The tests had nothing to do with what was discussed in class through lecture. She has strong political beliefs and does not like or listen to the other side. Bad.

During a pandemic she is not very understanding. I missed one exam and she was rude to me for the rest of the semester. Dont understand how she gets away with how she talks to students.

Comment:
I'm taking Sociology with her online this semester. Political beliefs are irrelevant; she IS entitled to her own opinion. She hasn't forced her own ideologies in any way. She admits when she's wrong and she's respectful. She is responsive to messages; I haven't had major problems with her. Her class is easy, just do the discussions and readings.

Comment:
I had her for Marriage and Family online. If you don't share the same opinions as her, good luck. Test questions are bias so make sure you listen to her opinion if you want a decent grade. She is very unprofessional and I'm not sure how she has a job. It's not her job to shove her opinion down your throat. TAKE A DIFFERENT PROFESSOR IF POSSIBLE!!

Comment:
For starters she is definitively a liberal. I have take two of her classes. I definitely had to put the work in to get a A. Interestingly she said she was a Christian. I am not sure how she quite reconciles that with some of her views. I took both classes online and she was just about always sure to comment on some view she or disagreed with.

I have taken 2 of Ms. K's courses-one online and one face to face and in both of these types of courses she was engaging, helpful, and very knowledgeable about her field. Her love for sociology and teaching is obvious! She has high expectations for her students and for herself. She expects you to show up and do the work and learn! Makes it fun.

Comment:
Helen is crazy, but its what made her class fun. Lecture was interesting and had a lot of class discussion. Helen is very liberal but as long as gou dont bring up Trump she will discuss different views. Test were hard but not impossible to pass her class. Im a bad test taker but I still managed to get a C and only ready half the material.

Comment:
Have had 2 different classes with her. She is kind of rude in the way that she talks to people that she feels made a mistake. Very liberal point of view which isn't necessarily a problem, except if you don't have the same view your grade will take a dive and she even verbally attacked me on my view point on a grade opinion assignment. Not impressed

Comment:
Not a very nice person, I did a lot of extra credit for her class and she didn't put any of it in the gradebook and when I asked her about it she ignored me, whenever I asked for help in her class she was nothing but rude. I highly recommend not taking her as a teacher, all around a very rude lady.

Comment:
I took two of her classes once upon a time. She swears often and is a far left liberal. It was also one of the strangest atmospheres I've ever been in during a class, only word to describe it is cult-like. I was very uncomfortable in her class. She is pretty much the epitome of what you can expect from NIACC professors.

RUN! Stay far away from her. Plan on getting your grade up with assignments? Not gonna happen, I think I had 2 total assignments. Based mainly on tests over 2-3 chapters that you learn in a few days, mainly names of people and what they did. And that is all the tests are about, people and their pointless achievements. I do not recommend her one bit

Helen is an angel. In my opinion, she's arguably the best instructor at NIACC. She is the sweetest, most understanding instructor I've ever had. She's very smart and knows her field very well. Most importantly, she knows how to make the subject fun for everybody and brings out the inner fire in us all. Quite simply the best they come. Take her!!!

Test are EXTREMELY hard she expects you to know every detail covering about 2 or 3 chapters of a time. If you don't attend class you will get points taken away. No homework opportunity available grade is based on tests scores.

HORRIBLE TEACHER!!! I was diagnosed with a heart condition and before that I missed about a week and was in the hospital, I brought her a drs note and she refused to accept it and failed me at midterm, even though I had a B in the class prior to that. Run far away from her. She has no compassion and her views are pushed on you.

I took all of karamitros' classes at NIACC, intro to soc, marriage & family, and social problems. She is an excellent teacher with a lot of life experience and knows her stuff. She is VERY opinionated but loves to hear students opinions on subjects as well. All in all, take her classes.

Great prof and I learned a lot from both of the classes (Intro to Soc and Marriage and Family) I took from her. If you can't handle a "real" college class and don't like reading you may want to skip out.
