Hard tests. honestly she cant teach but if u ask her a specific question, she is very patient and is willing to explain to u until u completely understand. shes likes me a lot even tho i was getting like 50 or so. so u people saying that she only likes smart students are lying. as long as she sees u trying really hard she will help and like u. even tho i couldnt handle the course and dropped after mid-term. she actually asked me to stay in the class because she sees me trying soooo hard.

She's a nice teacher. However part marks DO NOT EXIST. Additionally, she speaks so softly you can barely hear her. If she hates you. Drop the course.

Really nice, but really hard to learn from. She helps you out if you put in the effort by giving you marks even though your wrong. She favours people. She hardly shows up to class herself so ull get p

Mrs.Smilovici is a very nice and helpful teacher. At the beginning of her course, I didnt study and got really bad marks. I worked hard at the end and i got a good mark and she bumped me up 2%. TY :)

She's the worst teacher. I used to like math up until I had her for calculus. I even took discrete and thought that was better. She looks down at people and she judges people WAY too fast. Some people like her because they think she's a good/easy marker, but seriously I rather have a hard teacher who is fair and can teach than an easy teacher who favours and can't explain herself properly.

how can u people give her such low ratings...she is the best calc teacher i ever had (and the only) she is very helpful when ur stuck on a topic, a very VERY easy marker and a honest person. she have a habbit of getting mad when the class is nonresponsive. a fun teacher to have, if ur taking data or calc, switch to her class

She's an amazing teacher. All these other people keep talking about her mood swings, but they're bitter because they're probably lazy and then expect her to smile and give them an A. She will help you with any problem, but you have to show you're interested. You're the greatest Mrs. S.!

She doesn't seem to like teaching the junior grades. I had her for gr.10 and 12. Hated her the first time, loved her the second time around. She's funny and extremely helpful. Don't be afraid to ask for extra help, she loves it when you do :)

If you do well in her tests, then you'll love her classes. If not, be prepared to hate it. She's willing to 'overlook' small mistakes if the rest of your test is well done, silently though.

After four years of university level math, I still hate stats. It's only because Smilovici made me hate it from day one. How about making learning enjoyable?!

I agree about the mood swings. Adjust your attitude pending on her mood. Knows what she's talking about, which is important.

mood swings. severe ones. if she's happy, you're happy, if she's sad, you're sad. sometimes she goes out of her way to help, which is awesome!
