The best teacher is the one who can teach you how to create your own music with your instrument and not just memorize how to play certain songs. Music theory not only shows you how to create your own music but it will also help you learn how to play any song more easily. You won't have to memorize where to put your fingers and how to strum anymore; you will understand how the song was written and it'll just make sense.
