So are we considering Sith Lords based on their life story, or their Force skills? Not sure if either approach will work.
Every student has different needs and abilities, which means that the teacher wil not be able to teach them exactly what is in their head. For example, you might have lived a similar life and have compatible philosophy, but that won't necessarily translate into equal fighting skills. Or, you might be able to master their lightsaber technique...but not understand their mental discipline.
Matching the two requires the input of a third party with an experienced point of view, who can see what the teaching of one will contribute to the other. Of course, Sith don't have such a hierarchy as the Jedi, but ideally that would be best.
