A good instructor is patient and should display a sincere willingness to help you. Your instructor should understand that you are a student, nothing more. There shoud be a keen interest in making you a better player. If you are taking one hour lessons and your teacher stops at exactly one hour even if you are still trying to work something out, it's time to get a new one. Oh, one last thing, instructors can't make you practice, they are not magicians. Need I say more!
