Had a very enjoyable semester with Dr. Carothers. You'll do well if you show up, do your work, turn it in on time, and write in proper English like a respectable person. She is very thorough when explaining assignments, and is good about offering help/answering any questions after class, or during her conference time. Would definitely recommend.

Engl 1301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B-

Grades based on her favorite writing styles! Grades harshly if your a good writer or not! She talks very monotone and makes the class drag! Worst part she takes almost a month to grade papers!

ENGL 1301 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She grades really hard. She carries on and on and on to where you forget what she is even talking about. We wrote a lot of essays, but mostly 5 paragraph essays. Some people like her and some don't.

I loved Dr Carothers. She was the best professor ever!! I wish her the very best in life she helped me become a better writer. Remember people this is a college class so act like a college student and don't expect nothing less. If you don't like it go back to high school or go to the military. Sorry, but I worked hard for my degree.

Comp 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She did grade essay's based on her style of choice, whether or not you were a good writer. Missed a few classes here and there and ended up with a C. If you read your textbook religiously and listen to her speak, which was awful because you'd have the tendency to fall asleep then you may have a chance at a B or A.

Dr. Carothers is a very good instructor. Althouh she may get off topic in class at times, her classes are always pretty interesting and helpful to her students. Her assignments were never overbering or too difficult and overall, her class was a pleasure to take.

I'm an English Major so I found the essays in this class to be quite easy. She's a very kind and easy-going teacher. Very understanding. Her efforts to be involved with the class is funny at times. This is a great and relaxing class and I find her grading style not that strict. In fact, I think this whole class is very easy-going as a whole.

ENG1302 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I understand this is college but geez this isn't a Harvard Perfectionist Program! She grades UTTERLY HARD! I'm doing horrible in her class and when I looked at the grade-book, only 3 people out of 20 where passing! I do not recommend this teacher. I had an A+ with my previous English teacher. Enough said! She's nice but it doesn't cut it gradewise

ENG203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

As a high grade student, this teacher grades ridiculously hard. The way you type your paper has to be in her "favor of style." I would not recommend this teacher at all due to extreme hard grading. Pick another teacher other than this one. Seriously, I literally do my best in the class. Apparently she is a doctor in english. Go figure.

She is a very good teacher in my opinion. She makes you think a lot and views things from a different perspective. There are a lot of essays, but it IS an English class and thats what it mainly encompasses. Do your part and you will be successful in this class.

If you are looking for an easy class turn away now. She will work you hard and expect a lot, but if you are open minded and attentive she can change your world view. Great teacher, but you have to do your part.

I don't recommend her. Very strange and boring. Picky, and when asked to elaborate on anything she got grouchy.

Never take her class... she expects for you to know everything. We are in that class for a reason, so we can learn.

HARD ESSAYS GIVEN!!!! very pickey about your grade. she dosn't tell you the whole truth about your grade. but she is willing to help. Be prepared for boring stories, a movie with nudity, (which was offensive) and don't "clack" on your computers.
