Tufts University: FR022 - Composition and Conversation II - French - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Eglal Henein | FR022 - Composition and Conversation II | French2005-03-22

Review:
I expected a lot from this teacher after hearing so much good stuff about her. And I was unbelievably let down. After taking French in high school, I hated this class. We spent way too much time on grammar, WAY too much. We read two books, but didn't spend any time on discussing them, but discussing the grammar in them instead. Totally useless. Also, we read "The student's guide to Paris" in the beginning of the semester, which was probably the worst and most useless book you can read in French class, since all it talked about was the places in Paris that a student needs and their address and phone #.

Workload:
Midterm, Final, 5 papers, 3 Presentations. A lot of work. Really not worth it to tell you the truth. Don't take this class with Eglal if you can avoid it. Although, she is great person, her teaching methods are not understandable to an experienced French student.

Eglal Henein | FR022 - Composition and Conversation II | French2005-03-20

Review:
Eglal is an excellent teacher- very enthusiastic about both the French language and about making sure students understand the material. What other teacher invites her students to dinner at her house? Has office hours often and always willing to help. She does emphasize research in papers and presentations, so be prepared to spend some time in the library, but in general she is a fair grader.

Workload:
Reading was pretty interesting, and there was an average amount of work for French 22.

Eglal Henein | FR022 - Composition and Conversation II | French2004-10-26

Review:
As a French major, I can tell you that Eglal is by far the best teacher in the department (that I have had to date). While her classes aren't the easiest, she grades fairly and has more concern for student comprehension and progress than any teacher I've had at Tufts, period. If you have any trouble or just want some advice, Eglal always makes herself available. The students are truly her priority; she even has her class over for dinner at her house. Eglal is very knowledgeable and she's also a native French speaker which is always a plus. Don't miss out on taking a course with her.

Workload:
One thing I like about Eglal's courses is they never have finals, just papers and the papers tend not to exceed 3-4 pages.

Annie Geoghegan | FR022 - Composition and Conversation II | French2004-10-10

Review:
This professor was possibly the worst I had at Tufts. She's the reason that I didn't take French my second semester. She had obvious favorites in the class, she didn't really care about our progress, her lectures weren't especially clear.
I wouldn't advise anyone to take a class with this professor.

Workload:
I'd say workload was about the same as other French classes.

Annie Geoghegan | FR022 - Composition and Conversation II | French2004-07-11

Review:
I agree with the first review of Geoghegan. She was very rude to people with opposing opinions, and very high-strung. I also found that when I would write a paper with my opposing opinion, I would get a B, but when I would write a paper with what I thought she would like to hear, I would receive an A or A-. This is despite the fact that I would put more time and effort into papers that expressed my personal opinion. Overall, in my opinion, a terrible teacher.

Workload:
The workload was slightly beyond the average workload at Tufts. I enjoyed the majority of the readings. They were often political in nature.
