People can say whatever they want, but Diane is by far one of the best teachers i have encountered. My first biology class ever was with Diane, and I knew absolutely nothing about biology, nothing at all. She made me become so smart that bio 2,3,4 were a breeze. People may say she's rude, late, arrogant, but truth is, it's simply her character. It doesn't take away of how well this teacher teaches and explains things, and if you actually want to put in some effort, you will have no problem @ all
She's very clear. She tells you what's important for tests of you are paying attention you will notice her cues. She's a hard marker. From spelling and little things she will take marks off which is annoying! She can be rude and have an attitude a lot but you can tell she's a nice woman on the inside.
She's a very friendly, helpful and accommodating instructor. KIDDINGshe's the worst. she's rude, she's always late for tests, she's intimidating and she's paranoid. A bit of a sociopath.
Diane is an amazing teacher. Very knowledgeable and she makes understanding biology so easy. She is a no nonsense lady though. I will recommend her for bio 100%
She is okay.. just okay... There are many other better teachers out there. She doesn't give any homework which is great. Only 2 quizzes, 2 class tests, one final exam and 1 lab tests. She is however the rudest teacher ever. She is a hard grader. Tough on us. She does not give our exams back so she might grade it wrong and we wont know about it.
This woman is ridiculous. She is the rudest person I've ever met in my life. Never answers your questions unless its with another question. Always late for exams. Completely psychotic when it comes to writing tests. I don't know what stressed me out more; the test or her always looking over my shoulder to make sure I'm not cheating. She's a good teacher, but I'm sure you could find a better one who treats students with respect. We're people, not animals.
This woman's always late -- I took her course during the F2014 and we started all our class and lab tests 20 to 40 minutes late (and i'm not exaggerating); she doesn't give extra time at the end, says you shouldn't need it.She's also paranoid about how you behave during an examination; will sometimes watch you over the shoulder and then ask why you highlighted this particular word/ phrase, why aren't you using color pencils, etc. tests are hardQuite a bit of crucial information is always missing
For a&p fall 2014. Loved her! Seems cold at first,but she's a wonderful woman! If she sees you're doing bad in her class she will meet with you to see whats going on and will offer her help.Very funny! Clear! Concise! You do need to learn stuff by heart, especially check your spelling. In class,whats important she will say it many times, so pay attention! Dont study last minute! And study well her diagrams, she loves them!
She is a great teacher! in her class you don't need to memorize things, you know the logic between things. her clarity and brevity help you understand better. her notes are the reflction of her wisdom, concise, to the point, and organized in a loveable way. as to her personality, she has great humor and charm.she is a very warm-hearted person; don't be scared by her coldness in appearance. i love her very much and i learn a lot of things in her class
If you are going to go into any program in Uni requiring anatomy or physiology, Diane will make your transition a breeze. You will literally know 75% of the first year material. She is very clear, gives clear notes, her exams are VERY fair although she's tough with grading (for your own good). As long as you're working on her subject she will never be mean to you, but if you slack she'll let you know she doesn't appreciate it. She's the sweetest prof in Dawson once u get to know her. TAKE HER.
can be intimidating, asking questions one on one will be a good idea.
She is completely psychotic but I loved her anyways!!
you cant ask her anything, she assumes that you know it and will oppress you, be ready to work hard. And ppl please dont say she's funny, because that means you never laughed in your life.
Take her anatomy course if you plan to do medicine at university. It's great preparation.
If you like fooling around in class and want easy marks don't take her. If you want a good background in Biology so you do well at university take her. The best teacher I had.
Very nice person. Don't be fooled by the tough exterior because she truly is a nice person and if your respectful you'll be treated in the same manner. Tests are very fair but watch your spelling ;)
might seem to be cold from the outside but is warm from the in side, she might seem unaproachable but trust me she is, shes a not bad teacher overall, she really knows her stuff
One of the best teachers I know. She has a weird personality but as a teacher she really is amazing! HARD MARKER.
can be a bit scarry but she's nice and very helpful. I learned a lot in her class. Good teacher
She explains really well. Study w/e is on the class notes and you'll do fine. u must be weak to think that she's mean or depressing cuz she's really nice, helpful and funny
She is an excellent teacher. I really learned a lot with her. She explains very clearly and gives a lot of useful learning material. Her tests can be dificult but if you study her notes and the handouts and read the instructions in the test, you will not have any problem.
If you are into sarcastic mood take this teacher. Her lectures are very interesting but she is a VERY hard marker. I like her. She can be scary too, but she is nice.
Very interesting. Sarcastic and funny. Strongly recommended.One of the BEST!!
AMAZING TEACHER!!!! soooo helpful her exams are only from her class notes and her diagrams. she only teaches on the board. for office hrs she is very helpfull.
study her notes nad the diagrams in the book and thats all you need. Her notes are so complete!
You really have to work. She's a pretty hard marker. really study and you'll do fine
She explains really well and she is very organized! read your notes beforehand and look carefully at the diagrams in the book and you'll understand perfectly!
Great teacher!! Keep up your readings throughout the semester & she will really help with the rest. Very cool, great sense of humor.
She's one of the best teachers I've ever had. Explains well, approachable person ....just cool.
she explains things well, she's fair and really sarcastic and funny
you can do well if she likes you, which is not easy! I am a strong student in every other class but cant succeed with her because she marks by name, not cool!
