Student Comments Spring 2019

“I really appreciate this economy class. Through that course, you have taught me that economy is how to use my current resources (limited) to build a good future for my wife and our three children. Thanks a lot for your feed back and for being the one who made me understand that truth. It will be a great honor to meet next time if possible.”
“You truly found a way to make economics interesting. GSU needs more professors like you! Thank you so much for the great feedback, I really enjoyed your class and you were very helpful.”
“You don't know how much I appreciated taking your class. I learned a lot from your lectures and slides. Thank you so much for having me.”
“Thank you and I appreciate  all your effort with working with me. You were very understanding and I wish you well in your upcoming classes.”
“Thank you for your support for this semester. It was very useful class to me.”

“I really appreciate how caring and attentive you are and how genuine you were towards me and the entire class. You are a great professor! Keep up the great work!! I really enjoyed your class! Enjoy the rest of your summer!”
“I wanted to let you know that I have greatly appreciated the practice exams and feedback you have provided me with this semester. Since I have transferred to GSU you are the only professor I have had that legitimately seems to want to help students prepare for exams by outlining and providing tools to practice. I tend to struggle with test taking anxiety and this has been extremely helpful for me. Thank you again, and take care."
