    Is this sentence right? Please advice.

    I didn't get to see the teacher today because the student who had appointment before mine went beyond the limit and his time spilled over my appointment time. So, because of that, the teacher told me to come back tomorrow.

    A better thread title would have been I didn't get to see the teacher today because. . .

    Note spelling of Please advise.

    not a Teacher

    Is this paragraph grammatically correct?
    Please advise, thank you.

    ( and his time spilled over my appointment time.So, , << you already said that.)
    Because of this, the teacher told me to come back the next day. (Think about why tomorrow isn't a great word choice here.)
