5c Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A
"Get ready to read"

Be honestly, she is sweet and nice, but her lecture is not really clear. She jumps super fast in the last chapter of 5C- the hardest one. The thing that i like her class are she gives up many extra credit points and her good personality, but I dont like her teaching style at all.

She is very nice and gives a lot of extra credit. Her lectures are sometimes unclear when she needs to talk about complicated theorems. Her russianness makes her very funny in class. Take her to get an A.

Professor Savchenkova is the best professor I have ever met in PCC!!!!!!!!!!It is a great waste if you don't take her class. She is fun and patient when you ask her questions. She will provide a lot of extra credit, and her tests are based on her review.

Math 5B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is great. I took her class during Summer and I got 100%+ for almost all the tests. It doesn't mean that the class is easy! Her teaching is very clear, do lot of practice, and her tests are not confusing. I studied hard everyday and I also worked 7h everyday, and did perfect. It was a hard working semester for me but I started to love calculus!

Math 5B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I agree 100% with the previous reviewer... 10 out of 10 professor IMO! If you want someone who will teach you Calculus well, take her. She's also not too difficult... I took her during the summer & got a abysmal 62 on the 1st test, but managed to get 100+ on the other tests. As long as you work hard, you'll be fine! She's also a physicist! :)

Professor Savchenkova is the best math professor I've ever seen in PCC. She taught everything with patient. She makes herself clear and easy to understand, she let me feel interested in math. Thank you Professor Savchenkova, thank you for letting me attend your class. How I regret I didn't choose your class back in Fall 2013! Thank you!

SUPER NICE professor. One of the best professor in PCC. She gave a lot of extra credit. As long as you do all the review exercise, there are no surprised in the test. The only bad thing is her accent, but you will get used to it. TAKE her!

She is a very nice and humble teacher. She did not mind to keep repeating the same problem until I understand during office hours. I got two D on my tests but I got an A at the end. She grades hard but she is straightforward, won't trick you on exam. If you study really hard enough, you can get an A. She gives you quizzes as extra credit! love her!

MATH2981 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is one of the easy professors at pcc.Tests are easy it just contain basic problems. All homework do online on webassign. But we do the test on the paper. I think that little difficult to remember formula and steps, so if you want to succeed in her class do online homework before coming to class and also practice problems in books.

MATH5C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is one of the BEST Math professor at PCC. Lecture is clear, and straight to the point. She is very cute and very nice to students. Even though she grades kinda hard, but since the tests are very easy and lots of extra credits, that should not be a problem. Only complaint is that she needs to work more on prevent cheating.

MATH2958 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I'll admit, I was dubious at first, because we fell behind schedule and she rushed through a lot of material. But, less than halfway through the semester, I began to adore her. Very direct teaching style, quirky sense of humor, helpful and communicative. Also, darned cute. I can't wait to take her for higher math classes.

Math9 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Easy tests, she gives a review that is very similar to tests, she just changes the number. Not very lenient on partial credit, so be careful when taking her tests. Homework is online. She is very helpful.

MATH5A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She's nice. Although it's hard to ask her a question while she's lecturing, you can ask her after class and she's very willing. 6 tests, lowest dropped, 1 cumulative final, HW online. Maybe 1 extra credit opportunity. Tests are simple, usu less than 10 Qs inclu 1 extra credit Q worth 5-10 pts of 100. I recommend if you can usually keep up on ur own
