Your question is very vague. Usually between the azan and iqamah of fajr, zohr, asr and isha, one would have time to pray the sunnah that comes before the salah. Rasulullah prayed these salah at home and we should make good on this practice. One can also pray the tahiyatul musjid, if they prayed the sunnah at home.
We must note: tahiyatul musjid is viewed as nafl. Taking priority into account, preference is to be given for the sunnah Muakadah of the time over nafl tahiyatul musjid as an appropriate first choice.
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
