Had her two years ago. She's a great teacher! She really knows her stuff and also does her best to answer questions. Very strict. Not someone you want to piss off. If you're like me and only take a few classes seriously, choose her class. She does not tolerate disrespect or attitude. She does have a small amount of favoritism but it does not harm anyone. Honestly I respect her a lot. Not for the weak hearted, but keep up and you'll be fine.

Shes very tough and overall not so nice, however she's a good teacher and is willing to improvise. Hard class overall. Does pick favorites. But you will learn.

Let me tell you the truth about Dr Wang. She's very strict and gives lots of work. First quarter is probably the hardest because of the science fair and there are only two tests, each worth 24% of your grade. If you just took biology honors because you wanted .5 bump to your gpa and you get her, switch out and because trust me you will not enjoy freshman year.

Dr Wang will seem really strict in the first couple weeks, but after you get to know her and she gets to know you she can be one of the best teachers at Oakton. She's really nice as long as you do what she says and she covers hard material so well. If you have her, consider it a gift.

Dr. Wang is probably one of the greatest and most intellectual teachers I have ever had. She is a little bit though, but she is always there to help if you need it. Don't slack off in her class or she will pick on you... She is literally a straight savage. But when she does pick on kids it's funny as heck which makes the heavy work load we get in class a lot more fun. #wangarmy

Dr. Wang is the best teacher I have ever had. Many kids don't like her because she makes you work, but it all pays off. You will do just fine if you do your homework, pay attention in class, and study for quizzes and texts. I am seriously considering a job in the Science field because of her class. Thank you Dr. Wang.

I am currently in Dr. Wangs 3rd Period Class, Overall she is a nice teacher, she knows how to teach and explains the topic thoroughly. Its currently almost the end of the first quarter and I seriously struggle in her class. I cannot get any higher then a 80 on quizzes and tests in her class. i have started reconsidering becoming a doctor as a future job just because of how bad i do in her class. I consistently study for her tests a week in advance and can NEVER seem to do any good

She's super strict and scary, but because of that a lot of people end up doing really well in her class. She picks favorites and makes it obvious, but she won't hate you unless you're lazy. She's pretty funny though. If you do your work and ASK QUESTIONS then you'll be fine.

She may come off as a little bit strict but if you do your best and study a lot, you'll do well in her class. Don't procrastinate and always pay attention in class. She helped me greatly in my studies, and she really wants her students to learn the maximum amount. She motivates and pushes her students to their greatest ability. Academically, she is a great teacher. Personality wise, she's a bit harsh and strict, but can be funny and lenient at times.

She is amazing! I learned a lot from her. Its funny because at the beginning, I didn't like her at all and I tried to switch out. She is strict but she will make you get all the information in your head, ,whether you like it or not. If you need help, ASK HER! Im telling you she is willing to her and she wants to help her students to pass. However to be honest, she doesn't like people you are lazy and dont try. But ask questions and try! I absolutely loved her and I wish she teaches AP Bio too.

DR. WANG ALL THE WAY! Incredible teacher, very strict but that's what got me my A! She truly cares about all of her students and works very hard with them to get them a good grade! She TRULY prepares you for AP Biology and is by far my favorite teacher of all time! Her notes in class were amazing and if you were serious and studied, her tests were actually FUN! I'd love to take that class again. It was the best! :) don't let anyone tell you otherwise, GET INTO HER BIOLOGY CLASS AND WORK HARD!

Dr. Wang is sometimes mean but really great if you are on her good side. She likes people that play sports at Oakton and who work hard. Word of advice: seriously consider taking honors because the science fair project may throw your grade. Or if you do take honors, SERIOUSLY do a project that is straightforward and ask people that have already taken science to tell you what they did. You've probably had warning about her, but just do your homework, lay low, and you'll be fine.
