Loved Mrs. Mathew as a teacher!!! I only had her for honors, and it was pretty tough, but I'm so glad I went through it. Mrs. Mathew is smart, witty, and fun to have as a teacher! Had her freshman year then went on to keep in touch all the rest of high school. Just study your book and PowerPoint, ask smart questions, and don't act stupid in her class- she'll like you and help you out. Love you Mrs. Mathew!!!

I had her for both Honors and AP bio and it was not the worst thing in the world. If you read the book you are guranteed atleast a B. I would say that her style of teaching worked better in her honors class than her AP class. I really don't remember learning anything knew in her AP class. AP Bio is definitely hard but it isn't the hardest class at Heritage. You'll be able to pass the AP exam because the class is much more confusing considering she used USABO questions for our practice tests lol.

She definitely knows her subject matter but doesn't mean she teaches it well. She seems overwhelmed and scattered and not as committed as she pretends to be. She thrives in knowing that parents dislike her and enjoys having a reputation of being a "tough" teacher. She is mediocre among all the teachers at American Heritage.

Mrs. Mathew is to American Heritage, as to what Prof. McGonagall is to Hogwarts-- stern, on top of things, knows what she is doing, and shoots tons of snarky comments, yet is loved by many of her students, and is especially respected by those who work hard and are committed to learning Biology. AP is challenging, but worth it because of the Republican Curve, great labs, and excellent teaching.

Taking her AP class next year! All you have to do to pass her Honors class is listen, ask questions (that aren't silly) and actually study. She does not give study guides! You actually have to read the book and learn to understand the information, not just memorize things last minute that you'll forget immediately after the test. Go to her extra help days to show that you CARE!

Do not be afraid from the rumors that surround her class. Although her class is challenging, it is very possible to get an A. She is a wonderful person and will do what she can to help you.

Second best class I ever took at AHS. Not one day was boring. She knows what she's talking about. Only thing is that it is not an easy class so study. She does give curves for Honors but not AP Bio.

Ms. Mathew is, by far, my favorite science teacher of all time. Her class is tough and you must set aside time to study for her class, but her funny personality will have you looking forward to her class. She guarantees a 5!

Even though her class is one of the hardest I've ever taken (including my college courses), she's still one of my favorite teachers. She made learning bio fun, and though she graded hard, she DID give us a sort of curve!

Quite a difficult honors bio teacher, but I learned a lot. If you study hard and learn to apply, not just memorize, the concepts, you'll be fine.

She's so smart and really knows her stuff. Her class is hard but that's because biology is hard. I don't know what people mean, she gives time for everything she assigns. Don't be lazy and study you'll atleast get a B .

Her honors i must say that her class is easy after entering her ap class. She knows what she is talking about. This is shown by the fact that the avarage grade of her class on the ap was a 4.8 (5 is the perfect score)

Not a good teacher at all. Gives tests and quizes online every weekend and sometimes 3-4 times per week. Won't review any questions for an upcoming test and thinks every student cheats. Hates parents.
