I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. I had Math 30IB with her and math didn't really make any sense to me at all until I was in her class. She is super friendly and helpful! Don't panic during her exams, they are not as hard as everyone says they are. Just do all of your homework and practice. I did incredible on the diploma because of her. I recommend her, especially for Math 30, all the way!

I've had her for Math 10, 20IB, 30IB and will hopefully have her for Math 31IB next year and I'm telling you, Fenske is a legend and I'm seriously going to try to bring her to uni with me. She is by far the best teacher math teacher in MAC and is probably the nicest and funniest as well. The only way that you'll do bad in her class (or get humiliated) is if you don't routinely complete your homework. 10/10 recommend.

I LOVE MRS. FENSKE. She's a great teacher and is very clear and helpful when you ask her for help. Do your homework, because she knows who does and who doesn't. She comes off tough, but she truly is a nice person and really cares for her students. And yes, getting a 99 is worse than failing an exam to her.

Fenske is an amazing teacher. I was in her class for Math 10 and Math 20 IB, and I am currently looking forward to having her for Math 30 IB. She is extremely helpful when you don't understand a concept and ask her for help. Not only that, but if you can converse with her, she is interesting and a pleasure to talk to. However, her tests are much harder than the other teachers, no doubt. But it prepares you and you learn way more. At first I didn't like her, but now I love her classes!

She goes hard when she teaches, I had her in honors and she goes through everything in 100% maximum detail and difficulty. She seemed to like me and would small talk in the hallways, her exams are harder than any other teacher I've had, but she has covered absolutely everything on it. She is fairly encouraging and has remarks like "You did good" or "You did better than last time, keep up the good work" and such. She does however seem to pick out other students and humiliate them.

If you have her as a teacher, drop out, and if you can't, move schools. It's better to move schools than stay and fail her class. Never gives enough time for quizzes, and her notes do not make any sense. Lectures every time there is free time in the block. Test averages are low, and blames students instead of thinking of ways of how to teach better.

She is a wonderful lady, very knowledgeable and intelligent regarding math. However, her teaching style may not work with a lot of people. The examples given and used to teach the material during class are very simple and straight forwards, but when the test comes around, the difficulty level increases by a lot, making it seem like you hadn't quite learned the information at all. If you already understand the material or are naturally good at math, you will do well in her class.

Nice lady if you talk to her about anything but math. Somewhat understanding, but that's only if you're doing well in her class which is pretty difficult. Gives notes with nothing but examples of stuff that's very straightforward, but exams are a completely different story. Her post-test lectures are nothing to look forward to either. Maybe she just wasn't the teacher for me, but I was not impressed having her as a teacher.

She's nice.. if you stay on top of her class. Other than that she's intimidating, a lot of my friends are too scared to go to her for math help because if you ended up not getting something with her she would give you this of, 'are you dumb why can't you get this', kind of attitude. She does not monitor homework, so do it or you will fail the class if your not so good at math.

She's not... terrible. She's usually pretty good about re-writes if you completely bomb a test. I found I had a hard time understanding her teaching style for most of the year. Although that could just be the hardness of the curriculum. Or my own stupidity. Anyways... not a bad teacher, just be prepared to have to work hard in her class.

I had her for math 20 last year and i went from having honors in math the year before to nearly failing. She is a horrible teacher who is very unclear and unreasonable. She rarely gives rewrites and her tests are very difficult. She isn't half the teacher that Harvy Caron is.
