"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out — because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out — because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out — because I was not a Jew.
And then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me. – Martin Niemöller
„Eloször a szocialistákért jöttek, és nem emeltem fel értük a szavamat – mert nem voltam szocialista.
Aztán a szakszervezetek tagjaiért jöttek, és nem emeltem fel értük a szavamat – mert nem voltam szakszervezeti tag.
Aztán a zsidókért jöttek, és nem emeltem fel értük a szavamat – mert nem voltam zsidó.
Aztán értem jöttek, és már nem volt, aki felemelje a szavát - értem.” – Martin Niemöller
Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich nicht protestiert; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
Als sie die Juden holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Jude.
Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte. – Martin Niemöller **
To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will. - Ronald Reagan
My scheduled classes are hosted by the Google Calendar. The Google Calendar is a great tool for me to be able to post my schedule so students can get a better picture of who, what and when I teach. With it, I can easily make changes in scheduling nearly as quickly as they occur.
When you need me to adjust your schedule, just call in or send a message via SMS, email or SKYPE. If you have the opportunity to come in or hold a lesson via SKYPE, and the time does not appear to be clear, wait as little as within a couple of hours from the time you need, to see whether that time-slot has a change in status; I mention this because sometimes students ask about a time and I say it's not open, but then somewhere down the line, it opens. At that point, I often become pro-active, but by telling you this, it gives you the chance to become pro-active also.
Here you will see:
The student’s family name and the first name initial followed by a student code, which I use for privacy purposes, then a three digit number, which is my assessment of the student’s level. The student’s level is on a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being the best.
The time and date.
A map, which will give you a perfect picture of either my office or another location where I am teaching. I am usually in the office, but not always; since lessons are held on a first come, first serve bases, I may teach at another location, though that likelihood is becoming more rare.
If you catch me in your vicinity, one possibility is to hold lessons in your own homey part of town - if my other private student drops out, I'll probably remain committed to going to your more convenient spot.
Last, but not least, the interests and studies of the student.
