Really nice person, friendly. But AWFUL teacher. She can't communicate well, her lessons are disorganized and incoherent, and punishes students for asking questions she thinks are stupid.

She was really nice, and would go over anything, never calling anyone dumb for what they asked! I loved her, though she wasn't the most captivating: a lot of people would doze off...

OMG. Arora is amazing. Her class starts off slow. HOWEVER, you'll find out that the class catches up by the end of the semester. She is very thorough, and willing to go over every problem a student has. She is also very friendly. Her tests are easy because she teaches so well. You will be very prepared for finals/regents. Her accent might be a bit difficult to understand, but it's not that bad. Very nice person as well.

She teaches most topics well, but can be unclear w/ a few. The main thing is to be on her good side: just listen and participate a lot (knowing a bit helps); she'll like you for the rest of the term.

ms. paik really ruins the 9th period regents chem class since she's ms. arora's assistant, but ms. arora herself is a good teacher. The only problem with her is that she needs to accelerate the class a little bit

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Ms. Arora, but I hate how she's such a pushover. My regents chem class always asks her to push tests back and she lets. It makes us go really slow. I'm actually worried if we're gonna cover enough for finals

Definitely one of the easier chemistry teachers. She's nice and funny. She teaches us not too much more than we need to know for the regents [can be viewed as an advantage or a disadvantage]. We rarely have to read the textbo

One of the best teachers I've ever had. If you want to learn something in her class, she explains stuff pretty well and gives fair homework and tests. If you just want to slide by with a good grade, that's also pretty easy.
