, it's them who are coming onto yours so they will maybe be nervous. Just be yourself and if you feel you 'click' with them, things will be fine and if you feel uncomfortable or they seem it, who knows, maybe it's not for you. That's how I do it anyway! :D

Good luck, be friendly. :thumbsup:

Good luck from a fellow jitterer - I get SO nervous and take it personally when they don't want me (silly I know).

Take Sue's advice - you won't go far wrong.

Good advice given already! I have found that if I have 'clicked' with parent, contract is signed there and then!! Those i've not clicked with i've never heard back from!! Good luck, let us know how you get on!!:)
