She doesn't have a good understanding in what she's teaching (accounting) and gives very unclear answers to any questions, if she can even answer it at all. She has the students take a lot of notes then do 1 to 5 questions from the textbook everyday while she makes tea in her kettle the rest of the class.

Peters is a nice person and an okay teacher, but her tests are irrelevant to the work that we do in class

Im honestly questioning whether or not she even has a teaching license... her courses are confusing, she pulls information out of nowhere which also happens to be completely irrelevant all period and completely avoids answering questions by using "yes" to answer everything. If you see her on your schedule drop the course immediately.

Worst teacher ever! The students knew more than her. She had no idea what she was saying half the time and the other half she would completely mix everything up and not teach anything at all!

The textbook was more interesting then her class. Her methods of teaching were out dated and boring. She was extremely strict and did not treat her students. Slow to return marks. She could be nice sometimes, but her class was not fun.

She was an easy marker in my french class, but never helped you and gave little assistance. She spent most her time talking about her law class instead of french.

This teacher is hard to read. She doesn't like students being late to her class, Thats a give in. She sometimes ignores her students she doesn't like. She picks her favourites. She has a lot of knowledge about the law in her head, and I think she would have done better as a judge. In the class room she is often vague, and in projects she usually marks the rest based on the 1st presntation. She does these quizzes a lot its kind of annoying. Read your textbook! Shes boring to listen to, I often fell asleep.

She's a really nice person and quite witty at times. However, she has "very high standards" as she puts it, which at times can get ridiculous considering the course she teaches. She's pretty vague and won't specify what she's looking for though she expects detailed, complex responses thus resulting in poor marking. She had to re-balance our marks after the guidance counsellors approached her cause she got a million complaints.

One of the few i disagree w the majority. I had her for civics, not great but not bad either. Was nice, and had some good discussions, tho not always clear.

She got better over the year. Ask for clearification and you'll get it... but you have to ask and participate.
