Yep, him too.

I agree completely. But the crutch is a great confidence builder for students who aren't so sure of themselves.

Lockheed pays me a straight salary, yet bills out my time by the hour. Thus profits are made.

Actually, that's where I really started my teaching career. They made me an engineering instructor, and turnover in aerospace being what it is, within two years I was their senior enginering Instructor (whereupon I left).
