Go and observe lessons. Find out the teachers background and philosophy. Teachers who work from their own studio are usually better than those who travel. Ask them what they expect to cover in an average lesson.
They should look at their own time and activities and make sure they have enough time to practice every day. Regular practice on a good instrument is the best way to become proficient. It's about training not fun.
