Ms. Gorven is one of the nicest and most thoughtful teachers in the school. She comprehends problems that students have and tries her best to help teach that concept thoroughly. She takes her time with lessons and gives a fair amount of time to complete assignments. Whenever you need extra help, she is always willing to support you and give feedback on assignments to help you improve in the future. My only complaint is that she marks very hard, despite trying really hard to get a good mark!

I liked Mrs. Gorven. She's caring and very knowledgeable on what she is teaching. I don't know why people are saying she marks really hard - she seemed to mark fairly when I had her (I got an 87% in her class). One thing I really loved about her is her helpfulness. Whenever I give her any of my written work to edit, she analyzes it thoroughly and helps me improve it. She truly wants to help her students succeed. By the end of the semester, I could say that I got better at English because of her.

To be honest, she's a decent woman but i really hated her as a teacher. i didn't like the approach she took in teaching and the way she tends to judge her students before really getting to know them.

I never found her hard at all, a lot of people just aren't willing to put in any work b/c they're required to take the course. She really loves what she teaches and it shows! She was awesome =)
