"Learning to write is a lot like trying to inflate a blimp with a bicycle pump. Anybody can do it; all it takes is time."--Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., novelist
My name is Prof. Linda Borla, and I teach English composition, literature, film, and humanities courses for Cypress College. As an instructor, I am on the student’s side; I want all to succeed. I make every effort to create a friendly and positive classroom experience where all students feel welcome and each individual, valued.
Since clarity is at the heart of communication, I make the writing process as clear as possible by having the classroom atmosphere relaxed, yet productive; the assignments challenging, not difficult; and the learning environment friendly, not threatening. Indeed, I feel fun greatly enhances the learning experience.
My goal is for students to successfully complete my classes, so I make myself available for individual assistance. Please stop by my office, call, or email any time. I am here to help you.
