Nicest teacher I've ever met. She gives you peppermints on fridays. Her exams are quite hard though, but she's helpful and super available. Be prepared to work hard, she really wants you to understand the material, so doing more than just the numbers in the textbook is highly recommended. Overall she's a super sweet person, and a great teacher.

She's demanding but funny. When you ask her a question, she'll answer so you can figure out the answer really by yourself.

She is very interesting in class, even though she can be disorganized. This teacher wants you to pass and will help you out, but she will sometimes be very enigmatic in her answers(wants you to figure it out yourself). Tests are quite difficult, you cannot possibly expect to get a good grade without completely understading the material, only doing the homeworks will not be sufficient. At the end, you will have understood chemistry for real, not just memorized it. Overall, she is a good teacher.

Great, nice and funny. Classes are enjoyable and you will never be put under stress. However, she is not clear and it may happen that she tells you something and that she marks this same thing wrong in your lab report or homework (it was not what she ment...) She is a great teacher, but not for you R-score-freak students.

Amazing experienced and passionate chemistry teacher. Seriously, you cannot care for your student's success more than she does. HOWEVER, her exams are HARD, and you better work really hard.
