At first she seemed like a strict teacher and the material was relatively difficult to comprehend for me. But she is one of if not the most helpful teacher at YHS. I absolutely love her now
Great teacher, offers after school help. Her tests might be a bit hard, but they're all material previously covered in class, and require some amount of thinking.
One of my favorite teachers ever.
One of my favorite teachers at YHS
Mrs. Servedio is my favorite teacher in the science field, she is so knowledgeable, and she makes bio so much fun! She is a great person, and will challenge you on the tests. Some of them will be extremely hard, but that shouldn't discourage you. But overall, I've never liked a class or a teacher so much before. She's inspiring me to want to do something bio-related in the future. Love you Mrs. S!
Mrs. Servedio is beyond amazing. She is always there to help someone, and will even comfort one if they are upset about not doing well.. she has always been there for me and for others, and she is ultimately the reason why I want to go on to study molecular biology in the future.
wow! can we say someone's mommy wrote the last three reviews because they didn't like Mrs. S ?
there is a careful distinction by what is 'hard' in a sensible's person's vocabulary. Overloading a person with descriptive material in the form of notes(especially for a person with a bad handwriting) is wholly distinct from giving a person conceptually hard information. This does NOT prepare a person for college. Stanford gifted youth program for ap bio requires you for example to take chemistry from Oxtoby modern chemistry- a book requiring considerable math background for 1styr. chem.
One of the all around nicest and most caring woman ive ever met. Really cares about her students. I was in Honors Bio which is an insanely hard class and she taught it so well. If i ever needed help she went out of her way to make sure i knew the material. All teachers should be like her.
(this is a continuation of the review below) I got 800 on sat II reading on my own which is much harder than the honors class. Yet no amount of self study would help me do better on her overly structured labs and homeworks. I would highly recommend webassign for this class(student can use on his/her own time.. questions can be as hard as you want and assignment can be as long as you want). This course should be taught after physics and chemistry(which should be taught at the same time).contd
at first it seems like she's out to get you but once you've had her for a while you'll realize she's the best teacher you've ever had and teaches you so much. the highlighter thing seemed like balogna in the beginning....but really, it helps the students make connections with other words of the same color. If something doesn't go right with a lab, she'll fix it. If you're failing she'll make it a priority to stay after with you. Just because its a tough class doesn't mean she's out to get you.
she makes biochemistry ridiculously hard. I've known people who say their college biochemistry courses are harder than hers.
She's amazing It's just that she teaches a relatively hard class
very nice, but the class is very hard. this is the only class i need to study every night for, and im still only getting B or B
her circullum is hard, but she is helpful and nice once you get past her fast talking go servi
amazing teacher, she is the smartest woman ever haha. but there's a large workload for honors bio and she's a harsh grader
Easiness means that it is challenging but doable, not easy and pointless. Grading is harsh, but with reason. Always in a good mood. Awesome teacher. SHE IS THE BEST TEACHER IN THE SCHOOL!
She talks really fast. Take notes otherwise your literally screwed. When you hand in labs/homework, she will know if you used your notes/textbook or the internet. STRICT GRADER. Great teacher.
if you memorize and study your notes, you will do fine in the class. the best advice is to work hard and study your notes every day. she asks a lot of you but its nothing you can't do if you put your mind to it. it's possible
she is a tough teacher, but it is honors. she gives you everything you need and answers any question you have, anytime, but she expects you to do the work. btw, you would never get a 0/20 if you "had everything" in an essay
really smart but the harshest grader ever. she knows how to teach and gives u all the info u need to do well, but her tests r cheap. i got a 0/20 on the part 2 once (i still have A in class) and she admitted i had everything
Shes a good teacher. Shame we missed her for a while. But its alright becuase we got Donny.
Amazing teacher. I pretty much failed her class, but it's really helped me study for tests, and take good notes.
She's a good teacher, but very very tough. She's great if you can handle the course, but she may cause you to drop honors.
she is Very smart. I thought her grading was extremely harsh and unfair, but her tests and quizes were extremely fair. She is one ofthe most knowledgeable teachers, butgoes too fast for me and never answers inclass question
Excellent teacher. She was always there when i needed to stay after school and even now in honors chem, since she teaches general chem, i can ask her a chem question. She really knows what she's talking about and makes it fun
Worst teacher ever. Didn't know what she was talking about and wanted everyone to drop out of her class so she could socialize in the science office. notes were very vague and not helpful at all. Was never available for help
Brought my notes to college w/me and they saved me!!!
Best teacher I ever had she prepared me for the rest of my school career. She really sparked my interest in science and she her class was really a class that I will always remember
Motivated, inspired, conscientious; always there to help you and motivate you in a difficult class. One of the best science teachers I ever had.
Writes sooo fast, very hard subject and very confusing. MEMORIZE EVERYTHING!! LOOK AT ME I DIDN'T AND IM DOING HORRIBLY!!
Tough Class, but she is very helpful and is willing to do anything for her students. It is insane how much she has taught all of us, about biology and life.
VERY tough class. I hated her, but she does prepare you well. Stay with her if you really want to have a future in Biology.
It's tough-it's honors. But she's a really good teacher. Keep your bio binder, her notes are amazingly helpful, especially if you plan to do AP.
Servi's notes are unbelievable and she makes bio interesting. Inspired me to become a biochemist. Amazing teacher..WORK HARD and you will do well and learn alot
Good if you like a fast paced class but otherwise take CAUTION
Extremely fast paced and difficult class. Servi helps a lot with her organization. If you can't handle it, don't take the course.
at first I thought I wasn't smart enough fo rthe class then I realized it wasn;t me.... talk fast and learn nothing
She was always tough on me, but she was able to help me get through some disasterous stuff in my life. Luv ya Servi!!!
VERY good teacher, but I hated bio. Learned a lot though.. Physics and astrophysics > bio
Servi is God .. her notes are the best thing that's ever happened to me .. science isn't the same without them
