No, not ok.

This example is very easy for me to reject, because it has a type 5 suffix
in a place that is not permitted.  The general case is a little less
clear-cut, but I still don't know why {qaghojmoHghach} should mean "my
teaching you" instead of "your being caused to learn by me" or "the process
of you being taught by me" or even something else which I don't know.
