Jan 14, 2014 Oh boy, so some of these reviews are confusing.. Although she is very knowledgeable she is also a bit annoying. She assigns journals for every class, and she is very picky about grammar. She sent someone i know to the dean without even consulting them or warning them. She definitely has favourites. Her exams are easy and she gives you the outline. Take notes in class, and pay attention and you will succeed. Flag Rating

Jun 16, 2013 I had her for world religions and she was an amazing teacher. Their are a bunch of little assignments and if you do them all it is an easy 15%. You do need to do the work but it is an easy class i got a 76% but I did hand in a lot of assignments late, and I was able to bring up my grade from a 50 to a 76% in a couple of weeks. She is a teacher that you can always go to, and she tries to make the class really fun. Flag Rating

Dec 10, 2012 I thought that she would be a bad teacher with all those ratings..but no : she is a very nice and happy teacher, always want to learn more. She knows the class material very well. Interesting class but the way she grades is indeed a mystery. If you do the work, you will pass with a low 80 Flag Rating

Dec 04, 2012 Interesting Intro class. But she rushes through the information and you hardly learn anything worth noting. Lacks the interesting part of religion, with all its mystery. She tends to just regurgitate what she already knows. As do most teachers unfortunately.
Though she makes an effort to make the class experience as easy and interesting as possible. Truly a nice and happy women, very fair marker.

This can be said about most teachers - I guess education isn't as great as it could be...

Mar 21, 2012 I had her in RM. Sonia's assignments were short and simple; she wanted you to take baby steps and each step she made sure you took perfectly. This way we had a great idea about research methods in the end. When it came to presentations she kept them short which was good for shy students. Flag Rating

Jan 10, 2011 I had this teacher for religion. BIGGEST MISTAKE of my life! Students would ask her questions and she didnt even know how to answer, she would say, "i don't know". Also, the way she marks is a mystery Flag Rating

Dec 17, 2010 Sonia is a really sweet lady and is really patient with students. Tests and assignments are easy, and if you at least hand in all your work you'll get a really high mark. I recommend you take her! Flag Rating

Dec 14, 2009 Zylberberg is a really sweet teacher, always has a smile on her face. If you take her for QM u will have a quiz almost every week on the topic that was just taught. not that hard. Tests were easy. Flag Rating

May 12, 2009 i had her for arts and culture and she is a really easy marker except she focuses on different medias describing culture that aren't the best examples of good art in that sense, u need to read 2 books, and i got away with only reading one, tests are very easy and opinion oriented. :) Flag Rating

Apr 09, 2009 Sonia's class was not the class for me, but that's be personally. Her work is very easy, 350 word assignments, i did everyone the night before and pulled off at least an 85%. A very, very easy pass, but a dull class. Flag Rating

Nov 14, 2006 brilliant, lovely woman. She accomodates to each students personal needs: if you want to slack off then fine, but if you really want to learn something, she'll give you the means to. strongly suggest. Flag Rating
