Selected Quotes from Teaching Evaluations

From my Instructor position in Natural Resource Economics (04/2019 - 06/2019):

  • "François is one of the most dedicated, passionate instructors I've ever had. It was clear he wanted us all to learn and dedicated more of his time to helping us than any other professor I've had. This class was challenging, but his support throughout the quarter was incredibly helpful!"

  • "François was very helpful and available outside of class. He went out of his way to help us and was very friendly and approachable. His office hours and review sessions were very helpful. He also was very transparent about grading and actively asked for applied feedback."

  • "François was extremely responsive to feedback. The class was really challenging but I learned so much. Would love to take it again. One of the few classes that was challenging and made us learn beyond memorizing."

  • "Very helpful outside of class. Really responsive to emails, sets up study sessions outside of class. Clearly wants to help everyone understand the material."

  • "The slides were super helpful and he himself went above and beyond to help the students."

  • "François is very caring and genuinely wants to see his students succeed."

  • "[What I appreciated most about this instructor is his] passion about the material."

  • "[What I appreciated most about this instructor is his] organization and preparedness.";

  • "[What I appreciated most about this instructor is his] eagerness to teach the class."

Top 3 strengths: Intellectual content (4.7/5), enthusiasm about the subject matter (4.6/5), and availability outside of class (4.6/5).
