1251488 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Be prepared to review because the over all course isn't easy. She has 5 exams with lowest score dropped and no homework. Overall she is very patient with answering questions but you need to score high in exams because it's half of your grade. The final wasn't ideal and she doesn't slow down toward the end . Tough class but shes better than most 125 instructors .

She is a good math instructor you just have to be ready to take the class and put your own effort I did not pass this class but I am taking her again in the fall. I recomend her she wants us to learn and respects the fact that we are there late in the evening so if ppl on their phones or compute she will ask u to leave.

MTH12B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Had this instructor at National University. I hate math, but she was very effective at explaining how to work problems. She was prompt with grading, helpful on a personal level, and thoroughly covered the material. Her accent is a challenge to understand at times, but her subject matter knowledge and willingness to help outweigh the challenges.

This is a difficult class but its not due to the instructor. She really wants us to understand and explains things well I had another Prof. At west and she never completed the problems she was working. So Prof. Gromova is good you just have to put interest and dedication to the course.

Horrible instructor, strong heavy russian accent, exams were tough, doesnt collect hw, attendance mandatory, never has practice problems during class, I needed this class badly, she ruined my hope. DO NOT TAKE HER. YOUR BETTER OFF TAKING SOMEONE ELSE OR STAY HOME.

I think her accent is not that big a deal if you pay attention. Yes it is very strong but you'll get use to it. She knows her stuff but is very sarcastic if you ask questions when you come late or miss class often. She dosent collect homework or take attendance. She's cool with me.

This lady is a HORRIBLE teacher! Strong accent is an understatment, and she has the nerve to get an attitude when you can't understand what she's saying. Moves quickly through materialand doesn't explain throughly. She needs to be FIRED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She has a very thick accent. However, she is very detailed in her explanations. Make sure you complete your homework because much of her tests are from those problems (she does not collect them though). I would recommend taking her class!!

Math125 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

i was scared at first with her accent. I had to reprogram my listening skills. I think she knows she knows she has a strong accent; that's why she gets mad when people talk in class. Or maybe she likes the sound of her voice. Very helpful. Her tests are easier than the hw.(which she doesnt collect) & she drops lowest grade. 1 of the best at west!

math245 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Her class is not that hard. She does have a accent but what math professor doesnt. I took her class in summer session, she did not collect the homework but it is helpful to do since the test questions come from it. Gives you a study guide for each test just do the study guide and you will be fine. Overall her test were easy and she is helpful.

excellent teacher, if you pay attention you can understand her. she is willing to work with you. dont go by the book and dont miss class, if you can copy the HW pages u can save money. she really cares about her students i dont know what they are talking about. just study and you need to do the HW. and dont act like a child she will go off on you.

Nice lady however not a good math teacher. Was late to class 20 min every day, therefore she speeds through the material and thinks that answering questions is a waste of time. Can be very sarcastic when you ask a question.Constantly staes that not many people will pass the class and is very negative. Very unprofessional, not a good teacher!!!!!!

Nice lady but very hard to understand at times due to accent. I'm not faulting her for that but if she were to compensate that by slowing down and taking the time to answer more questions and caring a bit more, she would be a great instructor. She has stated that she doesn't care if anyone passes.

Good teacher because she does not check homework. She understands we can't do all the homework assigned sometimes. However, it is REALLY hard to understand her, especially because of her strong Russian accent.
