The Bay Area is fortunate to have many world-class Tango instructors, both in residence and visiting.
Choosing a dance teacher is very personal. It helps if they are geographically near to you, so that it will be easier to attend the classes. What is most important is that you like their personality and their teaching style. Not everyone who looks good dancing is a good teacher and vice versa. If you are new to Tango, I recommend trying out a few teachers and taking privates and group classes until you find one or a few that resonate with you. Just about all teachers are available for private lessons, so definitely contact them to ask their availability. Private lessons are one of the best ways to improve your dance quickly. Group classes are equally important because practicing with different people helps attune you to different styles of dancing. Classes are also a great place to make friends and find practice partners. May this list guide you in choosing the best tango instructor for you.
