She was very unclear about everything she wants. She hardly lectures at all about what you are supposed to be learning. Her exams do not match up with what her study guides tell you to study. Don't take this class!

This instructor was the worst teacher I have ever had in my whole 4 years of college. She was not clear on what would be on the midterm, out of my 200100 pages of notes only two unclear, vague questions were even on the midterm. She does not teach a single thing that is needed for the major.

Highly unclear about what she wants on tests,papers,etc. The lectures do not follow the book and she tends to go on unnecessary lecture rants. Some of her comments in class and on papers can feel like they are meant to be sarcastic or rude. On one paper I made a C. Her comment to me was, "Good Job! …more A+." She has said this to multiple people. less

This class was absolutely ridiculous. Nothing she teaches is on the exams, and nothing from the study guide was on the exams either. There are two classes left in the semester and I have no idea what grade I am going to do on the final because she is so unclear. I cant believe she has a teaching …more job. less

How this woman got a job as a professor is beyond me. Everything she said was unclear and confusing ! Just because someone knows how to work in Macro Social Worker it does not mean they know how to teach . I witnessed her being rude to many student, by being sarcastic. She is very unhelpful and …more does not care about students. Nothing was learned. less

This professor is brilliant. She knows the material. She expects students to critically think and will make you work for your grade. She will help to clarify and give feedback if you ask, but make sure to ASK. Do not assume you know what she is wanting. Tests are difficult and attendance is …more mandatory. less

This teacher changes what she wants in the assignments. She is a brilliant person but a poor instructor. Extra credit is useless, it made no difference in the final grade. Her grading is very unfair, as the majority of the class grade is based on group work, therefore the grade does not reflect …more your competence. less

Might as well buy the book and teach yourself. Not helpful in the least. Feedback is useless because she changes her mind with the wind. Says one thing is expected then changes it. Treats students disrespectfully.
