A good coach is not just a good player.
A good coach is a great listener and an outstanding problem solver.

My style is simple: don't overcomplicate things - don't let students try to run before they walk. Teach them how easy the game is when you know what to do, instead of teaching them how complex the game is and learning said complexity.

Thanks to having some background in psychology on top of my esports and gaming experience, my style is unique among coaches. I don't give out generic advice and game plans, but rather, specific problem solving tools to change the mind and decisions of a player.

I also do a lot of mechanics coaching - a coach can help you with them, and I know how to.

This is what puts me in #1 in the world in Fiverr and the best student success and satisfaction rate in the industry, allowing me to do this for a living.

Playing the game in different elos is one of the best things you can do. Playing the game in, for example, Gold accounts for a couple hours will give you a way better grasp of the meta in those elos and allow you to coach them better.

So first of all coach and play in all elos. Metas are different in each elo.

Secondly, reading patch notes and following them closely.

Third, don't just follow what other pros are doing but rather understand why behind everything. Consume content as well.

As a Challenger player, I can do it if I wanted, but this is not allowed by Riot and I wouldn't dare risking my coaching career on another industry that has higher risk and lower monetary compensation.

Gamestate is king. Analyze what's the current and past state of the game to determine best possible outcomes. After that, analyze whether, if the correct outcome was chosen, was the execution also correct.

Don't ignore mechanics and understand the real issue behind each thing. For example, be good at analyzing why you got hit by a skillshot, rather than saying that getting hit by it is bad/"just dodge". Analyze why it wasn't dodged down to the mouse usage. Avoid things like "you were greedy", instead giving a proper analysis of the risk/reward

Pinging is a big part of playing better. The game has no voice chat so pings are our way of talking to each other. Learn to ping and to be assertive without being scared of the outcome.

Don't always follow your team thinking that's the same as helping. You can help them more by doing other things that relieves pressure from them. Try to make the game easy for your team, not better for you only.

Rapport, "the sandwich method" (compliment/judgement/compliment), honesty and no sugar coating, yet no screaming nor disrespect or frustration. Cool head, some people call my coaching chill and almost ASMR

Look for people without an ego who aren't trying to flex their knowledge or rank on you. Look for coaches who value simplification and communication over "being right". You should be listened to even if your gameplay or concepts are "wrong".

Look for red flags such as hiding rank, saying that they can't help with mechanics, exaggerating things, people who argue a lot with others or try to bring other coaches or players down. Also, in my opinion, you should look for the highest ranks possible such as Challenger, a lot of people call Master/low Grandmaster high elo but in my opinion it's not enough to coach to a really good degree. Unless you want help on a specific champion, don't look for OTPs, and look for people who play as many roles as possible and have not only deep but also wide knowledge.
A good coach is professional and not arguing a lot.
