Joan is quite disorganized, BUT if you are able to live with it, you will do good. Yes it takes a little bit of extra work at the beginning, but you get used to it quickly and you are able to get good grades. I used the guidelines for exams she gave us and it helped. If needed, read in your (costly!!) manual. She is open to conversation about other things than bio. I had her in Bio 2.
Eaasy A with this prof
She is extremely lost and goes on tangents MOST of the course. She never rereads the exams before she gives them, so they are full of mistakes and most of the questions are unclear. Try to avoid this teacher or make sure you know how to learn on your own because she is useless.
I don't mind if people are ADHD, but seriously take your medication, Joan. She is the most lost person i ever saw in my entire life. If you have her, cancel the class or run. just run.
Very nice person but with all respect I don't believe she should be teaching human biology. Very disorganized, avoid if you can and please don't waste money on the text book!
Shes a nice teacher and all, but shes extremely disorganized and very boring. Not very clear either, but she is ready to help if you ask for it. I wouldnt take her class though
She was disorganised but a super nice lady. Take her as a teacher if you get a chance. She often went on tangents and posted stuff at 10 oclock the night before a test but if you paid attention in cl
She is not clear. She should sincerely stop teaching. The manual is way more interesting and easier to follow. She is kind and will give you more time to hand in assignments and labs if needed
i should have dropped the class. i regret it every day. in lab sessions, she's confusing. in theory classes, she's boring and basically reads her powerpoints slides. her tests will drive you crazy.
She is not that clear!!! You never know what counts and what does not! Readings are ambiguous!! Have to do a lot of work to understand... tests are okaii!! Study and stay up-to-date with the material!
She is a very nice person and she is very helpful when you go ask questions one on one. However, she is really disorganized and so her course is too. Her tests are very ambiguous. I do not recommend.
She will mislead you haha. But if you keep your head up and know/study the subject well, it is not hard to do well in the course. Even if she is bad, it doesnt really affect ur own performance.
Lacks organization. Tests are not clear, hard. She uses all different terms and words in tests than in her class notes. Makes me think of Trelawney in Harry Potter. Worst bio teacher I've had.
Hard ambiguous tests. Extremely disorganized. Nice person. Overall teaching skills are way below average. Get castillo-ruiz if you can
I never looked forward to her classes. Very unorganized and spends too much time on random rants about random biology facts than the actual stuff we need to learn. Classes are boring. She's not clear in her explanations, and her tests are fairly hard.
I love her counting skills: 1, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5 ... But besides that she can keep the class' attention, not boring at all, knows alot about her subject, just a bit absent minded :P
She is the nicest person ever...she is actually the only one that cares about you, and not only about your grades.
She is a nice person but she lacks organisation. Study the book instead of your class notes and don't expect her to hand back your corrected work before the end of term.
She's a nice teacher but sometimes isn't able to properly explain things. Most of the time, you're better off doing other hmwk in class and then taking notes from the book for the tests
She is the best teacher ever, she understands her students more than anyone else, you can talk to her about anything, she knows her subject very well and knows a lot of interesting facts. :)
She is not very organized. Better get a tutor and have textbook as best companion. Always read your schedule to avoid surprises.
she's really not as bad as pple say. just read the book for her tests, plus if she makes mistakes she gives everyone bonus points :)
She's not that bad. Very disorganized and lost but since she won't get anything on time, she accepts late assignments and even labs. Very nice and friendly.
She is super disorganized, never hands back things in time for quizzes and exams, etc. However, she is understanding about late hand-ins and nice to her students (in general)
I didn't enjoy her class. Everything I learned, I read in the textbook. She does not know what she is talking about and she gets lost in her notes.
i dont like her. she hardly explains anything she puts on the test. my time in her class would be better spent reading the book, since thats all u really need to do to do well
This teacher is hilarious. Shes doesnt know what shes talking about, shes unclear and does explain well what to do, especially in labs.
she's not very good at hinting what's on the exam....not very good at all. Study the opposite of what she says.
Nice lady but terrible teacher...Lost...unclear...never helpfull in labs..always read ur textbook and hope to pass her tests!
nice but you'll never understand what she's teaching. be sure to study hard from the book since her tests are not easy. She's chill but don't expect a 90.
nice person, but she's not a clear teacher so that's why the tests are hard.
now, i never understood her, and when it comes to labs she knows nothing
I have some difficulty following her ideas. Unstructured at times
shes always lost, she doesnt kno wat shes talkin about, BORING class too
