    Currently taking class with her. All the negative comments are true. Very bad mistake taking her class. She does not teach but expects everyone to do essays correctly with no knowledge how to do them. I wish i could go back in time and never meet her. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    I got an A in the class, BUT this professor was one of the worst I've ever taken. She starts the class off by saying You're not in high school anymore. then proceeds to tell her the tardy/absence policy. As long as you can write and are familiar with MLA format you'll be fine, but you won't enjoy the class at all. ...Continue reading

    Very easy. Papers are not hard. No length limit, just long enough to get a good point across. Debates are fun, and not graded very hard. Easy to get a good grade if you do every assignment and show up to class and participate. ...Continue reading

    I took her hybrid class for English 1302. By far the best decision I've ever made! She lectured in class and then we had a discussion post due online. The class included 1 research paper, 1 argumentative essay, and 1 annotated bibliography. She is very understanding and will extend deadlines if you communicate with her and she grades easily! ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    She is enjoyable to listen to and very funny, she gets side tract very often and is open to the students about her personal life. She loves Michael Jackson, but when it comes to the work and grades, it was a miss for me. Creative writing is my interest and this is a structured, I mean steal structured class, do exactly what she says, no more. ...Continue reading

    Took the class online - he was VERY helpful, VERY clear, gave good concrete feedback before during and after grading assignments, you do (in the online course) have to devote time to class, things were due like every other day - and you have to make some sense, you can't just swing thru it, but if you try and ask for help, he's always there A+++ Loves comedy! Especially Richard Pryor... Only 3 grades first two are really easy essays second is a group project which is coming out really nicely. ...Continue reading

    TAKE DUNN! I took her first-year writing class, she is so nice! If you're not good at writing papers, GO TO HER OFFICE HOURS. She's always more than happy to help you pass, because she knows that writing isn't for everyone! Only 2 major essays & she grades the drafts as well. I suck at writing and passed with a B+! (: ...Continue reading

    If you take her hybrid be aware that there's work outside of class. Her grading is a little unfair not everyone excels in English/writing so I think she needs to ease up on her grading pen!

    I enjoyed the class and I hate english. They are a bit confusing at times, however, he helps out people that attend class. Read the essay book, and you shouldn't get less than a B.

He is also the hottest motorcyle riding english teacher I have ever seen! ...Continue reading
