Although I have learned much in school, much of what I know is self-taught, above and beyond academics. Since I have always been fascinated by the learning process, I have always enjoyed working with teaching others and helping them learn (also by teaching themselves) so that they can be as independent as possible. For example, I went for my Revit Architecture 2012 Associate Certification. Because I was able to figure out the structure of the material of the exam, and how to study for it, I got a 97% on the exam. And I am NOT one of those that can just read material once and remember it really well off by heart! It is those same techniques, and other similar, that I can work with anyone who is interested.
Although I was formally trained in architecture, life took me on many other paths - graphic design, marketing, business (I owned my own food retail delivery business for 4 years) - I wore many different hats that had nothing to do with school. So naturally much of it was self-taught, and so since I need to do all this in order to make money, I always had to figure out how to shorten the learning curve. This challenged me to how I thought and learned. And it is from that which I can give you the benefit of my knowledge.
