Really enjoyed her classes. She thought us to think independently and to understand the material, not perform calculations by rote. She is what a teacher should be.
I too had her as a teacher in the 80s - extremely poor in my estimation, only taught to the naturally logical mathematical in the class, rude, non-engaging,disorganised and alwaysmelt like an ashtray
Inspired a lifelong interest in mathematics. Technically sound with an ability to communicate Mathematically ideas simply. Thought students to think for themselves instead of spoon feeding.
this woman is a legend!! indimidating for 4th year and then in leaving cert she sound out. Really encouraging and tells it like it is
Legend! Intimidating, yes, but genius. Really knows her stuff. Disorganised and as quirky as they come. Brilliant and always interesting, though she pretends she doesn't care.
One of the best teachers i ever had! I thought i was hopeless at maths until I was put in her class for LC. She was a bit unorganised but had a real gift for explaining basic concepts. I studied physics at university and have never come across anybody who has such clarity in basic explanations
great physics teacher but doesn't really stick to the book so i'm always confused when i go home! not so good at teaching maths, she sort of expects us to know everything already. always late for class but doesn't waste time when she's there
Her writing is impossible to read! It's just a letter followed by squiggles! In physics.. she's good at explaining stuff but I would prefer if she read the book more because I don't know what chapters we have done but I'm probably supposed to read myself... Her sarcasm puts me off a bit and it seems like she expects us to know everything from the JC. I think she could explain a bit more when it comes to doing questions, I haven't a clue how to do them and I feel left behind.
this women used to scare the life of me-told me id work in mcdonalds 4 d rest of my life.
would appreciate if she would open the book&read now&again.presumes we know a lot...from junior cert.a sarcastic sense of humour sometimes guns u dowm4askin a Q
Shes definely a legend. Shes as quirky as they come but a class teacher. Shes an total genius. We had the best craic in her physics class. Shes scary though
well.....to say miss duffy is a legend would not be a lie!! Love this woman had her for physics for LC 03. very intelligent and has great time for her students
brill teacher but have 2 do ur own work bhind the scenes.extremely helpful towards exams.came in durin break between end of school+exams 2 help with wat she cud
Mathematical genius but sadly I am NOT. I usually struggle to understand her and her subject.Can be intimidating/impatient with less than brilliant students.
She's a extremely intelligent very good teacher. It seems, however, that she has no time for the not-so-smart. She helps you build character though!!
She's a brilliant teacher, extremely intellegent and can be very helpful
This woman is the legend! listen to her advise she knows what shes talkin about! just dont try act the mick in her class!
LEGEND IN HER OWN RITE,DEAD FUNNY!!!N SHES CLASS AT MATHS WISH I HAD HER BRAIN 4 IT!!!
very intelligent but if you get lost in class forget about it! but very nice person
Very good teacher. but if you are weak or timid u wont survive in her class.
a genius-mite go a bit fast but knows exactly wat shes doin: we're finished the course since nov!!!
Teaching is a bit haphazard but she got me the desired results all the same!
seems to be sound the only problem is when ever you sit near the front of class it always seem to rain on top of you wonder why!
really sound teacher,easy to get on with.a bit fast and unclear when it comes to the course
ah shes harmless, shes can be really funny she just doesnt take any cr*p from anyone which makes people think shes scary
Class teacher, easy to get along with. honest andtreats students with respect
Very intimidating. Disorganised, found her classes hard to follow.
Very scary. And intimadating. But she is an excellent and funny teacher with extensive knowledge of her subjects - Physics, Maths etc
