Selected Student & Colleague Evaluations

Allegra made every class interesting and interactive. There was always something to do and I looked forward to class everyday. I love how there was so much room for creativity and choosing your own topics, it made things a lot of fun. I learned a lot about document design, project management, aiming at audiences and more form this class and I intend to use them in my life and career moving forwards.

Student Review for ENGL 420 (Business Writing), Spring Semester 2018

Allegra carefully scripted and recorded a series of videos that accompanied each module throughout the course. The quality of the videos, along with the sense of who Allegra was as an instructor radiated off the screen. By the end of my review, I was wishing I was a Purdue undergrad who could sign up to take her section of English Composition. I highly recommend her.

Quality Matters Reviewer for ENGL 106Y, Fall 2017

Allegra is one of the best instructors I’ve had at Purdue so far. Her drive and passion for professional writing has really opened my eyes to this major, and I have seen my skills improved. I’ve found myself using things I learned in class in the real world. Her assignments and guidance helped me secure an internship this spring. I used what I learned in class in that interview and while filling out my job application. I am extremely grateful I enrolled in this course. I really wish I could take it again, it was so much fun and invigorating.

Student Review for ENGL 306 (Introduction to Professional Writing), Fall Semester 2018

Allegra is an excellent instructor and her constant attention to detail and ability to provide constructive criticism is always welcome. She is very fair in terms of grading. Whenever I have a question about the course I know Allegra will be more than willing to answer me. Allegra is one of the most caring instructors I’ve had at Purdue. While she is firm in her class values, Allegra understands that students have lives outside of class and is always willing to accommodate them. Course material is highly prevalent to the class objectives. Allegra’s courses have been some of my favorite/most important courses that I’ve taken in my major.

Student Review for ENGL 421Y (Technical Writing Online), Summer Semester 2019

Allegra has been an excellent instructor to this class these past 6 weeks. She has graded items that she didnt even assign and gave feedback that showed she understood! Her comments, especially to the blog post grades, are personal and mean a lot that she took time to give us individualized comments rather than copying and pasting “Good work!” onto all her students’ grades. When I see Allegra’s comments on my work, it shows that she really cares and took time to look at me as an individual student rather than as part of all her students. I read her comments to my blog posts and it really makes my day that she took time to be relatable to me and provided a comment that was basically a response to my topic. It seemed more natural and felt like I was having a conversation with her. This is such a small detail of what Allegra has done but it has meant the world. I loved having her as my instructor.
