Many people may disagree with a lot of what I am about to say. Ms.Ravitz may seem strict and a little cold sometimes, but honestly she is a very funny teacher with high standards. I'm not doing the best in her class, but I am starting to understand her class more even though geometry is one of my weaker subjects. Go to her regents review sessions in the morning, it's extremely helpful and Ms.Ravitz goes through everything in detail! Also, she always posts answers to review sheets with work.

Funny, approachable, and nice, and is also a master in the subject, tests are based solely on classwork, but sometimes might be hard to finish. Anyone that is good at geometry will consider her class easy, however if you are bad at it consider a tutor as sometimes she is not clear, and goes through some topics quite fast, so make it clear that you need tutoring. understands her students

Rushes through lessons and doesn't provide adequate or legible explainations. Often unclear in instructions and doesn't seem to care about students' understanding. Also seems to very clearly use favoritism. Most students who had or currently have her will agree that you must heavily rely on self teaching if you take her class. However, she would be an ideal teacher for those who find geometry easy and enjoy the fast pace.

Goes too fast through hard stuff and spends too much time in easy stuff. Tests are way to hard, all handwritten, not enough time in period to finish them. Mean and unforgiving.

Wastes so much time, and as a result, she rushes through the period, hoping us students absorbed the information and knowledge she was talking about. Puts many lengthy questions on her tests, making it very unfair for us, to the extent where some are not even able to finish (ridiculous).

I hate to use this word, but she is the worst teacher in history. She doesn't care who does bad or who fails or what. Her teaching style proves that the only thing she cares about is her paycheck. Fast paced teaching in which she doesn't STOP when someone asks her to slow down. Doing useless tactics such as not providing help unless you arrive at her expense at 7:00am (In my opinion, shows the pinnacle of her hangover). All throughout class she shoves skinny pop down her throat.

Ravitz has been one of my favorite teachers this year. She knows how to keep things fun and relaxed, even when things get challenging. Not many Tech teachers can do this. Geometry actually is easy for me too!

She is not a bad person but explains everything really fast. Keeping up with what she is saying is probably THE greatest challenge in life. Just tells us to copy after she explains it in supersonic speed. Looks just as bored as the rest of the class. She looks way happier eating her skinny pop.

She knows a lot but doesn't teach at a reasonable level.
She gives tests where questions are worth 15 points each.
She doesn't offer help unless you come in at 7 in the morning.
All she does is eat skinny pop
Lau was the greatest.

All i see her do every day in class is stuff some skinny pop in her mouth. She's an alright teacher, favors some over others. Teaches too fast, makes assumptions, GIVE 0's because we didn't the correct work she wanted us to do.

She doesn't know how to use a computer or put homework online; teaches at a ridiculously fast pace and isn't available for extra help unless you come see her at "7 in the morning". Her tests require a period and a half to finish in only 1 period.

I LOVE Ms. Ravitz. She is an excellent teacher who knows how to thoroughly cover every topic. Her tests are firm, but fair, and it is not too easy to do well in her class, but it is achievable with a little effort. She did an excellent job preparing e for the regents and I am so glad she was my teacher. Also, she is very funny and being in her class is always enjoyable. I miss her very much.

Tests are reasonably easy, ok teaching. However, she needs to stop speeding through lessons in 5 mins or less and talking about food/her family for the rest of the pd. Not the worst, but not the best

Great teacher; I'll admit that she is sometimes hard to follow and may be a specific grader (that can work to your advantage with partial credit, though!), she is a master of her subject and she makes class enjoyable. If you pay attention, do homework, and take the time to study, you'll be fine for the class.

At first she was going very quickly but now i'm starting to adjust to her teaching style. The only bad thing is that her tests have less than 15 questions and each section being worth 8-15 points.

when she gives us more notes to copy, she never gives us enough time to copy it. thus, we don't get the next topic. to add more insult to injury, she teaches too fast. she's a nice person though.
