"Dr. Miller has been extremely helpful. She is always very energetic and happy to teach which inspires us as students. The same applies to Joseph Cantelmi. I missed the first week and he completely caught me up reteaching the material in a short amount of time."

- S.D., MSHS Summer '21

"Dr. Miller really encouraged us to try out the harder problems. She said that math is supposed to be hard and that whether we are wrong or right, we are learning. I feel like her attitude really helped lift up the whole class. This attitude is really helpful in online learning."

- L.L., MSHS Summer '21

"I loved this class very much. Jayson and Ms. Feurtado were really helpful, smart, and nice. I made many friends too! I was an introvert in the beginning but the Ms. Feurtado and Jayson were very friendly which made me kind of turn into a extrovert. My classmates were really nice and easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend Ms. Feurtado and Jayson. I think that they are the best pair of instructor+TA. I enjoyed this class very much. It helped me in numerous ways. I'm really looking forward to the next time (if there is D:) Everything was so simple after the instructor and TA explained it. I had lots of fun. I would say that these two weeks were the best days of my life."

- S.W., MSHS Summer '21

"Very academically demanding but was very fun."

- J.K., MSHS Summer '21

"Honestly, I have not seen anyone do online learning better than this! I felt that my professor got to know students' strengths and weaknesses to help them better understand concepts. The class moved at a relatively fast speed, and it was always amazing."
