18. Other comments:
To Mr. Yoneshige's Superiors: Please hold on to Mr. Yoneshige. He defines a teacher and is a great man!
I believe the Accounting Student Night should be more than just a third of our grade. With the amount of time and effort that is needed to put into this event, there should be some type of incentive for all students to put their best efforts. Bare minimum efforts results in a bare minimum quality of the event.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
His class was very organized and he always cares about students.
kind, explain clearly until the students got it
Very familiar with the subject matter. We were able to ask questions outside the subject matter and he was right there with an answer.
Knows the subject area well.
He presented the material in a way that we could apply it to real life situations which in turn made it easier to understand.
His class is well structured and organized. He actually follows his schedule!
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing
Class is too short. I love the practical side of accounting. I learned alot and found accounting to be an interesting career for me. Because of him, im eager to start my career in accounting.
none
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
he's available on email and office hours, always helps students
Always answering questions outside of class hours.
Was always available for questions. Was always available.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, why not? He was nice kind don't mind help students
Highly recommend Mr. Yoneshige to other students. He creates an atmosphere in class that intrigues our interest in accounting. He is very knowledible on the subject matter and other areas not pertaining to the class. His class is structured, thus you know what needs to be done and when its due. His class gives you the prospective of actually working out there in the field. During my internship class, Mr. Yoneshiges class was highly helpful thus ive been hired as a part time accounting clerk.
yes, great teacher and knows his subject area.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
nothing
I only hoped he would have taught longer. Its not just the class material taught, but his way of teaching that got me wishing he taught other classes. He makes the class interesting by his real life experiences and his full understanding by teaching outside the textbook. I don't even think he looked at the text book for guidence the whole time. He knew his material very well. Possibly auditing. I love his class, but i felt it was too short
18. Other comments:
n/a
Being a local guy ( i believe i was) gave me that extra interest because of how he approached the subject matter. The class was very interesting and i learned alot in his class. Thanks to him, my internship was so much easier. Thank you again.

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
N/A
He went over quizzes and test after they were graded and went over areas that he felt needed more attention so the students would understand.
he doesn't leave the topic without the whole class understanding it. He also takes the blame of not teaching the particular topic very well whenever a lot of students got an item in the quiz/exam wrong.
answer questions until we all understand
He was always there to answer questions whenever we needed help. Went out of his way to help us.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. He waits until everyone in class understands a section/chapter then move onto the next chapter/section.
I recommend students to take his class because you will learn and see how accounting is applied manually.
Absolutely! You'll miss half of your Accounting life without taking this course under him.
Yes, I learned a lot from him
Yes, he's a great teacher and is willing to help you in anyway he can. He's not boring and keeps in engaged.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Very good instructor! Please hire him to teach the whole course during the semester.
I really enjoyed his class, I like the pace of how he teaches, and he is a very patient teacher.
If there are 5-stars hotels, KCC have a 5-star accounting instructor!
none
18. Other comments:
****This has nothing to do with the evaluation of Mr. Kerry Yoneshige.*** The course as a whole with four instructors involved is very disorganized. It doesn't transition smoothly (i.e. have smooth transitions.) We start off the semester with six weeks of the manual accounting cycle then jump right into Mr. Kobayashi's accounting research for the rest of the semester. Plus within the six weeks, the planning of Accounting Student Night starts from almost the first week of semester to end of October. Then having to deal with a very disorganized internal control project headed by Accounting Professor Dooley - getting piece by piece information (by either Mr. Dooley or another student) of more requirements that is not listed on the timeline completion schedule up until presentation week from Professor Dooley. After the internal control project, we have to do a True Blood case presentation. This course should have two instructors, not three or four instructors involved.
He should continue to teach this class or another accounting course. He's a really good teacher.
His class have a lot of assignments to be completed but believe me, those will help students to really understands the overall manual process of accounting.
none
This part of ACC 231B was wonderful. However, having technically 4 professors running this class was very stressful. You could never go to just one professor for a final answer. I really learned a lot from the SUA portion, but after that I feel like I haven't been able to retain everything else. The class went from one subject to a completely different one w/o an in-between. I felt like I was being pulled in 5 different directions. SUA, Accounting Student Night, Acccounting Research and Internal Control Project and a TrueBlood project. There were too many chiefs for this class. I have no idea why we can't evaluate Dooley since he was in-chare of the Internal Controls Project. Also it's a waste of the students time and money when we have to repeat the same activities again for Accounting Student Night and Internal Controls project for ACC 251B. This class is very disorganized! This should be fixed. ACC 231B should only have the SUA and TrueBlood. Accounting Student Night and the Internal Controls Project should be assigned only for ACC 251b. We shouldn't have to do the same projects twice for two different classes.
