What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
The cheapest priced teacher is not always the best instructor. Review your teacher 's credentials and recommendations. A great teacher is not always an excellent performer. Many great performers do not know the first thing about teaching. Observe your teacher in how he or she instructs and what the teacher does when the student can't understand the instructions. Does the instructor offer alternative ways of learning a particular skill?
