Teacher with his student always in mind.
He made class fun and interesting. He was very understanding and tried to cater to each students needs. He was very flexible and wanted all of us to do well in the class. :)
He really cares about the students and I loved how he was very understanding of our situation as students, trying to deal with classes, stress and work. He was always available to answer any questions and tried to make things in class convenient for us, made sure we will succeed. I enjoyed his class!
One of the best professors Iâ??ve ever had at Manoa. Professor Youn genuinely cares about his students and wants every one to succeed. He also tries his best to help everyone attain that success. Professor Youn tries to accommodate every studentâ??s needs by willingly giving his best effort to anyone that needs aid. Professor Youn is interactive; he is very friendly and easy to engage in a conversation with. Professor Younâ??s lectures are always interesting and engaging, making every single class worth attending. He promotes the whole class to participate and discuss their opinions and perspectives on various topics. Professor Younâ??s teaching style is simple yet informative, lecture slides are not complicating and easy to understand. Throughout this semester I can honestly say I was able to develop a strong relationship with Professor Youn, one that I plan to keep dearly.
I really enjoyed this course!!! Mr. Youn was a great teacher because he shared real life experiences from the field and he was easy to relate to!
I actually learned a lot and had a lot of fun in this class. I am a marketing major, so I may be a bit biased, but I found the things we learned in this class more useful than other concepts in other classes when it comes to real life goals. The assignments weren't too bad but still made you think and learn the material.
Thank you for helping us alot.
I think James Youn lacked real world experience in Marketing to provide his students enough background and supporting examples for many topics covered in the course. Also, Prof. Youn was inconsistent with his exams.
Professor Youn really takes into consideration of what we have to say and is a great educator. I am really fortunate to have him as my teacher this semester.
great course i would enjoy taking another marketing class with this professor.
James is a GREAT instructor. He's funny, relatable, and communicates well. He really knows his material, and does a great job of tying in real world (and personal) experience. More importantly, he facilitates a calm, nurturing classroom where we as students have been able to not only open up to him, but to each other as well. It's clear that he genuinely cares for his students. I would take any other class he taught, and would recommend him in a heartbeat.
Very helpful teacher and cared a lot about the students. Demonstrated good knowledge of the material and explained well.
james was awesome
I thoroughly enjoyed this class from the course material to the examples and jokes! Great teacher and have learned and retained a lot of information from this class. Very open to what his students have to say and is a great example of what a business college teacher should be like.
Professor Youn engaged the class better than any other professors I had this semester. I enjoyed his lectures because he constantly asked questions to students and wanted to talk about "real world" encounters in the field. He encouraged students to look at marketing as a whole and talk more about business in this class than my other business classes.
He is a great professor. He is very understanding and will help you get that A if you work hard and do all the reading and class assignments. He is very enthusiastic professor and makes his lectures interesting and straight to the point. I had a great time being in his class.
James is very considerate of his students. He does his best to help students get a good grade by adjusting his grading policy and by providing extra credit.
