Islam (TA)

Hare, James (TA)
Islam (TA)

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I think James is a pretty solid TA but would want to have him as a TA for a Southeast Asian religion class, which is his specialty. He has the qualities of a really good TA - he's approachable, he's attentive in lecture (which makes it easy for us to go over course material in recitation rather than just hearing his point on everything) and he helped us a lot with our papers. However, he didn't know much more about Islam than the rest of us, which could be frustrating at times. Nonetheless, I would be happy if I had him for another class.

Bellamy, Carla (TA)
Islam (TA)

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Carla is very nice and helpful. She seems a bit wrapped up in her studies sometimes and forgets about a larger world around her (i.e., anything away from India). But, she is still great. I had her for my section for Islam, and she helped go through Yavari's lectures well giving us tips and ideas on how to read the dense and looooong readings. She was really avalible for papers and gave good comments. Also, talk in her sections, she likes that.

Workload:

She assigned a quiz once, but it was actually helpful for memorizing dates. She also grades the papers assigned by the professor, and I think was fairly lenient, as long as you put in the effort
