    My friend asks me to babysit her kids. And I say:

    I don't know how good I'll be as a babysitter, but I can definitely help out.

    VS

    I don't know how good I would be as a babysitter, but I could definitely help out.

    VS

    I don't know how good I would be as a babysitter, but I can definitely help out.

    Are all three okay?

    What's the difference between the first and second sentences?

    Can someone please help with this question? It's been two days since I wrote it and it has fallen off the front page.
