She is an amazing teacher, really smart and helpful when it comes to class work. (Go see her during office hours she's real helpful) We had very interesting debates in her class (I had her for Medicine and Ethics) although she isn't the most organized teacher out there, her classes are still loads of fun, and really interesting. I would definitely recommend her and take her for another class. She also gives so many bonus marks!!! Definitely, worth it :)

Her tests are generally quiet easy. Unfortunately, they don't weight much (5% each). The essays weight for 25%each. And she is kind of strict in their corrections. On the other hand she gives bonus points so don't miss that. Her class is really interesting (Medecine and Knowledge). Sometimes it turns to a debate. She has strong opinions but she won't pressure them on you; she actually seems to enjoy exchanging ideas with her students.

Course load is absolutely INSANE!!! Currently have a five page essay based on a 300 page novel due in the middle of the semester, along another paper of which is due on the same day. Hard marker and very boring lectures, dis organized with due dates and repeats herself way too much.

Very nice woman, wonderful teacher, incredibly intelligent however TERRIBLY disorganized and forgetful. 3 more classes in her humanities class which has been quite nice so far and she expects to fit in another test, bonus presentations, discussions, group oral presentations and be able to actually teach class material in the 3 classes we have left. Would recommend if you want a very smart and kind teacher and a somewhat easy class (just know you can't follow the sched given in the course outline

Needs to get off her high horse. And by high horse I mean Empire State Building sized horse - constantly mentions she has a doctorate, but having a higher education doesn't justify being this narcissistic. Knowledgeable, but dismisses all points of view that are not her own. Content is more or less interesting, but her speech and monotony made me sleep through many [email protected] Assigned books are not necessary to succeed, though she does use them.

The only bad thing about her is that she repeats more than enough, its a good and a bad thing cuz it makes people fall asleep. BUT, she is a wonderful person always a smile on her face she explains clearly and gives many examples, she knows what she's talking about. PLUS, EXAMS ARE ALL MULTIPLE CHOICES AND ARE REALLY EASY. Gives bonus marks for every effort and plays many movies throughout the semester. I WOULD RECOMMEND HER

She does give a bit of work, I admit, but she usually stays on topic. She goes into great detail about stuff, and I disagree with the person who stated, "Only her opinion is right." She takes into consideration some of her students opinions. She's a good teacher. So quit complaining already!

She's okay.. very helpful though.. her tests are easy [multiple choices] all you have to do is pay attention in class and read the books..this is why am taking her for med. & ethics. but 1 problem with her is that she gives notes orally, so you gotto make your own notes. Else than that, she's a perfect teacher.

In Medecine & Knowledge she gave an essay and said she would not accept any of them if they were late. Then when students started handing them in late she asked the class to vote if they would allow the assisgnments to be corrected. The class voted yes obviously because they didn't want to get beaten up. Doesn't stick to her word. Avoid at all costs!

Although I got over 80% in her class, I did not enjoy the class one bit. She never stays on topic. Only her opinion is right. She is also very disorganized; but this can be used to your advantage. She assigned an essay in April and extended it every week; we didn't hand it in until the end of May. On the other hand, her test are very easy and are on what she talks about in class. Also, the test are multiple choice.
