    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    As long as you do her essays/paragraphs, get help from the tutors, writing lab, or herself, and read you'll pass! She's clear with what she expects on all assignments. I definitely recommend her, because she makes her classes fun and interesting, and of course you learn something new everyday.

    Course highlights:

    Class is more philosophical rather than composition although grammar counts, but very broad easy topics. She taught me it's important to take my time on my essays and it's necessary to make several drafts to make it perfect.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get reach to read a lot. Discussions are important, and you must complete them. She's very sweet, and has a lot of knowledge. Show her some respect because of this.
