Courtney is a great professor! I took her Monday evening class. She is funny, fresh and hip. She is very clear on what she expects from your essays. Only 4 essays, 10 homework assignments and in-class writings. You MUST do all! Follow instructions, bring your required supplies and you will be fine :) ps. Don't be late because she will mark you!

I loved Courtney's class. The book is cheap and we only use it a little bit. We mainly read articles. She keeps it interesting. Also has cute, stylish outfits :)

Freshman Comp yo! She was the first hipster writer I have ever met as a teacher. She turns a challenging summer course into one of the best classes of my college. I got that "Summer Time"!

Took her English 100 night class. She's incredible teacher. Really sweet, happy to be there, and she's pretty. She teaches in a way that we can all relate to, young hip. Best english 100 teacher hands down. Take her. You won't regret it!

If you are up to the challenge, you will learn a lot. This is a class that will prepare you for real life writing skills. I was not a fan of English Composition, but now appreciate it. I will use my new knowledge going forward, and cannot say enough about how good this teacher is. Give this class a chance; you will come away a better person.

Take her class! She's so funny. I guess it's because she's a screen writer so that's why she's so creative when it comes to writing. I hate writing but she makes it fun. She gives you very open topics to write so it's a good thing. Participation is a must so participate. It's part of the total grade.

Courtney is a fun homie. She has swag. Take her class. She literally turns a night class into a chill, relax-time class. She makes things clear. Her work is decent if you do it. She is very open-minded and easy-going.

We just started the semester and it's the second week and i can tell already that she is way better than most teachers. Also she s smoking hot and has a great personality which makes the class fun and interesting. Group and class participation a must, which can suck. But like i said unconventional teaching methods plus uber hotness equals thumbs up

I really enjoyed the way she taught the class! She was calm and patient, and whenever you need help she'd be there for you. Plus most of her essays had some pretty fun topic to write about. I'd strongly reccomend her if you're unsure about who to take.

Class participation can bring up your grade so always show up and speak up in class. Turn your papers in early to have her give suggestions prior to it being graded. I'd do her
