Testimonials of SITE customers. 

I have contacted teaching consultants to work with me one-on-one for several reasons: tabulating and interpreting SRTE and midsemester feedback from my students, visiting my classroom to observe, document, and evaluate my teaching, address behavioral and classroom management problems in a large lecture class, and provide suggestions on the organization, layout, and content of my course webpage. These individual consults are extremely valuable for pinpointing specific issues or problems I want to work on in my class. When I get worried about an issue that is not going well, SITE is my first phone call.
