Comment:
I had Mayer for Brit Lit during the covid crisis. She was already a great prof in person, but online she really showed how compassionate she is towards her students. As a physics major, I felt that she made her class accessible to students of all subjects. She works hard to make sure students succeed. Only complaint: she grades way too easy.

Comment:
Dr Mayer is wonderful. She is very compassionate and very funny. Dr Mayer gives great feedback and I have learned so much from her class. She is very positive and I never left class feeling like it had been a waste. There are a lot of reading assignments, but I have never felt that the assignments were BS. I highly recommend.

Comment:
Dr. Mayer comes off as a great professor who truly seems to be a fun professor to learn from. This all seems true until she returns the bs discussion questions & tests where she nit-picks all the grammatical errors completely avoiding any true substance. She fails to be reasonable and her grading is a direct reflection. Dont take her!

Comment:
Dr. Mayer is an amazing woman. She is an awesome professor, but there is a lot of work associated with the class. There is an assignment for every single class. However, there is never so much work to the point where I feel like I can't get the work done. I would highly recommend her for ENG111, as she will prepare you for college writing.

Dr. Mayer is brilliant, I am so happy that I took her course. She is very nice, easy to talk to, and always there for you. She teaches how to write a specific type of essay (argument, expository, research) by assigning readings that will help you understand how to write a paper that deserves an A. You will learn a lot, you will enjoy her class.

Comment:
Dr. Mayer was one of my biggest inspirations to become an English major. She knows exactly what she's teaching, down to specific, memorized quotes, and she makes class very entertaining and interesting. She even played a clip of Eminem's '8-Mile' during class. Her tests are extremely easy if you take good notes.

Dr. Mayer is enthusiastic about the texts she teaches and makes class really enjoyable. She is a tough but fair grader. Gives plenty of time to write the papers. Feedback clearly defines what she wants you to improve for the next paper. Definitely take any Medieval English courses with her if you can!

Had her for freshman composition and had no complaints. She expects effort and is by no means an "easy professor" but I'd recommend her. She is genuinely interested in helping students become better writers. She knows her stuff and is very lively. Take her for ENG111 if you can because it will definitely help you out in the long run.

Definition of what an English professor should be. Extremely knowledgeable, but not to the point of intimidation. Will go to any length to make topics understandable to students. Pop culture references are amazing, considering she openly admits lacking a television in her home.

Doc Mayor was a great professor. If you're an english major, you need to take HEL. It's a sucky ass class, but that's not her fault...it's the material, not the prof. If you get a chance to take another class with her, do it. You'll thank me.
