Ms. Airoldi is a great teacher in nearly everything but grading. She's a very difficult teacher when it comes to grading papers and the like, but you can tell she does it because she wants you to learn from your mistakes. In all other aspects she's amazing in my opinion. She makes good jokes once in a while but not so much that it's annoying and she clearly knows very very well what she's talking about. Also she's nice and will speak to you outside of class readily

One of my favorite teachers at Hunter. Her class is challenging, but she's happy to meet with you outside of class and I thought her grading was fair.

ms airoldi is super smart but a very hard grader. i love her class, but if you aren't an english student and just want the easy a, she's definitely not for you. in class discussions, she's super knowledgeable about the books and points out really interesting aspects of the analysis that you never noticed. however, her grading is absurdly hard--a B on a fle is considered good, and everyone cries when they get their first fle back. luckily she lets you rewrite everything for a new grade!!

Ms. Airoldi is quite possibly the smartest teacher I've ever had. She's also really funny and knows how to generate good class discussions. At the same time, she is a very harsh grader. You have to seriously think about essays -- it's not a class where you can just write anything and expect a good grade.

She was really mean and graded super hard. I really didn;t like her. She needs to lighten up and ease up on the grading before becoming a mother

She's an amazing teacher, but she's super a super harsh grade. But she does usually grade fairly and if you read the books and do the homework you'll be all right.

I LOVE HER. She's the only reason I know how to speak half decent English. She spent one period teaching me grammar and I've aced every grammar test since. Also she has a fantastic personality. :)

i'm a fan so far (have her for latin am, which i think is being discontinued). she's kind of nerdy, very quiet, and certainly not given to lecturing. there are a lot of long silences in the class, which can sometimes be awkward, but she's flexible. she's not as hard a grader as she's made out to be, but she's definitely not easily impressed. i like that class, though. interesting stuff, and a good second semester class--she shows a lot of deference.

MOST AMAZING ENGLISH TEACHER IVE HAD AT HUNTER!! shes very relaxed and even if youre on her bad side, she wont really show it but she'll give hints. she likes symobolizim especially in her FLE's. shes a tough grader also, but that's understandable because it pushes you to work harder. and it pays off because you become a better fle writter. shes soooo funny so enjoy the time u have with her cause most teachers at hunter are serious and dont come close to comparrison.

I really REALLY like Ms.Airoldi. I did SO bad on her FLE's and PLE's and what-not, but she saw my effort and my class participation and still gave me a REALLY good grade compared to my Fle's. She will literally smash knowledge into your brain that wont leave you for a long time. And while she's hard, she's funny and nice enough to cancel that out.

Surprisingly popular given Hunter student's general perceptiveness about teachers. You'll live her the first day and loathe her within two weeks: difficult, stubborn, unfair, pedantic, dull.

She's very funny and very personable. She doesn't always keep the class that well under control, cause she usually laughs along when we act out. Average grader- not too hard, sometimes too critical. Could afford to be a little more passionate about English in general. Overall, one of the most enjoyable classes I've ever had.
