EXCELLENT TEACHER. I am very satisfied with this class and how she taught it. Highly recommend her for Math 33B (I also heard she's consistently great with other classes she teaches). The class was really enjoyable, the balance between lectures and her stories about Italy. Tests are straightforward with one or 2 hard questions (theory based). Those questions are hard but fair :D
10/10 would take again.
I took her Diffeq class in summer 2013. It was awesome.
I'm not sure if she was just an extremely easy teacher or if she was just extremely effective.
The content on the midterms were mostly computational (solve the diffeq shown blah blah blah), but there were a couple of questions here and there that were theoretical, but if you knew the theorems you could get.
I got an A- in the class without ever going to discussion (they were too early in the morning). For reference, I got a B in 33A, and a C in math 61, so I'm not particularly a math prodigy, nor am I tremendously studious. Honestly she is such a good lecturer that it can compensate for a little bit of procrastination and stuff.
I think she only teaches in the summer since she's a visiting professor from italy. She always breaks from lecture to tell us a random tangent about how the US is different from italy. That always made it fun. She does have an accent, but unless you're a foreign student who has trouble with english, you'll have no problems understanding her.
I never went to her office hours, but I imagine they were good.

Thank you for the report!
