Never have I had such an exceptionally clear and wonderful teacher! Mrs. Levy helps you streamline your studying with her lectures and makes sure that memorizing information isn't a pain (yay for her jokes)! For tests, read the text book (even though it's a pain). Review her notes. Ask someone to quiz you about the chapters! Most important of all, read the questions CAREFULLY! AP Bio isn't a monstrous class. Enjoy and work hard!

Mrs. Alleyne Levy is super great. She basically provides you with everything you need to do well. Ppt, vocab, and doing your hw will get you through the year no problem. Not an easy class by any means, but the tools you need to succeed are literally laid out in front of you. Also if you enjoy corny bio jokes, this class is for you. Overall super chill environment.

Levy is a great teacher, very knowledgable and fun to talk to. Review her powerpoints, read the chapters, and study the study guides other people do online and you'll be set for the tests. Make sure you go to tutorial to ask her questions though.

Levy is an amazing TEACHER. She is probably the most knowledgable person I have ever met. Her passion for biology really shines through, so it's super awesome to go talk to her about your favorite bio topics after class! The tests are extremely hard, you need to review her lectures AND read entire textbook chapters. She's not the friendliest person but she is still an amazing teacher and reciprocates passion for biology. AP Bio was my favorite class, but it IS A LOT OF WORK!!!!

A great teacher! You can score high on every one of her tests just by following her lectures (assuminig you are sharp). Adding on the fact that she went to Stanford, she's extremely intelligent. He

If you take the class you will get a 4 or 5 on the AP test guaranteed. She's really nice, class isn't very fulfilling, a lot of pointless babble between students and her, but it's chill.

She's clear, pretty funny in a cheezy way, and her teaching does, doubtlessly, lead to a high AP score. I'd say it really depends on whether you can appreciate her sense of humor. She's nice, though.
