13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
she is very easy to approach and ask questions
Flexibility
Professor Lau was a really great and fun speech professor. She understood all the material and made things easy for us to understand when it came to tests.
She has fun with the subject she teaches and in no way makes it boring
She was very knowledgeable about the topic she was teaching and she made every effort to get class participation and showed concern when she saw that students weren't in class. She was a very fun and personable teacher.
Her strengths were knowing the subject very well and making sure that all the students participated.
She made the class fun as well as educational.
Very organized and knows the material well. Has a heart for interantional students. Encourages a great learning environment
She knows her subject very well. We can always ask questions if there is something that we do not understand. Her class is a lot of fun and she gets people to participate with various group activities. She grades very fairly and she is extremely friendly.
Great teacher, very passionate.
I have attempted to take a speech class a couple other times at KCC and had to drop out of them due do reasons beyond my control. I've found that those other teachers were not very nice, did not provide a good learning atmosphere, and expected too much of the students. Mrs. Lau, however, has been the exact opposite. She is very nice and she makes learning how to speak in public fun. I have actually become more confident because of this class. The class doesn't ask too much but I still have learnt so much.
She was a nice teacher but sometimes was strict as well.
She's great at teaching her lesson plans without making it boring and makes it easy to relate to her, she also tries hard to relate to us so we can have a better understanding of the topic :)
-personable teacher -provided real-life examples to which we could relate the subjects to
Very knowledgable!
She does a good job keeping the class interesting with her projects
I liked the atmosphere of her class. Students can ask her questions easily. I could feel she cared students.
She was very clear with teaching and she made learning very engaging and fun.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none :)
None
None
To use the grade book on Laulima more.
Nothing
None, the class was great.
I don't like having to navigate through a powerpoint during a speech.
There is not much to change, but she could talk a little slower. Sometimes she says things really fast and we can't always write things we need to know down. We can always ask her to repeat, but sometimes its already the next slide.
No changes, I loved this class! :)
Nothing, this class was awesome!!
Great class! Don't change anything!
Try not to focus so much on physical appearance in her teachings. Some students might take it the wrong way.
I wanted her to speak slowly. Sometimes, it was too hard to take notes.
None
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she would ask questions and have us email her for help
Patience and understanding
She is very caring for her students and helps them if their are having a difficult time.
She takes the time to meet with you and suggest things that you can improve on in order to get a good grade in the class
She would email us when she saw that students weren't coming to class and informed us that class attendance mattered.
She wanted the students to succeed.
She was understanding and always helped us in any way she could.
She made adjustments when necessary and encrouages students to do their best
She genuinely cares about her students. We can always go to her at the end of class to ask questions. I'm not sure about concern with things like tests and getting in touch with her because I've never have to ask anything or email anything to her before.
Sharing personal stories to relate to us.
She has definitely showed concern for me by being a little lenient when I have not done an assignment by giving me extra time. She definitely encouraged me when I had no materials for my speech due to technical problems. She was very understanding of the individual students problems.
She was always available to email outside of class and eventhough she has a baby to take care of, she always promptly responded
-reminders to due dates to ensure we turn in on time
Emailed class about attendance as well as in class
By encouraging them to do well.
She e-mailed us occasionally to remind us what to do. Her feedback of the presentation was very helpful and showed her concern.
She took consideration of our personal life.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes, she is a great teacher
Yes
Yes, I definitely would recommend her.
Of course, she makes speaking in front of class easy for those who do not have expertise in doing so
Yes, because she creates a very good learning environment and atmosphere to learn. She knows how to teach a class and not just lecture but get participation from students.
Yes I would recommend her to other students because she makes class more enjoyable.
Yes, she's a great teacher and there's a lot that you can learn from her.
yes. Because shes fun
I would recommend her because the class is really fun. Time flies really fast, so it feels like your not learning, but you are. If any one needs an extra class, then I would recommend that they take this one because they would learn a lot and have fun while doing it.
Yes! Great teacher, hehe.
Yes, I would. I think she is a very good teacher and very supportive.
Yes, I enjoyed the class and I would definitely tell my friends.

keep doing what you are doing and everything will be okay :)
None
She's is really good teacher for all the reasons I listed above.
You're a great teacher, keep up the good work!
no
She is a very good teacher and she teaches very well. Her classes are great and there is never a dull moment. Even if she talks a little fast, at least it keeps you on your feet and always listening. I would take her again.
You're pretty.
She's very personable and likeable. She knows that this is an required class for all students, but shell still tries to make it as enjoyable as possible :)
Nice, easy to talk to & very understanding
It would be more helpful if she could tell us what we should do during the speech, such as what kind of gestures we should use or how to make Power Point clearly.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
great at communicating which is very appropriate for the subject matter that is being taught.
She can relate to students in a way that makes sense.
Ability to make the subject relative to everyday life
She is very informed and makes the class fun by providing activities to participate in.
The way she talks
Engaging, keeps you attentative
Professor Lau is flexible and friendly to her students
She's fun and encouraging towards her student's. A pretty calm teacher I would say, but other than that, I'd recommend any new students that need to take a speech class should take her.
Julie was a very effective teacher, she obviously knew the course material and enjoyed teaching it very much. Her excitement passed to us as a class and she also knew how to get everyone in the class to work together and not be judgmental of one another. Getting up in front of the class and presenting yourself is always a scary subject for many students, her calm demeanor and expansive knowledge of "group settings" allowed for all the students to realize they were in the same situation together. Julie assisted in this conclusion by maintaining control of the class by putting herself on the same level and guiding the class by relating to them. Her ice breakers helped us get involved with each other so that we understood one another. Her teaching and lectures were always thorough, and she was enlightening on many subjects if the student listened accordingly. She was also approachable and always understanding of extenuating circumstances. I am thankful I got her as a teacher this semester.
She is very kind and she makes the class laugh and makes taking the class fun. This is what a teacher should be.
Very encouraging and knowledgeable. Easy to communicate with in and out of class.
She cares about her students and has a passion in teaching in her field of study
I think the way she's organized the class was good. The amount of speeches required and the number of tests felt appropriate.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none that i can think of at the moment
Nothing
Everything is perfect
no changes
Not much I have to say about her.
The only criticism I have is garnering more time for presentations, but this is mostly out of her control as there is only so much time in the semester to accomplish all of what the school board asks of her.
none
none
no changes at all
Felt like everything was good.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
was always very communicative with students and was willing to work with students.
She would check up on students and was available during her office hours.
Willingness to adjust plans, easy to contact
She always kept us informed and made sure that we were ready for our speeches.
I could just felt she cared of her students.
Talking stories, drawing connections
Professor Lau cared for her students by being friendly and accepting. However when students were not willing to work with her (for their own benefit) Professor Lau did not force them to participate and did the respectable thing by doing her job to the utmost best of her abilities.
She graded tests, groups and individual projects fairly, but if you miss one project or test,you are guarantee to fail the class.
Julie was always willing to listen and communicate thoroughly the issues at hand. She was supportive in every students plight and properly gave suggestions while also showing patience with students that were slow at grabbing the task at hand.
she would help the students if you ask for help. She is very encouraging.
Talked to student if there was any concerns regarding work/test/speech.
she relates a lot of her information with situations where her student's can relate to
Yes, she showed concern. She often sends emails with her concerns.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes most definitely. great and fun learning environment. wish every teacher was that way.
Yes because she is funny and one of the best teachers here.
Yes, classes are fun and engaging
I would definitely recommend Julie Lau to other students because she makes speech class fun and comfortable.
I recommend. Because she is good at teaching.
Yes, fun and entertaining class. Able to learn many things
Yes, it is a fun and interesting class taught by a fun and interesting teacher
Yes I would recommend new students to take her. If they're having a hard time picking out a speech class instructor, take her because she is an instructor that everyone should enjoy having.
Julie is undoubtedly on my recommendation list. I have listed many reasons above and all of them are exactly why. Supportive, knowledgeable, patient, understanding and strong. She will obviously be a great mother to her recent child.
yes she is very kind and encouraging and the class is fun
Yes. Very fun class.
yes, because she is awesome
Yes, she seems very comfortable teaching SP 151. She's nice, down to earth, but also authoritative when necessary.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
not much else. Julie is awesome.
She brings participation out of people and you can pretty much be yourself.
Before I took Julie Lau's speech class, I was very hesitant and uncomfortable with speaking in front of a class. Now, I feel more confident in my public speaking skills, all thanks to Julie Lau.
Thank you so much

17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Thank for a wonderful semester. I was scared to take this class because I am terrified of public speaking so I kind of held off taking this class for a while but I am glad I finally did! You are truly a great teacher! You made me get over my fear of public speaking! You made public speaking fun, entertaining and very enjoyable for me.
great teacher

I am quite amazed at how willing Julie is to teach her class. She had a baby this semester, and she was back in class after only missing two or three sessions. Once i figured out she was pregnant, I thought I was going to be in for some major mood swings and general grouchy behavior. I was shocked at how calm she remained up until she had her baby. Sheʻs awesome.
None

Nothing but a great teacher !

14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None really.
Nothing
She moves a little quickly during lectures.
absolutely NOTHING!
No changes necessary.
Slow pace down for note taking.
Maybe encourage students from other sides of the class to partner up more, it seemed like each circle of people stayed to themselves.
None.
Maybe conduct a few more speeches
speak slower when giving the lectures.
I would say it will be better if Ms Kim could speak slow down a little bit will be so much better for the international students.
possibly go through the slides a little slower.
None!
spread out the last two speeches. it seemed a little rushed for me towards the end of the semester. but your the teacher and I respect the way you run your class.
The only change would be for her to speak a little slower when lecturing.
The class is great just the way it is.
Maybe she should speak a little bit slower.
I have no suggestions for her she does her job very well.
none
I don't have any suggest. the class was really good.
Class is pretty fast, but other than that, everything is good to me
More group speeches
Honestly, none.
None at all!!
Nothing.
No changes
None.
No need
Nothing, she's the best speech teacher!
I liked it, but I lost 10 poits when I was absent and that was no bueno.
Nothing, she is an amazing teacher.
Julie can slow down when giving us lessons. She moves on too fast and I don't always have a chance to get all the information.
Allow 3 absences before lowering students' grades.
NOTHING! I love her class.
Maybe sometimes a little too personal with students talking about drinking and partying.
Maybe she should make powerpoint slide slowly which students can write them.
I recommend that Julie should go slower on her powerpoints slides. She should put them online and she should give us a study guide for our tests.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She would talk to us a lot, and was understanding when assignments had to be turned in a day late.
Profeesor Kim give us a lot of chances to practise speech skill.
She asks students if they are prepared for upcoming assignments and projects. Reminds you to be ready to present to the class.
she would email me if she was concerned about my grade or anything for that matter. she is easy to talk to so you don't feel intimidated if you have to bring a concern up to her as well.
She helps the foreign students to enunciate their words.
Mostly through email and teacher to student inquiry.
Pick you out in front of the class to answer a question if u weren't participating.
Reminding us of test dates and reminding us what we should study to succeed on the test.
She is quick to answer emails regarding assignments, and is very clear when explaining project details. She is always open to questions in class as well.
She was available outside of class.
She would offer help whenever a student would ask, she was lenient and fair as well
She asked all of us questions and made sure that we understood the materials covered.
she always try give other opportunities to make up an assignment if its missed.
She will always answer the questions that students give
Always being available when students are in need of help.
yes always told us when the tests were. helped us when ever we needed help
She would always give others chances to take tests in the testing center just in case they missed class that day.
She always tells her students to come to class and she tells her students if you did bad on an exam or speech you can still get a good grade and just need to do better on the next exam or speech. She also informs us on how many points our exam or speech is out of.
She is willing to help her students.
Julie always showed concern by interacting with all students and periodically checking with them to see if they were on track.
she was willing to give us time to do our assignments, and if we were to turn them in late, she was understanding and didnt give us a hard time. she gives chances to her students so that they dont have to fail such an easy class.
I'm internetional students so English skill is worse than Native English speaker. But she came to students and ask me I could understand or not.
She makes everyone give their opinion when we have activities. I think it's important for students who are afraid of make a speech in front of people.
By giving chances for us to earn extra credit.
giving extra time to do speeches when absent or not ready
She spoke with students whenever they needed assistance
She would always work with the students if they have any questions or special concerns. She is flexible to the students needs and allows us to even present speeches in the way we most feel comfortable (powerpoint, websites, whatever creative notions we may have).
When she saw that a speech did not go well with students, she told them what they needed to fix. This goes for myself aswell.
Emails us and always asks us if we have any questions. Reminds us of any assignments that is coming up. Welcomes us to visit her during her office hours if we need any help or if we have any concerns. She really cares for her students! More teachers should be like her!
If we showed concern or needed help on something she would provide aid.
She worked us through our fear of public speaking by giving positive encouragement.
She is a good teacher.
she sends email to make sure everyone is doing good or not
She would always remind us of assignments that were a huge deal to our grade, and gave us many extra credit opportunities in class. She also had us do a lot of in class activities which kind of made it easier to break out of our comfort zone.
She was always concerned with her students and their grades.
She made sure all questions were asked and that students fully understood the tasks at hand. She also made clear that her door was open to any questions outside of class.
She e-mails her students when they haven't turned in something or because of absence.
She emailed the entire class letting them know that their grades drop if they don't show up to class since our class had a lot of late/no show up type students.
Always emailed reminders and reviewed before tests. She would also ask why certain students were chronically coming late or missing class.
Attendance is important! She makes sure you come to class or else your grade goes DOWN.
She tells the student one on one for their missing assignments and work to turn in if they didn't.
Julie would always asks us if were doing ok. She would always say to email her if we have any questions or help with the course.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The cable classes were interesting and easy to keep up with
The convenience. I really appreciated the lay out of assignments.
She made information about the subject easy to understand.
I enjoyed how we where able to evaluate one another speech and give feedback.
I liked the fact that I was able to take this speech course on-line and through cable lectures.
Because this was a cable class, I was able to watch the cable shows at my own time. Julie Kim would always answer emails as soon as possible.
I liked how the course was designed with the three speeches
I liked that there were 3 different types of speeches that was needed to be done. I also liked that the teacher made drafts as part of a assignment. In the end, I did not procrastinate and fall behind.
I enjoyed doing the team speech, I loved the team that I had.
The speech assignments were fun to record.
I liked the online aspect as it is hard to get in to a class when you're working 2 jobs. I liked the 3 main components of the class and how each covered different topics.
I loved the tv sections of the class Julie kim was so entertaining that it kept you wanting to watch it.
Julie is great to work with. She is quick to respond to your questions.
to be able to watch the lectures, and listen to it while sitting at home. Julie Kim presetation present a good speaker and organizer, making me learnt a lot from her lectures.
The Cable session were very professional. The instructor was always prepare for each topic. I liked the examples she used to explain the topics. She was always very clear.
The recorded lectures were great. Never felt like I was struggling to pay attention. She kept it interesting.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
na
The test they were too hard
If I wasn't able to watch a certain lecture, the online stream would sometimes give me problems.
I experienced difficulty trying to download the video and shrinking it that program is not a friendly user.
I didn't really like the team presentation because it was really hard to meet up with team members because of everyone's different schedules.
I did not like the group aspect of this course. It was very inconvenient to try and work with a group online. I try to stay away from courses that have group work online.
I did not like the team presentation, it is because there was lack of communication.
I did not like how long it took to upload my videos on Connect. I also found the videos a little boring.
Working on creating outlines for the speeches as well as recording the speeches. I also enjoyed the team presentation powerpoint.
Nothing really, I enjoyed this class a lot!
The reading is the only thing i like the least.
The least I liked about this course were the hours of scheduled programming.
I wish a could be able to watch the lectures on youtube at anytime so that I could watch it anywhere with my phone and dont have to watch it at 11pm at night
when I wrote emails for things that i had unclear, sometimes the responses were very short, and I did not see interest in resolving my unclear problems.
I didn't like the group project. Relying on others who may not be as committed was way too stressful.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It was a really good course and I would highly recommend it
I thought the course was interesting. It was set up well and it certainly was a new experience. Mrs Kim does an excellent job in communicating, helping and videos.
Good course but it's a little different from an in-class Speech course.
I enjoyed the course although having the ability to view previous videos would have been much easier.
Overall, this course was welll worth it. I really learned a lot of different things to help me become a better communicator.
I enjoyed this class because I could do everything from home.
very good
I would recommend this course. I learned a lot of giving speeches and being more confident in myself.
I enjoyed it overall.There were little aspects that were confusing, but overall the course was good and I learned a lot.
This class is very fun - you will learn a lot.
that I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt like I gained a lot of knowledge in terms of communication skills. I will definitely be able to use the skill set I learned in both my personal and professional life.
I really enjoyed this class gives me a little more confidence to speak in from of people.
I highly recommend this class to others who experience social anxiety.
It is a very useful and interesting course. I learnt to improve communication on my daily encountering with people
It was a great class. I learned a lot that I know I can use in future careers.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I wouldnt change it! It was easy to follow, work was well laid out
The grading seems to be to strict. For our first time doing speech the should be a little leniency and not be so technical on the little details. Also, the test reminding me of taking the drivers test, the questions seemed too similar to each others. If these things could be fixed it would be much better.
There isn't much to be improved but a better way of obtaining the lectures online would help. There were some bugs with the way the stream behaved on the website.
I enjoy the course but I think they should find a way so that you may go back and review the cable course on t.v. My dvr only allowed a certain amount of time before it was deleted.
I think this course could be improved if they found a way to eliminate the team presentation or revised it in a way that could accommodate the students who aren't able to meet up with their group members.
Maybe put one or two more exams throughout the course. The midterm had too much information in it that it was hard to keep up at times.
I think the teachers could be a little bit more clear on the videos. When I was taking note it was hard to understand the important parts to remember.
Kara Kam-Kalani was the person giving the lectures, but the instructor is Julie Kim which I thought was a little confusing. Maybe stating that very clearly in the beginning of the semester on the syllabus. Other than that it was a good class - not so much in need of improvement.
Nothing to improve to me.
The video format online is mov only Apple products or required you to download more software. Should stream them as mp4. I use a linux computer and of course I was out of the loop on this option. The scheduled programming was extremely early or at late at night.
The group project should be limited to three students per group. Videos should be accepted by e-mail or on laulima itself. McGraw-Hill has a lot of shortcomings and their tech support is weak.
27. Other comments:
na
I think you should ask students from prior classes to use their videos as samples of what one should and shouldn't do. Your welcome to use mine as a "what not to do" hehe! Lets be honest I did very poorly on my first video's. I think a sample video in your syllabus would be great. Also, a fun assignment interacting with one of your videos OR another student would be cool too. I think I would have done much better if I saw other students first only because I had no clue what a speech should look like. Overall I think your great instructor and I found your assistant VERY helpful and pleasant also. I enjoyed your videos, think you do a great job there and very well organized; I appreciated the fact that assignments were done in a manageable order. I have to say this course was very interesting. I'm glad I tried something new. Thank you for a great experience.
N/A
This class showed me it's possible to complete a group project via the internet even though the group members are scattered throughout the State of Hawaii.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She is pretty, she makes you want to talk a lot in class.
This class is very informative.
She knows what her students need to know and not giving too many assignments to stress out students. She covered whatever is important and taught us very well.
knowledgeable with her subject and class activities.
she is very creative with getting the whole class to participate in activities. She knows her subject well and was able to teach it in a fun and meaningful way.
Friendly but still authoritative. Good class activities, they get you thinking and encourage teamwork and aren't always that easy
She is "like" a student, so we can talk and interact with her as we do among our peers. aha! I like her teaching style, very straight forward and she tells us what exactly is going to be on the exam.
She spoke very loudly and gave assignments in a timely manner.
She knows the subject very well, she really cares for her students, is prepared all the time, she is very thorough with her lectures, is always available to help. She is a great asset to KCC. Best teacher I had at this school!
Her ability to deliver the information, and engage the students.
Her relationship with all of her students are good, explains well and allows us to participate in activities
julie keeps the class exciting and she makes you want to come to class. she makes learning fun and easy so the whole class would pay attention and participates. she really can relate to the class and she give everyone equal oppurtunities. her grading system is equal and fair and she gives you chances to bring your grade up. everyone in our class is easy to talk to at the ending of the semester because her enviorment and vibes in class lets your learn in a comfortable like atmosphere.
Julie Kim's strengths as a teacher are her ability to connect with students. By connecting with she is able to encourage students to try and do their best.
She's nice person, she teach different from other teacher maybe because she is young. She talks to all the students, always smiling and teaching with a fun and enjoyable way.
Considerate and makes class fun.
Julie's strengths are definitely her understanding of the subject, helpfulness towards students to do as much as possible to get the students to pass, and is fair to all her students. She pushes us to think for ourselves to understand the material in class by doing activities involving the whole class. They are very interesting and innovative that do the job of teaching the class.
She's a really good teacher. She always gets through her lectures which is via powerpoint. She makes sure everyone is involved in class and that everyone knows what day there speech is. She is really good at getting her points across and she has some good humor when the time comes.
Great personality and fantastic to work with. Very fun teacher who provides assignments that teach lessons in an entertaining way.
She gives good notes in class that prepares us for the test.
Juile is very fun and energetic and she's great at building energy in a classroom. Her class is by far my favorite class because it is so fun and I really like her as a person, she's very personable and easy to talk to. Also she's great at explaining things to people without them feeling stupid. Not to mention her speeches are not extremely nerve-racking. She does a good job of easing the tension, and creating a fun yet calm environment for speeches.
she makes the class fun and educational at the same time
Professor Kim is an outstanding instructor. She relates to the students extremely well. She always provides detailed examples that are relative to us. Her teaching methods were exceptionally effective as she integrates her instructions to our normal everyday lives. She is very friendly to the class and always offer help to us if we were in a struggle. I would highly recommend Professor Kim to any future aspiring students as she made class enjoyable and fun while doing it in a professional mannerism.
Julie is a wonderful lady, is very engaging and connects with all of her students and is definitely not your typical, deadpan professor. She is able to get all of her students to participate by activities and group discussions. Very effective.
Very kind and willing to give chances and help students
Although she might look pretty young for being a teacher, she is very responsible on her course.
making things easy for the class.
She is young so I never feel the Sense of distance with her.
She interacts with the students very well which makes the classroom environment very fun and easy to learn
She did a great job of teaching us communication with lots of hands on activities like speeches or daily events in class where we could re-learn the material we just took notes on in a way that would help us practice and remember it all!
She have a strength that can encourage students to participate in a class. And she can advice correctly in appropriate ways. Also she can create good atmosphere in her lecture to students to learn the major points. She treated her students very fairly also teaching the major with well- organized formats. Personally, she is one of the greatest professor in Hawaii. KCC must keep her.
She makes everyone want to come to class, and has shown us all how easy it can be to comfortably speek in front of an audience of strangers.
She is very enthusistic and always has a smile on her face making the class a warm and hospitable atomsphere.
Julie is awesome. Clear and precise with everything. She is well organized and pushes us as students. The best class I have taken here at KCC. Learned the most in this class then any of my other classes.
she really knew her material well
she is easy to talk to. makes you feel comfortable. explains material so everyone understands.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
To not stutter too much. And to dress more professionally.
It was a straight forward class with no surprises.
Nothing I suggest to Julie because she was my best prof this semester!
none
Maybe give us homework? HEHEHEHEHE!
Speak slower when giving presentation and post presentations online.
None. Don't change anything. Maybe teach other classes if anything.
none
nothing muhc, just to keep her great atttitude in teaching college students.
Maybe be more strict on students chatter in the class. It is distracting to other students and shows lack of respect, especially during a students presentation.
Nothing
There were a couple of guys in the back of the class who were noisy everyday, she should have done more to get them to behave.
NOne
I dont suggest any change towards Julie Kim
No changes.
My only suggestion would be to change your schedule from a tuesday-Thursday class to a M-F class, because that class was by far the most fun class I had. Keep it up Julie!
shes doing great right now
None.
Fairness on grading (sorta). I hate when people do their speech reading them off from the paper on their hands in the presentation.
nothing.
Speak slowly... ...
Nothing at all. I absolutely love her teaching style
Nothing. Everything was great.
I wouldnt change her she does a good job providing all the information we need for test and speeches.
None. She is great! KCC is lucky to have her!
nothing
teach more classes so i can take them!
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
You can always her a question any time, she would give you the time to talk after class.
Julie let us know when everything is due and gave us a heads up when things were due.
Yes. She always noticed us what we need to work on, what are we missing( homeworks etc..), and what we should prepare for. Always giving us enough time to work on the assignmets.
she is willing to help students like brainstorming etc.
I was late to class a few times because i missed the bus, but she was very understanding.
She gives extra credit for participation and class attendance (attendance is always a good extra credit because its easy!)
She always asked if we ever needed help with anything and promptly gave answers when needed.
Always pushed us to do good. Reminded us when things were do. She is a very passionate teacher and it really showed.
be available outside of class even with her tight schedule. answers all her emails, allows us to email work to her.
she dosent want any one to fail and alwaus encourges us to come to class and feel free to ask for her help.
She always encourages students to do their best. She emails students in regards to up coming assignment due dates. She is very willing to answer any questions students have without judgement or a condescending tone. She is genuinely concerned with everyone's success in learning the information, and the doing good one assignments given.
She always message us, letting us know what are we didn't do in her class and always pushing her class to do works.
She stayed after class however long to talk to students. she also had a adequate office hours. She does her best to make sure everybody understands the work and what she wants from the class. I feel that she did that very effectively which made the class more enjoyable and stress free when it came time for speeches.
I wouldn't say she showed concern for her students, which is not really her job. If a student asked for help from her, she was always there to give her word and share some advice!
Allowed students time to make up assignments, met with students before and after class.
Emailed us to remember to do our speech.
She was good at being a "friend", I feel its because she's so young, she's so much more approchable than older teachers.
she always is understanding on assignments that are difficult which is helpful and makes me want to work harder because i respect her so much more
In a way, she is very caring towards us. She made sure each student understood the lessons and assignments clearly and she would take additional time out of her own schedule to help us out.
By allowing us extra credit opportunities and by promptly emailing us when we had questions and concerns.
She gave students extra time on some assignment if needed
She worried about being in class, and making sure everyone gave out their speeches, etc.
she encouraged students to come class.
We always discuss in the class to answer her question. I like that.
She is very understanding when it comes to presentations. If the day of the presentation comes and you're not prepared, Julie will more than likely allow you to go another day or at least till the end of the class period to prepare.
She kept in contact with students outside of class when needed and always responded to emails promptly. Very clear about what she wanted in all of our assignments and kept most the students from slacking or falling behind by being very strict on attendance.
If a students absents a lot, she did a email/call to a students right-away. And she is responsible for each individual students issues especially on email. In her lecture, obviously we had a many essays, in her comments for us (students) was very encourages me to increase the studying evaluate skills.
She emailed me and informed me a was losing points by missing classes and encouraged me to come to class so i would get those points and get an overall good grade.
She pushes us to do better all the time. Reminded us all the time when something was due and made sure we all did good.
she always made sure that we were prepared for our tests and speeches
she emails reminders to students to give us reminders of major up coming assignments. when students are absent she makes sure that they know whats going on.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?

She is the best speech prof in KCC!
i enjoy the class and her attitude towards the class.
She's a fun and nice teacher who will help you learn the art of public speaking.
She is indeed very knowledgeable about the subject.
She is a very nice teacher.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She knew what she was teaching very well and she presented her materials in a clear and effective way. There were many activities that helped students learn the material better.
she is great at giving her materials to the class
she is very good at comunication with students and i think it's very important!!
Encouraging and wanting students to do their best, grading fairly, and being organized.
She understood students very well and made good atomosphere in class. Her explanation was very clear. She encouraged students to study very well. When I asked her something through e-mail, she reaponsed very fast. She did not give negative pressure students, so we could enjoy her class. Some teachers give students too much pressure, which makes students lose motivation or engagement of studing. Instead, she encouraged us to study.
Non Judgmental She made learning fun, to ease up anxieties. She provided clear and comprehensive instructions, I rarely needed to ask her a question twice. She's highly motivated which influenced me a lot. There's so many more strengths about Julie, I can't say enough about her but I will stop here for now.
She is helpful during class as well as outside of class.
She always got the students to participate in activities, asking questions, having the students ask questions.

Motivate more classmates to join group works or class activities.

Perhaps encourage students to focus on their projects. The group projects fall a bit haphazardly due to poor planning skills.

There were some international students in our class. Sometimes teachers don't care of international students, but she did. She encourage us to participate in class. when I did not understand anything, she explained again with easier words.
privately and direct it depends if she is addressing concern to the entire class or to one individual.
