Mrs.Dillman is absolutely wonderful. She explains everything she teaches very well, helps memorization by coming up with funny and insanely effective sayings, and gives extremely fair test questions. You know a teacher's good when students complain about themselves rather than the teacher or the test questions, even when they failed the test. It couldn't be clearer that Mrs.Dillman truly cares about her students and wants them to do their best. She also has such a great sense of humor.

Mrs Dillman is probably the best teacher at Cal High. She knows exactly what she is doing and very helpful/clear. Shes also really nice and super super funny. That class is so much fun because of her amazing sense of humor. Her multiple choice is easy but sometimes the free response is hard. Overall she is a very fair and rational grader. I love Ms Dillman

Ugh. Mrs. Dillman is hands down the greatest teacher you will ever be blessed to have. She is extremely intelligent in regards to the subject she teaches; one cannot argue with her for she backs up every point she makes with UNDERSTANDABLE, LOGICAL, ACCURATE reasons. She has a very enjoyable sense of humor, and she cares about her students so so much. She is usually always around during A Period, Brunch, Lunch, and after school to assist students. Again, best math & overall teacher ever!

Class is really hard (but it's calculus, so that's a given) but she's insanely good at teaching.
And makes lame math jokes funny somehow.

Great teacher, probably the best math teacher that I have ever had. Her class is challenging, and her exams are difficult, but her teaching is super clear and way better than the textbook's. She assigns just enough problems that you understand the concepts, and is almost always available to help during class, tutorial, and brunch.

Very hard teacher. You will spend hours on some days studying your butt of for this class. Dillman is a very knowledgeable teacher, but her tests may be the hardest ones you take in high school (for sure). Give yourself a challenge, and best of all, good luck. (you'll need it). Most test averages are C-'s, and usually in the first tests you'll get a 7-8/30.

Ironically AP calculus was my favorite class in all of High School because of Dillman. She's an amazing teacher and is better than any calculus professor you'll have in college. She simplifies everything and makes the material easy to understand, you don't even need to read the book.

When I wasn't doing well in trig, I went to mrs. dillman for help and she was willing to spend around an hour and a half every few days even though I'm not even her student. She is very sincere.

Taught single variable calculus very thoroughly and prepared the class very well for the AP test. Note: This class, along with the AP test, is much easier than college calculus. University calculus is a murderer's row
