Dr. Furman is very smart, but her classes are hard and I found her teaching to be confusing. I failed a couple of her tests pretty badly before switching tracks. She is intimidating, but is surprisingly nice once you truly get to know her. Perhaps she is an excellent teacher for others, but her teaching style and my learning style were always incompatible and my grades suffered. I never knew what was going on in her class, and to this day, I'm still unable to remember anything from that class.

Dr.Furman is an incredibly knowledgeable teacher who leads a very interesting class. While the class is difficult it does prepare a student for harder chemistry and physics classes later in high school. That having had been said the one problem with her class is that she makes things very hard to understand and I tend to rely on crash course.

Dr. Furman is perhaps the best teacher in the whole school. Every once in a while she'll tell a joke is class and it's hilarious.

Dr. Furman is a wonderful teacher and utterly brilliant. Unfortunately for me, I was accidentally placed in Honors bio and did abysmally despite this. Her tests are rediculously difficult, but she's a sweet and lovely person.

I love her-- she is a great teacher and I learned so much. As her tests are not the easiest, she makes her students work very hard.

Mindy is a great teacher - I got in the high 700s on the SAT II with her help. Impossible tests/quizzes, and lots of assignments, but it's worth it
