She is a mean teacher. Absolutely despicable.
I had her last year for chinese4 and i have her again this year for ap chinese. overall, she's not that hard but you can't afford to slack off in class. she usually goes over what's going to be on the test very clearly, so you know exactly what to study for, but she also penalizes a bit harshly(in terms of mis-written characters); however i think that's a fair trade-off. she doesn't expect you to know words we didn't go over, so pinyin is acceptable occasionally on tests, p fair overall i think
Hsia is often unreasonable. She is incredibly strict when it comes to English translations of Chinese. She will never admit she is wrong. She will often change the dates of exams or homework. She never gives out full participation. Most kids who speak once a week, a normal amount given how little she lets students speak, get 0 on quarter participation. The kid who spoke the most in class didn't even get full points. She expects a level of Chinese understanding most students do not have.
very sweet teacher. can't believe how many mean reviews there are below. maybe she changed this year. all you have to do is pay attention in class, study, and you'll be fine!
As a teacher, she's decent. Her lessons are all pretty dull and boring, as they mainly consist of lectures and copying characters. As a person, she's horrible. Ms. Hsia's ridiculously condescending, and is always throwing out thinly-veiled insults. She plays favorites, and you can easily tell. If a student she likes is talking or cheating, she won't do anything. But for any other student, she lectures him or her in front of the whole class nonstop, and then mentions how we all have no manners.
The homework she gives out is a very light amount. She explains clearly. She's reasonable. She keeps me engaged during class. She tells some stories now and then.
She is probably one of the cutest little teachers i have ever seen!! but she has craaazzyy mood swings 0_0 just say hello and goodbye and thank you to her in chinese as much as u can and she will love you haha :) but she def plays favorites ://
Miss. Hsia no doubt is a very helpful teacher, the only con(s) about her, are that she uses favoritism.
Even though Ms. Hsia is strict (as is with most Chinese teachers), she's a really straightforward. She really has the best interest of the students in mind. Just do what she says and don't sleep in he
She sent me to the deans for forgetting a pencil. Enough said.
Ms. Hsia is my favorite teacher at ahs. not only is she kind but also helpful. maybe she only likes seniors? idk. Apaches grads 09!!!
It is true she has a bad temper, is strict, and hard, but if you study for her class, you will do fine. Plus, everyone who has hsia should be thankful they don't have seto.
shes ok. she has favorites and people that she hates. just need to make sure you're on her good side. if you ever get on her bad side, dont expect to ever come back. dont expect a good citizenship and participation grade either. shes pretty strict and her tests are hard. one hundred percent on tests are almost impossible. one mistake in writing a character, which is not even the question, and you will lose part of a point, which is not proportional to the value of the problem; she takes off almost half
i like ms hsia shes a good teacher...all you people shouldnt just rate her badly because she gave you B's you probably deserved it if she did.
She favors non-Asian kids. Goes off topic often. Teaching needs improvement. Could learn from Shen. Easily angered.
She's a great teacher. She makes it interesting by talking about other topics and has really helped me improve.
She's a pretty good teacher and very funny during class. My only complaint is that she has favorites.
BEST TEACHER EVER. She's funny and acts like a little kid. I don't know why everyone hates her but shes a good teacher. Easy class..
worst teacher. she is very moody and gives students hard time. her class is so boring. i don't understand her English and Chinese
bad teacher. learn nothing from her. her English is hard to understand
She's an alright teacher. Sometimes she has major mood swings and obviously shows favoritism but she's not bad.
Some of my friends got 89.9 still received a B from Ms. Hsia. This teacher does not have heart. rude and boring teacher. I hardly understand her English and Chinese.
can't teach. Gave me a B when i deserved an A. Poor grading system. drop immidietly if you get her
Bad Chinese teacher. I don't understand her English and /or Chinese
worse Chinese teacher in Arcadia High School. very boring. she keeps talking about her personal things and her relatives
i don't understand her English either. she speaks with a very strange accent. she talks a lot of things about herself, her relatives and friends in class. it is nothing to do with learning Chinese.
Ms. Hsia teaches Chinese. too bad, I don't understand both her Chinese or English. she talks a lot of her personal life in class. we don't have interst to know. so boring. should i drop her class?
Hsia is nice enough. If you pay attention, and participate, she will like you. If you sleep in her class, she will permanatly hate you. Pay attention, and you will get an A for sure. Her tests are really easy if you study.
Just do as she says and you will ok. If u do the work well and try hard she will like you. DO NOT, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SLEEP IN HER CLASS DO NOT EVEN YAWN.
Ms. Hsia is a very cool teacher. She plays favorites a lot, and can be moody when her students are being disruptive, but overall, she's very helpful. Tip: Don't yawn in her class.
treats her students like 1st graders.she is easily annoyed and will grade you harder if you are asian
i thought ms. hsia was a great teacher. she lets you review and study for the test in class, even before you take the test. she's really nice. just be nice.
she expects too much from u if your chinese, she's really mean sometimes. and digresses off topic alot. SHE GRADES YOU SO HARD IF YOU ARENT WHITE
um...... easy on her good days but horrible on her bad days
She is nice to white people but she hates asians because she thinks they should know it already
i think this class would be hard for people who arn't chinese...
Sumtimes she kan get a bit moody... and her class is kind of boring
Nice teacher has what every girl has(mood) but shes cool (beta dan other teacher
i may look chinese but i dont speak it.u thought i did and graded me really hard
She's a pretty nice teacher...and she explained things clearly
very good at explaning things, should teach 4 and honors!
Awesome teacher. Nice to talk with. Just as the others said, though: mood swings
Nice and effective teacher, just watch out for the mood swings
Good teacher, funny class, does mood swing once in a while.
Taking her class for 3 yrs seems more like a club than a class.
had her 3 yrs, she is pretty keen, chat with her, so much better than seto.
