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。

Novels I Am Writing (and related stuff)

Since I intend the novels I am writing to be found, I guess I should make a list of them (and try to keep it sort of up-to-date ;).

Please note: I claim copyright on all my work, even when I fail to put the copyright notice in the actual text. Posting my work on the Internet does not mean I want people to plagiarize it or republish it without my permission.

Novels I am currently sort-of-actively working on:

Short (and not-so-short) riffs that might someday become novels:

Oh, and this is not a novel, but it doesn't seem to be turning into a book on progamming in C, either.

[JMR201705151131: 
Here is a list of rants on the topic of information security that might make a half-decent (non-fiction) book.

If you like something I have written and want to work with me, contact me. We may be able to work something out.

You can find a short description of who I am and instructions for contacting me, here: https://sites.google.com/site/joelrees/. (Yeah, I depend too much on Google's freebies.)

If something I have written gives you some ideas, and you want to try writing something of your own based on those ideas, go for it! Dig into it. Use your own words, your own grammar, your own plot lines, etc. Think about how you would have written it, and then take the time to try writing it that way.

Have fun with it. The more fun you have with it, the less likely you will be to run afoul of the laws and people's opinions. And the more you will be able to defend yourself if someone does charge you with plagiarism or copyright infringement.

If you are tempted to just copy-paste, or even sed/awk massage something I wrote and claim it as your own, well, don't blame me if such things get you your just deserts.

This life is much more fun when you do your own work.
