If you only want to teach pupils that are like you, you don't need to go into teaching, unless you become a private tutor.
Yea, but a math teacher is only teaching one thing: Math.
Kakashi is teaching much more than ONLY ninjutsu-- or ONLY the basics. If a tutor is to teach a group of students and one student has amazing potential with math but one has potential with grammar and comprehension-- Do you teach advanced math skills to the child with good grammar skills? Fuck no.
Naruto fails when it comes to Kakashi's ninjutsu. He had to go learn jutsu from someone else. Just face facts and deal with it.
It's not like all this bickering is going to make Kakashi any less of what you might think is an "asshole". =/
/edit; besides that, I think Jiraiya > Kakashi
Maybe I should say that Jiraiya is an asshole for not teaching Sasuke lawl
