I thought Mrs. Vera-Guerrero was a sweet, easy teacher. There is homework almost every night, which is a good way to study (she doesn't usually check it right away) The tests/oral presentations are easy as well, and there are many other opportunities to improve your grade if you fail a test or quiz or something.

At first I was a little worried bc she has a thick accent, but with time it was ok. She is very helpful for people who want the help. The test are a bit challenging but she likes to give extra credit. I would recommend here for anyone taking 102. :)

Professor Vera-G is a helpful teacher. Although we were given loads of HW, and sometimes the assignments were tidious and difficult to finish. I worked hard to get an A in this class. She grades you on attendances as well. Tests were a bit difficult.

Took her for Span 101 & 102. Easy class but a lot of work - you have to do the workbook and lab manual. Quizzes and exams are easy but only if you study. If you ask her, she'll tell you what's going to be on the test. I got a B last sem with basically no effort. Tried this sem and I'm sure I got an A. Too bad I still can't form basic Span sentences

This class is easy to pass if you pay attention. I received an A+. I had a lot of kids in my class that said she was hard, but seriously you have to put in effort to make a good grade. That means you have to study the information and not expect her to poor it down your throat. I thought she was great.

Pretty good teacher. You definitely need to study for this class (It IS a foreign language people). She could be more clear on some things but will spend more class time trying to explain if you ask. If you need help via email then do so with a lot of lead time. I typically got responses to my emails minutes before my exams which was not good

She was a good teacher, and I did enjoy the class. I felt there were some things I could have better explained. If you really want a good basis for spanish and need to go further than 102 you might want to take Kessel b/c he will explain things clearer. Otherwise she is good to work with and gives tons of extra credit.

She had some good methods to remember the material, but she does not know English well enough to be teaching in a University. There were some things I just could not communicate to her. Also, very absent-minded

Horrible professor! Not willing to help at all, even when you want it, no extra credit, hard to understand, doesn't care about u/ur grade. makes last minute decisions about hw. her answer to everything: "it's in the syllabus" When it's never there. I ended up dropping b/c she wouldn't help and I was failing don't take her! not for 102 anyway.

She is hard to understand and unwilling to help you if you have questions. There is a quiz almost every week and her quizzes are harder than the department quizzes. I wouldn't suggest that you take her.

She is a very good spanish teacher. If you need help she will expalain it to you until you get it right. She is hard to understand because of her heavy accent but overall her class is very easy if you pay attention and attend all classes.

Hard to understand. Constantly contradicting herself (e.g. wanted to do a 3-person group vice 2, she said "no", less than a minute later told the third person she could do it with us). Can be inflexible, but will help from time to time.

Very good teacher. Cant understand her very well, but the material is easy and as long as you keep up with the lab manual and homework, you should be fine. It helps alot to come to class, she goes over everything for the tests and quizzes. All in all the best spanish teacher to choose from.
