Kelvin is a great professor and I would highly recommend him. Midterms are exactly like practice tests, homework is manageable and he makes such a boring topic semi-interesting. He even wore a deer blow-up costume on Halloween.

Kelvin is, hands down, the best professor I have ever had. He does such a great job of explaining things that are difficult to understand. I really enjoyed this class, and I feel like I have learned a lot. 10/10

Absolutely loved Kelvin! Great teacher, interesting lectures, great at explaining all concepts! Very approachable, always willing to help! Only 2 midterms - almost identical to practice midterms. Highly recommended!

Kelvin is a quirky, hilarious dude, and a great econ teacher. He's a genuinely nice and helpful person and passionate about what he teaches. Makes abstract ideas crystal clear with his demonstrations and exams and assignments aren't unreasonable or unexpected. He does his best to make the subject fun and exciting. Would definitely recommend him.

Absolutely great professor, knowledgeable and helpful. Also tries to keep a very boring topic interesting and teaches using examples. Tests are easy, just study the past exams and you'll do fine.

Probably the best econ lecture giver ever. He even won a national competition for teaching Econ. Provides many resources. All I ever needed was just to ask one quick question. Very approachable, so I went up to him and he explained it very thoroughly, instead of just telling me how to work the problem. He also replies to emails fairly quickly.

Kelvin Wong is the best lecturer I have ever had. He makes boring econ lectures interesting by involving the audience and providing examples. He makes himself very available for office hours and wants all students to succeed. The textbook is very useful in understanding the course material.
