Instructor Rating

At the conclusion of class a program evaluation form is provided for students to evaluate all aspects of the program, including the instructor.  All aspects are rated on a scale of one to four, with four being the highest rating.  This instructor has consistently and universally been rated at four for over two decades. The evaluation form is completely anonymous.  There is no place for names or contact information.  There is however a space for comments in every category.  Below you will find comments from recent classes.
