BIOL 2160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Anne is a super nice teacher and really knows her stuff, and will help to explain difficult material. However, lectures can be hard to maintain focus on and test material is a little scattered.

I adore Ann. You might not feel like you are learning as much as you should be at times, but Ann helps you build lasting knowledge, not temporary memorization. Such respect for her as a person and a professor. You have to open your mind to her way of teaching and you will absorb a lot more (permanently) than in other classes.

considering it was her first time ever teaching biochem, i think ann did a decent job. she's really straightforward, so just read the notes and the text. the final exam had a lot of the exact same questions as the review questions given in class.

Like what other people said, very nice person, but not a very good teacher. Lags on the simple things and skims over the harder things, and it would be better to use the textbook to get a better understanding for those things than ask. Confusing tests; I aced the midterm but almost failed the final, even though I studied much harder for it.

Goes into great detail about simple concepts, skims over complicated topics. Wastes a lot of class time talking about herself, then panics and rushes through without really explaining anything. HORRIBLE educator. Won't learn anything from lectures but study the textbook as her tests are very difficult but fair.

Ann was a different teacher than what I was used to. Her tests and quizes are composed of multiple choice from a test bank and long answered questions from class. To do well, study the online multiple choice and long answer questions from the text. Believe me, you will thank me for this advice. Heavily rely on the online testing materials!

Ann's attitude towards the class is extremely unprofessional. She needs to take things less personally and to just teach. She is passionate about her subject but not a very good lecturer. If you attend class she notices and will mark your work less hard. Also, you can go to her office after you get a test back and argue for a better grade.

Ann is really nice, but she isn't the best teacher. she's not always clear about what she wants you to know, but her tests are very fair. she's also a fair marker and really wants her students to do well.

Lovely, intelligent person, she loves her subject, easy tp listen to, extremely willing to sit down and explain or help if you are honest and willing to learn. not the best lecture notes though.

I enjoyed this class and found Anne helpful and responsive. The labs were also great, and this course made me more interested in microbiology.

WORST hypocritical professor I've EVER had! She randomly yells @ students for not being prepared when she's never prepared herself! She doesn't cover any test material in class and just expects you to know it, not to mention that she takes marks off for bad grammer (when she can't even formulate a complete coherent sentence)!

Tough course, but I enjoyed the way Anne presented the material. Some of the notes could be improved on, but overall it was pretty good.

I have never done so poorly in biology before. She had horrible notes and I could barely understand her english. She'll teach you Thai, but not the course. You will have to teach yourself the course which isnt too hard, but with her tests they are very vague and her marking is ridiculous. I wish i knew now what i didn't know then.

Anne is a very sweet person who cares about her students and obviously likes what she does. That said, I hated her class. I am not a person to skip, and I skipped her classes frequently. This is the first university class that I have disliked, and although I got an A+, I credit reading the text. I would avoid this prof. at least for first year.

If she didn't take thigns so personaly I'd have more respect for her professionla opinion.However, she does take things too personally and this shows lack of professionaliam which is a blow to her as a teacher. She should really just do her job and be clear.

Ann is great! Her accent is tricky to understand sometimes, but SHE will go over something as much as you need so that it is clear to you. She's a VERY nice lady!
