Whether the work with your teacher or coach will be effective or not, is not only defined by them! They need to know who you are as a singer. They depend on your input, questions and feedback, in order to be able to give you what you came for.
So how do you provide them with that essential information before starting to work with them? Do YOU know who you are as a singer? And do you know what your goals are?
Also when working on your own, without a teacher or coach, looking for the answers to these questions will help you to train much more effectively.
