"Would take again" "Gives good feedback" "There for you"

I enjoyed her as a teacher. I took her Bio 101 online and learned a lot. It was a fun class as we had discussions almost every sunday night. It helped to discuss anything we might have done wrong. She was very open to questions and was very helpful. Would love to take her again.

Dr. Finch is the best science teacher I've ever had! I'm not very interested in biology, but she made it easy to understand. A lot of homework, but also a lot of extra credit.

BIO 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Took bio 101 online, very well organized and updated. Class has a large amount of content but was manageable. She will let you work in lab groups and share a lab kit if you take the class online. Do all the group threads and small assignments and she will make it easy to get a good grade.

Mrs. Finch is the best teacher I have ever had, not just for science. She has a great way of making hard concepts seem easy. She always was in our best interest. Never have I had a teacher who was so passionate about teaching. Took Bio in high school and struggled to keep a C.. now, I have a high B and feel like I have learned so much!

Mrs. Finch is the easiest bio teacher ever. She uses examples and scenarios that get you to understand many bio related concepts. I strongly suggest her to anyone!

The best online experience I have ever had for a class. Taking BIO online was frightening at first but she made the class a breeze. Everything was outlined and plenty of study resources!! Definitely a must take!!

Sarah Finch is awesome! I took BIO 101 online, and the class was pretty easy. She clearly explained what was required for the class, and she had the best syllabus I've ever seen. None of her tests are proctored. She issues study guides and is easy to get a hold of - she grades quickly and there are chances for extra credit. SHE'S WICKED AWESOME!

Dr. Finch is a wonderful Biology teacher! She has a passion for biology and she actually loves teaching and really wants her class to do well. She's extremely nice, funny, and extremely helpful! If you study you'll do fine. When I took bio in high school I hated it, but I loved it after having her as a teacher! She explained everything wonderfully!

Professor Finch is amazing! I had her for both Lab and Lecture and I highly recommend her!! She is clear and works with you. Her tests are easy IF YOU STUDY THE STUDY GUIDE! Her online quizzes are hard, BUT you can take them as many times as you want. Her powerpoints are amazing also (Very helpful) I would love to have her as a Prof. again.

Awesome teacher. She has no problem explaining material more clearly to help you understand it. She's probably the best BIO 101 professor at the Hampton campus.

She was wonderful! Is very clear about what is important, what needs to be studied and what you will be tested on. I studied for this class, but it paid off in full, I knew what I needed to study and understood what I was studying, I also retained the info well. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

She was extremely nice and professional at all times. She really knows her stuff and how to clarify it to make sense to students who have never seen this material before. She always answered emails very promptly and provided thorough input. I would recommend her above all to anyone who wants to actually LEARN this stuff!
