Comment: She was definitely my worst teacher all semester. Discussions were completely awkward because she was not able to open up to the class: we would end up sitting in silence for long periods of time. As for grading, she had a very odd and inefficient way of getting her message across. When you received your first draft of your paper back it would have many positive comments and some small things to work on; yet, when it came to your final draft, the grade would be a lot lower than expected. She never fully tells you what exactly she wants or is thinking, which does not help when it comes to receiving a good grade.

Comment: Her teaching manner is very awkward. She's not the type to open up in class (like the cool GSI's who act friendly and chatty) to get everyone involved in a discussion. It's obvious that she knows a lot about the literature that we read, but she's not good at conveying what she knows to us. During office hours, you really have to show up armed with specific details in order to get helpful feedback on your work. I think she is very knowledgeable, but a little too reserved to properly engage us in class.

Comment: interesting lecturer, but her essay help isn't so great. she will say all these things you did well, and not really mention anything to work on, and then give you a low B when you turn in the final draft.
