She gives so much unnecessary homework, and her lessons are very unexciting. Combined with her thick accent, it is hard for the average student to enjoy or learn from the class.

Brasoveanu is smart. There's no denying it. But to be honest, she's one of the worst teachers I've ever had. I had her for honors precalc. She expects her students to understand the reasoning behind every problem, and if you don't, she yells at you that's it's pre-KKK algebra. She's hard to understand, accent and handwriting and explanation-wise, she stresses students out, and she's too smart to be teaching (not in a good way). She's funny, though. I'll give her that.

I had her one semester of BC Calculus. I personally hate her teaching style (not answering questions, yelling at you when you don't understand, picking favorites). It's hard to get an A in her class, and she always tells you it's not the grade but the knowledge that matters. I'm sure she's a nice person outside of class, but I really hate how she yells at you. She's pretty funny though and a lot of kids seem to love her (but not her "teaching"). For BC- Switch to Burnham! For Precalc- Shifrin

Worst teacher I've had. She speaks with a thick accent and if you don't understand what she did she will just say it louder and louder until you say you understand it. It's gotten better as time goes on, but I still hate her. Switch out if you have her, especially for Honors PreCalc.

Great and caring if you really get to know her. If you're unsure about her, take MVC and you won't regret it. Unlike her other courses, MVC goes much slower and is actually so enjoyable that I'm not even sleepy in the mornings anymore. Worship the parallelepiped!!!

She seems like she knows what she's doing, but she cant express her knowledge well. She doesn't express math concepts well. She sometimes doesn't teach the needed material for a quiz/test. Her work is very confusing and unorganized. Her handwriting is terrible and hard to read, adding to the fact that her work isn't clear and is very confusing. I don't like her way of teaching and it's not very clear. Her voice is so annoying and hard to understand.

I've had Mrs. Brasoveanu for three years, and she is honestly one of the best math teachers you'll meet. She truly wants her students to learn the material rather than just do it for the grades. Class is kind of a mix between math and life lessons. Sometimes she spends up to 30 minutes lecturing about how disappointing the test grades were. Tips: don't joke around until she knows you, DO YOUR HOMEWORK, TAKE NOTES. By the way, she hates all students who aren't taking Multivariable Calculus. :)

Mrs. Brasoveanu is a great teacher. Coming from Honors Algebra 2 with Tucker, and getting a B I was worried, but she proved me wrong. Not only is her teaching great, you'll come to see math in a new light by the end of her class, truly thorough and fantastic. While I have a very high B right now I've mostly had an A, and even so, I am actually learning and understanding the material. Funny, wicked smart, and overall an awesome Honors Precal teacher. Thanks Mrs. B!

I don't think she's bad at teaching easier topics but when things get a little complicated and abstract sometimes you wonder if she knows what she's talking about herself. She does not like to put in much effort; although she does seem like a sweet woman (out of class). Oh and just a heads up, you won't be able to understand her accent or read her handwriting...
