Hi everyone. So I have a question about coaching. Can a right-handed coach teach a left-handed newbie learner? Thanks for reading. Looking forward to your answer.

at the beginner stage why not?
however, for tactics a lefthander needs to talk to people with lefty experience so that he can appreciate lefty vs righty tactic (from both ends of the table)
Basically the tactics they use against each other are mirror images. What they are I’ll let somone else have a go
I was lucky to have a strong lefty practice partner for many years and it was a huge help

Makes little difference at any stage. One of the most respected coaches here in UK is a lefty and has a proven track record of coaching right-handled players into the top 10 England ranking list.

It should make no difference. Coaches have knowledge. If you are looking for someone to actually do the left handed stroke, that is a practice partner. The two roles are often confused. The strokes will be the same, the tactics will change. A good coach should easily handle this.
