Instructor Evaluations....

Warning! Shameless plug follows!

Lets contrast and compare a couple here shall we?

"I consider Mr. XXX very knowledgeable. He knows his subject very well. He is very encouraging and will take that extra time to enable you to succeed. Kudos to Mr.XXX, an Economics and Finance person like me can now speak the IT and networking language. Never thought that could happen! THANK YOU!"

"Just a short note to tell you that I really enjoyed the Concealed Carry Class taught by XXX on Sun, Jan 23rd.

XXX is an excellent instructor. He's very knowledgeable and his classroom style is natural and easy. He has that rare quality of being able to impart his knowledge to others in an easy-going and unassuming manner. I remained engaged and interested the entire time.
I previously held a Concealed Carry Permit in New York State, for may years, before relocating to North Carolina, and knew a lot about guns and their safe use, but I learned a lot of new things (not just the NC legalities), and that pleasantly surprised me,

Thanks again XXX & Elite !!"

And then just when you think your head will not get through standard doorways here comes this: "I am not sure if the instructor had good knowledge of the subject he was teaching"

So, which of the above do you think I like the best and has the most import to me as an instructor?


  1. Ok, so most flattery is suspicious at best. However, I know that you are knowledgeable and do have a good grasp on your subject matter, so I wouldn't say the positive comments are flattery at all. As for the last one, meh, there are some people out there who aren't happy with anything. Acknowledge and move on.

  2. @ sbrenneis- The last one came from you know where. I can see remotely what students are doing during the lectures on the desktops in front of them. When I call one out and say something like "you need to use the sniper rifle there moron", they get a little bent.
