    Re: by no means

    I am by no means an expert
    I am not an expert by any means

    They both mean I am not an expert at all


    Not a teacher at all.

    Re: by no means

    As I am not by no means an expert
    Not a teacher.

    That's a double negative. "I am by no means an expert" is correct.
