"Participation matters" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader"

You are going to spend more time signing documentation that she uses to protect herself from complaints than doing actual work. Grades so harshly that it's unreasonable. Doesn't offer feedback. She goes on rants about the "entitlement" of students and young people from time to time. It's pretty clear she's given up. She needs to retire.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader" "Get ready to read"

If you ask a question she laughs and makes you feel stupid! She treats you like a child and grades unfairly, almost as if she picks a random # for your grade. She gives no feedback on papers! All she cares about is the check! DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS! TCC NEEDS TO TERMINATE HER CONTRACT ASAP! If I could rate her zero I would! She shouldnt be teaching!

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

Lets start off with this, If you value your GPA at all DO NOT take this class!! I took her for African American Studies this semester and it was the biggest mistake i could have ever made. She is extremely rude to her students, and belittles any and all who ask questions. I have a lot more to say but don't have enough space. YOU SEE HER.. RUN!

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader" "Participation matters"

Worst class I have ever taken. My entire class needs to retake ENG 111 because she is the toughest grader. Doesn't answer questions with enough clarity, never seems to care whether or not youre struggling in her class. Its just a paycheck to her and she doesnt really care about you at all. Tcc needs to do something about her.

"Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters"

TCC has got to do something about this instructor. Almost every student has been to the dean to review her and get help. She is heartless, shows no sign of help, has no will to help students pass, and her grading is just down right ridiculous. I have yet to have a passing grade for an essay & no hope is showing in the future. DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS

"Tough Grader"

Vague in explaining assignments, horrible feedback on assignments, crazy grading. Participation matters but it is very difficult and uncomfortable to do so, the air is usually thick. She doesn't teachlecture , it is as though this is below her. I wished I knew about this site before I took her class. This is clearly just a paycheck to her

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Tough Grader" "Participation matters"

I took Ms. Richardson hoping for an easy A in Eng 111, which I did not receive. The class is hard and she is very unclear. I took almost all of my essays to her for review before I turned them in, and I would still receive grades of 70-78 %. (Many times I would have the highest grade in the class.) I would not recommend this class.

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read" "Tough Grader"

She keeps all the original papers you write, but gives you copies. The previous teachers I had gave back the originals. She has you sign a documentation that you have received the copies of your papers and assignments. She is picky about the paper you use for some reason the paper has to be 8.5 by 11" which is not in the requirements.

"Tough Grader"

She's rude, sarcastic and horrible with feedback. She'll make you feel stupid for asking a question but then expects you to be confident when asking. Really hard grader. If you don't write to the very edge of the page, she doesn't consider it a full page.

"Get ready to read" "Tough Grader"

Mean and rude. You can't ask a question without feeling stupid for asking it. SHe wants you to be confident in your answers but questions you on every answer you give. Regret taking her class 100.

English112 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: D

It was difficult to ask questions without feeling the instructor would penalize my actions. After requesting to meet with the instructor, time and effort went void because she applied that college level students should be able to figure things out on their own.

The following is strictly my own subjective opinion of the professor: If William Shakespeare came back from the dead and took this class, he would receive a low grade. I don't care how good your writing skills are. If you take this class, you will receive a low grade. If you even pass this class that would be a great miracle.

Be ready to teach yourself. Read and take notes from the textbook outside of class, so you can ask questions, otherwise, you'll be lost. Her grading is tough, and I think a little too extreme.

This professor is extremely hard and you need to be ready to teach yourself my best advise is to show up to her class on time and also try best on your paper. Nobody in my class got a C or higher in her class. I received a D in her class I was perfectly happy with that

By far the WORST teacher I have ever had. Very vague in explaining assignments- I even came to her to discuss a paper with her for 40 minutes and she left me even more confused. During that same discussion, I aksed about my grade and she was of no help. She ALSO failed to make it available on Blackboard for our class to submit our FINAL EXAM!!

This woman has a heart of stone with ice water pumping through her veins. Bitter towards the students, made one girl cry, purposely doesn't answer questions, grades way too strictly considering she doesn't teach us ANYTHING. One of our in class assignments: make a list of the qualities a genuine person holds, then read them out loud. what???

I wish I had read these comments before I signed up for her class because after reading all of them; except for one who rated her fair, I can relate. One issue is If you ask her for help its useless she specifically says I can't help you.
