He's super goofy when you have a class that harmonizes well together, although tbh he does play favorites. If you actively participate (and if you have friends in the class) it'll be a fun ride for you. However if you have a boring class, you might as well become a jokester because Davis likes to laugh and have fun. Overall, he's really nice and a fun teacher to have
Having Steve Jobs as a teacher is pretty cool.
Extremely knowledgeable about Japanese culture but his Japanese class is actually quite difficult because he is not very good at teaching in general but a nice person and will help you out personally.
Never personally had him as a teacher but he was one of the judo coaches and I can say that he truly cares about those who want to succeed and do well. People say he's weird
How to make him like you:
- Show interest in Japanese
- Be modest, but still with confidence.
His quizzes are a little sketchy. Throughout the year, he teaches you to learn Japanese without translating it into English. Un
He does indeed pick favorites. At the beginning, you'll be swamped with plenty of work and things he'll say you'll be working on. But! Somewhere along the line, he becomes forgetful. Expect a lot of holes in your grade re
well... he's old and kinda reminds me of my grand pa, so i don't mind him as much as some people do, plus he's kinda funny... in a quarky way. the tests are hard sometimes but over all i enjoy the class.
Bad grading system, unorganized, picks on you, horrible tests.
he might be a good teacher, but advisory is definitely not his strong point
So, most times he's absolutely gone from the classroom the first 5 minutes or on his computer... Then he points at his feet and says "sumesaki," so I assume that means feet. No, it means toes. GRADED DOWN. Very based on EC.
Mr. Davis is a great person, and a terrible teacher. He is very helpful and quite knowledgable, but he lacks in his ability to properly teach a class. His methods and use of technology are not up to student standards.
He's quite a character. A lot of people blame him for not having a good curriculum which is true because he's so busy with Judo/Cherry blossom festival/Exchange. I think learning in his class is based upon extracurricular
He's very dedicated to his students, and if you look past his quirkyness, he's a very compassionate and intelligent person.
He's incredibly dedicated to the subject, but it often feels as though you're doing the same things over and over. He also has a tendency to launch off into off-topic rants.
A little loopy sometimes. Dosen't seem to have a definite lesson plan for 2nd year. Teaches wonderfully for 1st years, though. Very nice man, though not without his quirks. :)
His class is super easy, but it's because he can't teach. He is nice and funny, but if you really want to learn Japanese, take it somewhere else.
Bleh.... I learned not much from my 2 years in his course. Actually, I didn't learn much in my 2nd year... :/
Mr. Davis gets very exciting about the Japanese that he teaches.
Different style, but i like it, pretty easy on grades but loses things sometimes
unique style, yet affective if interested in learning. cool japanese teacher...... ne sensei?
