Yes completely, she was always available to help the students.

She is open to the students perspective and stance on subjects by helping to improve the students writing regardless of subject content.

14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I don't think this class needed any changes. I really enjoyed it!

None.
None at this moment.
*none
Have more one on one conversations with the students to help with their writing assaignment.
I wouldn't change anything, her assignments are on point and useful.
I suggest she be more stern with her due dates and not be so flexible all the time because it is unfair to other students who do it on time.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Every class she would come around the students and ask each one of us how we were doing on our assignment and if we needed any help. She also would always remind us that if we needed help or anything with our assignments outside of class that we could reach her through email and she actually does reply unlike some other teachers.
She post everything on laulima and talk about the message when someone was absent.
Going up to students individually and asking if they understand or need any help.
She was very quick to reply to emails & expressed her concern if I was missing from class.
During work days she would come around and assist students in their work and answer any questions. While explaining something one-on-one with a student she would explain it the first time and later go back after she was done to clarify anything that may have been confusing.
She takes it upon herself to make sure students are on task via email before the student asks for help.
She always updated the announcements on laulima, always asking us if we need help, giving us feedback on our essays so we're able to make the essay even better, and she's always asking what our status is with the essay so she knows if we need more time to work on it.
She had office hours and replied to all her emails promptly.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?

Yes, she is a very professional educator that is passionate about her career. She is very helpful & easy to approach to talk to for help.
Yes i would recommend. She is knowledgeable, readily available, and friendly to students whenever approached.

Yes, I would recommend her to students because she's a great teacher and you learn a lot from her.
Yes, she is a really good teacher and her class is really straight forward.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Her class teaches you the basics of writing the various types of essays which I thought was very helpful. She gives you a lot of time for planning and really understanding the different types of essays there are which I thought was very helpful as a freshman. Very nice teacher and very knowledgable. I enjoyed her class very much.
Should get more people attentions to come to classes.
If an extension on a due date is required, more likely than not she will allow for it.
She was an exceptional teacher and I enjoyed her class
Overall, she's a really great and helpful teacher.
NA

11. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I learned how gender and race are always interrelated. I improved my writing skills from her feedback.
feedback and instruction
She was very available and cared about us learning how to write a good paper. Content was interesting, yet got a little old towards to end, kind of felt we did a lot of writings that seemed very repetitive
The teacher.
A lot of paper writing and chances to improve my writing skills. I knew that because this class was a writing intensive class the course material wouldn't be as easy because there would be a lot of papers to write. I found this actually valuable because writing papers helps with overall college work because college itself consist of writing so much papers.

N/A
I know the class is mostly looking at gender and race, but possibly just let us write about something different at times.
Possibly broaden or make clear the writing assignments. All were a bit too similar.
I think she should encourage more group discussions I know there was once an opportunity that a group of students had to talk about either a reading or movie that was assigned but sometimes students wouldn't have much to say so I think there should of been more opportunities for some group discussions.

N/A
Nothing
Have more of them discussions like on Fridays.
22. What changes would you make in the discussion sections?
Most students are shy and don't speak up like myself so somehow find a way to engage all students.
N/A
Nothing from the teacher. More interaction between students.
Allow more discussion sessions because it could provide an opportunity for more of the students to speak as well as being able to get to know one another more. I know that with the last week of classes being here, I still do not know all of the students in this class's names.
23. What changes would you make in the writing assignments?
N/A
Wider variety of topics
Broader range of topic.
24. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
N/A
Just continue what you are doing and I believe things inevitable will get better and better.

SHE'S SO AWESOME! I love her! she really cares for the student
N/A
Ann was one of my favorite teachers I have had at UH, although there was a lot of writing, she made sure that it we were never over loaded and made sure we were all on the same page at all times. She always made sure that if we were stuck or having issues with our assignments that she was there to provide assistance and give us advice. You could tell that she really cared about us, and all of our learning individually. She's an awesome teacher and super sweet person ---I very much enjoyed going to class! :)
Thank you so much Ms! I had a blast and you are so sweet!

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
puts herself out there to help students in any way possible to improve their performance
Making conferences to help students one by one.
she know the course well, know how to communicate with her students
Efforts
Making sure she was available when students needed help or was falling behind. She makes sure to talk to you and see what's wrong & if she can help. I like the way she does conferences to make sure you have a subject & you are going in the right direction.
Her major strengths were being there for the students outside of class. Always answering my questions & made sure i understood clearly of what i needed help with
She is very thorough with her lessons. She goes into detail with the assignments she gives us. She encourages the students to think on a deeper level than just to scratch the surface of the topic we are on.
she is very clear about what needs to be done
She's a well spoken teacher and always wants the best for her students
She is very understanding and is willing to work around the student.
She makes English clear and makes sure we knew what each essay required from us.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
do more grammar exercises because most students in the 100 level english class dont really know about grammar. use the textbook more because it wasnt used very often in class
none
Always have conferences before writing the first draft for the essays. It really helped me & made me go in the right direction for my final essay. We talked about how I should structure my paper, what information I needed & how to make my paper flow between transitions.
nope
None
Getting the class involved in participation more would help a lot.
Nothing.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
through email and in person conferences if need be
Yes, because she clearly knows the field of english.
She always check us if we doing ok through e mail
she take time and have conference with each us, and whenever we needed it

15. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Dr. H is obviously a very caring woman. She was patient and accomodating to the individual students' needs.
Her ability to articulate the course requirements and teach it.
Dr. Hiramine's major strength was to give a strong and clear feedback to her students. She not only helps students out on essays, but she also talks with students for an efficient approach, and to overcome difficulties in the class. She also speaks clearly and helps you whenever you ask. She's devoted to helping students succeed. She answers any questions precisely so students wont wander off in the wrong direction. Overall, listens carefully to concerns students have in the class, and finds a way to help the students succeed in the class.
always willing to help, is very clear with material. challenges you when appropiate.
her strengths are very clear, to progress the students forward. in making clear and understandable essays and thesis.

17. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I would suggest hastening the pace of the class.
There are no changes that I feel should be suggested because she teachs in a good pace and teaches the composition of writing as a college level course. One slight change that could be made is to go hrough our MLA handbook more thoroughly as we bought it to understand content emphasized through the book. But everything else is great. We should have gone through some more excerpts so we would get the feel of writing our designated essay.
nothing she was really good :]
More freedom of topic.
english is one of the hardest things to keep interesting in a classroom.
none
She can be a little quiet.
none

19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She listened carefully to what each student had to say and took very well to any kind of constructive criticism. She even encouraged it.
Very concerned.
The instructor has shown concern for her students by having conferencing to make sure students are working efficiently on their subjected essay. She helps students out when they are stuck or hit a block while writing their essays. Dr. Hiramine answers all e-mailed questions in a short amount of time so we, the students, can get feedback while working on our papers independently.
if we had a question she would talk to us about it, if we still didn't get it clear she would talk to us one on one.
she always listened and gave feedback.
Checking in with them regularly after class and via email.
was very accommodating to abscenses and replied to emails quickly. grades papers on time and gives her personal feedback if a student wants it.

Yes, I would recommend this instructor to other students because she cares for the material being taught.
