Student Reviews of Professor Looije:

“She is a great teacher and one who explains very well. Must attend classes to fully understand the course.”

“She's a great teacher. At one point I thought I was about to fail her class but I finished the entire course with 100 which I'm still shocked about. She uses text book in every class. She's always prepared with agendas and allows you to work and understand everything. She's very respectful, always on time and I definitely 100% recommend her.”

“Attend class and you will get an 80+ with minimal effort. She explains everything clearly and let's you practice in class as she's teaching. Provides a clear outline each week on what will be taught, as well as what you're expected to know for each test.”
