She knows her stuff; that is very obvious. The problem is that she thinks that humiliating her students will somehow make them learn faster/better. If she was tough but approachable, that would be okay. Instead, her ridicule during class and even after during one-on-one sessions doesn't facilitate learning. Twenty years later, and even this A student hasn't been able to recover her self-esteem. Such a pity when she could have been a renowned teacher--in the truest sense of the word.

Seems a lot of people have pent-up, misplaced rage about Ms. Buda. She truly cares about all her students and has made MSC the premier academic powerhouse in Michigan. She's grea

Although her class is difficult, Mrs. Buda is extremely good at what she does, and she is far better than Mr. Coates. When she retires, MSC will far apart.

Buda is amazingly difficult, but if you study enough you'll do well on her tests. She's very good at making you remember the information.

She's quite difficult, but I've found that if you really work at it you can succeed in her class. Extremely frightening, but very good at what she does, just don't goof in class

She wasn't my favorite person in the world, and her teaching turned me off of math forever. But I did very well on the A.P. test. So there's good and bad.

Ms. Buda is the greatest math teacher ever. The only reason some kids don't like her is because her class is hard. Her students AP scores are off the charts.

Ms. Buda was one of the best math teachers I ever had, in high school and college combined. She expected you to work, but if you did, you learned a lot.

the AP credit wasn't worth taking her classes. College is easier than Buda. And at least I actually learned something from college.

You taught me geometry in 1984 and I appreciate all you did. (Even the paper we had to write on Euclid). Thank you - I now teach math as well.

She may be tough, but she got me a 5 on the test. I remember hating her for making me feel dumb in front of the class one time, but she's good overall.

Ms. Buda is an excellent teacher. Because of her, I got a 4 on the AP Calculus BC test and won't have to take math in college. Very hard, but willing to help.

Very good at what she does; but doesn't drill it into your head so you have to remember it on your own. You learn a lot but her tests are so hard you fail anyway.

The kind of teacher where you understand math pretty quickly (if you're paying attention). And yet you fail miserably on her tests. Or maybe it's just me.
