biology was a tougher course styll but like it was lit with the stories. also mans just need to pay attention and study the textbook and you should be fine for tests and stuff (which is the hardest thing to do in her class). the assignments and labs bless u straight up do well and those and you're catching bare 90s

One of the best teachers at Applewood. I had her for both grade 10 science and grade 11 chemistry. She's a very knowledge teacher and also very fun to be around.

Ms. Tan is a an excellent teacher, very knowledgeable and very helpful. Personally, I slacked the entire semester which is why I ended up in 60s. However, study hard and do your work, and go see her if you're unsure about something, because she is always willing to help.

She seems to know what it is she teaches, but because she isn't so good with English, she can be hard to understand. She can also get a bit rambly, and is very repetitive.

She was a good teacher for the most part. It was odd being taught evolution by a hardline christian, she definitely injected as much creationism and anti-evolution information as she could

She certainly knows what she's talking about. I can tell from the way she explains things. However, she can be unreasonable sometimes. Other than that, she's a very nice teacher. :)

I only had her in grade 11 but she is one nice lady. People should be more nice to her AND her accent is confusing at all, I can understand her just fine. Oh yeah..she prepares us fully on the tests and exams, just pay attention and you can get like 100%
