Ms. Dion is an excellent teacher. Although the tests are hard, you should expect some difficulty as it is an honors class. It is not an easy A, but if you work hard you will do well. Ms. Dion is also very nice and is willing to help you during lunch if you are having trouble with math.

Homework is easy. However, the tests are much more difficult than the homework. You have to either really understand the concept or get a tutor because what she teaches in class is not enough. She does give help and her answers are very clear.

She is a great person and a knowledgeable, flexible teacher. If I didn't understand something she would take the time to explain it to me until I felt comfortable with the concept. I really enjoyed her class and I learned a lot.

Teaches straight from the textbook. She rarely lets students answer her questions. She answers them herself, and teaches the minimum. She doesn't go in depth. The homework is easy, straight from the textbook, but the tests are very hard. You need to study for them. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

Great teacher, really kind and thoughtful. She's really laid back about most things, and has a pretty good sense of humor. I highly recommend her

Ok here it goes: If you want to learn and be successful in this class: 1. Study a lot because she doesn't teach at all. She teaches straight from the textbook so really, math class is useless. 2. Tutoring (If needed)
Teaching all from textbook

She is an easy teacher, though lacks something very important- the ability to break free from a structured curriculum and her habitual routine lectures. Making the students enjoy the lesson is not that hard to do. For starters, she can ask students t

Boring, but AP stat with her is a ridiculously easy class. However, She actually checks your homework, so you can't BS it. Just memorize the notes, and you'll ace the class!
