Quarter: Fall 2016
Grade: B+
Dec. 26, 2016

This review is actually for ENG CCOMP 2 which I took with professor Galvin. Her classes are boring and unengaging. Though I must say that the topics discussed in class are actually rather interesting. Professor Galvin has this special ability to lag, like a computer under a virus-attack. She possesses only one type of hear and it is slow, slow slow. Her processing is so slow and as a result, she mumbles unclear information in fragments and pieces, which makes the ambiguous information being presented even more confusing for us. Members of the class always have to whisper among ourselves to piece together the disintegrated information we may have, but that does not seem to work as well. Her classes are slow paced but relaxing. Though I cannot say I enjoyed this class, the class was reasonably easy and Professor is fair on work set.

Overall, the class was quite boring in my opinion. English is one of my least favorite subjects so that explains it. There are short readings (around 15 pages, sometimes less) for every class. In class, we would separate into groups and discuss the readings with our groups and then with the class. She then would go over language and structure to improve the writings and eliminate some common mistakes. There are three essays (around 1200 words each) in the quarter. First drafts are graded pretty generously(9.5 or 10 out of 10). Then you can choose two out of the three topics to submit revisions for, which you can get an A for if you take her advice from the first draft and conferences. There is also a group presentation and a final portfolio due at week 10, both of which she graded generously in my opinion. It was not a fun class for me, but it surely was an easy A.

I had Professor Galvin for my fall quarter and enjoyed her class overall. Our topic was revolved around college/college lifestyle/admissions/fraternities,etc. and I found it quite interesting especially the readings/podcasts she assigned. The workload was not heavy at all, readings assigned for every class but not long at all and fairly interesting. In class, she would have us split into groups to discuss the readings and share with the class. Usually she would work on grammar/english writing structure afterward which I felt like we needed a couple more exercises to strengthen our writing. She was very open and helpful in office hours/conferences which she has. We meet with her at least 3 times a quarter to discuss each essay we wrote. You are graded on self-improvement and not how you write compared to your class. You have 3 essays, a couple drafts and a final portfolio which she offers help for all essays if you are willing to meet her. Great professor in my opinion. Some may complain about their final grade but if you really want an A, go to her office hours, go to the undergraduate writing center or ask a couple friends to help you with your revisions. It's definitely possible and I enjoyed this class a ton.

Quarter: Fall 2016
Grade: B
Jan. 12, 2017

I tried very hard on my essays and she would hold office hours to go to her to review your essay before you submit it but honestly she was never really helpful or straight forward. She also gave the assignments on such short notice. This class was extremely boring that I was nearly going to kill myself.

I worked really hard on my final drafts and still received a B in both corrections. The class overall is not difficult and she tries to help with small grammar problems. The class is often separated into groups which helps you meet new people and the final project is a group project, which sucks if you are the only one putting in work. Overall she was really nice and I would recommend her class, just make sure you work extra hard on your final drafts!
