Not as tough as many people here say. I am an international student who came to Canada 2 years ago ans still did well on her course. One should read the textbook carefully - all grading criteria are there.

Comment:
she marks midterms and final EXTREMELY hard. she doesnt give out a criteria of how she marks any of the assignments and exams. She only gives out instructions and minimal feedback. She gives out 2 papers, 1 midterm and 1 final. The difference between my marks of the papers and exams is two letter grade.

Comment:
she is not clear with how she grades papers&exams. her feedback is 2-3sentences long,not much help. I participated & handed my assignments every week on the online moodle& i still received 9/10 without explanations. Luckily, she gave out extra 5% bonus if students did the weekly grammar. only good and useful mark she ever gave to boost marks

Comment:
Bernett does not know how to give clear instruction on what she wants out of her students, and not consistent with her grading system. I would not recommend her to anyone. Not the most helpful instructor you would hope for when it comes to feedback especially as she does not offer adequate feedback to aid in her students.

Feedback that is offered is sparse! No rubics you get what you get because thats what she thinks, no explanations. After taking this online in the fall I have been turned off of english courses. If she asked you to paint a room green: it would be the wrong shade, or she wanted half the room only, but this isn't explained. Tough grader

VERY hard marker. If you are not exceptional at English or are not an English major I recommend you stay away. There wasn't much teaching, just a lot of reading and participation in forum conversations. 2 papers, midterm and final, and you have to read a book every 2 weeks and talk about it in the forum.

I took Bernett's English 1100 in 2003. She marked very hard when it comes to assignments, but she was a generous marker regarding her tests. It goes without saying that she is much more reasonable than Jeninifer Willams as for marking. For your essay, dont use bigcomplex words andor grammar if you are unsure. This way, she won't nail you hard

I have taken EN1100 with Bernett and it was an online class. She marks very hard for midterms even if you do not have that many grammatical errors. She marks very hard on assignments as well. I suggest you take ENG1100 with a different professor

She is very helpful and instructions were straight forward. She's not so hard on marking either. Keep up with the reading and you'll do fine. Ask for help when needed, she usually responds in a timely manner.

Comment:
I took this course last year and I STILL rant about it will my class mates. She teaches you one way of doing things (rather unclearly), and then when answer with the method she taught you she shoots you down. She marks ridiculously hard for a first year english course and does not provide feedback on what you did well, only what you did wrong...

I took her English class online. I worked very hard in this class because she barely teaches. She is a tough marker. Kind, but tough. This is the only time I ever got a C in a class. I'm an A student. I would not take this class again

Bernett is so kind-hearted and very passionate about English! I took 1202 online and she does a great set-up for the course and is very accessible if you ever have any questions. Would highly recommend her!
