Very good teacher. She will speak spanish almost the whole class which is somewhat helpul.Besides that fact, she is all over the place with what she expects on tests. Shes spacy and an airhead at times but overall an okay professor.

Dr. Zylo- Watkins is a fantastic professor. She knows the material well and can teach it well also. She gives the right amount of work. Her grading is fair and the class is fun. I enjoyed it. Definitely choose her if you have the opportunity!

She was a cool professor. Just study hard and after she teaches a grammar point in Spanish like a new tense, etc., she always has a quiz for that tense the next class. I learned a lot from her class and its worth taking her.

she is a really hard grader, she cannot teach properly and she rushes through every lesson like sometime the class is over and you did not understand anything that she taught,

The professor is nice but she doesn't spend enough time helping her students. She'll never stay after class to help students because she's rushes home. The reviews never match the test. We used the textbook a lot. She's never late. If you are fast learner take her, but if not, then stay away. Also, she yells out the names of those who are failing

Doesn't spend enough time on vocabulary (but I think that's more of a departmental issue). Reviews don't match the tests. Doesn't give clear due dates for when assignments are due. Complicates lessons that turn out to be very simple.

Her teaching style involves speaking majority in spanish. She isn't a hard professor and she is nice. However, she does not mind announcing who's failing to the entire class. Sometimes her reviews do not match the actual test which messes a lot of people up.

Very good class overall. She was very accessable in terms of extra help outside the classroom. For those of you who think she is not a good professor, its cause you are too used to having professors who just give you answers,she actually takes time to teach you.

She is a good professor. The class would have been better though if the syllabus was done by the professor, not the department. The vocabulary could have been skipped since most of us at this level should be able to pronounce words. Other than that she is very nice and tries to go out of your way to help you

She seems to be confused most of the class, she jums from topic to topic.she is not clear in her lectures and assumes we know what shes talking about. She is not understanding towards the students. the class is difficult and she uses the "memorize and regurgitate info" method of teaching. not one of my favorite professors.

Dr. Watkins is awesome! She cares about students and helps them as best as she can. She answers emails rapidly and makes the subject fun to learn. She is the BEST! Take her! This is a professor who absolutely loves her field and job! I highly recommend her!

Nice teacher, but very critical on grading and classes can sometimes be boring because of excessive use of Powerpoint and textbook.

Fantastic! I love that she uses blackboard and posts the lessons online, they are a big help for studying for her exams. Very passionate about the language, which makes you enjoy it too.
