Dr. Lauren Bailes Reviews

Sarah R. (Student in Introduction to Research Writing) – June 22, 2020

I loved this class! Dr. Bailes is a wonderful and engaging professor. She was very accommodating and willing to offer support. This class is perfect for any student looking to explore the world of research writing, and opened my eyes to the many possibilities of research papers. The assignments were challenging yet not confusing, and the live lectures were always interesting and interactive. Overall, I enjoyed this class and would recommend it.

Sateen K. (Student in Introduction to Research Writing) – June 22, 2020

Dr. Bailes was very easy to talk to and personable. All of the information that she gave me was very clear to understand. Made Research writing less intimidating. Highly recommend to beginner writer!

Michael M. (Student in Introduction to Research Writing) – June 8, 2020

This class helped me grasp the fundamentals of a well-written research paper. I went into this class not having the best ability of writing, researching, and citing a topic. After accomplishing this class, I have a much deeper understanding of how to create a strong research paper. Thank you Dr. Bailes for helping me build on my valuable writing/research skills that I will be able to use for the rest of my life!

Sarah K. (Student in Introduction to Research Writing) – June 2, 2020

I loved this class! It was so interactive, Dr. Bailes is amazing and so easy to talk to. I learned a lot form this course, and this is definitely a course I would recommend to a new or experienced writer.

Sarah B. (Student in Pre-AP English) – April 10, 2020

In this class, I appreciated that the topics were covered thoroughly, that I received in-depth feedback so I had the opportunity to improve, and that if I had any questions I knew that they would be answered.

Cassidy K. (Student in Pre-AP English) – April 8, 2020

I really enjoyed every aspect of this class! The pacing was perfect, and you teach in a clear, understandable way.

Hannah C. (Student in Pre-AP English) – April 8, 2020

I love how much we get to participate in the class, and I think that the layout of the lectures (class) is very clear and easy to follow. Overall I really enjoy the class!

Jonah C. (Student in Pre-AP English) – April 7, 2020

I loved the class! Your comments and feedback were super helpful. You always brought an upbeat, positive energy and was very inviting in tye lectures. My writing improved a ton with your feedback and analysis of the writing. It was comprehensive and I feel confident in writing through all genres. Thank you!

Sofia (Student in Pre-AP English) – April 7, 2020

I really enjoyed this class! I learned many new things and refreshed my memory on others about writing. I also learned how I can better interpret literature. Overall, this course was a great combination of literature and writing. I really like that the live classes are focused on teaching a large part of the material, so this replaces most of the textbook reading, and I feel that listening and experiencing is a more enjoyable and effective way to learn. I love that Dr. Bailes makes her live classes very interactive and is aware about not making the whole class a lecture; the live lessons are an excellent mix of effective lecturing and interactive activities. I also appreciate that she takes the time to make sure whether the students have any questions frequently during the class. Additionally, Dr. Bailes seems very knowledgeable about English, so I appreciate having her as a teacher. I really enjoyed the novels we read; it is clear that Dr. Bailes took the time to choose the great novels that teach specific things aligned with the course goals. They were not overly complex to read, yet they were very intriguing and meaningful, and they brought about good discussion and the teaching of particular concepts. The workload was not overwhelming; it was just enough to ensure proper learning. Finally, I appreciate that Dr. Bailes gave a good amount of feedback on the assignments; I would only say that sometimes the feedback (not all the time though) was a bit confusing for me, or I did not think it really applied to my writing because I had had a different intention when writing. Overall I greatly enjoyed this class and learned a lot from it!

Feedback was constructive and appropriate. I appreciate you allowing them to choose a topic they enjoyed and then when my son got off track (started writing a more argumentative paper) you guided him gently back on. Thank you for your quick and concise responses.

The timing was perfect when you gave us the one on one class before the final research paper was due. That was great [-] continue to do that.

Sarah Chan (Writing Research Right) 

I enjoyed this class. Dr. Bailes is easy to talk to and really tries to get to know you. She provides good tips, feedback, and powerpoint slides. Taking this class was a good experience for preparing research papers for college, and I learned a lot.

We are thrilled to have Dr. Bailes back at Aim Academy. A very popular English teacher while completing her doctorate at the Ohio State University, Lauren dialed back teaching online when she first accepted her tenured track position at the University of Delaware. We are delighted she is now able to add Aim Academy back to her schedule.
