Learning new things
I liked that we worked through a lot of different problems during class. It made the take home tests a lot more manageable.
I enjoyed the course and the instructor a lot. Mrs. D made it fun!
What I liked the most was the amount of problems we did from the book that and the detail of the notes we took. It greatly helped when doing homework or take home tests
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Lectures could slow down just a little so that everyone can deposit the material easier.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Nothing too much because for me personally payroll was something hard for me to understand.
I like all the hands-on work, such as, doing all the Hawaii forms and federal forms. It was challenging but worth it. It made me more comfortable with the forms.
Although stressful the payroll project was fun.
I like the manual project because it gave us a realistic idea of what you do as a tax preparer. the project helped us understand the possibility of pursuing this kind of career as well as understanding the possible risk.
I love how Mrs.DeMarco goes over the problems in a way that really helps me to understand what I'm doing.
assignments and projects were really challenging.
I enjoyed the final manual payroll project.
I like how I could use this in real life. I shared with my dad/employer what Iʻm learning in class and he wants me to do it for the company. I told him that he was crazy because there are so much laws and paper works that I would have to go through. He did bring out the reality that I could be earning the money instead of paying someone else to do it. Payroll is a great thing to know because not everyone can do it. Iʻm glad I took this class. When my co-workers have questions, I am able to answer some of them. I need more practice tho. There are so much things to keep track of quarterly and annually.
I felt that the projects were a good learning experience, however, it was a bit much to juggle within my other classes. I also liked that the tests were spaced out with 2 chapters each test.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Less projects.
N/A
I wished we worked a little more on forms because i did struggle, but i knew that she did not have much time to go over everything so i understand completely.
None needed.
Not to overload students with 3 final projects. It tends to get stressful and confusing
Nope, keep doing what you do Mrs. D! It was a hard class but I had fun learning and how I can use it at the workplace.
The only suggestion that I have for this course is maybe have some projects in the beginning instead of cramming it all towards the end. Too much, brain is not happy. lol

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
awesome course
I liked the fact of doing my homework online with Connect.
I enjoyed learning from her every week. She explained each chapter great detail that was understandable.
I liked how each lesson was "to the point." Mrs. DeMarco gave what each chapter was about in a very brief summary and would do 2-3 examples. After that, she would spend the rest of class giving more examples related to studentʻs questions so that they would understand the answer.
Nothing particular!
I like that the assignments were online
I enjoyed being able to do my chapter tests online and was glad that my professor would allow our test date to be a work day in her class, working with other students and helping one another.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I would suggest that the request to check our work should be more times. We can check our work for the correct answer only "once". I feel that we should be able to check it at least twice. After we get it wrong the first time, we at least have the opportunity to try again and see if the second time we got it correct. But that's just me!
McGrawʻs Connect questions provides a jpeg link of any tables needed for their questions, but only when you are on the question itself. Perhaps placing a copy of all these tables under the Resource tab in Laulima will help future students who uses the online textbook.
NOPE!
Maybe have a tutor during class time

If there was another course she taught that I needed to take I would take her again.
This could be offered as an online course. I personally could not do any online course, but Mrs. DeMarcoʻs lesson plan may be compatible, if anyone is interested.
Have a great winter break!
Enjoyed this course, able to learn a lot of knowledge that can be used for my future career. The instructor was excellent, helpful and overall productive.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
It was a fun learning experience and also i tried my best to learn the homework and assignment.
Mrs.D is an awesome teacher. She explains things well and I really liked how she lets you know what your grade is.
make sure every student learn the lesson before she move on to the next lesson.
Mrs. DeMarcoʻs lectures and examples of each chapter gave me a better understanding of this course.
She was very knowledgeable about the course
Mrs. DeMarco is an excellent teacher. Her class is easy to understand the problems when explained.
appropriate amount of assignments and works
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Just have to explain the payroll and deduction more often
I did not like that we were only able to check our homework assignment once. It was great that we were able to do it twice but when we make the mistake more than twice we canʻt find out the answer and wonʻt be able to figure it out on our own and would need to ask for help and sometimes class was too busy to be able to ask questions. So just suggesting that maybe on the homework assignment students could be able to check their work more than once so we could figure out the answer correctly. Instead of never being able to get the correct answer therefore not able to understand how to solve the problem. Especially when your using so many different equations to solve different problems. You could in the final grade have the homework worth less points than the test but atleast the students could understand the work.
None
Make sure everyone understands before moving on..
She does not need any improvement to her course

we definitely need new tutors. they don't know what they are doing. it is a complete waste of time for people who really need the help and the right help is not given.
Good teacher

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Lectures and homework really help in doing well. Being attentive in class and coming to class on time is important. Falling behind is not an option.
Mrs DeMarco is a very good teacher.
I liked the assignments as it has given me knowledge of how the accounting process is about.
I like that I was able to get my questions answered without feeling like a burden or an interference to the class. The assignments did help me understand the course material but it was alot at times and I felt that I couldn't get it done. The practice set was a real challenge that I actually enjoyed doing. It really made me feel like I was a bookkeeper and that I had to make sense of all the material that I learned.
I liked doing my assignments on the Connect site it gives you feedback on computing your answers and having to do a project (practice set) lets you understand what you have learned about the accounting process.
The ONLY thing I liked about this professor was that she used CONNECT. I have worked with it before and it is one of the better ways to learn the subject.
an ability to see the errors made on the homework prior to the test so we could learn by it. The books needs clear examples as it relates to the homework vs small pieces. Mrs. D was was very helpful. Mahalo
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Maybe to make the lectures more fun and interesting because already, accounting can be overwhelming and a full load of work. So if thereʻs a way to make it more enjoyable to learn, I think people will have a more willingness and motivation to learn.
none
The only suggestion that I would say for Mrs. DeMarco would be to go over the topics a little slower. I know there is alot of information to cover but we move from topic to topic so quickly I have little time to process what we just went over.
The liked the course, but I think some of the chapter assignments were overwhelming because it took some time to complete.
I would love it if Prof. DeMarco was able to properly read the E-mails that I have sent to her and provide adequate feedback. DeMarco sends out email that are filled with improper information. The latest problem that I can say is the first accounting project, the email said it was due on Monday, April 15. When I E-mailed the assignment to her, she responded: "This isn't due till Wednesday, what do you want me to do with it?" I would like for you to grade my project instead of giving me sass.
15. Other comments:
Overall, Demarco is a good teacher and she is very helpful when you need that extra help. She is very knowledgable about the subject.
Thank you!
Mrs. DeMarco has thought me a lot about the accounting process that I thought I already knew..Mrs. DeMarco is a very organized and wonderful instructor and I am blessed to have her as my instructor.
Just the above recommendations.
Overall, I enjoyed this class and Mrs. DeMarco was very helpful and knowledgeable in this subject.
Mrs. D did an awesome. She is such a great teacher to have. As a matter of fact, I have her again next semester :)
Professor DeMarco is the reason why community colleges are looked down upon.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Everything I learn was greatly appreciated. It was great to learn the material in this class.
The instructor was well prepared and knowledgeable. She can answer any tax questions posed to her without blinking an eye.
Wow... information overload!! I didn't realise that taxes were so intricate and required so much knowledge. The semester-end projects are certainly all- encompassing.
Everything!!!
I like that Mrs. DeMarco is always willing to help her students throughout the day. She is an awesome teacher and I am greatful for being her student. Her example problems in class is extremely helpful in a class like this. I had a hard time understanding some parts of the class but Mrs. DeMarco is extremely helpful in helping her students to better understand. She often asked if we had trouble understanding and offered to go over the material again.
Mrs. DeMarco has been an excellent instructor. She has helped me not only understand her course but has helped explain some problems I had with another course as well. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
The assignments really helped me to understand how to do tax returns and calculate income. It was a really good thing to do.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Elect lawmakers that will simplify the tax code.
Hmmm... have prerequisites to taking the course - make the class a final semester class, not something students can take without business math or computer skills!
Chapter 6 was too much.
nothing. maybe more examples and extra credit.
15. Other comments:
Excellent teacher!! Highly intelligent and very personable! I have enjoyed every single class I've had with her and would recommend that the Accounting program expand to include more... just more!
Thank you Mrs. DeMarco for being and awesome professor.

I found that the class was really good at bringing together all of the information from the previous accounting classes.

I was first afraid about taking this class. I wasn't sure if I would be able to complete the SUA practice set. I was very pleased with myself, that I met all deadlines.
Everything!! She is the best the teacher ever...
I liked the practice set and pretending to be an actual worker for a business. it was fun and very informational.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
More coursework! Having discussed this with Marla, there are a couple of areas where information could/should be added to continually improve the course to prepare accounting students for the real world.
Keep up the good work.
Instead of extra projects, a field trip to an accounting firms office, or to a business using accounting techniques we've learned. It would simplify the presentations at the end of the course.
nothing.
15. Other comments:
Marla's an excellent teacher! She's always got an open door, a desire to assist anyone anytime, and a great deal of insight into people... a genuinely wonderful person! I feel she's a HUGE asset to the college and students alike.
I like when you help and give feedback even when it's not for your class.
Mrs. DeMarco does very well at what she does as a teacher. Very professional!I am very pleased with her teaching, and would recommend ALL students coming into college and taking Accounting 120 to take Mrs. DeMarco. If you don't learn the basics, you will struggle in the rest of your Accounting class. Thank you Mrs. DeMarco, I am sure going to miss seeing you in class. Keep up the good work! Aloha.
thanks for a great class and semester.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Mrs. DeMarco takes the time to help each of her students with any problems they have understanding the course materials. Her in-class examples help students get through the class. The examples help out when completing homework at home. Although many students do not like that we only have one time to check on Mcgraw hill, I think it is a challenge that we can be proud of when completing the course.
This course was an encourged me became of knowedgeable of new world (new experienced of accounting before I never known), and she gave us an assighnment and it was really helped to me to challenged myself to reach to higher goal for the future!
Almost all the things about the course was great, especially the assignments and practice tests were helpful for me to understanding the basic of accounting.
Most of the assignments were on-line so you got immediate feedback on your grade.
I like the way you teach. You really help me in this course
I liked the project we did this semester. Although, it was a bit challenging but I was able to put it to practice the concepts we have been learning this semester. Assignments have helped me in understanding more about the chapters. I liked the fact that I could do practice test as many as I wanted to prior to taking the actual test. Thank you for having us this tool.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
More practice and real world accounting method would be helpful to improve this lecture
15. Other comments:
Thank you Mrs. DeMarco. I appreciate all that you do for us as your students. Keep up your awesome performance.
Overall, it was very informative course.
I am very grateful to have Mrs. Marla DeMarco as my ACC 201 instructor this semester. She is an expect in what she is teaching and she knows exactly what she is doing. When I got stuck or confused or may have hard time expressing myself due to complex problems, she made them so plain and easy to understand. She is direct to the point and utilizes her time efficiently with the class. Mrs. DeMarco is very prompt in getting back with the students. Students' success is her top priority. I would recommend Mrs. Marla DeMarco to anyone who is anticipating in taking any of her classes. Two thumb ups to Mrs. DeMarco! Way to go Mrs. D! May I please make a request? Would please consider Mrs. DeMarco teach ACC 202 next semester? Mahalo.
Very happy with having such an efficient professor as I embark on this challenge of taking on Accounting.

Very good job! It was just the right amount of challenge for me!
One of the things I like about Mrs. DeMarco is that she is always ready to answer questions any student in her class may have. Her answers are direct and very helpful. She is an expert in what she's doing and she's committed in helping students meet their goals. Thank you Mrs D.
I liked to cog hill project. some of the chapters was kind of hard and i didnʻt understand until we started to do the problems in class.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I have no suggestions
15. Other comments:
This was a great class and maybe next time she should tell everyone to make friends with their classmates and get their numbers. Get eachothers numbers in case we need extra help, also to get the tutors contact numbers will be very helpful.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I think putting what we learned and using it in a large scale project was necessary and helpful. Course was nicely organized, laid out, and we stayed on track (no surprise changes) Instructor lectured on all relevent information.
This is a useful course and Mrs. Marla DeMarco very well prepare. She is a good instructor.
I liked the payroll project even though it was very time consuming and i could only do it in class because i didnʻt have a reliable computer connection.Everyone in the class was very nice and everyone got along well.
I enjoy doing payroll worksheets. The payroll project provide an enhancement to what the payroll taxes is all about. I learn how to do payroll exercises using the spreadsheets and the software.
I felt this course was very helpful, I got a better insight of how the process of payroll is really like. Thank you Mrs. D for all of your help.
I liked the way she was available to help online and if you needed to, she could help you in person as well on campus.
I liked the projects even though i might not have done a great job on them.
It was very informative
You are a great teacher, But I find doing online classes difficult. It's much easier for me to learn in the classroom rather than online.
I like the fact that if we needed extra help or could not figure it out she was willing to let us come into the class room.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Nothing
Nothing to improve.
none.
Mrs. D, doesnʻt need any help or improvements she is the bomb when it comes to any type of accounting work. I have gain a lot of knowledge from all of my classes that I have taken with her.
None
none
All of the homework was set to one time limit while the final for the payroll was three weeks long. It kind of made it easy to procrastinate.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
This course was one of my favorite business classes during any semester since attending HCC. The homework and tests definitely tested the knowledge we obtained through Ms. DeMarco's teaching.
The work was always explained very well. If we had questions she would always try to help us resolve it.
Easy to learn as long as I come to class. Refresh memory on math.
Mrs D, was very thorough. I really learned a lot from her. And whenever I was stuck or needed better understanding of the material, she would explain it so I could finish my work.
Learning the material took some thought to how to figure out the problems, but over all it was an experience.
Organized and realistic.
I liked that we did our work and tests on the computer and had immediate results so we could work on what we needed to work on on our own time.
I enjoyed learning all of the different types of math things that i will need to know how to do, these math things are related to my major and hopefully my career that i am shooting for in the real world.
Learned a lot! I feel more confident now in math after this course.
i like that we had it online

Thank you! See you next semester!
I have learned and that's the main point of going to college and I thank Mrs. DeMarco for helping me learn the material. She is a great instructor.
Great teacher, really belped me with math!
I am really glad that Mrs. DeMarco was my teacher. She gives a detailed syllabus in the beginning of the semester and it really helps to keep me on schedule with what we will be learning the next class and for the rest of the semester.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I loved the cogg hill practice set:)
The course was very challenging for me as I had taken ACC 20 in 2007. Although, it was not as easy as I remember ACC 20 to be, Mrs. DeMarco was very encouraging and that motivated me to continue through the course. The online homework and take home quizzes gave me the opportunity to really learn the material. The class lectures were very fast-paced, but appropriate for the amount of information that needed to be covered.
I liked them all, it was vary effective.
Found the Cogg-Hill practice set to be very useful and helped with understanding all we learn, to be able to do everything we learned.
Although the assignments were at times challenging, they tested my knowledge of the course. It helped me to see if I really understood what I was learning.
Mrs. DeMarco was clear on instructions and her demonstration on how to do the work.

Mrs. DeMarco was a great support for me. She was always willing and ready to assist with my questions. Not being an accounting major, I felt that struggled a bit through the course, but it was a great experience and I was able to learn so much in such a short period of time.
love your class. also like all the examples put on the board, helps with homework etc.
It was very nice and helpful to have tutors available in the classroom.
I will recommend her to others! I can't wait to have her again in my next semester!
Ms. DeMarco has, once again, proven that sheʻs an excellent instructor... making accounting enjoyable and yet challenging to learn! I always enjoy her classes and style of teaching!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The teacher was great and very knowledgeable. From what I learned in class I was confident to do my own taxes.
I love all the sample tax returns we had to do. It really helped me to understand most of what was being explained in the textbook and it was fun preparing them and pretending they were actual clients in real life situations.
The extensive amount of information I did not know about taxes. Confidence in getting them completed.
Mrs. DeMarco was very helpful with all my questions and concerns that I had. Thank you Mrs. D:)
Assignments were challenging and it helped me to better understand why things are being done. I liked that we needed to do these projects.
The due dates for the assignments were crazy because the assignment was issued sometimes late or on the due date which gave me no time to complete them on time.
The Action steps is what got me slowing down on my work, just doing a planning how u going approach, and u want your business to have that support in money, and employees. Learned alot!
I liked having overviews of each chapter provided prior to the chapter reading and problems being assigned. In the online class, this written information provided by Ms. DeMarco helped me understand the chapter material as well as attending a lecture.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
No improvement doing a great job!
I think there should be like a tutorial for the TaxAct program to cover where we input the information. It was kind of fuzzy in the beginning but after preparing a few returns you get the hang of where to put things.
Nope.
None whats so ever
give more time for homework assignments or give them out a week ahead of time
No not at all just more time.

I would recommend this class to anyone interested in taxation.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Mrs. Demarco is one of the very best teachers that i have ever had she really wants you to understand what you are learning
SUA Practice Set. Presentation. Quickbooks work.
It was fun and yet stressing, time frame is to short.
I like the way Mrs. DeMarco is willing to help everyone with whatever problem they are having for homework and projects. She is very understanding.
All of the activities were a reminder of what I learned for the past 2 years. It was good to recall how to do things and yet learn some things that I had not encountered. They were challenging and great fun!
This class was very interesting, assignments were very thorough and informative.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I would suggest that for the final project instead of just interviewing a company and writing a report on it that student be required to volunteer or intern at a company for hands-on experience then report on that.
Nope.
None
15. Other comments:
It was a good class.
I really enjoyed the class.
Mrs D is a very good teacher, she explains everything so simple.
What can I say? This instructor surpasses my expectations. Through the course of my education then now the last of my accounting classes, she may be tough but that's the only way to learn. She is always there if I needed help on understanding my classes. Can't tell how grateful I am to have had the privilege to learn from her. My hats off to this wonderful instructor!!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked the homework assignments how I could do them on line and it allowed me to correct my work once before submitting to get graded. I thought this was a great tool. I really liked the hands on works sheets in class for testing and I did wish we could have done more of those in class.
The teacher was always well prepared. She knew all the the information and also answered all the students questions with ease.
I enjoyed the overall material of this class. Assignments were relevant to the course/chapters being learned. The practice set was both fun and challenging! :)
I liked everything. I can say I am way more knowledgeable about accounting now and confident to do balances much more correctly.
I liked the homework and the Mini Practice set. If i needed any help i could always ask Mrs. Demarco or there would always be a tutor in class to ask.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I would sugguest having more writing worksheets in class I think personally that is how I was able to learn better.
The online program has the boxes in the right place already lit up. You don't have to know if the amounts are entered on the left side or the right side. This makes it harder to do the tests, since you really don't have to know the information when you do the tests online.
The course itself was very well put together, however I found it a little difficult at times to switch between the McGraw Hill Connect site for homework to paper based exams.
No- You are doing great.
None that i can think of.
15. Other comments:
I really enjoyed Mrs. DeMarcoʻs class! I would defintly like to take more of her classes in the future if I continue my education.
Great class, very informative!
Thank you Ms DeMarco for all your time and effort you put in this class and in myself. I will probably see you next semester for another class. Thanks again for my letter of recommendation also. I will be awarded next Thursday, May 3 at the recognition ceremony. Mahalo once more and have a great summer.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked doing the homework lessons (assignments) online. You have the option to submit it or work the problems till you get it correct.
Materials presented brought a deeper understanding of business, how it operates, and why in our country and internationally.
That i learned how to handle money and accounts.
I liked that she went over some problems that we were gonna see in our homework assignments and taught us how to execute them properly. Also, I like how she went at a pace that was good for everyone.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
No.
The tests had no direct examples in the book. Questions were asked that needed to be analyzed using concepts we learned in the chapter. But the questions could have been written by a lawyer because the use of language was very confusing. (double-negatives throw me off)
The textbook and the quizzes seem to have been written by two different people. The quiz questions often focus on items barely touched in the chapter materials.
Since there is so much homework that is time consuming, there should be more one on one help to understand the material better.
Nope, it was great.
15. Other comments:
Mrs. DeMarco always made herself available. Pleasant and a great teacher. Great job.
I count myself as very lucky to have taken this class with Marla DeMarco as the instructor. She consistently applies the subjects in the text into real-life situations. Her techniques bring a depth of understanding of the material that the textbook authors fail to do.

I absolutely hate Cengage Brain. It takes too long, and does nothing. It was unworkable on my laptop, and it crashed my system many times. It asks you a question, then asks you if know the answer, then it re-asks the question, and the answers available are unreadable. You have to write your answers on a separate sheet of paper and reenter them for every question. It is frustrating and very off putting.
I always enjoy having Mrs. DeMarco as my professor. She's a wonderful mentor.
Great teacher!
Mrs. DeMarco help me when I had questions:)

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
online homeworks
I liked how we had assignments on the computer.
This course helped me with some ACC 20 assignments.
I wish I was in class more often but was really side tracted by my cancer situation mentally and physically. I thank god for my instructor's for their teachings and giving me time to turn in missing assignments. Terrific job!=) Misty Pereira
I thought that she was a very disagreeable professor who was unwilling to listen to anyone during class who had a question as it might interrupt her precise schedule. She went at a much too fast pace for the students in the class to understand what she was teaching. I would never take another one of her classes
encouraging words about the way I write
The online homework gave better understanding to the chapter we were on. The textbook was also very understandable and fun to learn from.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?

No, it was great.
No.
Less research

Excellent professor!
Taking this course before or at the same time as ACC 20 will help!
thanks for your time in teaching

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The volunteer work was good experience.
As for this course i liked it, but I'll probably never become an income tax preparer. At least i got to understand taxes a little better.
I know nothing about taxes and this class mad it very clear!
Since tax law are established by politicians, not accountants, there is a significant lack of logic. Marla DeMarco has a way of presenting confusing material clearly and in such a way as to make it memorable. She has thorough knowledge of the material through her own practical experience in tax accounting. She is an excellent instuctor.
What I liked about this course was how Mrs. DeMarco created her own tax returns, that were examples of real life situations, for us to complete.
Although this course was difficult for me, Mrs DeMarco was always available with assistance. My only regret, I should of asked for help more often. The subject is very difficult with laws always changing.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
no need
nothing! great class
After the student's tax returns are processed and graded. She should go over the tax return in detail, so we know exactly were we did wrong.
No.
I feel that this course is fantastic just the way it is.
None

DeMarco is the best teacher, she explains to you and to everyone like its there first time for everything. You just have to be on it, take alot of notes.
nothing sorry you are a great teacher!

i thought the community service was helpful. it gave me a hands on experience.
I really enjoyed the course, it was fun. alot of homework.
What I enjoyed about this course was how every assignment I completed I could use in my own life.
I really enjoyed putting my portfolio together for this class. I've never had anything like that before. Today, I have a portfolio that has everything I need to submit with my job applications or present to employers. I've also heard that this class will not be offered anymore. That's a bummer. I learned alot from this course. :(
I really got a lot out this class, especially the volunteer part of this course and I am so glad i chose this course during this semester. Mrs. D is top-notch.

Previously failing an accounting course, I was nervous about taking another class. However, Mrs. Demarco had made the course easy to understand, and was easily approachable when I needed help or had questions.
that she gives us a syllabus that tells me when the work is due. so we can just do the work. for ex. when i know there's gonnna be a project or something i can just finish the homework and not worry about it. that way i have more free time to do my project.
homework was very helpful!
It was hard but I got it..
I liked how organized and methodical Marla's technique was for presenting these normally difficult to learn concepts. The book was excellent and clear and the assignments were appropriately challenging.
I loved how Mrs. DeMarco taught this class. She made it very interesting.

Mrs. DeMarco Rocks!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
DeMarco is a very EXCELLENT INSTRUCTOR!! She explains everyting to the tee, she makes you understand and makes sure you comprehend what she is talking about. I wish all my instructors was like her!!
Although it was very time consuming I did enjoy doing the practice set. It helped me to comprehend the course material much more.
I liked the take home tests, they reduced test taking anxiety
I thought this was a good class to take, and I did learn from this. Mrs. Demarco does a good job at teaching this class, and she is very well organized, prepared, and there was never a time she made me feel that she didn't know what she was lecturing to us about. The only negative thing I can say about this class, besides she did tell us that it is a fast pacing class. I did feel at times overwhelmed, especially towards the end, because I felt I didn't absorbed the information as well as I would like to have. Overall, Great Job! Mrs. DeMarco. I would recommend you to any student who goes into accounting.
I liked that the expectations were clear, Mrs. DeMarco was consistent in her methods and the course followed an easily understandable pattern
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Nothing, she does it excellent.
I'm not sure but it was a really quick paced class.
None. Mrs. DeMarco is an excellent teacher. She explains things very well so that everyone can understand her. She is very helpful with any problems I come across.
15. Other comments:
DeMarco is the BOMB! Very knowledgable person.
I love Mrs. DeMarco. I think she's a fantastic teacher.

This course was an intresting experience, i enjoyed doing hands on accounting work, and i like how it summarized the first half of the accounting classes.
Doing depreciation as a topic, because you just don't really learn to much on those type of things.
I learned so much from the voluneteer project assigned. I felt so good to give where there is a need. The personal portfolio assignment is so helpful, I'll be able to use it in the futute.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?

Mrs. DeMarco is an Awesome teacher, she is the one teacher i have learned the most from other teacher. Her teaching methods are excellent for those that like those detailed explanation and even if you dont understand she is willing to keep working with you until you do.
Ms. DeMarco is a fabulous instructor. I wish there were more of her in the accounting courses. She teaches what you need to know according to the course book and keeps me motivated. When I'm in her class, because I know I'm learning something, I just want to learn more.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Every thing was great, how she tough the class and what I learned with her helped me understand every thing I need to know about accounitng.
the tex book explaned how to do the work very well
Homework, help made the quizes easier
i really enjoyed this class it motivated me to possibly becoming a accounting major.
Honestly this isnt my favorite subject to begin with. I had a very hard time in this class. In the beginning I was doing great with homework, then I kind of fell behind. So I cant really say I enjoyed this class, only because of my personal dislike of the subject.
The manner in which the instructor presented the information was excellent.
Mrs. DeMarco did quite a few assignments with the class and that was very helpful.
Mrs. DeMarco uses a variety of techniques to prepare students for their test. The ways she presents information helps a student to understand "why" procedures are done so students can begin to hard wire this information in. The practice set is a tough assignment but emcompasses everything Mrs. DeMarco has been teaching students during the semester and the set will be a good study tool during the break to prep for next semester.
i liked when ms. demarco would bring in worksheets for us to do together. those are the times that i would understand the material the most.
I like that I learn a lot of things in this course and that it is useful in what I am planning to do in the future. This course has helped me a lot not with just the homework, but with all the lectures and the examples Mrs. DeMarco does. I am happy that I took this course because now I know how to do accounting and it will help a lot in the future.
Everything was planned out & on schedule.
I liked the activites and assignments. They were fun to do.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
None
we moved through the course from chapter to chapter to quickly just as i was able to get the suject we began a new one...class should be longer at least 2HR
none
none
The think I noticed was the test were slightly different from the work given. I think it may have just been the wording. Thats what made things hard for me to take the test. Maybe if the tests would be closer related to the in class material would be great.
Nothing.
Needs more time.
maybe to make sure that everyone understood before moving on. do more work together instead of just lecturing.
None.
15. Other comments:
I hope in the future she can be my accounting teacher.

mrs. DeMarco is a great instructor!!
Marla DeMarco is an excellent teacher. She presents the material in a clear, concise manner. We look forward to attending her classes.
I like Mrs. DeMarco's approach to teach students. She does not assume students know accounting. She provides a strong learning foundation. We are fortunate to have Mrs. DeMarco as an instructure in this challenging major. Thank you.
Use different textbook, this one had too many typos/mistakes.

I love math so I loved this class. She helped with understanding everything clearly and made it so that I was able to do my work without any trouble.
She made it easy for me to retain the information.
I like Mrs. DeMarco's teaching style. She gave examples that parallel with the homework assignment questions and throughly prpares students for each test.
I liked the way she teaches all of her classes. She explains everything so that we understand it better than what the book showed us.
That it was only the EVENS! And no final!!! Reduced my stress level and white hair count for the semester!
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
N/A
I would like to suggest that, if we could have gotten our homework back, prior to taking the test. I feel this would have helped the students to see what their errors were in their homework and could do a better job on the test.
None.
I did not like the 5% deduction on assignments. If you do the work and do it correct, you should be fully credited for it. I understand that in a job, you can be calling in sick or missing work. I am sure this is her reasoning. Anyhow, Mrs Demarco is an excellent teacher. She goes over and beyond helping the students grasp difficult concepts. She cares about the students and the learning. She knows her stuff too! Good job!

It was fun and the applications are practical in everyday life
I struggle with math and appreciate Mrs. DeMarcho's approach to teaching math. She knows her topic well and provides clear examples and explanations. She is a wonderful instructure.
Overall, Mrs. DeMarco does a great job in teaching.
Having a take home test was great! I was able to sort out all my logical thinking and orginize the many calculations dealing with mathematics. For the cheaters out there.....they can only cheat themselves out of knowledge!

19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
Nothing, I thought Ms. Demarco taught this course very well.
Eliminate the cogg hill practice set; the material itself is alot to learn.
There is nothing to improve. This class is taught well. There is nothing to change.
I would not change nothing. Everything in this class pushes you to do better and concentrate.
It didn't need any improvements.
i thought that the text book was not well explained in certain areas. Open text book or open notes could have been a bit more helpful in this course.
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
I like her teaching methods. She always taught us well and prepared us well for upcoming tests.
She is the absolute BEST!!!
Marla DeMarco has good teaching methods. She explains well.
Mrs. DeMarco is a very good teacher. She is very thorough with her work and answers questions very quickly. She is fair and understanding! Overall Mrs. DeMarco is an excellent teacher.
Ms. Demarco is very knowledgeable and her teaching lectures are truly helpful.
I think her teaching methods are excellent, I love the way she goes step by step through problems so we as students can clearly understand.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
Absolutely. I've learned many skills that will be a great help to me in the future.
She has tought me alot... and I plan on taking more accounting classes from her in the near future.
Yes,she has.
General knowledge no not really but she made me stronger in the skills that I have already obtained. She also has helped me to maintain and be more organized.
She contributed all the knowledge I know.
Yes!
22. Other comments:
Thanks Ms. Demarco for being such a great teacher.
I feel that Mrs. DeMarco, is perfect for the job! her teaching methods are right on the money. I really hope to see her teaching more accounting classes in the near future. I am retaking this class for the second time and I knew that it just wasn't me not learning "it was the professor not teaching". This semester I have learned and excelled tramendously.
Mrs. DeMarco is an excellent instructor...... :) She takes the time to help a student if they are struggling.

19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
Would talk more on structure of the equations used in tax and go over others more than others..
I would explain the confusing things more clearly and make sure everyone got the point. It seems like if you don't get one point, then it is really hard to understand the rest. Also, I would explain what information goes where in the Tax Act program.
nothing
Maybe have more practice on chapter problems. Some concepts can be difficult.
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
Some of the things were really confusing and hard to understand.
great!
I firmly believe that Mrs. DeMarco is a teacher of the highest caliber, and she is by far my favorite teacher.
I felt she was a great teacher. She supplied us with overviews of the chapters and answered any questions we have on the chapter concepts.
Marla DeMarco is very knowledgable in this subject matter. She was able to answer questions quickly and to a point that I could understand.
Mrs. DeMarco is the perfect instructor...she is always prepared and willing to help you even on the weekends through email. She always responds immediately to her emails.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
Tes, very much so.
Yes!
Definitely
Yes. I plan to get a degree in accounting so I will be able to help others do taxes. This course showed me that there is a lot to learn about this topic. Yet I did learn a great deal and hope to push myself further with this goal.
Very much so
22. Other comments:
Mrs. DeMarco is always prepared for class. She always takes the time to explain things in a way that is very clear, concise, and friendly.
I love everything about Mrs. DeMarco!

A+
Her teaching methods are good
Mrs. DeMarco is an outstanding teacher. She is always well prepared and always encourages her students to press on, no matter how hard the subject matter is or what the student may be going through emotionally at that time.
Mrs. DeMarco's teaching method is the very best. It's the best this college has to offer, and generally speaking. She is also very compassionate and fair.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
yes!
She improved my knowledge in accounting
Yes, she has. This was a class where we had to go out and volunteer at a non-profit organization. It was a great experience and Mrs. DeMarco was always there to encourage me. I am legally deaf so it was not very easy for me to just go out and work, but through her encouragement I made it.
yes
22. Other comments:
none at this time.
I have had Mrs. DeMarco for several of my classes throughout my years at HCC, and have always found her to be really knowledgable in what she teaches. She has always been willing to help her students in succeeding and understanding the course work.

a. nothing more, I beleive that the course was well-planned and structured in a way that was easy to understand. b. same.
I really don't have anything to better improve the class, or would like to change. The only thing I felt was disturbing that distracted me at times would be the other students in the class, that wasn't taking that course at the time. It is hard to concentrate, when you have other people talking.
I wouldn't change anything about this course it is fine the way it is
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
I think that her teaching Method is greatly done!
I think that Mrs. DeMarco did a great job.

awesome teaching method, not confusing at all.
Marlo DeMarco is an excellent teacher. Her techniques make you interested in the class but I think that more class exercises would have benefited the students more.
Overall, I think Mrs. Demarco did a good job at teaching this course. I believe through her teaching, she made me understand the course and that is why I believe I am doing well in her class.
It was very helpful for me to, attend class to understand the text and material more easily. I feel she helped me to get understand better.
I really enjoyed mrs.Demarco this semester she is really paitent and understanding and is always there to help, with homework or any other assignment she likes to go over things if we still need help and she takes the time to make sure we understand the lessons
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?

Yes, Mrs. DeMarco has contributed to both my general knowledge and learning of job skills. I've learned a lot.
Yes.
