HA96F Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A
"Tough Grader" "Gives good feedback" "Get ready to read"

Pretty average. She's nice, but she has those days when she's moody so she yells a lot. She is extremely helpful on essays although she's tough grading it. She gives you really good feed backs, teaches you a lot of great skills to help you become a stronger writing (my most favorite thing about her). Everything else is easy in the class. No test.

"Papers? More like novels" "Get ready to read" "Participation matters"

Her hand writing is terrible, she has a Indian accent. Not very clear about homework assignments. She also yells alot depending if she's having a bad day. GET READY TO READ! nonstop essay assignments, she grades pretty hard. Come to class on time or you wont get participation points, I wouldn't recommend her. One good thing, no tests.

LLD 01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

ROSHINI!!! One of the best professors EVER!! I took her class a couple years ago, but that never stopped her from remembering her students. She is an amazing professor that is willing to help you with your essays. She can be intimidating on the first day of class, but she'll help you with your essays as long as you're willing to learn.

Ms. Joseph was an extremely respectable professor. She was organized and reminded me of a good High School English AP teacher. Effort in improving each draft will most definitely help in achieving a passing grade.

LLD2-29 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: P

I do like the journals but too much revising of essays. Too harsh! Needs to be personable, laughs when you write your essay wrong. Not enough encouragement.

Great professor. Learned a lot about how to write essays. Very helpful during conference meetings and she writes down notes on your essays about what to fix and how to make your essay stronger.

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

RJ is a very nice professor. If you don't know how to write papers well, her class will make you become a better writer. Take her class because you will learn so much. We barely use the book because books were not ready at the bookstore. RJ really wants you to become a better write. Take her, she is someone that will teach well.

I honestly didn't really like her. She pressures you and can never be satisfy with your essay. She is very picky when it comes to essays. She'll always try to find the smallest flaws, but overall that I did improve. You'll learn from her, but get really annoyed.

Extremely helpful! She might appear as a harsh grader at first, but through the semester and one-on-one conferences you'll see that she really cares about helping everyone improve their writing skills. Awesome professor. (:
