She's an instructor, but she gets ticked fast; too fast. Keep questions to a minimum. Fear is a motive when you have her around.

She's a little intimidating at first but as long as you keep questions that are commonsense away from her, you're fine. When I had her in the lab, she's very helpful and tries to correct mistakes for you. It's easy to know that she loves Analytical Chemistry so just try to be accurate and precise and don't screw around in the lab.

Very rude to students, makes them feel stupid and immature if they have questions or need help. She hardly does anything during the labs, which is a good thing. TAs are amazing, but Karen ruins the lab experience sometimes, even when observing her interacting with other students.

Karen is rotten. Terrible instructor, places too much emphasis (ie: 8/10 or more) on your number result that you took 3 hours to write up. If she thinks her lab equipment warrants that kind of accuracy, she is out to lunch. This woman is senile, and scared the**** out of me in the lab.

Karen loves analytical chemistry and it shows. She encourages everyone and is always available to answer questions. The lab marking is strict but fair, based on precision and accuracy, something that every student should expect (she warns the class about this several times at the beginning of the course).

THe most horrible woman I ever had to work with. She is self-absorbed and cares only about the students in somuchas they do not bother her. Not the qualities I look for in an instructor. She is supposed to be there to teach and mentor, not to belittle.

She knows more than the students, which you'd expect of the instructor. But she will be all too happy to remind you of it with her arogance. She either likes you or doesn't and takes a very different tone with students based on this. She behaves and interacts with the students as if she wants to piss people off.

Very nice lab instructor. I think that as long as you don't talk to her much to annoy her, then you'll be fine. She's always available for help in her office, alhough she's very organized so make sure you're on her level!

Karen Thompson is an anti-teacher. The whole lab was full of imtimidation and fear. Learned nothing here, and had a very unpleasant time too.

Brags about going on trips to australia or cruises or rock concerts while I'm standing there shivering with holes in my jacket. Another fine example of our tuition money gone to good use. She is absolutley batty, and if you get on her bad side lord help you!!

I had her for my lab instructor, and she was always there to help. She knew the labs well; ready to answer any question you have. You can even go in before a lab to ask questions, so you'll always get perfect on the write-ups.
