Finding the right tutor

Hello! I just wanted to see if anyone had advice on good strategies to find and effective tutor/language partner to complement work on LingQ? For instance walking through grammar textbooks is probably not the helpful; nor is a tutor/partner that expects you, as a beginner, to guide/manage the conversation. Has anyone found a strategy on which to coach language tutors on how to supplement other reading input to further help grow vocabulary? Thanks!
