If you enjoy life, or are already having a difficult time, do yourself a favor and do not take her class. She is a terrible teacher and honestly just seems like she enjoys using her "power" to control everyone and everything surrounding her. Shes a control freak and honestly gives you no reason to respect her. She is unclear, and unorganized. On the other hand, her tests and exams arent actually all that difficult, as long as you've studied.

Is your life not going the way you wanted it to? Do you find yourself waking up in the morning wondering "why do I have to go to school?" Then don't take this class because you'll never want to leave your house ever again. When someone asks a question, she does like a presidential candidate and answers with something completely unrelated. I had her for sociology and despite my asking, and despite her promising, she never gave us our grades online until after the final exam. Avoid. Please.

No way. Seriously guys, that was something special - she didn't answer to questions, and when she did she confused us all more than we were before. If you can, try to take someone else - you won't regret it !

She has been absolutely no help to me at all. She never actually teaches you anything and if you ask her a question, she'll just ask another student to answer it because she can't answer it herself. Her way of explaining things makes abosolutely no sense. She's actually one of the worst teacher I've ever had in my life, if not the worst.

I have 'Dr. Kovitz' now. She is honestly one of the worst teacher's I have had in the sense that her course is painfully boring. She is a hard marker and very very strict. DONT TAKE HER!

This teacher is extremely hard. You need to put in hours for every assignment. This seems harsh but I honestly think she is the most helpful teacher I have ever had. Her class was the first class I actually had to work on and I can say that I truly learnt the material for once. Be prepared to spend a lot of time in her office hours. She's also lenient with due dates. Basically the due date is the end of the semester. She seems rough but it's helpful in the long run.

She's quite the nutcase. Her class is a total joke and if you don't agree with her opinion, you're wrong. At least she's leniant with due dates.
