She can teach biology great. She's a really hard marker. She barely gives marks marks at all. She's like a robot, your answer is either right or wrong no in between. She doesnt understand student very well and people do bad in test and do really bad in labs. For Grade 11, the first unit was the easiest, dont let her fool you, it gets harder after (she marks harder, tests get harder). All Ill say is that she doesnt care for you but she can teach well very.

I had Ms.Phung for both grade 11 and grade 12 bio and I really enjoyed her classes! She's always willing to help and will re-explain whatever you come to her with. Putting in the effort to ask questions and taking notes is the key to success in her class. She marks with a very high sense of purpose, expecting almost university level detail in her short answer questions to receive full marks, but if you can get through it, you'll be infinitely more prepared for university level biology courses.

She is an amazing teacher, absolutely love her. She is always extremely willing to help. She teaches extremely well and is easy to understand. But, the marks are rather low due to her hard marking/tests. But, you will learn a lot in her class, she definitely prepares you for the future if you are taking sciences.

My favourite teacher in the school, she explains everything thoroughly and she is always patient when you ask her questions. If you pay attention in class and study the notes she gave you, you would find the test really easy. I love her.

Ms.Phung does not follow TDSB curriculum expectations.Being a TDSB course, it should be expected that ONLY the curriculum's standards are followed when marking and creating tests.Her unreasonably difficult tests go against the curriculum: AVOID HER!!

Great teacher, though rather difficult (however, her difficulty prepares students for university). Explains concepts very clearly, is very knowledgeable, and helps when you ask for help. Unlike some other teachers, Ms. Phung will answer questions, no matter how many times you ask them. To conclude, she is an excellent teacher.

Great teacher. Made everything fun and enjoyable. More human than some other teachers I know. Tests are not that hard, just have to be specific. Its bio, what do you expect?

very low marks, you have no idea what she wants on a test, u can probably write an encyclopedia article for one of her short answer questions and still not get the full mark

Very challenging teacher that expects you to take her class like a university course. The highest mark for one of her classes was like 80-82. Marks very hard and you have to be EXTREMELY specific in order to get any marks.

Very good teacher. Explains all the concepts thoroughly and makes a tedious subject interesting (somewhat). The only problem is she's a marking dictator and her tests are University style. It really prepares you for it though

Gives a lot of information. if you study for a test, don't memorize off the text, actually understand the concepts cause she tends to change things from the text.
