The instructor's major strengths is that she was patient and helpful.

I would have to say that Ms. Ida is a great english teacher. A major strength from her was insuring that each student understood what she was teaching, but most of all she assured every student tried their best.
Mrs. Ida is always pushing us, students, to complete all of our assignments and mamange our time well. She deeply cares for each and everyone of us.
encouraging students to complete assignments.
Mrs. Ida's kindness and willpower too push the students into completing their assignments :)

She knows the area she teaches well.
Some of the major strengths that this instructor had was being able to explain things clearly and break certain things down so it would be easier for me to understand.
Her major strengths as a teacher is her speaking she speaks clearly and that is a good things because I can understand her and what she is trying to teach.

18. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none
no changes
No changes
I would suggest the instructor to give students to read one book for a semester rather than reading two or more.
none
to have more faith or confidence in her abilty's of teaching.
more time wid homework in class
None
She did good but anymore vocab word tests and i would've failed good thing i studied hard in the begging because it paid off in the end.
no changes
Nothing that i can think of while sitting here doing this survey. wait i can think of one thing to suggest... i say dont change a thing about what you do, for what you do is just as it should be.
No changes.
everything was done great no changes need to be made. the students just need to know that the studying helps.
None(:
no changes, Ms. Ida is a great teacher
NOTHING :) Just stay the same Mrs. Ida. You're the best :)
None
I don't really think that there should be any changes because I believe that the class was taught well.
I really don't know why we have to do timed readings. It really has no purpose in life. When are we ever going to be timed to read something....?
She is a great teacher and shouldn't change anything.
None.
Not much, I thought she did a good job :)
Try to talk to the students as if they were a college student, not a high school student.
She be a little more relaxed and allow the students to learn from their misktakes the first time.
I don't seem to have any comment on this question.
more interaction between the students. like group work and more studying games. it was a lot more fun and useful working like that.
Have an English 21 class not Vocabulary 21 class.
There is nothing that I could say that my instructor needs improvement on.
Teach to learn not for a job. Start a diffrent way of teaching.
19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
by emailing us missing work when we're absent
ask question
The instructor showed concern for the students by letting us know what we have missed in class and she also wants us to e mail her back our reason for not attending class.

she took immediate action whenever someone need help and at most times was there in her office during visiting hrs.
goin to each student and seeing if they needed help
She would ask the class if there are any quetions.
She help whoever needed help with there assignment
Taking the time to email myself and other students with the agenda that was missed on the day that any of us was not able to make it to class. Also tending to those who have special needs due to other reason i choose not to say, rather she is one of the best teachers i have had in a long time.
Instructor provided help and allowed meetings with student.
she let us study before quiz's. she spoke to students one on one that needed to bring up grade, and what needed to be done to do so.
Ms. Ida would push each student by helping them, weither it was figuring out their goals in life or assisting them with vocabulary. She would also try her best to make sure every student would try their best and come to class.
Mrs. Ida is always reminding us of whats to come for the next class and what's due. She also explains clearly and individually helps us.
she gave us a paper listing all of our assignments and what we need to do to pass the course.
She would remind them time to time to complete their missing assignments. She would also converse with each student after class session is over, or during break time.

20. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
sure
i would recomened this teachers to students who just got out of high school. she still teaches like as if its high school. so its good for them.
Yes, Because she is a great teacher who is fair. We learn at a steady pace and the work we have is reasonable.
I would say if your up for a challenge than go for it but if not then find another teacher. You really have to be on it in this course, if not then you'll fall behind.
yes because she is one of the easier teacher to learn from her way of teaching is better in most teachers i've know
Absolutely, because she help me reach to the last week of school.

Yes, Mrs. Ida is a great teacher.
i would because her teaching skills are good. and all you need to do is just listen and try to complete the assignments.
YEAHH!! TOTALLY :DD Because Mrs. Ida is the most awesomest professor there is out there. COME ON
Na cuz i don't recommend any
I would recommend students to take this class because they really drill the information into your brain.
yes, she is a sweet caring teacher who wants you to benefit from college and take it with you.
Yes and No, because I just don't see being graded on "Time Management" and doing "Timed Readings" is fair because there are students that don't really have time management, but they still get good grades and manage to get what they need to get done in the classroom. Also, like I said time readings....I don't understand the purpose of that.
yes I would recommend this instructor to students because she's nice, caring and, knows what's she's teaching
Yes, I would recommend this instructor b/c she's a nice teacher. Although she gives a lot of homeworks, most of them are very easy. You have to study vocab words to pass the quizzes.
Yes, because I have learned and lot, and know I will need that vocabulary in the future.
I would. She's pretty simple and organized. Know's what she's talking about.
Yes, she's a good and nice teacher.
Yes because she can make studying for words a lot easier and she knows what she is talking about.
Yes, because she makes you do a self-learning process where you do your own responsibilities on doing your homework and work, also she helps the students anyway possible in which gives us a chance in our school problems.
yes, because she's very nice and cares about her students. its very important to have a teacher who has concerns for us, unlike my math teacher. Ms. Ida is very open and will help those who ask for it. The time management assignment is really helpful, even though i did not do it. it made me realize that it plays a big importance in school and that i need to work on it.
Yes and no, depends on what kind of teacher the student is preferenced towards.
I would strongly recommend this instructor to future students, because my instructor is a well-taught, calm, sufficient, and a very patient person.
No. She needs to sincerly care about each student more.
