To students and teachers alike,
We all have the need for a teacher at some point in our lives, unfortunately we do not get to choose our teachers at school, but when we get older and have private lessons it is another story.
So, it would interesting to know how you make your choice. Do you go by gender, physical looks, qualifications, or...?
I personally go by the physical look hoping to find someone with a similar personality to me, or similar views- and yes, I know first impressions are usually wrong. After that it would be experience, I think. How about you?
