She is a horrible professor, hard grader and alot of the stuff in the reviews isnt even on the test. i do not recommend her, do not take her. you can try your hardest and still end up with a C. she doesnt care about her students at all and is NOT helpful.

PSYCH 1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is not laid back at all and has a grumpiness about her. I think that she's very intelligent but We taught ourselves! all she did was show powerpoints and video clips, lecture, assigned too much homework that had to be on the computer. she was very impersonal and the tests were difficult; even if you studied hard. I wouldn't recommend her.

Amazing professor! She's always willing to help and responds to e-mails asap. Her stories always relate to the topic plus she really does want you to learn the material. The class can be difficult but if you attend and take notes you will do fine.

PSYC 209 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Energetic, knowledgeable, and passionate professor. Her goal is for you to understand and be able to apply the concepts she teaches. It's not an easy A, but if you're able to dedicate the time necessary to do well, it's an A of which to be proud.

Prof Maianu is the most incredible professor I have ever had. She is just as passionate as she is intelligent in the field of Child Psychology. Her heart for Romania and her field is infectious, due to this I have chosen to pursue the same field. The class is challenging only because she wants you to do your best and excel. Incredible role model.

psyh 212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

who ever THINKS that if you don't like her for 212 you shouldn't be in the field of early childhood development, you are not knowledgeable at all. you have no right to say that and you are clearly her pet or the ONE. it's sad really

Psych 212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Really knows her stuff, but seems to be more worried about you knowing she's smart than you learning. Tests are very misleading and she often forgets when they are. Isn't very helpful;waited a week to email me back then blamed me for "waiting til the last minute" If you want to hear the same story about Romania over and over, this is the way to go!

Prof Maianu is very passionate about her field and was one of my favorite professors. If you are complaining about having her for PSYCH 212 then you should not be working with children. She expects you to know the information she provides and if you do no know it and can not succeed in the class then you should not be in the field.

HATED this professor. She talks more about her experiences in Romania and her grandchildmore than she talks about the actual material. Basically had to teach myself the material.

She can be hard but only if you do not study properly for her class. It is important to know the material rather than memorize. Test questions based on knowledge of info not memory of vocab. She really knows her field well. Take good notes, most od test based on them & in class examples, videos, and power points. Also, uses text book a lot.

Prof Maianu was awesome! I loved coming to her class because she was so passionate about what she was teaching, very helpful, and I loved how she always told examples and stories to illustrate her points. I would recommend her class to anyone who is willing to study and put in the time because if you do its not hard to get an A.

The people who are complaining about this professor are the ones who probably didn't show up for class. However, she is strict and her tests are hard. If you study for them properly they'll be a breeze. She was incredibly open to my class about visiting her & getting help. She's very thorough & all she really asks for is respect from students.
