Eng101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I have been out of high school for about 10 years and I thought taking English 101 would not be too hard . Taking Mrs. Halls class was a bad idea !! Sorry I'm not up to date with all of the new English changes like the high school kids in the class. She makes you feel stupid for asking questions and dosnt have time to help to help you.

Prof Hall is a great teacher. The class consists mainly of 5 essays and some online exercises. She gives you hand outs with her expectations for the essays clearly explained. If you put forth effort into this class, your grade will reflect that. If you don't, your grade will reflect that as well. She doesn't give tests or quizzes, which is a plus.

Eng101H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She is an ok teacher but gets sidetracked very easily. Also, she expects the students to know exactly how to formulate each essay without giving much instructions before-hand. But if you have questions/concerns, she is ready to help.

I have taken 2 of Professor Hall's classes and plan on taking her again next semester.She is very hard when it comes to grading, however she clearly explains what she expects on each assignment.She has always promptly returned my e-mails and made herself available to help me.Bevause of her I have done well on my writing assignments in other classes

I currently have Professor Hall and I'm not a fan. Her grading is so hard and she sometimes changes dates to assignments which makes things so confusing. I am really struggling in this class and english is my BEST subject. She also takes forever or doesnt even get back to your emial which is key for online classes. She's polite but very difficult!

Do not take her class, got an F on my first paper. It was the first paper I wrote in over 8 years. Had a friend that teaches English at Penn State Harrisburg look at the paper, she said she would have gave me a low B high C. Also you will be lucky if she returns your phone calls or emails.

ENG101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Excellent professor. Blended class had two weekly discussion topics and one journal entry due on Saturday night. 4 essays. Great instruction on how to receive a good grade, but you have to work hard for an A! This is definitely a "no-slack class." Once you complete the course, you will have actual knowledge that will be useful in many courses!

Professor Hall is very intelligent and very good at her job. She is pretty tough but if you come to class and do the work and follow the guidelines and learn from her instruction, you will do well in her class, as well as being very well prepared for your other courses and your career.

If you want to have a great semester do NOT take her.. She will turn a great semester into the worst one you could ever have. That explaination alone speaks for itself. If you do take her... I told you so.

eng101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I am taking her class online. The assignments that are due on saturday we sometimes get on thursday. She blames everything on the new website, but none of my other teachers are having her problems. She gave us no instructions on our first paper, but expected us to know everything and i ended up with a D. very rude women.

I currently have Prof. Hall and although sometimes her assignments are not clear she still has good conversations in class and gives enough time to complete assignments. I would definitely recommend her.

Hall is am amazing professor! She is meticulous with her choices for readings and assignments. She expects students to attend lectures, and come prepared for class. I'm at an Ivy now, and Hall's classes prepared me well to succeed there. If you want coddled, she's not the prof for you. You will have fun, and be intectually stimulated.

Had Prof. Hall for Seminar, English Comp 102, and Intro to Lit. You should come to class with an open mind, prepared to read and write (a lot-these are English classes!)and join/initiate discussion. Picked interesting selections, including non-fiction and current works for ea. class. Gave great advice and direction to resources for class/college.

I would recommend Kim Hall to all the students who are in college to learn and not for a grade. She is tough, but honest and upfront in explaining her expectations. Attending class, completing assignments and hw are the key to success. Try getting paid and not come to work. It is basic expectation in life. Do your part and don't worry!!!

Professor Hall is awesome! She is super sweet and approachable. She doesn't pick favorites, but she doesn't like when people don't show up, don't do the work, and then expect help. It's college people! Anytime I emailed Prof. Hall, she responded promptly. Anytime I needed advice on an essay she helped me out!

ENG203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

If you are not familiar with American Writers, then be prepared to fail and receive no help. She picks favorites in the class and does not give anyone else a chance. Does not explain anything and just expects you to know everything that she is talking about. Grading is very inconsistent, and takes her FORever to grade something and hand it back.

If people want to complain about the way she teaches than fine but her personal life, clothes and age have nothing to do with teaching ability. She is great in my opinion. Putting someone down and spelling it wrong looks really bad

I have had Prof. Hall twice so far and will take her classes every chance I get. There are comments on here about how she dresses and information about her husband that are unfair to say the least. She is a hard Prof. but she is fair. If you do your work, show up and pay attention everything is fine.She's awsome
