15. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She knows her material completely. She does not give busy work or cover anything that is unnecessary. She tells us only what is necessary for us to know, and only tests us on things that she has covered in class. She is very helpful with hands-on activities. She keeps the class interesting with relevant stories and always makes us laugh, everyday.
She tells you exactly what you need to know. She knows the material very well. She talks about everything she quizzes you on. There is no surprises in her class. She makes it easy to learn.
Sally know the subject area very well.
