She was easy to pass with but classes were boring. I felt she pulled marks out of nowhere, but I wont complain because I managed to do decent. I wouldn't recommend but if you get here its not the end of the world, there are much worse

Okay let me start off by saying that this hoe gave everyone a 7% on an assignment "by mistake". I showed up to two classes because she did the same shit every class. she gets carried away and you will want to commit by the end of the class. You will question your existence as soon as she gets up and starts talking. By the time she corrects your work you'll have a stable job, a house, two kids and a fkn dog.

Her quizzes are difficult but you're allowed to use the book. She will always help via FaceTime or if you go to her office hours. As for the essays, some comments say she doesn't give above 70 but I've gotten above 90 on both, so I think I'd you put in effort it's attainable

She is a nice lady, sometimes gets off topic, but overall a nice lady. In terms of teaching, she is an extremely hard marker and does not give students above a 70 on essays. Had her for intro to college Engish and I would not take her again

Ogrizek makes it clear that she is not teaching high school, so those students who say they are 'lost' are not being honest. She expects you to figure things out, which is what good teachers do. If you want to be spoon-fed find another teacher.

I had her for ICE. Classes sometimes were not clear in terms of what you were going to do but she still made it wonderful to be in. She is super chill and like everyone said yes she's a tough marker. She does teach you a lot! So you improve. She made us do presentations on grammar and she was chill about it. I did not feel pressured in her class whatsoever. Tests were annoying but okay (you work together with everyone). For essays, she tells you exactly what she wants. I recommend her.

Here's the thing, although she's a sweetheart she's very clueless. She doesn't seem to know what she has planned and is very unclear when it comes to instructions on writing essays, journals, etc. She tends to be a hard-marker, especially when she doesn't particularly like you.

She does not seem to really enjoy when you share a different interpretation than hers in a story for example. She also seems to have some kind of a grudge against me for no apparent reason. Her explanations are only based on her interpretation, and seems very fixed on that. Overall, I would really recommend avoiding her. Hard grader, quiz based on details that are not even important, such as hair color, and seems most of the time lost.

I am completely lost in this class. I don't even know what we are doing, and how it is suppose to actually help us in any way. She seems to know much about the subject, but can't explain it very well. If you liked a class where you are most of the time left alone with instructions, but no guides, well go for it. However, I would not recommend taking her.

Very fine and gracious, she gives explicit character description in the genre literature class. She helps to understand the conventional style of theme and to relate it to contemporary issues. She sees you through the proper steps on how to apply it in a relaxed pace for the preparation to strong essays. She is very understanding, available and has been open to my few contrasting notions. To fail to appreciate and take advantage of what she offers mirrors a student weakness.

Had her for my first semester ICE course. Course material was boring; seemed to all have the same theme. There were a few times where I felt personally attacked for minor misdemeanors, like she had a problem with me. Seems she also did not want opinions that contrasted from her opinions either. Would not recommend.
