She was very interested in the questions we had, encouraging and gave really good and constrictive feedback. She was exactly the instructor that I needed to keep me motivated and comfortable to be involved in class discussions.
Loved Vidya's substance lecture. She made it so easy to get started. Also appreciated the MASH and topology lectures as well.
Because of Vidya's feedback, I knew where I had to focus. I learned some new techniques in modeling and unwrapping, which also will helped me beyond this course.
Vidya was awesome at teaching us about every aspect. She always made an effort to be motivating and helping us.
