"Professor Seregina is a great instructor! Her lectures were very interesting and her way of teaching the course made it easy to understand concepts that I had seen in other classes that I didn't fully understand. I appreciate our Professor's efforts in holding live zoom lectures as well as recordings of the lectures to accommodate students during this global pandemic. Professor Seregina provided as all the resources needed to pass her course and there were never any difficulty's with holding lectures. I think that out of all the instructors I had these past two quarters, Professor Seregina was the most prepared and flexible instructor during this pandemic. Professor Seregina is a great instructor and it is evident that she is passionate and dedicated to teaching!"
"By far one of the best “professors” i have had if not the best. Complex problems are simplified and she leaves room for students to ask questions. Not only does she prepare us in the classroom but she assists us in preparing for real-life scenarios. In addition, the slides provided are easy to understand and she is extremely flexible in her teaching which makes her a great professor. When a student puts in effort into her homework and attends her lectures then they are rewarded with a higher grade. Simple as that."
"I thoroughly enjoyed taking this class. Thank you for doing your best to accommodating towards students especially during this weird time as of now."
"Professor Seregina has been very helpful throughout this pandemic. Above all else this class was organized efficiently and the material reviewed gave insight to real world problems. Homework was constructed based on the material gone over in lecture so there was never a time the lecture slides didn't have the answers. Even with the method to turn in test made it as stress-free as possible, she allowed us to either turn it in through ilearn but since difficulties arise we were allowed to email our responses. Overall this class was a very insightful class and i would definitely take another class taught by this professor."
"I like how that the professor give detailed examples of the concepts we learned. I also liked how she presents the lessons through power points and post them. I also appreciate how she records the lessons and post them so I can watch them again."
"This teacher was very helpful and responded to questions immediately. Strongly recommend taking her class."
"Great lectures. some really good information i have learned."
"Made the course understandable through her TA sessions and was always available to take up doubts. Thank you so much Kate."
"Kate is doing a very good job as a TA. There is very little I can say for her to improve."
"A really good teacher. She always tried to cover more material than just solving homeworks. She was comprehensive and helpful with several notes apart to the ones coveren in class."
"Great TA. Was very helpful with any questions I had and was also very helpful with the additional study session."
"Ms. Kate makes the discussion a comfortable learning environment meaning the class itself is very straightforward and she goes directly into the material. This is all in a good way meaning she makes use of the time and also breaks down the material efficiently. Ms. Kate is very knowledgeable and makes the content easier to understand further. In addition, she also helps us prepare for midterm and quizzes. Very fun class!"
"She is clearly instructor. Patient and careful."
"Really helpful and clarified things that I was still not sure about in the class. Thanks to her I was able to lift my score in the second midterm."
"As a TA, she is very good and would like to have her in future courses."
"Learned most of the stuff in discussion and she helped clarify lots of the material."
"Ekaterina was an excellent TA! She clearly explained the material that we were going over in class. She was always willing to answer student's questions. I also like how she responded to our emails and also offered help over the emails! I know that she truly cared for the students and she wanted all of us to do well in the Statistics class. I would definitely love to have her TA again for a future Economics class!"
"She is a very nice professor. She taught the class very patiently. Giving us very clear study guide before the exam. She considers everyone's feeling, making sure everyone understand what she says before she moves on, And she did short review on each lecture to help students remind what she taught before."
"Great work, by far one of the best professors teaching economics. Hopefully I can take her in the future because of her method of teaching. It was clear to the point and concise. She made sure that everyone understood the material and did the steps fully and clearly. \I appreciate the time and effort you put into the class."
"This course was wonderful. Professor Kate did an excellent job introducing and explaining concepts, and showed us students how to learn from basics and implement them into more complex equations as the course carried on. Not only that, but she is also able to make students understand these concepts in 5 weeks! The handouts provided aided a lot in learning the material as well as preparing for exams. All the information in lecture was comprehensive and kept interesting. Professor Kate is definitely a must-have Professor for Econ105A."
"Excellent teaching 10/10 would recommend!"
"Very helpful. The notes and lectures were informative and indicative of what would be on the exams."
"I deeply appreciate your help and effort during the course. Your session and office hours, even emails with proofs were all very helpful. I could always feel that you are doing your best and well prepared. I was lucky to have you as a TA. Thank you again. You are a really kind and hard working TA!"
"I cannot understand the courses without Kate's help. She is the best!"
"Ekaterina, You are wonderful! Please please please continue to be as great as you are. If there is any request It would be for you not to stop and continue doing what you are doing. To be more specific, I really like the way you go over the Handouts; not only you are telling us what to do but you are explaining concepts and giving useful examples. I like the examples and the structure you follow. I like how you emphasize in what is important to focus on. You have made a difference this quarter with your interest, dedication, and articulated teaching. You are a true TA! I feel that you will be a great professor in the future and I feel happy for the future student that will get to be guided by you. Thank you!"
"Ekaterina Seregina is the definition of a terrific teaching assistant. She makes the material make sense, and I got to know her very well this past quarter. Economics 105A can be confusing somethings, but she provides strategies of how to solve each problem. I frequently went to her office hours instead of the professor’s office hours because of my availability. I hope that I will be one of her students again, and I am sad that she is not going to my teaching assistant next quarter."
"Ekaterina is by far my best and most helpful discussion section T.A I have ever had. She was extremely clear in class and took the initiative to help us in anything we needed, even just a simple clarification. I think she was very straightforward and wanted to help us as much as she could and I appreciate that so much. She was also very fair and throughly explained everything. She was truly amazing."
"Miss. Kate is professional in delivering class materials. Her command of English is appropriate and I do not have a problem with it. Prepares me for upcoming exams and suggest problems I can work on to practice/improve on. Very approachable and has a calm demeanor. Clarifies my doubt clearly and efficiently, and she is a fair grader."
"VShe has honestly been one of the most helpful teaching assistants in the history of the economics department. She explains and teaches the material in the most simple ways for students to grasp the information. She also doesn't hesitate to reexplain material that students do not understand. She is also sympathetic to slower students and does not get annoyed when they have trouble. Her instructions are clear and succinct. I truly laud her for her great work."
"Ekaterina is an amazing TA. She makes the economic functions easy to understand."

"Ekaterina was amazing. You could see that she clearly understood the material and wanted her students to excel in macroeconomics ,perhaps that is why we all did so well on the exams. Unlike others, I saw her effort to translate all her thoughts to English before speaking as an opportunity to learn that there are no limits to what we can accomplish, if we just adapt to our environment"

"This discussion class was very helpful in terms of preparing students for upcoming quizzes and tests. Taking notes in this class is very much encouraged as it helped me further with my understanding of the economic concepts.
