Avoid taking this instructor if you are a student with any disability. Once she knows this she tries to embarrass you out of class by being demeaning & dismissive. I filled two academic complaints that went unanswered for 6 weeks. When I finally got a response it was "the situation must have resolved itself" because I did not drop the class.

I'm not a math person but I enjoyed & did well in this class. We use My Math Lab which is helpful, you can do the HW as many times as you want to get the best score, & you also have lots of optional practice. You can do quizzes twice & take the best score. On tests you can use a note card with formulas & notes and you drop the lowest test/final

She is a very Awesome teacher, she explains everything very slowly and detailed, she reviews before the tests and if you are happy with your grade you don't have to take the final exam, she is very helpful, she works with you and answers your questions she is very easy going and easy to work with, Take her!

Her class is kind of easy but you wont understand when she explains for the first time. You have to ask for help again. If you are good at math, you will do fine. If not take some other prof.

Easy A if you stay on top of your work. She sends emails every week and answers all questions. Lots of homework and quizzes but all open book. test reviews actually count as much as the tests! This was awful, always got As on tests and Cs on reviews. Midterm & Final proctored are 60% of grade. Uses pearsons mymathlab, costs an additional $90 to use

Good teacher and answers all your questions. If you have a hard time with accents, then you may want to choose another. She gives lots of resources to help study and lets you have a notecard for the test. Statistics is a little boring, so i did watch thte clock, but she tries to make it interesting with group activities.

This was my worst experience as a college student. I would NOT recommend this instructor online. If you don't complete so much as a homework assignment on time you cannot proceed with the course. I was not allowed to take my mid term exam (and I paid to take the course) because I did not recieve 70% on a mid term review. Had to drop as result.

Very nice teacher. She really pushes you to do your best and tries to challenge you. She only grades tests and projects, so you have to work hard on those. You really have to study the material but she allows a note card on the test. Even though she doent grade homework, I would get the book anyway because it has lots of problems you can practice.

All around nice teacher. I missed some lessons and a test and she reopened them in MatLab with no problems. Well organized and keeps the class up to date with regular emails. By far the least painful math class I've taken online in.. forever. Take her if you want to pass a math class.

This class is the hardest class I've taken at SPC yet. If you suck at math and don't have time to study and basically learn the material own your own, don't take her.

She's really a great teacher. The only grades are tests and you really need to go to class if you plan on passing, if you skip, it shows on your grade. she lets you use a notecard on the test which helps A LOT. No final, just a really easy project that also replaces the lowest test score. I personally would take her again.

She's very good. She tells you the very first day if you cant understand her to switch out of her stats class. so if her accent is a problem, you should figure it out then but its not bad. she lets you bring a FLASHCARD to the TEST w whatever you want on it! how can you fail? there is no final exam only a project that replaces you lowest test grade

She moves way too fast in the class, I understand this is college but to tell people that they should know stuff and move on and not explain why. Her test reviews are totally different than her real tests and there are no way to get your grade up as far as classwork or homework. Don't take if weak in math I spent days studying and still failed!!

Her accent makes her hard to understand. I go to the tutoring center 2-4 times per week, just to keep up with her tests. She'll give the minimal response to the classes' questions. She usually does not answer questions directly. She knows the material but is absolutely terrible at explaining it. Good person! Terrible teacher! DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS!

I took Kennedy for Elementary Stats, which I now see was a huge mistake. Her accent makes comprehension impossible, she knows what shes talking about but sucks as explaining it, and doesnt really answer the questions my peers ask. When Id use the online notes to study from, I failed the test. AVOID TAKING HER AT ALL COSTS

I like Prof Kennedy. She has an accent that some may not understand, but she tries her best to speak English and that's commendable. She is VERY blunt and can seem harsh (definitely not for someone who gets offended or self conscious easily); however the woman knows what she's doing and is a proficient instructor if you are willing to pay attention

THIS IS THE HARDEST MATH CLASS I have ever taken.The accent is almost unbearable and she doesn't provide adequate material for test.If you aren't good in math don't take her class. I study faithfully and even bought the mymath lab and i'm still having trouble.

Professor Kennedy means well, but the language barrier is hard. Her tests are A LOT harder than he classwork. I'm generally an A/B student in math and I find myself failing tests even after studying for hours. She makes you feel stupid for asking questions. I wouldn't recommend taking her unless there's no one else available.

Nice but a horrible professor. Her english is hard to understand. Moves too fast. Skipped chapters b/c she felt we should already know material. Believes students learn best from group work, I often leave not understanding material we were ?taught?. Even if the majority of the class doesn?t understand the material, she?ll cont. on to new material.
