14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I think she needs to speak slowly sometimes.

She notices when you dont come to class and when your homework is late and will aproach you outside of class or email you to check in.
I like how our instructor helps us with some of the exercises in class so we are able to do them on our own at home because they will be the problems that are given to us for homework but with different numbers.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Ms. Lee always presents clearly and she is master in this field.
She is very knowledgeable about accounting. Her past experience of being a CPA and working for the tax department has made her lectures interesting. She is very kind and encouraging.
she is very knowledgeable in her subject. She really cares about how her students are doing.
she knows her subject well and is well organized in class
She is very helpful and wants her student to do well
Very accessible when help is needed and information given was understandable.
She is upbeat and very kind. Warm and caring and she really know the in and outs of acct.
She knows here lessons well and give tips
The notes provided on Laulima were very detailed and helpful.
She is very helpful inside or outside the class room.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None
since accounting 202 is still an introductory course, maybe making some flashcards showing the new accounts we will encounter in 202 and include whether the account has a credit or debit balance, or if it is a contra-revenue account, etc. i think it will help some students in remembering their debit/credit rules as well.
-- snipped --
It's very difficult to meet people in a class where everyone is sitting in front of a computer. I think it would've been helpful if Professor Lee gave us 5 minutes during class to form the groups for the group project and to exchange phone numbers or emails. For example, Professor Dooley was constantly having us move around the class to form groups for the longer (in-class) assignments and he always took a few minutes to let us exchange phone numbers or emails.
Nothing. She is great.

Either by email or in person.
By helping every student individually if they had a poor test grade
If there was any part of the course students were struggling on she would take more time to explain thoroughly.
yes always check how we are doing.

She concerns about student's situation, tried to adjust the schedule, was very helpful.

17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I would like to say that if it wasn't for Susan I don't think I would have passed accounting. She pushed me to study harder and believed that I can do it.
She is a good teacher who makes it clear what you need to know
The project was no fun.
Professor Lee gives great insight to the everyday tasks of a CPA Auditor.
She is very knowledgeable about what she is teaching.

Professor Lee is very friendly and approachable, this makes it much easier to express confusion and ask for help.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
N/A since it's her first time teaching.
- Knowledge and experience in the field of accounting and taxation and ability to bring her experiences on the field into the classroom and relay them to her students. - Always returned examinations promptly with detailed corrections of errors. - Good communicator and made learning taxation fun!
-- snipped --
Know her subject matter, her experiences and her ability to connect the subject matter to real life in order for us to understand
I think this is her first semester teaching this class and I think she will be an excellent teacher on all levels once she settles in. She clearly knows the subject and is evolving in her format of the class though a little late for some who dropped the class. I am taking another class from her next semester and looking forward to it.
She is CPA, so She has a lot of knowledge about Tax regulation.
Her past experienced
She used to work in accounting firms for a long time, so she knows well about practical application.
Knows a lot of practical information as to how the course material applies to real life situations.

14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Give less homework and teach students to understand the concepts.
-Assign chapter homework earlier, so that students have more time to complete it. -Post answers to homework assignments earlier, so students can review them earlier for examinations.
-- snipped --
Use a better text book and computer program. Need a TA. Give test on every two chapters Multiple choice questions should not consist of calculations because there are enough tax problems that need calculations ProSystems Tax program should have been introduced and use from the onset of the class
I think she is adjusting the format of the class in the right direction.
Please more early update the assignment information.
