Almost impossible to do well in this class. If you have not done your assignment from her point of view it is automatically incorrect and a failure. Shows a lot of favouritism and is extremely rude. Classes involve her talking for the full duration of the class and nothing more. Every class you will have a quiz and an overload of readings to do as if this were the only class you had. Avoid taking this teacher unless there aren't any others available.
Took her for 103 Crime & Prejudice course, if you put in effort you will do just fine. She assigns a lot of readings so you have to do them because there's a quiz each class and at the end of the semester she doesn't remove the lowest quiz so if you don't show up you mark will be deducted by a couple of percentages. She's very easy with essays, take her advice in what she tells you to write and go to her office hours with a rough draft, she will literally correct it for you & give you feedback
SHE IS THE WORST ENGLISH TEACHER, DO NOT TAKE HER UNLESS YOU WANT TO FAIL!! I worked so hard throughout the semester and even went to a lot of her office hours and she saw how much work I put in and in the end failed me with a 59... AVOID HER she should be thrown out of the school. If she doesnt like you, youll fail, its simple.
I wouldn't recommend her if you do not like to read or have the time to read. There is a quiz every class so if you don't read you are going to fail. Although, if you do the readings, her quizzes are quite easy. If she doesn't like you, you probably won't do very well in her class. She is somewhat helpful if you go see her during her office hours. Lastly, if you don't agree with her opinion or have the same views as her on a topic, good luck.
Overall very good teacher. However, she does have mood swings and gets mad sometimes. Gives a lot of readings (in her Crime and Prejudice class) and all of the quizzes and analysis questions (there's a lot of them) are on those readings. She lets you do the essays at home but helps a lot when you ask her (she literally corrects your complete essay and gives you comments when you go to her office before the deadline). Classes can get very boring but overall, I learned new interesting things
If you like to read (about 5 - 10 chapters/week) take her. Otherwise if you don't like to read you will have to read because all her marks come from reading questions (quiz every class with reading questions and 2 essays worth about 60% each). Only good thing is that it will probably make you a better reader and make you like to read a little more but in general too much reading and boring long classes with book analysis.
do not take her, she is stuck on this book about a autistic kid and her final essay on the book is composed of a serious topic for a really not important novel, you need to think out of the box maybe even in a inhuman way to try understanding what she wants from this, even if you think you did well on the tests or finals, believe me its nothing close to a good mark, I think the highest mark she gave a kid was a 80 and that's because his sibling was in university and did the work for him!
take her if theres no other options for you. she has mood swings but shes very helpful in her office.
Very difficult class, boring Sherlock Holmes stories that she is so passionate about, and very moody teacher. I was previously studying English and worked as a substitute English teacher in Asia, but somehow managed to fail this class. If you do not follow her precise words and write an essay full of dribble that she wants to see, you will fail. Would avoid this teacher at all costs.
I took her for english 2 and she is really a fun teacher, she gives easy quizzes the essays are assignments and she gives bonus points if you read in class and gives tons of good ideas for the essays !i definitely recommend her.
Super chill lady!! she's sooo funny- she has a sacastic sense of humour- if someone asks stupid question just watch her facial expressions its HILARIOUS.. i wanna be her best friend.. Really smart woman she won;t give u the answer to the question but she encourages class discussions which lead to understanding. I didnt notice anyone getting on her bad side but I defs wouldnt mess with her
Very helpful and fun teacher!! Cancelled many classes and gives a ton of extra credits! Easy course and easy tests, just make sure to have done the small readings! Not strict and very flexible with extensions!!
LOVED that teacher & the way she teaches !! She made me understand poetry & how to analyze a text correctly, she was always there to help students ( very understanding ) got 77 in her class, but i loved her class
Poetry for me is hard and because of her explaination i was able to get 80 on an essay on a poem. The rest of her course is pretty easy if you listen and pay attention in class. you read a lot of shor
Ok, this class is very easy BUT watch out, sometimes this teacher just has her bad days, my advice stay away when she's in a bad mood.
Significant stages is a hard course! Creativity is a must! A lot of reading is required! Cool teacher, gives many extentions!
the class is VERY easy if you read all the stories. I had her for significant stages, her quizzes are worth A LOT (35%). But if you read the story before the quizz you can't get less then 8/10.
Great teacher,but can be rude at times. But that is only because students today have no respect for their teachers. She is a great teacher and her class is easy if you do all the readings and quizzes
I rly liked this teacher , she was extremetely helpful ! and please dont say she is a hard marker and gives too much hw..PLEASE..you are in school guys ! DUH!
I really really like this teacher.. I had english with her for 2 semesters and wish I could take her again! Really understanding with extensions, and explains exactly what she wants in her essays.
very nice teacher ,, very intelligent gives a lot of work but has interesting classes be prepared for the work but shes an amazing teacher!!!
very nice teacher but gives A PILE OF HMWORK. as if we don't have anything else to do but english. at least the hmwrk she gives are sometime easy. if ur a lazy person, dont take her. take her if u are
She is the kind that's intimidating but does have a soft spot. I'm into her tough discipline. She represents good teaching, she cares! Sort of like the Simon of American Idol. Also, if you are passionate about English literature then you should get along quite well.
A REALLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYY HARD marker and she gives ALOT of homework. (especially reading) It seems like she thinks we don't have any other courses. So avoide her if u can but if not they are worse english teachers @ VC.
SHE IS A REALLY NICE PERSON!! DOESN'T FOOL AROUND SO DO YOUR WORK!! BUT IS OVERALL AN UNDERSTANDING PERSON IF SOMETHING COMES UP
I think that she is a nice techer. i had her for my 101. I wanted to take her for 102 but it didn't feet in my schedule. She gave a lot of home work, but it was not hard to do. She is cool and comprehensive. We had a lot of taem inclass work to do. Which was only prectice. At the end of the semester she brought us home made muffins. I got a 77% which i think is fine. I came from a french school. She was not a hard marker.
Helpful, but a hardmarker. A lot of work but at least most of the reading is more interesting than normal english classes. I wouldn't take her again, but you could do a lot worse at this school.
she gave way to much work, does she think that we have no other classes
okay i dunno what everyone is talking about, but i think this teacher's really nice, and she has a good sence of humor. i admit we have a lot of work sometimes, but isnt that the point of college?!?! and she's an ok marker, she'll give you a good grade if you do what she asked for.
i did learn a lot, her classes r interesting, BUT she does give a lot of homework, and shes a pretty tough marker....
she was not a good teacher, english i average usually 80% in her class got 66% and tried soooo hard...class average was 56% and she is a tough marker, that give out soo much homework and has alot of attitude, if u late, its over for u...
She's ok but shes not great at explaining and has a attitude problem. some of the stories weren't good and whats up with the sherlock Holmes. She makes us read 30 page stories with question due the next day. She is nice at times but I wouldn't suggest to take her.
Great if u'r a hard worker. Also really good for R-score 'cause class average really low. Really helpful, organized and knows her material. I learned a lot in her class.
Not the best teacher in the college. Assignments are most of the time unrelated to the topic of the class. Pretty hard marker. Not very professional and NEVER available out of class hours.
The way to get good grades with this teacher is to try hard. If she sees u're interested an actually work, u should have no problem.
Tough marker but nice teacher outside of class. Lots of reading but hey...that's why we're in school. Good teacher though
She's really a tough marker, it seems like she hates teaching, always look mad and boring, she's the worst teacher I've ever had...don't take her!!!
if you want to work hard and then fail,take her. If u want to spend ur entire semester reading boring books take her. Shes always tyred,doesnt know how to teach
If you like to read and spend your whole semester in english and get a bad mark, take her. She is dedicated to do this.
put it this way hse nice outside of class work work and oh ya work reading all kinds be staright up dont lie seems ok at first then she talks tons of homework.
no goals in her course / does not teach anything / too much work / don't know how to teach / the worse teacher in vanier i ever had...and a lot more
