STAT200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Eugenia is an excellent professor and turns an otherwise boring subject, interesting. Her notes are very clear and it helps to print and follow them along in class. She also takes time to answer your questions properly and gives clicker questions to make sure you're following along. I would definitely take a course with her again :)

Eugenia's lectures are clear, interesting, and applicable to real life! She ensures that all students understand the concepts, and tries her best to give extra help. Midterm and final are fair - but make sure you keep up with the practice problems!

The best professor in UBC! Kind, helpful, intelligent, wonderful teacher (I could go on). I would highly recommend that you take her class! Our midterms and finals were fair because she wrote them. It's also great to meet her during office hours because she can effectively provide explanations to your questions. Highly recommend to take her class!

The course material itself was not difficult to understand, and she made it even easier. Her lecture notes are ridiculously neat and extremely helpful. I didn't even have to buy the textbook.

STAT200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Really helpful and clear during lecture and during office hours. Coursework is light - online homework and two assignments, all of which are pretty easy. One of the few profs I've had that genuinely cares about her students. Beware her midterm, though - it brings down your guard for the difficulty of the final! Overall, an amazing Stats prof.

STAT200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I really enjoyed having Eugenia as my prof for STAT 200. Her notes were great summaries of the textbook. They were clear and concise, and had exactly what you needed to know on them for the webworks, written assignments, midterms and final exam. The midterm this year was pretty easy, but the exam was quite hard.

BEST PROF EVER! Clear, concise, and cares about her students, making sure that everyone grasps the key concepts before moving on to the next chapters. Her examples and demonstrations allow you to understand why statistics is relevant, teaches you how to apply the material, and even makes class fun! If must take stats, take it with Eugenia!

AMAZING PROF. Incredibly nice, extremely helpful outside of class, presents material clearly and in an organized fashion. Definitely the best Stats prof. Midterms harder than other profs, but worth it since the general final is a killer.

AMAZING PROFESSOR! One of the best I have had at this university- no doubt. I think someone below mentioned she was horrible and not to take her... please ignore that comment. It does not get better than this. I HATE stats and math but she made it enjoyable. Her writing is super neat and she is always willing to help. TAKE HER CLASS!

She has one of the best teaching methods ever! Her explanations are exceptional and she simplifies the difficult concepts in a way that anyone can understand! No need to buy the textbook (she even says so herself) Her notes are so well written and simple to understand that you don't even need the text! Reminds me of a very nice high school teacher.

Clear and concise, even with the accent. I found the material inherently boring, but she was animated enough to keep my interest. If you need stat, take it with her

She was arguably the most clear, responsible, helpful and thorough professor I've ever had...so much that I almost felt like I was sitting in a high school classroom. She made statistics much more interesting for me than I initially thought it could be, and her exams are fair. Definitely a top notch professor!

One of the best profs around. It's hard to make subjects like statistics interesting but she did it. Her notes are so clear, and she provided many examples for us to practice. Midterm was easy and final was fair. I recommend people who needs Stat 200 to take it with Dr. Yu. She also made me interested in stats. Nice & Helpful too!

An excellent prof overall. She is very, very clear, steady, well-prepared, and approachable. The biggest flaw is something that is beyond her control - it's introductory statistics guys, it's not supposed to be super entertaining. Give her a break. Other than that she's a very effective instructor and her exams are fairly easy.

stat251 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This was my second class taught by Eugenia, the first being stat 200. Her lectures are easy to understand and she provides summarized lecture notes for each chapter, which she then follows in class. She is helpful and receptive to questions. What's more, course notes are provided for 251, so no textbook is needed.
