"Lectures are long" "Participation matters" "Clear grading criteria"

took her class as an elective, thought it was easy if you actually do the weekly readings (they're short stories, I started reading the summaries near the end). Go to class, she talks about the reading which really helps prep you for the tests and essay. overall good, approachable proff make sure you know how to write a solid essay you'll be ok

she's honestly really sweet, she really likes to engage with her students and ask for them to speak in class a lot. if you speak in class im sure she'd boost your mark. her presentation marking was tough but the final essay was a joke, if you showed up and paid attention you'll get an easy A

Amazing professor. Ryerson is very lucky to have her. She loves to teach, and has a keen interest in helping students achieve their best in school, as well as in life goals. She engages the class and opens your eyes to many interpretations and perspectives of readings, which you would have not been aware of. She is no doubt a great teacher!

Prof Ionita is really friendly and her lectures were straight forward. As long as you read the books and can write fairly well, you can get an A in this course.

Didnt really know what to expect in this class but she's awesome, you dont even need to read all the books! Just be familiar with a few and you'll be fine! She's a pretty lenient marker. I doubt you can get less than a 70

Very very helpful prof! I hated writing essays but I loved it because of the prof (the way she teaches, explains and help you out and explain stuff easily until you get it). She marks very fairly. I definitely preferred her class. Do the work, attend the class, you will get B to A. Enjoy!!!! :)

Really great prof! A bit intimidating a first because she might come off as being strict. But she made this course really enjoyable! Lectures were engaging and interesting, she always uses relevant examples that are relatable and help explain a concept well. Also, very reasonable marker on essays. Loved this course because of the prof!

ENG888 ENG520 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Such a quality professor. Very knowledgeable about the subjects she engages the class in. Is very open-minded when reading papers, and is not like other profs who mark harshly because they don't agree with what you're arguing. Wish I could have discovered her earlier, I would have taken all my English courses with her! Highly recommended.

ENG212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had took this course to fill in one of my electives. We read and analyzed few short books and stories from Homer. She gets everyone involved and doesn't just teach you about the story but the history/details to why and view points of the time the text was written. There's an essay to write, she gives you enough time and marks your rough copy.

CENG222 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Extremely knowledgable, and even more importantly, interested in providing a rich learning experience for the students. Expect to read a fair amount (not excessive), and participate in class discussions. Her class management skills allow for plenty of solid class discussions as well as lecture time. Highly recommended!
