You know, I have a lot to say about Ms. Chan. She is the person who completely wrecked my average for sem 2 in grade 11. Her course are very hard. She teaches only basic problems, but later she expects you to combine concepts on the tests. Study a lot of easy stuff because that is important in her class. The tests are easier than you think, but it is very hard to concentrate when you have a bazillion problems under your little nose and only 80 minutes to solve them.

Truly passionate about what she teaches. Had her for Chem 11 Honours, and learned to love chemistry. She expects a lot from her students, and pushes them to the maximum they can achieve. Always funny and engaging, and extremely encouraging not only with her academics, but other things as well (life advice). Take her class, you'll come out of it a wiser person. Thank you, Ms. Chan.

She can teach, but she does not give enough time for quizzes and tests. I ended up flunking all of the quizzes so far. One of the more recent tests went wrong too because 90% of the class didn't finish due to insufficient time. Challenging class too. Unless you're ready for cramming lab reports all in one week's time, do not take Honours

She is strict, obviously. Sometimes not very helpful, that is why I think her exams are difficult...

Definitely has class favourites and gives good marks to them as well. She often makes things a lot more complicated than they need to be causing the subject to be difficult to understand.

Obviously her 'tough' cover doesn't work after a while becuase you can see the care that she has for her students through the countless hours and enormous amount of help she gives.
