She is an awesome lady. Very smart, learned lots of stuff from her.She was my favorite teacher at Vanier but she is gone now. She is retired i heard.
the best teacher i have ever had she is like no one else very informed entertaining and super nice i never learned so much before in an english class
Shes very old, but very very nice! she does not take attendance, i barely showed upto to that class but ended up with an 80. Very easy!
tells you what she wants for the essay, gives you clear notes, easy marker and for the journal just make it look really good because at the end she only looks at your effort and not every entry.
Explains everything, so you just take notes and study :D
I studied East European literature with her and she is awesome
great teacher very informed very nice lady interesting material
Nice person, "old school" (which I like), easy marker, considerable amount of homework but she's pretty reasonable about it, and somehow makes classes interesting. Btw, attendance IS sometimes taken.
honestly, my favorite teacher. she will always be nice to you, be nice to her, too.
such a nice lady! willing to help students and explains really well. doesnt reallly take attendance. I learned alot of stuff! I recommend you take her! :D
you need to work in her course but I learned lots of stuff, she's absolutely the best, really n ice teacher,
famtastic. unbelieveable. very giving and helpful, smart, likes her students a whole lot
extremely nice teacher. You have to work abit though in her class if you wanna get 90s. She explains very well though and her tests are pretty easy :) I would take her again!
I took her in Fall06 she is very kind, she explains well, her tests are fair. Even if she had a hard time with some people in that class, the rest of us liked her a lot and i will definetly take her a
i have never seen anything like her, she is higly exceptional human being, like nothing i have ever come across, you wont regret taking her, i think when she retires there will be no one to replace he
SHE IS ABSOLUTELY amazing.... ive never learnt so much in an english class. just do all your assignments and homework..youl do really good i loved her
She is very understanding and likes students who put some effort into her assignments. Take her and you wont regret it.
she's very serious and expects the students to take their work seriously too; very interesting teacher, very nice lady; highly recommended
.really loves her students; great teacher, large workload though, kind woman, but it is doable and is very interesting
She is good and knows her english and is very passionate about literature. Howver she is extremely boring.
very hard marker, picks favorites, she can sometimes be nice to her students but is very old school
nice old lady who is very relaxed . can skip all her classes and do perfectly fine as long as you give in your work, which is usually just journals and one essay with an in class test
if you do not do your work, sleep in class or talk, yea , don't take her. I was in that class and students came in late all the time, did not do their work on time. She's a great teacher,the best
Ive never felt so low in my academic work in my life. All she kept on telling my class was " Students are so elementary these days" Trust me when i tell you dont take her!!!!!!!!
She is so down to earth, very fond of her work,although there is work to be done...
Exceptionally kind, exceptionally sensitive, exceptionally bright. But you need to work in her courses.
A sensitive super intelligent woman with a great deal to say about literature, art and the world. Lots of work but worth it; you learn from her; it's not just air; very kind, very sweet, very amazin
LARGE WORKLOAD, sweet amazing giving teacher!!!!!!!!
Ms. Ponomarenko has a great reading voice; she is sweet, and by that I mean she cares about her students and speaks to us like her own children! This class had a heavy workload, but if you keep on top of your journals, you won't feel overwhelmed. She is very knowledgeable, and was very interested in me being the same nationality as her...I felt a bit taken aback! Anyways, you won't regret taking her as your english teacher!
There are three words to describe her: amazing, brilliant, and kind. You won't regret taking her. She gives lots of work but at the end of the semester it gets slower. There is no on like her. I never had a course by anyone like her. I loved her.
demanding and somewhat odd, but class isnt too boring. she expects alot from her students but cares alot about them. i loved her.
This woman is a bit nuts, but she's pretty nice. She has a very nice reading voice for poetry. She gives a substantial work load, and has certain expectations about writing skills. I think she speaks something like 8 languages. She knows what she's talking about, and explains everything very well. Don't tell that you don't like keats though...I made that mistake.
Wonderful teacher.Very inspiring and intelligent.If u like Greek history and literature u will be amazed!but: a lot of work,very picky .If u re very good in English it's gonna be okay but u ll still need to study a lot. her class is the only one where u re not gonna fall asleep!
Fran is a VERY good teacher who listens and is ALWAYS willing to help her if you go see her. The class is very hard especially if you don't like romanticism, but none the less, she's a very good teacher who is very fair
Her workload is perfect for 103. If you are lazy, this is not the course for you. She's smart but have a major attitude problem. Very serious and demanding teacher, not easy going!
she's very picky and likes your works to be perfect all around, but i guess that's normal for a teacher. she's very demanding but she's a nice woman
she is very demanding....alot of journals to write...boring...gives alot of work to do...and specially, likes to fail students...
She is a wonderful teacher. All those that have given her a bad rating are lazy students who want points for doing nothing.If u guys are looking for a good grade without doing any work well shes not the teacher. She wont give out pts for free but if u try she will.Compared to the other english teachers out there shes is the BEST!!
3000 word essay... no outline... study 100 poems... 20 journals about romanticism...read 2 books....(borinng ones) hmmm.. you think she worths a try?
she s a good teacher.she gives lots of h/w in the beginning.there is a lonng essay to do.write lots of crap. at least 3 booklets..in 4hrs lots journals borring!
realy nice, very hard at first but easy at the end of semester when you need a brake, interesting and inspiring
She knows a lot of stuff. I took Romanticism and it was pretty interesting. It was a lot of work in the beginning but it pays off. Really nice, clear teacher.
She is extremely intellegent!! knows soo much about the world.. Very nice person.. some homework but fair.. jus listen (dont talk!!!!) and ull do fine..
A beautiful woman with a big heart!!! If you are a romantic and sensitive person take her intro to romanticism course! Very nice teacher!
amazing teacher. She knows her stuff and knows how to teach it. She talks during the whole class...all u gotta do is listen. Doesn't give hard work.
perfect! Ecxellent! the best u can find... clear..good marks...knows an infinite lot...very interesting person...makes english easy...fair...funny... THE BEST!!!
This IS the teacher to take if you are sick of doing the same old stuff in Engl. Knows her stuff, good marker, just don't talk in her classes or she gets frust
She's a bit borring but she's not a hard marker just write alot and she gives you the mark you deserve, she's very fair
Nice teacher, easy course but for her, 90`s an amazing mark and she won`t give higher
she's a good teacher with excellent opinions. Sge knows her stuff and is respected and highly recommended
Hard Marker and Boring but let me pass even though i sucked at her class
Very sweet woman. Men: you'll wish you met her when she was 20
