I don’t mean to be rude by asking this, but I just wanted to get some insight on this controversial topic:
Even though every professor is different, some of them go above and beyond when it comes to helping out their students, while others are only focused on their paycheck. It’s the cold hard truth that isn’t easy to talk about.
The official definition of a teacher/professor is: a person who helps their students acquire knowledge, competence, or virtue.
Even though it’s the student’s responsibility to improve as they learn more and more, the person teaching is supposed to be there for them whenever they need help, without helping too much, rather than only focusing on getting through the semester.
On an extra note, class size is another factor. Smaller classes with 20 students or less may be easier for professors to handle (one on one assistance) when compared to larger classes of 50-100+ students.
