I'm adding this professor specifically so that I can post a negative comment about them. You have to take the tests at breakneck speed. She made an implicit assumption in a question on a quiz, and took 10 points off for not reading her mind and wouldn't listen to reason. Treats you like a high …more schooler. DO NOT TAKE. less

I liked her, she had a lot of examples in class, so it made the homeworks much easier. She's very helpful and nice, but the class might not be as interesting.

She is a nice person, but an AWFUL teacher. She understands physics, but she cannot convey it...at all. AVOID at all costs.

I took her class for both semesters of analytical physics, and they weren't terrible, granted I did have to work a lot! Her teaching method is straight from the book, word for word. Four tests per semester, lots of material covered. But she did give us take-home portions (from the book) in …more analytical 1151. The final was 50% old test material, easy less

She is a nice person but that don't make you a good teacher. She teaches out of the textbook the entire time. You write pages of notes for just one class and she thinks its a good thing if the text average is around a 70.

She really means well. It's true that she's new at teaching and messes up on the board at times, but easy there, we all have to start somewhere! You have to be devoted to the subject to earn the grade you deserve. HOMEWORK IS MANDATORY. This is a very good thing since it both boosts your grade and …more without it being mandatory, you would fail exams. less

Physics is just generally hard. With that being said, this teacher is very interested in it and interested in helping you. Ive seen her spend hours before a test helping students. If you study, youll get a good grade. I plan to take her again in 1151. She's a great teacher. Tries to help her …more students the best way she can. less

Can be nice but an awful teacher. Major waste of my time. Her tests are harder than anything she prepares you for and they are long

This is the second time I took this professor. I personally think she is a great teacher. The other sections may be easier, but you will definitely learn more in this section. She gives quizzes once a week which all come from the conceptual questions in the book. Her tests arent that bad if you …more study. Its hard material, you have to work for it. less

Good Teacher, she likes what she teaches and is excited about teaching it. Really willing to help. If you show up late on a quiz day, she lets you take the quiz after class. If you have your equations and know how to use them, the tests are not bad. You have to be proficient to finish in time …more though. less
