    Is this sentence gramatically correct?

    "Thanks again for being a great lecturer to us."
    I am always confused about the usage of to and for in this sense; should it be "...a great lecturer to us." or "...a great lecturer for us."? Thanks in advance.

    It should be to
    compare:
    He is too great a lecturer for us not to remember him
