Teaching deen to the opposite gender

Q: I learnt in Islam that it is very bad to reveal one's personal secrets to others, but is there any danger in teaching my Muslim brother something new I learnt about Deen like how to perform ghusl? 

A: Males should teach males and females should teach females. When teaching them, one does not have to expose any part of one's body. Rather, one should explain to them the sunnah method of ghusl and teach them the general masaail related to it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
