Had her for ICE or intro to college english. Worst experience I have ever had with a teacher. Super unclear and a hard marker. She does cancel class a lot but not worth it because you never understand what's going on. Stay away if possible.

Do you enjoy sleeping in the morning? take her 8am class. She cancels all the time. Her class is a complete joke. You don't have to show up for half the classes and still be able to get an 87%. What I learned in her class? that watching her play youtube videos at 8am counts as a class...

Had her for the Jane Austen class and really regretted it. She is really disorganised, always decides the subjects of essays and assignments last minute therefore you don't really understand them yourself. She corrects really badly will give you a low grade witout justifying herself and her classes are really boring that class was honestly a pain. The books were good but she just re-read what we had to read at home with a monotone voice. If you can avoid her, so do

Wendy is very unclear about everything she says. She always rambles on about completely irrelevant things and you generally do not need to pay attention. She is a very lazy teacher so her quizzes are very general and she doesn't assign much work. If you do the readings (or even if you don't), you should do well in her class. She also cancels a lot of classes and will give you a similar mark for the entire semester. She does want her students to succeed and will offer make up assignments usually.

Thank god she cancelled class a lot, or I wouldnt have been able to get through this class. Doesn't know what shes talking about, everything she says has no relevance to what you are doing. She marks really hard but doesnt provide reason for the marks she gives you. This class was a joke, AVOID HER.

Had her for intro to college English, has literally no idea what she's talking about half the time, very unclear, and if she doesn't like you believe me she makes it very clear. Demonstrates clear favoritism amongst students. Only upside of taking her is that she cancels class quite frequently. Overall, I don't recommend taking her.

I had her for intro to college english. Very monotone teacher, often doesn't talk about anything that is necessary to the class. Often rambles about topics that are un-important, most of the time she just sends documents to read but re-reads them in class. Would not recommend. The only good thing about her was she cancelled a lot. You could've missed so many classes and not missed anything at all. She's also a hard grader. DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS.

Had her for Jane Austen and her World class. At 8AM in the morning. It was such a boring class. The material is pretty easy, all you have to absolutely do is READ. All the time, just read before you go to class, otherwise you're not gonna make it. She speaks the entire class, and she will ask questions to see who actually read the chapter. She doesn't help you for essays but gives extra time. Also, don't expect her to answer your MIO, she doesn't read it. You'll see "unread" 4 days after.

Actually the most boring teacher you'll ever get, I had her Monday mornings and she'll put you to sleep in seconds and then tell you off for falling asleep in her class.. she's really disorganized and doesn't have much of a plan throughout the semester on what you'll be doing. Only good thing is that she cancels classes every now and then.

She does not know what she's talking about, and she goes off on random tangents you don't need to know. Do well on your first assignment because you will get the same mark all semester, such a joke of a class. Note quotes she points out in your book and you'll be set for the essays (which are both in class/the lab if it's free). I did well but I really did not enjoy the books, Pride and Prejudice and The Sun Also Rises, ughh.

Good teacher. She is very fair in grading essays and is not strict. She cancels her classes A LOT! I had her in The Novel, so if you are ok with reading books, doing quizzes on the books and than an essay on it, you will be golden. Just make sure you read the books! Try not to miss her class, take notes and pay attention to what she says when she explains about the books, the quizzes will be based on notes. In the essays she will make you take quotes from the books, so make sure you read them!

I took The Novel and i liked it with her, the books were Austen and Hemingway. She is pretty easygoing about the essays, you write each one within 2 classes and if you happen to not finish she will let you finish it up in another time. We only read 2 novels so it was pretty chill, but may be boring if you do not like the books. She gives a lot of lecture and is not too strict about talking to friends,as long as you are not disruptive. She cancels a few times. I didn't like the quizzes though.

She's a reasonable marker! I enjoyed her class. She did get rather unlucky throughout the semester which caused her to cancel pretty often, which led to having less material for her to grade us on (though it did not affect me all that much). Don't be apathetic, take notes while going over short stories, be polite. You know, usual things a student should do. I find if she likes you, she'll be approachable and helpful to you.

Definitely the worst teacher I have ever had. Cancelled 6 clas.ses in the semester, lost assignments, had pop quizzes worth 10% of final grade due to lack of time (which goes against our student rights), extremely unorganized and unprofessional. She was late to most clas.ses and often showed up unprepared. She did not follow the course outline at all. Total waste of time.

I had her for literature and culture, and she's a fair marker. If you want a break, take her. However, she is very unorganized to the point where it gets frustrating and you feel like pulling your hair out. She cancels class A LOT. Overall, the class itself was quite dull, but incredibly easy. She is very lenient, so you don't have to meet deadlines with her. She always accepts late material.

What I disliked the most was that she was unorganized! I can't take it when teacher are not organized! I went into ''Jane Austen and her world'' to learn. I didn't get much and the course was going too slow. I wasn't challenged. Don't take her if you want to learn. She is sweet though. Quizzes are easy. Got 90's in my essay.

The most unorganized teacher I've ever met. I would advise against taking her class. Although the books we read in her class "The Novel" were interesting, because she cancelled so many classes; we were all stuck reading 50+ pages within 2 days. Also, if you like knowing your marks as you go along with the semester...she hardly gives you your marks or assignments back for that matter.

Her class was sort of ridiculous, she's not organized at all and cancels classes all the time. It was really hard to keep up with the pages she expected us to read in the assigned novels because we missed so many classes and had to catch up at the end of the semester. She also does a lot of pop quizzes so you need to make sure you stay ahead in your reading. Overall her "The Novel" class was really easy, but you need to spend a lot of time reading if you want to do well. Friendly and funny too!

She's incredibly boring... Her Jane Austen class was a waste of time, although very easy to pass, since all she does is read out loud all the chapters that you were supposed to read BEFORE coming to class. Don't get me wrong, I find Jane Austen's work pretty interesting, but Thatcher really made it sound boring by not teaching us anything new. She's also very lenient. Watch out for her quizzes, though. It's the only tricky part of this course.
