21. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Yes, she definitely did! Whenever someone has a personal problem that affects their performance in the classroom, she is more than happy to work with them one on one. She shows concern and gives her students more opportunities. Linda really takes the time to understand her students better so that she could help them understand the lessons and her class material.
She was very concerned about her students. She took the time we needed and helped each of us attain the unnerving process of over coming the fear of speaking in front of our peers.
She makes it a point to know each student strength and weakness. She is passionate to her teaching.
Constantly asking us if we understand the content and material or if we have questions
When students were still in doubt, Linda took extra time to explain topics and definitions within the text chapters.
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I liked the fact that she is very hands on. Linda does a good job at teaching her students all the lesson plans, and she sends a reminders and a heads up on future deadlines or lesson through via email. I think that's really important for a teacher.
Her style and technique that she brings to class. She believes in her work and is passionate in her field. I enjoyed her style so much, she made me feel so at ease.
We did stretches and breathing before certain class involvement.
I enjoyed the theater aspect that she incorporated with our course material. We did a lot of performance activities.
She was contemporary and began presentation days with stretched and breathing exercises.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Linda is very unique in her teaching skills. She brings all types of different ethics into the classroom. For example, we do yoga and breathing exercises which help us to speak clearly and smoothly during a speech. We do funny dramatic class activities that help us to feel more comfortable with our classmates so that we're not so nervous when all eyes are on us. All of her techniques I believe, have helped me in a major way!
She is the most organized professor I have ever had. She is so knowledgeable and cares about us improving.
Continue to bring your style and passion to class.. it is so valuable to our learning process.
She was clear, direct and informative
Very good teacher. Makes content interesting.
She made sure to add real life scenarios when explaining speech concepts.
24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
I would definitely recommend Linda to other students. I feel like others would enjoy the class just as much as I did. It's a fun class, not boring at all! And the students will really benefit from it for sure.
"She is a great teacher and you will learn a lot!"
Yes definitely
Yes. He personality was very welcoming.
Yes. See answer #23.
I would definitely recommend Linda's class, because she kept students involved and engaged.

Great teacher and great class, I enjoyed everything about it!

21. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She let us choose our times to present, in order for us to fix our schedules to match perfectly for the days we preformed.
She seems acutely aware that she is teaching a class of young adults, with both juvenile and adult concerns, such that her words are carefully chosen. She provides guidance where it is needed but allows each one to shine with his or her own strength. There is always a choice.
She always makes sure we know when the assignments are due and if we have any questions or need help with our speeches we are always welcome to seek help from her.
Dr. Shkreli continuously asked questions that showed concern for the students understanding of materials. She also continually reminded us that she was available for any questions or concerns we had with the materials.
She always responds to emails and sends out reminders about assignments. Always makes time to help her students with problems they have for an assignments.
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I enjoy her enthusiasm and attitude.
In a subdued kind of way, she is always enthusiastic, never timid. She expresses her approval verbally, but disapproves carefully, with a pause. A class lecture is almost like a conversation, where multiple examples and differing opinions are encouraged in order to emphasize a concept.
I really liked how organized she was and how she taught her lectures. She made the material relevant and she was very well educated in her subject. She made the class fun by providing warm ups before speeches to let go of all of the nervous tensions.
Dr. Shkreli made the subject more tolerable then I ever believed a speech class could be.
Although I hated having to present in front of the class, I enjoyed it as well and I think it made me improve on my presenting skills.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is very beautiful and energetic :)
Supportive, friendly, knowledgeable, experienced, confident.
Dr. Shkreli is an exemplary educator. Her concern was clearly the students knowledge and understanding of the materials and she took the time to understand her students as individuals; how they learn, what motivates them.
I enjoyed taking your class.
24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, she makes you want to learn more about the art of speech craft, and she teaches you how to teach yourself, rather than just read from a book.
I learned a lot from her teaching style. With her help, I was able to correct problems with public speaking. Other students should take advantage of this easy way to learn how to relax and communicate better.
Yes. She is a great speech teacher. She is very supportive and makes you feel comfortable when students have to give presentations.
Yes, see question 23 for why.
Yes I would recommend her to other students because sheʻs helpful, understanding, and knows her subject very well.
25. Other comments:
Thank you for the awesome semester, you rock.
I thought I knew how to speak. I learned to listen to myself a bit more. I know better now where to direct my critical focus. In the process, I hope I never lose my non-American accent. But I will put effort in improving elsewhere, perhaps learn to think more in English. Thank you, Ms. Shkreli.

21. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She offered her office hours and we were able to talk with her after class.
she gave time to listen to us
She offers time for students not just during class and during her office hours she also is willing to meet us during our convience. She is am amazing teacher who makes public speaking less of a hardship and such a huge fear for those who fear public speech
She has always put time a side to speak with her students. Linda has always asked the class if we understand our assignments and if we have any concerns.
She was always available via email, phone, and in person. She was always understanding of certain circumstances and overall very friendly and just great.
Miss Linda always made herself helpful to my needs in this class. After class she would answer my questions about the assignments. She respected all of us.
22. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
She teaches out of he box and has a creative fresh style.
Great course! I didn't like the activities she had for us. It was fun but I didn't think it helped me with my speech. Towards the end I dislike that we had the option to do a play instead of speech. If this was an acting or theater class that would be perfect for it but to add it in I didn't agree with it.
she was very positive
She is very energetic and her enthusiasm is wonderful
I understand the course material. The text book was easy to comprehend and follow.
I especially liked how involved she was with the class by getting to know each and everyone of us individually , our strengths and weaknesses. She could teach more effectively this way. There was nothing to dislike. This teacher is the best I've ever had.
I enjoyed the freedom to be unique when I presented my speech. She encouraged me to do better.
23. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She's a great professor just leave out the theater stuff and focus more on speech. For people like myself who dislike standing in front of people.
great teaching approach to speech 151
I would suggest her as a professor to other students like myself who fear speaking in public or in large groups. She gives you a sense of confidence in yourself.
For a fairly new professor she shows great appreciation to be apart of windward community college. Linda also shows a great deal of professionalism. Her spirit is welcoming and most of us have been able to connect with her.
She's an awesome instructor and teaches very effectively!
Miss Linda is an excellent teacher. She makes the class interesting. Allows us to exercise out our nervousness before we present our speech. Very creative skits to do as a class. We get to interact with classmates.
24. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
YES
No. Because I heard of another professor who was much better than her through a friend. I only took this course because it could fit in with my schedule.
great job
I would because I have grown as a speaker and I strongly believe others will as well
Yes.
Yes, I definitely would, because the class was well organized , fun, and always interesting.
Yes, definitely, she is kind, patient, and smart. You can learn a lot from her.
