I had her for General Psychology. Honestly, she is a very nice lady who was always willing to help and work with students nor was she very demanding in my opinion. Everything was super straight-forward, show up to class, do the homework ( none were difficult), and study properly for the tests and you should be able to get a good grade. Really not a stressful class.

If you show up to class, listen and make a mininum of effort, you will have good grades. She gives a moderate amount of work but it isn't very hard. Nice and sweet lady! Doesn't lose her patience over small things.

Personally, I really liked her. She is really sweet and push the exam and assignments when the students feel overwhelmed. For the tests, the secret is to read the book and to follow her study guide. I had her for general psycho and i passed with a grade in the 90s. If you like psychology you should enjoy her class.

She's a very nice lady. However, her class could be a bit boring and her tests are very hard. If you end up having her, you'll do well as long as you study hard. She takes attendance and knows when you miss class.

Do not take her for your complementary. We spent half the semester learning about anatomy rather than psychology. Her powerpoints are messy, and her lectures are also unclear (when she decides to lecture). She would often ask us a question and just write all our answers on the board, creating a confusing mess. She gives extremely long homework assignments worth very little, and the instructions are often in unclear, broken English. I never thought I'd have preferred French to my complementary.

it is SO easy to do well in her general psych class. she's really nice and if you actually take some time to prepare for the tests and do what she suggests it's almost impossible to fail. it was a 3 hour class and most days it felt like it was only an hour long! i finished with a 96 and would definitely take her again.

Very nice and understanding on a personal level! She knows her stuff and it shines through. However her exams were difficult in my class and she failed to acknowledge that the test was probably too difficult though the class AS A WHOLE did poorly (not only a few individuals).

I had a great time in her 3hr class, it breezed by every time. The content is extremely clear, explained very well and I retained so much from her teaching I never had to open a book and study. Very engaging, one of the best teachers I've ever had.

She seemed good in Interation and Communition, but in Human Sexual Behaviour, you realize how pointless her existence is in the classroom. She just reads off slides . These slides are created by those who made the book but are quite useless because the test is basically multiple choice on things solely found in the book such as particular studies that do not reflect what is learned in class - why bother have class then? She'd be better off sending us slides and assigning readings for the test.

It is important to note that her classes are quite boring but your presence is important for participation marks. Many small (and easy) homework assignments and group work. Fair grader for the most part. All notes come directly from the textbook. It is mandatory to take notes from the textbook if you want to pass the exam - if you take the notes and study them, you're guaranteed an 85 on the exam. Extremely nice woman, quite lenient, and overall a pretty good teacher!

An ok teacher. It is not hard to pass her class, but effort is required. Assignments are graded inconsistently. English is not her first language, and it is very obvious. Participation counts for a lot in her classes, but even those who participate may not get a good grade depending on if their opinions matched hers; she has somewhat biased views. Overall not an approachable teacher, and a bit rude if I may add, but classes are generally easy.

Terrible teacher, would not recommend. Terribly boring classes and grades unfairly. She honestly puts random grades in for participation. Ignores MIOs and has poor communication. Lacks knowledge in the subject, she'd probably be better of teaching in French.

would't recommend her! She is super disorganized and just rambles on in class! her tests are not at all what we do in class! The tests are based on the 100 pages you have to read in the textbook! They have nothing to do with what she says in class! Her tests and really hard and she likes to trick you! Her marking is really hard and unfair! DO NOT TAKE HER

I had her for RM, she's a pretty good teacher, the only thing is that she loves giving many assignments which take FOREVER to do, and are hardly worth anything! She's always willing to help, but when you hand in an assignment or do a test the answers have to be exactly what she wants and nothing else, if you really want to work hard then I recommend this teacher, if you don't want to work hard all the time then AVOID!!
