26. Other comments:
Wei has been very helpful throughout this semester. She truly seems to enjoy what she does, which makes it much easier to learn in her class because she always is enthusiastic during the class period. She also engages with the class by asking questions during lecture making sure that each individual has a good grasp on the material being presented. She gives us valuable feedback on the tests and has been open and available for any questions pertaining this class, the material, and even the tests.
I really enjoyed taking Professor Zhang's class. She had great lectures/discussions, we looked at multiple perspectives and reasons for social scenarios and she expleined everything very clearly so it was easy to focus in on key topics.
Very Knowledgeable teacher.
great course with a great instructor!
Professor Wei, has a strong passion for this course. I can see through her lecture and power points that she puts in a lot of her time in making the power points, retrieving data and making an agenda for our class. Lecture is never boring, she does her best to have us interact in the class. I don't expect my professors to prepare a study guide nor a study session in class and Pro. Wei did, she is a very understanding and caring professor. I would definitely recommend her.
Very enthusiastic and interesting instructor, tried to engage students with discussion questions. Was very accommodating of students regarding assignment expectations and deadlines. Course was very enjoyable and rewarding.
I really enjoyed this class and have never been able to remember material like i have in this class, i really enjoyed listening and learning from professor Wei Zhang :)
