How are you doing today? My name is Gregory Broomfield. I came across your e-mail at the University of California Los Angeles, Department of Physics and Astronomy  under People's portal. I seek for a private tutor for my Daughter. I would like to know if you would be available for the job and I would provide you with more details my daughter.

I would also like the lessons to be at your location. Kindly let me know your policy with regard to the fees, cancellations, location and make-up lessons. Also, get back to me with your area of specialization and any necessary information you think that might help.

Once you confirm your availability, I would provide you with more helping details.  The lessons can start by 31st of August.

Looking forward reading from you.

Best regards,
