How can I turn down a job offer after I've already accepted it?
I've been working 4 days per week which is perfect for me but a few months ago, I found myself in a bit of a financial jam so I posted an ad as a math tutor for extra money - I started with 2 students over the summer and accepted 3 more starting in September - now I find that with my job and 2 evenings of tutoring, I don't see my family enough and I want to give up the tutoring job - I've grown quite fond of the 2 kids over the summer and I feel really terrible about 'dropping' them - I also don't know how to explain my decision to the other 3 who are expecting my services starting next week. Please help!

you simply tell them.. it is more than you can handle at the moment and your family comes first and you MUSTspend more time with them... plain and simple p.s. you may want to refer them to another tutor if you have or know some names to give them
