My Best Teaching Is One-on-One

一対一が僕のベスト

Of course, I team teach and do special lessons, etc.

当然、先生方と共同レッスンも、特別レッスンの指導もします。

But my best work in the classroom is after the lesson is over --
going one-on-one,
helping individual students with their assignments.

しかし、僕の一番意味あると思っている仕事は、講義が終わってから、
一対一と
個人的にその課題の勉強を応援することです。

It's kind of like with computer programs, walking the client through hands-on.
The job isn't really done until the customer is using the program.

まあ、コンピュータプログラムにすると、得意先の方に出来上がった製品を体験させるようなことと思います。
役に立たない製品はまだ製品になっていないと同様です。

To the Girl on the Train

(One of those had-a-bad-day riffs, still not sure whether I should post it.)

You got legs.
Pretty legs.
And a skirt to show them off.

Well I can see you got legs.
It's not my business, how beautiful they are,
It's not something I wanted to know.

I got eyes.
Bad eyes.
They only see what's in front of them,
And that, none too well.

If I see your legs in that skirt you're wearing,
Is it my fault or yours?

I don't know.

Fashion, what you wreak in men!
What you wreak in women!

I was already distracted,
My thoughts gone far afield
To arcane mathematical hobbies,
And now I see your legs.

You got needs.
I can see your needs in the fashion you wear.

But I'm not one to see your legs
And I'm not one to know your needs.
Will you pardon me
If I turn my eyes away?

[Really hadn't wanted to channel ZZ Top today.]
