Informative, harsh, and fact-based. The end-goal of my sessions is to set up a correct mindset for my students instead of being case-by-case and only providing solves for oddly specific situation. Climbing through fundementals alone is doable in a lot of cases and talent does not play a huge part as long as our goal is not going pro.

According to the needs of the students needs through communciation and observation. I would pick the ways where it benefits my students the most and try to let them improve in the most effecient manner.

There are multiple ways for me to keep up with the meta. Such as: Casting the competitve league, having multiple accounts for different roles and actively participating in tournaments.

As for my job being a caster for PCS , watching competitive scenes such as LCK and LPL constantly definitely helped me out a lot in terms of understanding the game at a bigger picture. For example, whenever a new tech or strat pops up from pros , I could then try to alter it a make them compatible for solo queue environment.

As for different roles and tournaments, they both provided me deep insights into how other players think in different circumstances (elo/roles/state of the game). It is benefitial for my coaching since I would then be able to kept on getting first-handed experience on all game changes.

Through out my 11 years of League adventure, I have never particiated in any form of boosting services. And I am not planning to do so in the future. And there are two main reasons:

1: I do not want to. Boosting ruins the game. I firmly believe if someone wants to climb, they should be climbing because of improvement and hardwork, not through cheating ;

2: I am not allowed to do so. I am a coach (even coached a team in Prime League before) and an official caster for Riot Games. Then of course it is prohibited.

I usually sent my students notes at the end of each session, which includes:
-Big Topics for what needs to be improved on (Laning, teamfights, rotation, etc.)
-Breaking down topics into smaller parts (Skillshots, kiting, map awareness)
-What needs to be done differently
-Assignements, training and homework until next time

On top of that, I also conclude my session before it ends. Mainly talking about the priority of the aspects we need to be working on to let me students keep themselves on track.

It is about breaking it down into small parts.
Usually I would start from the little things. Subtle movements, minor habits. And from there I would then try to look for patterns, and then figuring traits and playstyle out of a certain player.
With this method, I am capable to understand the strengths and weaknesses for my students. On top of that, I also get to understand what is the cause and the root which leads to them having the current playstyle.

By observing.
Different players has different ways of learning, just like studying in school. My strategies consist of trying to figure what training method suits my students the most through paying attention to what skills are they lacking ,directly asking them and a little bit of trial and error.

And I will swtich things up according to what suits my student the most.

I have provided team coaching before for the prime league in EU.
One of the aspect about communication that I learnt from my coaching experience for the competitive scene would be understanding the usage for words while communicating.

There are a lot of ways to communicate with the team. Body language, pings, atitude, usage of words (and more) all affects the message and how it's received.

The techniques I used to help my team to improve on these aspect are putting focus on the content on what the team is usually talking about and figuring the suitable role for each player (hyper-carry, combo-starter, follow-up, power farming, etc.). With that settled, each player then can just focus on their task and only give out suggestions and callouts in the area that they are good at.

Frequently asking questions.
League is not rocket science, and players shouldn't treat it as such. Whenever my students faces difficulties. I prefer spliting the situation in little small pieces, down to the basic, simple , and straight-forward questions. And eventually gathering enough clues to solve the puzzle. Most of the time my students are capable of answering themselves, further proving my point. And it also encourages my student to think for themselves in the future if they encouter simular but different situations.

I have a student that is an ADHD patient and was bronze when we started our session.
I didn't know my student has this kind of condition before our session start so the beginning is kind of rough. However, through communicating, we came up with a different plan together that pushes our efficiency to the max. We would only focus on a small topic and one to two main assigment (task) everytime as he is not capable of having enough attention span to keep track of multiple things as the same time. He reached Emerald in the same year.

What you expect vs What you can afford.

For your expectation, it's the best if you know what you need. Coaching style, champion pool, aspects you want to improve on, roles, are all great reference. It would be even more important if you are Master-GM+ . If you are an otp then looking for another otp, or at least a coach who is maining your role would be the optimal call.

For your budget, price is not the only factor here. Mental, time, talent are also things to consider. A player need games to improve, even kkOma from T1 couldn't do much if a player can only play 2 hours a week. So make sure you can afford not only to get the coaching session, but also the time and mentality to practice and put in the work after the session (or between the sessions if it's a long term plan)

Put these two things together. Think about your desire, then consider if the services from the coach is worth it. Looking at a coach's review to check more about the coach is also a great reference.
