Simply, say you are unavailable for the next few months so you will be unable to, but will definitely contact her when you can!

OR

Just be honest, and say no!

Just be honest, tell her you don't think things are going to work for you. Tutors know different students want different things, so she'll understand if you don't think her teaching style will work for you.

Just gently decline and say that you don't need her help anymore and you have found another solution.
Or you just simply say no thank you
Remember, you are doing this for you and no one else, so just say it politely, other than that don't really dwell on her feelings too much.
Hope this helps!

I guess that would depend how you found her - if it's a family friend then you might want to be more casual, if it's someone you've hired then you can just be very polite about it.

Easy then - just email and say you appreciated the previous session but don't think it's the right approach for you going forward. Presumably you've paid her for her time, so nobody is losing out if you're just polite and honest.

As a private tutor myself, I recommend you just tell her that you do not require her services at the moment and/or you found someone else.

It is absolutely fine for you to say this and try not to feel bad about it!

She will understand this and move onto the next possible client. It is better to get it out of the way as soon as you can as to not waste her time; remember that she may not seek other clients while she is under the impression that you are a current client. Chances are this is not a first rejection for them so it's not the end of the world.

Thats alright!:heart:
I think it is best to keep it polite and formal and just say something like "Thank you so much for your teaching, but I don't think it suited my methods of learning, Thank you for your time!"
Or something along those lines so you don't come across rude in any way!
