Her class can be very hard at times but overall ms ambia tries to make it fun and tells a lot of jokes. She cares for her students and if you reach out to her she can help you a lot.
She is an amazing and very knowledgeable teacher. Overall, she is extremely friendly (she makes jokes in Spanish) and helpful (if you ask for help). Disrupting the class and not paying attention will definitely get you on her bad side and she WILL call you out if she notices that you're not paying attention. I must admit she does have a favoritism in the classroom. Just make yourself known and participate a lot. Her tests can be hard, but just make sure you study SHE TELLS YOU WHAT TO STUDY.
She's a very sweet lady. Obviously, if you talk in class and are generally disruptive, she won't be as kind to you. But she's usually just really nice to everyone. She's a good teacher, too, and does a better job of explaining than carpenter and she's infinitely better than flores (lol). Participation won't hurt, and she curves up for your final grade. she's one of the better Spanish teachers. She's an easy grader but still teaches, and she's super nice.
Great teacher, even though her talking in Spanish can take a while to get used to. Her training lets you eventually understand Spanish at full speed and speak it fluently by making you speak only in Spanish.
Ms. Ambia is an awesome Spanish teacher. As long as you are polite, pay attention, and study for the exams, you will get a good grade. She also likes people who raise their hands a lot.
Great teacher. I was lucky to have her more than once. She is fair and as long as you study you'll have no problem. She even takes the time to teach things outside the curriculum but makes you actually want to learn the language.
overall lenient teacher warning: does not tolerate sleepy students likes to call on students that are dozing off, or talking in class, persistently. She can be very cruel in that aspect.
Ambia is such a great teacher! She's so chill and understanding. She genuinely cares about you and is so helpful if you're having trouble! She's also pretty funny and just a great person overall so you know you'll never fall asleep in her class. She also throws parties (unlike most teachers) and sings/dances and is just very leniant. I've had her for 2 semesters and Senora Ambia is definitely one of my favorite teachers at Stuy by far!
She's pretty chill but it's abit hard to take notes. However, most of the stuff is from the txbk so its pretty easy to study
Love this teacher! Explains things very well and always willing to help if you don't understand. Fair tests and not much hw. gives candy during test reviews if you answer a question right and lenient.
She's a horrible teacher. Always comes late to class and picks on people. She likes to call people names and make fun of them.
One of the good spanish teachers. Participation is a must in her class! Keep her if you ever get her!!
Occasionally late? She is late almost everyday, sometimes some other teachers needs to come and open the door. Most of the time we stand outside and wait for her because the door is locked. She only t
great teacher! very creative in teach methods and makes sure you understand! occasionally late for pd 1 class
Plays favorites and be careful to get on her bad side.
she's the best spanish teacher i've ever had! way better than flores. her class is usually fun, but she gives a lot of hw compared to other. must study for tests, but she's nice and teaches well too!
shes nice and her class is fun, but her tests are hard. she plays some favorites and she can be mean to you like all language teachers.
She's a sweet lady and her Spanish is easy to understand. I don't see why she would get any bad ratings.
some loser gave her a string of bad ratings. she is incredibly nice and helpful; one of the best teachers i had at stuy
A 91 test average decent participation and perfect hw record will get you a mid to high ninety
Nice and amiable. Had her for two years. She's tough on tests and gives lots of assignments. Don't get on her bad side, because she will strike you down.
what a wonderful teacher!! she is very good at teaching things in ways such that you can remember her explanations, and she's also very nice =) I loved her
I love this teacher, very helpful and speaks both english and spanish extremely well, so she can actually explain things. she's a nice person, too
dont get on her bad side,Will abuse you indirectly. She is very smart and carefull about it. However, her exams are easy...Not the best teacher but you will learn something.
That person below me who had Ambia for 4 terms is probably the luckiest Spanish student ever.
one of my absolute FAVORITE teachers ever. is one of the few who can actually teach and maintain a relaxed and fun environment within the classroom without sacrificing quality. generous grader. BONUS: she's hilarious! <3
awesome teacher, i had her for the first term, the class is really fun and got good grades with her
Nice teacher. Easy tests, but she still teaches the material.
very nice, tests vary from hard to absurdly easy. helpful and fun.
Participate, participate, participate! Answer questions lots, do your homework, and pass her tests for at least a 95. Must know your accent marks though.
very nice teacher. Tests are not very difficult and she explains the content well enough.
this lady is hilarious in all aspects of the word. she's also really cool, a really good teacher and pretty lenient. she's super random, and she doesnt know what D4 (in a car) means. loves her 2 daughters and her students
super easy... her tests are no brainers cuz she writes the vocab on the board as word banks =)
I think she's a great teacher even though I did horribly in her class
I did horrible but it was my fault but shes a great teacher.
thought she was mean at first, but turned out to be a great teacher I learned a lot
GREAT TEACHER... really made spanish fun to learn, looked forward to class every day
She's cool, but she can be annoying seomtimes, like when you disagree with her.
Senora Ambia is very cool. She shows us Shrek in Spanish and encourages participation with witty little projects
Great teacher teaches what you need to know and in a straight forward easy way. Just watch out for the sesame street spanish songs i found those alittle scary
Very nice. Not quite as easy as one would expect. But no real problem either.
shes the nicest teacher and you learn a lot from her
shes an OKAY teacher..not great..just study and dont say stupid things..
