Vidal Borromeo

EECS 381

Vidal makes it extremely easy to receive help with his class: Students can attend any of his 14 posted office hours. If that’s not enough, students can attend his bi-semester 12-hour exam review sessions. In the classroom, he created learning tools to add fun to the classroom, such as color coding concepts to create better associations and asking students to create and solve their own practice problems. Vidal organizes skydiving and other team bonding trips for his students. Even after the course is over, he continues to mentor students, helping them find success in the classroom and confidence in themselves.
