Currently taking her pre-cal class. Too much homework, which is randomly taken up and graded. All examples in class come straight out of the book. She is very confusing, concepts are poorly explained. Also seems flustered in front of class, calls us 'kids'. I am 20. Students seem bored and are not …more engaged in the class. Would not recommend at all. less

Attendance mandatory. If you don't miss any classes you receive 4 pts on your final grade. Pop quiz every week. Tests aren't too hard. I learned through the textbook. She is very confusing and messes up a lot while teaching. Extremely weird personality. Hard to take her seriously. Easy material. …more Wouldn't recommend taking her. less

Incredibly confusing, inconsistent grading and attendance policies. Pop quizzes on a weekly basis and cannot be made up under any circumstances. Ended up learning the bulk of the material by going to math lab multiple times a week and by studying the book. I do not recommend taking her class.

This teacher makes many things more complicated than they really are. For every example that she puts on the board, she will work out the entire thing without pausing or explaining, while standing right in front of it so you cannot see what she is doing (she is left handed... no offense to …more lefties). She is much better with one on one help. less

If you have already taken pre-cal before then it's overall just a review of that class, even if it was in high school. She's really difficult to understand for the most part but if you get help such as math lab you should do fine.

Willing to help, but very unclear during class. Also has major issues with people going to the bathroom during class. I had to drop this course because I was too lost because of her lack of clarity. She's an alright person, but not a good teacher. I'd avoid if possible, especially if you're not …more good at math. less

very hard to understand. doesn't really know how to explain things well and does problems in a way that makes them more confusing. you have to rely on your previous pre-cal knowledge or you're just screwed. very nice person though. tests are usually pretty difficult

She is terrible at teaching. You can tell that she knows what she is doing, but she goes through each chapter so quickly it's impossible to understand. I got a tutor immediately, and he is the only reason I passed the class. If you can avoid her, DO IT. Even though she obviously knows math, she …more doesn't know how to explain any concept at all. less
