Halacha - class for women
Submitted by dovid  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Both cases are technically permitted, but one should take great care to preserve a proper attitude of distance from the attendees of the shiur. The Gemorra says that a single man should not teach young children out of concern that he may become familiar with the mothers when the drop off and pick up their children. I have also heard that Gedolim recommend men under the age of 35 should not teach teenage girls. Taking these examples of guidelines, one must make a judgment of whether the situation is in his best interest in consultation with a Rav who knows him personally.
