We use textbooks everyday for the hw. She is nice if you are kind to her. She always have weekly tutoring if you are struggling in her class. During class she mayn't other end able to help you but go to tutoring it seriously helps. I look forward to going to her class everyday. Tests are difficult if you don't focus. ALWAYS TAKE EXCELLENT NOTES! That's probably the number one thing I would recommend they come in so handy when you are studying for tests it's crazy. Anyways good luck!

She is the best teacher that I have ever had the luck of being taught by. I am her favorite student ever and I do all of my work. She made me student of the year, and gave me a 20 point sticker. BTW, this is a load of crap.

It's the end of the year and my opinion of her has not changed. She is very very strict and some days, she just starts yelling for no apparent reason...the room is hot and it's my fault that my parents made me go to school. From the point of teaching, she really knows her stuff. Too bad she can't teach it to us. We spend more than half the class doing the do now and then get a test on the work she teaches in 5 minutes. I feel sorry for Ms. Liu cause she was treated like a personal maid.
