Her class is the toughest of the tough love types.
Folded over a thousand times, my sense of study has been.
On the bright side, I'm ready to pursue anime without subtitles.
While not an easy course, she clearly puts a lot of effort into her job.
Recently she's been having many mood swings and it gets hard to bear with. Sometimes, when you genuinely put your all into something, she will find a reason to make your hard work turn into nothing, and that feeling will haunt me for the rest of my life. We're kids struggling to find purpose and reason to enjoy and learn in every class we have, but she doesn't make it easy. Sometimes her instructions are also vague and then it comes back to screw us over later on.
Helinski sensei is probably the best language teacher you'll ever get at stuy. She teaches you to love the learning experience, not the grades. She has a great sense of humor and I always laugh in her class. You have to get used to her lectures and flaming though, but I feel like she's an adult that doesn't hide certain things from her students just because we're young. Her lectures hurt but they're legit life lessons. She is overall one of the best teachers I've had in stuy :')
Sensei is truly challenging especially how she expects the best of best of the best out of everyone, but her class is very interesting. Her great sense of humor just brought learning to a whole new level. Her moral to us is that its not the grade, but its the enjoyment and learning experience that we should enjoy. I do see many of my classmates fail her test each day, but its not a big deal. She can makes your grade suffer really harshly (I'm serious), but the class stay engaging. Life is fun!
Helinski-sensei is the epitome of a challenging teacher. She consistently expects the best out of every student. However! She has the rare gift of understanding when a student has given their all but is still struggling, and does her best to make sure they are with the class.
Easily my favorite teacher!!11!1 Pushes you to work hard and makes every class interesting. Sometimes tests can get you depressed, but its all about the learning, not the grade!!!
She is a really good teacher and every class is interesting, but the tests are very difficult and you have to devote a lot of time to studying. The textbook has a lot of helpful information but her teaching goes beyond the textbook so you have to pay attention. Sometimes she gets mad if the class does not understand but usually she will help you with your work.
She literally traumatized me. She is the reason that I feel like if I ever try to do something, I will fail.
She is so awesome! Her class is amusing and you'll learn a lot. You really have to understand the material to get a good grade on her tests but she teaches well enough for you to do that in my opinion. She is the best!
I love sensei even though I'm only a freshie. She really is nice if you pay attention, try hard, and do your homework. She really explains everything and is funny. Be on her good side! I really enjoy Japanese with her.
Love her. You really gotta study though C:
She's a great teacher. Even though she may show favoritism, she gives grades based on what you deserve. She very helpful, tutoring teaches alot if you don't understand.
I've learned so much more than how to understand Japanese quite fluently from her class. She is the most encouraging, wonderful teacher in the world. To any incoming freshman who's reading this: pleas
She has strong favoritism, mood swings, and can say the meanest thing a teacher would ever say to you. Her class is probably the hardest language class in Stuy. But everybody stays in her class becaus
not an easy teacher, but she's funny and makes the class exciting and tries to help us undetrstand
Sensei is the only reason why I go to Stuy. She's an amazing teacher and I've learned so much from her. If you work hard and show effort you'll really be able to do well in her class.
Sensei is absolutely amazing. She teaches Japanese in such a way that transcends the textbook.
keep up the spirit! sensei likes an active class and she gives you the same energy you put into your work. ask for help when you need it! and appreciate the lectures -- they're... usually meaningful
I think someday, she will snap and destoy us all. But other than that she's a great teacher! She makes sure that we understands the material while getting her entertainment at our expense.
she's one of the most biased teachers i've ever encountered. she holds grudges against students, and if she doesn't like you, your grade will be affected. have fun.
I think the moral stimulus was worth all the failing grades I'd received in this class!
She's a good teacher but it's a lot of work. If your class loses motivation or enthusiasm, she will too.
she embodies the true spirit of a teacher but gets let down too easily by underpreforming students (its a hard class). That said, she's extremely likable and is one of my favorite teachers.
At times a bit quick with the material, but she is very fair with a wonderful personality and sense of humor. =) Wish more language teachers were like her. Could've had a better lit room also. =O
EXTREMELY tough, but is always there to help if you show that you want it. Very logical and fair. My grades are low, but I know that I'm learning for the long run. FUN and spontaneous.
she's a really good teacher and covers all the material while being funny and connecting with the class. Careful how the class preforms overall however because if it's bad she'll break down sometimes
I love her sense of humor and she makes the class so fun. She can tell whether your really trying or just slacking off. Her test really show how much you pay attention in class.
Moooood swings and lectures. But she can be very goofy and helpful, which is cool. She's a little too judgemental, which is why she has so many issues with the school and kids, but at heart she's a dedicated and fair teacher.
I used to think that she was a good teacher, but this year... Her grades nowadays seem more and more dependent on how much she likes you, and less on her work. And her sanity? She has mood swings randomly. Good luck.
Helinski is the best. No doubt about it. She is funny, covers material fast and well, and is helpful!
Just 'cause you don't work hard and get bad grades from her shouldn't be the reason you rate her badly. She's tough, but she teaches well. Her class is fun.
her class? if ur a good student u can do it. her sanity? I'm not sure. She broke down in the middle of my class crying and yelling "you all like Mr Rolle better!" ...scary...
although her class is pretty difficult, she's such a helpful teacher, she will go out of her way to help you with class or with life...miss you sensei...'03
Helinski is the best teacher at stuy. She will go as far as she has to to help any student. THe class isn't easy, but fun, and she will help u if u need anythin
Coolest language teacher ever. We definitely have fun in her class. Gives hard tests, especially listening lessons, but always try to help us help ourselves.
Sensei is a great teacher. Could be high on sugar but she's cool. She gives out candy and lets us play bingo. The tests are horrible but she makes up for it.
Sensei is the best! She's fun and jokes around, who wouldn't want to be in her class?
