Priverida has strong teaching skills, but she is a hard grader---not bad to look at either.

Really good teacher, provides many different points of view and life experience examples when possible. Always cheerful! I wish more professors were like her. Tests are pretty easy if you read and do the study guide. I would recommend Dr.Prividera to any one majoring in Communication.

she is ok as teacher nothing great. i did hate dgoing to class because she is fake. you can tell by the tone of her voice when she speaks its a put on. she also needs to realize that comm is a required course and not everyones major, so comm is not my life. chem is a little more important tan comm to some people.

She is a really great teacher and is one of the few profs i have had thats relates to students well. She is very understanding and will give you test questions on a regular basis if you go to class. I would strongly suggest her. She does a good job at making class interesting and making the material understandable.

I can go ahead and say she is a very good teacher BUT for the gender comm class I would not recommend taking her. She is so pro women it makes taking her class as a male akward and disheartend. one would think a class on gender bias wouldnt be so centered on making everyone think the world is out to get women. the text book is awful.

It would be nice if she stopped talking about her self and teach for a little while. How many times do we have to hear about how many awards she has won?

I've had a lot of professors but I can confidently say that Dr. Prividera is one of the most exceptional instructors I've ever known. You will learn, you will not be bored, you will look forward to class, and you will get the grade you deserve. If they were all like her you'd never want to graduate.

She is amazing! If you come to class and take the notes the three tests will not be a problem! She does a great job of making this class interesting, she seems very passionate about what she teaches which is a huge plus. You don't wanna listen to professor who doesn't care about what they teach right???

Dr. Priv is good. She is very outgoing, a little loud sometimes, but she is a fun teacher. She tries to learn your name even though it's a huge class which by the way makes people a little more shy than usual.

Dr. Prividera is my absolute favorite professor here! I'm even smiling as I type this! She's so helpful. Attendance is a must because she doesn't place the powerpoints online. Take tedious notes and study everything and you're good! Ask questions about the study guides if unclear-- it pays off later.

Professor Prividera is a fantastic teacher! She answers all your questions before you ever ask...she's very thorough! The class was very interesting & the topics discussed were easy to relate to! There are 3 exams which are straight from the notes, & she gives lots of examples to help you understand! Pay attention & study & you're sure to get an A!

Great Teacher. Really knows her stuff. Very energetic and seems genuinely happy to be teaching communication. If you go to class and take notes the exams should be no problem and she sends out studying guides. She gives you chances to ask questions and talk to her about things you dont understand. I definately recommend her.

I did not care for her and I feel that she did not care for me or my ideas. Some people like her, but I bet she liked them as well. I never did anything to her to deserve a C in her esy class. I turned in everything and I was nearly always there for class. Just don't wast your time.

Awesome teacher! Definitely one of my favorite teachers in the comm department. Very interesting class, the discussions are great! Dr. Privedera is very intelligent. Tests aren't easy, but she gives you a study guide. Definitely take this class with her!

Fun class. She has a lot of energy and a lot to say. She is very intellegent and enjoys talking to students. I interviewed her for a project in another class and she spend several hours chatting with me about her feminist views, which really helped me out and had nothing to do with her own class.
