Dr. T is one of the greatest teachers I have ever had. She works so hard to make sure her students get the best out of her class. She taught me so much and makes everything interesting. She makes you work hard but it ALWAYS pays off. She is the most willing teacher; she never turns down a students asking for help and will go out of her way to be there for them. This class really improves your work ethic skills as well. Honestly you will learn so much in her class and I don't just mean science.

Dr. T was the best teacher I have ever had. She is so helpful and willing to do almost anything to make sure that her students are doing well, as long as you show her that you actually want to do well. Thanks Dr. T for everything!

Dr. T's class is great because she really knows how to weed out the weak kids. It makes me angry when I work so hard in a class only to get the same mark as someone who barely tried at all. This class isn't just for science kids, I'm absolutely awful at science and I managed to get an 82% in her class (Highest mark being an 87%). This is the first time my work ethic actually payed off, lot's of kids got left behind because they neglected homework... They're in for a rude awakening in university.

Oh Dr. T... Such a great person and teacher. Make sure to work hard in her class because it is difficult to grasp it all sometimes. Also, don't be too up tight with her! She's a fun person with lots of cool stories. Finally, HI DR. T!!!! I know you read these :) PS- tell us your real name please. Thanks Dr. T!

"All aboard the bus of science"... Okay Dr.T taught me a lot, but it was one of the hardest classes I've ever taken. Homework every night, and almost all of it is marked. you can usually find answers to all the assignments online. We wasted so much time in her class talking about cats, but it was fun! For her tests and quizzes, memorize the littlest details that really aren't important because that's all she puts on them. She marks organization really hard. Good luck to anybody who gets her.

Dr. T is a nice person however, her teaching methods are crazy hard. She does not help when you have questions and my mark dropped 30% from last year. Get a tutor right away or drop the course. She has killed my love of science and taken away hopes of future jobs.

Merciless and tough. But don't let that fool you, under the Star Trek cosplay, the motorcycle and the tattoos she's a big softie. Lots of fun and a really good teacher. She doesn't like it when you ask her medical questions but do it anyways.

I'm a hard working student who generally receives marks between 90-100%. Throughout the semester , she marked my work terribly. I worked my butt off in her class and yet she gave me the worst final mark Iv'e ever received.I'll admit Dr.Turner is knowledgeable in her field , but she was so unclear and unhelpful when it came to assignments. She definitely picked favourites , despite if they were hard working or not. She only liked the loud , annoying kids for some reason.Her exam was SO hard man.

Knows a heck of a lot more than the homework she gives out- which is a lot. Asking questions is good- because the answer's never "because". Always got a great reason for why something is why it is.
