I find in her class, no matter how much you study or prepare for her tests you never actually get the mark you want or pretty much deserve. She is incredibly nice and funny, but literally all we did was take notes and do labs that barely anyone understood. She gets very mad when you don't understand something, and it's very hard to ask her for help. I also find on her tests she would put questions on them but she specifically told you not to study them. Your mark is always a mystery with her

Though she makes sure you work your butt off for your grade, Mrs. Tomlinson kept me in the sciences and I learned SO much from her. She treats her students like friends and always finds away to make her lessons interesting

Smart woman, very nice. You either get an A in your class or barely pass. I have never taken a harder class, she marks so picky.

She a good teacher, but I found her class hard. No matter how much I tried I couldnt get the mark I wanted. I memorized every single note she gave for a unit test and ended up with low 3. I didn't know how to get a good mark. She makes her marking hard saying that she's preparing us for university. I don't know shes nice but her work is hard and I hate how she doesn't give a review sheet for a test of exam. If ur in her class u have to try really hard. Spend 2 hour reviewing every night.

everything is up to her personal preference and if you make tiny little mistakes she rants about it. She over-reacts ( a lot and on purpose too) and talks too much about irrelevant things that you don't know when to concentrate. She is picky when marking her tests which include questions about little side things she mentioned. She took over three months with our biology unit but a little over TWO WEEKS on our chemistry unit. Her teaching isn't effective.

She's a brilliant biology teacher. She's extremely engaging and passionate about what she teaches. She's a riot during class, but also manages to stay down to earth at the same time. She can explain concepts clearly ten different ways, is willing to answer many questions until you understand a concept, and can also give ten different real-life analogies for every concept in the course, making it a lot easier to visualize them. She makes learning biology super fun and I honestly believe she can make her clas

Ms. Tomlinson is amazing! I was lucky enough to have her 2 years in a row. Everything in her class is fun. She is always full of energy and laughs, and makes science light and fun. She also adds in little fun facts about related subjects into everything. Shes like Ms. Frizzle on magic school bus, without the funky dresses

She's a riot. You will adore her class, even if you don't do well. Extremely knowledgeable and full of fun facts. The closest you can get to Ms. Frizzle. No flying bus, though.

Mrs Tomlinson is constantly wired, and students love it. She is able to make biology a riot because she is genuinely passionate about it. Makes for a very exciting semester.
