It's never been an issue for me. I have never had a student that was better than me. If they were, I would probably suggest that they move on to another instructor. I'm a pretty good coach and I can be pretty analytical but if the drummer is better than me, he is probably better off studying with the drummers that I try to take lessons from, Peter Erskine, George Marsh, Jeff Hamilton et al. I'm sure those guys could provide more insight than I could.
