It seems like waste my time when I am taking her class. No improvement at all. I feel like most of the students are crap in her eyes. And she does not care about her students. Maybe she is a good businessman, but she is not a good professor anyway. I will never take her class again. Bad luck to meet this professor in my school life.

Doesn't give her own feedback. Just asks other students to comment on peers' works. No constructive criticism. TOO laid back & not beneficial if you're looking to improve your designing skills. When it comes to grading, she suddenly decides your work is lacking and assigns Bs, but when asking for help she has nothing to say. Eh, i'd avoid her.

SHE IS THE WORST PROFESSOR I HAVE NEVER SEEN!!!She never told students what's wrong with their projects. Students cannot revise their projects for a higher grade once she grades it. She just focus on few good students and ignore the rest students. When I ask her a question during the break, she reject to answer me and she said she is taking break!

We just took the midterm, and I still haven't learned any new techniques in photoshop or illustrator. She assigns homework, and reads her slides - which are all on the principles, elements... of design. If you don't already know photoshop or illustrator at all RUN! As a person she's nice, as a teacher she could use some help.

Unhelpful, biased, and unprofessional. Most of the class time is spent with her on her cell phone running her own business. Don't expect to do well if you like to think outside of the box. Once she decides to not like something no amount of improvement will make her change her mind.

The worst and most unprofessional teacher I have ever had in all my college career. I could make a laundry list of gripes, but they are all listed on this site anyhow. Suffice to say they are ALL too true!

I guess she's still there for a reason and its for her to teach media kits for identity branding for the whole semester. thats what you do all semester, logo applications. she's easy and she does your work for you, when u have a ?; but overall she's not a joke, its just that shes more interested in her company now.

Worst design teacher at csun. criticizes work without saying what's wrong with it or how it could be better. doesn't teach, just assigns projects and does nothing to help you learn from it. her idea of helping you is sitting at your computer doing it for you. wont like anything you do even after taking her advice and make 10 revisions. HORRIBLE.

She is a very good instructor, from real professional world, very helpful. Her assignments for Graphic Design II are great. it's not just another "whatever" projects, they are portfolio pieces.

The critiques take up 75% of class and when it's finally time to work, she disappears so you can't ask questions. Apparently she does not feel the need to respond to emails either. Not helpful and not very nice.

she's an interesting teacher. when you talk to her personally she's very nice and has a lot to say about the business, but as a teacher... well as a teacher she has very high cocky moments, where she's beyond perfection. i recommend her to an extent although she may drive you nuts that's how it is in the real world.

I put up with her class for two weeks before getting fed up and dropping it. Already two weeks into the semester and all we got to do was "show & tell" and make collages out of magazine cut-outs (i.e. - like in Kindergarten). "Computer Graphics", my @$$!

She's easy, but didn't learn much. Not many projects were portfolio material. Wasn't too motivated with this class.

She is the most unprofessional instructor I had at CSUN. She might be a good designer herself but has absolutely no right to teach. She never teaches the programs, just assumes you know everything. Her critiques are more hurtful than helpful.
