I'm a 3.5 rated player who wants to get to 4.0 by end of next year. I'm looking for a good instructor who can help me achieve that goal. Any recommendations? I do not want to join another private club (actually belong to one now). Thanks.

Check the high school courts. Usually there are several instructors.
Some give group lessons, others are one on one. Prices will vary.

Also go to the tennis tournaments (McFarlin Tennis Center) for example.
There you will find the best players, make friends, ask if
they give lessons & set up a time for later.

Years ago, when I was rated 3.5, I took a lesson from a player who
was rated 5.0.
He was very good at instructions, but it was difficult to apply the good
techniques he gave me.
I realized that no matter how good the instructions were....
it took time for the body to make the adjustments and be comfortable
on how to hit the ball correctly for better results.

I did win a couple 3.5 singles tournaments years ago, but I really had
no concept on how to use all of the body for better results.
It took hours of hitting at the wall also hitting with a player who
knew how to rally and keep the ball in play to achieve consistency.

JCC has excellent courts and trainers. Ask if they give private lessons. They used to few years ago.
