Horrible teacher. Worst ever! ALWAYS LATE, not only few minutes but 15-20 minutes! She always mio us not to be late, all students are on time except her. Sends security to tell us not to leave class even after 15 minutes of waiting, really disorganized. Comes without printing her stuff beforehand, leaves class in the middle of lesson to print papers. At the beginning of the semester she goes slowly and at the end she rushes a lot. Easily annoyed when you ask questions.. never again.

She is an okay teacher. She gives quizzes every week which prepares you well for tests. Her exams are a bit difficult but if you do all the textbook problems (she gives ALOT), you will do good in her class. She is really nice and wants you to pass.

She's good. She prepares you well for exams with a lot of assignments. She takes some warming up to but if you get to know her she's nice. She seems very stressed and at first can seem impatient. Her notes are very complete, the exams are always questions similar to what she has assigned as problems. Do all the problems she assigns and you'll be fine. She's a bit scattered so sometimes the notes aren't well organized but the information is all there.

A very a nice teacher, she cares a lot about her students' success. Although, she goes very fast and her explanations can be very vague (not to say confusing). She's hard to reach during her office hours and she seems to lack patience at times. Her tests are fairly easy and her labs are very interesting. Never skip and always pay attention or you’ll be lost within seconds.
