Comment:
Taiani is a smart person but terrible professor. She rushes through material and expects you to know everything as soon as she writes it on board. She moves quickly in class and gets an attitude or rolls her eyes if you don't understand. Her grading policy is confusing and subjective so your grade may suffer if she doesn't like you. AVOID.

Comment:
Taiani is a very anxious and rushed professor. Don't bother asking any questions because she'll belittle you for not knowing the answer and go on about how easy this is. You won't be able to keep up with the material as her teaching is useless, so you'll resort to spending numerous hours outside of class along with extra tutoring every week.

Comment:
You can tell Taiani is very passionate about math and has been teaching a long time. However, due to her experience, she sees everything as easy and goes through problems very quickly. She looks down upon those who do not understand the material as fast as her, and will openly yell at you in class if you ask a question that seems dumb to her.

Comment:
Professor Taiani was horrible. Shes incredibly rude to students who ask a question, will yell at you and call you dumb if you dont understand what she says, and at the end of the day, doesnt know how to explain the problems well. Her tests are ridiculous and dont correlate with her practice problems in class. STEER CLEAR OF HER!!!

Dr. Taiani is not the easiest professor, but she is fair, and caring. If you dont' find her helpful, you probably didn't study.

Comment:
Taiani is the type of professor that will do one problem incredibly fast and expect you to get the whole chapter. She is incredibly condescending if you admit that you dont understand the material. Her exams are difficult, please study as much as you can. I advise you to NOT take her if you struggle with math in general. Good luck.

Comment:
So i took her for a few classes. She is fair I just didnt work well with her style of teaching. Shes very much about theory. She likes going over every theory and doesnt do as much examples. Thats why I think her classes were so hard for me. Kinda wish I would have gone to Pleasantville. I really tried hard in her class but I never did that well

She makes you work for your grade and does not give any handouts, but she only does this because she wants students to fully understand the material and actually learn, unlike most Pace classes. I did very bad on my first exam and she was very fair with me and gave me a chance to still pass the class as long as I showed her improvement by the final

Comment:
She made us feel like her grading policies were ok during the beginning of the semester but in reality its just a confusion. She's rude and can get nasty when you ask for help. Her lectures are confusing and she often gets off topic and starts saying random useless things. If you're a math major, you're stuck with her for many classes, sorry.

She does not know how to deal with complaints. She will go crazy even with only one little complaint. She also has an attitude problem.
