Gave me a 2- in communication for bad handwriting. 0/10 would not recommend. If you get here switch classes because she will not help you or teach you anything
Horrible teacher, shoes no respect to both students and parents.
If you're interested in psychology take Ms. Dellamaestras MATH course. It is perfect as she talks all about her personal life
One of the best math teachers I ever had. Gave very informative worksheets and classes were always fun. Really enjoy her teaching skill, and I would strongly recommend her classes if you can learn well on your own.
ms della maestra is a wonderful human being! she has been through a lot and is very sweet if you don't push too hard or annoy her. however, as a teacher, she could definitely work on how she explains things and showing up on time. love you bae <333
I'm not sure why people dislike her so much! She's kind, and is very understanding when you ask questions. Often she neglects to explain everything beforehand, but is crystal clear when you ask her personally.
Great if you're a terrible math student, terrible if you're a great math student. Highly vindictive marking. I can't believe we pay so much in tuition fees to listen to her blab about her personal life and kids. NOT RELEVANT. looks like these complaints go back 12+ years and she still hasn't learned that no one actually likes her!!
Brutal teacher, teaches nothing in class and is constantly late. If you get her you will have to learn the majority of the course outside of school.
I think she has written most of the positive reviews of herself here, it is pretty obvious. Really mean and unfair. She needs to see the ENT rather than tell us about her medical problems and we really dont care about her kids. Mean to high achieving students
I didn't learn a thing from her the years I had her!! She is always late to class. She gives us one lesson at the beginning of the unit, then gives the sheets, with no lesson and we have no clue how to do the later ones especially, then we take it up and she yells for not doing it like her BUT SHE DOESN'T TELL US HOW TO DO IT!!! Never stops talking about her allergies or her kids. She'll give you good marks if she thinks you think you're no good at math, otherwise you're screwed. Worst teacher!=
Absolutely terrible teacher, does not teach anything at all. She makes her tests really long and her and difficult to solve.
All she teaches is stories about her children.
Great teacher this year- supports her students I like her personal anecdotes

I still cannot understand how she is at this school, having ruined so many people's university plans with her inability to teach math and attitude. Very uninspiring teacher
Always late for class, does not teach us anything but gives us sheets we do not understand. We learned more about her children and allergies than about math.
she showed up 10 minutes late. then spent 10 minutes telling us about her kids. then spent 10 minutes yelling and complaining. 10 minutes sniffling from allergies. 10 minutes trying to chat with students. 10 minutes yelling at people again.
we called her the gorilla. nuff said.
ABSOLUTE WORST TEACHER EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! She starts yelling at the class for making the slightest noise. She is very unreasonable and one year, when I didn't have her, however my math class was conveniently placed at the same time, she runs into my class and starts yelling at us and telling us to quote on quote "shut up" She made us stay after school for 10 min. However the next day, my class was writing a drill and we hear her class start moo-ing. She is an irresponsible hag that does nothing.
sometimes Very strict. But really fair to everybody, no matter what.
She is very bad. She favours the try hards more then the people who are not as good as she wants them to be. Not to say having PMSes all day, and takes her anger on the students. One day, I got shouted at for asking my friend if they had an eraser. D:<
I can firmly say I learned practically nothing so far this year in math. First year's teacher was better, much better. She just didn't really explain anything. Tests are fairly easy though.
Shes always late for class and she has chalk/dust allergies which she uses as an excuse for her constant mood swings. She has a short temper and snaps at students in class. No one seems to like her ve
Ms della maestra might be one of the worst teachers at UTS. She has no idea of how to teach well, or mark fairly. On top of this, her mood swings and chalk allergies (not that she can do anything abou
Not very nice. Pretty moody. Fairly difficult to get above 95, but still doable. She doesn't seem like she has it together and seems scatterbrained at times. Definitely an ersatz Fraser Simpson (l
Great teacher. Many students are performing badly simply because they aren't using the strategies taught in class.
not a good teacher at all, she doesnt deserve to teach here
She's a great teacher to have in grade 12. By far one of my favorite classes that year.
cant teach...jus photocopies a textbook and tells u to do it...
she's great for struggling students, but terrible if you're actually good at math.
Treats some questions like they are obvious and just shuts you down. Very annoying if you want to ask a legitamete question.
Really nice teacher, and explains very well. Very helpful to F1s
probably the best math teacher I have had at UTS. Most of the time she is chill and just jokes around, but when you want to learn, all you have to do is ask her stuff and she will calrify anything. When I was younger i thought she was a little lame, but this year she is great.
ok so I know she has a terrible rating, but I think she is one of the best math teachers ever. She explains everything really well and does not give that much homework. She really cares about her students and how well they do. Like if they fail tests, shell give them assignments to make up the marks. I think because she was pregnant before, she was often in a bad mood. But now shes sooo nice and tells us funny stories about her kids. Shes AWESOME!
she's antagonistic to the better math students, and unhelpful to those who actually need help. she's disorganized and passive aggressive as well. switch to another section if you can. worst of UTS.
uh she needs some straightening out. doesn't know her stuff and is really disorganized.
lol we kind of dont need her, we just do the entire textbook. her tests are sometimes hard, but nothing unreasonable. she cant teacher, but were allowed to do anything in class haha shes cool
gossips with students instead of teaching, habitually late for class, treats kids' questions as obvious and stupid
pretty easy after having depiesa.and helps you when you need it, no problem. so far i haven't seen her have trouble with the material like some people have said
worst math teacher I have ever had in my life. routinely unhelpful. ask her about delta/epsilon proofs and watch her writhe for 1 hr confusing you, and herself
