Tufts University: Leslie Lawrence - English - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
I really enjoyed this professor and her class. In terms of writing, the articles and supplements she provided helped significantly improve my writing ability. I was quite astounded to see that some other people disliked her so much. I would have never expected to read such harsh reviews by a professor who cares as much about her students and Professor Lawrence does. At the beginning she requested that we write an introductory essay, as many professors do, that spoke of challenges/difficulties we've experienced in the past with writing. One of my favorite aspects of Leslie Lawrence's approach was that she tailored her critique and suggestions so that it helped me to improve the areas that I believed could use the most help--and it worked! I am a MUCH stronger writer and have seen my grades go up consistently by an entire letter grade. Additionally, I thought her choice of books was fabulous. One of the books that we were required to read at the end of the semester, Stone Butch Blues, was an incredible work. All in all, I think Leslie Lawrence is a fabulous, supportive teacher and I would confidently recommend her to other students.

She gave a fairly regular work load. For an English class. As one student noted, she did have a tendency to send a lot of emails, however because of her consistent communication I always knew what was expected of me and I appreciated that.
