STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

" I am very glad that I got the courage to reach out to you for help. I have a weird fear of seeking help from faculty members when I need it, but without your help I do not think that I would have understood as much of the course material as I did. This has been a difficult quarter for me both personally and academically. I often feel like an outsider after returning from a year off to complete my last year, so I do not really interact with my peers as much as I would like. I can tell that you genuinely want to help students. With that being said, I just truly thank you for being a person that I could go to for help."

"I just wanted to thank you for all you taught my classmates and I. You have helped me so much. I learned so much from you. You have been a remodel (sic) for me from the minute you walked in. I just wanted to thank you for being my teacher this year. You have been an inspiration to me."
