19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
with all sorts of accounting classes, possibly simplify the material if possible through certain examples.
I would not change a thing.
Mr. Van Tuyl did a wonderful job teaching this course, I feel there are no changes that should be made!
nothing
I think the material is well suited for the class, the only obstacle was trying to get on line for the homework page.
Nothing its just how online classes should be. Not to hard and not to easy.
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
His methods of trying to understand the course he also trys to understand the course as well. He does his best to understand the course as best as possible.
Peter Van Tuyl was always there for me, anytime I needed to ask him a question he was always right there to help me. Even though this is a online course anytime I needed to call him, he always picked up. Day or Night. If it came down to it he was always more then happy to do a video chat with me so that he can actually show me what I am doing wrong.
This course was delivered online but the resourses and quick repsonses from the teacher gave me the opportunity to better my education.
I think that he has very good people skills, which allows him to be considerate and fair.
I think it is hard for my instructor to answer all students on line, but his support and concern has helped me have a good attitude towards taking on line classes
Distance learning.
I think the teacher was great.
21. Has he/she contributed to your general knowledge or to learning job skills?
Got a bit of insight to understanding the course a lil more than before, but still at odds trying to understand accounting as a whole.
Absolutly.
Mr. Van Tuyl is a wonderful teacher with so much knowledge and experience in the field of accounting. He has taught me different parts of the accounting process which will be beneficial to my future career goals in accounting.
Yes
He has most definitely contributed to my general knowledge of learning accounting. I am sure if I was to pursue accounting as a career, I would be well versed in what I have learned.
Yes, I learned the basics of accounting.
Yes
22. Other comments:
Another way of possibly simplifying the course material?
He is my favorite Teacher. And I wish I was having him as a teacher next year.
Thank you Mr. Van Tuyl for all your help this semester, you have been a very caring teacher who takes the time to explain when I had a problem with my work. You are a great asset to the accounting field and I hope to see you offering more courses in our field. Once again thank you for all your help! Bev
