Dr Steel is SOOO cool! Even though a lot of people in my class didn't like the class, she made stats really interesting for me that it became my favourite class.

She moved me away from my fellow students when i was discussing the work. She teaches in a really confusing way, and generally avoids our questions and teaches something irrelevant.

Excellent Statistics teacher, at least. I had them for Statistics in Year 13. Very good at explaining concepts, although you'll sometimes have to put in a little work to apply those to the exams - you can do that just by looking through the mark schedule of past exams, though. They even organize useful, fun, interactive activities to help you understand better.

she is a nice person in terms of personality but personality doesn't pass you NCEA. she is a horrible teacher and confuses you even if you understand the topic. If you get her i highly suggest moving class or you WILL regret it

Her teaching is really bad and not understandable as well. I felt really hard to catch up my maths in some areas cos she speaks too fast and can't handle the progress of the class well. She can't even control the class and let too much spaces out without teaching more in patience. Thats a weird experience this yr to have her maths lesson. She is always late to the class, annoying!

She's a genius, but a bit vague, so people find it hard to keep up. A bit eccentric, the class often spaces out. well i do anyway

No control over class, always looks at the ceiling and has a PhD in some random water plant.

RRRR she constantly look somewhere at the wall at the back of the class room. She goes way to fast and teaches stuff weird. I heard from someone she doesn't follow the curriculum way of teaching. Wouldn't be surprised. Yes when she doesn't like you she tells you you should have been listening when you actually don't understand.

Means well but doesnt seem able to control her students. Somehow just manages to make everything confussing and was easier just to not listen to her so she couldnt confuss you

She's really nice and tries really hard...but it just doesn't seem to be enough to be able to teach the class anything. Our class seemed the only one that wasn't able to get a single excellence.

teaches ONLY from the textbook. Doesnt warn us of an varations of a certain mathematical concept, therefore you are limited to gaining Achieved and sometimes merits. Olnly teaches the basics.

Tries to please everyone all the time, she should choose one method and stick to it. Good teacher if she could actually control the class so that they're not constantly interrupting her.

She's a really good teacher but she tends to focus more on Achievement questions. This is really unfair as most people would like to aim for Merit and Excellence.
