I wouldn't bother complaining about the coaching - if it is free especially. If you can find a coach that can teach you everything you need to know, consider yourself lucky. Often you learn different things from different people. That guy may have some things he teaches well, maybe clearing a log. Most of us in the 90's had to do that with the seat all the way up. Upright bike cornering was actually a thing in the 90's. The tires back then didn't always have side knobs so you were supposed to corner that way. I learned that technique years ago and then as tires, geo and tech imroved I also learned modern day cornering. This being said, I still use the old technique sometimes - it comes in handy in really tight trees when you can't dip your bike into the corner without clipping trees.
