"Dave Salmon is an outstanding student-athlete. An outstanding
business student, he carries a 3.6 GPA while playing wide
receiver on SU's football team. He earned the highest average in
my Intermediate Accounting I class of any student last semester.
Because of his exemplary performance, I selected Mr. Salmon to
serve as my Supplemental Instructor for this class this year,
and his results and reviews have been excellent. For those
students who attend his sessions, I hear nothing but praise for
his content and delivery, and on average, students attending his
reviews earned five points more that their counterparts on the
midterm exam. He exhibits all of the qualities I would like our
graduates to possess."
Words of Wisdom: "A great man once said that 80
percent of success is just showing up. Attendance is the most
important aspect of any class. If you show up, you're already
more than halfway to passing the class."
