Great teacher! Her interest in real world issues made class enjoyable all around. Fair grader and will always help if confusion arises. If you really put effort into writing her papers she will support and definitely reward your triumph. Got an A and worked for it! This is the first English class I can say I learned to become a better writer!

ENG 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

She was a terrible teacher. If you weren't a vegetarian, she hated you and it was reflected in her grades. There was no information being taught in this class at all.

EGL117 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class is pretty easy if you show up. The professor is super chill and funny. She's young and talks a lot. Some class days are pointless but if you show up, she pretty much gives you all the answers you need for the assignments/tests. It can get boring but it's an easy A.

Yes, she does talk about India a lot. I also had a problem with HER opinion being more important than the students' (but it alleviated). She is an easy grader and understandable. If you take her in an honors course, she expects a lot. It is possible to handle the workload, so don't worry.

she is a horrible teacher.Has no teaching skills at all, and often likes to pick on students. From day one she judges you as a student and will treat you differently. Class is boring. I learned more in 5th grade grammar class.

So easy! Muduri is hilarious. And She never talks about india so I don't understnad what all those kids were complaining about. Easy A! 4 three page essays two of which are from your presentations and the other two are just responses. Seriously Easy A. And you'll enjoy yourself, she has a great sense of humor.

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

I've been a poet for several years, but this teacher's thoughts on current poetry only got me off on a bad note with her. She said she has no real interest in any poetry that was written over the past 50 years. Also, she doesn't write poetry and her intro to poetry class has nothing to do with writing it. DO NOT TAKE, I am happy with my W.

She is one of the most clueless people on staff. DO NOT take her poetry class!The first thing she says is that she doesn't write any poetry, she only reads it. That is like trying to learn how to fly from some one that doesn't fly but rides in planes alot. What!? Don't waste you time.

EGL129 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Madhuri is a great teacher and she knows her stuff. anyone who would rate her poorly because she's passionate about where she's from needs a reality check. her classes were always interesting and engaging and her assignments are thought provoking. she does not assign busy work, but she does expect that students walk into class prepared.

She has a lot of personal issues and comes across hating everyone. I did not find her a good teacher. Take Amy Blumenthal, she rocks. I got tired of her talking about India all the time. I thought this class was an English class, not a social studies class on India?

EGLFICT Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She explained to us that she use to be hard not i think she's not as tough anymore. She does love to talk about india but i liked it, i actually learned about the culture and just life experiences. She gave us quizzes but they are straight forward and she stopped after a while. Her degree is on Black literature and thats most of the subject. Cutie

egl101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This was a comp class, and I didn't really learn anything about comp. I learned some other things, I guess -- for example, a lot about India. There was maybe ONE lesson on grammar... There were a few "workshops" that no one showed up to half the time. I wouldn't take her again. Not 'cuz she's hard, just 'cuz she's not that good of a teacher.
