She makes material seem way harder than it really is!! she stumbles across her work and doesn't even know what she is talking about! Will not answer your questions! she has rejected many questions from peers in my class! Her test are chapter test combine into one, say chapters 1-5 in one test. DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS!

From my experience, statistics was very challenging for me. Professor Rocha is an okay instructor. She tries to help students and does her best to explain the problems. READ the textbook, so that you understand the concepts. Aplia assignments were somewhat easy. Exams were not too difficult, we are allowed to use notes.

"Tests are tough" "Clear grading criteria" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Professor Rocha really tries to guide you through the material but sometimes she got lost or just confused you more. Even though, It's a hard class you will be fine if you read the book, make good notes and work on the book exercises. For the Test you should study hard, and if you want an easy A don't take you will work for it.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Assignments galore" "Get ready to read"

Terrible, terrible, terrible! She is absolutely awful! Signed up for the course because the Professor wasn't her. Week before class starts it changed to her and there was no other classes. I literally cried. She doesn't know what she is doing at all.

she is absolutely horrible. I will report her ASAP. Aplia wasnt recording my homework on her gradebook so she gives me this whole speech about dropping the class. "You should drop the class already, youre failing. It just like smoking. You know youre gonna get cancer but youre in denial!" Theres not enough space for me to write , but theres more!!!

Although professor Rocha is funny, she cannot teach this course if our lives depended on it. She offers to help, but confuses us more. If she was a bit more organized & cared about the student's success in her class, i'm pretty sure we all would be passing. As of right now, I would NOT recommend her.

Extremely confused, unorganized, and lacks clarity in all her courses. Tries to teach the class in Spanish sometimes too, or will confuse which class she is in the middle of a lecture :( Do not recommend her. First 2 weeks of semester and already many people dropped her.

Wow! She's an ASTONISHINGLY horrible teacher! It never ceases to amaze me! If one were to take a course with her, you'd be teaching her, constantly reminding her what the topic is, and trying to keep her on track with lectures. If you desire to ask questions that never get answered, take her class. Probably the worst at SWC.

Psych211 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

It's only the second week of school and she's already horrible. She's very nice... But she does NOT know what she's talking about.. Continuously forgets the topic and can never answer any questions her students have. We are teaching her and she's writing the exams.. I don't understand how she's still able to teach!!!!!!

psych 260 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: C+

After having this teacher I decided NEVER to take her again. I preferred an online class then to have to sit in another confusing lecture. She does not know the material her tests are confusing and she is all around a terrible teacher. She is a nice person and funny but that doesnt help with learning the material.

Rocha is THE WORST professor I have had. She is unprepared for class and inconsistent with information and asks students because she doesn't know!!! This is the only class where you will do worse if you pay attention during class. She's not a good teacher. Please do something about her. She needs to find another calling because teaching is not it.

Holy crap. She's a nice lady and all but she has no place standing in front of the classroom and teaching people. She almost never knows the answer to common questions about physiology or psychology. Looks easy stuff up during class. If you've taken 1 bio class you probably know more than she does. Tests were so hard, she taught so poorly.

She is all over the place. She may talk about one thing for a moment and then about another completely different topic at times not even related to class. I had to rely solely on the textbook because she isnt helpful with her lectures. oh and on the tests they are very confusing. Want to pass this class? Dont take it with her,

If you take her class beware you have to come to class everyday, if you miss more then 3 days she will drop you. If you take her class be prepared for inconsistent information and broken promises. Even if a mistake is on her part she will do nothing to correct it.I was registered for her class next semester but dropped it and went with a diff teach

One of the worst teachers at SWC. She was constantly asking the students what something meant because she had no idea, at the beginning of class said tests would be worth 40 points then at the end of the semester told us that it was actually out of 45 points. Constantly denying things that the whole class would verify she said.
