She is an extremely hard working teacher but most kids that she taught do not care enough for the subject. I feel like she may very well teach at a university level however her students do not care enough to study or pay attention. Her lessons were half boring and half funny but looking back on my freshmen year, she was a great teacher. She literally got carpal tunnel syndrome from trying to correct everyone's HOMEWORK. Not even tests. She really cared and was hard working. I regret not trying.

Super cool teacher, and one of the smartest i've ever met. She's strict but not in a mean way. If you pay attention, take notes and do your homework you'll t along just fine with her and you'll do well in her class. However her tests are really hard so you have to really study for them.

I had Chu in freshmen year for lab. She didn't like my group in general so I think she picked on us a lot. Lab made absolutely no sense at times and we always did them right before they were due together. When I think back to Chu, I remember a strict, grumpy lady. I liked lab only because my group was awesome, other than that, freshmen lab was horrible with her.

she gets sidetracked kinda often although sometimes she is funny. however this means that her students r really unprepared for her tests which are really hard for no reason. if ure gunna get 70s on her tests, ure gunna get a 90 on the regent (my case). good luck bk tech freshman

She is a great person, but a horrible teacher. She tries to teach but she gets sidetracked a LOT. It's true, she does care and she will do anything she can to give you a non-failing grade. GLHF with her tests though. They're killer. Bu at the end of the year, she's really friendly

She really knows what she teaches. She is not easy, but her tests are NOT ridiculous and if you pay attention you will do well in her class and lab! If you need help with something, she is always willing to help. Probably the "coolest" teacher I had freshman year. She lets you make up labs that you didn't hand in previously and gives you many chances to achieve a good score on the regents.

Shes a teacher who has a "sick" sense of humor. Her classes arent thatt boring cuz she makes it funny. There isnt a lot of participation in the class cuz she does most of the talking. But if you need help with something, all you gotta do is ask and she takes as much time needed to explain it more clearly. Her tests/quizzes are "regents questions" and they arent really that hard if you know the material.

Once she decided that she does't like you , you're absolutely stuck, everything you do is wrong, if you can't understand her class discussion, result in failing, she will fail you even though you've tried your hardest. She teaches in college level, and her test - there's no way to pass it if you don't study. Prepare for suffering day after day, but - you will surivie it, luckily it's only one year.

If you pay attention in class, and quickly review, you should do fine. She tries to teach more than there they say in the book, so you really have to take notes. I got an 80 in her class, and I was so HAPPY, while the next term I got a 95 and hated the teacher cuz I learnted nothing. Take advantage and do something good for yourself in Chu's class

She may be an excellent teacher, but I find her class very difficult. There is little help from her and she's usually strict, espiecially on her exam. Has favorites and likes to humilating those she doesn't like. Homework are hard and too many, tests equals to stressful and suffering. But if you try, she will notice you and not give you a hard time.

Ms. Chu is not a good teacher at all. SHe barely explains things clearly, or if she does she only explains them to the kids she likes. Unfortunately she didnt like me. THen for the final average she doesnt average out whatever grades you ogot, instead she gives you a grade she assumes you deserve. that's not very fair though. SHe liked to waste time during classes but on tests she would always put things from the reading. so if u werent clear on something u were screwed.

If your not in honors and you have her, I feel your pain, your gonna have as much work as the honors and way lower grades.
