"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.

"Tough Grader" "Get ready to read"

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

ENG111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.

ENG 111 D83B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I am regretting not knowing about this site before taking this instructor. I had early warning for example when she says the first day "I am not here to teach you, just review what you already know." She avoids answering questions directly. Very degrading and and constantly on the defense. Mkes the class very tense throughout the session.

If you like a scavenger hunt, she would be the best teacher for you. She uses other university websites as insturctional material, instead of teaching.

Do yourself a favor and take all the reviews here to heart; they are all true. Worst class I've ever attended. Her lectures are just sitting in class listening to her talk off the top of her head. Her teaching is very poorly structured. No transparency with her grading. Trying to understand how you were graded on a paper is a total mystery.

I honestly don't know whether she wants me to pass or not. I am a poor writer, and this class has not helped me at all. I have less confidence now than when I started the class.

I took Ms. Richardson for online English 111, this was my first college class ever and I left with a very bad taste. Don't expect any leniency for emergencies, she won't care. Not a great teacher at all.
