    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This professor was very good, serious and loves what she does, she teaches with a passion and is willing to help however she can so don't be afraid to ask for help.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course we're the essays she made us write in the begging about ourselves or an experience we enjoyed or remember. I learned that maybe I didn't hate writing all that much. Another thing I remember was when she made us look for new words everyday so we can learn new vocabulary.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take more time in this course careful read the book she assigns because she will give quizzes and on top of that watch your grammar and spelling... it will go a long way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was an awesome class because it didn't use your typical English textbooks. During my summer course he actually tied it in to sports to make it more interesting. His approach to teaching is very unique and he really gets down to our level. The topic we talk about he will tie into current topics. I thoroughly enjoyed his class.

    Course highlights:

    Writing has never been one of my strong suits. He really taught me how to refine my work. He had limited office hours but when I did get a chance to meet with him he really helped me. I'm very thankful to him.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the reading because he really talks about it in class. It is very obvious if you didn't do your reading. Take advantage of the professor and ask for help. There is no shame in doing so.
