Most recent, written feedback: 

Extremely good TA, always goes the extra mile to ensure students understand everything in depth.

Very passionate about the material, knowledgeable and an avid advocate for our concerns. He will make an excellent Professor.

Vimal was also very good.

Extremely good explaining difficult topics.

I did learn a lot from this class.

Fantastic job Vimal 🙂

Very detailed and clear explanations, always willing to help.

All around excellent. Amazing notes, very coherent and easily approachable. Also, like the structure of the actual classes and the support classes (no problem sets but rather an in-detail revision of the actual class).

Too strict about technology being used in class, which even professors don’t care about.

Vimal is a great TA. Very clear & coherent. I find an aspect of his teaching particularly valuable: linking the theory to what’s happening in the real world. I hope other TAs, even lecturers, can also do that.

Vimal was an amazing TA. He showed more passion than most teachers. Amazing clarity and explanations. Hire him as a full time professor! He is an amazing teacher! Don’t let him leave SBS!!!

Vimals explanations of the intuition behind concepts were very helpful.

Excellent at explanations. Sometimes better than lecture itself. Best TA so far.

I found Vimals classes really useful. He goes over the material clearly and methodically explaining difficult questions well. He clearly puts a lot of time into the preparation. This arrangement was much more useful than going through problem sets.

Clear explanations. Helpful and broad coverage of course.

Very supportive TA. Very helpful.

Willing to slog through algebra with the class and spend significant amounts of time answering queries. Also very obviously well-versed in both theoretical and empirical of asset pricing.

Very careful and is capable of solving students problems.

Patient. Knowledgeable.

Clear and goes through the material slowly to ensure everyone understands. However sometimes its too slow and I lose track of what the purpose of all the algebra is. Good slides.

Clear.
Extremely attentive and very clear in his explanations, the classes were of real value. I also appreciated the fact that Vimal attended the lectures unlike for other courses.

best support class I’ve been to. Only a few times explanations were not 100% clear (trading volume).

Great class teacher.

Vimal is a great tutor with enthusiasm.

Nice TA.

Clear in instruction.

Very good TA. He is clear and tries his best to help.

The notes are structured a lot better than the main lectures. More explanation than the main lectures.
Good.

Good support class.
Very good.

Vimal does a good job explaining! Best TA! Should not be discouraged by low attendance.

Patient and clear. Very helpful.

Very patient and clear. Repeated all material covered in lectures in very structured way. His slides were often easier to understand and better structured than lectures.

Good TA – knows the material.
