Comment:
She has her own style, but Dr. Tomc should not be underestimated. She has such a wealth of knowledge to share, and she can make the most impenetrable theory seem understandable. If you have a chance to take a class with her, do it. She is an incredibly kind and intelligent individual and I learned so much from her.

This class was great. Very interesting material, and well presented. Some people complained a lot, but I can't relate to it - the only point of confusion for me was about the group presentation. Midterm was actually fun, as we got to take it home and rewrite it as an assignment -- wish I could do that in more classes.

Comment:
Really great reading list, class can sometimes seem a little all-over-the-place, but you can tell she's really interested in the subject (American Noir). Fair marker, if you show as much interest in it as she does you'll do well in the class. Good prof, good books (and movies! you watch movies!), overall great class.

i dont know what everyone is complaining about, she is maybe the easiest marker at UBC, and you do not have to regurgitate what she says, she is open to all interpretations as long as you can back it up. go to class and you're golden

I failed my midterm (worth 25%) due to personal problems and SHE WAS NICE ENOUGH TO OMIT IT. she said that if i did well on my term paper + final exam, she'd omit the midterm. so i ended up getting an A in the course. WOO

Comment:
Dr. Tomc is the best professor I have ever had. It is VERY hard to get an A+ in this class...she rarely gives over 90% unless the work is extraordinary. But you will learn a lot! She is intelligent, well-prepared, passionate about the material, and very approachable. GO TO CLASS, and PARTICIPATE...only way to get a good mark from her.

Overall a pretty good prof. Lectures are clear and straightforward, and midterm/final had no surprises. Just show up to lecture and do the readings, and you will do well. Final assignment was short and fairly easy. Overall I'd recommend this course and professor.

Comment:
She made a topic that could of been really interesting REALLY BORING! She was totally unorganized, and talked about irrelevant information and that was not needed for the final. I was not inspired to come to class because it was a major waste of time and she discussed things that were almost common sense!

Comment:
Ugh. Really boring. Too many movies and not enough reading. Lectures were not very engaging and somewhat disjointed. Madatory attendance. Felt like a waste of time and money!! Not recommended...although I am sure there are worse english profs out there. She was nice, at least. And had low expectations.

Professor Tomc is amazing! She is very knowledgeable about the material and knows exactly what she's talking about. She's endearing in class with her awkwardness, and makes it fun that way. Tomc was a hard marker when it came to the midterm, but the take-home assignment was simple, and if you did all the readings, the final exam was a piece of cake

I loved Dr. Tomc! The readings were great and really interesting. Her lectures are laid back and very easy to participate in. She is a fair marker and prepares students well for exams and papers. I would definitely recommend her...probably one of the better profs I've had so far.

Comment:
Didn't seem bad at first, but be warned, she is completley unsympathetic if you don't go to all the lectures and talk a lot. I did the assignments on time and got good marks, but she claimed to have never recieved my term paper and failed me and was totally indifferent to the attempts I made to prove that I had done it. Waste of my money and effort

I'm not the greatest at English, but I think I did relatively all right in this class. Her marking was fair. It wasn't as rash as how she admits in class either. Like the previous, you listen, you pass with a "B" at least. I liked this class.

i don't know what everyone is complaining about. i found her to be a very lenient marker. as long as you listened in class, you could basically regurgitate everything back during the exams. she made her points very clear and her class discussions were very interesting. i really enjoyed this clas :)
