I highly recommend her! One of the best math teachers!
Pros-
A lot of examples and very clear notes. She's sweet and knowledgable, always ready to help you improve. She answers your mios very quickly and has open office hours. If you're failing, she will try to boost your grade during the final exam.
Cons-
Tough exams and a lot of webworks! Do all the work she assigned and you should pass. Class is very boring. No phones.

Had her for cal 1. I liked her as a teacher her notes were very clear but I found the tests some what hard at times. She also boosts grades a lot so that's good ! Gives a lot of Webwork which count and homework which don't count for marks. Although she might come off abit reserved and to herself she truly is very kind and you could tell she loves to teach! You can definetly pass this class with her as a teacher if you put in the work !

She is really a good teacher. Her notes are clear and she does a lot of examples in class which help you to understand what you are learning. She always answer your MIOs and she does it really quickly. I always got an answer 5-15 min right after I sent her a MIO. However, she gives a lot of webworks to do. But if you do them, you'll be fine and you'll have a high grade. I really recommend her!

She isn't as easy as a teacher as everyone says. When class average is less than 50, I'm pretty positive it's the teacher and not every single student. She is very stubborn, and in all honesty, she doesn't explain well at all. She confuses us by making very useless jokes than end up making us think wrong things. Calculus shouldn't be as hard as she makes it to be.

Had her for Linear Algerbra. Her explanations are clear, and she does easy examples in class so that students understand the material thoroughly. If you do the homework regularly and understand it, you'll find her tests easy. Do not rely solely on the webworks and class examples.

Pros, Very organized teacher with a amazingly clear notes, tests are for the most part are easy and fair
Cons, No cellphones, class can get relatively boring because it's just copying from the board, a lot of proofs on the tests but if you understand well it shouldn't be a problem.
Overall great teacher, can easily get above 80%. Would recommend.

Do not listen to the bad comments about this teacher over hear! She is a wonderful teacher, very organized, very helpful and knowledgeable. I wish all my teacher had organized notes likes hers. Her tests are fair however you have to do lots of questions in the textbook. I would recommend her to everyone! Plus she does not do a lot of mistakes in class people are exaggerating, she does all the calculations in her head its fair enough that she might do one or two mistakes sometimes!!

Very emotional teacher, almost started criyng because people were using their phones. She just cant stand when someone does not listen to her and does something else. Beside that she is a good teacher and her notes are very useful for the exams. However she makes a lot of mistakes in her calculations and the class has to correct her. Also she can get boring at times. Overall good teacher with fair exams would recommend.

her notes and techniques for teaching are among the best I've experienced. that being said, she makes a tremendous amount of mistakes, and by this i mean every class, and this confuses everyone, which is reflected upon the tests. she is a good teacher but she only gives 2 tests and they are worth so much, which is kind of unfair ! she has her pros and cons... not the best teacher but not the worst. ps i never failed a class in mylife until alhan

She makes A LOT of mistakes. Also her class is useless because she does not answer questions..(her answer is always I already covered that). If you solve problems different ways than her own, she gives you a zero! (Even if the procedure and answer are right). She did not teach me anything and I needed a tutor to pass her class with barely a 60. Do yourselves a favor and STAY AWAY from this teacher or you will have a long and painful semester always trying to catch up.

She basically built my foundation in math which I am now using in university. Don't miss a chance of taking her. Doing all the problems she asks to do and webworks pretty much prepares you for the exam. Her exams are not hard at all if you practice enough. I wish McGill Math teachers were as clear as she is!

she practically failed my whole class... i barely passed with a 60. she is a very hard marker. she explains well but when it comes to her tests and exams.. wow its disastrously hard. and she gives a huge amount of webworks that are impossible to do. then she changes the due dates for the webworks so if youre last minute forget it youll fail the webwork.. and she still counts it even after changing the date and not even advising you! i wouldnt recommend her!!!
