I believe that her major strengths as a teacher is when she gives us her best way of teaching and understanding of the main subject. I honestly think that she's more than a teacher, she tend to encourage everyone in the class that education and college are the most important way of becoming successful in life. She is so far the best college teacher I've had .Her broad knowledge amaze me, not just in teaching but giving us life lessons that will help us improve on our future.
Teaching is one of her major Strengths! Mrs. Roya is like a mother in class as she teaches. She cares and want us to be successful in life and in the world.

mrs roya was great...theres nothing to change.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she is very concern about us not just about our grades.
She knew when students are failing and told them not to give up and finish the class strong.
She would stay after school and help you with the things you don't understand and ended up having a broad understanding of the subject. She even go to school during off school days just to give us more help.
Mrs. Roya showed concern towards everyone when people don't finish homework and trying to help with things in class and also in out of class that will cause distraction.
She always told us the truth! She spoke the truth! She wanted us to learn new things and always made sure we did our work and she always encourage us to do our best in the class.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Mrs. roya major strength as a teacher was that she always help students when they need help or don't understand the subject.
she was a good teacher and always knew what she was teaching.
Sarcastic, makes students want to listen.
Mrs.Roya Dennis was a great teacher this semester and her strengths were, that she knew what she was doing and she helped me improve my self- management skills.
ENGLISH
Her strengths were that she was always helpful to any student that needed help anytime during the course. And also she knew the subject really well, and that's what made this class really fun.
I believe that Mrs. Roya Dennis was a very responsible teacher at showing us specific details on the handouts that she gave to us. I know that she even wanted the students, including me to know on what day the assignments were due. I respect her for giving us the schedule pack-its on what's happening on our class days.
Her positive attitude, enthusiasm, and support of her students! She made all the difference in my attitude about the class, and was always available to encourage, support, and motivate me when I wanted to "give up" She is definitely one of the best teachers I have ever had! Plus, I learned alot about English, more than I learned in 3 years of high school!! She is an asset to UH, and I will remain in touch with her in the future.
Mrs.Roya strength were telling the student as it is. If she felt they should be told off she would tell them in a sarcasm way.
I like the way she encourage students. To build on their own. She is a very excellent English teacher. I can recommend to the student specially to the student that are out of school for long time and willing to come back to school. She is very easy to talk to .
knowledgeable
As a teacher i think her strengths are being able to keep in touch with students who are in need with help.
shes very enthusiastic about her students.she always had concerns about us.she always say things to us that makes us think of what we want to do for our future
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
students should participate more in class then just to or more students.
I think she's awesome so, NO changes, just do what she been doing?
No changes, because she did a great job teaching this class.
I do not think that there is anything wrong about her.
Have her teach more classes, so I can attend them!
FANTASTIC JOB!
Mrs.Roya is a really good professor she helps with her students only if they ask her for it and she gives them certain amount of chances but what i notice is that she gets really irritated with some of the students when they ask dumb questions but she still a good professor i can be able to turn to her for help when i needed the advice
I can not say anything to her . she is very excellent teacher.
Nothing
nothing
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Mrs.Roya should concern when students lack in their test or don't do their homework.
Somewhat, she just wants us to know what were doing and just do the work without any help so that we learn, but when she teaches it's very clear so us student already understands and need no help because we understand.
She showed us how difficult some assignments could be. She explained to us on what the tests were going to be about. She told us some of the easy ways for us to succeed, properly in english PCC20.
She always looked for the positive, and found ways to support me in my own style of learning, as I have learning disabilities, and other special needs.
IF THEY DIDNT COME TO CLASS SHE WOULD TELL THEM TO TALK TO HER AND HELPT THEM CATCH UP.
She helps them pass the class but the student has to make the effort to meet her half way
She always concern about the student that are not passing their project or homework. She is open to talk regarding on homework.
ask questions and helped us in and out of class
She would address the assignments and their due dates during class. Also email students who were absent.
she would ask us if we needed help.going to each student asking if we needed help
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?

Yes, i do. I recommed all students that have to start from the begining. go to Mrs. Roya Dennis for PCC, she do you proud.
I would recommend her to anyone that is willing to start college in the pre-college level.
Yeah, she's kind of a very understanding person who knows what we students need and how feel. It's kind of like Dr. Phil, except we're in college. She has been a terrific teacher for teaching english that helps me learn english and about it's lessons that helped me learn.
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because she puts the importance on the positive, and with constructive critism shows the students what they can achieve, and through that we realize we can do it!
Yes i would because she was the person i turned to when i wanted to leave class and she gave me advice so yes she is very helpful

She is reliable,dependable,inteligent and being able to know me as a student, as an individual. She always try to different strategies in working with us or with other as groups. She is flexible, active, always happy and ready.

No Changes at all, I just like Ms. Roya to be the same.
Yes. I suggest to her a good teacher. I notice the English class as good.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
her concern for the student, is being able to understand and learning the different ways of doing things. She always tells us not to think negative about us/things.
no comments because i'm fine with her.
she would try to help but if the student didnt want to learn she might give up
She believe's that we can prepare ourselves for our reading and writing so that we may learn different things around the world of different reading and writing.
She could change the schedules because it caused her avoid. However, students was finishing their homework. They gave them to her.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
I recommend her to student because she is a great teacher, well-educated, she know what she teaching. Always on time, she apologize the next about her not being able to make it the yesterday class etc.

16. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
as a teacher i would recommend her to become a high school teacher, she's that good as a influencer
She is a nice and cooler.
mrs. roya, had so many strengths as a teacher she was brave during class, she made us know what we were doing wrong she helps us until we get it showed us how we can commucate w/the book and she gives us goood essay topic
She is always encouraging and understanding of all the circumstances. When there is tough times, she'll make time to help a student out when they have a hard time understanding.
The teacher was good at showing examples for me to follow. She encouraged us to work together in groups and help each other. She will give examples on the board to help understand.
She was very felxiable when we missed class, and gave us time to make up all the missing work.

18. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
i have no idea what changes she needs
I suggest to the teacher more gift homework and hard work.
mrs. roya is a nice and kind she shows a whole lot of love. but if we mess up thats when it sucks for us, well she just needs to clam down on the blamming of student even if we dont o anything
I wouldn't change anytthing. This course is helping to prepare students of what they are expecting to learn in college.
Still need more examples to really help understand. I would like you to control your emotions and not become so angry sometimes. I would like a better attitude -- not a bad attitude. I would like you to not "play" with the grades. You change the grades and it hurts the students. Please don't force us to participate or say something in class. Sometimes students are different and need time and become anxious when you force us to say something. Sometimes I feel like I'm in high school because of how you treat us. You tell us not to party and not to do things and I feel like we are in high school. Students are responsible for their own actions because it is college. We become confused because you change the schedule too much.
Maybe a classroom for your own that is away from all the construction and stuff. that way it will be easier for students to concentrate.
19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
she explains slow and clearly, takes her time and she dont follow her schedule sometimes. it's makes me happy she was my teacher because she listens and think of what that student need help on
She always help us homework,essay and other paper because she knew it well.
mrs. roya would helps us a million times because we dont understand one thing she would talk to us after class if we miss a day she would gadly stay lecture about what we learn on the day before.
The instructor made time for the students who needed more help in any section that she teached us. If a student needed more help she'll tell us where to go and the person to go to.
She always made sure that we knew what was due the next class. If we werent clear about it she would explain it until we understood. She also made one on one time with one of us to encourage us to keep trying and going with her class no matter how hard it may have seemed it is possible to pass.
20. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes, because of her attitude, she has thinking that everyone in the class can pass and become a doctor or something.
She is good teacher because she did taught us anything and try help us success this pass.
i recommend mrs. roya to other student because she is surely a nice person and know when to make you laugh but theirs some parts of her you dont like such as her getting up your ass about something.
This instructor is understanding and patient. I recommend this class to other's who have a hard time changing there learning into a independent. Its for student having a hard time phasing into a college level education. It is different from high school. A student will come out and be accomplish by how many work she had done in a short amount of time. There is a lot of work to do. She is willing to make time for any person in need. The work that is done in there may seem a lot but the time goes by fast.
No, I would not recommend this teacher to other students. Look at the suggestions for change and it explains how I feel.
Yes. I would because she helped me to understand a lot of things about english that i dint learn before. She always was concerened about how we were doing in the class, also she was willing to help us whenever it was needed.
