Yes, though not so many focusing on the relationship between teacher and student and how to relate to your teacher what is the best way for you to learn. Not to offend anybody, but even I sometimes get stuck on what direction I want my students to take instead of what direction they want to go in. I have put alot of thought into this upon realizing my own faults in teaching people and I have found that by discussing with them and letting them know that I will try to teach them according to their own particular style I have learn as much from them as I have taught them if not more. I simply wish to share what I have found and perhaps discover new and better ways to teach people. In my opinion there cannot be enough manuals out there becuase everybody learns differently and if we keep to the idea that someone else has already done this we limit ourselves and deny ourselves the wonders of discovery. I intend this not to be a finite definition but an alternative to the normal style so that we can all progress beyond what we already know.
