University Writing with Emily was an excellent course. She is an expert in writing (at least compared to me), but is also able to see things from the perspective of the student--the better to explain to us ideas we don't understand. She is not an easy grader, nor an overly difficult one: grades on class essays typically ranged from C to A. She is strict with her in-class rules, but is more relaxed about the content of the course--she essentially allowed the students to write about whatever we wanted, regardless of the technical restrictions established by the department for a given essay. Most important, though, Emily will definitely help you improve your writing. Highly recommended.
