What are you looking for? What are you looking for in a informal teacher? Have you had a good experience with an informal teacher? What lessons would you like structured?

That did not address my questions at all, instead your comment was a boorish reply insulting my questions. I asked these question for the purpose of gaining students. I am an informal tutor thus per itaki suggestions I discuss a range of topics with my students and I vary my teaching style for all of my students. During the conversations with my students I let them lead the lesson, I never assume what a student wants. I try to be very engaged, if a student and I are talking about cooking I may attempt to create a recipe with them. I do not just listen and reply with my students, I like to give them real world context. I do this because I have found many of my student ask for it and enjoy it. So when I ask "what are you looking for in an informal teacher" I really want responses from potential new students that may want something outside of the norm.

Look, just like ITALKI has already explained to us during our registration as professional or informal tutors, if you are an informal tutor, then you should simply speak with your students about so many topics and correct them whenever they make mistakes and maybe give some kind of advice how they can improve their conversation in English. For example, whenever I take classes with my Italian informal tutor, I simply expect he's going to correct me, to tell me maybe some phrases that are used in his region, to explain me my mistakes, etc I hope this helps.
