"...Logically it seems to me to be the best form of teaching - individual attention and focus. In practice I've found this to be true if both teacher and student are committed to the task at hand while remaining relaxed and patient. I like it when the student tells me what they know. I don't mind a student interrupting me if they understand the matter at hand - there's little use in me explaining what they know, and if there is another purpose, I'll simply say so..."
