"Tests? Not many" "There for you"

She is a very lady, and her class is extremely easy. There were never any tests or homework assignments. You don't really have to listen to what she talks about, as it is not extremely important. There are extra credit opportunities, and you have the option to revise all work.

CWP101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is just about the cutest woman in the world! she laughs at her own jokes and is always happy. All her papers are very easy and if you do bad, you can fix it. She tells you exactly what to fix and she even marks where it needs to be fixed. she is picky but it will help you in the long run. It is impossible to fail this class. I recommend it!

She is a great teacher, I love her. If you visit her during her office hours she will be a great help. She is a tough grader, but in the end you will become a better writer. I promise you that.

CWP101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Was kind to me, but I heard otherwise from other students. Had a problem appearing to SCHEDULED meetings/portfolio pick-ups on time. I had to reschedule a meeting once with her, and she abandoned us during finals week, with no notice that she was leaving. Hard grader. Need a lot of patience to take this class!

Very hard grader. I've talked to my friends and she's the hardest grader for CWP. She told me to get a tutor for my sentence structure and the tutor thought I was nuts coming to him because there was no problem.

She is legally blind, so she uses a reader and a magnifying device when grading assignments. Although they do come back slowly, her feedback is solid. With the ability to revise twice, the focus is on being a better writer, not a higher grade. And if the two revisions weren't enough there was extra credit! Highly recommended!

awesome person. she is blind, so you get papers back slowly. a little monotonous, but she helps you become a better writer. lets you revise up to 3 times. you have to hand in everything to pass, so don't forget assignments!

I did all of the work in her class and got a 2.99 because she thought that i didn't try hard enough and I failed because you need a 3.0 to pass ENG 102. I got an E and i'm taking it this summer. Avoid her

She's a great teacher. Probably one of my favorites! She's blind so it takes a while to get your paper back but she wants you to pass so just work with her!
