New client looking for advice on how to procede

Hi, I've not used oDesk before myself, though I worked for a company who did.
I have two jobs that I need, which are completely unrelated:
1. I want to learn written and spoken mandarin chinese (simplified writing). I would like to get tutored possibly 2-3 times per week at a good rate.
2. I need a website similar in nature to:
For the first job, I found a huge list of people under the search 'mandarin tutor' and many look great. What should I do to move forward, should I just start randomly interviewing?
For the second job, after looking through the forums there are horror stories left and right, and it seems most of them are related to contractors scamming clients by doing shoddy work or not even working at all, then collecting some or all of the money.
I actually need the website, I'm not playing some silly game like that. What is the best way to get a full website done, should I do a job-based pay?
Any other tips to avoid being scammed, and to have a good first couple of experiences?
