Particularly HeartWarming Comments
"Laura's teaching during the Friday workshop was really strong. She really has a talent for teaching."
"She was able to take a question and break it down into its main parts that are understandable and logical to follow."
"She was able to take a question and break it down into its main parts that are understandable and logical to follow."
"Always would go out of her way to help or stay beyond her office hour shift if needed."
"I attended Laura's TA sessions near the end of the quarter. She was very helpful with assignment problems dealing with eigenvalues and proofs. I also benefited greatly from her review session the evening before the exam. Thanks Laura!"
"Good ability to think on the spot and answer questions!"
"Clarity: Whenever I had a question, Laura would always go through every aspect of the question stepbystep. I always felt like when I asked her for help, I thoroughly understood the problem that she helped me with. Rather than just giving me the final answer or working through somewhat vague related theories, she was very methodical, making the material clear to me."
"Extremely nice and helpful"

Favorite Criticism
Q: How can this instructor's teaching be improved?
A: "Sometimes explanations about problems could get a bit focused on proving deep fundamental truths of linear algebra. While insightful, might be helpful for office hours earlier in the week."
