There are many ways of finding a good English tutor in your locality: Recommendation, asking people, looking for poster, banner, handbill, etc. They are age-old, obsolete and time consuming. In spite of that, there is a risk of wrong choice as some people may recommend you an English teacher closely attached to him, may be his friend or relatives. Sometimes, people recommend you a teacher to get commission from him. At times, guardians exaggerate a teacher to get some advantages and monetary benefits from him. 

This is why, in today’s age of information, the best way of choosing it is searching online. It is very easy and least time consuming. You can easily choose your best tutor without leaving the cozy comfort zone of your drawing room.

Your search may be specific and apt so that you can get a good number of tutors teaching in your locality. Just presume you live in Baguiati or Kestopur. What should be your specific search term?   Your search term would be English tutor at Baguiati in Kolkata or English tuition at Baguiati in Kolkata. If you are from Kestopur, you will write English tutor at Kestopur in Kolkata or English tuition at Kestopur in Kolkata. Here one thing you must know: how search engines work. Mind it; search engine giant Google does not take pronouns, articles and conjunctions into its consideration.  It strips away largely irrelevant words. Therefore, you would get the similar result, if you write “English Tutor Baguiati Kolkata” and “English Tuition Baguiati Kolkata” instead of “English tutor at Baguiati in Kolkata” and “English tuition at Baguihati in Kolkata” respectively. It will save your time.  Similarly, if you are at Kestopur in Kolkata, you can write, “English Tutor Kestopur Kolkata” and “English Tuition Kestopur Kolkata”
For Airport just write, “English Tutor Airport Kolkata” or “English Tuition Airport Kolkata”.
 For Dum Dum, “English Tutor Dum Dum Kolkata” or “English Tuition Dum Dum Kolkata”
For lake town, “English Tutor Lake Town Kolkata” or “English Tuition Lake Town Kolkata”
For Haldiram, “, “English Tutor Haldiram Kolkata” or “English Tuition Haldiram Kolkata”
For Teghoria, “, “English Tutor Teghoria Kolkata” or “English Tuition Teghoria Kolkata”
For Salt Lake, “English Tutor Salt Lake Kolkata” or “English Tuition Salt Lake Kolkata”

2. You can use plus sign among the words, just like “English tutor+ Baguiati+ Kolkata”, to make your search more specific. 

3. Mind it; if you write the best English tutor Kestopur Kolkata, you will get the site that matches the term “the best English tutor Kestopur Kolkata” or near to like “the best English private tutor Kestopur Kolkata”, best English home tutor Kestopur Kolkata and many like these. Therefore, you get a teacher who uses these key phrases in his web content. There may be a chance of wrong choice, unless you make a market enquiry. You may not get the best. You may get on who uses same or similar keywords or key-phrases. 

4. Therefore, before you final selection, you must inquire about him. You must talk to the students who have taken English coaching from him. You can talk to them who is taking coaching now. 
  
5. Visit to his website, if he has any.

6. Know his specialty. Know if he specializes in teaching your board.

7. Know how many students he teachers in a batch.

8. Does he take care for the weak and backbenchers?

9. Once you are aware of all the above-mentioned points, you can select your teacher.
You can take them as the thumb rules of finding the best. Apply them sincerely. Get a bright future, choosing the best teacher for you.
