As an ADC, you have to hope your support knows how to prep minions for you to help you clear faster to push. =/
SUPPORTS, LEARN TO PREP MINIONS <3

its not always about pushing faster you know, but I would agree supports should know how much damage they deal so they can help the adc get farm, and farm when the adc isn't close by

Well no, but when you do want to push cause both bots are backed and there are 3 top or something then pushing faster is the key.

One thing I personally find helps me a lot is to look at the attack animations of the minion. Usually, if you're an experienced player, you can see how much damage you do to a ranged or melee creep after a few tries. However, it can be tricky to catch the CS since you still have to hit it while it's health bar is decreasing due to other sources of damage (the enemy minions). However, look at the attack animations of the caster and melee minions, and you will notice that the health bar drops predictably and not so random. Also, try to be somewhat familiar with how much damage a caster minion does, and how much damage a melee minion does, to the other minions (this also goes for a cannon minion). Also, don't feel obligated to take a chance. If I'm playing Morgana, and I've got 5 creeps focusing a tank, I'm going to just last hit that with Dark Binding every time, instead of trying to manipulate a Morgana auto.

Dumb question: do different skins of the same character have the same animation timing? I played two practice games with Ahri to work on my timing and I noticed that with the standard skin I was pretty on point but when I switched to the Foxfire skin its seemed like it was off. Is that in my head? Thanks

Its all from the help of the runes and masteries really along with the champion. AND you have to know the champion you play well and how much they deal damage, par example i know the amount of damage that comes from Draven or Any range characters because of my masteries and runes, so i use that and take it into fact of home much it deals damage, PERSONALLY i suggest you experiment first really, then go on from there, and as for Ganks Ward ward ward
