The way professor Kupferman teaches, he does not need at improvements.
Change nothing. This class is effective and beneficial in every way. Everything has a purpose and is never boring. If anything, have the class scheduled for two days per week instead of only one.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
He is a really good teacher, easy to talk to, and knows a lot about the course.
great teacher. would take another class from him.
he's okay.
David Kupferman is an EXCELLENT professor! He has so much knowledge in the field and knows exactly how to convey the important class messages to his students. The students are never bored in his class and I really appreciated his sense of organization. Nothing is ever unclear. If I had any questions, I felt comfortable asking him whatever came to mind. He is easygoing and approachable, yet he easily gains the respect of his class because he is knowledgeable in the area he is teaching. I would recommend this professor to anyone. He is one of the best professors I have had throughout my college experience.
He's a really good teacher, I'm sad this semester is ending because his class was my favorite. He makes learning fun and you can tell he really cares about his students. I wish he could teach another Education course because I'd definitely sign up!
