She's the best English teacher I ever had! She helps with essays and assignments during her office hours, she's understanding meaning that if you have a problem she'll try and help you and give you extensions on your assignments. There are a lot of readings like 1 every two weeks or so but they're short and interesting! She is very passionate and simply good at what she does although the average is usually high and so is the standard deviation. It's all worth it though! TAKE HER IF YOU CAN!!!!!

She is my favourity English teacher to date. She's always willing to help you understand and review your essay draft before hand. Classes are super interesting and you never get bored. You also learn a lot about Ireland which is a plus. take her class if you can you won't regret it .

Very great teacher! Very good class, you'll learn a lot about Irish history. Just do the readings and go to class and you'll get an amazing grade. However, if you're not found of group work, I do not recommand this teacher as it's pretty much guaranteed she'll make you work with the person sitting beside you at least once a class.

Absolutely lovely having her as a teacher. She is by far the best English teacher I've had so far, and she's very knowledgeable and is able to construct a curriculum that allows students to not only learn quite a bit on Ireland's history, but in a very engaging way. I implore you to not miss the opportunity to take her course (Irish literature). You'll be making a good decision, I promise.

I went in being worried I was going to have to learn about Ireland but from the beginning I really enjoyed this class and I learned a lot. She is always there to help you, she is very caring for her students and if she see's that you're putting in effort, she will love you and you will do well. The multiple choice quizzes are easy, the short answer questions are a bit detailed and she is not the easiest essay marker but there are a lot of opportunities to boost your grade. LOVED HER!

She is soo far the best english teacher. I had her for THEMES IN CONTEMPORARY IRISH LITERATURE. She is really into her classes which makes her classes really interesting. Nice sense of humour. You can be absent and she would understand and come help you out if you ask for help. She gives quizzes for every reading and it's nice because it boosts your grade up like crazy. 3 essays, 8 quizzes. Really easy to get over 85%. Take her, she is amazing. Really sweet.

She's definitely really passionate about Ireland and very nice as an individual. However I found her often passive aggressive towards some students and wouldn't really be accepting towards opinions different from her own. I found her to be a hard marker at times, in the sense that she was really picky about she wanted. She's definitely not the worst english teacher out there, but she did test my patience at times when the semester was coming to an end. She has a cool accent though!

Absolutely adored this teacher! She has a fantastic personality and all the plays and texts we read in class were fascinating. She's very helpful and understanding. I took her Irish Themes class and loved it, I learned so much. She's really passionate about the subject, and class discussions were always entertaining. I would take her again if I could! Do the readings, study for the quizzes, and you'll surely do great.

I had her for Contemporary American Drama and liked it. Most of the plays were interesting and the more boring ones got better when we talked about them. She tries to get everyone into it and knows how to manage the class. One guy was arrogant and kind of a racist and she handled him right I thought. I would take her again if I could.

I found her irritating. She would make a better high school teacher. Good for those who struggle because she babies her students. Strict no cellphone policy, everything is done in groups, makes you split up with your partner if you talk about things other than the material, always eavesdrops on conversations. She assigns books about racial issues but is excessive in her political correctness, which makes it difficult for students to express their opinions. I was very annoyed at her by the end.

The best english teacher, she is so into the course material. Class is so easy going and not at all stressful. She explains everything and is a very intelligent teacher. The homework is just to read the short story and come to class. In class we just discus the story. The is one quiz after each new reading which is super duper easy, its lie free marks. THERE IS NO ORAL PRESENTATION! i repeat no oral presentation!!! The essay for this class is 750 words. just take her u will pass! guaranteed

She is definitely the best teacher Dawson College has to offer. She is so smart and interesting. Her classes are never boring. She's a very fair grader, and tests you on many different aspects. Her quizzes can easily be aced, you just need to come prepared. If your a serious student you can do very well with her. She is extremely helpful in her office hours and is always prepared to schedule with her students to help them improve their essays and english in general. Best teacher :)
