Sorry I wrote the below review and I thought it sounded really mean. She knows a lot and explains stuff till it's clear but is very rude and harsh with students and won't always support you in achieving your academic goals.
Knowledgeable, but hard marker, unsupportive and mean. Do not recommend!
She can be really scary and mean but she's a good math teacher and can be pretty funny sometimes. Kuriyan could be nicer tho and not yell at people when they don't understand the material. I don't love her teaching method but for some people it really works.
When I first got my schedule and saw Dr. K's name i wanted to cry. But after spending a whole year in her class i realized what a great teacher she is. A little scary at first but as long as you do your homework she is okay! Has funny comments sometimes!
Best math teacher I've ever had. Her tests are a lilttle difficult but you really learn from them. Having had her for two years, I can say that her teaching really prepared me for my future math courses. She's also available every morning to help you if it is needed, which is absolutely amazing. I love her.
Dr.K is an amazing math(functions) teacher as well as a great person once you get to know her! I can't even put into words how much I respect her and admire her for her hard work and determination. She really knows her subject; if you don't understand something, she is always there in the morning for math help. You will definitely learn math in her class! And, she's actually pretty funny with her side comments :D
Dr.K was a hard teacher. But, I learned a lot, and forced me to do my work. For that I am greatful and she helped me get ready for grade 11. I struggled a lot but it paid off. If you want to learn, stay in her class and good luck! She also has the best sweater on Halloween!!!!!!!!!!
although a tough teacher, i am SO lucky to have her. she is so knowledgeable and makes sure you know the material. you will be set for the exam 100%. the time passes by so quick because you work hard in her class. She often gets agitated when students don't understand, but you can tell she doesn't mean it to pick out or embarrass a certain student. overall she knows what she's talking about, and actually helps you in the end, she helps A LOT. she is there in the mornings too for extra help!
Amazing teacher and shows you her true self when you don't take her for granted, only good math teacher in the school and she actually KNOWS how to teach unlike all of the staff that claims they do. I hope I have her next yr for gr.12 math or else I'm taking it in night school cause all the other teachers are HORRIBLE!!
Nice looking and really nice lady...til you get put in her class. Warm smile. Knows her subject!, but teaching it, not so much. Yes she's avail 7:30am, but how 'bout being available DURING regular daytime class hours when you're not teaching?
Dr.K is one of the best teachers ever!!!!, she might be scary but that's what makes you not fall asleep or get distracted in her class and you actually understand math, she's so sweet and funny sometimes I'll prolly fail math if i dont have her again
Some students appeal to her style of teacher, and some don't. I personally love and thank her for being so strict, because gr.11 math wouldn't have been as easy if she didn't put in a lot of discipline. She's always at school at 7-7:30am for extra help, which is awesome.
Super strict and pretty indimidating if you ask me.
She Threatens and Raises her voice all the time and some students are practically shaking in their chairs before tests because they are so scared and they feel unprepared,even with the homework done.
She's a good teacher and she is incredibly smart, but she is also very intimidating.
She is definitely a hard marker, but she wants the best for her students. I did not successfully pass her class but when I went to summer school it was a total breeze. Just work hard it will be okay!
Dr. K is officially the most amazing and awesome teacher!! She is so sweet and nice. Her smiles are the best!!! She is so amazing..and she can woop anyways but in math!!! Most smartest woman ever!!
she knows what she is doing. c'mon she used to be a university prof at york!she is amazing! i love her
dr.k might be scary, but she knows what she is doing. she's very smart and she explains things clearly, and that's what i like about her. i miss you dr.k. loved ya in Gr.10
super teacher! she's got a phd, what more can you ask for! loves the subject and *teaches*!!! perfect teacher, although intimidating.
ur very scary ms. i wish u weren't my teacher.....but ur smart though..lol, "whateva"
she scares me sometimes! but shes an amazing teacher and will help u when u need it. just NEVER talk in her class and answer questions and u'll be on her good side ( believe me thats where u wna be!!)
ok...i had her once for supply in math...n it is obvious that shes a pro. However...2 me...i dont see her as a real teacher but someone who got her Phd degree n educate us as a Dr n not as a teacher
BEST TEACHER EVER IN THE HISTORY OF SCHOOL!!!! YOURE THE BEST MISS.... KNOWS HER STUFF AND WILL SRILL IT INTO YOU SO THAT YO WILL REMEMBER IT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.... BEST GR. 10 CLASS...YOURE THE BEST MISS
very smart and VERY good teacher. she knows her stuff and doesnt put up with anything. all you have to do to do well in her class is the homework, and if you value your life you'll do it.
Funniest Dr.Kuriyan quotes: "Now that we have jumped over another hurdle of life we can move on." "Ladies are we in Dreamland again!?" "Now lets say x represents my age which is 29"
best math teacher ever..explains everything..shes super strict but thats what makes you learn..and shes hilarious! love her
"if i went into a coma..and i came back out you would still be doing this problem" I LOVE DR.K!! best teacher ever! are you with me?
i had her last yr every1 hated her but i loved her she was awesome she knows her stuff & even tough she may seem scary shes got a sense of humour& i was hoping to have her this yr
she's an amazing teacher! she's scary at first, but just always get your work done, and she'll appreciate the effort. dr. k is one of the best teachers you'll ever have.
Just make sure to be on top of all the homework, she always checks.
OMG i ave never done better in math than with Dr.K!!! shes really great...and yes she is very funny.."are you with me?" " ladies ladies ladies how many times?" lol great times :)
Dr.K scared me at first in [email protected] 9 but i think she was ok... "Ladies are you with me", lol so many laughs. "I, ve told you a million times". so funny, but still scary. OMG FUNNY.

honestly, at first I was scared but now I'm so glad I had Dr. K. She really grows on you and makes sure you do your homework.
dr. k is an amazing teacher, so appreciate her cause she prepares you really well for any future math courses. but you gotta work!
ur scary sometimes :| but really helpful AND ur a GREAT TEACHER!! thank you
i hated her. we were all scared to breath in that class. but there were some funny moments...of course we were all to scared to laugh in case she began yelling
i was really intimidated by u @ first but your strict teaching style was excellent & i learned so much in gr.10. you're one of the best teachers @ LAT.
i hate math! always have always will...but she made it logical and understandable that 1 yr and ill always remember that!
sooo funny......"wha-tevah", "let's check it out" "if i've told you once, i've told you a MILLION times!" i hate math but love her class.
smart lady,,her classes kept me awake...she expects you to know certain things n im jus extremely intimidated
My heart beats at a regular pace most of the time; my palms are fairly dry; my anxiety attacks are seldom -- I MISS YOU DR. K!
miss never even had you but you scare the bejebusu out of me..
"we have gone over this millions of millions of times" and then she just rolls her eyes and makes us feel like morons.....funny though, nevertheless....
shes SUCH a good teacher. u may be intimidated at first, but shez good...lol and she makes you laugh
in grade 10 she scared me, but in grade 12 i had so much respect for her and actually enjoyed her classes. She's a really nice woman and the best math teacher!
"this point... i shall call it: 'H' " she really IS dr. evil!!!
I finally get the inside jokes. Had her for a day in summer skool, GOD SHE SCARES ME.. but she is kinda funny. Transfered out tho, too far behind
greatest teacher alive...no kidding. Miss you totally rock!. These ratings attest to that. I have understood math better than i ever have. Calc is my fav class.
Girls, you should have learned this in grade 5 and 6 - Dr. K is a classy professional who knows how to teach math - I wasn't a math star, but she made math easy
girls. if i've told you once, i've told you a hundred-million times, and yet you still make the same mistakes. 10 yrs later, and i still remember the lady.
wonderful teacher, even if she never remembered my name.
Sniffle, sniffle ... I miss CALCULUS! Let me rephrase: I miss the woman who was the subject of many a nightmare!!! Dr. K, you reign supreme!
Ok ok fine... WATEVA... God only knows how many times i have taught u this girls. Geez this lady is hilarious! But an excellent teacher.... kinda harsh tho.
Excellent explanations.However, stop getting impatient when we ask you for help..how do you expect us to pass the course if we do not ask for assistance?
I had a lot of trouble with math and she was always there to help.
Had her for calculus in '01 U will totally LUV calculus, she knows how to teach!
We only came to extra help to make ourselves feel better. ..excellent teacher!!
sweaty palms...then a little humur and a smile...and math is WHATEVA-i told you
Dr. K--you rule Calc....there is hope for us..... God only knows how much!!
Scary at first, but is Amazing! She made me fall in love with Calculus.
Slightly intimidating, but a REALLY good teacher. (& her catchphrases are funny)
scary at first but very funny and helpful as time passes
She use to run after me to come to class since she knew I was wasting my time
Had her in '01... PAY ATTENTION TO HER! She's an awesome teacher!
She is a holy terror, but ilarious at the same time.
