Professor Quesenberry has been very helpful and supportive during this session. He always provides feedback and valuable comments to our discussions as well as to our writing assignment. As an international student, I felt comfortable participating in the class discussions and Professor Quesenberry provided me with constructive feedback and professional guidance whether on my discussion participation or in my writing assignments. I would definitely take another class with him.

Professor Quesenberry did an excellent job of interacting with his students discussion on the discussion board. He is quick to post a response to his students' posts, and is great at asking thought probing questions and then following up with a response when the student answers.

Professor Quesenberry responded in a timely manner to each of my discussion posts with thought–provoking questions. Every response back, he usually responded again to make it seem like more of a conversation.
