Spiritual teachers fall into several subcategories: Shaykhs or Sufi teachers, Gurus (including Hindu Gurus, Sant Mat Gurus, and Sikh Gurus), Buddhist teachers, including Tibetan Lamas (which is really simply the Tibetan word for Guru), and Mahasiddhas, who may be claimed by both Buddhist and Hindu traditions.
There are also many Western spiritual teachers, some claim a spiritual lineage from the East and some do not.
The concept of spiritual teacher is derived from Western tradition and comes from broader term of spirituality.
