Guidelines for advisees I believe that teaching must be based on the needs and potentials of the student, rather than the needs of a professor, a university, a society or a nation. I would like to recommend that the student explore and pursue any area which interests him or her most and express his or her own views without fear of any kind of restraints. It is the role of the professor to help the student achieve this endeavor.
