In my third year of nursing now looking back on the comment I wrote about her "ear piercing lectures" lol, that part still stands, lol. I am studying for my CAE right now and I couldn't help but remember something she said. "If you know how to break down the words you'll understand them". She is a scatterbrain but she does want you to pass. If you find yourself lost, go see her for a tutorial. She'll do her best to help you.

Super annoying high pitches voice. On the bright side, you learn nothing from her lectures anyway therefore attendance is optional (also, she doesn't take attendance. So). If you're good at learning just from a textbook, no problemo. Super helpful if you need to see her outside of class.

She has a really annoying high pitch voice. When we're in our class of 90 students, she snaps at our questions. I think the large group makes her feel intimidated. She works better in small tutorial groups, which is where you'll probably find yourself, seeing as how the majority of my classmates learn nothing from her long, ear piercing lectures. She's somewhat a scatterbrain and will tell you point blank when she has no clue what she's taking about. When we've had subs it was refreshing :/

I guess it's not her fault that the material is so tough, but she teaches it the best way she can. She wants everyone to pass. If you failed her class, then she is not to blame, you are.

Anyone who gives Ruth a bad rating is either 1) Lazy, 2) Has poor attendance, 3) Has no appreciation. Ruth gives her heart to her lectures, she will do anything for her students - sometimes more than they deserve! lov u Ruth

She's not easy, and neither is the material. Listen to what she is teaching, ask her to clarify, go to her reviews and tell her what you don't understand and she will make you understand. She's awesome, I loved her!

well, ruth is a kind of teacher who wants you to pass. She is considerate in giving 2 points for you to pass. However, she is unorganized and kind of annoying voice. exams are really hard and tricky.

This is 100% accurate: She thinks we are biologists and that we should understand everything within minutes! She tells us to study her notes for the final... then three days before the final, tells us not to study them because her notes are wrong... but she just said that so that she wouldnt have to give us an extra mark on the last test! If you are stuck with her... bring EARPLUGS and just read the textbook during class! She litterally sounds like nails on a chalkboard!

Yeah...let's just say the monotonous high-pitched tone actually put me to sleep in several of her classes. I don't read her notes; I practice with the Reece and Campbell CD and I'm passing so far. Very nice woman, but awful teacher.

This semester's average is 58 with Ruth. I only passed thanks to intense cramming and using Martin chance's notes. If you take her, buy the Reece and Campbell Biology book and put lots of effort in to it. Good luck.

she's a nice woman but has no idea what she's doing. she's not very organized and will more often than not give false information. She'll give out questions but when going over them in class won't be able to figure them out. i think she'd fail her own class if she was a student. i'd suggest avoiding this teacher if at all possible

She has no idea what she's doing, has tol the class that she can't do some genetics problems and that her notes are flat out wrong!!! You'll basically have to teach yourself
