^She was said to be her mentor and teacher. That doesn't make her a greater witch. In martial arts students of grand masters usually become better than their teachers. As they add on to the knowledge of their teacher. 

There is nothing in 3x08 to suggest she was more powerful than Esther. Only that she was Esther's friend and mentor even after Esther's death.
