Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted Jan. 28, 2011 Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher ever. I've never disliked a teacher at UCLA as much as I dislike Sun Laoshi enough to write on BruinWalk. I do not think she should be teaching here at UCLA. I can see how some people like her because she can be very energetic and enthusiastic. But Sun Laoshi can be very fake and ignorant. Extremely ignorant. She's too much of a nit-picky grader, she grades her essays really randomly, favors students, and she also seems to discriminate against Taiwanese people.

Quarter Taken: N/A Submitted March 11, 2009 Grade Received: N/A

Sun Laoshi is a bit of a mixed bag. She initially appears genuine and kind, but I began to see her as tubborn, meticulous, sometimes superficial. By the end of my third quarter with her, I wanted to get out of that class. Hearing her voice four days a week, three quarters in a row was one of the most depressing things in my life.

She does an okay job teaching, but there is very little variety from day to day, and her class generally loses interest really fast and nobody talks. And don't be fooled by her apparent sweet demeanor, she is very choosy in who she favors. Too traditional of a Chinese thinker as well, some of her ideology is absolutely ridiculous. Hearing her talk about politics made me want to vomit. Tolerable only to an extent.
