Yes, That would be the Right Hand Rule.
I was simply following my teacher's instructions when I wound more than one layer. The whole time, I was doubting that it was a good idea, but I didn't say anything because he's my teacher. Next time, I'll speak my mind.

I'm familiar with the empirical approach to science and use it myself from
time to time. My question is one however that I think can be easily answered by
anyone who understands electrical theory. I'm a pre-beginner when it comes
to this stuff.

When I was your age or a bit younger, I read a book on electricity and
remember seeing a hand (a right hand) made into a fist with the thumb pointing
straight out. If I remember correctly, the thumb showed the direction of current
flow and the curvature of the fingers showed the direction of induction...I
think...it's been more than half a century since I read it.

It came to mind when a couple men asked you if you had more than one layer or
if you wound the layers in the same direction.  That's why I asked the first
question about the current flowing two different directions around the coil.

I think that Malcolm not only answered the question for me, but his
suggestion to you about reading a book on electrical theory is one I certainly need to
do also.

Good luck in your project and your career.
