    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Kayla seems like a tough teacher at first, but as the quarter progresses, her hardboiled exterior will give way to a kind heart. If you are struggling, she will be glad to help you, and she genuinely wants you to have a good grade.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much more than I thought I would in English 101. Instead of going the conventional way of grammar, revision, etc., Kayla taught us how to back up our arguments and convey meaning clearly and concisely.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are worried about grammar/spelling, use the Writing Center. Kayla is less concerned with technical details than with how much sense your argument(s) make, so know your stuff!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very helpful, we learn how to write essays using APA and MLA format. Ms. Parsons teaches very well and explains a lot of interesting concepts.

    The best thing that I learned was how to do deep research and to write in depth in my essays using APA or MLA.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask Ms.Parsons questions and make sure you check over your essay with you because she gives very good feedback.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an amazing teacher. He is really personable and his stories are great. He is old and has many years of experience perfecting his teaching style and I think it has really paid off.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how to properly use grammar, what is needed in different kinds of essays, and we analyzed a lot of written pieces. Some of the class discussions were also very thought provoking which made it much more interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just go to class and do the homework. If you do the work, it is really easy. Participating in the discussions gets you on his good side and if you do participate, you are more likely to really learn and understand what is happening.
