What strategy tips will help me solve Wordsearch puzzles?

The main strategy if you wish to be methodical is to start at the top left, and look from left to right in each row.

Then repeat from the bottom right to top left, this time therefore finding words placed backwards horizontally.

Then go through looking for vertically placed words in the same manner, first looking from top to bottom in each column, then bottom to top.

Finally try moving diagonally from each letter in each direction to find the diagonally placed words.

However many enjoy casual searching of the grid to find the words.

If you get really stuck and cannot find one or two words, then you can be methodical and start from say top left of the grid and look for every occurance of the first letter of that word in the grid, then move out from that letter in all directions until you discover the letter that is part of that word.
