Kim is as tough as a bristlecone pine and treats his teaching subject like a child treats presents on christmas morning. If you can match his enthusiasm, he will infect you with his. If you want to skate by, be prepared to be torn a new one. don't slack and know the material, and you will be fine

this guy needs to retool his curriculum. little more American and less Uber-German. Its like trying to learn from an Administator rather than a Mentor willing to foster education.

Kim Aufhauser is the most brilliant, fascinating, complicated man I have ever met. His skill as a teacher is nonpareil, his competence in the wilderness sublime. Value his knowledge and he will give you the world. If not, you will soon wish you had died as a child. His classes are challenging. (More so if you find his physical presence distracting)

Excellent teacher if you can get past his personality. He doesn't like slackers - if you work hard, study the material, and give every exercise and activity he throws at you your very best, you won't have to endure his wrath. If on the other hand you're looking to slide through this class, he'll eat you alive and spit you out in front of the class.

His energy is contagious as well as his enthusiasm. He is experienced and has planty of connections as well as names and facts to throw at you. I appreciate that he is just as much a teacher as a student to his subject

Clear and direct when transferring his knowledge to the students. No personal issues with me or any other student in my class... and one of the best connections to hook you up for a job on parks.

A teacher who not only knows his subjects extremely well, but knows how to TEACH. Classes are challenging and interesting. You know you've EARNED your grade, whatever it is. More than willing to spend time with you if you are having difficulty grasping something, or just to offer encouragement. Kim-and his classes-can be intense, but so's life!
