The Weaknesses of this Instructor were:

Short class, only a month.

Not the instructors fault but I needed more time to master the material.

I wish the class were a week longer to learn in a timely manner and not rush things.

Could slow down just a little and show where what item is located. (Not a big deal though.)

Sometimes goes too fast. It is hard to keep up.

If anything I would recommend to slow down during lecture so students can follow along better.

Sometimes you move a bit too fast and I feel embarrassed to ask for help or to interrupt.

Subject is naturally dull, so students fall asleep.

A little dull, but he tried to make it interesting.

Could use more challenging assignments.

The projector needs to show Excel bigger. Sometimes hard to see, but not professor’s fault.

The projector is impossible to see, especially small icons. Makes it difficult and frustrating to follow along.

Jokes sometimes too corny … inhibit learning.


He was great at everything, no flaws at all J

No weaknesses.

No need to improve.

None! Straightforward class.

None. This dude is a beast. J

Thank you for teaching me all about Excel! I had no idea once I started this course. I will be able to use this information in the future. This class definitely helps for group presentations.

I have never learned so much in such a short period of time! J This class was a huge help. I’ve already started implementing the things I’ve learned in this class at my job. Thank you! J
