English 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A-

She is amazing. I'm really bad with English but she cares a lot about you in order to become a better writer. If you want to have fun, take her class. NO FINALS! :D and her homework assignments are piece of cake. Seemed easier than High School English class. :) STRONGLY RECCOMMENDED :)She became one of my favorite professors at CSUF!

ENG 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She was so nice and funny! Her class is so easy. The only thing that sucks is the fact that you only use the textbooks for the first two weeks but other than that she is great!

ENG 303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Sawicki is awesome. If you had a hard time with the class it's because you ditched. Intense grammar class but easy to grasp and understand if you just do the work. Her workbook gives you hundreds of exercises that are structured exactly like the test. Just do the work and get the A. She even texted me when i was late to a midterm. Cool lady

ENG303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

So incredibly frustrating and tough. This class was really, really difficult. Very "prescriptive" in approach to grammar with grammar trees etc that are very hard for a "whole language" kid to learn. And on top of this she provides very little support. Not great.

Ling. 305 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I barely passed this class and I hated every moment of it. Her lectures are not very helpful. You pretty much just have to do all the reading and hope that you remember stuff for the exams. I'm just glad it's all over.

The class is ok. The teacher is ok. If I were to rate a large number of the classmates, they would fail. All they did was whine about non-existent difficulty.

Not an easy course. It's hard to call Sawicki a bad professor because she isn't; she does care & is very passionate about the subject. It seems that she doesn't exactly know how to lead a diverse class. Expects everyone to know what she does and isn't good at answers questions or helping those that fall behind. Regardless, very nice & funny lady.

ENGL303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I don't like calling professors bad educators but there is no other way to put it for Sawicki. She is passionate about her subject but this makes her fly through the material and not wait for students who are behind. She is very intimidating due to her passion; she makes the students feel dumb. I basically have to teach myself. Don't take her!

ENGL301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

In my opinion she did a great work in teaching Advance College Writing Class. Her advice in Grammar, Sentence Structure and Essay Composition made me to understand the importance of this class. I tried to do a correct presentation of my taught to the specific type of essay, being original and creative. She always appreciated that.

ENG305 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Definitely tough. I was never able to pass her class. I was super intimidated by her passion for English Grammar and could hardly participate in class because of that. I could tell that she cared about students' progression though. She offered time to help us during her office hours, but as mention before she seemed a bit annoyed :(

Stay away if possible! She comes up with extremely stupid work for the class. Everyone is always left looking at one another and thinking wtf? To make it worse she is not helpful at her office hours. She seemed annoyed, and rushed to get me out of there. This class is a complete drag, & this teacher does NOT know how to teach.

Don't take her class unless you already know how to write professionally. You basically learn how to write on your own.

ENG305 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Perhaps the only class I had to study for at CSUF. She's tuff but if you put an effort in you will pass. tips: First exam do all the example in red book, that will be 70% of exam. 2nd exam study her lecture notes. Read and go to class!

The class had poor structure. She never posted any grades for assignments, only for our essays. She did not have lectures to teach in class, she pulled things out of the air to teach about. would NOT suggest this teacher.

Sawicki is an excellent teacher and an even better person. There was nothing about the course I didn't enjoy, and stopping by office hours always cheered me up. She's fab enough I took 305 with her as well.

I don't know how so many people dislike this professor. Although she can come off a bit conceited, she means well. Her essays were a lot of fun. If you go to her office hours with your paper your almost guaranteed and A by following her suggestions. Discussions were great and overall a fun class
