“I am thoroughly pleased and thankful I found myself in your class. Your instructional videos help with the concepts and what to pay attention to. Without these, I would be really far behind. Just thought you should be reminded that your silliness and attention to detail is appreciated. I had fun.

Chelsea, Accounting Student

“I just wanted to let you know that I’ve enjoyed your class so much that I’ve signed up for your next accounting class in the second half of this fall semester. I’m now starting to consider a career in either accounting or finance.” 

Isaac, Accounting Student
