my day at work started fine until one of my co worker aprroached and told me that i was doing the job incorrectly. I told her that, it is what in the processs, but she said,"no, you have to do it this way". I usually ignore her everytime she meddles in my work, but inside i was seething with anger.She always do this to my other co workers too and many times, she got pulled by our supervisor but still she never learns.

Yes, just ignore her. Just do what you've started and prove to her that your are on the right track. If she will not stop bothering you, tell her personally to concentrate to her work instead of meddling others.

Show her the good results you have made in you own method and tell her that everyone has different to complete the work and it is not matter how you do but how well you do. After all,no one is a better judge of your success than you.If she still meddle you,try to have a talk with your manager together with other co-workers.

by experience my advice its just ignore here, and say ok to what ever she says, knowing that you are doing your own thing , confident about your ability in what ever you doing and you'll be fine.
