The best teacher for a beginneris yourself.
Having someone else teach you puts you under their beliefs and their practice, instead, the best place to start is to buy some books and read lots of articles from lots of reliable sources. This allows you to gain a large amount of knowledge from multiple sources all written by different individuals, with different beliefs.
If after learning and discovering yourself, you decide on a singular path, then you can find someone to help guide you, who also follows that path, but most who have studied for long enough to offer wisdom, have their own opinions on topics and their own beliefs on how you should and should not practice which may not be the best for someone starting with a clean slate looking to explore different paths and ways of thinking.
