Engl 1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Worst Prof I've ever had. English 1100 is a hard subject and she just makes it harder with her attitude. If your two minutes late she locks the door. Kicks you out for using your phone. Old fashioned in a bad way. Would not recommend her, AVOID IF POSSIBLE.

ENGL 1110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is NOT a good teacher. Not helpful,cryptic. She has a prob with almost everything, but she wont tell you that. Since eng is nt my 1st language i thought she was like with me only. I was wrong apparently. While every 1 paid around 500 bucks for her class and are still cursing , i paid a whooping 4500. Managed to pass but barely.

1234 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Martell is the worst instructor I've had. Unless you're literally the perfect student or one of her favorites, she is horrible. She's totally rude, laughs in your face, and ends up yelling at you in her office. She's also the hardest marker you'll come by. Her expectations are crazy. Getting a lower grade than your average is almost certain.

ENGL1202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Avoid her at all costs. It may seem as if she is a professor who is excited about the course material, but she is actually a know it all. I did not expect post secondary to be a cake-walk, I have an two semesters worth of experience with professors, and I can easily tell you, she is the worst professor. Avoid taking her unless you'd like to fail.

EnglS15 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

A very hard marker. She makes her essay topics very broad, and there's a lot of course material to go over. She made us read two long novels as well as a handful of short stories as well as numerous poems. It is very hard to keep up. I found her also very rude and treats her students like children.

ENG1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The worst teacher I have ever had. I ended up dropping the class because every assignment I did, I failed. I excelled in English all my life and taking English 1100 with another teacher had resulted in an A. Avoid her if possible

Eng1202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

i did an essay for her class and i have been using the same MLA style citation for 4 semesters and never had a problem with any other professor she gave me a D and without any comments or even explaining why it was wrong. I scheduled an appointment with her but she was away for the week, comes back next week and says i missed my chance, horrible!

ENGL1202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

While she certainly knows the topics she teaches, sadly 85% of the class will be about the holocaust, so if you're one that grows bored with the same old topic and related books, I'd choose a different prof. She is not terrible clear about what she expects from assignments, and occasionally does not explain what will be on exams. Quite tough.

She lightened up towards the end, but in general very specific in what she is looking for. Don't think she has given out any A's.

Terrible teacher, if you're not one of her "favorites" you might as well drop out. Very unclear in describing what she wants, and many useless and time-consuming assignments given.

She is difficult, but if you are honest with yourself, you will learn. Many students think its a fly class so when they find out she is strict when it comes to writing they complain. I learned much from her

engls27 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dreaded going to class. Class is so boring! She is all over the place when she teaches, never really gets to point just babbles on and on. Sometimes there?s no homework other times there?s a crap load. Once posted our homework on the website a day before it was due. Gives stupid random quizzes and is a really hard marker. GPA dropper don't take her

cecilia martell is a ridiculous teacher. she accuses people very quickly and will indirectly tell her class they are too stupid. she does choose favourites so if you're a suck up, you're safe. she doesn't tell you her requirements and marks very hard. she'll say one thing and mean the other. she likes to put people down to make herself feel smarter

Cecilia is the worst teacher at kwantlen. She has favourite students and picks on students she does not like. She's both **** and ****. You are not alowed to wear perfume/deoderant to her class because she is allergic and she will ask you to leave if you do. Her classes are old school and very very boring and she doesn't explain the assignments
