  Teaching is the process of attending to people’s needs, experiences and feelings, and intervening so that they learn particular things, and go beyond the given.

Writing skills are the skills we use to write effectively and succinctly. A good writer is someone who can communicate their point to their audience without using too much fluff and in a way that the other person can understand. 
This is about teaching and writing respectively.  Then How to Approach Writing Like Teaching ?

Good, emphatic writing strives to explain, to make things a little bit clearer, to make sense of our world - even if it's just a straightforward product description.

   "A writer always  tries to be part of the solution, to understand a little about life and to pass this on," says the writer Anne Lamott.

It's easy to embrace the teaching mind set when you are writing a how -to or other bit of instruction. But the notion is broader than that: Strive to explain your point of view to your reader with supporting evidence and context confirms an expert instructor.

Don't just tell your readers that you feel something; tell them WHY you feel it. Don't just say WHAT works; tell them WHY it works and What led you to this moment. Be specific as possible.

I think its always better to remember the words of Rudyard Kipling

“I keep six honest serving men
(They taught me all I know)
Their names are What and why
And When
And How and Where and Who”
