— An excellent course. Ms. Rapoport is kind, encouraging and shows great respect for novice writers. I enjoyed this course and look forward to other courses taught by Ms. Rapoport in the future.

— Janis was a great leader; very knowledgeable and shared freely with her students. She deserves a lot of money to teach this course - she is worth it! Treasure her.

— I have never given such a high evaluation but Janis deserves it. Janis is the best SCS teacher I've had.

— Janis is an exceptional instructor. I have learned more from this course than I expected.

— This was far and away the most interesting, and practical, course I've taken at U of T, mainly because of the teacher Janis Rapoport. She was interested and so available all the time. Also a very interesting person with a wealth of experience to share.
