This teacher told me that my english was bad during my first semester on the second day of class. I have never been this discouraged in my life (especially for a first year). I cannot believe a teacher has the guts to ever discouraged a student like that. I switched out of her class right away and to my surprise I was doing well with another english teacher (80% +). For the three classes spent with her there are a lot of readings and she is quite monotoned. There are easier teachers out there...

Extremely horrible teacher. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Very strict on grading, extremely subjective and if she doesn't like you she will give you a hard time. She just rants for 2 hrs straight giving you a hard time trying to stay awake and her essay topics are often unclear.

if she likes you, yay you are getting yourself a good grade in her class, but if she doesn't, gg r score. if she doesn't like you, she won't even try to help you when you seek her advice. she's very subjective. to get her to like you, participate a lot in class and laugh/agree with everything she says/does

She is a fair teacher. Had her for two English classes, if you like what she's teaching you will find her class interesting. I love how she tries to minimize the number of essays that we need to do in class. She makes us do oral presentations and watch movies. The orals are really something that boost the mark and movies are just fun and interesting :) She does have favorites, but her favorites are the ones who are interested in the course so if you are interested, you can be her favorites too

Avoid at all costs. Very hard to understand what she wants. Lectures put the whole class to sleep. Her comments on my essays are some of the most savage I've ever seen. No helpful or constructive comments. Just lets you know you suck. Tried following in her class but she just endlessly doodles words on the board in a random fashion without any link between them.

Had her for detective fiction. Lots of interesting reads (Sherlock Holmes, Edgar Allen Poe...) that she's clearly passionate about. She can be a bit rude, but she still manages to be a pretty good teacher. I would recommend her if you think you'll be interested in what she's teaching. Otherwise, you might find her lectures boring.

She's a good teacher... I don't know, people like to complain about her but honestly, once you get to know what she expects from you it's not that hard to pull a good mark... You have to work hard at the beginning to really get to know what she wants, but after wards it'll gradually get easier. I recommend her as a teacher. Her lectures are sometimes pretty boring though.

I took Intro to college English with her and I personally loved her teaching style. It is clear that she loves her subjects and brings dynamism in her class. Assignments wise, just a few readings and preparation for group talks. Her exams are pretty easy, as long as you study everything. For the essays, my own experience is to ask her questions during her office hours and she will lead you to your thesis statement. She will even tell you how to organize your body paragraphs. Great teacher!

Most of her essays are for home. It is hard to stay awake at her class if u sit behind, but in front, not too bad. She sometimes has a bipolar attitude... she can be really nice, but when she is in a bad mood, it'other thing. If you can really keep up really well with her and understand the class. It's gonna be pretty easy for you. As well, take notes when she explains and writes stuffs on board. It's SUPER USEFUL for your essays and you can almost get a 85 easy :)

Super nice and helpful (if she likes you. Sitting in the front row and answering her questions helps). She talks ALOT, but everything is useful. Easy to get good grades if she likes you. Hard if she doesn't.

STAY AWAY! Seriously. If there is anyone else, take them instead. She rambles on for two hours straight. Says "um" a lot. In terms of her essay topics, it is often unclear what she wants. She picks favourites and if she doesn't like you, she wont hesitate to show it. She is worse than unhelpful in her office hours, after waiting hours to meet her, she is known to offer misleading advice for your essay.

I had her for two classes and I loved both because the subjects were very interesting and actually got me hooked. I would definitely take another of her classes if I could. On the other hand, she's far from easy. Be prepared to work a lot and work hard =P But if you like the themes of her classes, you'll do well anyways. She's very sweet! If you're not into writing however, then I'd probably advise you to avoid taking her class. But if you are, then you'll certainly like it!

I liked this teacher. Assignments are basically an easy 100. She is so helpful during office hours. And she has some pretty interesting stories for us to read in her Detective Fiction class. The only problem is the amount of stuff that we do in this class...if you're good with managing your time though, you could get a relatively high mark though.

PAINFUL 2 HRS. PAIN-FUL. she just keeps talking talking and TALKING NON STOP. She definitely has favorites. Likes to do a lot of group work at the beginning of the class, which is absolutely useless. If you have a laptop, make sure to bring it with you or else you will regret it. oh, and she gives a lot of homework, esp readings (Detective Fiction) and assignments. However she is willing to read your drafts and help you write your essay. She will not hesitate to go hard on people she doesnt like
