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

Visit first.  Be comfortable with the instructor's demeanor, and teaching space.  Remember that an excellent performer may not be an excellent instructor.  Teaching experience counts the most.  Commitment is involved, ask questions.  

Ask about any agreements or policies.  Month to month payments may be best at first.  

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

Have a goal.  For instance:  I want to sing in a rock band some day!  I want to be able to play some Chopin or Mozart within a few years!  Not sure what I want to do with it, but I'd love to play violin!  I'm goin to sing in school chorus, and need to read better.  For little kids, sometimes parents just want them to have fun and be able to play in concerts.  Got this here guitar, and want to rock it!

All these are typically valid, and good openers for a first visit.
