Ms Eng teaches from the heart and holds us to a high standard. She is available to her students and really cares about them. She has a lot of life experience that can help us if we are interested and willing to listen. Sometimes her teaching sounds like a philosophy class rather than English, so that's kind of different.

I learned more about her life in this class then the subject she was teaching. She is a extremely hard marker, rarely give out A's. She expects you to memorize word form word of a novel for your test. Plus she sees no problem in giving out 4-5 hours of homework a night.

Test way outside what's taught, give low grades compared to other teachers. Although helpful if you ask, she marks to every single detail and take points off for that.

Ms. Eng assigns WAY too much homework! Although she is a nice person outside of class, she gives out multiple long assignments per class, which is almost impossible to complete with all the homework from other classes in Grade 11 and 12. As far as class time goes, we spend way too much time discussing irrelevant material and learn little about the subject matter that is required to achieve high grades. Some tests given are AP English style tests, putting a lot more pressure on us students.

If english is not a strong subject for you and the only reason you got decent grades in previous years if for working extremely hard, she is not the teacher for you. She gives copious amounts of homework that stresses you out and makes you give up on trying to get a good grade. I went from in the mid 80s to high 60's because of miss eng. She also told us that we should lessen are work hours so we can do the excessive amount of homework she assigns even though some of us need to save for uni.

In her opinion, all her students have no homework from other subject and will study literature in the University

I had Ms. Eng for English 11 and 12. I ended up with an A on the provincial, but I attribute that to the fact that I learned absolutely nothing in either of those years. She teaches to the test -- other teachers teach you to think, and you end up over thinking the essay questions. For making me forget all the fabulous things I learned from Mr. Obeck and Mrs. Herd, I thank you. The provincial was much easier.

Ms Eng is an amazing English teacher in the sense that she knows how to teach in a way students understand, however I find she does give more homework then necessary and the vocab is not very helpful seeing as it is far too simple.

Because I had Mrs. Eng as my English teacher on three separate occasions I got to go to university. If she hadn't given me all that homework, all those tests and assignments I wouldn't have gone from a regularly all around C student to an A student in English. I wouldn't have gotten in the 90s on both my English and English Lit provincials and I wouldn't have brought my average up enough to get into Ottawa U. Thank you Mrs. Eng.

Hates us non-AP kids: she gives us harder tests, more homework, and less chances for us to contribute to class discussion

She is an extremely hard teacher. If English is not a great subject for you, switch out. She gives large amounts of homework, and it is not easy. I think her classes are hard cause I haven't had teachers like her before, and she expects that you already know how to do everything. She is nice though, and if you make an appointment in the morning she is helpful. Make sure you get on her good side, because if your not, it will be your worst year of English ever - I can 100% garuntee that.

Has the wisdom of a 200 year old. Very kind-hearted. Super hard tests - too many tricks and she makes the questions sound harder than they are to confuse you. Must be insightful to do good in her class. Has an extreme paranoia for kids using tutors and etc. Sometimes she is too skeptical about students. But personality-wise, she's wonderful.
