There's nothing that can be done for the subject area. It isn't as interesting to other students but we can't help that. Mr. Takahashi is an excellent instructor for this course.
none!
explain the procedure before making the students do the work
Just go a little slower and explain things a little more clearly.
None.
Better distribution of students in groups, ie try not to group all people with cashiering experience together and people with no experience together.
May having a little more practices with each computations.
He tends to ramble and lose track of his train of thought. His stories of his personal experiences are of great importance in relating the material to the students; however, he is easily distracted and therefore, he loses track of this thoughts and begins to divert from his subject topic.
Nothing Mr.T is a great teacher.

good
He would grade our papers promptly and email back when he could.

Easy to contact through email
He would give us grade checks to know where our grades stand.
