6 evaluations Recognizes Student Difficulties: 0.50 Presents Material Clearly: 0.33
This professor is teaching because she is a grad student trying to make some extra cash. This is not only a fact, but evident in her ability to present material, come to class prepared or otherwise give a shit about whether or not the students in her class actually understand the material. If you are starting to grasp a concept to soon in class, she'll stop you and say you aren't supposed to know that yet. Is that education? Her homework grading is the definition of arbitrary and the tests she gave look like the questions were hand-picked by a four-year-old. That's because she picked only questions from the book that had pictures. As if that makes them easy problems. Only about a fourth of the class even finished the midterm. Seriously, physics 141 isn't that hard, but she might as well have been teaching quantum mechanics in latin for how much useful information was taught in that class. I haven't received my grade yet for this quarter, and I'll probably pass, but for the sake of the education we're all paying for, don't take her class.
WHAT WHAT WHAT!?! what do you want mitra! Constantly speaking in the third person, saying WHAT! I couldnt handle her at all. She cannot teach. Thats it. She is kind of nice in her office hours, but in class prepare to have no idea what is going on. She has an extremely thick Iranian accent that is impossible to follow, and a lot of what she says gets lost in translation. Her tests are hard and she is a TOUGH grader. She may mean well and may be smart, but she should never ever ever teach again. Sorry to be mean, but please avoid her.
She is a terrible teacher. She is nice and professional but everything she says gets lost in translation when she teaches, and it is SO hard to follow. She also never smiles, ever.
Mitra was an ok teacher. He is really hard to understand when you first have him. He does understand that he is teaching hard concepts and does his best to help students with what they do not understand. However he is not a good teacher and I would recommend someone else.
Fine teacher, but a little dry in the presentation. I wouldnt suggest having her at 8:00 in the morning, might be difficult staying awake.
