Mr. Drew is tougher than most professors at SPC. He'll take off points if your work isn't in the format he specified (even if the answer itself is correct), but it's more about seeing where you went wrong so that he can show you the right way. If you're looking for an easy 'A', look elsewhere. If you want your 'A' to mean something, take Mr. Drew.

MAT 1033 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I took Intermediate Alg. online and it was a disaster. Anytime I would email Prefessor Drew it would take days for him to respond. Specifically one time I told him I was having trouble understanding a problem & his reply (2 days later) was to find a tutor.

Horrible instructor. He is rude when you ask questions. He slaps up entire completed problems then talks the whole time you are rushing to copy it down. Doesn't work through problems step by step. Don't take him unless you can teach yourself.

Mac 1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

SPC really did a number picking this guy. They clearly threw the criteria of "knowing how to teach" "knowing how to work with people" and "common respect for others" out the window because he meets none of them. He's rude, obnoxious, ungracious, and undeserving of a teaching certificate. Avoid this guys class at all cost. Cell Phone May signing out

MAC1140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Worst professor ever. So unprofessional. He is loud, yells at students, EXTREMELY DISRESPECTFUL. It goes beyond my comprehension how a person like him can be a college professor. If you want to do well DO NOT TAKE HIM...If you are late to class by 1 min he'll make you sign a tardy sheet.

MAC 1105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took Mr. Drew for MAC 1033/MAC 1105. He's pretty strict, can somewhat be confusing in lectures and grades harshly on tests, but he wants you to know the material inside & out and show every step possible. He also hates texting and being tardy. If you can follow the rules and study the HW a lot outside of class you'll do fine. I got a B twice.

I took his class two years ago and when ever I want to relate to my "worst college experience" or why I should ALWAYS use rate my professor, I go here. If you want to pass the class- take another teacher! Or suffer and learn for yourselves

MAT1105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Drew is very unprofessional when it comes to teaching; He yelled my grade out in front of the class. He yells at his students and treats them like children in middle school. He is unconsistant with what he says and is a very hard test grader. I've taken math harder than this class but was forced to withdraw because he is so unreasonable.

MAT 1033 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Drew is extremely strict and unwilling to work with students. I read these comments previously before taking his class and figured it would be worth a challenge. I have a standing C right now and cannot bring it up because he marks points off of tests and quizzes for useless reasons. Don't make the same mistake I did by taking his class.

Be prepared to teach yourself the material, or seek outside help to learn anything.

I love math and I'm a good student I always try to find a teacher that will challenge me to learn but not explaining the problems AT ALL is a little much esp. at a beginning level

He was very hard. I dont know about the whole "college" comment below. He was strict and had no mercy. I took another college algebra class and got an A I would have failed his class if I stayed in it. I love math but did not like HIS class at all.

Worst professor I have had in my two years at SPC. Very rude to students and makes you feel stupid for asking questions. I should have dropped class but I did try. Do not take Dr. Drew unless you know the material.

Don't even think about taking this guy for MAT1033, MAC1105, and MAC1140. His way of teaching math will confuse you and you probably ended up struggling his class. If his class is open, wait for another professor.

Do not take this teacher. Even if the subject is easy his teaching methods are vague at best. I am only passing this class because I took the same math course in high school. He has an ego and responds to all questions condescendingly. Teachers should inspire you and challenge you, not look down on you.
