I've been a teacher at many grade levels, and I own a tutoring center that serves kids from age 4 to 18. I've tutored hundreds of students myself over 10 years. I've spent a lot of time trying to teach concepts, to students, peers, friends, direct reports, you name it. I say this because there is one thing that I beg you to listen to, and it's the number one issue I've seen in students at all levels: We just don't know what we don't know. People aren't great at seeing where their own understanding has small gaps. For any topic, we have a few lines of knowledge that we can spout, but we just aren't aware of the edge cases that exist until we see them. We don't have all the knowledge of how every topic intersects with every related one, and many times, those answers are not easy to figure out. Therein lies why experience is valuable. There is so much about even the basic Data Science topics that we haven't yet come across.
