13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Good lecture
Kyle is an excellent teacher. I was very intimidated by math before I took his class, shortly into the semester, I found myself enjoying it. He grades very quickly and is always willing to go out of his way to help. I would take future math classes from him in a heartbeat!
He made learning the methods really easy to understand.
He is great at breaking anything down so that you can understand it, he is patient and is willing to go back a few steps to be sure you fully understand the topic and all of it's ideas. He is great with explanations and making him self available to students.
Kyle definitely knows his material and he is able to make it very easy to understand. He is also very willing and patient to help his students understand what he is teaching.
Helping students outside of class time.
He makes Math the most ahmazing simplest thing in the world, thats a major Plus! He makes his lessons simple and to the point and I actually can understand math a lot more with him teaching it.
He not only knows what he is teaching, he also makes sure that we know what he is teaching. He will write a problem on the board and walk around helping and talking to students if they need help.
Being able to explain a problem step by step.
He knew the subject very well. Great personality and very helpful.
Mr Ishibashi was able to demonstrate that a complex was just like every other math problem. Gave us enough time to try the problem and would after go over it together. which really helped me a lot to understand the material.
course objectives and procedures were clear and he offer people to stay after for extra help.
the way his teaching is clearly, and very easy to understand.
Professor Ishibashi is very strong in teaching his lessons, very clear and straightforward. He was also accessible almost everyday after class at Kahala Mall, which is very helpful during the day before the exams.
He taught the class material very well. he is very helpful.
He knows the material and subject very well. Very intelligent instructor. Excellent communicator. Responds to emails promptly. I emailed him at 1:00am once and he responded 10 minutes after. He cares about his students academic. He gives extra credits to improve scores on the exam. If you miss a quiz, he'll let you make it up, but does not mean we should take advantage of it. We still have to show up to class to fully understand the material. He's somewhat lenient. He's able to adapt lessons to many learning styles and ability levels. He has a lot of patience and understanding. Speaks loud and clear. Good classroom management. Offers help when we need and flexible in office hours.
He explains and goes over everything very well and is a very good teacher.
Kyle is a very caring individual and you can tell he enjoys teaching. He is organized, professional, knowledgeable, with a mellow demeanor. He has every quality I feel a teacher should have.
He is very patient, and can go step through step through a problem very efficiently.
He is clear and is always willing to go over problems as many times as necessary. He is the best math teacher I've ever had:)
He presents the curriculum in a clear and easy to understand way. He's very nice and eager to go over something again if you don't understand it and he doesn't make you feel stupid when you don't get something.
His teaching style. I had to retake this course again. My previous instructor, lets say he was a bit difficult to understand and maybe expected you to know these things already so he moved faster and barely explained. On the other hard, Ishibashi is great. He has notes for you, lectures you and goes step by step on explaining with examples etc.
made it really easy to learn and knew his subject really well
Kyle was very kind to all of his students. He offered to tutor us and to encourage us to ask for help in his free time and been patient the whole way. He would always make sure we understood our assignment. He knows a lot about math, and showed multiple ways of solving certain problems.
commitment to students success in math
he knew what he was talking about and was willing to help students if they didn't understand
EVERYTHING! I hate math but with kyle as my teacher i can understand everything he teaches! he makes it so easy to understand. And the best part is that hes always available to help. even other teachers cant explain the way he does. Its clear and simple. and with exams if your really not ready he'll give you an extension and help you study. He even gives practice exams that prepare you for the exam. if you do them you'll know what your doing. Math became one of my favorite subjects again. SERIOUSLY, BEST MATH TEACHER IVE EVER HAD!
He knows his math. He is very clear and detailed in demonstrating the math problems. He teaches in a way that is so effective and helpful in trying to understand each and every section in which we are learning. He also corrects our homework and test right away so that we have it by the next class.
The way he teaches the class in a clear and understandable way.
He shows concern for his students. He teaches his material in a very understanding way. He makes difficult things easy to understand. He provides study guides for his students which helps us out for our tests.
He is a very patient teacher and he doesnt mind going over things again if someone needs help in the class. he also makes the subject seems very easy and entertaining so i enjoy coming to class.
Kyle's major strengths where to give alot of examples during class. Also if we didn't understand he would re-explain the problem.
Knows subject. Makes math easier to learn.
His notes, his explanations. His answers to your questions and his dedication to help you.
Knows the subject area really well

none
None did a great job!
none
nothing special
None.
no changes!
Kyle is an excellent instructor. He is better than some of the other instructors I encountered, but he does move too fast in his teaching. Sometimes he would lecture on two chapters. And the amount of homework he gives is a lot, which I understand because we need practice. Seriously the homework does take a lot of time especially if your bad in math. Not too bad if this was your only class. Some students have other commitments and responsibilities like jobs and other classes. Because he lectures too fast, sometimes it's hard to keep up. It's really tough to be behind this class. Once you get behind, you tend to forget what he lectured and if we are too shy to ask for his help, it's up to ask to learn the material on our own. Because he's fast in his teaching, it makes me feel intimidated asking for his help because I feel that he expect us to understand it right away. If he teaches again next semester, maybe he can slow it down a bit and give a study review in class before the exam. There's a lot of problems in the exams and sometimes an hour is not enough to finish it. He is a good teacher for someone who is good in math.
None.
I suggest he sets his sites high and he could have any teaching job he wants......
No changes.
Nothing. Unless he wants to bring snacks for us on the last day of class.
Nothing, hes doing perfectly fine as is.
none
none. Great teacher! Supportive, Patient, Encouraging, Positive, and generous.
jellybeans in class
NONE!
No changes because what he does and how he teaches is outstanding.
None
Nothing
I'm not sure what suggestions to give him
None
None.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
showing more and more exmaple
He makes himself available to students anytime of the day. He made sure the class had his office hours, knew his teaching schedule, had his personal cell phone, and also told us he hangs out at Starbucks in the evening, so we can meet him there for tutoring. This is rare in a teacher, he's awesome!
He would redo problems if we didn't understand, until we understood. He was available outside of his office hours.
He always gave his office hours even his cell number to be sure students could contact him, if he noticed you needed help he would stay after class with you or try and make time to come and help you with your work.
Kyle makes his students available in and outside of class by email or by phone. He is very prompt with replies and is very helpful.
Gave students an opportunity to bring up your grade.
He made himself available everyday at work or at his chill time outside of work. He makes sure that anyone with a problem with the subject can understand what he is talking about.
he offers times when they can come and seek help from him daily. He helps students with their misunderstanding with the problems/section
If they need any help he is avaiable.
Would help out the class during quiz's and allow corrections to be done on homework.
he would always ask if there were and trouble on our homework and he would go over it right before the next lesson began. he would tell us to come see him after class or email him.
always help his/her students after class.
he walking around in class and tell us what we wrong when we solve question
Asking for any questions when one of us had a confused look.
Kyle sends the students grade sheets every chapter exam. The grade sheets give us an idea where we stand in the class. Kyle would check if we're on track with our homework and attendance.
Even though he is fast in his teachings, he still offers help if we need it. He is also concern about his students passing this course because he gives extra credit to improve exam scores.
He lets us students know how we're doing in the class in a timely manor and is always available for extra help if we need it.
In the classroom, he is very in tune with his students and can tell who is following and who is not. He will slow things down, go over something again, or stay after class so you can ask him questions.
He asks each student how they are doing, and how else he can make his students better.
He was always willing to stay after class to go over any questions.
One time he saw me looking confused and asked me what was wrong. He's good at picking up facial cues. And he remembers names, yaaay.
I remember when a lot of us students didn't do too well in our exam, and he provided extra credit to bring our grade up. Um, I'm not sure but I go to his office hours for help and he does the same in class, clear instructions and goes over it until you understand what you did wrong/how to get the answer.
made himself available outside of class time and school hours and gave us extended dates to finish work if needed.
by offering all of us to study with him outside of school for those who needed additional help on homework or just the chapters in general.
willing to spend extra time to assist students
willing to help
He excuses you of you have work or if your sick and helps you when you come in for tutoring and will take time to explain to you about the lecture you missed. ive never seen so many students show up to tutoring before.
He always answered our questions. He explained things so clearly and always wanted to make sure we understood the math. He was always available for any student that needed help. He always took the time to go across the problems. He also corrects our homework and test right away so that we have it by the next class. This way, we can see where we need to study more of or try harder.
He was always open to talk to after class or you could text,phone call or meet up with him for study sessions.
He updates our grades after every test. I feel like that is good so we can see how we are doing in his class. He is willing to help any student who doesn't understand what we are learning. He spends a lot of his free time offereing his services to us. He also returns assignments back the next class which is good also because he lets us make corrections on the problems we got wrong.
He shows concern by constantly asking if we are all on the same page, and he also encourages students to see him outside of class or meet him at Kahala mall where he grades papers, just incase anyone needs help. He makes himself available outside of class, which is very helpful.
He would email the students report card after every test. Also he would tell them in person or through email that they need help or they should just drop out
Worked with students outside of class
Talked to you one on one, would explain anything to you till you understood.
He knows when we look confused and what not, he'll ask us straight up if there's something wrong or not clear.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, good to learn basic math
Yes, absolutely. He makes math so easy to understand and he grades fairly. You work for your grade and feel good about it afterward. He's always willing to go over anything as many times as you need. It's tremendously helpful to those who struggle with math.
Yes. He grades fairly, and teaches well.
Yes, he is an awesome teacher I wish he could teach math 25-205 so that I could take his class every semester.
I would recommend Kyle to other students because he made math a lot easier for me to understand compared to my last math teacher. Kyle makes sure everyone understands the material before moving on. Kyle is more than fair when it comes to the homework and the quizzes. If you make the effort to do the work then he is more than willing to help you when you need it.
Yes, All of his assignments were explained very efficiently.
Thats a most definitely YES! He is rare, he is one of those people that can actually explain math in clear plain english words not just in numbers.
Yes, he is by far one of the best math teachers i have ever had. Very clear in teaching and very helpful when wanting to learn.

Yes. Kyle take a lot of his own time to help his students succeed in his class. Kyle is very helpful when you have a question. His class is clear and straight forward.
Yes if you like math and you enjoy it take kyle, but if you are a little slow in math maybe you might want to take someone else. He is an excellent instructor, but he does move fast in lectures. You have to be able to to take notes fast as well, but if your not too shy to ask for help, he'll help you.
Yes he is the best. He will make you understand anything.
Kyle was recommeded to me and I would recommend him to anyone. Any student would be lucky to have him as a teacher.
Yes, I would recommend other people to him because you will easily learn math.
I would recommend him to any student that is intimidated by math like I was!
I would recommend him to others because I like his teaching style, he's really nice and doesn't make me feel stupid, plus, eye candy. A good looking teacher is conducive to a good learning environment and makes me want to get better at math.
Yes, I think I iterate his style too much, but it really does help. Professor is a chill teacher and hes able to get to your level, meaning hes easy to talk to and get to know on a personal level...which is good because with some teachers they don't care or remember you.
youll learn math alot faster and easier
Yes, Everyone! He will make you have a different outcome in math. For me, Math was always my weakest subject. Now, I enjoy learning about math, and when I do understand the work, it becomes fun for me.

Kyle is a wonderful instructor and I hope he continues to teach! I'd really like to see him teaching higher level math so I can take his classes in the future.
Outstanding and learned a lot without knowing any knowledge or experience of algebra.
Keep up the awesome job. You rule the Math world in KCC.
you had great environment for learning math and is a great instructor
None.
I wish I could have him for every math class!
Over all he is the best!!!
I think he knows how good looking he is, he's always extra nice to the girls. Just sayin'.
thanks for being a great math teacher
im not taking math next semester because i know theres not a better teacher than kyle! i know theres tutoring but they suck in explaining!
I learned my math in a whole different way because of how he teaches. I may have not done well on my test but it is not because of his teaching. It is only from my own self trying to remember all the different problems, equations and math situations.
Good luck in California! :)

I definitely will recommend him to other students because he is a very good teacher. He really knows his subject area, and his teaching ways are very clear, very understandable.
YES!! He is the best math teacher I have ever had!!
YES, of course. I would because I had a math 25 teacher before him who did not do all of this for me. Kyle has and helps me to not feel stupid. He makes my other friend not feel stupid too unlike our last teacher.
Yes because he is a good teacher and he teaches well.
Yes, definitely. I wish he was teaching Math 103. His teaching is very easy to understand especially for students like me who are weak in that department. The best teacher I'd had thus far.
Yeah, because he is a all around good teacher.
Definitely Yes! He was the right teacher for Math, he knows the subjects well, and openness of conversation to any question about class subjects.
Yes!!! He is very fair.
yes, because he does the job best
Absolutely. Math is my worst subject and he helped me really learn and understand what I was doing. I wish all professors were this effective at teaching.
Most deff. He was an excellent teacher. Its to bad he doesn't teach other sections at KCC. Its hard to find a good math teacher.
I have been telling everybody that Kyle Ishibashi is awesome. I make sure all my friends who are going to take Math25 to take his class. Highly recommended.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
He is good at explaining the material in a way that everybody can understand.
He presents the information in a way that is easy to understand. Very skilled teacher...real, laid back, but also expects students to be responsible for themselves. I like how he always put up practice exams..that helped a lot. Also, I always knew what was expected of me. If I ever had to contact him, he was quick to respond. Thanks for a great semester.
his strengths is his knowledge in the material and lectures as well as having a great sense of humor throughout class. he also explains each problem step by step and reteaches if a student doesn't understand.
he made a difficult course extremely easy to understand. missed a section and tried to figure it out myself, no luck. 10 minutes with kyle and it was clear as day.
He knew the subject well.
patient and very helpful for those of us who dont learn math easily. i was able to understand his teachings more than other math teachers in the past.
He has patience with the students. He speaks loud and at a good pace so we dont get lost and confused and miss information.
Knew the material like the back of his hand.
I think him being young (or maybe it was the way he was dressed that made him so young) was the reason why I liked his class so much. He kind of reached to us on a personal level, eye-to-eye. He was VERY clear in his lessons (which was GREAT for me because I actually learned something) and he's very smart but he translated that in a non-pretentious way. He would crack a joke or two and this class didn't seem intimidating at all.
The way his teaching style was, he made it very easy and understandable. He broke down the steps in solving a math problem very clearly. With some other math teachers that i have taken in the past, it did not compare to anything of his teaching styles. I hated math but for some reason this semester, he made me love it! Teachers in the past made it feel like math was very complicated and hard to grasp, but he made it seem like it was very easy to understand. I wish there were more math teachers like Kyle.
Knows his stuff. Presents material in a clear manner, easy to understand.
he is very understanding with how you present your answers on homework assignments. he also puts in the time to help us before class starts and asks us if we need any help on any problems.
MATH, MATH, MATH, MATH!
Knew the subject very well and showed concerned for his students.
He knows the field very good and teaches in a way everyone understands.
He knew was he was talking about, went through problems slowly and repeated problems so we understood
Very informative lessons and very willing to help students outside of class.
He is very intelligent. He made sure to break everything down into steps so that students could understand.
He's cool and knows the the subject well. He's a fair grader and he makes class fun where students participate in class lectures.
He explains the material very clear and will explain it well enough for everyone to understand. He is ALWAYS available if you need help. He encourages questions if you don't understand and will help you until you do understand. He is very FAIR and WANTS you to do well! He NEVER gives up on us. BEST math teacher I have had for my 3yrs I have been in college.
Helping his students out, explaining things well, and giving us chances to make our grade higher.
teaches good
Understanding students, and explaining things clearly.
He is very clear with explaining problems. Gives helpful examples and makes sure students understand the material. His tests are fair and straight forward. I appreciated the fact that he gave practice quizes to keep everyone up to date with the material that was covered. He is excelent with responding to emails.
good at taking his time and explaining things that students dont understand
Great and going step by step through problems and keeping students conscious about when exams are and the homework.
Mr. Ishibashi was really good at explaining the material in a way that is perfect for community college students. He breaks down everything to a T, even if we don't need to know something for a test, learning the little things help the students with understanding why a formula works a certain way, etc.
knows his stuff
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
N/A
nothing really, he seems to know exactly what he's doing and class lectures are really simple to follow along as long as you take notes and do the homework assignments.
none
nothing, i enjoyed the class and was encouraged by the way i was able to understand the material because i usually dont understand math that well.
Besides that one time I tried to turn in my redo for my homework and he didn't accept it (but it was my fault that I procrastinated), I as a student didn't seem to have any problem understanding the material.
None, he's the best!
the only thing that I would suggest Kyle to change is that maybe he should go a bit slower when it comes to really difficult problems.
none comments.
Nothing.
None
Nothing at all.
None
None.
In my opinion, give due dates to all homework assignments that way they're able to learn the material better, instead of doing the homework the last minute and forgetting how to do everything.
no changes
none
Make class more fun. I know were just learning about math but its hard to sit in a chair for over an hour just writing numbers the whole time.
n/a
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He responded to email promptly and effectively. He is very patient and willing to go as slow as he can to make you grasp the material.
He knew that some of us had very full plates with jobs and other life stuff. He did have expectations, but they were fair.
always allow room for questions throughout class lectures, and helps any students when they need it. also offers a lot of after class help.
had open hours
gave us opportunity to correct wrong answers on math homework and gave us practice tests with a good amount of time to complete them and come back to class with questions before the actual test.
He always sends us emails about important information and he posts practice exams so that we can study for up coming tests
Spent as much time as you needed in order to understand the concepts.
He would always recommend him come see him at his office and he would always be at Kahala Mall outside of Starbucks if we needed help. I find that great because for a teacher to be accessible in and outside of class which is rare I think especially in college.
He asked if we had any questions. He was available after class and outside of class if we needed any help.
he asks everyone before class starts if anyone needs help on the homework problems. he also lets us redo homework assignments if we get a less than 5 on it, and we could redo it again and again and again until we get a 5 out of 5 before the exam that's is based off of the homework.
warns the students if they haven't good at test. and must ask him for help before the exam on day.
He would meet up with the students outside of class, either in his office or at kahala mall.
To email him about any homework or questions. Also stays after class if anyone needs him.
responded to emails, gave alternative opportunities if we did bad on exams and hw
He made sure to give evryone a chance to turn in incomplete work.
He told us his schedule of when student can meet him before and after class time. He understands that this subject is not easy and would offer retakes for tests.
When giving us problems to do in class he will walk around and make sure each and every one of us understands what we are doing. I struggled on some things and he would come by and explain it to me until I understood. if he sees that the majority of the class is struggling on a problem he will go back to the front of the class and explain it in another way until we understand.
He allows us to correct our homework and gives reviews.
By being very accessible to them outside of class.
He took time to individualy approach each student while doing practice examples in class. He passed by each student's desk to review their work to make sure eveyone is on the right track.
He makes it very comfortable for students if they need help. He always reminds us of his office times and other times hes available for tutoring.
Making sure he takes time with each student to make sure they understand the work.
He put up multiple versions of practice exams and was available most after office hours to help. He gave email reminders as well as sent us our scores once they were done.
He made himself available to students as much as they needed.
n/a
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, you can learn a lot from the professor. If you have a hard time with math, Kyle always tries his best to help you understand.
Yes! Actually I already have.
highly recommend, though there is a lot of homework and is somewhat tedious i can see why he gives it out, it really helps when it comes to the final exams. fun teacher and explains very well, also is willing to help every student.
yes. makes life easy
yes, he know his subject well.
yes, easy to understand and very helpful and willing to answer any questions we had about the material.
Yes because he knows his subject very well and its great with teaching
Yes, very good at teaching the subject
Yes because he knows his stuff and he's going to teach it to you and a clear and precise way. He's a little lenient (a little) but it's enough for you to get a good grade and still work hard for it.
Sure, because he's teaching style is the best! He made math seem so easy to understand and grasp. Take him because if you get his teaching style you will do great in math!
Yups, most definitely. Very easy to learn from the way he teaches.
I would actually recommend Kyle Ishibashi to students because he is very understanding and he wants all his students to pass math 100 and be able to move onto either another higher math level or in life.
yes, because he's good instructor and explains clearly.
Yes because he is a very good teacher. He is also cool.
Yes because he teaches the field very good and speaks loud to the class in a good clear voice.
yes, his exams are quite easy if you study for them and he gives homework questions that will really relate to future not just non sense questions
Very informative lessons and very willing to help students outside of class.
Yes! He is a great teacher.
Yes, because he is a great teacher that knows the subject and when a student needs help he's able to help them.
YES! He was recommended to me by another student and I did not go un-pleased. Math is not a favorite for many students but Ishibashi made the material easy to understand and gives you chances to do better. He does not give up on his students, he wants you to do well, all you have to do is ask!
Yes, good teacher who knows the material.
Yes. Best Math teacher ever!
I would definitely recomment Kyle Ishibashi to other students. I am a horrible math student, math is most hated subject, but he teaches in a way that students can clearly understand. He makes math understandable and easy to comprehend.
I would recommend Ishibashi.
Yes, he is one of the math teachers that actually helped me understand math and use it effectively.
I would absolutely recommend him to other students because if I can pass a math class, ANYONE can!
yeah, hes a pretty okay professor.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
pretty straight forward teacher and is very logical.
nice guy
nothing.
Good job!
Great professor, he always help me when I having difficulty on homework.
He's a cool, chill guy but yet a very good teacher that can actually teach math and make it seem not so complicating!
Kyle is very responsive when it comes to email he is very quick with replying to emails.
Thank you for help and explain to me how to solve that problems.
N/A
He made me understand math 100 way better than the other teacher which i dropped the first week!
Excellent teacher.
I enjoyed his class. I never did so good in school before. I was able to do all my homework, pass all the exams, and finals are coming up and I am almost certain I will end the semester with an A in his class. First A in my whole college experience. I always asked for help and he helped me until I completely understood, not many teachers will dedicate their time like he did. Throughout the whole semester I never had to worry about math because if I'm struggling Ishibashi would be there to help me!
He is an excellent Math teacher.
He is a good person and even better teacher! Though he probably won't be here much longer because of greater things out there, he is an asset to the college.

thanks for a great semester!
While in class it was sometimes difficult to see what was being written down on the board due the fact 6 students' heads were blocking my view. Repeatedly I needed to stand up from my chair to see. Mr. Ishibashi seen me but continued to write on the bottom of the board, i felt very displeased that during the first 6 weeks there was a lack of consideration for the students in the back of the classroom.
We need more teachers who teaches like him at KCC!
None comments.
i like he gives enough time for students to study the exams and do the make up work.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
his teaching.
1. Thorough knowledge of the subject 2. Genuinely cares about his students 3. Prompt and efficient 4. Pleasant teaching style 5. Makes class fun
He truley cares about his students while explaining the class material he would look around at each student and if you looked confused he stoped explain to you what you dont understand until you did and then would move. In the end he would always have 100% of the class understanding what he just went over in class...Thats a teacher that cares about their students...
He presents material in a clear manner. He is flexible to the students needs. He allows you to correct your work, not only to get a better grade, but to encourage full understanding of math concepts.
He explains the material very well. The problem that I had with my math class last semester was that I felt lost with the material. Kyle explained it so well, that I understood it.
He knows this subject well and teaches you easier way to understand problems.
Kyle Ishibashi has a unique way of teaching. He has the ability to teach the important main subject in a timely manner. He is very fair. He has an awesome grading system. His greatest strengths as a teacher is being able to help students take a hard problem and make it into something that seems easy.
explaining the steps to problems we had questions about. he even made me understand word problems and how easy they are to do.
knowledgeable and helpful
Kyle is so patient and will break a problem down to the most simple form needed for any student in his class to understand it. He was SO clear in his explanations that I finally "got" things I had never understood EVER. He is an awesome, patient, gifted, knowledgeable teacher.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
nothing. great teaching ways, and cool guy. it was an honor to have him as an instructor.
none he does an excellent job keep on doing what your doing.
None!
None. He is an excellent teacher.
n/a
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
he sends us an email after a exam and shows us our grades to see how we are doing.
Before class, Kyle old ask if anyone needed any help with the homework. if so, the problems would be done step-byb-step and thoroughly on the board. He would not turn anyone away. Also during the quizes, he would offer any help he was allowed to give and made sure everyone understood the process of that certain section.
1. Answers all of our questions 2. Listens to requests 3. E-mails our grades promptly 4. Takes the time to check our work in detail when there is more than one right answer 5. Makes us practice tests
This is how kyle shows concern for his students. Mon,tue,wen,thurs,sun..8:00p-11:00p...kyle provides tutoring at kahala mall i have been their many of times. I have seen him help 8 to 10 students with diffrent levels of math and diffrent problems multi task it all at once....I DONT NO OF ANY OTHER TEACHER AFTER WORKING ALL DAY THAT WOULD USE THEIR PERSONAL TIME TO TUTOR THEIR STUDENTS FOR ANOTHER 3 MORE HOURS AND NOT GET PAYED FOR IT.....This is why i say Kyle truley cares for the well being of his students the proof is right their above..
He extends test dates if the majority of students show concern of readiness.
He made sure we understood the material before moving on.
He is willing to help you understand the subject better.
He offered extra credits. He would ask questions.
by letting us contact him whenever we could, he was very understanding when it came to emergancies or sick days.
Making time outside of class for us, giving us practice exams and lots of homework so we can really grasp the subject and what we needed to learn.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes. he is a great instructor, and has established an great learning atmosphere.
Yes, because he is not only a great and brilliant math teacher, but is friendly and easy to undertand and approach.
Yes, I would recommend Kyle Ishibashi to students because he is a great teacher, his class is fun, and I learned a lot.

Yes, very much so. Like I have said before, he explains the material really well. He breaks down the problem for you where you can understand it.
He is a great teacher and knows this subject well.
I would definitely recommend kyle to students because he teaches in way that not only help solve problems, but rather understand it and how math works.
yes, he makes math very easy to understand and he breaks it down so we can understand, learn, study, and take the quiz and pass.
Kyle is a great teacher, he can make the most complicated math problem make sense.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
great teacher, cool guy.
He's awesome!
Kcc should give him a rase...he is and asset to his students and kcc.
That is it.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
He is a kind and friendly teacher who cares more about his students than his own well being. He is not biased and treats everyone fairly and with respect
Kyle Ishibashi is a GREAT math teacher! Math is my worst subject so its much needed for a RIGHT teacher and Kyle ishibashi is just what math students need. He explains very clearly and always gives examples. Even if a student just does not quite get it he'll go over and over it with different senerios to make sure the student understands. He always sacrificed his time for example like lunch to tutor a student to understand more. It's clear to see how much he loves math and would help anybody to feel the same way.
Kyle Ishibashi's strengths as a teacher is that he is very well organized and he knows the material he is teaching. He makes learning fun and easy and that is something a lot of teachers don't know how to do.
Clear and understanding. Gets the point straight out and understandable! knows how to teach
he explained by giving the verbal and mathamatical deffinition of what he was teaching. he also gives examples of what he is teaching.
Mr Ishibashi understands students and does a very good job of teaching the materials.
Kyle knows his material very well and knows how to teach it well to his students to a point where it is easily understood at the end of lecture.
the best teacher i've had in a while!!
Prof Ishibashi is an excellent young teacher and I strongly encourage him to continue in the field of teaching. He has an excellent demeanor and a natural ability to comfortably connect with the students. I had a great learning experience with a rather difficult subject. Excellent teacher.
Professor Ishibashi is well organized and understanding. His teaching tools make learning math enjoyable.
gives us a chance to thouroughly understand the content of what he's teaching. super encourages questions. makes class enjoyable and still challenging. super patient.
Kyle is a modesty person. when I confused for some questions, he always check his answer first. He is a very good teacher!
He is very organized with teaching his sections, and is very prompt with grading quizzes and exams as soon as possible.
His major strength is understand the questions meaning.
Great at explaining things, when students find it confusing. He will take the needed time to really explain things.
Kyle Ishibashi's strength as a teach was that he knew the subject really well,does great examples and it relates to the hw and exams that we have in class. Also he gives us time and helps us with homework or quizzes when help needed.
he knows the subject really well & he makes it easier for everyone to understand the subject.
His knowledge of the subject.
All of the above. I dropped out of his class early but still missed the withdrawl time because of financial and pissed off mom reasons. But what i can say is that he is an exceptional teacher. I really liked his personality, his teaching methods, and his concern for his students (me). I needed the most help in class and yet he was still patient with me.
He is a good mood maker and I am pretty sure all the students in the class like him.
He is really great at explaining problems in a manner which you understand it fully. He uses a lot of examples to ensure that you understand the process of the problem rather than just getting the answer. His class seemed really easy because he's a really great teacher. He allows students to learn from their errors by letting them correct their homework an re-submit for full credit.
Mr. Ishibashi is very approachable.
He's nice and helpful!
I think his way of teaching is very understadable.
1. Ability to present material in a clear and concise way 2. Friendly and approachable for students to ask questions
Understanding, yet strict. Explained well. Dedicated.
he a great teacher all around.
He has none
Very Cool Professor. Smart and knows the subject well. Easy to understand and has teaching techniques that works good on me.
He knew his subject area very well and through that he was able to teach us the material very clearly.
He has extensive knowledge on the subject material.
For being always there if you needed help with the work. Also, for putting practice exams before the exam.
Strengths as a teacher is being well organized and giving students many fair opportunities to redeem their grades by letting them redo wrong problems on homework etc. Also, the process in which he taught was very understandable.
he was fair to all his students, and provided help outside of the classroom when it was needed
Kyle's strengths as a teacher is that he knew the subject well enough to make students understand it. He is very helpful; whenever a student is struggling he tries his best to explain the material even further for that student to understand it. He gives a lot of examples for student to try during lecture time and goes around class and checks if students know what he is lecturing about.
He knows his material very well.
He's much more relaxed than other math teacher's, and pays attention to the students to see if they show understanding of what he is saying. He had more of a tutor-like persona; it was more he wanted to help you to understand the material and pass the class than a teacher who wants to see how much you do not know. It created a friendlier and less-stressful learning environment.
Professor Ishibashi has an acute understanding of his students and their comprehension of the course materials and competencies. Prior to taking his Math 100 course I had an aversion to Maths (numbers in general), but Ishibashi worked one-on-one with me to make sure that I understood the formulas and how to apply them. He is easily accessible and always makes it a point to keep his office hours open. One benefit of having a younger professor like Ishibashi is the common understanding among individuals that are not separated by more generations than what can be counted on one hand. Clearly, this won't always be the case as we all follow the same life cycle, but I have a feeling that Ishibashi will find a way to relate to his students in the years to come. He shows a genuine interest in his students' performances: formulating analogies and exercises that students can easily grasp. Instead of teaching to the letter grade, Ishibashi teaches to the material. I almost forgot that I was being graded because I got so caught up in how interesting Math was -- an epiphany for me.
Kyle was fair if he knew we were having or had a difficult time on the exam he'll allow us to redo and learn from our mistakes and make up points.
He knows all the subject and tries to explain the lesson as easy as possible so that the class can understand it.
One of his major strengths as a teacher is putting up examples on the board which i thought was good because I like seeing more than one example. His practice exams are also helpful to have when preparing for an exam.
Kyle is an amazing teacher. He always gave me the extra help I needed when I was struggling. He gives grades promptly after every exam, I always knew what my grade was in his class. His teaching is very clear and to the point, he makes it very easy to understand.
He's a very good instructor. He knows his subject matter and let us participate in class..
His notes are really helpful. I don't have to read my book because he summarizes everything for you. ;D
Really understanding. Great at presenting the lectures in a very understandable manner. Makes sure students aren't totally lost and knows what they're doing.
He is good teacher. He explains the lecture very well, without leaving any confusions.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Nothing.
I don't want him to make any changes, he's already so good and reasonable.
none
go over more difficult examples
None.
No changes
no changes needed!
Dress more appropriate. You are much better than you appear.
No changes.
teach other sections too?
Some people said Kyle gave us too much homework. But I think this method is good for math class. Doing homework is a good way to practice and learn math.
I wouldn't change a thing.
He did very well in communicating as well as understanding our problems.ã??
Nothing that i can think of that he can change his teaching skills. I like the way how he helps us with the homework and gives us a chance to redo some problems so that it can help us with our grades.
none!
I wouldnt change Kyle, i would change all the students that take his class and that i am stuck putting up with!
Nothing! I really enjoyed the class.
I think he should talk to every student more equally. As far as I see, he asked just certain students if there is any question during class. I felt unfair for that. I think prfessor schould treat students fairly.
None.
none
Different profession
Stay the same. A very good professor!
None. He was very concerned and worked hard to make the students work hard for our grades.
None.
nothing everything is okay.
No changes.
nothing
I suggest that Kyle should try to post up the practice exams much earlier then just one class meeting before the exam date. For example, if the class meetings are on tuesday, thursday and the exam date is the following tuesday; he would only post up the practice exams on thursday which only gives the student to study over the weekend. Kyle should take into consideration that students aren't only taking his class, most students has other classes to worry about. So he should try to post the practice exams like 2 weeks before the exam date.
I really enjoyed his way of teaching. I don't think he needs to change anything.
He may be a little too lenient on some things and could've increased the difficulty a little further to prepare the students to who will move on to the higher levels of math.
None what so ever. In fact, if students had access to professors like Ishibashi there wouldn't be a literacy problem or so many sections of pre-college Mathematics. My biggest gripe is that he doesn't teach anything higher than Math 100. I would have jumped at the opportunity to take another class from him. I would encourage him, when he's ready, to explore this possibility. Whatever he decides he is an asset to the University of Hawaiâ??i faculty and students.
none
None
Put out the practice exams a little bit earlier.
I have no changes. I think he is a wonderful teacher.
I don't have thing to suggest on how he teaches but a thumbs up to him..
Nothing.
N/A
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He was able to give the maximum amount of help needed with good office hours.
He shows his concern by helping right on the spot of confusion. If he's on an example, he would go on till every single student gets it. If it's gonna take longer, then he'll advise that student to meet him in his office hours for more help. He always has grades fast and ready for us.
He shows concern by allowing his students to redo the homework to achieve the highest possible grade we can. I think that it's awesome because it allows us to learn what we got wrong and receive credit for it.
If we needed help he was right there ready to help!
he met with people even when he did not have an office. he also help people outside of school when he was gradeing work.
He made himself available to students who needed help with the homework. He gave his students an option to redo exam problems to get a better grade and give them a better understanding of how to solve the problems. He also keeps the student up to date on their grades.
yes. he is very caring and really wants you to learn the material.
He was always available and in many different way. Office hours, e mails, cell phone, evenings at Kahala Starbuck's, I knew I could get in touch with him when I needed to. He is a good person for this job.
He gave us opportunity in class to ask any questions about last nights homework.
very understanding about un-avoidable circumstances and allows to catch up with the rest of class.
After exams were passed back to the students he would go over the problems that students had difficulty in. He is willing to help all students at any time.
Mr.Ishibashi shown great concern for his students.
Keeping posted for grades, sent emails out, gave extra credit assignments to those who really need it
He showed concern on how he made time before or outside of class if we have any questiong or concerns about any of the assignments or last min. review on what weve learned for the next exam to prepare for, also he makes practice exams and to see where us as a student where are strength's are and weaknesses.
of course! we meet up with him at kahala mall starbucks at night and he helps us while hes busy studying for his own exam also.
Yes he did. He was VERY patient with me and wish that all my other teachers could be like him. I needed the most help in his class because it takes me forever to learn something, but he still helped he and didnt treat me like an idiot. He still showed concern even though he is busy going to school himself.
He uses a lot of examples, and goes over everything as long as you ask. He reviews homework problems which students have trouble with. He also provides a lot of time where you can get help outside of school, such as office hours. He is also really good at keeping students up to date with e-mails and grade checks.
He sometimes email us where he located at and what time he's available if we might have some concern about the topic.
1. Practice exams helped tremendously 2. In-class examples/quizzes also helped 3. HW schedule/re-do's were helpful
Very available outside of class and helped struggling students with homework and math problems.
he was always walking around the classroom to see if we were doing the problems correctly. he helped us if we needed help or had any questions and was always available in or outside of his office hours
I wasn't aware of any concern
He gave us chances to turn in our homework until the day of the exam because he understood the hectic lives we may have. He also allowed us to contact him any time of the day if we ever had questions. He was also quick to respond or help whenever we needed any.
Professor Ishibashi was always willing to meet with students to clarify any material and was always willing to stay after to answer any questions.
If we do bad on our exams he gives us a redo and he average it out.
Made sure that he was easily accessible to the students outside of class and made sure we understood the concepts before moving on to a next section.
he gave help to those who needed it outside of the classroom
Kyle shows concern for his students by posting up practice exams on his website for students to work on and see if they are ready for the exams. If not ready then to get the student to be familiarize with what kinds of questions are going to be on the exams. He also shows concern for his students with the homework policy of turning in work multiple times to get a perfect score on that assignment; however, there is a limit to when a student can turn in any work for that chapter. The last day a student can turn in assignments that were assigned for that chapter is on the exam date, which I think is very reasonable.
Yes he did. He would always tell us to let him know if we needed help. In class and even outside of class he was always willing to spend his time helping students.
For the most part, he would check on the student's as they were doing in class assignments to make sure they were understanding the material he just lectured upon.
Ishibashi has a knack for going above and beyond what is expected of him. This was evident when I began studying for the SAT and ACT. I lacked the proper education in geometry and Ishibashi took the time to sit down with me and explain what should have taken a year in a matter of two sessions. After taking the SAT and ACT I scored a 2160 (710 in Math) on the SAT and a 32 on the ACT. Because Ishibashi is so good at explaining the course material I was able to take what I learned about atomic statements and apply it to my English classes.
He'll send emails to us updating us when our practice exams are up.
He always talks to the student who are failing class and remind them to do their test and turn in their homework.
He would pull them on the side and talk to them.
He is always more than happy to help, very easy to reach, responds quickly to emails. He spends as much time as you need to completely understand the material.
He make sure that he update his students if we are failing or passing..he also give us a chance passing our homework even though it's already a due date.
He update us with his office hours and stuffs. If our topic is kind of complicated, he reminds us to ask him for help after class.
When students had a hard time understanding the work, he helps them out and does everything to make sure they know what they're doing.
He encourages us to do well on the exam and give us review sheets that help us prepare for the chapter exams and provided review days for the final.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes I would, this is because Mr.Ishibashi is a student and is not just a teacher. So he knows what we are going through and this way he can sympathize with us on the stress load of work and such, which would make him the perfect teacher for any student.
Yes, I would highly recommend Kyle to all students because he is a outstanding math teacher.
Yes,one of my favorite teachers! He is so helpful and helped me understand math VERY clearly, and I suck at math! But Im getting an A!
yes because he was very helpful
helpful when you go and get help
I would recommend him to students because I know that students who take his class will leave with a better understanding of the subject.
Yes because he teaches his material well, i always have a hard time in math and now i am getting B and i learned a lot throughout the semester.
most definatly.
Absoulutely. Cause you can learn, comfortably. Because one mistake is not the end of the academic career for you. Cause he will make time for you, in many different ways. And it wont be uncomfortable talking to him.
I would recommend Professor Ishibashi because he is a great teacher. He opened my eyes and got me to love math.
Yes, because although its a lot of content, you actually learn and retain the information unlike some other classes.
Of course! I already recommend him to my friends.
His course of Math 100 is a difficult course but i would definitely recommend him to other students, because he is willing to always help and is very kind. He is organized and knows how explain the material to where you have a better understanding.
Yes, I would recommend Mr. Ishibashi to other students. Because of his outstanding communication toward students in his class.
Yes, great teacher, understanding!
Yes!,i would definetley recommend this to all students who are taking any sort of math because he knows what the subject really well. Also that the help and time he gives us really show's that he care for his students and wants us to succeed in the math course. He breaks things down and easily for you so that each of us understand the subject.
totally recommend!
Yes i would recommend him. He is the kind of teacher that every student wants. I dropped out of his class just because i had my own problems going on and math 100 is hard and redidulous PERIOD!!!!!
Yes.
Yes. He is a great teacher. He makes you learn the material rather than just memorize it. You learn how to apply the formula to different problems. His class is really a great one if you want to learn.
He made himself available when necessary for the students.
Yes!!! he's a cool guy and he makes the class work easy!
Yes. Kyle is a very good teacher and presents the material in a way that is easy for students to understand. He is very approachable and wants to help students learn the material. He also creates a good environment for students to learn and makes himself available for office hours.
Definitely. He's a fantastic teacher who really knows his stuff.
yes, you will learn and if you study its not hard to get a good grade
I would never use recommend and any course he teaches in the same sentence.
Yes! Very good and cool professor. He makes MAth fun and easy.
Yes, absolutely, because I found that he is a genuine teacher that adapted to the busy lifestyles of his students. He cared about his students getting the course material right, the right way!
Yes, because he affords the opportunity for students to continually increase their grade and he is motivating in his teaching method.
YES! He is good at what he is doing even though I'm getting a "B" in the class. But he is actually nice and helpful teacher.
I would recommend him because I like his teaching style and he shows that he cares for students.
yes because he was help in and out of the class
Yes I would recommended Kyle to students because he is a very good teacher. He knows how to explain the course subject very well enough for students to understand and not get lost. Like I am usually a C student when it comes to math so thought I wasn't going to do well in his class but he taught the subject well enough for me to understand. Also he is always up for questions that students may have.
Yes because I really liked his way of teaching it made it easier for me to learn.
I would definitely recommend students to take his Math 100 class as it was appropriate for its level, and suited to students who don't have an affinity for math and may give up when it is too difficult.
Professor Kyle Ishibashi is the best Math professor I have ever had and within my top-three all-time outstanding educators. Unlike many Math teachers at Kapiâ??olani Community College, he has clean grammar and is a native English speaker, which helps a lot when he lectures. It would be nice to see more Math teachers well-versed in the English language so that they can proficiently teach. Contrary to what I have seen in my past three Math courses, Ishibashi is personable, relatable, willing to share with his students and open to compromises as long as the student is grasping the course material. I enjoyed Math so much this semester that I am moving on to a higher Math course even though I have very well satisfied my Math requirement. Along with that he has inspired this English major to reconsider Electrical Engineering.
Yeah, he is a good teacher if you take the notes down and are present for class. If we were absent or didn't take notes we would be lost the next time you come to class.
I would recommend him to students because he's really good on his topic. He doesn't let the student get lost in solving the problems. He always tries to help the students if they don't understand some components of the lesson. He always makes time to explain something if the class seem confuse.
I would definitely recommend him to other students because he tries to help his students as much as he can.
I would definitely recommend him because being a person who always struggled in math, he made it very easy to understand and enjoyable. I liked everything about his class.
A big YES..because he is a diligent and very good instructor..he's the best...
Yes. He looks scary at first (because of his deep voice), but he's really cool and nice.
Yes, because he was actually one of the best teachers I've had this semester. One of the most understandable teachers out there.
I would recommend him because he knows what he is talking about and he explains the lecture very well. He also connect with his students where they will feel welcome and free to say things that are related to the topic.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
He is a good teacher for those who are willing to learn but are also willing to work for there grade.
he's GREAT !
You are the man!
He is lenient on turning in homework and exams and he seems really cool.
He is a great teacher.
Keep it up i guess.
Kyle is a very nice person, and he is a good teacher too. I do not like math in my home country, but after take his class, I felt math is very interesting.
He's a great teacher, and if i had to take another math class i would take his class.
Awesome teacher,really reccomment him to students! Great preperation for class lectures. Easy to talk to when help is needed! GREAT teacher!
You are an awsome teacher, keep up the good work!
That he is the only teacher that I didnt want to drop out of class the first week. It was mainly the math part that made me leave.
Thank you for helping me!
good teacher
I wish I had him for my other math classes!
nothing
Nothing
I am very lucky I was in his class and had the chance to be his student and learned a lot from him.
Great semester!
Nothing.
Hawwww i'm getting a "B" and i wanted to get an "A." =[
I like how he let us redeem ourselves fairly on assignments and checked to see if we were doing homework.
He is an excellent teacher. He knows the course subject very well.
Nothing.
He's a great guy. He tactfully straddled the friend-professor boundary without crossing either.
none
He gives a lot of homework but if you do poorly on it, he will give you the chance to redo it. He also prepares study guides and gives them 1 week before the test so that the students will have time to review.
I enjoyed learning from him and if he taught higher math I would take him again.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
well, thank you for this semester..i learned a lot from you and hopefully, i can take classes again if i take higher math..thank you..
His quizzes are easy. Sometimes we talked about it in class and if you answered it wrong, you could change it before you turn it in. For his homework,you could redo over and over until you get it perfect (for a full credit).
He is very good teacher.
18. Other comments:
Keep up the good work!
Wishes that he teaches all math subjects.
I hope you teach all the other subject.
I hate math 100. Too bad i need it to pass though. I think all the old people in that book just wanted to make a name for themselves before they die. But fool them, ill never remember them anyways!!
I have never felt more discouraged from learning as I have in this course.
None.
nothing.
I wish Ishibashi the best of luck in his future endeavors. I am indebted to Ishibashi for his hard work and great teaching dexterity. He embodies the art of teaching.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
mostly math
Professor Ishibashi clearly understands math and has an enviable ability to make it accessible to all.
Approachability and extra time given to students (myself) who were having trouble grasping some of the concepts.
One of them is his availibility. I was able to text him if I wasn't able to make it to class or email him about homework. He would always respond promptly to my messages and let me know if and when I could turn in homework or coach me through email on how to work out the problems. Another strength of Kyle's is his ability to teach outside of the book in a very systemic approach. The problems we would work out would sometimes be random and he wouldn't know the answer until we all did the steps to find it.
He went over problems (either lesson examples or homeworks) with students. He asks the class if there's any questions on the steps of solving problems. Practice exams were very helpful...and he lets students know of their grades quickly. Learning algebra again was easy after taking his class.
his major strength is to be able to explain and clarify any confusions students have with math, so he explain alot clearly in class.
He has time in the beginning of each class where he goes over homework problems that we don't understand.
He really makes sure his students understand the material, that EACH student understands it. He really pays attention to his students which is great.
Kyle is a great teacher, his teaching style made this class easy for me. Very clear and easy to understand.
Has good teaching methods. Encouraged everyone.
He did his best on trying to find ways to help students understand the material he was teaching.
Communication. Veru strong voice. SO LOUD.
He is very concerned about students that are struggling and is more than willing to help outside of class time. He is also very understanding and knows his subject well.
He's patient and understanding. He's also very personable and doesn't make you feel like you're stupid.
He is a teacher that encourages students to enjoy doing math while learning, and he breaks it down for us to learn easier.
Kyle is a wonderful teacher... He made math 25 a fun and intresting subject to learn about!
knew his material. Very good teacher.
wants all his students to succeed.
I do not speak and understand English very well but his teaching skills are very clear and easy to understand.
Kyle's major strength as a professor is he knows his Math very well. His technique of teaching, matches the way I learn Math, therefore this was a good match. He shows concern for his students fairly. He is a great professor.
Great organization skills and time management. He knows his stuff well and teaches it in a very logical way. It was much easier for me to learn from him than my other math teachers.
He's so awesome when teaching math, he gives students so many examples so that students understand the methods that he's teaching and he pays attention to his class, if he notices a student with a "dumbfounded" look he tries to give more examples so that everybody in the class is on the same page. He's down to earth and treats his students with respect, and his students respect him back. He has an excellent rapport with everyone in his class, and he remembers his students names.
Kyle is very helpful and a great instructor, KCC should have more instructors like him!

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
good for ask when he will help us to review these chapters in math, and also teach us how to solve this problems.
He has helped me in completing the course objectives while working around my unusual circumstances. While teaching he consistently will walk around and make sure that you receive individual help.
Kyle was available via email, texting, cell phone.
Kyle would always take the time to ask if anyone had questions. Sometimes the questions I would pose would be more complex than what the class was learning and he was able to take the time to answer and explain it to the rest of the class.
by telling them how they do on their homework, if they fall behind or need to make up to get better grades.
He would stay after class and help people who were having hard time.
He made sure to address any problems it looked like you were having. He went around the whole class to make sure no one was stuck, and if they were he would go up to the board and explain why something is the way it is, and so on..
he was accessible to students via email
Insisted people to come in for help.
Well, for me personally I didn't see it. When other students didn't understand it he would try to explain it more so that they could. After explaining he would wait a while to make sure they got it.
Met with students outside of class for additional tutoring
He's understanding when it comes to grading; he allows you to work through your mistakes.
Yes, he helps us step by step to learn the material.
He sets up studys groups for the people who need help.
Gave out of class opportunities for extra study.
always gives help when needed, gave out mobile #
When we have homework questions, he always explains before we start the new subject.
When I got frustrated by not being able to solve a difficult math problem, he would take the time to show me step by step, on how to solve the math problem.
He meets with them on his own time to help them study. He emails reminders and grades promptly.
When students presented concerns about the homework he would let us know that he'll stay after class to address the concerns instead of holding back the rest of the class. He always communicated to us changes in his office hours and stressed that if anyone wanted to see him about homework, just come by.
offering help after hours on own time.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
none comments.
Yes. As Carl Sagan was able to explain complex universal theories to the everyman, Kyle Ishibashi is able to do the same with mathematics. I have consistently come home from class thinking he is an exemplary teacher.
Yes. Kyle is an instructor that has an engaging personality that makes the students comfortable.
Yes. He is very clear about what he expects of the students and is always willing to answer their questions...even if there are numerous questions regarding the same thing. Patient and easy going. Everyone is equal in the class.
I would definitely recommend Kyle to students because I've taken a math course from several other teachers and have not been able to pass them because of the fact if you didn't "see" how to do it, there wasn't much explanation on "how". Kyle is the opposite, where the steps he takes you through to solve the problem is always the same regardless of how different the example problem might be. He gives you knowledge on anything that may "trick" you.
Yes...after being out of school for over 5 years, learning algebra again became easy.
yes i would recommend him to the students, he's a good instructor, has flexibilities if you need any help with that teacher, he would help :)
yes I definitely would because if he could make me pass a math class then he can help ANYONE pass.
yes. He was easy to understand and made this math class less intimidating.
Yes, Because he is a great teacher that loves doing what his doing.
I already did. He has a good teaching method. Better than any other math teacher i've had in the past 2 years...
Yes, he knows his subject and makes understanding math 25 easier. If you look puzzled, he will help you until you full understand. He is easy to talk to and more than willing to help you pass with extra tutoring if you ask.
Yes, definitely. He is the best math teacher I have ever had... He's very relaxed--which allows you to feel more comfortable.
Yes, because he is a good teacher, and you actually learn alot from his class.
Yes... Easy to learn from him!
Strongly recommend.
YES, the bomb
Yes, I would like to recommend him to students. In his class, I was able to learn and review each chapter.
I would highly recommend Kyle Ishibashi to students because he is a excellent professor and he knows Math very well.
Yes. He is one of the best math teachers I have ever had.
Absolutely, for students who are going into the higher math courses and need a step by step breakdown of math, he's the one to take. He doesn't just give the answers he helps to make you understand why a math problem has to be written a certain way, and if you make a mistake he gives you a hint to help you to correct the mistake without giving you the answer.
yes, very easy going, easy to understand, and very, very helpful!
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Thanks for teaching us clear how to solve problems and sometimes i have headache when I lost it for too much information. Explain while wrote the math equation that's really clearly good.
I would like to thank him for promptly replying to messages and helping me to catch up on the course material.
He's very patient with his classes and serious about it at the same time. If you don't keep up with the homework and quizzes, you will fail. If you listen and pay attention to what he has to say, you will learn. I thought I knew a fair amount about the material before going into the class. Now that I've completed the course with Kyle's help I know several methods of problem-solving.
Very chill professor and he made algebra easy to understand.
Hes a great teacher. Definitely an asset to KCC.
na
Great teacher :)
Ever watch Legend of the seeker? You look like Darken Rahl. It makes me laugh every time I walk in to class. xD It's okay you're a good teacher. Funny. You should stop drinking soad though. Energy drinks too, stick to water man.
Keep him at KCC, he's a great asset!
Coooool guy !
Kyle you are the man! -Kainoa Gasper
the bomb
I like the practice exams because it made me to understand deeply.
I learned alot by being in his class. He is always encougaging me to move forward.
I am so glad that i was lucky to get a professor like him, helping me through this back to school journey, and it made such a difference to be able to learn math again after all these years and have it click when the solution presents itself because your professor explained it in away that you understand what the book is trying to talk about.
Thank you Kyle! You made math enjoyable! Coming from a non-math person!

Mentally calculate equations quickly and shows an alternate route.
explain complicated problems very well!!!!!!!! =)
He's an excellent math teacher. he taught everything clearly with good examples and took his time in order for us to understand the work.
He is always on time and ready to teach, he grades quizzes, homework, and tests on time.
The instructers major strengths as the teacher was that he knew what he was doing and he portrayed his teachings in a way that we could all understand.
He makes explains math so its easier to understand.
He is very thorough in lectures.
Explains the material throughly, and if more help is needed he offers additional help outside of the class.

18. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Maybe to scold us more if we don't attend class. haha.
nothing everything was good!..
nothing
Just sorta slow down on the lectures, too fast. Sometimes I don't get the material right or just have a S.I. Supplement Instructor to help out the students in trouble. Also recommend tutor guides, MyMathLab, or other math software guides for math class, that would be helpful. I have seen students around me sorta struggling, sighing, or moaning about some math problems in the middle of the semester. But I don't blame you on the bad and broken down a/c that makes the room hot.
None
Class is boring. Don't really like having a quiz everyday. There's a lot of homework.
More office hours.
Make more comparisons to real life situtations to help students rememeber subject matter. Slow down in some areas of difficulty. Then again, he ways always there after class to help so that point my be moot.
nothing great job
Nothing.
Nothing...
none.
None. One of the best teachers I have had of all time.
19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He always answered the students questions correctly. He taught us very well. He helped us do examples on the bored so we would understand the problem more and get use to the idea. He helped the students very well.
Helping us if we got stuck on a problem and everything
He would help us with what ever problems we had in the work and stay back after class when asked. but normally he does anyway.
By responding to questions from student's concerns about a problem. Helps out confused students. Gives chances for students to correct their mistakes and work.
He showed concern for thhe students by asking them where they have been and if they need help in the subjects he would assist them as soon as class was over. Or even when we are in class he walks around the room and check if everyone was doing the work properly or if they had problems.
We talked and he told me that i could still pass. He also let me re-take a test that I missed.
He is always open to questions throughout class time, and help after class.
If you didn't understand the material, he offered help outside of class.
Talked about what I need to do to imporve my grades.
During each exam he would walk around a help students understand. So far he's the best instructor I've had.
let us know if we were missing anything and stayed after class for one on one explanation
Many times is right in the classroom and other times is via email.
by looking around the room and making sure if there are questions that it is addressed immediately.
Made sure we got what he was teaching, and showed his reasons.
Always trying to make sure we understood the coursework when we would show confusion.
when you don't show up for class for about 1 week, he would ask where have you been the past week? he knows everyones names and he knows if you miss class.
20. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
he uses simple explanation, and he alos explains terms which are used during class beggining of the class. english is my second launguage for me but i was able to understand his class.I really appreciate. he also spend his time after class answering my questions.
I would certainly recommend this instructor to students because the instructor has a very good teaching method. Even if you don't like math 25, i'm sure you'd be able to pass his class. He would help you out a lot.
Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!...one of the best Math teacher ever!..and every Nice too!!!!!!!!!
yes, because he makes it more easy to understand and get the math.
Yes! He teaches math very well, knows the math subject, and gives good examples on board.
I would recommend this instructer to everyone because he is a vey nice person and again he knows what he is doing and gives great assistance.
Yes. I've had much worst math class than his. His teaching methods are simple and he's not up tight.
Yes.
Yes, easy to understand, helps you with problems you don't understand.
Yes, he is a thoughtful and encouraging teacher.
Absolutely!
yes great math teacher
Yes. Kyle is very easy to understand and he can answer any question you throw at him.
yes because math is a difficult subject for me to understand yet he made it seem easier this time around... :)
yes, his lessons are very good. He wants to see you pass and not struggle.
Yes, because you could understand what the instructor was teaching. The instructor would do the problems step by step. If you had problems with homework he would do it on the board and show the steps for the problem.
Yes! He is so friendly and easy going, it makes it so easy to ask questions.
yes because he is very energetic guy and makes you laugh. he just really knows his subject well and his teaching method is awesome!!
21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
during his class, he explains about math,but he doesnt talk a lot other story which does not relate to teaching. so he used our leraning time efeeiciently and effectively.
He's overall a nice guy and a great instructor. It's too bad he doesn't teach math 100 :( haha.
enough said!.lol XD
Kyle, I learned a lot from you. But do you teach classes in the early afternoons also? But I hope you have a safe and Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! Also enjoy your holiday dinners and beverages! - From a student that charges his laptop battery almost every class.
Nothing
He's pretty cruise. His methods are simple and consistent. He grades all homework one problem at a time.
Class is fun and entertaining. Always looked forward to coming to class even after a long hard days work.
It was a pleasure being his student
No.
glad to have been in his class.
He's a great instructor.....
One of the best!! Hope you have him back for many more students to enjoy his teaching style!
