ESL099 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Yeah, she's really strict when it comes to grading but that's because she wants all of us to work hard and improve our English. Only those people who do not put in effort give bad reviews about her. If you passed her class, then you've earned the grade. I've learned a lot from her!!!! She will definitely prepare you for ENG100.

Eng 060 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Don't Recommend at ALL. Too picky and hard to understand. Will never take with her again. She's very tough with grading and never answers a question clearly. Doesn't care about students and their grades. Not helpful. Avoid her !!!

ESL 060 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She is not willing to help or motivated to teach. She doesnt care if students are trying to learn if they are not good yet. She only cares about students that do well already. She never answered my question. I learned nothing from her class. I even attened every single class, always participated and did hws all the time.

Ok, she doesn't care if students are trying to learn or not if they are not good yet. She is not willing to help and not motivated to teach. She only cares about studens that can do well. I leaned nothing from her class even I attended every single class, always participated and did hw all the time. Maybe that's because she's old.

ESL 099 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Mrs Colvin is a good and helpful teacher, and she teaches you how to write. But, strict on essay and you have to have a good background in grammar.It's not very hard, but you have to put some effort.

ESL121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took her ESL 121 class last semester. She's very easy to make-up homework.She's so funny, and crazy.But if you really want to study grammar, she's bad at that.If you wanna get A or B easily,I recommend you to get her class.You don't need to learn much,but you still pass easily.Just take her class,then stay at home and get grade(must take tests)

ESL155 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is easy.if u want to pass her class, just study hard, and try ur best. she dropped the lowest test, and try to help you increase your score. she didn't explain grammar well, so if u want to study don't take her, but if u want to pass, take her. her class is easy and little bit boring.

I took her class before.I will never forget her. To be honest, she is the worst teacher I know. She seem never get ready for the class.She doesn't know what she is doing in the class. jump here and there.I wonder if she is a full time teacher. Maybe not, if so I recomand the school fire her.

She is not really responsible for her job; that's why so many people enjoy her "easy" class. If you want to learn more Eng, don't take her class.
