Noémie is just great.
After hearing everyone else's UW experiences, I can confidently say that I was very grateful to have Noémie for UW. She tries her hardest to make the class interesting and relevant to everyone. She holds mandatory one-on-one conferences before you start each progression to discuss your ideas with you. These are extremely helpful and allow you to be right on track with your writing. I NEVER had to rewrite an essay from scratch, because Noémie makes sure your ideas fit into what's expected of you during these conferences. Her grading was very prompt and the feedback she gives is relevant, practical and helpful. I must also add that she has been the only faculty member who I felt cared about me personally and not just on an academic level, which is always great and comforting.
