2 reviews for Data Analytics – April 5th, 2018

  1. “I liked that he taught us different ways to look at/solve the same type of problem. I also liked that he was so knowledgeable and excited about what he was teaching. I did struggle with some of the initial homework lessons but the further we have gotten into the class the more they started
    making sense to me.
    His knowledge and enthusiasm – it helps me get excited about things that can sometimes be boring after being at work all day. It is very interesting to listen to someone talk about something they clearly are passionate about. He also has amazing amounts of patience – he is able to teach people at different levels of understanding, and somehow get them all to understand the concept (by using different scenerios.)” – Sarah Myers

  2. “I liked the hands on experience with coding ( language R). The instructor willingly and happily answered all the questions. Also, he knew his subject.” – Aisha Salman
