I had her for precal and struggled a little in the beginning and what I discovered is if she offers you help take in it. I started going in after school for help with other students and it was beyond helpful. Also she does come off intimidating in the beginning but she is a very reasonable and nice person and cares about her students and their grades. Another thing she tends to like the kids who go in for help and creates strong relationships with them which is important junior year.

Malo is definitely my favorite teacher. Yes, she is a strict grader and the class is so fking hard, but she is extremely knowledgeable about econ, and truly wants to help her students. She stayed after school with me for countless hours to help me on econ, and she even came in the weekend before APs to give us two study days with her. I got a B in her class first semester, but I got 5s on both the AP Econ exams. I wouldn't have if I had any other teacher. Thanks Malo!

Great teacher for both Econ and MV/Diff EQ, but she can be very hard. She certainly has favorites, but I wouldn't say she cuts them any slack. She's also always available. If you need help go in. She's either there to help, or will have a student on hand to answer your question if she can't.

The two recent reviews describe her well enough. I would have taken AP Economics if it weren't for the fact that she taught it at our school. I took multivariable with her. Pure hel. Thanks for the B Bich.

I had Malo for both AP Econ and MV Calculus. Her classes are by no means easy and you really have to work to get a solid A. However, she's an amazing and fun teacher, frequently available for help, knows what's she doing, and a very fair teacher. Just don't commit any of her pet peeves!

A really good teacher for economics. Is nice and willing to help you and get your grade up. Don't know why people say she's really mean.

Good AP Econ teacher, makes things pretty clear. That said, she picks a couple of favorites and they're good to go. Get her on her bad side and watch out. And she's a tad psycho, one second she's all happy and joking and the next second she's screaming like none other.

She knows her material, but she has no tolerance for anyone who doesn't. i.e., any students that take her class.

she is really nice and knows what she is talking about (AP Economics) but the class can be very boring at times. Should do other things instead of lecture only.

she teaches the material well, but often, not well enough for her own tests. in any case, if you actually do all the homework and go in for help, you'll do fine
