    If a question comes up and you're not sure of the answer, deflect it by saying that you don't have the time to cover that now and then check it before the next lesson.

    I agree with tdol's advice. In addition, if you're asked a question that you don't know the answer to, you could say, "That's a very good question. I'm not sure myself. Let me look into it for you, and I'll let you know what I find the next time we meet."

    All the best,
