Hi,

--Do coach, trainer, and teacher collocate the following text well and convey about the same idea? Many thanks to you in advance.

    Many thanks to you bibliolept.
    I'm enamoured of your suggestion "instructor."
    Nevertheless, I'd like to know if coach, trainer, and teacher work in the text.

    Teacher and trainer would be acceptable; coach is not as suitable a word, because it's mostly used for sports or in a few specific situations, especially one-on-one training.

    I'm thinking the way you're thinking, but the original text uses "coach." I find it weird.
