She is very harsh, but overall a good teacher.
I had Ms. Chavkin back in 2003-04 and still remember her classes. She may not be the easiest math teacher, but she always tries to help. Although I barely passed her class with a C, I ended up getting
She's mean. She has embarrassed me countless times in front of the class by making fun of me. She also refused to answer my questions.
Best teacher in the world. Even though I never had her :)
She puts effort and truly cares about the student's well being. She's the awesomest person ever. I looked forward to her class and she's very funny. Give her a chance and accept her criticism :)
Simply put, Chavkin is the best math teacher I have ever had. Don't be put off by her sarcasm - she is really a very nice person and will go to any length to help her students.
i dunno about her shes a good teacher, but often extremely picky with grading. u have to be able to get past the smart-allick way she talks to you, just dont take it personally. the class is very hard
i love mrs chavkin. she totally prepared us for the IB studies test. she might be a real mean/rude teacher during ur freshmen year but during your senior year, she is so funny and great!
Chavkin is the BEST TEACHER EVER! No just kidding. She is moany, has a total lack of enthusiasm, and really hates you because you aren't up to her superior mathematical mind. But she is good.C grade
Chavkin can be funny at times, but she treats her students like they are all incredibly stupid. She is a pretty good math teacher, but she moves on really fast. She is also really sarcastic.
I had her last year as a PIB freshman. Math has never been my forte, but I've never felt more confused in a math class, nor have I felt more intimidated in a classroom environment.
Very strict and somewhat intimidating, but I ended up learning more about math in her than any other two years combined.
Mrs. Chavkin is never available for help, and doesn't go into detail about what she is teaching you. She makes you feel stupid in the classroom.
I don't go to MoHi anymore but I still remember her classes!! She kicked me out all the time but I had fun!!!
Prepared me a lot of the IB test....Great teacher...I got a 6 on my test so that must mean something!
Prepared IB Math Studies students well for the test.
