Eng 1101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Very Helpful. Extremely Fair as long as you follow directions. If you don't follow directions your grade will reflect that. She even allows you to turn in work late with a small point deduction. Would definitely take her again.

ENG335 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This teacher is TERRIBLE! She won't tell you exactly what you did wrong and fails you if you don't get her essay exactly right, which is impossible considering she just keeps changing the directions if she doesn't like you! I'll never take her class again and you wouldn't either unless you feel like fighting with a teacher! Ugh!

I took her online and it was a huge mistake. She's cold, extremely disorganized and very hard to get in touch with. I ended up getting an A, but there was nothing enjoyable about the class.

english 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Lynne Rosenthal is a mean lady who lacks interest in her own field. Prof. Rosenthal has her own unique outline for essays and expects you to understand it without her explanation of it. She offer very little direction I observed her partiality when grading individuals in class. She often uses fear and intimidation on her students.

ENG111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The key to her class is to be invisible. Go to her class do not to participate if she calls on you answer. Do what she says do not talk back to her because she does not help anyone. Avoid her if you can but if you have to take her just do what she says and don't ask questions. I got an A- in her class.

ENGL 111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

if you are registering for an english class, please don't choose this professor, she is highly uncooperative with students, rude, and belligerent. she grades pretty hard and insist on you following her structure, and even when you do you still receive low grades on your work. please avoid taking her class. there is a possibility you might fail.

Eng112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very bad teacher and maybe a little off too. Had her for an online English 112 class just this Fall and basically taught an online poetry class instead of an English. We did nothing but poetry the whole semester and that was strang within itself. Also is a perfectionist and wants everything to a certain way or else you will fail. AVOIDDD PLEASE !!

Lynn Rosenthal is a horrible instructor she does not clearly communicate with students in this course. If you have to take her online forget it. If you want to keep your GPA up avoid this instructor.

ENGL202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is completely useless. She is an english teacher that is teaching a business course - doesn't make sense. She has zero interest in the class and was not at all flexible. All she did was assigned text reading and exercise from the text. Mercy College needs to be more selective about their faculty staff. I learned absolutely nothing from her.

The worst Teacher I have ever had. I can not believe that she is the head of the department. Her idea of teaching is telling everyone to get into groups on discussions. Then, when it comes time to write a paper she fails everyone.

Lynn Rosenthal is a horrible teacher indeed. She is unhelpful and if you take a class online with her she is very unhelpful and she gives a lot of work. Her class was not organized well at all.

ENG112Online Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Online class was confusing. Deviated from syllabus often without clarifying dates and expectations. Communication was sketchy and email wasn't clear. Didn't use all of the books bought. Wouldn't recommend her, although I did get a "B".
