In all honesty, she is bit of a mixed bag. On one hand, she can be caring and supportive by only wanting the best for her students. On the contrary, she can be impulsive and demanding, and even critical of her students at times. But, overall she is dedicated teacher who works tirelessly to support her students and bring out the best in them.
Doesn't encourage her students unless they are doing well and raises her voice over every little occasion. She also picks clear favourites and focuses more on them and mostly ignores everyone else.
Before getting into Mrs Bourne's maths class in year 10, I was a C (55-65%) student. Passing everything, but not doing well, and usually struggling. Mrs Bourne helped me get my scores up into the 90s and helped me in doing Spec. and Methods. She does seem to give a nearly overwhelming amount of work at first, but once you get used to the homework load and effectively use her techniques, you see how easy she makes maths that seems out of your reach at first.
100% would recommend.
Very good teacher, has great knowledge and shares it with the class. Has a unique way of teaching that helps all students to excel and become good mathematicians.
She is a very very very serious teacher, very good at teaching, but sometimes it's boring, she should make more jokes.
Great teacher! Really helpful and extremely committed.
The best Math teacher their is in thehool, in her class we play by her way's and her rule's no wonder why students always suceed in her class. NICE!
Truly one of the smartest yet kindest teachers who definately treats all her students as her own children.
The number one maths teacher to have come to Mazenod college. Like a mother to me and is the nicest lady. Not only a good teacher but looks after her students.
very nice lady.. treats her students just like her own children.. willingness is second to none.. pleasure to have been taught by her!
Easily one of the best & nicest teachers I have experienced. Extremely dedicated!
great maths teacher made me love doing maths, so dedicated
What can I say ? Bourne is the eternal mother whose dedication, caring and compassion are rarely rivaled by most. Just make sure you don't get on the wrong side of her and everything will be fine.
This teacher is a champ. If anyone says anything bad it's only because you suck wang!
Never had a nicer teacher, always willing to lend a hand.. my mentor :-)
