Yes, if you want to learn how to do something, ask your teacher. Simple. If you have a decent teacher they should have no problem helping you out.

Also you can learn songs on your own. Scales in my opinion, is something that helps to have a little guidance on.

If you can learn songs on your own then do that and learn theory with your teacher, that's what I do, but if you need your teachers help keep learning songs with him. Remember, too, that the more theory you learn the easier it will be to learn songs.
