Yolanda has been my ALL-TIME FAVORITE TEACHER EVER!!! She is so helpful and funny. She has missed her calling as a comedienne. I will highly recommend her to any student. She's proof that not all geeks are boring.

Yolanda is great at detecting distress in her students. Funny thing is that she asks if everyone understands,then she'll put her hands on her hips and say, "YOU'RE ALL LIAR, BECAUSE THE FIRST TIME I SAW THIS I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND IT." LOVE HER...AMAZING SEMESTER!

I was sweating bullets on the final...I looked up front and Yolanda mouthed," You can do it." She was very encouraging and supportive. Hands down one of the best teachers at the university.

Yolanda is demanding, but she wants you to shine! I will quote her, "I will not have go out into the world saying that I was your Statistics teacher and you don't know how to do statistics." I love that she loved TEACHING statistics.

I am writing this because I fill a little guilty for an evaluation that I give Yolanda at the university. She disdains failure and excuses. She really wants her students to work hard and be in charge of their learning. I hope the evaluation is not a blemish on her permanent record.

Honestly, there are no words to describe Yolanda as an instructor because Yolanda is an experience. I highly recommend this instructor if you truly want to learn statistics.

Yolanda should be a stand-up comedian over a teacher. She made class fun, but when she says read the textbook, she means it. Also she wanted the best for her students and would do whatever it took to help them.

I love Ms. Kumar...She will tell a hilarious completely unrelated story in the middle of lecture to get everyone's attention then continue the lecture as if she had stayed on the subject. She is very helpful.

I was on this site to rate another instructor and thought to comment on Yolanda. She's awesome, but her exams are no joke. STAT 2500 did not prepare me for this course...but Yolanda is patient and has her student's best interest at heart.

OMG...I just enrolled into Yolanda's class and she awesome! She is hilarious, but she means business. The lecture on the review materials were no joke, however, she made it seem obtainable. Man, I love this instructor and I just met her.
