13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Instructor Egami is knowledgable in what he practices and teaches. He also has a sense of humor that students can relate with.
He's very good at pinpointing what each student needs to work on as a chef and helps hone our skills so that we will thrive in the culinary world.
His experience and knowledge as a chef,
He knows the subject area well and beyond so that it was easy for us to learn easily since he brought in real life examples into his demos. He also is patience and understanding so it was easy to go to him for questions or if you needed help with anything.
Chef has patient to teach student if students can't understand.
Chef Mattâ??s major strength is knowing the subject well and being able to present the material in a way that is both interesting and easy for us to understand. He also makes the class fun while still being challenging.
As a teacher, he know his subject area and example very clearly.
You can tell that he really cares about each and every one of his students. He is very approachable with any questions that you may have. His criticism is very constructive and helpful without making you feel stupid or inept.
Experience. It was clear that he knew what he was talking about. He can explain the procedures both from an expert's and a novice's point of view.
He is what this culinary program needed. He creates an environment conducive to learning filled with positive energy where students know that we all have an equal chance to succeed. Instead of unnecessary stress and fear that are conducive to accidents or to dropping the class, he bring to the lab an energy that is positive and encouraging creating in this way a fertile soil for skills and passion for cooking to grow and flourish. His strengths are: He knows his subject, he gives all students a fair chance to succeed and has a great positive energy emerging from him that permeates the lab and classroom at all times and this is the perfect environment for learning.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I hope you could be less abrasive when giving feedback to the students after each task.
None, this semester went by very smoothly. I loved the flow of the class. He gave us enough cooking time to complete everything realistically if you were on task and not falling behind. I also like getting out of class early.
Maybe more emphasis could be placed on rewarding good teamwork and having poor teamwork reflected in daily scores.
He does not need to change much~
The class is excellent. But, if I did have to make a criticism it would be to be more present during cleaning. THere are some students in the class that have never pulled their own weight during the cleaning portion of the class, leaving more work for others. While I realize that this is an issue that we would encounter in the real world, it is still frustrating to deal with in a classroom setting where life tends to be a bit more fair.
Please do not change, regardless of UH system presures,( that I know are many and varied) or as you naturally will age over the years, please, please, the only change I suggest for you, is that you do not change as a Chef Instructor.. A whole generation of future chefs need you badly as you are. You are the only one there for them. Do not abandone them.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He makes sure to touch bases with the students on their goals for taking this class.
Well, he would go to them and talk to us about what we are struggling with and would try to make us understand what we did wrong and what we need to do to get better.
Chef Matt was always there when someone got injured or a flame erupted on someoneâ??s burner. He was also readily available to answer questions about tests, assignments, grades, or really any aspect of our class.
He was very open to any questions, no question was ever a considered a waste of time. He always made sure to answer all of them, no matter how many there might be. That just shows how much he wants us to learn. That attitude towards students is what makes me want to learn more.
He constantly checked on us while we were cooking and always asked if we had any questions or concerns before letting us go. Also, he provided review sessions after class, which is a rare sacrifice on the teacher's part.
He showed concerns for students by knowing exactly who and when needed correction and support, in particular when safety was at stake. He was always there for us if a cut occurred showing concern and helping with first aid or if a fire was growing and we were afraid of he was there to calm down fears and instructs us about how to deal with it and how to decrease fear. He also thought of making a list of items inside of each cabin and posting outside of the cabinet so students did not have to waste precious time looking for stuff and opening 8 cabinet door before finding it. I thought last year about this and wondered why no chef have thought about the same. He did. After how many chefs and how many years? He did.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
I would recommend Egami to other students, especially to people without any industry experience because the pace at which the class is taught is fairly easy to manage. You definitely learn a lot from this class.
Yes I would because he's reasonable teacher who wants his students to
Yes!; He is an awesome chef. He is easy-going, understanding, very approachable, and he truly cares about how you are doing in class to make sure that you take away the information and cooking techniques from his demos/lessons. I'm glad that I chose to take his class.
I would absolutely recommend Chef Matt. He is an excellent instructor and he knows his stuff. He makes the class challenging but is constantly providing feedback so that we learn from any mistakes.
Yes, I would recommend Chef Egami to other students
Yes, I would definitely recommend chef Matt to other students because he creates a very positive learning environment, which I feel is crucial for any student to want to learn.
Yes. Not only have I learned a lot, I have had the privilege to learn in a stress-free environment. While there were times where I felt the pressure of time, I have always felt comfortable in the fact that nothing that was asked of me was impossible. I have definitely gained a confidence in cooking that I never thought possible.
Yes. He is the only chef that gives us all a fair chance to succeed in this class. Why? because instead of jumping to faulty conclusions deciding to x or y student wont make it in his class and deciding to get rid of her or his by harassing behaviors as overwhelming the student with unnecessary stress and fears (conducive to accidents with knifes), overworking the student or by uncalled for screams, Chef Egami believes in us all equally, specially at the beginning of the semester and provides us all with an equal opportunity to succeed, then is up to the student to take that opportunity and prove herself or himself, and many of us did just that. Chef Egami by doing providing us wiht that equal opportunity, in turn, is saving many potential future good chefs.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Instructor Egami can be very sarcastic at times, but it's also a part of his humor. He can be very helpful and kind when needed. He's a straight-forward type of person who just tells it like it is, there's no gray area so you rarely get confused about anything. Egami actually cares about his students, because he takes the time to encourage them and give them the confidence they need to succeed.
He's a great person and teacher.
Chef Matt should consider teaching more courses! He is, admittedly, pretty awesome.
you are a awesome teacher and friend.
He's AWESOME.
That although he is young, he is also wiser than some older chef instructors. He knows how to work with all kind of people and adding that to all of the fore mentioned above, he is a great example to follow. I am already treasuring him as one of the best chef instructors I had during my culinary education. The one that saved my passion for cooking and perhaps my future as a chef. Thank you Chef.
18. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I'm not sure.
Maybe work on a different way to get on people's cases who don't listen or care about anything. Lecturing doesn't work since they don't care or listen in the first place. It was pretty annoying to see those people help out the least constantly and to make the most mistakes in class, which ultimately causes us to be lectured because they were the ones who weren't following or listening to directions.
The main course website is a little outdated and could use a little updating, and the test layouts on Laulima could be changed so that they are more user-friendly. Also, while I enjoyed most of our written assignments like our weekly reflections and even going through the New Kitchen Science book, I could absolutely do without the Coaching Culinary Champions assignments. I donâ??t think I learned anything from that book except for the importance of good editing.
no need~
Structure is clear, well defined, and cohesive. If I could change anything it would be to get rid of the Competition book and the writing assignments pertaining to it. I did not find the information important or relative to me or my experience. Kitchen Science, however, was extremely helpful and I will definitely keep that book long after this class ends.
