you and your reading can teach you best.
it looks like i am repeating what others also say.
books which are respected learning tools can teach you.
as you read forum activity that can help.
i am thinking, that eventually you will run into a mentor, though i have not found one face to face.
i have a couple of "teachers" online who have kind of chosen me.
not in the classroom format though.
are there classes here?
i am not certain.if there are specific things which you are drawn to, you can look on u tube. you can compare and contrast different paths, or techniques within a path there.
if you are sincere, you can probably decipher which ones are more helpful. when i came along there wasn't such fingertip ease of knowledge obtaining.
i say take advantage,
you can even look at books online before buying.
you can go the old fashioned route to the library too.
you are asking so look into why you are asking for the direction to take.
