Selected feedback on teaching

Spring 2021

'The course's pacing and difficulty was something I did not expect, but it was ultimately rewarding and left an impact that other more lax courses may not have. The professor's enthusiasm for the course is infectious, and his lectures paired with the practice he instructed us to do were more than sufficient for me to absorb the course material. I'm grateful for taking this course.' (Principles of Statistics)

'Professor Baldomero Quintana was really good at helping me when I had questions on class material, after the first exam which went badly, and for the policy memo which was difficult. The class itself is difficult but he made it a lot easier by always answering questions.' (International Trade Theory)

Fall 2020

"This class is tough, but Professor Baldomero–Quintana has made it really interesting and thought–provoking. He encourages independent thinking and critical intuition in his learning, which I really appreciate" (International Trade Theory)

"Professor Baldomero–Quintana is perhaps the most enthusiastic professor I have had at William and Mary – if not the most, then certainly one of the most. His zeal for international trade makes the course more engaging, his lectures more effective, and the information more accessible." (International Trade Theory)

Winter, 2019

"Luis Baldomero–Quintana was a very passionate and amazing teacher. He explained every concept extremely well and wanted to do everything he could to help the students in his class. He teaches with lots of energy that is contagious and made me very interested in the material. Luis also was super helpful during office hours and made sure all my questions were answered before I left." (Principles of Microeconomics)

Fall, 2018

"Great work! Demanding and strict, but always for the benefit of the students. And also a good atmosphere." (Principles of Macroeconomics)

Winter, 2017

"I am so glad I got Luis as my GSI! He explained everything so clearly and focused on the most important material so I felt well prepared. I appreciate his genuine passion, which definitely rubbed off on me even though I was not excited to take this class. I liked his additional content about how to connect economics to our own lives/current events that he finds interesting." (Principles of Macroeconomics)

Winter, 2016

"Luis was a fun and energetic GSI who made learning the ECON material enjoyable. He cared about the students and made sure that we understood the topics on the exam and beyond. My highest praise to Luis." (Principles of Macroeconomics)

Fall, 2015

"Luis was an exceptional GSI. He really, truly helped students understand the material and was extremely helpful in helping students who struggled initially with the material keep up with the pace of the class. I am incredibly grateful I had Luis as my GSI." (Principles of Macroeconomics)

Winter, 2015

"The best GSI I have had yet at Michigan. He was always prepared for class and genuinely wanted to help us do well on exams. Went above and beyond to help us. " (Principles of Macroeconomics)

Fall, 2014

"Luis was extremely helpful to me in and outside of class. He always knew the answer to questions, and I think he is one of the most effective teachers I've had in 3 semesters of college. He was also extremely engaging and always taught using questions, which was very helpful. Loved this discussion" (Principles of Macroeconomics)
