Ms. Shim is a wonderful lady! I love talking to her during and in between classes. She is very knowledgeable about chemistry but unfortunately doesn't teach all that much, unless approached outside of class. You must be prepared to spend countless hours reviewing the textbook if you want to do even remotely well in her classes, as her tests are insanely difficult.
Very good teacher.
She is an exceptionally difficult teacher. To do well in her class, you better read the textbook THOROUGHLY! Nonetheless, she is very patient in her explanations if you personally ask her questions out of class time. This course is not chill, be ware.
she is a super awesome teacher
Ms. Shim is a really nice teacher, she would go around asking if you don't understand anything. But she teaches really fast, and doesn't go into details. You really have to self study to do well in her class. Ms. Shim's tests are easy in the beginning of the year but as time pass they get increasingly hard. I'm in her grade 11 Chem honours class, my mark was at a 91% before the chapter 7-9 test, but because I got around 60% on those tests, it lowered my mark to a 88%. Gotta work hard.
She is friendly and happy to help you with your problems in Chemistry. She adequate to teach the course. However, she doesn't seem to have a deeper understanding of the questions and doesn't really encourage students to explore the subject with curiosity. Overall her tests are fair and square, though one or two questions might be unreasonably trick. Expect to self-study and practice extra questions if you are aiming for perfection.
Kinda feel bad for texting in her class but great teacher. be prepared for some self studying as notes are not enough to do the review worksheets. Still did okay through cramming though.
I took her Chemistry honour class in Grade 11. She's a very nice person to talk with, however, as you may hear of, her tests are the hardest in BNSS. It actually depends on your curiosity about chemistry. If you ask she would explain to you patiently. But if you don't then you will probably not do very well on her tests. Personally I got 96% on her lass so that indicates she's not really a hard marker. I highly recommend those who are not very good at chemistry not to have her class. Try others'
She is a really nice person, but if you don't know your material then you fail or barely pass. And she give you pretty much zero chances to make it up. Her tests are INSANE and she makes the final so much harder than it needs to be.
The nicest teacher that anyone can offer. She's fun, engaging towards students and always on task.
I really like ms shim :) shes defintely one of my favorite teachers. Although her test are pretty hard she does everything to help us
She is very helpful, especially if you're asking her for one on one help. She stays after school to help students and still provide notes for upper level students. However, her tests are relatively hard. Definitely watch the time and prepare well.
She really knows how to teach, and is awesome. Gives good notes, and tries to help the class understand topics as a whole. Always ask questions when confused, as she will help you with no hesitation. Study hard for her tests, they are near impossible
She is a WONDERFUL teacher, but beware her tests.
i dont think her tests are as hard as everyone says but yeah, its pretty important to study/listen in class...really nice, boring classes
Wonderful teacher. Easy to understand, although you might feel a little embarassed if you ask a question since most of the time, you'll be asking the question to her in front of the whole class--not a
Extremely nice and helpful, but you have to ask when you don't get it or she moves on. Tests are hard if you don't pay attention in class or you don't study. She gives quite a lot of homework, but it
Her tests are alright but hard. Dunt understand and I need a fricken tutor... I really hate Her efff
Great teacher, definitely one of the best in the school.
Great teacher. Really cares about your marks. Tests are super easy if you do your readings.
Nice teacher...but EXTREMELY hard tests...you read the textbook and get the concepts...and end up bombing her hard tests..escpecially multiple choices...she scale our marks on MC all the times
excellent teacher needs to give retests and more time in between tests
She can't teach at all, all she tells you is to read your book and her tests are so hard. I hate her omg.
best teacher for science you can possibly get. if you are lucky to be in her class focus on self notes, other than that.. a really easy teacher, a really easy course
currently in her Chemistry 11H Pre-AP course. she's very open in helping her students, which is great. however, her lessons may be confusing, so pay attention. overall, a wonderful teacher! :)
she's a great person, but has a very soft voice and really small writings, its sometimes pretty frustrating
one of my fave teachers at north, her tests are hard but then again, she actually helps you apply your knowledge to real life cases
transfered to her regular class instead of honors. not getting the best mark in the world, but still a pretty decent teacher who treats you with respect.
very casual lessons...relaxed rules...little hw...but weird tests, she doesnt teach all that much, u just gotta read the book urselves, which is kinda boring.
Her tests are really hard and she always gives homework. but if you study for the tests you're safe and it's not much homework. And she gives you lots of help if you need it.
Really nice teacher. But you have to study for tests. Shes not THAT clear in her lessons. She ALWAYS give h/w. but not huge amounts. TESTS ARE HARD IF U DONT STUDY!!!
Fantastic teacher as she always helps you out when you need help. Her tests are rather hard but they're reasonable since they are just trying to see whether you know the subject.
Shes nice and all but i'm failing her class....and im not really that bad at science, i got A's last year
She's really helpful not so clear but over all an awesome teacher.
Very good teacher, always helpful and very friendly.
Always willing to help, very nice makes you feel comfortable around her which makes it even easier to ask questions, admits her mistakes
She is a good teacher if you ask her for help she will help you. Likes to chat with you.
I hated Science before I came into her class. She saw I was struggling and kept pushing me to keep doing my homework. I ended up with A's all three terms.
very very very nice and friendly and responsible and dedicated teacher...not exactly the easiest, but definitely very devoted!
Luv her~ she's one of the nicest teacher at BN. I had her for 3 years, from sci H to AP Chem~ I wasn't the top students, but she treated me fairly and nicely~
I have her for chem 11 Hon..and I can tell you shes a good teacher...but sometimes when she explains she confuses me even more :P
very lenient, willing to give you second chances if u mess up ^^ extremely patient
I owe my 96% chem prov. mark to her..greatest chem teacher ever~
she is one of the best Chemistry teacher... I had her 2 years straight now, she explains all the all materials extremely well. I love her! :)
Shes a Very Good Teacher, and exceptional in explanations. Very Patient.
very nice teacher, but extremely difficult tester if you don't study much
Ms.Shim was so nice...better then Bonvino...who always makes us do fill-in-the-blank notes...they aren't even notes...geez
very nice teacher, explains well, too bad she's gone...
