References for Art Lynch (partial)

AWESOME coaching Art! Its no wonder that's your name.

Meek Ruiz
To Whom It May Concern,

    Mr. Lynch was my Communications 101 teacher. As a non-traditional returning student, who had not taken classes for over twenty years, I went into the class thinking that I would die because we had to give speeches and it would not be very fun. However, because of Mr. Lynch, the class was very exciting, and I got to know a lot of people. Mr. Lynch made all of the information easy to understand and if we had any questions, we felt free and confident enough to ask.

This class built up my confidence, and has made it easier for me to talk to and in front of others. We talked about current situations and what was going on in the news and how it related to communications, which was nice because it kept me up to speed on what was going on around the world. Mr. Lynch was also very helpful with our speeches and would work with us individually, with the whole class, and over e-mail. He was always available and willing to help.

He made the class difficult enough to where we learned something and we had to the work and do it right in order to get a good grade, but he made sure that we understood everything and gave us all of the material and advice we would need to do well. I highly recommend Mr. Lynch as a teacher and his charisma will carry over to the class and motivate them to work hard.

I'm sorry i missed you guys on the last day, however as a Metro Officer I had to work a protest so I was not able to make it to school that evening. I really enjoyed meeting you all, feel free to give me a call if you would like my number is 702-917-9981. Thanks guys for all of the cool information that you shared with me. And thank you professor Lynch for all you gave to the students, from the heart. You care.


I landed a job with what I learned. Great teacher but not if you want to be spoon fed the book or if you do not want to learn the subject. I admit to taking two summer courses at once, so the B...my fault not profs. Did talk too much start of term about things but explained.

Hello Professor.
I just thought I would send you an email, just to say that I am very happy that I was one of your students, you have made me realize about myself, my sourroundings, and just the way of life is.. you have taught me a lot and I don't plan on forgetting any of it. I just wanna say thank you for everything. Its not goodbye, its cya later :)
Salam (that is goodbye and welcome in Arabic)

A great semester! I have enjoyed the class tremendously and I did not dread attending as each Tuesday. I was in fear of the class, but he made us relax, learn and grow. I have walked away with knowledge. I did really enjoy the history that he incorporated in the class.


Professor Lynch,
You're an excellent teacher.  Thanks so much for a great class.  You are passionate about this subject and it shows in your teaching.  I learned a lot about getting a message across to an individual or an audience properly.
It takes a lot to do for little pay but you care about your profession and are very, very good at teaching it.
 I like that you recognized when students needed a little extra encouragement and inspired the class to get involved and help each other out.  If anyone were to ask me if they should take your class, I would tell them 'Absolutely YES! He is a great teacher!'
Take care and good luck,

Very friendly man, encourges students to do their greatest, and is very knowledgeable on a great deal of subjects. Greatest and best teacher I have had so far. Not for everyone as he uses examples from history, politics and other things. great prof. for shy people who are nervous about taking a speech course and those who want to do well in other courses.

So far you have been my most interesting/knowledgeable teacher since my start at CSN, one of the few teachers I'd actually prefer to listen to over being required to, then again that probably was your main goal as a communications teacher. 

Thank you for a great semester! I have enjoyed your class tremendously and I did not dread attending as each Tuesday I have walked away with knowledge of some kind.  I did really enjoy the history that you incorporated in the class (guess that means I am getting or am Old). I also have mentioned you to 4 students who need to take 101.  One of them works at bch in the ER dept she has her LPN and is going back for her RN. Our children attend school together.  The other few I am good friend with. So I hope you will have a exciting class in the fall but as you know the spring Boulder City class of 2010 is the best and for some reason our personalities seem to click. Again thank you .

Dear Art,

I was doing some research over the weekend and came across your thesis on Screen Actors Guild and the Performers Alliance online.  It is very interesting and I enjoyed the historical snapshot of that period of time.  Thanks for putting it out there.

Thank you very much, Dr. Lynch for, being so supportive and helpful for the entire semester. I enjoyed and learned so much both about giving speech and stuff that my classmates presented to the class.
Today, a friend asked for my opinion regarding your class. I told her that if she really wanted to learn and ready to put in effort, she wouldn't be disappointed; otherwise, stay away from your class at all costs.
I really had an awesome time during the course and I actually felt a little strange when I realized that it was over. Everyone was wonderful and I think you did such a terrific job.

Thanks again,
Kawin

Gives you a chance to build from your mistakes from your speeches. Every speech he requires more of what you should be learning, thus the last speech is the toughest. Doesn’t require a bunch of busy work. Puts his effort on speeches not lecture time BUT that means YOU MUST be responsable for the book info that is on the mid term and final

Mr. Lynch,

I intend to write a strong positive formal letter for you when I am not groggy. I just logged in to see my grade on the Final. I am surprised I did so well but truthfully I did study for days on end. My reason for surprise is not that I did not understand or grasp the materiel but the way my brain functions at this time in my life is a frustrating thing to me. I struggle with short term memory and focus. Perhaps I just got out of the habit on focus but the menopause is too real and in my opinion too invasive into my life.

Now that I understand the speech disipline more I am inspired to say things to my friends and co workers that I did not feel confident to do in the past.

More later,...
Sincerely,
Marilyn Cruson


Great teacher who knows his material. I would advise those who aren't comfortable in public speaking to take him because he makes it easier for you. There is work to be done in class and chapters to read that will be explained in the syllabus. Attend class and get involved. An simple A if you're willing to do the work, still a great prof..

Hi first of all I wanted to thank you I really enjoyed being in your class. I haven't been in school in four years so I was kind off nervous, but I have to say it wasn't bad at all. I also wanted to tell you that I already put to use what I learned in your class, long story short my husband's boss asked him to make a presentation on why the company should pay for his college and how they would benefit from it. So basically I helped him put together a persuasive speech, we don't know the result yet but he was very impressed.

Worth sticking out. Grades easier than he pretends all term. Friendships form and class can be fun if you stick it out and give it a chance. greaexam teacher so far at CSN or UNLV. Don't let his trying to scare you get to you, it is worth staying to the end of the term and getting a great grade.

Hey Art,
     I took your class in January and I promised that I'd update you when my baby was born. I was the pregnant woman that looked like I'd pop any time.  Well, Nicholas was due March 13th, but came two weeks early. He was born February 28th at 10:10pm. He was 7 pounds, 5 ounces and 19 inches long. He has a full head of dark brown hair and blue/grey eyes. Sorry I didn't e-mail sooner, but things have been crazy as is to be expected with a new baby. I hope you and your wife are doing well. Again I want to let you know that I really enjoyed taking your class and still use what we learned in my everyday life. I believe your class really helped me as both a communicator and a listener. Thanks!

Well, my number one goal is to get into the Nursing program at UNLV. The number two goal is to graduate with honors. The nursing program requires me to have high grades in certain biology classes while just getting at least a B in other disciplines. For some reason, I didn't realize our class was a +/- grade class. Because of that, I just
Focused on making my Microbiology class a B+ instead of a B. I know it seems like I really dropped the ball but I scored a 98.2% on my Microbiology final, pushing my grade up from a B to a B+.
A good friend of mine mentioned something to me. He mentioned how many Korean families tend to teach their kids that life was a ladder. You have to keep climbing. Once you get to the top, everything will come--marriage, career, education, and success. Life however is not like that ladder. It's like a balance. If you try to put everything on one side, then the other side will completely fall apart. Also, if that one thing you depend in life on falls apart, you have absolutely nothing--quite similar to that whole "all your eggs in one basket." In other words, balance is key.

That's what I thought about when I realized after speaking to a Nursing counselor at UNLV. She said to focus on my Biology classes, not having Honors. It stinks because a lot of the reasons I took courses was to learn a lot, not just because they were required. Now I feel as though I am pushed to focus more on certain areas more than others (microbiology, chemistry, etc.). I'm waiting to find out how I did in my Macroeconomics class. I'm wondering if I
Dropped the ball in there too. -.-;

On another note, we always remember that the more difficult the path is, the more you'll be happy when you reach your destination. It seems like you have a lot going on in your life but at the same time, I know for strong people like us, we always find ways to persevere. Whether it's true or not, always tell yourself "if you tried your best, you'd be the best." You're going to do great and when people see your name, "Art Lynch", they will think of the many accomplishments you've made.
Regardless of what my stupid counselor said, when people will judge me, I know they will not remember an A in 4-5 of my classes, rather they'll remember the C I got a couple years ago in my Pizza Dough Roughing class. We always have to do our best to be balanced (the C is representation of the one mistakes I make in life, not the literal C).
This lady is obviously messing with my balance!

Thanks for your nice words. I've been fortunate to have a lot of successful people say kind words to me and constantly encouraging me towards success. If it wasn't for those
people, I know I wouldn't be so strong.

Such a relief the semester is over. Now find myself with free time and
little idea of where to spend it. Summer school is a bust, the classes I
need, full. I had enrolled in the class in Spain through June. Not
enough people singed up so the class was canceled, but only after we
purchased airfare. So now we're “stuck” going to Europe for a month
without any particular place to be. Should be some summer. Good way to
wind down after the semester. Speaking of semesters, it was good working
with you. Tough but good. An afterthought, I should have signed the
picture of Amy Tan signing the playbill. If you want that signature,
drop me a line, anytime. Thanks, and don't let the Microsoft getcha down.

Hi Art,

I have totally enjoyed the 4 weeks in your class, and it has helped
tremendously in my realizing that I can even TAKE this class (just signing up was terrifying :) due to my absolute paranoia of public speaking.

It boils down to a time crunch, and biting off more than I can deal with.  You are a great instructor, and have truly inspired me to keep up with current affairs, AND to have an opinion.

I hope to sign up for your class again, but not sure when.  I am still taking precalculus and evolutionary biology this semester.

 Please remove my name from the 9/26 (Wednesday, 09:30am class) #2 slot, for the
demo speech.


Happy autumn, and thanks again,

Angela Pitt, RN BSN


I would just like to say that I have enjoyed this class very much. I started out this term taking this class only because it was a requirement. However, my views have changed since then and now I look forward to coming to class. I have made friends with several people in the class and I think that the group of students as a whole have great chemistry. I really appreciate your availability on WebCT for help. I especially found this helpful for my informative speech and I just want to thank you for all of your help. This has been a wonderful experience for me and I do feel that I have improved my public speaking skills because of this course.

Thanks for everything, 
Caitlin Saladino

Art Lynch is and always has been a professional. I have known him personally for over 25 years. In that time he has been a successful marketer, a steadfast supporter of the arts, particularly theater and motion picture arts, an educator, and an announcer. It has been said of great men that when you speak to them you leave feeling that you were the only two people in the room. Art shares some of those talents. Friends and associates great and small can count on his loyalty, and his willingness to work hard on those things that he has committed himself to. If your project requires an honest assessment of it's strengths and it's weaknesses, Art Lynch is someone you want on your team.

Hi Mr. Lynch!,


Great to hear from you!

Your new website is looking good.


Thanks for checking up on me! Everything is beyond great, and it just keeps getting better. A general update: I transferred to UNLV in Fall of 2008 and decided to double major in English and Psychology. I expect to graduate with my Bachelor's in Psychology at the end of Summer 2010, and with my Bachelor's in English in the Spring of 2011.


Meanwhile, I joined Dr. Kim Barchard's Emotional Intelligence psychology lab as a Research Assistant this semester to get some research experience in the direction of graduate studies in Psychology. As to which direction in Psychology, I am still unsure. Probably Clinical, perhaps Educational, but I just wish Extra-Sensory Perception had more credibility (I loved that movie “Vibes” with Cyndi Lauper and Jeff Goldblum!). Anyway, I would definitely appreciate a letter of recommendation. I think I will be applying to graduate schools by the end of this year for Fall 2011, but I'm still sorting out the details. Is it OK if I take a rain-check for now and get back with you in the very near future?


I'll keep in touch and let you know when I have my own website up (hopefully sooner than later).


Thanks again!
