Other people complain about her and her tests, but i personally had her for two years in a row and shes the best. Her tests have a certain pattern to them and are really easy as long as you study because she never gives out essay questions. She marks assignments and tests on the day of, so thats a major plus :) Her notes are really helpful and detailed. As long as you have a passion for history, you can endure her classes. Honestly so nice as long as you are respectful to her.

Marika minimized the casualties of the Holocaust and she is a Holocaust denialist anti-Semitic.

I was on her bad side at first, I wasn't sure what her expectations were so the first few assignments and test weren't great. I went in to see her, to get her to spell out what she wanted. Ever since she's loved me as a student and I understand her so much better. She is a VERY knowledgable lady and will always make time for someone that needs it. She can teach you a lot about the subject you're taking and about life in general. Great teacher!

Psychology is more than just Freud and Piaget. The teaching material needs to change to better reflect what Psychology is today.

Participate in discussion, do all reading, go to class, don't try to be the "cool guy" too much... and you'll do fine. A little extra work to make your assignments interesting and pretty, an it's 90s.

She's so nice! But only if you're nice to her <-- makes sense. She's not too good at teaching, but her class is still interesting and your marks actually reflect how hard you work.

Although she is often very generous, i think she really must develop some new lesson plans rather than reading from the book.

Mrs. Arban's courses are interesting, and she helps when needed. The only fault is minor: when teaching she sometimes talks slowly and stutters... still good.

Knowledgable and explains her thinking. She's ready to help if you're ready to ask. Stutters a bit, but once you get past that her class is a lot of fun. Work~

All she does is read, it's pretty boring, and hard to keep from falling asleep. Also, she always uses the word "sort of" when describing definate things
