22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Since there weren't that much students in class he was still honest to his students. He made time in class to reflect on what we previously did or learned.
Winston Kong have shown genuine respect for students for ever class time I have been and gave time for the students in my class to make sure that they fully understand our quiz,test,readings,homework and the quarter syllabus.
He takes the time to get to know us individually and helps us identify things we need to work on and offers constructive feedback. He has had a huge impact on me and has helped me get my confidence back...Every student just starting out in higher education would be lucky to be in one of his classes. He really made a very positive impact on me and how I view myself in relation to my ability to succeed in higher education. He is the real deal as far as teaching goes!!!
He helped every student that needed help, and helped us reach our goals
The way he works side by side with his students is a benefit to us all
He was always there for us.. If we needed to ask questions he would answer them for us to his best of abilities. He really showed me what college is really about.. i learned that you need to really focus and apply things that you learn to your everyday life..
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I liked how Winston Kong taught this course because he made it. It was pretty interesting because he knew what to say,and how to approach us.
What I really liked was to know I was not prepare well enough for College and to learn what I truly needed to know. Be HONEST with yourself and everyone, have long and short term goals, know where and how what College or University I can go to. Also to have diversity in your life be ready for changes, multicultural communication, sexism and stereotype and many more. My dislike of Winston Kong class none
He made it fun to be in class and showed us how the material was relevant to everything we'll be doing in our college careers and beyond. He is a exceptional teacher!
I liked the way he taught us what to expect in college, and how to succeed in college.
The class was easy to understand
I really liked how he is straight up about the course. Many of the things I learned in his class really benifited me for other courses.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I liked how he got us involved with the community as assignments.
GREAT TEACHER we need more of him.
I am so grateful that I enrolled in his class. He took me from not being sure I had what it takes to knowing that I am capable of excelling at anything as long as I put the work it. He made me believe that I was smart and talented when I had lost all confidence because of a lot of bad life choices. Because of him, I know I am capable of achieving whatever I decide to pursue! He truly made a difference in my life!
He is a very cool guy, teaches us in a way that we understand
Thanks for recommending this class
I would like to just thank him for all that he has done. I truely believe that Mr. Kong was a big help with both my schooling and life. He said things that really matter in life and I respect him for that.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
I would recommend Winston Kong to other students because he makes his work understandable. He makes us feel comfortable not only about our work but about ourselves. He teaches you how to come out of your shell and to become more sociable with others, and how to do better in school.
I have recommended Winston Kong To other students.
Yes, yes, yes, yes!!! Because he helped me find my confidence so that I now am comfortable dreaming big, because I believe I will achieve success in my education and beyond.
Yes, his class is very helpful. It teaches you many things that will help you in college, in your future careers, and in life
Yes
I would definitely recommend this class for students who need a little drive that can help boost their education. Mr. Kong will teach you some important things you need to know about college and everyday life...

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Winston showed his concern for students by going over the things we had trouble with understanding.
By talking to us with an understanding.
He seperated the students who were having a harder time compared to those who were excelling wuicker in his class and gave us more one on one attention so that we could catch up and better understand the units.And thats how he got "Uncle Winston"
Winston Kong shows confidence in his students to pass every exam and turn in any homework assignments. He motivates students to be open and to be familiar with everyone in the room to feel as if you are in your comfortable zone.here and now" was his most famous quote from the book to remind students to think and be in class mentally and physically.
Yes, because he says it and shows his concerns after class in order to not make a scene and is very considerate with his talks.
He gets to know us individually and talks with us
Winston always showed concern by making sure everything was alright with ourselfs and if someone in our class was absent, the next day when they came back we would be really concern about the situation and made sure everything was okay.
He made sure we did our work and if we didnt, he wouldgive us fair advice on what we should be doing.
He encouoraged us to do our hw, and went over quizzes in class
Winston Kong let the students read in each chapter lesson, he goes by row and let the student read each paragraph. Then ask questions what is the paragrap about.
Reminded myself and the other students when some thing is due.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I liked the way Winston taught the class by throwing in real life experiences.
He made it easy.
The way he used real-life and personal situations to connect us and the lessons being taught. I also enjoyed how he brought himself down to our level as students to help us.
I liked how Winston Kong taught his course in a friendly yet funny behavior. I liked how he would make the course fun and how he would give his students advice on what is to come in the college life and how to deal with it.
He has a great way of teaching the course. I just wish he had plans on when the tests were due and when the quizzes were due.
I liked the way he teaches its fun interesting and makes me want to learn more.
I enjoyed how he went over the chapter on tuesday then by thrusday we handed in our Quiz and then either on thrusday or the followin tuesday we would have our test. Not only that but he would actually give us hints on where to focus on more and i thought that was awesome espically because there were some elderly people who would always study the wrong thing.
I liked how he was very straight forward and that everything he talked about had meaning to it.
I liked that he had the students answer instead of just telling us stuff and lecturing us
The most I like is when he do a lecture and explain on the board the main idea about what we read in the chapter.
I liked working out of the text book / work book most of the time. I wish we got to go on the field trips to the other campuses
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I learned a lot of things from Winstons class. The one chapter I expecially enjoyed and had been meaningful to me is "Be Here Now!"
He's a good teacher.
Didn't like the strictness and structure of his class in the begining but the more classes we had and the more i took out of the units the more i found myself enjoying him and the class including the fact that i loved my class!
His motivation brings forth the best in our work on what has to be done. And his emphasis on ideas that need to be remembered is always taken seriously. Winston Kong is an outstanding teacher to have.
He has a good sense of humor and relates to most local students from this island showing that it is still Hawaii even though your in college.
He is a great teacher with Tom Doi there fun and make their subject interesting and its so helpful and it helps me to get to know me better and learn things about myself i never knew about!
Winston Kong is an awesome instructor and also an awesome counselor!!
He is a great teacher.
he was a good teacher
He's a great instructor and he have been helping me for my assignment, whenever I'm stuck with any of my homework especially our quizes.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes! I would recommend this class to other students because in my opinion, though I am attending college now, it was an honor learning from Winston.
Yes, but only to those who are just starting college or those who are in high school.
Yes its a class for students to who want to become master students while in windward and the context goes beyond just schooling.
Yes, I would recommend Winston Kong to other students because he is a great teacher to have. It has nothing to do with logic nor does it have to do with being literal. But he's straight to the point with what needs to be done in the course.
Yes, He is a productive teacher that excels for a master student with concerns and respect for all the students int he class.
Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! because i learned so much and i know they will to.
Sure I would recommend him to any and everybody!!
Yes, because he teaches u discipline and how to do right in school.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
pointing the students in the right direction, and showed students how to make college a little bit easier by teaching us some techniques of the trade. and also opened our eyes to the possibilities of our future.
Mr Kong is a very good teacher, hes very prepared and intresting to listend too. I enjoyed the class because he made it very easy to understand and be engaged in. the lessons were very practicle and useful. Mr kong talked about problems and solutions to our college and life experience. I liked the fact that he asked us thought provoking questions and complimented us when we shared our thoughts. the class helped me use my intellect and really made be wane to be a good college student. Because we talked about the book in class it made me pre read and study ahead of time. I hope to have Mr. Kong as a future teacher. thank you.
The instructor showed concern by spending quality time with individual students with thier needs of comprehending assignments and by exsplaining in details about our assignments.
he doesnt
At times I found it certain thing irrelevant. This class was all about transition, how we got there and where we intent to go. And some of us... do not have long term goals, maybe because of age or disability. We we still try. Yes, he does care.
He was always willing to talk to us and help us in any way he could.
not sure
He shows the interest in studies we do to be ready for the outside world out there. He always tell us do to our work in team outside of class. Our instructor is the best i would say because he is not only our teacher but also a friend to us. I would say that he is the first college teacher that is an insperation to me and my fellow trainees. He is a good teacher and also a good advisor i would want to have him teach in all or any of the college in Hawaii.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
made the environment comfortable, relax, and easy to learn
I especially liked the free flow of the class every one got a chance to talk in class and share there view points. there was a lot learned i also enjoyed the fact that the class lessons were not only intresting but there was alot of laughs. also the fact that the work that we needed to turn in was not graded criticlly. theres not much to say but that this teacher is a good teacher and there is alot to be learned from him. keep on doing what you do cause its the right way.
What i especially like the way he explain in a way that i can understand and comprehend the materials that we are going throught.
its a stupid course
the thing i disliked was that a lot of the things we learned were common since.
i didn't like how we just did everything out of the book it was boring. i think it would've been fun if we had activitied to do from the book not just read and do quiz and tests
nothing really
I like everything about this man and the way that he teach his class. I have nothing against my instructor.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
thank you for teaching me how to be here now. I'm a soldier suffering from TBI and PTSD my mind was always some where else.
mahalo Nui loa
That he is very intellegent,fair and he gives in details about the assignments.
unnessary course
He was very kind and a great teacher.
he's cool
I would want to say thank you Mr. Kong for sharing you knowlege to all of us.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Of course. This subject helps make college easier.
yes.
Yes i would recommend any student because he is a great teacher to me personally.
no because it sucked
Yes, because just to get the fell of college life.
i dont know... if the class was a little more exciting then i would but if it's boring like this one then no
its kind of boring
Yes, i would deffently recommend this instructor to all students.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He shows us that he wants us to good and make the best of our educatio for the future.
by answering the same questions over and over without complainign
The instructor has helped all of the student when they are having a hard time. The teacher has always helped the students that are not doing so well in his or hers class because it is really hard for them to understand somethings that the teacher is going over in class that day. I know that it can get really hard in the class that you are taking and I also think that you should always ask for help when you need it the most.I think that you should try your best in the class that you are taking so that the teacher knows that you are trying really hard in his or hers class.
Winston is a great teacher, he's actions in words and gestures show much in his personality. I've noticed that if a student is behind he would ask to talk to them one on one and offer a plan for improvement.
By him just teaching this class, has already shown me what a good concerned teacher he is. I will not only become a Master Collage Student,here at Windward Community Collage, But will use what I have learned, and apply it in everything I so for the rest of my life,
always giving us chances to earn exyra cridet.
As a returned student after being out for almost seven years I could have not imagined that I would feel at ease and comfortable with this instructor and counslor. He made all of his students in his class believe that they have the will and the courage to succeed in college. Even though you have been out of college for along time. He gave me as a student the motivation to move on as a college student. He made you feel like a person that in life and school there will always away to succeed.
He encouranged us to do our best,and he would make sure that we completed any assingment that he assigned us to do.He made sure that all the student understand his lectures,he is a very helpful person,and a good teacher.He treated all the student equally.But there are times he would look kind of upset if only the student are making noise and erritating, he would never yelled at us but calm.He would only tell us to be quiet and so on.
By taking all the time necessary to help the students understand material covered and answer questions at any time.
the instructor was very patient with one student in calss who ask questions all the time.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
i liked that he was very intrested in the subject and gave exmale to thing that were confusing.
he knows alot about the subject
I liked the way that the teacher has taugh the class because I haved learned alot from this teacher.
His course has increased my learning habits and skills. I like that he explains the meaning of each chapter and how it applies to we as students today.
I had especially liked his attitude towards the understanding of ours needs for higher education here on my istand. He communicates in a very calm manner making it so understandable to catch on to this wonderful, up rIising coursse in becoming a "master Collage Student.
i liked everything about the class!
There was not anything that I as a college student disliked. What I liked about this instructor He made me feel like a real person. Gave me the courage to remain in college till I reach my goal. And that made me feel very encouraged.
The most thing i like about our instructor is that he's very kind and especially helpful,and teaches us well.Perfectly understoodable all his lectures.Good example,every thing are all related to the course that he taught us,he clearly explains the goals,object, and overall purpose of the course.
His ease in helping all students at an their individual learning level. He relates well to a class with many different learning and understanding abilities.
i recommened this class to all students who need a refresher or are not sure what to expect in college
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I respect him as a teacher, and some who could listen and offer advice not as a student but as a friend.
I am so appreciated for have taken this course with him. I believe that it's teachers like Winston Kong that could make the difference in the education the the people of our island. Thank you so much for allowing him to teach this course. With the new skills i've just obtained, I feel like I am capable of reaching anything I set my mind out to get.
a very careing and good tercher!
There will be others that will come along through this class and He as an instructor, and a counslor will make that other person feel like someone who could be very important to themselves and others. I can say that because that is how I felt when I left his course. A better person!
Good attendance,but only abscent once,for certain good matters.
He is truly dedicated to towards bringing out the best college student in each and every one of his students. He is a great communicator
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes. because he teaches with a passion for students to do well, and make the most of their education
I have recommended his class and wish it was a course that every student out who has been out of school for a long time take it. It has helped me tremendously with my work. If not for Winston and this class I would have not got excellent grades on my mid-terms.
I most surley would! With the skills learned from this course, there is much assurity of reaching a collage degree
yes! because this class will help u for the rest of your like and help u to be a MASTER STUDENT!
Yes, I would and have recommended this instructor, and counslor to many. Why, As a student on hand with this instructor, and couslor He made me feel important as a person and a student at Windward Community College. Even though I felt many times that I could not make it after being away for almost seven years. He made me realize that if you try hard and focus on being someone in college you as a person will make it! And I now believe what he has being saying to the whole class is true.
no,he's completely and well suited in this job.
I would recommend him to any student that needs the learning tools he has to share. He makes learning fun and each student feel important.
