COM 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A-

Tinker Ready made my writing 200% better. She tells you exactly what you need to work on and she works with you on it for the entire semester. She is very down to earth. One of the best professors I've ever had. I wish I could have her again! She really made COM 201 one of the best experiences I've had at BU. Thanks, Professor Ready!

Don't be put off by her blunt comments. Tinker wants you to succeed. If you heed her comments your grade will reflect it. The textbook assignments are busy work--but they end up being helpful from time to time. Overall it's a good class.

onlinb1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Tinker has such a great sense of humor, she managed to make this very technical class the highlight of my week... She is also super straightforward: If she says 'do A' and you do, an A is what you will get. Also, she considers revising your grade as seriously as you consider making good on those revisions. She prioritizes learning and CARES.

COM201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Great professor! Her comments on the drafts are really helpful. If you follow her advice you can get the A. She is open to working with her students. She has been around the block with her journalism career. Her stories about her experiences were helpful. Made the 8am class worth waking up for. She is pretty funny.

Awesome teacher. The class itself sucks, but she makes it great. Attendance is mandatory, but I liked going to it & I had it at 8am. She is very helpful & clear, you'll know exactly what you need to fix in your drafts. She makes the class fun. She's very funny w/out even realizing it. Take her; you'll hate the class w/ any other professor.

CO201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Easily sidetracked but it's not a good thing. Very self-involved, you can't go one class without hearing about her personal life or career. Speaks her mind in comments but it often just comes off as rude and unprofessional. Partly it's a badly designed class, but she certainly made it worse for me. Try to avoid.

COM201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I loved Tinker! I always looked forward to her class every Monday and Wednesday last semester, and miss it even more now that I don't have her. She is funny and helpful, and I feel like I learned a lot from her. Take her for COM 201 if you can!
