she is absolutely the best teacher I had ever met at Pinetree, her class is always funny and she is extremely knowledgeable in terms of her understanding for China. Don't trust others' opinion because they r so that rude that Ms Chan has to be mean to them. Trust me, Ms Chan is really funny and you will definitely love her!!! Ms Chan I love you so much!!!!!!!!!!
you know what, mandarin is easy. just like riding a bike, except the bike is on fire and the road is on fire and everything is on fire because it's hell
You want an easy A-B take manderin, but you have to go through hell in my experience. Just finish the work and be loud. I still suggest droping the course tho, near the exams things the teacher will get really mad so just be chill. Good luck
Very knowledgeable teacher, as long as you pay attention and act reasonably, you will have no problems. Although she may handle some situations differently, it is not her intent to offend any students. Definitely recommend taking Mandarin as a language, don't let the negative reviews from intimidate you. They do not represent the truth.
Yells at students everyday for the smallest reasons (asking again to make sure of instructions on an assignment, messing up on "the counting") Definitely picks favorites and always humiliate students by saying they're "special students that need more help" when they get confused. Doesn't give clear instructions on assignments. If you already know mandarin, it's an easy A. But if you don't, major suggestion: DON'T TAKE IT
extreme favouritism. There was a girl who was just really nice to her, and she loved her. She basically bombed the final exam and probably barely passes, but she got a 99% overall and an award for Mandarin 9. She's ok as long as she likes you
Very abusive. Gave poor grades. Told students that their lanterns sucked. Think she is a communist as well.
Easy teacher but annoying when she yells at people. I think she has mental problem. Although she is really nice to me, her mandarin is still poor and the accent makes her sound weird.
YO best teacher ever you guys Be trolling, she might get angry and might yell at your but only cuz she cares for you and btw what kinda asain women doesnt get angry bunch ungrateful brats
Her teaching consists of making you memorize Mandarin for tests. As a result, I didn't learn anything. She also rants about how everyone hates her. Maybe they wouldn't if she could actually teach.
Assigns students with trivial work. Cannot deal with troublemakers and instead bullies the more quiet students, openly insulting them. Definately should not be teaching.
Patronizes students, acts "differenty" towards non-Asian students, unclear teaching and pointless/iffy assignments.
i'll make this short and sweet: all i can say is ...., her "teaching" is basically her own opinion of you. if she likes you, good, if she doesnt , i suggest you drop the course
one of my friends doesn't know the language and he is pracitcally screwed because the teacher doesn't teach anything is the worst teacher EVER and she is a fer it is only esay because i'm mandarin
HELP PLZ! I need a good manderin teacher NOW! Being in her class for gr 9/10 taught me nothing, now im screwed for gr 11. Worst teacher ever refers to me as "some white kid" when im only 1/2 caucasian
Think of her classroom as a dictatorship. She is arrogant and extremely proud of her mandarin abilities (although she should not be) and not open to new solutions and ideas. Totally biased, irrational
Doesn't allow expression in class, cannot communicate with students, cannot teach. Need I say more? Appalling.
Who makes high school students perform puppet shows? Absolutely Appalling.
She is very to her students. None of her students like her. Don't know why she can be a teacher of Pinetree. The worst teacher~~~~~~~
takes the meaning out of learning a new language you can only get a good mark if u already know the language which defeats the purpose of even having the course Worst teacher ever!
The most unqualified teacher I've ever had the displeasure of having in all the years I've been through school. Puts students down, lack of proper in class excercises, a lot more.
you are gonna be just fine if she likes you. she gave me the top student award.
I got 86% in her Mandarin 12. Try to be one of her favorite students, and you will have a decent mark.
