25. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Ms. Sia always asks us questions to make sure we are paying attention. She talks to anyone who she thinks is struggling and reminds us of her office hours.
She would stop and help them with a problem until they got it correct. She would even just check over your answers if you asked her too.
always available for help
She always told us where and when she is available for extra help if need. She encourages us to see her if we do not understand something.
She allows questions and if people need help she does the best she can to help them.
She frequently ask students if they understand the lesson.
Professor Sia shows much concern for her students. She makes sure we know when exam dates are and questions why were were absent if it is necessary.
she always asked the class if we understand and if she wants her to go over things if we need.
She always asks if we have any questions, and will answer accordingly.
26. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Her accent is a little difficult to understand, but a great teacher.
It's a little hard to understand her but she always writes everything on the white board so it's easy to take notes. She gives lots of examples as well.
she needs to be more considerate with students concerns
good teacher, may go to fast during lecture.
She writes everything on the white board so the student is able to write notes or examples that go along with the homework.
Sometimes problem seem more complicated than they actually are.
She seems to know what she's talking about and is very smart in math.
Professor Sia is a very good teacher. She knows what she's talking about and is very humorous, well i think so.
she's a pretty good teacher. i just wish she could post grades online so students can see how they are doing in the class.
She is a good teacher. She is witty, but hard to understand. She does well delivering the information to the class but is kind of unclear in regards to expectations and things that are due and what will be on the test.
27. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, she is a good teacher, like I previously mentioned if you have issues understanding accents maybe not the best fit.
I would recommend her to other students. I believe that while she may be a little interesting personality wise she is a good instructor who knows her material and is willing to help students that are struggling.
not really she isn't that great of a teacher. we didn't learn much in this class
yes because she drills the material in your head.
Yes, I would recommend Professor Sia to other students because her class is very fun and she always has interesting stories or experiences to tell us. Her examples are very helpful when doing the homework because they are similar to each other.
Yes, because overall she teachers fairly well.
Yes, just stay focused, sit in the front and do your homework.
Yes, I would because she knows what she's talking about. However, it may be a little hard to understand her because of the pace she talks in and her strong accent.
Possibly, but not enthusiastically. She is a good and fair teacher yet some things are left unclear.
28. Other comments:
Has a great sense of humor, not intimidating to talk to, I like her very much.
I didnt enjoy this class. If the homework isn't returned on time it effects our test grades because we dont know what we are doing wrong prior to exams!!! Disappointed!!
She's a real @#$%

25. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Addresses any problems a student may have on their work, and she offers them a chance to re do it. She also tries to find time to offer help outside of class.
She was always available for outside of class help. This was on her own time and not getting paid extra. I really appreciated all of her time and commitment to us. It's good news to hear she will be getting an SI next semester.
Always asking questions,always making extra time outside of class.
She made sure that everyone was understanding what she was teaching and if some needed more explanation she would go over it in a different way so they can understand it. She also would ask individual students if they understand and she would do her best to explain everything clearly where everyone can follow along.
She offers extra help after class in TRIO student support area, she also talks about other places where students can go to receive extra help. She makes herself available for students to talk to her and will offer chances for students to excel on her tests.
Open to students during her office hours was very helpful.
Gretel Sia shows concern in fairness to her students. She is understanding and honest when it comes to her students. She goes through every step of each problem to show how to solve really difficultones.
Ms. Sia always showed concern for students success.
Gretel Sia shows concern for her students by offering her time to meet with students to help them better understand the assignments that are given.
She will ask if someone is doing alright in class and will ask what happened if you haven't turned in your homework.
She's always willing to help the students. She always keeps herself open, when she's not in class to assist students with math problems. She's awesome.
she answers any questions given, but not the way students expect.
26. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
A kind and caring teacher who tries her best for her students.
She is a great Math teacher and was very helpful all semester.
Genially a good person.
I really enjoyed having her as a teacher and I think she teaches in a way that is easy for me to follow and understand. The only thing that I think she needs to work on is when she assigns homework to make sure that she doesn't assign work that we haven't gone over in class because its hard to learn it based only off of the book.
she maybe cannot speak the clearest English, and takes a very convoluted path at getting to an answer but she will emphasize to the answer. she can sometimes be very confusing when talking about several different routes of getting to the answer, ones that we will never use and ultimately confuse us, but she will explain it until we do get it. Her practice of assigning homework on material that we have not learned yet is very annoying, and is probably her greatest downfall as a teacher.
Awesome teacher
She dose not explain good
Ms. Sia expects us to do well by understanding and if not encourages us to ask questions and come for study session.
Some people might not like have Professor Sia because she has an accent but I feel it's not so bad that you can't understand her.
she's an amazing instructor who knows her material.
she is awesome but if someone needs help, it would be better to get extra help with her outside of class.
27. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes. She is patient and tries to answer any questions students might have.
Yes, she knows the subject well and is a great teacher who truly cares about her students
Yes I would if you prefer to write down your notes because she doesn't have lecture notes already prepared.
Compared to other teachers; no. I think that she is relatively new and will grow and become a VERY GOOD teacher, she has a lot of passion and cares immensely about her students. I appreciate it and have learned from her course all the same.
Yeah I would recommend het to all students
No
Of course, i would tell them if they want to learn math with conceptual thinking than she is the one to take.
Yes, I would recommend Ms. Sia to other students because she cares about students success.
If you are good at math to begin with she is a good professor to have and I'd recommend her. If your slow to get math concepts then I would recommend a different professor that's known for making math concepts easy to understand.
I already have.
yes because she can teach and loves this subject and no because you might nit understand her or her teachings at at times.
28. Other comments:
Thank you Professor Sia!!!
Her way of saying certain words is hilarious
She is the bomb.com
winward comm. college should keep her on their staff.
No other comments
Though she's a new instructor and I normally don't opt for them. This was one of the BETTER personal choices I made. It was a great semester with her.
keep going strong!!!
