PSYC2100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I love social psych, but her class tested my enjoyment. She is obviously passionate but she never adequately prepares students for the exams. Her lectures are long and difficult to sit through. Her review questions are always easier than the exam questions so be prepared! And READ THE TEXTBOOK!!! I would avoid taking her class if possible...

PSYC 2100A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Worst prof ever. Doesn't speak English at an acceptable level to be teaching. Repeats herself with every sentence and still have trouble understanding her. It's a very easy course subject though. Extremely vague exam questions and project instructions are worse (TA had difficulty..). Very rude to students. Will never take her classes again. Avoid!

PSYC1002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Some people just aren't meant to be professors, and she is a fine example of one of those people! She repeats herself a lot and uses a lot of "ummm" and "uhhh." In addition, her exam questions are very vague so it's tough studying for her class. Definitely will not take a class with this woman again!!!

While numerous people have complained about this prof, I honestly really enjoyed taking her class. No problems understanding her accent as long as people weren't talking around me, easy to retain information, she posted her notes online, repeats information you NEED to know, and did review sessions prior to exams.

very difficult to understand, not interesting at all but I must admit she went out of her way to run classes on saturdays in order to help students understand what will be on the exam

She's awful. Every class, less and less people come and I'm starting to understand why. Her accent isn't totally incomprehensible, but she repeats herself all the time. The absolute worst part is her exam questions. They're horrible, vague, and impossible to study for. I hate tuesday's because of this woman

I liked her a lot. I don't have a problem understanding people with accents so that wasn't a problem for me. She was very nice and interactive and used lots of videos!
