Student Testimonals

Professor Pierz has been one of the best instructors I've had at CUNY. She was always willing to help and always made herself available. Her
feedback was always prompt and extremely detailed.

Amanda is very supportive of students completing fieldwork - easily available to solve problems via office hours or email, and flexible in aligning
course expectations with preceptor expectations.


Professor Pierz is extremely kind and approachable, which makes you comfortable asking her questions. You can tell that she wants students to do well, which makes an impact on students' motivation to engage with the course and exceed.

Feedback from Faculty Observations

“The surprise of the night was how well the student-led Q&A session served to create more sharing and discussion among several students. I was pleased to see how well a shared atmosphere of learning was created. I don’t think that is easy to do in a hybrid class. I learned a lot from Amanda and the students."
