I love Gorman's teaching methods-she is truly passionate about helping us to learn the information. She can, however, come off as very condescending (calls us little baby undergraduates all the time)

She's great. Good at keeping you engaged and she wants you to do well. Should be easy to get an A because she gives up to 4 extra points on your final grade and she curves the tests to a B-.

Gorman talks really fast, but posts the podcasts online to help you catch up. Only work outside of class is to study for exams. TA office hours are helpful to most. Class attendance is really low, but the textbook is very dense and Gorman really breaks it down, so I would recommend going. Wonderful class overall, so interesting! Easy A if you work

Doesn't care much about her students, unless you're a good looking guy. Gorman treats her students like kindergarteners. She shouldn't be teaching at a university-level. Really good at getting you excited, but doesn't have the knowledge to do much more.

She talks soooooo fast, but it's good because she posts all slides online. Go and listen to her talk, it's fascinating. Very passionate teacher.

Absolutely amazing! For every lecture, you'll learn a lot of material, but she'll make you understand everything. Make sure you stay on track; getting behind is not a good idea for this class. Once you find yourself caught up, you'll find it rewarding!

Absolutely amazing professor. does talk fast, but puts podcasts up so you can go back and listen. you put forth the effort, you get the grade. Makes the information even more interesting than it already is with her love for it.

I had her for neuro lab. My only complaint is that sometimes she talks so fast that it's hard to follow her. However, she's an accessible professor, approachable, and willing to help you if she sees that you put in effort.

Worst lecturer ever. Taught nothing, expected us to know everything. Readings with the course were also not helpful. Slightly condescending.

Psychopharm was the best. Gorman is hands down one of the better profs at hopkins. i've taken 3 classes with her and she is head and shoulders above the rest. If you put in the effort, you get what you deserve.

She's a very knowledgable and smart teacher. She is not a good lecturer, and is very hard to follow, but she makes an effort to give her students more resources so they can learn, which I appreciate cuz you don't see too much of that at this schoool. Expect hopkins level exams with hopkins level curves.

PhysioPsych class. Lectures extremely interesting and worth attending. Answers most questions too despite 100+ students. She asks some strange questions on tests or words them oddly which can make it tricky. Reading is almost unnecessary b/c tests are based only on lecture material.

An engaging lecturer...she definately throws lots of information at you. But she really helps interested kids do well, there are podcasts and slides online. A lot of info to learn, but it couldn't be more fascinating the way she presents it. Study early for the tests...cramming doesn't work especially for this amt of memorization.

She's an excellent lecturer. She is very enthusiastic and also responds to emails quickly. Her tests are difficult however she does post prior tests. Also, she posts her lecture slides. The curve is generous it is set to an 80% She's very approachable and her class was interesting. The TA on the otherhand wasn't too helpful.

She will give everyone in the class an A if they are all willing to work for it. The tests are not easy, you REALLY need to know the material, but her methods definitely leave you smarter than before you signed up for the class.
