Tiffany Alkan

Apr 2004

Tiffany is a great instructor. Although a lot of students think University Writing is a pain in the neck, getting through it with Ms. Alkan is OK. She is a very fair grader, and I really feel like I learned a lot about my personal writing style and bad habits, and how to improve them. Ms. Alkan always made time to be available to talk about papers and concerns, and I found this to be extremely beneficial, especially for re-drafting papers. She can be picky on the first drafts, but after getting over your ego and realizing that your paper really DOES need some work, incorporating her comments really do make a better paper, and you will be a better and more conscientious writer for it. Ms. Alkan is cool and personable, and seems to enjoy interacting with her students. I definitely recommend her class.
