    Default help me and taught me with

    You have helped me and taught me a lot with my career.

    I think there is a grammar mistake in the use of "with".

    Could I correct it like this:

    You have helped me with my career and taught me a lot about it.

    ... except that the career is now the thing he's been taught about - which may bot be the case. What about 'You have taught me a lot, and so helped me advance my career'?
