Great prof, but teaches all content in class - the slides are useless if you don't attend lectures. The course CS234 is very abstract, so be prepared for lots of theory of programming.

Comment:
Naomi explains material very clearly. Her assignments were very helpful, it really motivated use to understand the material without taking too much time. Her exams were fair, as it is mostly conceptual, so it is not likely to make silly mistakes, but you really need to understand the material to do very well.

Naomi is great teacher who teaches stuff very clearly and although I did not study any computer science in high school, I still got the highest mark in my whole term.

Comment:
While she does well at teaching the material, she reads the course notes verbatim. Going to class can be helpful but it's nothing you can't teach yourself anyway. She also goes to through the material very slow which can make the lectures extremely boring.

Comment:
Prof. Nishimura is incredibly considerate. She makes sure that students can see the board from every seat. She also pauses after every slide to answer questions. She goes over the material slowly enough so that everyone understands but not too slowly as to irritate the quick learners. Overall she's an awesome prof!

Great prof, she really cares about your understanding of the course. Very clear and helpful. The material is relatively easy compared to other CS courses, however, it's not very applicable :P

I'll always remember the class when she explained the Pumping Lemma... "We want to pump the tree" and "We want the tree to be fully bushy"... First X-rated CS course at Waterloo
