Jesse Rosenthal

Jesse gives thorough and helpful comments on all papers. I found his comments to be quite useful and insightful. He was approachable and lenient and understanding when it came to deadlines. Jesse rarely returned anything on time. However, it was worth the wait in order to get back his excellent comments. Although the seminar tended to be more of a lecture based class, he welcomed comments from students. He didn’t seem all that comfortable with a discussion-based class perhaps because he feared silence.

A very good University Writing instructor, probably one of the best according to what I've heard from other students. Jess is approachable, sharp, and - after the first few rather tense class sessions - rather funny. Best of all, he gives unbeatable advice about writing the academic establishment. Fair (but not necessarily lenient) grader.
