Ok thanks but i still would kinda like someone to ask questions and be able to actually talk to who is better than me because ive watched many many youtube videos idunno... although youre probably right- i probably just need to practice and i can just inspect my own solves. but also im wondering if there is a way to learn faster because its token me an entire 7 months to be sub 15 from being 1 min and it just takes so long to learn and i really want to be fast :( EDIT Wait SHO3L4C3 you do solve critiques?- edit 2 Wait you only have a 21 single nevermind...

Everyone learns at their own pace. Some are like Leo Borromeo, becoming a god at just 13, some are like Feliks, who took 10 years to become sub 7.

Dumb argument because Feliks came on the speedcubing scene really rapidly too. His first comp he set OcRs and his second comp ever he set the 3x3 WR. You should also know that he set the first sub-7 wr in 2013.

I would say that you should only consider paid coaching if you've exhausted every free resource available to you and you're still stuck. These include analyzing your own solves, asking for advice online, watching videos and learning things from them, and simply practicing.
Thank you that sounds exactly right and is the best reply I’ve got

That was an ao5 wr, which isn't really enough to be considered consistently sub 7.
He did set the wr and he is already sub 10 on his first comps, so I guess I'm wrong about that sorry.
