One of the best teachers I've had for. She's really helpful when you go to SGI, but her tests are crazy. She really does try her best to make the tests easy for the students though. You really need to study. Somewhat hard to pay attention during her classes, but if you don't understand something ask her.

She teaches a hard curriculum, and people seem to have trouble getting through that. If you give up from the beginning, then don't bother finishing. She's an amazing teacher and all-around good person. I will always remember her class.

Dr. Brauerman is a really, really knowledgeable teacher. She goes in-depth with most, if not all her subjects and classes, and is witty and funny to boot. However, she does give very hard tests and a large homework load, and on occasion during the year there are several ~20+ page lab writeups (even with printing on both sides). Studying and a good knowledge of how to take notes and udderstand them and remember them is very helpful in her class. Her teaching prepares you very well for final exams

She is one of the best teachers I have ever had. Her methods of teaching are excellent--she leads the class to conclusions and explains concepts multiple times until they are understood. The workload may be hefty at times, but it's bearable. You can tell that Dr. B actually cares about her students' success and understanding in school.

One of the best teachers you can ever have! She is so caring about her students and only hopes for the best of them. Although it may seem there's a lot of work, it's still manageable if you can plan your time wisely. I've learned a lot from her class and come to love science more and more. Definitely the most inspirational teacher I've ever had.

Dr. Brauerman is a great teacher...at first her class is ridiculously hard, but it gets easier...her tests are even harder...just ask her exactly what is going to be on the test, she will sit down with you, tell you the topics, and you're good to go... my grades were in the 70s in the beginning, but now that i have this "technique" my last grade was 101.
