My experience as a student with Dr. Arshadi was an exceptional one. I found that he was able to simplify complicated topics into a pneumonic or story to help the class remember high yield points. He was attentive to the individual weaknesses and strengths of students. Most importantly, he was always accessible for questions and directed learning. His open communication skills surely helped in that aspect. There are many individuals who enjoy the idea of teaching but to be an effective teacher requires a certain skillset; John Arshadi truly possesses this skillset.
