Jamaican Jerk Chicken Night

Posted on 30. Jun, 2012 by in Classes

One of the things I love about co working is attending events hosted by the space especially the ones that are totally different from my job as a software developer because they are a good opportunity to try out something new. As someone who loves food and cooks every Sunday, I am always on the lookout for recipes I can try out myself and so last Thursday, I attended the Jamaican Jerk cooking class here at Citizen Space.

What is Jamaican Jerk? From Wikipedia:

Jerk is a style of cooking native to Jamaica in which meat is dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a very hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice. Jerk seasoning is traditionally applied to pork and chicken.

It was my first cooking class and so I was very excited. I got to sit down next to Chef O’Brian Matterson during dinner where I got to learn a little more about him. Chef O’Brian learned to cook from his uncle and I learned that he serves the cafeterias of Foursquare, Yelp and Apple.

For the most part Chef O’Brien demonstrated the rudiments of creating Jamaican Jerk Chicken from preparing the ingredients, to marinading up to grilling. Now this may not be different from watching a youtube video but then I liked the fact that you were able to ask him questions like the proportions of the ingredients, to substitute ingredients or tips on grilling. Most of all, however, the smell of the chicken as it was being grilled was very tempting and it made us all hungry. Towards the end, we all got to try Jamaican Jerk chicken which was served with rice cooked in a broth of bean and coconut milk. Really delicious!

Become Master Teacher on Skillshare!

Posted on 05. Mar, 2012 by in blog, Classes, Coworking, Events, Internships, Japan, Jobs, SOMA, Startups

 

Skillshare, a marketplace of classes to learn anything from teachers in your community, is now looking for Teacher & Account Executive in San Francisco.

 

 

Since I was interested in becoming teacher myself, I decided to have an interview with Stevie who is the community manager of Skillshare. I’d like to share some of the tips she gave me to become master teacher in Skillshare.

Gaining a trust from students

In order to attract students in Skillshare, teacher has to have credibility. How can I earn that trust? Stevie told me that teaching is the only way to construct the good relationship between your students. Get endorsement from people who liked the class and be open to critical feedbacks to improve yourself to become Master Teacher.

 

However it is sometimes hard to take the first step. For those shy teachers Skillshare organizes class on designing the classes which staff of Skillshare will kindly walk you through picking a class topic, designing your first class, and all the other steps you need.

Building course for your class and create community

Another important concept of Skillshare is “course”. Many other P2P teaching platform just offers intermittent contents but Skillshare encourage teachers to create course with different level of difficulty so that students can improve their skill with continuous support from same teacher.

 

Becoming Master Teacher

 

You can also earn the trust by becoming Master Teacher.

Here are some of the criterias you have to overcome.

- Should apply or be nominated by the Skillshare team
- Have taught several amazing classes with EVEN MORE lined up
- Have lots of loving feedback from students
- Have a detailed & personalized profile that links to Twitter, Facebook, and beyond
- Are capable of receiving 15+ endorsements per quarter

Stevie emphasize the importance of endorsement because after all, it’s the student who decides the best teacher in the campus!

 

Skillshare’s mission is to transform education by empowering teaching and democratizing learning. Every human being is natural teacher!  Transform every place to school! (They even once had class in subway, teaching “how to talk to stranger). I’m sure the future of Skillshare will replace the traditional education system with high tuition.

 

You want to help accomplish this mission? Skillshare is looking for Account Executive who could help recruit great teachers. For more information, click here for more information about this role.
