A very intimidating teacher which can be scary for some but she is a really knowledgeable teacher who really knows her stuff. The class is super easy as long as you listen and do the homework. Make sure not to talk while she's talking and don't be afraid to ask questions as long as you've thought it through. Tests and quizzes are super easy, just make sure you study and listen in class and ask any questions you may have, got an 86 and it was my favorite class this semester.
Incredible teacher. She starts the year tough and motivates students to do well. The course is incredibly packed but she made it easier by creating her notes and you have no need to purchase the textbook. She teaches at Concordia and has had incredible life experiences in her field that makes her one of the best professors I have ever had. I would recommend this teacher any day. I hope that you will have the pleasure to attend her classes.
June Riley is incredibly bright and knows her stuff inside out and backwards, material is mostly easy to learn but there's a lot, exams are always multiple choice. She can be hilariously grumpy sometimes but she's harmless and is a sweetheart. What struck me was her very obvious intelligence and her awareness of the world from an economic perspective. She provides really valuable insight on how to be financially stable and how to make educated decisions,I will remember her macro course forever.
Amazing teacher who really knows her stuff. Dont miss a class and you'll be fine. She really helps you understand it. If you do the hw the tests and exams are a joke.
You have to go to every class. If you miss classes, you won't be up to date and fail. Every class is important. With that said, she explains very well and IF you study, you'll pass the course with 80's! Has quizzes and tests to grade you. She might look mean at first but she really does care for her students.
As a teacher, she is amazing. If you really want to learn something, by all means take her. Just know that she constantly assigns homework and checks if you did it. Most times she forgets that we have other classes and can't always do the assignments. She is in a bad mood MUCH of the time though, and she always says "ask me questions, I won't bite", but every time you do, she makes you feel stupid. Not all the time though, if your question is smart. Overall a good teacher, but a bit rude.
Best teacher at Abbott that I've had so far. On her last class, she gives really good advices for the future about carrier choices and investments. Learned a whole lot with her! Take her if you can, her notes are like 10$ but everything is so crystal clear. Plus, if you plan on going to Concordia, you might see her again.
The best teacher at Abbott. Any hate on this site is because she is strict and students that don't do any work don't like her. But if you do your work and listen you will pass with flying colors. I say again, best teacher at abbott.
if you want high 80's take her
BOSS WOMAN very strict, did amazing, made me love econ.... TAKE HER... GOT IN THE 90S... notes are super clear, already given... no textbook.. takes attendance so don't mess around but you will do amazing
I'm in love with this teacher's speech skills, that's how great she is. Shes extremely knowledgeable and made me like economics, she also is straight to the point with everything. Her class is organized and she gives you advice for your future. TAKE HER if you want to become successful in life.
Shes knowledgeable, a bit of a hot shot. I think she was open for questions after class. Her lectures were useless to attend because they are long and repetitive, she would go too deep in subjects that aren't useful to us, her notes=life. Rants a lot. I believe she was doing all of this to get us to succeed and give us a sort of test drive in the business world, would recommend. STUDY EVERY WORD, because her exams are confusing if you study the night before or aren't studying every night.
She is a crazy woman, but a great teacher. She goes off on annoying rants in the middle of class but her notes are golden! She is the best macro teacher at abbott. Take her!! If u have a 56% at the end of the semeter she will give u a 60%. Dont come in late though she'll yell at me. Also, ALWAYS do ur homework or she will kick u out.
Do yourself a favour and take her if you have the opportunity!
I had her for Macroeconomics and could not have asked for a better teacher.
Her notes are clear and contain everything you need to succeed in this class. Her notes really save you so much time since you never even have to open up a textbook.
She might be a bit intimidating but it makes you work hard in her class and the hard work will really pay off for you.
She really knows her stuff and makes an otherwise difficult course easy!
She's a mean and grumpy old lady, but I have to admit she knows her stuff. She's a good teacher and you leave the class feeling more knowledgeable. Her exams are quite easy if you do your part and study. Downside is just that she's always in a really sour mood and can be down right mean sometimes.
She may seem mean at first but she just wants her students to succeed. Honestly if you read her notes, you can get a 100% in this course. Her exams and quizzes are based exactly off her notes, no surprises and they're multiple choice! If you do your work (study for the 3 tests) you'll get a good mark and you'll actually end up learning stuff from her. If you want to do well in macro, take her!
Best teacher! Take her if you can! Her quizzes and exams are honestly a joke if you know your stuff. Her notes are really helpful if you haven't been paying attention in class. She knows her stuff and explains very well. You can get a great mark if you try!
Going into the commerce program was worth it just to have this teacher. This is the first time in my academic career I feel like I have left the class and learned something that I will definitely use throughout my life. She's extremely clear and helpful and its not a boring class at all! However, sometimes people are afraid to ask her questions in class because she literally looks at you and says what. Super nice when she's alone though!
Best teacher I ever had!!!!
BEST TEACHER! Her notes are amazing and she explains everything super clearly. She may seem mean at first but she wants everyone to do well and she pushes you to do so !! if you want a good macro teacher, she's the one! Loved her!
If you have to take macro, take her. She is amazing.She knows her stuff but you have to do your work. She has no time for people who fool around. Pay attention and you'll do well. She explains so well and her notes are amazing. Highly recommend taking her.
TAKE HER. she knows what she is talking about, no jokes. yes she is strict but its for our own good, she gives you the notes and whats on the exams, she often does reviews. she is helpful. you just have to study and understand the notes and you will be just fine. TAKE HER
No way you can fail her intro to macro class. She literally gives you everything you need to know for the test and makes sure you understand it. You will actually learn something that will be usefull if you get June. Shes strict but knows her stuff.
June is very very tough, but you will be thankful you took her when you see your grade ! Take if you can
This teacher is the best macroeconomics teacher. Trust me. Take her.
Oh June... she is very intimidating at first, but let me tell you you'll be happy you took her. Macro is pretty demanding and she makes sure you're staying up to date with all the material. Her exams are pretty easy and you won't have to study much because she makes you do a little work week to week to stay on top of things. She may seem crazy at times, but you will learn to love her and find it really funny. Do your work, you will have no problem. Go see her in office hours, she's helpful.
June Riley is an amazing macroeconomic teacher!!! She seems a bit intimidating at first and is only strict if people are chatting, but she really wants you to learn and understand the course material. If you do the work you're told and study you will not fail. Her quizzes
She is The best teacher I've ever had ! I really learned so much thanks to this wonderful lady! Take her if you want to go far in life, she helps by guiding you in the real world and warns you about all the financial problems you should avoid in the future. She's amazing, I wish I could take her again.
June knows her stuff more than anyone else. She makes her notes extremely clear and gives relevant examples so that the material is easier to relate to! She is strict about homework however there are no tricks on her exams or quizzes. Everything she tells you to study is on it and if you listen to what she says, you will pass the course with high marks! By far the best macro teacher at Abbott, if you have the opportunity to take her do it!! She has so much knowledge and cares for students
Becomes VERY rude if you ask a question. Basically says "if you're good at math, you're not as smart as people who are not," etc. Very knowledgeable, knows her stuff and is great at explaining. Not a nice person, but you can't fail with her. Do all your work, though.
Although she IS very strict, she's also THE best teacher for macroeconomics. If you do all your work, you'll pass with high marks, and if you don't.... Well, let's just say it will reflect on your grading. I really liked her since she knew her subject and gave notes she made herself to help students understand this difficult and boring subject.
June is probably the best Macro teacher at abbott. She gives you the material in advanced and doesn't require the textbook to be purchased. She knows what she's talking about and teaches the material properly. She makes you work, but it pays off in the end. Make sure to always do your homework on time or else you will be kicked out. DONT TAKE HER IF YOU ARE NOT A HARD WORKER! YOU WONT PASS THE CLASS IF YOU SLACK OFF! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JUNE!
this teacher is CRAZY , BUT for some reason i didnt drop her class because even if shes very rude and very disrespectful (still debating if shes on something), she is very good at what she teaches, she knowsss what shes talking about , and i definitely passed her class.
Honestly best economics teacher! I dint really like her too much and she wasn't the nicest person. But I learned macro really well! Just do the homework and study hard for the test you'll get an amazi
Shes mean but she does know what shes talking about. If you have a hard time with multiple choice exams then DO NOT take her.
At first you're going to want to run for the hills, but stay, and you won't regret it. she makes macro interesting and a lot easier than any of the other teachers make it. take her!
First week of class you're going to be extremely frightened of her but over time you'll realize she just really wants the class to understand. Actually a very smart and clear teacher
She can be scary, but honestly, she really knows her stuff. If you just review the notes, and do the homework, and study the practice exams, you'll do amazing.
She is really scary at first, but she's a good teacher. You have to work REALLY hard to get good grades in this class. It's the most failed class in Social, I failed.
you might think she's rude and evil, but trust me she is an amazing teacher ! you'll ace her class and she makes the material soo easy that you're so prepared for every test and quiz. her notes are ve
She is really strict because she doesn't want any of her students failing her class because she really does care about her students. Plus she made her own notes so you dont have to write any because s
She is very strict and can be rude at times but you will pass if you take her. Do good on the quizzes, they are easy marks to get and will help out if you do bad on an exam. You don't need to take not
Very good teacher. Most of the course is in the coursepack and the exams are multiple choice. I have herd that the other macro classes are much harder so I highly recommend her.
great macro teacher, severe but if you do the work you will for sure pass
I had her for macro and sure it's work but her coursepack has all the notes you'll ever need and they're very clear. She gives some homework but reasonable. Do the work and its an easy 80
June Riley is AMAZING, great notes, she really knows her stuff. She friendly and the tests are easy!
Very experienced, reasonable workload. Pay attention and you'll breeze through this class.
At first, you're probably going to think "wow this woman is friggen mean." but then you realize that all your friends in macro are failing and you're passing. take her, you won't regret it i promise
Dont listen to people who rate her low. She is very experienced, her notes are probably the clearest in the world and shes passionate about teaching. Perfect combo to make the class interesting!!
wanna pass macro? take her. amazing notes and really wants everyone to pass. lots of homework but it's all relevant to the exams and to real life. she's an amazing teacher.
a lot of work, but she is very worth it. if she knows youre trying she will do everything she can to help you succeed and get a good grade in her class. very down to earth (:
a lot of work, doesn't know her students personally.
I love her notes that she provides, if you are this type of person who usually have difficulty to undestand Mathematics and Economy take her! I She may be harsh and try to scare people, but she explains very well and passiona
June Riley is a strict teacher, but gets you through the class. She is one of those teachers that you have to pay attention to and have to get your work done. At the end you will pass even though you'll hate her all semester
great teacher, notes are provided. workload is reasonable and like she said: "in the other section of this course the passing rate is around 60% while in my class its around 90%" i'd take her if i wanted to pass with that 75%
This teacher is underated! I had her for Macro and she provides the notes for you. Her notes are very clear and she explains in class according to them. People might not like her attitude but she is so passionate about economics that she doesn't want to see anyone fail. That's why she's harsh when you don't do your work and kicks you out. NO other macro teacher teaches as clear and as organized as her.
Really average, you have to pay attention and read the notes to pass theres no messing around in this class.
I really liked her! For all that she seems strict she really let our class get by. She teaches your very clearly and precisely -listen, do the homework, the labs, and projects and you're guaranteed to both learn and pass.
Strict sometimes when it comes to homework assignments, but usually wont check. easy quizzes if you pay attention in her class and study for 20 mins the day b4. study like an hour for the 3 tests and u do fine. VERY helpful.
She is really strict in front of the class, but if you go at her office she is a sweetheart! She really prepares you for university also! I liked her!
She is strict, but she makes you understand the course. Her tests are almost identical to her practice ones and all the material is covered, she doesn't try to trick you. She can be a bit mean, but its for a good cause.
Shes actually not as bad as i thought. sure she does kick u out but for a perfectly good reason, u dont do ur stuff or try, then why should she waste her time on u. she can be pretty strict and annoying (knocking anything she doesnt approve of ie: the government and high school teachers). she's funny SOMETIMES and tends to start talking to herself but wtv it gets ppl to laugh. but do ur work and u'll do fine, i never studied for that class and pulled off a 92. read her notes and do homework she checks
She's a good teacher and knows her stuff, but the classes are very boring and hard if you don't pay close attention. She gives a book of all of her notes, so study that and pay attention and you will do fine.
Shes super strict......if your work isn't done your getting kicked out.......BUT she knows her material very well and her teaching methods give you a big advantage towards getting a good mark.....not much homework either......many quizzes though
she'll kick you out if you didnt read up on the homework. but this guarantees you get a 90 or more average.
A strict teacher which is what my Macro class really needed. She knows her material very well and she is always willing to help you. She does kick you out of the class if you didn't study the required pages or did the homework is I think is quite far. Not prepared for the class you have no point being there. Here quizes and tests are fairly easy if you read and understand the material. She is always open with questions and also has rescources at hand to help students. A strict teacher but I good one as well
She is quite strict which is great at keeping the class on task. She is a great teacher and really knows her information. I have her for Macro and she is a great teacher. She knows her information which will be a great help at making all the information clear. Do the work and everything will go fine.
She is very strict and a little intimidating. You sometimes feel scared in her class that she's going to pick on you. Had her for Macro. Overall, she is very well-prepared and she knows the material. As long as you copy the notes, you'll do well. The tests and quizzes are pretty much word for word what her notes are.
She is really strict and she wants things her way...but you cant have it any other way if you want to pass. She is by far one of the best teachers I ever had. I didn't listen in class I just studied her notes and I got over 95%. If you want to pass Macro in one shot take her.
ok...she might be insane...but its worth it...you actually learn something...but talk to her outside of class and she's very nice
One of the best teacher ever, if you're a lazy student TAKE CARE, she'll make you understand a lot of things. She does give huge amount of hw and quizzes but it's for the best. If you aren't ready to spend time in your books then don't take her class, if your serious about school- U'll love her.
If you are serious about learning economics you should take her. You will learn a lot then. Those who want an easy pass, don't even think about taking her. Personally I liked her.
Mrs.Riley cares for your understanding like a MOTHER!You don't have to buy a 100$book,her notes are clearer and better. Just don't slack off like everyone and do what you gotta do.
the worst teacher i had at abbott, she wants to get new friends, she wants to talk to you and get emails lol, even if you work hard if you don't do this you're done....loneliness..
Great teacher, she may be very tough but she knows what she is teaching.If your serious about class then she is highly recommended and she will always help you if you have problems
Very good teacher, explains really well and if you work, you'll pass. She's a little scary andcrazy however.
One of the worst teachers ever, the class is hard and u have to really study or u will be completly lost
One of the most incredible teachers i've ever had. Kindled my interest in economics, she is one of the few teachers who know how to teach it! Highly Recommended!
Good teacher. Bad personality. She knows how to teach and you REALLY have to study, if not, don't think you'll pass her class. Very hard marker
Very good teacher. Very mean, but knows how to teach her class. You HAVE to do the work to pass and show up to every class.
She can be mean, but she is a great teacher. Efficient, and clear. Quizzes are easy, but you'll really have to study for the tests.
Nice if u never flinch in class.Makes u work for ur mark.Lots of quizzes&even gives u practice tests.Do the work&u'll get a good grade!
She knows her stuff!! Tests are not too difficult. She makes you work hard. She is nice if you don't bug her. Notes are done for u.
She is an awesome teacher! Writes great notes that are specific, very helpful. But at times, can be very snarky and harsh towards students.
I realize I should not have said "discusting personality" above. I just think she would be a better economy teacher if she was more open-minded.
The notes are already done for you, just high lite! She's clear but it is a hard course to take! Nice person, even made me pass!
She is a good and clear economy teacher, but she have a discusting personality and she have no other knowlegde of social science.
If you try, it will be pretty easy. She's a really good teacher and her notes help a lot!
Good teacher. Can get boring at times, although it's a hard subject to make interesting. She hate to reexplain things. However, if you work a bit, you will pass
She's one heck of an economist. Difficult course but always very specific!
