Teaching Feedback

I’m interested in what my students think. I want to know what they think and how they feel about my courses and teaching style. My style is often considered unorthodox, but my students respond well to it. Of course, like every teacher, I do have the odd student who doesn’t appreciate my courses or teaching style. I do my best to accommodate those students; however, these students are atypical. Overall, my students appreciate my candid and fun teaching style, and as such, they become more invested in their learning.

You’ll find students’ comments below. These comments are all anonymous and, when needed, used with permission.
