8. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Very informative.
I don't think this is specific to the instructor, but this course has WAY TOO MUCH material in it. I don't see how anybody could possibly come out of this course remembering more than a few random pieces of information due to the fact that there is so much we're cramming into our brains in a short period of time. That's not how true learning happens.
She taught this course very thoroughly and teachable.
It was a very blanket course, I found it hard to really focus on any particular part. Overall however it was informative and fun.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
her major strengths as a teacher is helpful
Really knows the subject area and can relate to students making it easier to learn.
She was very knowledgeable and truly concerned with all the students in their careers.
She never hesitated when asked for assistance in a subject or problem, and she was very knowledgeable in all areas of the subject.
She's very positive, and helpful when we have questions.
knows her amth, friendly, and explains well.
She knows math very well and gives one to one help if asked
Everything, She is a wonderfull instructor and knows her stuff!
She knows what she is teaching. Learns how to teach from every class she teaches
-clear communicator -great teaching skills -cares about every student -pushes us to do better
She was clear and concise. She almost seems to be over qualified if that is possible. The woman is just flat out brilliant! Due to her extensive knowledge, she made the learing seem easy and fun, while still challenging. I have grown to love math once again because of the superb attitude and direction provided by Mrs. Davis. I only wish I could take her for all my math classes!
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none
To be honest, sometimes she wears too much perfume. It's a little distracting because I am more sensitive to smells than others so it makes me a little nauseated.
None
none
It's nice to have students work problems out on the board. It gives us a chance to ask questions, because we're moving at a slower pace.
none
None
I got nothing to complain about
Teach more classes!!!...lol
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she show concern for students by care
Helps students when they come across trouble. Stays after the class period ended to let students do catch up work.
She spoke with everyone as a group and took time with individuals as needed every day with total consistancy.
She treated everyone fairly and was always available to help
She was available an hour before class, and an hour or more after class to answer questions and provide assistance. She spent a lot of time with students one on one...
she asked if we needed help
She would call us up for grade updates and tell us if we needed to improve our work.
She took the time to explain every on a one on one bases with each stundent as it was needed.
-pushing us to do better -talking to us to how can we improve our grades
She seemed to care for students personally, not just in math. She made me feel that my success was important to her not just as a teacher, but as a colleague and friend. She provided help when needed, and gave direction and inspiration when students were frustrated. She taught us to independent thinkers and not always rely on a bail out from the instructor. I believe this has given everyone confidence in moving forward.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
none
Yes she is an great teacher and person. She gives good examples on the board that goes with the homework.
Yes! She was very very thourough and knew much more than this basic math which made it nice to know you could ask her abopve and beyond this subject.
Yes. Because I not only learned alot, I also became an A student.
Yes! She taught her class with a positive attitude which is very helpful if and when the class becomes frustrating.
yes, she helps
Yes!!!!! She does not waste any time and she is a very kind and relaxed instructor.
Yes, even though I didn't need much help on the subject she was always there for when I did need help even through email.
-yes, good teacher, interactive with students, easy to talk to
Absolutely! For the reasons why, just read the above statements. The woman is a peach! She makes math and the learning of said class fun and gratifying!
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
she's a good math teacher
She continuesly encouraged students to push themselves and strive for bigger and better things in life, not just how to cross multiply etc.
Keep her
She is a terrific teacher, highly recommended : )
shes good
You ROCK. lol
She is very intelligent and can be helpful as long as you communicate with her.
Good teacher wish I had more like her.
Not sure what else is left to be said! She is a joy. I only wish there were more "just" like her. Had I had her as a teacher in High school, I may not have waited so long to go to college! She is a true asset to her proffession and an inspiration to students. She makes me believe that anything is achieveable through persistence and hard work.
18. Other comments:
nice to be in your class this summer
I wish I could keep her for the rest of my math courses!!

She should get a raise
Thank you Mrs. Davis for all your time and consideration during this course. Oh, and lets not forget your inexhaustable patience! You have made my re-entry into College life a pleasant one! Many Mahalos, Doug White

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She works closely with students. When any student is in need of assistance, Mrs. Davis is always available.
Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, accessible, easy to talk to, responded to emails promptly.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Ms. Davis was great as an instructor. What needs to change is the self-taught math courses. 99% of the time whether on the KCC computers or my home computer, the videos did not play. I really needed to be able to watch those videos since I learn better if an instructor were actually teaching on a dry erase/chalk board. The questions that I answered neutral to above, I did so because they did not apply in these self-taught math courses.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
If any student shows any trouble in course subject, she will work one on one with the student.
She was accessible to students and stressed to us to be ahead in the modules, not to fall behind. Again, we did not have that much interaction with her because the course is self-taught. I'd only interact with her when I had a question to ask.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, she is a teacher who knows how to work well with students with the Course Compass program for Math 24.
Yes, for all the reasons stated in question #13
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is a wonderful teacher who strives to help her students through computer lab learning
Great teacher! Knowledgeable, helpful. I just wish that I had her as my instructor in a course in which she actually was able to teach me.

Bebi is a good instructor and her teaching skills are really good.
The way she teaches is very compatible with the class, since it involves heavy reading and memorization. Organized, well prepared, and prompt.
great course
class went at a nice easy understanding pace for me teacher was open to questions being asked
I enjoyed Mrs. Davis's class. I found it better to take test when the study guides were condenced,instead of having 200 questions to study. Over all she is a great teacher
Mrs. Davis is a wonderful professor and her lesson plans are very flexible.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Very good with working you through a math problem, step by step
really wanted us to finish the course
She was very nice, and i fely like she wanted me to do well.
Very Active. Encouraging. Very well organized.
To whom it may concern, Instructor Bebi Davis perform her daily task in a professional manner. She is well prepared and fair with all her students. She also go above and beyond as far as relaying personal problems with her students to accomodate a solution to whatever problem a student have. SHE IS AWESOM!!! A BIG STAR GOES TO INSTRUCTOR Davis, Bebi,
she has so many teacher assistants whenever we need help on a problem we have different people to help us with different teaching strategies.
She is very approachable and friendly. She made coming to class fun and interesting. The class is very self directed, but she really stays on top of everyone to make sure they stay on task.Sh
she is very nice and helps students out with problems so we understand how the problem should be solved.
She checks in on all students so it's easier to come to her for help and with questions. She really cares about her students success.
Her encouragement and enthusiasm were strengths that I found the most helpful during this course.
SHe was very helpful when I had trouble with problems. I enjoyed being a part of her class, she was a great instructor
She has a sense of humor and understands that math is difficult for alot of people.
Best teacher i had so far this includes some of the teachers i had from k-12. She explained the course material with an understanding to someone like me who has next to nothing on understanding algebra 1. She returned all my emails from mymath lab the very next morning and let me tell you they were a ton of emails and she return every single email the very next morning. I strongly encourage you keep her here at the lower math level 24,25 because she explains the material to you (someone with very little math skills)were someone like me can understand very good instructor. Also her assistant John was also very helpful. I remember 1 class i could not figure out a problem and class was over for the night,he wrote the problem down and the very next class soon as i walked in he called me over and showed me step by step on how to calculate the problem i had trouble with and went over it with me twice untill i understood it.....this class and both of the instructors was....a 10+....
My professor Mrs. Davis was an excellent instructor. She really made me want to always have a good attitude and try my best, and never give up. She gave all student good encouragement throughout the entire course. I had to go to the mainland for a medical procedure so I am not able to complete entire course will be back in January to finish it. This is the first time I took math and felt relaxed and highly motivated by the professor and her helper.
really easy to talk to, explains everything in detail so everyone can understand, shows her care for the students and shows that she wants everyone to do well in her class. she doesn't mind taking time even if it is outside the classroom to enable the students to grow in math
she is strict but patient.
she really encourage you to work hard...but i wish i could have had her as a teacher who lectured the class then doing most of the work on your own...i mean we could ask for help from her,neighbors in class,and the book...but there was a lot of students...
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
N/A
None.
instead of putting learning the material on the student, you should teach the material for each section on the board. allow the students to engage in class discussions. it's your job as a teacher to teach. the amount students learned from you will dramatically show in their homework, test, and quizzes scores. the only reason why i was able to get through this class so easily was because i learned this material before. for my classmates, a lot of them didn't know much taking them three times as long as me on a section.
nothing really.
Get some new helpers in the lab with you.
As far as this class none.Also i would keep the class the way it is on the computer because that way everyone can move at their own pace. Their are alot of resources kcc offers if you fall behind, 2 instructors per class,math lab open 5 days a week with 2 math assistance helpers,friday workshops, tutors....thats alot of help i would take all of this over a basic lecture math 24 course....anyday
none
none
no changes
i wished she could have thought me like she said she thought her students, before this semester started this new program of math 24.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Seemed very concerned about students, a lot really in the last 3 weeks of the course
she walked around to check on everyone and had meetings with us half way through to see where we were at
I didnt have to seek her out, she would pull me aside & help me when she could see that i was strugling.
She helps students by encouraging them try to stay on course. She addresses the problem clearly.
Instructor Bebi Davis showed her sincere concern to her students by pushing and constantly reminding her students on what needs to be done according to the syllabus. She puts herself in her students shoe whenever a student felt like they are stuck with both personal and course obstacles. A BIG STAR GOES TO INSTRUCTOR Davis, Bebi,
Regarding the students that were falling behind, she encouraged them to continue and try harder. With regarding the course, I think it is unfair to judge the teacher to hard because we did not have a lecture type course. I think this is a lot harder learn in that type of environment.
helped us solve problems we didn't understand.
She keeps in pretty close contact and is always available to answer any questions.
she tells the whole class on what module they should be on so they be all on time without one student falling behind the reccomended schedule.
She checked everyone's progress on a regular basis and was always available and willing to help.
She was able to accomidate me when I wasn't able to make it to class.
Every class she made reminder announcements as to what was expected of us and where in the schedule we should be.
very careing i remember 1 class this same female student would get so fustrated when she did not understand the material she would start crying miss davis would calm her down in the nicest way...and would work it threw with her and this happen 2 more times with the same female and she handled it in a very careing way
Always very caring person.
She makes sure everyone is on track and keeping up with the work
she send me emails with remainders, and always ask if I understand
She helped as much students as she could within the 1hour or even 50min of class that we had. i mean i dont blame her cause we had the last class and i mean everyone is tired..but i give her credit...
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yeah. she was nice
Yes, She wants everyone to do well.
Yes i would recommend Bebi Davis to students because she is a great teacher. She knows what she's doing and she's encouraging.
YES!!! Because she is very skillful on her subject and she is capable of motivating students to get the job done. A BIG STAR GOES ONCE AGAIN TO INSTRUCTOR Davis, Bebi,
Unknown.
yes, this is a fast past class. attendance is crucial!
Yes, good teacher, very helpful.
yes, a very good and nice teacher that teaches MATH 24.
Absolutely.
Definately!
yes, she was more than fair in her expectations.
yes i would reason being is listed in the above coments
Yes highly especially if individual has hard time in math and needs motivation to strive for exellence.
Absolutely!!! I think she is a fabulous teacher!
yes
yes..if she lectured the class..but i mean everyone has their own opinion... but i would rather had her lecture the subject and i mean other students might of liked the new way...but i guess that's just college..
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Well rounded Instructor!!!
None.
N/A
I really enjoyed taking her class.
great person, greater teacher.
She's a great teacher with an awesome personality.
Just very good instructor that goes beyond her job thats the kind of people you want to be surrounded by....10+

None.
N/A
Bebi is a great professor. She really helps you understand things and is always there to help you when you need it.
Being that it was a computer based, learn at your own pace course, there was little interaction for teacher-student instruction so I feel that most of this eval doesn't apply to the instructor. I went to the workshops and they helped me but I would have liked to have one day per week mandatory classroom instruction. Also, I felt the mid term exam wasn't fair to what the subject matter in the computer lessons were.
Yes dont change the way the class is designed now computer generated....is superior over lecture.
none
This class was not very organized. When questions were asked they were not answered clearly. It was difficult for the instructor to assist students as everyone was on a different section so she was having to run around to each student and there just was not enough time for her to get to each student. Rules changed every class what was said at one class about grading was changed by the next class that was very frustrating.

Mrs. Davis, It was great having you has a teacher. I can tell you really enjoy teaching, and enjoy your students. Overall the course was a good course. The study guides were wonderful to study from. For furture maybe you can teach it your own words and do activites to drive the point home. Sometimes the powerpoints became overwhelming for me and they blurred together.
This course is well taught at very fast pace. In my opinion, Bebi Davis is definitely one of the best instructors at HCC. Mrs. Davis has the right energy to keep your attention for the entire course. I would recommend this course to any student willing to put in the time and effort required to keep pace with the information. Also, Mrs. Davis has a way of connecting with student through her life stories that's inspiring.
She is a wonderful teacher. I can recommend her to other students.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She knew what she was teaching very well
Very good at explaining material.
Knows the subject very well!!!
She is fully dedicated and committed to her students, and believes they should take their learning in to their own hands.
she explains things well.
She is good at teaching. I like the way bebi davis, speak clear and have everything ready to teach. She know what she is doing. Always on time, never late. If she know she can't make it to class on that day she will let us know that way. We didn't have to come to class on that day.
let the students think for themselves
Clearly states how to solve problems and presents it in a manner in which a student can comprehend.
She knows how to teach. She gives out quality work and it pays off on the test.
Bebi loves math and enjoys teaching it. Which makes the class fun and interesting
she knows her math well
She is a very great teacher. She might move a little quickly but if you're trying to learn math you have to be able to adapt quickly.
She is very friendly, yet very strict. She made you aware that you are there to learn.
She really knows her stuff, and was very helpful in teaching us what we needed to know. She would explain things until we got it, she would also help those who needed more help individually as well.
she knows everything...
Easy to talk to and ask questions. Very good at giving explanations.
,
Awesome teacher.
her knowledge of the subject
She returns tests and assignments right away.
Oh my goodness, she's awesome. She constantly encouraged the class to get together for study groups to discuss homework or prepare for a chapter test coming up. She drilled into us that every time she gives a review for a quiz or chapter test, to re-write the problems with different numbers to help remember the operation. She's very personable with her students and because she's so easy to talk to, you end up building a friendship with her. I wish I had her for all my classes. Too bad you couldn't duplicate her.
The strong points were the examples and drive she gives you to succeed . Always gives her tips and other alternative ways to help other than just looking at a book .
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Teaching of more classes
none.
Keep up the good work and thank you

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She individually checked students notes and if incorrect nudged them in the right direction.
She always went around making sure we were all understanding the material.
telling me to study and study.
always being there.
In class, bebi Davis will go around to check to see do we need any help on a problem. Usually i do need help on a math problem. When i am stuck on a problem.Bebi will help me and explain how to sovle equation till i understand.
Mrs. Davis held a review prior to every exam in which she provided the student with knowledge and what is expected of them to succeed.
She always would walk around class uring our classwork to see and check on us how we were doing.
She was always there and explained things very well if you had any questions
She always replied within a few hours
She is VERY caring and she is very encouraging. She lets you know that you can do whatever you want to if you put your mind to it... and study.
She would explain things over and over again until we would got it. She would assist those who needed more help individually. she wouldn't hesitate to help whenever we had questions.
i don't know
It's obvious that she cares about the students and wants everyone to do well.
Always took time to answer any questions.
applying in-class assignment
Returned tests and assignments right away.
Since you build a relationship with her she's like a mother, and if someone she noticed was having a hard time in class, she'd called on you to make sure you're okay with the lesson before moving on to the next section. If you still didn't get it, she would encourage you to check with your classmate or see her after class for further discussion.
She always gives reminders , goes around to make sure your understanding in the subject .
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, if you do your homework and study this class is fun
Yes, great teacher.

I would recommend Bebi because she covers the concepts thoroughly, yet keeps in mind that practice is always a great learning tool. You do not learn what you do not practice.
of course! she is a good teacher!

Yes, because she's awesome. After being out of school for 19yrs and took a chance in going back to school and starting all over again, what better way to start with a teacher like her. If I had her as my teacher back when I was in school, I doubt I would've waited this long to go back to school. She also does not play favorites, she treats everyone fair.
Yes. I recommend Davis for the students who do want to succeed and understand . Davis is very good with time managing ,and reserving time for the harder subjects .

Everyday during class while she is teaching she would take a couple laps around the class room and help every single student one at a time with the work for the day and wait until everyone is on the same page them move on.
She would check each students work, and assist the student in solving the problem. Also, she would stay after class to assist students with questions about problems in class or on the homework.
