Nishant Batsha

Student Testimonials

I loved how I felt welcome even though I do not have a strong writing background. I liked it when Nishant said "we are all writers." I really can't believe how much I learned about how to write a story.

Nishant motivated me to write a piece and how to learn from my peers on how to critique. He was very enthusiatic about the subject and provided great critiques and suggestions for improvement.

Nishant gave clear and productive comments on where I could improve my writing, where I had done well, and where I missed a point that would contribute to my argument.

Everyone in my class felt very comfortable asking questions and making comments that might have been shot down in other classes.

Believes in students. Optimistic. Gives you the benefit of the doubt.
