Teaching is an acquired skill, like any other.
What ever the subject, the best teachers are those who thoroughly know that subject and know how to teach it.
Knowing just one of the above isn't good enough.
Especially important is being able to counter all the usual excuses for why the student can't do that.
Like their grand-father didn't do it that way.
Or that's not the way they saw it done on tv.
Where an amateur attempting to teach would get stumped, a real teacher knows how to change the student's mind instead of arguing with them.
Walt Kelly, alias Pogo, sez:
“Don't take life so serious, son, it ain't nohow permanent.”
