Comment:
She is one of the best English teachers! Her class is only hard if you don't know how to write. She doesn't accept bad papers and will call you out for it, but it's only to push you to do better. She is always late to class but to be fair, you don't actually want to be there for the whole time. She is very passionate about her career.

Comment:
Worst Professor or i dont even know if i can even call her a professor after this repulsive semester with her, she would talk 10 mins about a book but then the rest of the class just tell other students how bad they write or brags on how she cant get fired because shes been working there more than 10 years. Do yourself a favor, dont take her.

Comment:
She is actually the worst professor I have ever had across my entire academic career. I did well in the class, but please do yourself a favor and do not take her class. Shes really condescending and always 5-15 minutes late to class. The class was literally 5 minutes talking about a book then 45 minutes of her arguing with students.

Comment:
Professor Kushner was difficult ONLY if you don't know how to write. IF you know how to write, her feedback on papers will suffice. If you need help then spend extra time with her and ask direct questions. She can be extremely helpful. I took ENG102 with her and had gotten an A- and she loved me mostly because I took extra time to talk with her.

Makes you buy the books but you essentially teach yourself. You walk in and end up hearing random tangents. Will tell you to write a 5 page paper with NO PROMPT and then tell you how you didnt give what she wanted.

Comment:
She treated our English class like we were in a class for politics. She would always talk about politics when it had nothing to do with the topic we were talking about. don't be surprised if she is 20 minutes late because that was almost everyday. and when she edits your essay, she doesn't look past your intro for an essay.

Comment:
She's a great professor and very knowledgeable about her field. She is willing to challenge and weed out students who cause a ruckus. She's very willing to help you if you need it and is accessible outside of class given she isn't teaching through email or her office. One negative is she doesn't use BlackBoard. Get ready to read and write.

In my experience, I find that if you do your readings, write the papers as directed (or ask questions if you're unsure about how to write something) and generally show interest and initiative, the class will go relatively easily for you. If you don't care to do the work, you can expect the same level of care in return from her.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had the experience of being in Professor Kushner's class. She was informative and entertaining. I learned to write a better paper. I attribute my success this summer at the Vassar ET transfer program to the instruction that I received from Professor Kushner.

She is very professional teacher. I am second language student and she encourage me to read and write more and i did very good in her class. Was not easy, you need to attend class, not use cell, listen to her and love to write as she ask you to do and you will be fine.

Comment:
Literally the worst professor I've ever had in my college career. I wish I took the advice of these reviews and switched classes when I had the chance. Her lectures are just her ranting about whatever is on her mind that day, and the papers are rarely on anything useful. She was 5-45 minutes late every day and was rude. Do NOT take her if you can.

Carol Kushner has a wide base of knowledge, and so brings a lot of new meaning to the class. I loved her a lot. She wanted me to have the best experience possible. When I was having a hard time, she asked if I was OK, and that meant a lot to me.

She was a great professor when I took her classes. She really pushed me to get the best grade possible, and I am thankful for that. She helped me get a few of my short stories published and gave me a letter of recommendation to finish my undergrad at a local college. She is a professor that I will not forget.

Hoo boy! Where to begin? Let me just say, Dutchess has a wide variety of great professors, but she is NOT one of them. She's late every single day and never lets you out on time. She gets angry easily, and is incredibly snobbish and condescending. She grades your papers based not on your arguments, but simply on whether she agrees with your thesis.
