Whenever we train, no matter who is teaching, that person is called "Sensei". This ends as soon as we are off the mat.

One thing I notice is that when the teaching individual is referred to by his/her first name, there is a lot more chatter and "helpful assistance" by others on the mat. I think the label sets the tone for a learning experience rather than a social time.
