    What is exactly the difference between these three words? I'm writing my resume in English, and I'm not sure when I can use each of them.

    I know a professor is a person that teaches at the University level, but can you say "Teacher of Spanish Culture" or "Instructor of Spanish Culture" to refer to a professor of Spanish culture?

    In other words, are "teacher" and "instructor" more general than "professor", or do they refer to a different category (ie, primary & secondary school)?

    Thank you
