I absolutely adore Ms. Ling! She always patiently answered my questions and ensured that I understood the concept/problem entirely. Don't be afraid to ask her any questions because she'll always answer them honestly. She goes pretty fast when lecturing, but honestly, you get used to it. Her notes are also ridiculously helpful, so I'd recommend you take really good notes! She was such an amazing teacher, and I'm so glad to have had her the year before she retired. 5 for all!!

Would never take her class ever again. She's honestly really confusing and she's just an awful person to be near. Pro Tip, Just study the material yourself and do her homework.

One of the best teachers I had at keppel. Her quizzes and tests are extremely easy IMO if you just listen in class and do homework. ALL of the material on her quizzes and tests will be from class or homework, so make sure you understand everything covered in them. Ms Ling also prepares you extremely well for the AP. If you pay attention in class, and make an effort to try to understand what you missed, you will have no problem getting an A.

Had Ms. Ling for AP Calc AB in junior year. got A/B (89%! nooo) & 5 on AP exam.
Good points
lectures extremely clearly and logically
won't put anything on her test that she hasn't taught
hw load is reasonable
stays afterschool to help/tutor
genuinely cares about students' education
"Bad" point
imo, 4 hour/week requirement for study group is a little unnecessary, but I think it's meant to replace private tutoring
She revamped my approach to math & learning. Would retake her class 100%

Ms.Ling is the teacher that can prepare you for the ap exam. After so many practice exams before the ap exam, it is almost impossible not to get a 5. Go Ms.Ling!

She's probably the best teacher you can find in Keppel. Passionate about teaching, puts in a great amount of time to her students. She is in early before school, lunch, and after school for you to come for tutoring. She never teaches directly from the book, she has her own thing planned out. Homework load is manageable. Test is hard, but reasonable. If you do all your hw, study, and go to tutoring, I see no reason for you to get anything below a C.

Ms. Ling is a GREAT teacher! Honestly, she's one of the best teachers at Keppel. If you're thinking about taking AP Calc AB, just take it. Granted, Calculus is not easy. It is more abstract than Algebra or Trigonometry, but still interesting. Ms. Ling will do an amazing job explaining the concepts to you and the projects in her class are actually quite fun! Look forward to bonding with your group and learning a lot about Calculus. The class isn't easy, but it's worth the challenge.

She is a very nice person and enjoys joking around such as "Me, lazy." and although her class is hard, she really helps such as curving and tries her best to teach.

She has got to be one of the best teachers out there. She is passionate about teaching and is one of the few who actually cares about her students. She tries to make math fun and in some ways, it works :) Calculus is hard itself, but I definitely don't regret taking her class ^__^ She gives off an intimidating impression, but she's simply great. She's a very sweet woman. 5 ON AP!

If you have the determination to get a 5 on the AP, then she will teach you everything you know to get it. Grades are not important, so when she says don't think about it - don't.
