You've described me perfectly. I'm good at a lot of things in my life (and no, I don't put dance on that list yet ), but I jsut am not good at teaching what I know to other people. Have tried it with tech work in theatre, with various portions of my IT work, etc, just doesn't happen. Now both my sisters and my dad, they're teachers. None of them are working as teacher now (except for a couple night classes a week my dad teaches), but regardless, they all have the ability to take something they know, and explain it to someone else, particulrly a begginer (be it math music, dance, whatever), so that the person hearing it can understand and learn what is being discussed. I just can't do that. No matter how long I work in IT, or how many certifications I get, whatever, that's jsut a skill I don't seem to have. That's part of the reason I value my pro so much, because I couldn't dance at ALL when i started, and I had tried more than once to learn some, but it just never happened. I lucked out with pro randomly assigned to me though, she just does a great job of explaining things so I can understand them. Luckily for me, she also happens to be one of best dancers in our region of FA too.
