She's quite good, has an okay sense of humour. She doesn't know how to use the internet. Sets a lot of work. She's quite clear, and I would say she's easy to understand. There's no need to say she's awful, because she's quite nice. She's alright!

Unfortunately there were wayyy too many unsuitable handouts and so much paper waster when photocopying a sentence onto A3 paper. Despite this she was a lovely lady.

as a person she is friendly but as a teacher very dull and obsessed by handouts that she is yet to realise nobody reads. Despite this i felt more prepared for her AS module than any other.

After any point, she goes into a stream of conciousness of listing quotes - relevant or not. Sets far too much work at times, and does little marking or teaching - it's all "peer work" at AS.

Takes the wrong approach, fires handouts at us, doesn't explain and annoys her class. Expects too much at times, too much homework and summer work is more like a terms worth! Can be really nice though
