Examples of Student Comments:

"Hillary is phenomenal. One of the best grad students I've ever worked with. She is beyond intelligent, clearly cares about student development, is thoughtful in her feedback, and is very willing to help. She answered all of my emails, provided great feedback, and even helped connect me with others when she couldn't answer my questions. She is GREAT!"

"The course assistant / TA was really outstanding: the review sessions were excellent, she was great at explaining things, she was generous with her office hours, and was really responsive and helpful."

"The teaching fellow, Ms. Hillary Stein, has been also very helpful throughout the course. She was very clear in delivering her messages during review sections. More importantly, she was very approachable and friendly, which is of good quality as a teaching fellow."

"Hillary has been an amazing resource for my thesis. She has gone above and beyond to help me with my project. When I was really struggling she was so helpful and I would not have survived this semester without her help. She responds to emails in a timely manner both on weekdays and the weekend. She doesn't belittle you if you have a dumb question and is willing to take the time to walk you through small issues as well as the high–level logistical planning of the thesis. Hillary is by far the best economics teacher I've had/met at Harvard and perhaps the best teacher I've ever had. I cannot thank her enough for helping me through the rougher patches of my thesis."

"Best TF that I have ever had. She is incredibly energetic and caring, while possessing a strong command of economics."

"Hillary is exceptional. This is the type of model teacher that you want. She is always available for help, and she is willing to move heaven and earth to make sure that you understand the material."

"Hillary is amazing! Best TF I have had. She genuinely loves the material and wants you to actually learn. She is very accessible and will be there for you every step."

"Hillary is my hands down favorite person in the economics department. She gives the best lectures, concise feedback, and optimal strategy for completing theses. She is a once–in–a–lifetime type of TF."
