Comments from Students

Diana was one of the best and most helpful GSIs that I have had at U of M.” (Introduction to Comparative Politics, Fall 2011)

“Diana is a wonderful GSI. This was an extremely tough course and her detailed easy-to-understand explanations helped me so much! It was obvious that she prepared before teaching every course was showed her dedication to the course and it was greatly appreciated.” (Arab-Israeli Conflict, Winter 2012)

“Diana was a great teacher. She helped to point out the important parts of the lecture so that we knew the most important parts and took time out to help students. She would make a great addition to any university should she choose to follow the academic path.” (Arab-Israeli Conflict, Winter 2012)

Excellent. Discussion was incredibly useful in this class to make sense of lecture. Sometimes there was a lot of dense information in the readings and lecture, Diana did a great job of organizing and presenting it in a way that made sense.” (Arab-Israeli Conflict, Winter 2012)

“Diana was excellent. Without her help, I probably would have done terribly in this class…She was really helpful, incredibly knowledgable, and more than willing to meet outside of class to help students. Easily the best GSI I’ve had here (I’m an upperclassman), and I’m disappointed that I won’t be here when she becomes a professor because I would love to take a class with her as the professor.” (Arab-Israeli Conflict, Winter 2012)

“Diana was an excellent GSI. She is extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter…Her discussion was very informative and stimulating for students. She broke down the subject matter very well and helped students truly understand it. She is going to be a spectacular professor someday!” (Arab-Israeli Conflict, Winter 2012)

“Diana is fantastic, one of my favorite GSIs during undergrad.” (Latin American Politics, Winter 2014)

“Diana did a great job covering the material and was VERY available to speak with me outside the class about course concerns and grades. I truly appreciated her help!” (Political Economy of Long-Run Development, Fall 2015)

“Instruction of the discussion section was flawless.” (Political Economy of Long-Run Development, Fall 2015)

Diana is a fantastic GSI who clearly has a lot of experience with the history and economies of the countries we discussed as case studies.” (Political Economy of Long-Run Development, Fall 2015)

 “Di, you’re great, keep up the great work.” (Political Economy of Long-Run Development, Fall 2015)
