Very good instruction
He knows the course well...
He has a good experience in his business history. so his teacging style is very hands on. Also,accounting knowledge and explanation were very nice.
He knows the concept of accounting. His teaching is clear and simple. He give us the appropriate amount of homework to help understand.

Mr. Young is funny, kind and giving.
Very knowledged in his subject.
Helping his students!
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I just wanted him to take more time on the chapters in the book, so that i could get a better grasp of what was going on, instead of trying to catch up.
None.
Make sure a section is covered in class before assigning homework for that section. While reading the materials prior to each in class section is suggested, the materials can be hard for some students to fully understand.
To have more time(s) on complicated chapters...1-2 days= 3hrs and 30 mins is not enough to cover such chapter like 1. Inventory 2. Basic Concepts of Accounting Information Systems 3. Accounting for Receivable, just to name a few...
There is no changes matter.
None so far.
-- snipped --
Nothing
Have Students read the chapter, then you lecture, then give out homework. Sometimes it's hard to understand the material without having someone explain to you how it works. I know we can email you If we need help but emailing you after so many questions is such a hassle. Also try not to keep students pass class time because some of us have back to back classes.
None

Maybe a few rules about class "etiquette" such as cellphones...

Thank you and keep up the great work!

Merry Christmas!
With the limited times to cover an whole text book, I don't really need to spend more time learning plant assets, natural resources, and intangible assets. its not happening in most everyday business operation.

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
1. respond email quickly and answer questions from students carefully 2. often repeat online class for those were absent 3. allow students retake the exam
for example: I failed the first exam. Steven asked me "what is your problem ."and concern about why I failed the exam. Also he offer help. If have any question have to ask him.
Steven Young gladly makes himself available outside of class, and he volunteers to give extra help to students in need. It's refresing and welcome. Many students certainly would have failed if he hadn't taken such an active interest in his students' success.
He will ask questions to students how come they werent in class.

certainly. He is very good and nice.
yes, it's my friend recommend him to me. I will recommend him too.

17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
From his class, we can learn something in business world besides textbook

Professor young is great teacher and I think you should know that just work on timing.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
He is very knowledgable. His lecture is well-organized and he explan matericals very clearly.
he is a good teacher because he is so helpful. even we didnt have class on friday we did turtoring for us. also he helped us throught the mail too.
nice, patient, and kind-hearted
Stayed on schedule.
His explanation was clear and easy to understand. He didn't waste any time for doing or chatting something unrelated to concepts of the course. He made time for us to answer questions from us and to improve effectiveness of contents on Power Point files that he made for every lecture so that we can see the concepts of each chapter clearly.
He knew all subject well and care about his student's understanding.
He was always willing to help students and tried hard to make students understand the materials.
He taking the time to let us understand the materials. I have a easier time to understand the concept. If I have any questions he will answer and explain clearly. He helped me learned a lot in this course.
Major strenghts: Besides book knowledge, Mr. Young has a lot of practical knowledge. He has traveled to many places around the world, worked at big corporations and gain much insight. The concepts in the book apparently is crystal clear to him. Although he hasn't taught many classes, the content and the timing of the lecture were very excellent.
He knows his material very well. He has many experiences and knowledges about the topic.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
When he assigned homeworks, we did not have much time until the submission day.
I hope he can make the class fun.
No changes
He is the best accounting professor that I've ever met! He doesn't need to change anything. Please, teach for a long time in KCC to improve the teaching quality of accounting course. KCC students needs you as a professor in every time. There are many students who failed and just give up majoring in account because they couldn't meet great professor like you. I feel sorry for them and sorry for my past. I am really hoping that I can learn from you again as much as many other ACC courses as well!
He is the best teacher I ever had before!!

None. His way of teaching was excellent. I wish I have him for all of my accounting classes!

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
His lecture is student-oriented and he did not move on the next topic until students understood what the material was about.
He helped students after class, respond to e-mail quickly, really concerned about students' feeling
Was willing to stay after class to help.
He notified us the due date of assignment, date of quizzes & exams frequently. And he assigned many in class problems and after class homework problems so that we can understand how to solve the problems and concepts of each chapter and get ready for quizzes and exams. We'd never wasted any time to chat about unrelated stuff with this course or to be successful with this course! I was really happy about that.
He cares about student. He always stay late for students who have questions. In class, he always asks: any questions? any? If you don't have any, we will move to next subject I think he is really care about us. and yet, he is always willing to help us.
If we have any questions he would answer until we understand the materials.
He made sure if everyone was up to par. The accelerated course is vigorous and is easy for students to fall behind. But, he gave us a lot of quizzes and a lot of hw assignments so that we can be on track. If it weren't for that, I would be really behind. As for the first exam, many students didn't do well and he gave them opportunity for the students to take a make up exam.

16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Certainly Yes. Since he used to work at the real world, he is very knowledgable especially in the accounting field. He is very good at explaining things and fair grader, too.
yes, because he is so helpful. im kind week of english but he tried to understand and he tried to teach using easy words instead of difficult accounting terms.
Yes. He is so good.
I would recommend him because he truly believes in the success of every student in class.
Of course I will recommend him. You will see the reason after taking several more classes from KCC and also hearing what people saying about the courses and teaching quality of professors.. Professor Young is diligent and concerns about students' learning progress seriously. If you did hardwork, you will be successful by now. If you didn't get the result that you wanted, maybe you should have ask questions more when you stuck on something he was right there for you to help you..
Yes, I will recommend Mr. Young to every students who need to take ACC 201 and 202.
Yes he was a lot better than my 201 teacher. Exams were a lot harder that you gotta not only know how to journalize and get right numbers and stuff, but also have to have a thorough understanding of the textbook contents. (for a lot of mutiple choice questions) I never did that in my previous class but was still good enough to score fine on the exams. So i feel like i learned a lot more and was able to get better understanding of what accounting is about, not just technically memorize how to journalize without real understanding what this is about.
Yes, because he can help students to learn.
Mr. Young is a nice, intelligent teacher. It's hard to find a teacher that possess these two qualities. He pretty much spent an extra hour or even two hours each day helping the students out. Out of all the classes I've taken, I feel that he is the best teacher. Yes, I recommend him to other students.

Thank you for teaching me so well! I really appreciate your great helps! Before I take this class from you, I thought that I can't even get a C or D grade from this course because everyone told me that taking this course is tough and after I take ACC 201, I started to give up my hope about meeting any great professor in accounting course.. But, now? I am studying for final exam to get an A grade from this course. Of course I did study a lot, but when I stuck on something, I knew that I can ask you and you will answer for me. That encouraged me a lot and your help improve my understanding. So, I think I can make this happen because of your help! Thank you so much!!
Take his class, you won't mistaking. He is a great teach! You will learn a lot from him not only from book but also the really business world matters!!!
I like that he gives us some class examples in class, so if we have any questions he can answer it.
Mr. Young has allowed us to gain access of pdf files, provided the answer key for exams and quizzes, etc. Because of what he did, he has made learning fun. The problems from Wiley Plus is a valuable tool and should be used! He has put many problems so that we'd be geared up for the exam. It's hard for the students to be motivated in the subject and it requires the teacher's effort to help the students do well. Although Mr. Young is inexperienced in teaching, it seemed like he has been teaching for decades.

Would you please to be a professor of ACC 134 in this fall(2011) semester? This course's professor name appears still TBA. It's about individual income tax. I am sure that you will teach great. The contents of ACC 134 is impossible to understand without the professor who is accessible, who has experiences, who concerns about students and makes sure that students to have the understanding of the concepts and prepares them for exams. Students who registered ACC 134 desperately need his teaching!
none
Mr. Young, I really appreciate the effort and time you put in teaching this class to us. This class is definitely accelerated and is very challenging to the students, but most importantly for you. A teacher makes a deep impact in the students' lives. I know from my other friends that they didn't pursue math or music because of their teacher in high school/college. I want to say that I will strive to become an accountant. I already have the foundations and it will be easier for me to grasp the concepts for later courses. It motivates me to do well. Thank you!

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Mr. Young was a really nice person. If you needed help, you could always ask him for help. He's very sensible. He knows what he's talking about. If you would need advice about ACC, you could always go to him. Very reliable.
Major strength is that he encouraged us and was knowledgable, I liked him alot but sometimes he would read off the powerpoints which wasnt very helpful but did encourage questions.
He has real life experience in accounting, which makes it easier to understand certain parts of the course.
His ability to take time and spend time with student after class session to explain any complicated problems.
His major strengths include always ready for class, knows the material very well, and is willing to help.
expertise, very knowledgeable, very experience in field, very helpful, fair, very accessible, communication
He gave the students who were not doing so well in the class numerous chances to improve their grades.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Some people like me learn by applying what's being taught to real life problems. He could possibly do more example problems during the lecture so we can get a hang on things.
I liked at the end when you gave us worksheets to do I think that helped alot to understand the powerpoints. More worksheets I liked writing out the problems. He also is a quite speaker sometimes he is hard to hear he needs to speak louder.
Spend more time on the first few chapters of the book they are the hardest and most critical to the course
none
Well, being it was Mr. S. Young's first semester/year to teach the subject, I feel he did a pretty fine and excellent job. If there is any changes to be made, I feel Mr. Young more or less would know what changes he see's fit to change. He asked me personally and I gave him some suggestions already.
I suggest he do a little bit more problem solving in class rather than all lecture.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He always willing to him. Before a test/quiz/exam he would tell the class to feel free to visit him or arrange a study session.
He really encouraged us to see him if we had problems and he would be in the computer lab before class and if you requested it in order to help you study.
He encouraged students to see him during his office hours and always was available to help students prepare for quizes and exams
quick reply on email, after class sessions.
He would scheduele tutoring sessions in between classes.
He was very, very helpful and always gave of his time before and after class by having study/tutoring sessions. He also communicated to us often and continually and always offered to help in any way he can to help us with the subject matter and homework, etc. He would ask questions to us on how we felt we were doing as far as understanding the subject matter and how we were doing on the homework, etc.
He made himself available to go over questions. He arranged get togethers for those that needed more help.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Sure. Mr. Young knows his stuff, he's a reasonable guy, and a decent teacher.
Yes, he is a good teacher and will only get better when he finds his niche.
Yes, as hard of a class as accounting is, he makes it easier to understand because he knows his subject and has real life experience to back it up.
Yes, He is a very knowledgable instructor.
Yes
Yes, because he is fair and understandable.
Yes, see above comment boxes.
Yes, he was a great teacher and very kind. He taught his class well and gave everyone a fair chance at passing the class.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I enjoyed the class even though I'm probably not getting an A. haha. :p.
GREAT TEACHER
I appricate all of his help when preparing for quizes/exams
Great job and keep it up.
Hes a great teacher.
I feel he is a great addition to the Business/Accounting Department. I took a chance on a new instructor and I'm glad I did. I am very grateful and fortunate. He brings a new light and perspective and new ideas to the subject and I feel within the department as a whole, too.
I wish he taught more Accounting classes on campus!
