True, if I have a student who wants lesson at 4pm on Tuesday for two hours that is their spot until they give it up. Now if they change it up our can only make it once a month or so, their spot may shift to what's available. I will also try to coordinate with other parents who may do every other week and have a day or so set aside to fit in other students with the same issue. But, the parent needs to be specific and honest with pro about time, availability issues.
