Hello, I'm no senior member here. But I can give you several advice:

1. As a support, you have to die for your ADC if they're in a crucial situation. Unless their HP is like 11, nothing you can do.

This is really bad advice, especially at lower levels. Unless you know your ADC has enough skill to carry, he isn't worth dying for.

2. Remember, that you are "less valuable" than your ADC. I know it sounds bad, but I don't know how to rephrase it! So, your death would be better than your ADC's death.

Assuming you know with 100% certainty you'll get a 1 for 1 or 2 for 1, don't sacrifice for ADC.

Here's a tip that would make your ad carry happy as he is farming under the turret, at lower level when the turret is attacking the caster minions, hit them once. This will allow your ad carry to last hit all of em without missing any. If you see any minion attacking a caster, then don't hit it. (I think around lvl 5-6 you don't have to do this anymore)

Also, it's important to have a map awareness. Most of league of legends players have tunnel visions, idk if you know what it means or not, but let's assume you don't! Tunnel vision means that they don't pay attention to anything other than their lane. I am guilty of this, but yeah I just wanted to stop by and tell you this. I hope it helps, I am sorry for my English, good luck to you!
