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。

Fixing bad links in my novel

In my first novel, which I am in the process of writing: http://joel-rees-economics.blogspot.com/2016/04/economics-101-novel-index.html, I had bad links in chapters
  1. http://free-is-not-free.blogspot.com/2016/05/economics-101-novel-ch01-introducing.html,
  2. http://free-is-not-free.blogspot.com/2016/05/economics-101-novel-ch02-introducing.html, and
  3. http://free-is-not-free.blogspot.com/2016/05/economics-101-novel-ch03-introducing.html
The links had skipped ahead to chapter 11, so if you are reading it, you may have missed chapter 10: http://free-is-not-free.blogspot.jp/2016/03/economics-101-novel-ch10-bobbie-and.html. And things might have made even less sense.

(I'm still working on the characterizations in chapters 04 to 09.)

The novel is about two good Mormons who get left on a desert island alone. (I know, I know. What do they say, Fools jump in where angels fear to tread? I'm a fool.)

My intent was to show the economic interactions in a very simplified system, something like timing feathers and cannonballs dropped in a vacuum chamber.

Hey, isn't simplification one of the first steps in solving hard problems?

:-p
