Is This the Right Fit for Me?
You have a knack for teaching people. You like finding a way to impart knowledge to someone in a way they understand, and you especially love to do that with hands-on learning! At the very least, you’ve got a solid book knowledge about the areas you’ll cover, and you’re willing to keep learning alongside people. You know even an expert has more to learn. You’re approachable, understandable, and enthusiastic about empowering people to excel at their own home projects.
