    Romila is one of the best profs I met in UofT. Her lectures gave us a lot of inspiration in both theory and practice. And also she is very caring and supportive of students. The usual schedule and content of assignments and exams is also very reasonable.

    Professor Verma is so sweet - it's clear that she is extremely passionate about her work and sharing her knowledge and experiences with her students and it honestly is refreshing because it makes you excited to learn. She's super understanding and takes extra time to ensure that you understand concepts. Would totally take another class with her.

    Romila is one of the best profs I've ever had at UofT. She is really passionate about water conservationlooking at it from a variety of perspectivesand providing opportunities for students.

    Professor Verma is very passionate about her work and usually makes lectures engaging. The only issue I experienced were through email communication- long wait times and responses were not very helpful.

    Professor Verma was definitely not a terrible professor. That said, she seemed very unconfident in her teaching; often reading off of disorganized slides. She wasn't organized either; promising marks but taking weeks to return things, and not posting guidelines early enough. Yet, in the end it was a bit of work but the marking was EXTREMELY easy.

    assignments were not super long or boring and incorporated a variety of sources (documentary, popular articles, scholarly work, etc). Lectures could be a little boring, but maybe because the topic isn't my focus. Prof. Verma seemed kind and understanding. tried to foster community despite the large class size (wine and cheese night!)

    The most disorganised class I have taken - changes readings (that are LONG) last minute, uploads guidelines just days before exams. 2-hour lectures of constant talking with no breaks. Just watch the recordings... Yet, she came through with the easy grading. This course gave me mad anxiety but in the end, got the A.

    Contrary to the previous review, I found her extremely flexible and understanding. Her lectures can be a little boring, but the content is interesting and her assignments were really easy. It's not uncommon for professors to not release final assignment grades, and she sent an email regarding the delay for final overall marks.

    Worst professor I've met at UofT, she doesn't care about students and never response to emails. Lectures were super boring although the materials were not hard. Took years to mark exams and papers, its been a week since the new semester and we still haven't get feedback for the homework from last semester!!! Avoid at all costs.

    Prof. Verma is no doubt one of the best profs i've had at uoft. She's extremely caring, wants all her students to do well and is very passionate about her work which in turn makes her students very excited and motivated to learn. I have absolutely no complaints and would highly recommend her class.

    I really enjoyed GGR334 with Professor Verma. She is incredibly knowledgeable in her field and always there to help you. I would definitely recommend her. The one thing I would REALLY stress to Prof. Verma is to pls post the guidelines for assignments and tests ahead of time, instead of a couple days before because it really stresses students out.

    Simply reads off her own lecture slides and you cannot gain any additional understanding from them. This is her first year teaching this course and she is very nice, but it really shows that she doesn't know what she's talking about. Textbook is all you need. Quiz questions are often unrelated to the course.

She walked me through the whole process it was really helpful. She focuses on important topics and makes assignment difficulty and length super realistic. I hope to have her again!!

    I really recommend ENV 200 to anyone who is interested in environmental sciences or wants to start learning about the subject. The lectures are really engaging and well explained. Dr. Verma goes into depth in explaining concepts and assignments which was really helpful! A very understanding and caring professor who cares about her students!

    An amazing professor! While this class was very theoretical, she was always linking the theory to relevant real-world examples. She loves to teach and is passionate about helping students succeed. She always found time to discuss assignments, even if that meant giving students her number to call her when she wasn't in her office. She's amazing!!
