I've just finished tutoring at a new student's house & the place was a mess. I'm not talking about a lived in house, that's got a bit of clutter here & there, but literally, disgusting!! There was cat poo on the kitchen floor & in the hallway, food droppings & dirty clothes on the floor. The lesson was in the kitchen & the kitchen table had used food/dirty plates/grease on it. I had to shove things to one side to find space I was desperate to use the loo & saw in the corner of the bathroom a used sanitary towel. I kid you not!! This was a GCSE student & her parents want her to have some help as she didn't do too well in her mocks. It was very hard to focus on the task in hand (the student didn't seem to mind), but my paperwork/and files got a bit greasy & I felt my hands touching the sticky table a lot. I have to go back next week. (But feel I don't want to!!) Should I ask them to clear the table a bit so we can work? Or would it be too rude?I've never tutored anywhere as dirty as this.
