She moves extremely fast and doesn't like going back or taking questions. Her office hours aren't flexible at all which makes it hard to seek help, since she will only explain things in the morning. She explains something MAYBE two times after the original teaching and then gets fed up and stops.

Mrs. Coulon's is a wonderful lady, and a great but strict teacher. Her tests are INSANE! But if you pursue her for extra help she'll take care of you!

Her class is so hard. She likes to belittle her students. She can help you out on a test by curving the test a little and that's nice, but her tests are so hard to start with.

Even though I am the epitome of mathematically challenged, I loved taking Mrs. Coulon's class. Although she is strict, she's a wonderful, caring, and understanding person. Thanks for a great year Ms. Coulon! -Patenaude!

Did she not explain herself thoroughly and give you ample time to ask questions? Did she not explain exactly why her tests are impossible to pass?
