5 Star! Outstanding instructor & very informative course. I wasn't sure what to expect when I began this course.However, upon finishing, I feel the instructor helped me to achieve a better understanding of Islam, as opposed to how the media or certain misguided groups portray it.The course is very well organized.I give this course 5 stars and recommend that everyone take it.You will be amazed!

English had never been a subject I enjoyed doing. I did it simply because it was a compulsory subject. However, logging into the English 102 online class, I just didn't want the class to end! The depth of information, the elaborate way it was presented, never ceased to fascinate me.It is simply amazing how Sr. Rasheedah is able to keep her students glued to the screen; you simply feel the vibrancy of the class as if it were a brick and mortar classroom! I am looking forward to being her student again.

Sr Rasheedah is so good (May God preserve her). I find all the classes absolutely amazing. I am greatly indebted to her for the amazing teachings.I love how she teaches.This is the first time I am studying Education as a discipline, and I think the courses are really well designed. I am learning so much; the lessons are so full of gems that I am constantly learning new things and ideas keep coming to me for my adult students too.

I had the privilege of being a student of Sister Rasheedah for Eng 101 & Eng 102.

English 101 covered note-taking skills. The ease and flow Sr. Rasheedah has in teaching English language was tremendous. Note-taking and making short notes for lectures is very important, as it plays an important part when revising study materials or preparing to give lectures.

Sr. Rasheedah, being an educator and having years of teaching and training expertise, taught us a very professional approach for note-taking from lectures, books, and preparatory notes for public speaking.
