“Dr. Tiff is undeniably dedicated to enabling her students to succeed. She accommodates numerous learning styles, grades fairly, and offers detailed feedback so we know how to improve. Everything we’re tested on is relevant, and although her assessments and projects are challenging, we are always well-prepared and well-supported. Despite the endless list of things she has to do, she makes each one of us feel valued.”
