English professors are a hit or miss. Sometimes, they’re endlessly boring, others are super interesting. Sometimes, they give way too much homework, sometimes they do absolutely nothing. But, every once-in-a-while you get an English professor who is interesting and teaches you something new with every class without stressing you out every weekend. That professor is Bureen Ruffin.

1.Interesting Conversations

In Prof. Ruffin’s class, every day is a new discussion, and all of them are interesting. Whether it’s about an assigned reading, or a question about an author, or about your own personal writing, Prof. Ruffin is willing to discuss it all. One of the most important parts of her classes are workshops, which are class discussions about students’ work. They are super helpful and Prof. Ruffin always gives the best writing/editing advice. Image result for conversation gif

2.Good Work Balance

Like mentioned earlier, many professors can’t figure out the right amount of homework to give their students — it’s either overwhelmingly impossible, or nothing at all. Not with Prof. Ruffin! She knows that students have a lot of stuff to do, so she never overwhelms her students, but she also knows that homework is necessary for learning. Image result for reading gif


3.Very Approachable

One of the most important qualities any teacher can have is applicability — and Prof. Ruffin is just that. She is willing to answer any of your questions in class and out. She answers questions honestly and thoroughly in class, and answers emails super fast. She, just like every other professor at Pace, has office hours to answer questions and have conversations too!Related image

5.Will Improve Your Writing Skills

Of course, what everyone wants from an English professor is to learn better reading and writing skills. Prof. Ruffin can do that for you — guaranteed. She is an excellent instructor and will definitely make you a better reader, writer, editor, and author.
