Selected Comments

Professor Comments

Student Comments

  • "was able to keep a well paced schedule while ensuring that the students actually understood. 10/10 would recommend her!"

As someone who is only minoring in Economics, she made the class very easy to follow and ensured that all students were on the same page before she would move on to a new topic. Homework problem sets were very challenging, but she did a good job of making sure students had sufficient time to complete them with many resources for help at their disposal. "
