Hey there, I'm Leolynn and this is my second detailed guide and you can take a look for my Shen guide in my profile.

Here is the Guide
In the early game, you should prioritize farming and only fight when you have an opportunity to heavily damage or kill your opponent. Ward the bush on your side with a control ward and the opposing bush with your trinket when you push. You may also want to keep a ward for mobility if you know the enemy jungler is not on your side of the map.
When your jungler is Topside, you have a couple of options. You can either wait for his gank to kill the enemy top laner, or you can push the wave to gain lane priority and contest the scuttling or invade the enemy jungle. The enemy will be forced to choose between giving up minions to follow you, or leave his teammate in a 1v2.
At level 6, you reach a small powerspike as Jax. The bonus magic damage every third hit is an insane dps buff and you can use it to harass your enemy with small bursts or go all in for the kill.
At this point you can most likely 1v1 the opposing toplaner easily, unless he is a super tank, so you should start forcing him to fight you. This way, you will either take turrets and generate a lot of pressure in the top lane, or force the enemy jungler and mid to roam and stop you. This gives your team the ability to 4 man the enemy bot and secure dragon and turrets there.
You might want to keep your Teleport in case you need to join them.
TELEPORT / SPLITPUSH TIPS
Jax is a splitpush duelist by default. So it is natural that you will spend most of the game in a sidelane killing minions. But knowing when to split and which lane to push is important, and Teleport helps you decide what to do.
There are 2 sidelanes on the map, Top and Bot, and 2 objectives (aside from turrets), Dragon and Baron. When your Teleport is up, you want to splitpush in the lane away from the objective your team is playing. And when it is on cooldown, you want to push the one that is close to the objective.
This way, you force the enemy to react to your pushing while also being able to join your team for the teamfight.
TIPS AND TRICKS
The classic 3rd hit burst combo
You don't have to attack the same target three times to get the bonus damage from your R's passive. Using this, you can auto attack a minion once (or twice), use Q on the enemy and do an easy Autoattack + W combo for some burst damage. This combo lets you deliver 2 autoattacks, one W proc and one R proc quickly
The long range stun
When you want to stun an enemy for whatever reason but he is just outside your Q range, remember that your E can stun in a small circle around you giving you some extra range. So, you can jump to something that is close to him, or place a ward and jump, to get just in range for your E to catch him. You will not be able to damage him with your Q, but your stun will reach him.
