These are delightful-sounding short pieces, with very clear Classical era influences. 
The first one, with the mix of triplets, seems to be a sort of practice in keeping time. 
The second one, a practice on left hand tone control -- with all the chords in there. 
The third one - my favourite - reminds me a little of Mozart's K.545 3rd movement (not the tune, but the general concept of the piece). Feels like an exercise on clarity. 

Nice work!

Thanks a lot!! You actually got me! These were the main reasons, but I would add that each Rondo is focused on stacatto practice too and the first one is focused on phrasing too.

Hey! 

On the first piece I felt that the transitions were a bit abrupt. I would like to see some small transitional passages instead of cadencesm so that it doesn't chop up the flow of the piece.

The second one as better, and the last one I feel is the best. I guess it shows your improvement as a composer from one piece to the other.

Cheers!

Delightful pieces. Nice to see a brevity of material. 

A few things to consider:

I'd really like to see you explore more contrapuntal textures within your work. You have an excellent control of melody. Developing textures that add depth to your melodic/thematic/motivic ideas would greatly increase the scope of your works. These pieces are good examples of this need.

The first rondo could benefit from more variety in the accompaniment patterns. I'd consider breaking up the overall 8th note pulse that you rely on throughout this movement. Also could be an excellent chance to explore placing the melodic material in other areas of the instruments range?

The second rondo is a little more varied in terms of the accompaniment patterns. Again, I would consider adding some depth with the addition of some contrapuntal material. This would definitely delineate the various sections and add more interest here.

The third rondo is perhaps the best of the set. The sections clearly interplay but... also are independent enough to stand alone. 

I'd like to see this fleshed out a bit -and expanded just a tad.
