I am in the U.S., writing an anonymous review for my professor. In the middle of some other praises of her, I am thinking to write the following:
She was always very nice and open to questions.
By "nice", I want to say that she was always very polite and made an effort to seem interested.
Can "nice" be misunderstood here? Is there a better word to use?
I do not want to actually use the words "she was very polite and made an effort to seem interested", as they are too specific; my impression of her is just overall that she was very "nice".
