What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure the instructor has played tennis before competitively and check to see how good they really are. You can look through USTA NorCal and see their rating and whether they've played tennis before.

Just ask them what their USTA rating was if they don't know what it is then maybe they never played competitively. Personally I am a 5.0 USTA rating which is advanced level

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Every student has different questions. But practicing is part of getting better and lessons is part of getting better as well.
