Alyson is amazing. She's fun, witty, brilliant, and really passionate about the material. She creates a very comfortable atmosphere in her class, the workload is reasonable, and she is easy to talk to. I HIGHLY recommend her class.

I love this class. Alyson is smart, funny, and the most articulate teacher I've ever had. It's refreshing to have a professor who really cares about her job and wants to engage and challenge every individual student. I HIGHLY recommend this class, even as an elective. You'll be 10X a better writer and critical thinker after two weeks with Alyson.

She is smart. She is funny. But she needs to know that when it comes to writing, not everyone shares the same style as her. Spent way too much time trying to conform to her "style", and she spent too much time in class complaining about our faux pas in writing. Get over it Alyson.

She is great. Really interesting class discussions, really helpful with papers, always willing to meet or email. Class can be a little dry, but it's her sense of humor--kind of deadpan and ironic. Not super high energy but you'll get a lot out of the discussions and she's clearly intelligent.

Very good teacher for what could be a stupid and pointless class. I highly recommend her if you are an English major and have to take this waste-of-time class!

I have only been enrolled in this class for two weeks, but so far Alyson has been awesome. Fosters good class discussions and avoids pretentious dissection of literature---instead the in-class component is stimulating. Helpful with papers, reasonable course load for a literature class...
