I assume this is this young woman's first attempt at instructing a true college level class because she has no idea how to instruct a group of young adults to tie their shoe laces, let alone attempt to teach a heavy math core statistics class. She understands the material perfectly well herself, …more but communicating that knowledge is a different story less

Dr. Watagoda is an incredibly nice and caring professor, but she can be lacking in the communication department. Her thick accent can be sometimes hard to understand, and her way of teaching isn't the best. However, you can teach yourself with the online assignments. One positive is that she will …more push back due dates and work with so to get an A. less

Even though she is sometimes difficult to understand, she is willing to spend as much time as it takes for you to understand. She will meet with you as often as you need and wants to make sure that you succeed. She is incredibly kind and understanding. The course itself is difficult, but if you …more fall behind or need help she is there for you. less

Really cares about her students and will do everything she can to make sure you understand the material. The class itself is difficult, but she tries her hardest to teach the material in an easy way.

Very lecture heavy but she can normally explain the topics pretty well. The tests are tough. Stat crunch and the "view an example" tab on pearson are lifesavers in this class.

Dr. Watagoda is an extremely caring professor to those who are willing to do the work to learn. She is incredibly available outside of class and schedules extra review sessions before tests. Some people complain about her accent, but if you pay attention you will be fine.

Lasanthi is an awesome teacher and she really cares about all her students. The class is not easy but she does everything she can to help you. There is a lot of homework but you don't have to study as much because you basically study everyday with the homework. She extends deadlines if you ask her …more as long as you keep up with homework you're good less

Nice professor, but the class was bad. Be ready to have Homework and quizzes every night. The exams are about 30-50 questions of stuff you don't even cover in class. Don't go to office hours, you will have to wait 20mins to 1.5hr after you said you'd be there. DO NOT TAKE!

Dr. Watagoda's class is difficult, but she is willing to work with you until you get the information in class. She is a very nice lady and is very approachable. She is a truly genuine human being.

Lasanthi clearly cares about the success of her students and wants everyone to do well. She can be difficult to understand but is available and eager to help outside of class. The online setup of the course makes things easier to keep up with and improve on. If you come to class and do well on the …more homework, you will do well. less
