13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?

Helping students outside of class time. 
He knew the subject very well. Great personality and very helpful. 
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. 
Being able to explain a problem step by step. 
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. 
He made learning the methods really easy to understand. 
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 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. 
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. 
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 clear and is always willing to go over problems as many times as necessary. He is the best math teacher I've ever had:) 
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. 
He is very patient, and can go step through step through a problem very efficiently. 
He taught the class material very well. he is very helpful. 
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. 
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. 
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. 
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. 
Knows the subject area really well 
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. 
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. 
His notes, his explanations. His answers to your questions and his dedication to help you. 
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 
Kyle's major strengths where to give alot of examples during class. Also if we didn't understand he would reexplain the problem. 
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. 
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. 
Knows subject. Makes math easier to learn. 
The way he teaches the class in a clear and understandable way. 

14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?

None 
None did a great job! 
Nothing! He does what he does great! "oh shit!"< Dont change this, makes me feel good that you are human and you make mistakes. 
none 
Nothing, he does well. 
none 
Nothing at all. He's my favorite math teacher. 
Nothing. 
None. 
I suggest he sets his sites high and he could have any teaching job he wants...... 
nothing special 
No changes. 
no changes! 
Nothing. Unless he wants to bring snacks for us on the last day of class. 
None. 
none 
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. 
Nothing, hes doing perfectly fine as is. 
None. 
none 
none. Great teacher! Supportive, Patient, Encouraging, Positive, and generous.

I'm not sure what suggestions to give him 
NONE! 
No changes because what he does and how he teaches is outstanding. 
Nothing 
None 
None 

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?

Gave students an opportunity to bring up your grade. 
Would help out the class during quiz's and allow corrections to be done on
homework. 
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. 
If they need any help he is avaiable. 
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. 
He would redo problems if we didn't understand, until we understood. He was available outside of
his office hours. 
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 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. 
he offers times when they can come and seek help from him daily. He helps
students with their misunderstanding with the problems/section 
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 was always willing to stay after class to go over any questions. 
always help his/her students after class. 
he walking around in class and tell us what we wrong when we solve question 
He asks each student how they are doing, and how else he can make his students better. 
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. 
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. 
Asking for any questions when one of us had a confused look. 
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. 
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 knows when we look confused and what not, he'll ask us straight up if there's something wrong or not clear. 
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. 
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. 
Talked to you one on one, would explain anything to you till you understood. 
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 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 
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 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. 
Worked with students outside of class 
He was always open to talk to after class or you could text,phone call or
meet up with him for study sessions. 

16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?

Yes, All of his assignments were explained very efficiently.

thanks for being a great math teacher 
N/A 
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! :)
