Tufts University: Kim Ruane - Mathematics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Kim Ruane | MATH022 - Discrete Math| Mathematics2006-03-29

Professor Ruane is by far the best math professor I have ever had. She is funny and engaging in class, and always has very clear explainations. Normally a math class that lasted more than an hour would be a complete bore, but she actually makes it interesting. Whenever she can tell we're getting bored, she's go off on some funny tanget about her son or american idol or something, and go right back into the lecture a minute later after our brains have had time to relax a little. She makes herself available outside of class whenever you need extra help. I would definitely recommend her as a professor, as you will not find any other teacher more concerned with their students progress and understanding.

As I am not a math major, I do find this class to be a bit tricky. The homework generally takes 2 hours to complete, but she is very flexible with the syllabus, so if she does not get to finish covering a topic, you won't have to do the homework for it. There is also generally a special problem assigned every week which is harder than the rest, but she is very helpful with them if you are having trouble doing one.
