After having Petrie for Year 11 Methods, I can confidently say she is by far the worst methods teacher. She skimmed through every chapter teaching next to nothing and made the tests considerably hard. She taught only the very basic concepts and rarely exposed us to harder application problems. My whole class averaged 50% no joke. I pray every day these holidays that I don't have her for Year 12 Methods because from what I heard no-one in her class got above 40 last year in Methods. AT MHS!!

Great story teller. You'll learn more about your previous form teacher from her than the person himself/herself. A little generic in the teaching area, just has notes and examples from textbook. However, if you actually pay attention and ask her if you don't know something, she is more than willing to help.

She was a useless teacher. She is the reason why so many MHS kids have tutors. Cannot teach even if her life depended on it. All she does is copy her old, pre-made notes onto the board and tells us to copy it down. Then she goes on her iPad and shops on eBay for the entire lesson. Can't believe she is still teaching.

Quite an underrated teacher I reckon. I think she does a pretty good job at teaching the basic concepts of every maths topic, but she could put more effort into teaching us some harder application problems and her class tests involve exposure to different types of questions. Nevertheless, she's got a really cool personality and it's really easy to get along with her. Likes to divert away from maths to talk about the Global Financial Crisis, her shoes and past experiences. She's awesome!

Awesome teacher. Really becomes your friend during the year, able to crack jokes with and tease her. Fairly dedicated to teaching the class, but doesn't overdrive them.
