She's a great teacher. Tests are hard to prep for but allows for memory aids. Lots of office hours and will answer MIOs within 48 hrs. Hard to get used to and predict the weekly quizzes and tests of what type of questions to expect until you reach near the end of the semester (which sometimes is too late)

Roberta is one of my favorite teachers, having been in the honours science program. Her classes are well structure and clear. Her labs are informative and straightforward. She can seem arrogant at some times, but she will make you pass chemistry very well. I would take her again, it's a safe bet!

As a person she's ok, but as a teacher, quite arrogant and wants to be right all the time, even when obviously wrong! Don't get on her bad side.

BEST PERSON EVER! Great teacher, hilarious, and extremely sweet. She will push to make you succeed if you help yourself as well. What sets her class apart from others is that she is the most uniquely funny person I have ever met. Totally love her and did well in her class (and I'm no academic!) You NEED to take her - even if it's just to experience her chemistry puns.

AMAZING! I love her. She is super sweet and really wants you to learn and understand what she is teaching you. The tests are pretty difficult, but you have enough time to really think about how to answer.She is always willing to help during her office hours, and she'll set up other appointments if you can't make it. I really recommend taking her.

such a nice teacher and really wants the best for her students however her explanations and teaching methods are not the best. she doesn't explain very clearly and her notes aren't that detailed. she does prepare you well for her tests though as there are usually questions similar to labs, homework or problems from the notes.

Roberta is a really great teacher! she is very very very well organized which in the end will help you out a lot! she really knows what shes talking about and tries in every way possible to help you out. The labs are a bit hard at times because there is quite a lot to do in so little time...but make sure to read through the lab before going into the class and youll do fine. All in all i really liked her and would take her again if i could.

Good teacher. She explains the theory quite well and is willing to help her students. She gives a quiz every week. She also gives six long assignments throughout the semester but they are very helpful to clarify the theory, which helps for the final exam. However, she is strict during lab periods. Five minutes before the end of each lab period, she is calling in the lab reports so that the next group of students coming into the lab could start on time.
