Firstly you must visit a couple of schools near you to see get nearest look on wing chun teachers, I think as many of wing chun kung fu fans that Phil Nearing is the best wing chan teacher in Chicago even he pushing 60 years old and still strong master, He also is very skilled in BJJ earning his belts from Carlson Gracie.First thing visit a couple of schools to see if you like the teacher.
Along with the fact that you only I mean you are the practitioner the fisrt princible of progression in martial arts training because the best teacher for you may not be the best fighter or the one with the most years of study.

Some recommendations of wing chun kung fu masters and teachers I found round there:
- Wing Chun in North Suburbs Tony Kariotis teaches north of Chicago called Glenview. His website is www.mukjong.com, He's a bit eccentric but very well experienced and informed.
- William Cheung Wing Chun in Chicag: I donot know if this school still there or not but anyway Sifu Milan is he teacher and he also a certified personal trainer (which means you won't be getting the lazy man's/woman's wing chun here) and he also teaches Qi Gong which has helped me help to relax, destress and focus better.
- Wong Shun Leung lineage. which in my biased opinion, is the best. and proven.
- Amazing collection of kung fu schools/classes in chicago, PA, WA, and NY Citites added every day at Children Martial Arts Blog
