"Participation matters" "Get ready to read" "Tough Grader"

If you are only taking one other class and want to work hard for your grade then take LaPointe. If you have multiple classes you will be working very hard just to pass her class. She is consistently late, but won't forgive you if you are late even if you have an excuse. She isn't consistent in what she wants from your paper either. Turn back now.

"Assignments galore" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader"

This teacher is a maniac. She is inconsistent and really rude. This class is insanely difficult and she will even advertise in the beginning of the semester that the class may need to be taken again. Showing up and doing all the assignments DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU WILL PASS. Do not be fooled.

Do the homework, write honestly and sincerily and you'll do alright. She's bad with you showing up late and if your too late.

I really appreciated Prof. Lapointe. She had phenomenal feedback. She has a really good BS filter... so don't try to BS her and you will do fine. Show up, care about your work and you'll do fine.

0490 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

If you're late she makes you stand outside for 20 minutes or longer for a class you're paying for! Her hand writing is illegible on the papers she gives back to you, so you don't know what she wants. We once spent the whole class listening to music on YouTube. She does not teach you anything new. She did not help me improve my writing skills.

You have to do the work and show up for class or you will get behind on assignments. Comp I is a college level class, if you have a difficult time with grammar and spelling it may be harder for you. She handwrites corrections on your papers that may be hard to read but ask her questions and she will help you. No tests but lots of writing.

I think Mrs. LaPointe is a very good professor, I took her comp 1, and 2 if you did not know how to write before her class, you will when the semester is over,I had a tough time, but I can write 100% better.Take her if you want to learn.She do not give you a grade you earn your graded.I found professor LaPointe to be very helpful,understanding.

ENC 1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: WD

Terrible, Horrible, personality. Refuses to help when you ask. Treats most students with total contempt and disrespect. Intentionally goes out her way to let you know how worthless you are if you don't meet her idea of someone she likes. Very unprofessional, unaccommodating in any kind of way and totally none consistent about work review.

Mrs LaPointe is my favorite teacher at SPC. Her classes stress me out but they push me to do my absolute best. She's extremely helpful and cares about her students (the ones that actually care about her grade). This is my second time in one of her classes. I'll be sure to sign up for a third.

Super confusing. She would tell me she liked something, and the next that she hated it. Good instructor, she just stressed me out so much.

Very unorganized. Got homework from the first week back in the 10th week of class. She bases the grade off 2 essays and a timed writing. Essays have to be completely revised perfectly for an A and she didn't give back my last essays to revise until there was 1 class left. Save yourself the stress and don't take this course.

ENC1102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

While she's not nasty, she is very disorganized and unclear. My biggest problem was her scribbled cursive handwriting and refusal to decipher it without an appointment in her office. She often doesn't show for her office appointments, which is frustrating. For students with cars and nothing else going on in their lives, she'd be okay for you.

She will make you work, if you're looking for an easy writing class this is not it. I learned so much about writing and keeping it formal. I think what I learned from this class was worth all the work.

Good instructor if you need help, don't bother emailing. Call or knock on her door. Writing assignment weren't bad, just wasn't interested. Said I was a good writer, good structure, glad to have me in her class. Keep everything she assigns, don't miss classes, and don't be afraid to ask for clarification.

LaPointe is an awesome teacher. People really just are lazy and don't do her work. She gives such easy hw's just do them. People say she's so mean but she really isn't. She has a very sarcastic sense of humor and she really keeps the class fun. To pass her class all you have to do is actually try. It's an amazing class.

Trust me, she's not nearly as bad as many students say she is. Get on her good side, get to class on time, do the homework, and listen to her when she's given the directions for the papers. If you do, you'll do just fine. She's a good teacher and very passionate about what she does. Take her if you want to learn how to write

I found it interesting that some people gave her such cruel comments. I have taken her for two seperate classes and I have no complaints. If you are the tyoe to want to just ease your way through a call it wont happen. Hard work will pay off. take the challenge. Yes you get homework and you must do many revisions but thats college!! she is great.

I recommend her to anyone that isn't going to cry when they have to do some writing. She helped make it clear to me that writing is something I love. She is very down to earth and makes you want to show up to class. My favorite Professor by far.
