13. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she comes around and makes sure that all students understand what they are supposed to be doing.
She always made sure we were doing things correctly so that we dont make bad habits
If you ask for help, she will help you.
Miss Stella is so passionate on what she does and it shows in her teaching
She would stay after school with students that needed help and would sit there for hours trying to help the students understand the material better
she was very willing to help us with any questions or problems that we might be having. multiple times she would stop what she was doing and talk to me about how to do something better. It helped me so much!
She would individually assist when asked for further help and understanding of a technique
She throughly explained everything that was taught through out the semester. I truly admire Ms. Stella. I look forward to learning more from her next semester.
She is attentive to her students and makes sure everyone is understanding the procedures.
Ms. Akamine is very knowledgeable with her subjects, but with the amount of time given to learn the subjects is not reasonable, and feels very crammed together, so it is hard for students to grasp the concepts of material. It also is concerning that Ms. Kaneho as well as Ms. Akamine has been makes announcements about classmates in class when disagreements involves only two students, and makes the class feel out of place, and uncomfortable to say at lease.
She would always make sure everyone knew what they were doing and if they did not she would take the time out to individually help them. Also would tell us little tricks and tips that has helped her throughout her career.
Absolutely, she is a caring person who tells it how it is. She isn't afraid to point out how we can improve. If you are acting like a little child or just making excuses she will tell you to stop.

15. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
She was very detailed about what she was telling us
she corrected you immediatly when procedure was one wrong
I liked her speech that she gave us after our facial practical.
I love it she goes out of her way to teach student who are struggling. give us some more teacher like her please
She was always happy but she knew when to put her foot down and get the girls in class in line. she was always making sure we did things the way we were suppose to do and she was always glade to help us when ever we needed it
I do not like that each time things seems to be different from the previous exercise and says well i told you just weren't listening. There were time when somethings were not even presented and we were expected to know what we were doing.
i loved how hands on she was, very willing to show you how something was done and it always made so much sense when she explained it.
I love how she is very hands on and will explain in detail how to perform services to our best ability.
I like how clearly she explains things and that if you are doing something wrong she is very firm about correcting us.
I love her knowledge, I dislike that material in class is out-dated and also underfunded so we must improvise products. I dislike the amount of time used to understand the subject, the fact that Ms. Akamine only teaches once a week so she is not available for additional help, and also I feel very uncomfortable with Ms.Akamine and Ms Kaneho announcing disputes involving two students to the entire class. I feel that this is unprofessional, and degrading to the parties involved, I also feel that this cluster the entire class into the matter when no one else is involved.
I really like the way she would teach on step and then have us do it then do the next step and sometimes have us do it at the same time so we can copy and learn better that way. I also like that she always wrote on the board the day before what we were doing so that as soon as we got to class we knew what we were doing and was set up and did not waste any time at all. She always had all the supplies she needed and had them ready for us to grab also.
She tells you how to improve and different ways to help us.

17. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
nothing
she was funny and kept my attention
Enjoyed it very much and learned a lot that I will need to use later on in life. Very helpful tips for sucess!
she cares about her students and willing to miss her family time to ensure students are not struggling
I wish we had her more then one day out of the week
I feel that there was not enough practice time in the course. We practice things once and then are expected not know every detail later there needs to be more time or an added sememster for the freshman courses.
She is extremely caring about what we learn so that in turn we can service our clients better
Explaining is done, but when it comes to the testing, and additional help itself it is unclear, and needs improvement
I think it would be better if the teachers don't announce or talk to the whole class about certain situations that involve only a few students because there were instances when not the entire class knew what was going on and it was quite embarrassing and shameful for some of the students affected especially when not everyone knew the whole story. It would be better for the teacher to just talk to the students affected or directly involved, because it doesn't need to be announced to the entire class.
She is so passionate about what she does and it shows majorly.
She is an amazing teacher who doesnt take any bullcrap from students who like to complain and bitch.

20. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes because she explains the subject matter so well
yes
Yes, because she helps you to strive and is very knowledgeable about the subject so she is able to help you and give you advice and tips.
yes she is a great teacher and very informative of the what we are doing and how to do it. She also tries to help us have better knowledge on how to do procedures and she encourages us to better ourselves
for somethings yes but not everything, i feel like we are rushed and there is not enough time
Yes
Yes.
She was a nice teacher but the amt of time given to learn the materials is not appropriate.
I would definitely recommend her because she loves to just share all the knowledge that she has to everyone and anyone. She is so patient and helpful.
Absolutely!!!! she is hilarious!

Class goes by so fast with her because she makes it so fun and we are constantly moving and learning new things. Also she does not only teach us but learns from us and that is what i feel makes a great teacher even more fantastic.
