I love her! Her grading is very fair and the tests are easy as well as she prepares you for it. Her webworks are really long, one after each class, but it helps for practice. She cares about her students and she will always extend the ww if needed. She is very helpful one on one. Her teaching method is amazing and i loved going to her classes. 10000% recommend. Go for her, take her whenever possible dont miss your chance!! The final was easy as well, assignments & classwork help!!
Galyna is such a nice teacher, but soo savage in a nice way. She is that kind of a teacher who will directly tell you what she thinks about you and she gives a lot of examples for you to understand the theory. Her webworks are not so long if you keep yourself up to date. Her teaching methods are just amazing compared to my cal 1 and cal 2 experiences :( I really love going to her classes and she is very caring as well :)
4th week in and she gave us 185 webwork question. Enjoy.
Really great Ukrainian lady who is super knowledgeable in math. Her tests are easy if you do the WEBWORKS and she loves telling off students who don't do their work. Be prepared to hear " NO TALKING" "GO TO THE BOARD" "YOU NO DO VEBVOKS, YOU FAIL THE TEST, I SEE YOU NEXT SEMESTER". If you need help with webworks ill hook you up with a guy named H.P, he can do every question with his eyes closed.
She is actually very nice and cares about her students. She doesn't give a ton of Webworks for no reason. It's because she knows most student don't have the textbook, but she still wants you to succeed. Her tests aren't the easiest, but they are easy if you do your Webworks.
I took Professor Feshchenko for Cal 2 and did not regret it. It was a very hard course, but with her notes and clear examples, I found it definitely do-able. She gives a lot of webworks (way too many, and all at once in a bombardment of webworks), but they definitely prepared you well for her evaluations and tests. Overall a very good teacher
DONT DO IT!!! webworks non stop with pop quizes and long tests. doesnt explain and rushes over topics. if you miss one class you will almost never have the time to catch up. She is the devil
Tests are easy if you understand every question from test review on webwork. Exam was a breeze. This teacher is the best math teacher in vanier, but she is tough. Would be hard to keep up with this class if you take 7 courses.
This teacher is absolutely amazing. Yes it's true, she's gives a lot of webworks (650+ questions), but the only reason she does so is because she wants you to learn and understand the material perfectly. The only way to do well is to practice. Also, she extends them, so don't worry. She gives pop quizzes to make sure you don't slack off. She makes you go to the board and solve a problem, which at first was intimidating, but you get used to it. She wants you to do well in her class, and will help
Very smart & good teacher. Comes off as very serious & scary, but is actually very nice & caring. Assigns A LOT of WebWorks (600+ for cal II, worth 7%), but the questions aren't harder than the ones given on the tests or exams, so it's good practice. She 's sometimes unclear on the board, but if you don't understand she always has office hours before & after each class and is especially helpful one-on-one. Picks on people to go to the board which = nerve-wracking! Very good teacher overall.
She knows her stuff and organized when teaching the class content. Her flaws are multiple WebWork assignments open at once (like 15). Whenever she doesn't want to complete a problem on a board, she'll ask the same students to finish them on the board. She's a tough, but fair marker. It is sometimes hard to understand when she talks because of her East European accent. She is there for her students. Tons of textbook problems done in class and given as homework. Just work hard.
Let's just say you will have mixed feelings of her for the most part of the semester. She is tough and gives a TON of WebWork's assignments. Sometimes when you ask her a question, she will say, "look in your notes" instead of helping. However, she does spend a lot of time in her office trying to help students, explains things very orderly, and is well organized. Also, expect to go to the board to write questions. She can be quite mean/funny sometimes when students or she herself make mistakes.
BEST MATH TEACHER AT VANIER. I took her for cal 1 and 2. in the beginning, she seems strict and mean but as you get to know her she is really nice. she gives ALOT of webwork and assignments but if you do them all you will do really good in her class for sure. her tests are exactly like the webwork questions. I would recommend her to anyone.
Best math teacher at vanier! I took her for cal 1 and cal 2. Great teacher. Get ready to work really hard in her class. She gives LOTS of work especially webwork! Her tests are literally the webworks so if you do them you are going to have a good grade. She is a fair marker. Be sure to attend every class. I would definitely take her again if I can
Attendance is mandatory, assignments are heavy, Webworks are even heavier(40 problems per set every week). Quizzes and tests are easy, you can make up for lost marks. Personality like that of an evil Russian ex-boot camp instructor straight out of a Cold War movie; tough love, and easily amused by humiliating her students so the very least she does will seem like a gift to you, e.g. cancelling a quiz that was planned right after the final.
She really knows how to teach and what she's talking about. Once you get used to her teaching method, succeeding is not an obstacle. She takes questions and is very caring. She picks on the 'smartasses' and always makes the class laugh. Be prepared for a lot of webworks. They are the reason I didn't have to study for tests. Her tests are also exactly what you learn in class. Attendance is really important. I would take her every semester if I could!
TOUGH LOVE- I mean it; heavy work load, attendance is mandatory, you will have to go to the board if caught spacing out, talking, stretching in class or late. 600 problems on Webwork throughout the semester graphing assignments which take about 8 hours to do(no shortcut) exercises in the books. The work in her class amounted all of the work from my other science courses put together tenfold. Her humor comes from humiliating students. She's definitely the idealized Russian boot camp instructor.
She is an amazing teacher but the course load is heavy.However,even though she assigns a lot of work the exercises and practices help you achieve throughout the whole semester. She's a really good teacher and she's really funny which makes you want to learn and pay attention in her class.
She's evil, gives out heavy work loads, 40 webworks per week on average which don't count for a lot but necessary for the final to count for 100% of what it's supposed to count for, and if you happened, by bad luck, to not do well or make mistakes, she will diminish you to a lesser being and the very least expectations will seem as if they are gifts from her(attempts to pass you for doing more work than everyone else, claim a cancelled quiz due to lack of time as her Christmas gift to you).
Honestly, She is the best teacher I have ever had, If you ever want to learn something in math, Take her she is honestly the best and is extremeley nice. Some people may complain that there is alot of work, Truth is there is,but at the end of the course you feel like you actually learnt something. however she is the best and nicest teacher I have ever taken, She makes you good at math. I took her for cal 1 and now for cal 2, I am going to take her for my next two classes.
She is really Good person, she is helpful, funny and easy.if you fail with here then there is something wrong with you.REAL HELPFUL FOR THE FIRST YEAR STUDENTS!
She is the best teacher ever!!!!!!!!!!!!! she is so easy, our class average was like 90% . I really liked here because she send you to bored if you don't understand and help you as you do it, she gave
Best teacher at Vanier!!!. Those people who have bad ratings; they are LAZY. She always help her students. She gives a lot of webwork and assignment but it's all to prepare the student for the final.
Gave us a LOT ( like 25 of them ) of assignments which were very helpful for preparing for the FINAL exam :)
Taken her for Cal I Generally a very good teacher. Very helpful at office hour. She tries to help everyone and pay attention to everyone. You have to do a lot of homework and assignments. They don't r
Excellent Teacher. Her exams are very similar to her assignments.
galyna is one of the best teachers i've ever had. you have to work really hard in her class (webwork!) but she cares for her students and is always there to explan and answer questions for you.
She is an amazing math teacher! Take her if possible! She assigns alot of homework and webwork but it's worth doing bcuz her tests are wtv she covered! And she is always there to help!
Best math teacher at Vanier.Take her u wont regret it besides doing a LOT of howmeworks (trademarks:Webworks). She's a funny and friendly teacher. She sent u to board if u dont understand.TAKE HER!!
Very good teacher. Prepares you well for later on. I had her for Cal I and Cal II and compared to others, she's teaches well. Afterall, it's fun going to the board!
Amazing teacher, best math teacher in Vanier ! I would enjoy taking her math class again !
Everyone got a 100% for the tests...and most people got more than 90 for the final.
I was in her class in cal 1 and 2 and I'm planning to take her back this semester for linear algebra! A lot of homework but at least you learn somthing ! U should know vthis..Clear that?! yes orr not?
Good teacher but too easy!! You will get bored because the course is too easy but if you're lucky enough, you get to go to the board!!
So much to say...you will learn everything u need to know about math...and properly. If you don't understand, she has office hours practially everyday and helps! Lots of Webwork (e.g 50 numbers)
BEST MATH TEACHER EVER! SHE EXPLAINS EVERYTHING VERY CLEARLY. IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE SHE WILL PUSH YOU TO UNDERSTAND. LOT'S OF HOMEWORK BUT IF YOU DO THEM YOU WILL PASS FOR SURE.
Best math teacher ever! She is always willing to help you!
She gives a lot of homeworks....but if you do 'em ...you'll pass for sure.
She gives a lot of work, but in the end, it's really worth it because you learn so much.
I don't know what everyone sees in her. I find she really isn't clear at all and its difficult to understand her.alot of homework because it helps but its hard to do it becuase she isn't clear at all
She is nice,good teacher for people who attend every classes of her,do homeworks(quite a lots than other math classes)xtra helpful.DONT take her if you dont want lots HW or pass easy without much work
She's a good teacher, but she does give a lot of work. DO NOT FAIL ANY TEST because she'll be on your back by saying U WANT TO TAKE THIS CLASS AGAIN DO WHAT YOURE DOING!
Explains fairly clearly and gives lots of work. A weird sense of humor. Not motivating at all and mocks students frequently. Exams are technical (write exactly what she tells you to write) and long.
very funny and i love when her cell phone starts ringing
best teacher! its funny the way she says: very intrestingg
if your able to do half the hw you will pass but if you do all ull get an 80.dont even blink during class cuz u learn so much.shes funny even if she doesnt mean to be. remeber the words IM SORRY
easy and funny, and im sorry but going to the board is not embarassing, especially with her, she does give a lot of homework but her exams are easy
easy class, seems hard while you're doing it but if ypou keep up and do the work the tests seem really easy. And if you dont want to go to the board, tell her you're supersick, works like a charm
Best teacher ever, i did not study and i pass her first TEST with a great mark. If you are NOT Russian or white avoid her at all cost. I am so so happy she is my teacher. Keep up the good work Galyna!
omg I did 5 classes with her and everytime I go in this class I want to leave ASAP. When the class is over I have the worst headaches ever. The worst russian accent...french people avoid...I'm french!
Very good teacher for Cal 2-3. The people giving a rating of 1-2 are probably Math Models student.
Hard to catch her in her office. Hard marker. To pass her class, you must devote all of your time to her class. She thinks her class is the most important and is inconsiderate of the amount of homework she gives.
obviously those who rated this teacher anything less than a 5 are lazy students. Its impossible to fail with her if you do the homework. I agree, she does give an amount close to infinity. Even if you dont do it all, its still an easy class. Cal 3 was a breeze with her.
she's a good teacher,hard marker and if you don;t know the formaulas then you're gonna fail.But very good teacher never learnt more from any other math teacher.If you dont want to do hmk,go to class,or study avoid this teacher.
The best teacher ever, the students who are failing with her are the ones who are brain damage.
oh my god, exam is super easy. i did not do much homework but i think i got high mark. homework is not necessary for getting high mark
scarely at beginning but easy later on. class is hard but test is very easy. try to take and stay with her
she is the best teacher in vanier. At the beginning of semester, she looks scare and mean and hard class but you will know she is the best teacher. don't drop it, you will find it easy later on. Trust me
your heart is always in your throat when you're in her class... you never knw when she'll pick on you to go to the board and do the question infront of the whole class.. but she is very nice.. she cares about her students a lot.. she doesnt want to fail anybody.. i had cla1 with her.. and i was failling her class at the beggining ... but she passed me at the end with an 88%... i was sooo shocked.. she chooses the best mark (class average or final exam) as your final mark. she is a MUST TAKE.....
i lovvve her she is the best math teacher i have ever had. should sooo take her
very good and funny teacher. lots of work but its really not so bad.
Oh my god, you have to take ms. Feshchenko, if only for her hilariously altered phrases: "Vot are you doing? Clear that? Go to the board, please. Stop the talking. I have no wishes to do this. Hi guys, how was the homework." She is also a very good teacher; she makes sure everyone understands perfectly, and believe me, with the amount of exercises you get as homework, you will! Great accent, great method of teaching, try hard and you'll pass easy.
By far one of the best teachers ever! her accent is amazing :) and shes always willing to help, and will answer your question 300 times until she's sure you understand. I was horrible in high school math and i passed with a 75 and i really didnt work that hard . Shes the nicest! You'll be going to the board often, but its so worth it
For sure, explains so clear and always cares about her students. VERY BEST!
Honestly, I was petrified of her the first day of class, but anyone can see what a nice and caring teacher she is. I had more homework in her class than any other, but it is worth it. Her teaching method is a bit strict but you get used to it and laugh about it later.
she's is a good teacher. she gives a lot of homework but it really helps prepare you for the tests. she loves sending people to the board to do the problems. she is a great teacher and she makes sure that you understand, all you have to do is ask for help.
She should teach Vanier math teachers how to be great math teachers because she is one of the best teachers i have every had in math;she is also one of the best teachers i have ever had in general.you know what the homework may be long but you know what you dont go to school to listen to your ipod.Also she knows her stuff and keeps a calm class she knows how to be strict and make everyone like math.
Clear that????Vot are you doing??Stop the talking...Erase everything...Go to the board...Lol..ur gonna hear that a lot from her...just do the homework,come to class and don't be late..you will surely pass
omg, she is thee best math teacher!! but her homework are LONG!! prepare to give away your weekends!! and, everytime i go to class, im afraid of her!! HAHA!! but she's really helpful and makes sure you understand.
She likes sending people up to the board. So if you want to be a math teacher some day and want to prepare for it, take her. Good teacher and helpful, but strict.
I love when she says"clear?ya?" to be honest she is great =D
lots of homwork, she is strict but one of the most amazing teachers i have had...she is always willing to help...but don't be lazy...she is a very good teacher...just always remember to do the homeworks and the assignments.
Best teacher ever puts the teachers of quebec teachers to shame ;)
very clear, very organized and very willing to help. u don't need to be good in math to do well with her.
Guys if you want to work hard and have a good mark don't pass by her. She is one of the best teacher that one can't have. She is amazing and very helpful. She is always in her office to help them and even she cuts her own hours to help the students. I RECOMEND STRONGLY TO TAKE THIS TEACHER. TAKE HER
DO NOT TAKE if you dont like doing homework everyday, if you dont like going to the board, if you are sometimes late, she will punish you for it. take another teacher at all costs.
She is great! I mean when u take her u will know the material for sure! She gives you many assignments that prepare you for her tests that are not hard but not easy. If you do all the assignments, you'll pass with a mark higher than 80% for sure! Definately recommended for Cal 1! I never liked math until I attended her class! A strict yet at times funny
Extremly good. She never got bug by me asking questions after class. always willing to help. makes her classes enjoyable. good sense of humor. if your laxy and you miss a lot of class don't take her. she's very strict but is really nice. you get the feeling that she really wants her student to succede. i'll take her again if i can
What an amazing teacher. She gives lots of homework, but it's worth it. Wants to make sure the whole class passes with really good marks. Great sense of humour.
No Talkings.. Come to the boadz ! I love her accent, she's a great teacher but she keeps teaching till the last class!! Final exam was easyyy !
GREAT TEACHER! Take her! One of the best math teachers ever! Explains really welland gives enough notes. Cares 4 her students and makes sure u understand.
AWWWSOME TAKE HER THE FIRST CHANCE YOU GET! she will make sure you understand, or she will scream at you!
excellent, made me love maths & I got incredible grades though I'm lousy in it usually. The work's worth it and she really makes sure u understand b4 proceeding
Teacher gives too much work, if you have a full course load brace yourself. Test are a bit too long compared to other teachers. She's good for ppl who are lazy.
The best teacher i have ever had. SHe made me love math! She is strict and gives lots of hw, but trust me its worth it, if you do them youll get 80 and UP!TAKE!
Strict tough teacher. Doesnt want u 2 fail. Failed every test but still passed becuz she cares about her students. Definate Take if you are ready to work!
Amazing teacher, I'm not that good in math and i got a 95% VERY helpful, LOTS of homework, but it's helpful! Beware, she seems scary and mean at first!
Best math teacher, doesnt stop teaching til she is sure u understand
