All you can really do IMO is ask about locally for teacher recommendations. Other than that it is really trial and error. Interview them before the first lesson. I've utilized 3 different teachers over the course of 12 years of formal lessons. Each had a different forte, something different and something good to offer me. But in my life I've had many other teachers in that trial and error process that I "fired" after just a few lessons. Some were fired because they were incompetent, some good players, but lousy teachers, some borderline psychopaths, some fairly decent, but simply no good chemistry or communication between us. Good Luck.
