Alyson is an amazing teacher and one of the nicest teachers I've ever had. I had her for Irish Literature and it was an amazing class. Alyson is super passionate about her subject and it shows. Class discussions were super interesting and she always encouraged the class to participate. I learned a lot during class and it helped me a lot with my essays. She is a fair grader and if you aren't happy with your mark, she is willing to reconsider your grade. I highly recommended this class!

I had her for Contemporary American Drama. I was scared to take her because I hated reading plays in high school, but the plays she gave us to read were extremely interesting and not like Shakespeare at all. She's very kind, helpful and understanding! She's extremely knowledgeable and will prepare you well for the essays and tests. Just remember to take notes during the discussions! She ends class early at times and will always meet you outside of class to help. Overall I recommend taking her!

I took Alyson for 102 (american contemporary drama) and 103 (Irish literature) and I really liked her. There’s a lot of readings but they’re fairly easy and if you do them, you will get 95+ on the reading quizzes. She has her own style to essays but after the first one it should be easy to master (she doesn’t give over 90% so 85% is really good to her) and you can always go see her in between classes to get feedback and ideas for your essay. Your success in her class is based on attendance.

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!!!!!

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.

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.

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 :)

When it comes to personality, she is very very nice, helpful and understanding. In short, she's perfection. If you come to class prepared, you'll do fine. I'd recommend her without any hesitation <3 :D
