News & Opinion: Learning to teach
There are two solutions that will ensure you reach apprentices with differing styles. One solution is to hand this chapter to your apprentice and have a frank discussion about what works and what doesnt for him. It wont take long, and youre bound to learn something from each other. At the very least, youll give your apprentice language that he can use to speak up and give you feedback. The last thing you want is to have him be a victim of your approach to teaching.
