Sometimes coaches say "go practice and play some matches" and kids retreat to the couch and Xbox. Then the next week at the lesson, the kid still sucks.
Not saying that's what happened. Just offering an alt theory. Since you're so quick to fault the pro 100% and criticize the family for paying money.
Do you also expect a kid to learn algebra the first day they see it in class? Or do they make them go to a class 5 days a week, do homework, take tests an quizzes, maybe even get a tutor?
