I had Fu for English 5/6 in my junior year of high school and I have never encountered a better English teacher since. Her class is challenging, with heavy reading and writing, but she's a fair grader. I would not have been acing my college papers if she had not taught me how to "write." Fu devotes a considerable amount of time in grading her essays, giving helpful feedback and comments. Go ask her for help; she genuinely cares for all her students.

Fu is the worst teacher you can possibly have. Everyday I leave her class with a new assignment that I don't know how to do since she doesn't clearly explain everything. The way she grades everything is very strict; it is tough to keep an A in her class. In her honors class, she makes you read two books at once. All of her students are constantly stressing out. She needs to be more considerate about the amount of homework she gives since we have other more important things going on in our lives.

Ms fun is not the type of teacher that will help you with your grade. On fact, she's the oopposite. There is no second chances, no exceptions. We got a long term sub, and with that sub, my grade started going up. With ms fun, my grade goes down. She is a part of the top two worst English teachers along with ms.Marvin. she once told the class that you don't get tour grade up in her class. Way too stressful

All i have to say is basically everyone in my honors class hated her. She gave alot of homework that was just alot of tedious work. She also has her own perspective and if you don't think the same way she'll give your work a lower grade. She expects you to participate in class very frequently and if you do not it lowers your grade. I honestly didn't learn much in her class, i just did the work and barely recieved a B.

Ms. Fu is a cool person to talk to if she likes you. She is somewhat of a cool person with an interesting humor if your her ex-student. She is very hard, especially to the regular class. I have never seen so many people fail when i was in her class o.o Her regular class is basically an honors class. The test she even gives you says "English 5/6 Honors" on it. She grades harsh. She even grades how well you annotate. Participation in her class is stupid. So hard to earn participation points.

Had her for Honors. She's only intimidating if you don't know your material well. She gave out a lot of work, and expects you to talk in class. I did end up learning A LOT in the end, though.
