13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
I can say without reservation that I have never had such a dedicated professor as Ou Laoshi. The abundant corrections and help I received with pronunciation--of utmost importance in a tonal language like Chinese--were especially welcome.
Maria Au Hoy is a fantastic professor!!! She challenges her students to think for themselves and to take an active role in the learning process. She offers both an immense body of knowledge and important experiential wisdom to her students.
She is very compassionate. She really cares about her students, not only that they are able to gain knowledge from this experience but also to grow as a person. She is so very good at pushing students to their limits and then allowing time to simmer. She has great teaching methods that have provided this class with the ability to learn a difficult subject in a short amount of time.
She is very good with the vocab and grammar, and perfect with the tones.
She always make the class interesting. She doesn't only focus on the content class but also she makes as apply the lessons that we learned in real life. She a teacher that encourage every student to have faith to themselves and lastly she knows how to make the lesson understandable to the
Maria Au Hoy is an asset to KCC. She teaches students things way beyond the classroom. Besides passionately helping our class to learn to speak Chinese, she promoted personal growth and confidence.
She is one of the most vibrant and enthusiastic teachers Ive ever had. This in turn makes me a more enthusiastic learner. She motivated me to always do my best. She knew our limits as a class while still pushing us beyond.
Her dedication to the class is amazing. She is always willing to help her students whether in class or off campus. She shows true dedication to her craft and to her students that is rarely seen by teachers. She has an energy that becomes contagious and keeps every student interested and engaged.
She is an awesome teacher. She teaches the subject well, and also teaches life lessons that I really enjoy.
she teaches the tones and pronunciation very well.she always has time for students questions.
She truly cares about the students. Her knowledge and perspective of learning the Chinese language are very relevant for the college level learner.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No need change.
No Changes needed.
None, because every strategy and teaching style that teacher Au use are very appropriate to make our learning successful
None, dont ever retire! She can never be replaced!
Change nothing!
None
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She actually set up a meeting outside of the scheduled class to provide us with extra support and often if not usually stayed after class.
On multiple occasions she met with her students, including me, outside of the classroom to assist them with the astonishing pace of CHNS 297.
She was very aware of any frustration students were having and encouraged students to talk about it, find ways to manage stress, etc.
She was very picky about tones, which makes our class work harder on our speaking. She was available almost 24/7 to help our class with any problem/questions we had.
She is accessible whenever we need her help. Even outside the class she is willing to help us. Every time we need her help she is always there and willing extending her help to us.She encourage and listen to every students needs.
Maria was available in and out of the classroom. Her dedication to the Chinese language and teaching go way beyond the content of the curriculum. She exhausted her own energy and resources to reinforce our learning.
She would always extend herself on her free time to give us help when we needed it. She would also relieve tension that builds in the class.
She met with us off campus to make sure we really understood the lesson. She also met with each of us individually and went over any mistakes we may have made on homework to make sure we knew what the mistake was, why it's wrong, and how to fix it.
yes everyday in class she would strive to push students to pass the course. i have never seen her let up in class even for a moment. her determination and motivation kept me going through the hardest portions of the class.
Ou Laoshi made trips to our dorm after hours to teach us outside of class. Her devotion and extra efforts make students want to elevate their efforts in learning chinese.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?

Yes. I couldn't recommend learning Chinese any other way than from a highly educated, dedicated, spunky Chinese woman!
YES YES YES YES! Of course, she is one of the best teachers I've ever had. I would of never thought I would be able to accomplish half the things that I have in this class, and I probably wouldn't have been able to if it wasn't for such a wonderful mentor and teacher.

Teacher Au is a very good teacher and she know the lesson so well. She is a very interesting and wonderful teacher. She motivates every students so well.
Being taught by Maria was a pleasant experience. For the first time in college i dreaded the last day of instruction in thought that she would no longer be my Chinese teacher. She made learning a new language less stressful and confusing, making it more fun and exciting. Thank you Maria!!
She is a beautiful person and I love her life lessons that are always mixed into the classes. They are wonderful.
