She can be really scary and mean but she's a good math teacher and can be pretty funny sometimes. Kuriyan could be nicer tho and not yell at people when they don't understand the material. I don't love her teaching method but for some people it really works.

When I first got my schedule and saw Dr. K's name i wanted to cry. But after spending a whole year in her class i realized what a great teacher she is. A little scary at first but as long as you do your homework she is okay! Has funny comments sometimes!

Best math teacher I've ever had. Her tests are a lilttle difficult but you really learn from them. Having had her for two years, I can say that her teaching really prepared me for my future math courses. She's also available every morning to help you if it is needed, which is absolutely amazing. I love her.

Dr.K is an amazing math(functions) teacher as well as a great person once you get to know her! I can't even put into words how much I respect her and admire her for her hard work and determination. She really knows her subject; if you don't understand something, she is always there in the morning for math help. You will definitely learn math in her class! And, she's actually pretty funny with her side comments :D

Dr.K was a hard teacher. But, I learned a lot, and forced me to do my work. For that I am greatful and she helped me get ready for grade 11. I struggled a lot but it paid off. If you want to learn, stay in her class and good luck! She also has the best sweater on Halloween!!!!!!!!!!

although a tough teacher, i am SO lucky to have her. she is so knowledgeable and makes sure you know the material. you will be set for the exam 100%. the time passes by so quick because you work hard in her class. She often gets agitated when students don't understand, but you can tell she doesn't mean it to pick out or embarrass a certain student. overall she knows what she's talking about, and actually helps you in the end, she helps A LOT. she is there in the mornings too for extra help!

Some students appeal to her style of teacher, and some don't. I personally love and thank her for being so strict, because gr.11 math wouldn't have been as easy if she didn't put in a lot of discipline. She's always at school at 7-7:30am for extra help, which is awesome.

Dr. Kuriyan is a horrible math teacher. I decided to take Functions and Calculus at a private school because of her poor reputation. Had I taken the courses with her, there would be no way that I would get accepted into university. She needs to retire and make room for a teacher who cares about teaching and inspiring her students.
