 Professor Leitner was nice and always willing to help. She has three or four exams that are based on class lecture and readings. Her exams are fairly easy and she is a fair grader. Se gives good feedback on how to improve during speeches and her lectures aren't too boring. She made me feel comfortable during public speaking so I liked her. She's a okay professor.

 Professor Leitner is very nice and her class always goes fast because you're always doing something different. She has plenty of grades so do not get upset if you receive a bad test grade. You have three presentations. The first one is about yourself, the second one is an interview, and the third one is a group project presentation. The group project one is hard but I had an awful group. Definitely take her.

 Leitner is a really great professor, I enjoyed her class every time I came. Her class is really easy, you give about 3 speeches, and there are only 2 exams. It's not hard to get an A in her class..just do all the work which is easy points and prepare for your speeches. Study for about 2 hours for the exams and read over the chapters really quick in the book and you'll do fine. I recommend taking her.

 Ms. Leitner was one of my favorite professors. She uses a variety of teaching methods to make sure all the material is covered, but not in a boring way. She also does a name-game, which allows you to know everyone and to interact every class period. The textbook is rarely referred to, but it's a good idea to read it and take a couple notes, just to better understand communication. The speeches are easy, and she helps you along. She is always available, and wants you to succeed. She will double check your papers and will answer any questions by e-mail as fast as she can. She's also a very understanding and friendly teacher, who understood medical absences. She gives you 3 permitted absences which is nice, but the class is so enjoyable, there's really no REASON to deliberately skip. I loved how personal and easy-going the class was. I would definitely recommend her.

 At first she comes off as a really tough teacher but by the end of the semester you will love her. She grades tough but if you do everything in the correct format you will get a good grade. There are three speeches and one test and no final. There are a lot of things that go along with the speeches but in all I would take her again if I had the chance.

 14 of 39 students found this review helpful.

 When you go to her class the first week she tells you everything that will be going on. She makes you feel like it'll all be easy and understandable. Once you actually start that class she starts to have favorites. Treat them better then others. She speaks to certain students and not all. She gives about 10 study guides to do and turn in which have to be explained thoroughly. As a teacher you should be teaching your students. She just gives study guides and barely teaches the classes so the projects have to do with the chapters in the book. The projects are soooo complicated and so much to do. She just asks for too much for a class that isn't your major. She takes the job way too serious. When taking her tests you have to take off hats, put book bags on the floor and roll up your sleeves. The study guides for the test sometimes don't even have anything to do with the test. She speacks to the students how she wants she has no filter, meaning if you present badly, on her evaluation for you she will tell you you did horrible, and just a bunch of negative comments. LAST BUT NOT LEAST HER FINALS ARE RIDICULOUS. The study guide she gives has nothing to do with the test... she asks random question that she knows you wont know or cant remember. JUST TRY AVOIDING HER CLASS!!

 She started off as not bad. Then she started taking the class way too seriously like we were all serious communication majors. This class is only a Gen Ed class. She makes you do every little ridiculous step and it's so annoying. She is a really harsh grader and she doesn't care and has no understanding for anything. She has NO compassion. Just DONT TAKE HER.

 Compared to every other Human Comm class, this class sucks. We have to do three speeches; one speech is a research project, you have to buy an entire suit for the interview, and you have a group project. You have two exams, unlike any other Human Comm class too. She takes this class way to seriously unlike any other professor. All of the extra work is unnecessary for a gen ed class. Take another professor for this class.

 This class is supposed to be easy, and it is pretty simple. I felt that this prof. was really unfair, judging by a grade I received on some of the activities compared to other classmates. She is too uptight about the importance of this class and makes it seem as if you will fail in life if you do not take it seriously. Again, it is an easy course but the grading seemed unfair in some situations. I wouldn't recommend this prof unless you had no other choice.[]

 When you first meet her you would think she is nice and the class isnt going to be too bad but it is. She doesnt care about any excuses and expects way too much for a gen ed. She picks favorites and grades unfairly. She grades speeches extremely hard. She doesnt care if youre laying in a hospital bed she expects you to be there and focusing on nothing but that class. Avoid her at all costs
