She is very selfish in the sense that she sees a student is too advanced for the course and will keep them there. Other teachers offer and follow though with assisting students who are too advanced for this level of English. Don't take her class she won't help, makes you get in groups and nobody is ever prepared! She never teaches just group work

She's a good teacher but expects too much. Definitely do not take her if you want to skim by, but if you want to learn she's good.

make sure you make it on time to class and to every class she will notice even when you think she wont. make sure to pay attention and you'll do great in the class but even if your great if you miss a couple days it will affect your grade immensely.

The first english teacher who taught me a lot about writing an essay. Very helpful and considerably fair. If you wanat to learn, take her class. Many people in my class wished she taught 1A.

She's ok but not very approachable if you need anything. 10 min journal writing journal sessions at start of class. The whole class we get in partners and nobody knows what to say about the discussion very annoying. Alot of ESL in class so just retake your ace ment not worth it. Expects too much from a college student and does not reciprocate.

I think she's a ok teacher and tries her best to explain and help, but she likes top help her star students most even when others need help. She thinks her class should be your #1 priority in life, which is not practical. Also very harsh when grading!

Well, all is good except the grades for essays. She is a great English teacher, and she taught how to write an essay. She gave us rubrics so that we can know what we do good or bad in the paper. If you are a ESL student taking her class, remember that you need to work very very very hard. Otherwise, you will definitely fail in this class.

I like her a lot but her essays are hard to find topic sentences in ENGL96. Don't know why people says she is easy in ENGL96. In ENGL96, we do 3 essays during the summer such as we learned about technology and social network. However, her ENGL93 is much easier. Overall, she makes students happy and likes all students.

Ms. Smith is an enthusiastic teacher. She also nice and easy to communicate with. However, she doesn't give enough feedback on essays and harsh grading on essays. We only did 2 essays for the semester. Also,1 in-class summary for midterm and 1 in-class essay for final. Overall, she a fair teacher and she gave me a C for midterm and final grade.

She's one of the best English teachers I've ever had. I normally hate english but her class was very enjoyable because shes very engaging and she teaches you a lot of ways to improve argumentative essays. Attendance and participation is key. I'd recommend her to everyone especially to those who particularly do not like English. Great teacher

Professor Smith does an amazing job at preparing you for the future. The classroom always has a good energy, and she creates a strong peer to peer network within the class. She will make you a stronger writer, if you want it. If you have the chance, and are lucky enough to take her course, be sure to take full advantage.

I loved her class(eng93), she is a great teacher and I learned a lot. She checks attendance every time. We did only two essays and she really wants them to be good. The only down size was that she takes long time to return you papers but I would take her class again for sure.

Ms. Smith is so helpful. During her lectures she would tell you what is expected on your papers step by step. She is strict about attendance, but I've walk in the class thirty minutes after class starts and doesn't even mention your late unless you do it often. Very respectful to her students and easy to talk. I hesistated coming to this class in t

Ms.Smith is an easy teacher. Only 2 essays. She always finishes class earlier. She asked we to buy a grammar book, but she didn't use it at all. Take her, if u want easy teacher, but u just learn a litter from her.

Very good teacher. Shes the best ENGL teacher I've had since... middle school, and that was way long ago. I've learned A LOT from her class and it carried over to my new class. Currently, I'm the only one in my class getting A's because of this teacher while everyone else getting C's and B's.
