There is an insane amount of work for this gen ed class! He gets off subject and rambles a lot so most o f the information for the test is not gone over in class, but congrats, you now know his life story.

"Gives good feedback" "Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass."

This guy is knowledgeable, loves what he does and will help if you need it. However, he rambles in class. I had a hard time getting information from him because I didn't care to hear his ramblings. I suggest a tape recorder to go back & listen to. He grades tough, I never got an A on my paper. He would always grade me around 85-89. Good luck.

Mythology Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C+

By far the least understanding and compassionate teacher I've ever had. I had a family emergency and he could not have cared less. He also expects an awful lot. Someone needs to remind the man he's an associate professor at a community college, not Harvard.

HUM 2130 01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher, easygoing, and very passionate about his classes. You must pay attention to him to get anything from the class, though. If you listen and try to apply what he is teaching you to the real world, you will walk away a stronger person with a broad point of view.

GREAT TEACHER!! Most people complain about his mythology class due to the amount of reading you have to do but it is so worth it. he is very entertaining in class and relates mythology to the present world. i definitely would take this class again!

My favorite class in college so far. Very Clear, Very Entertaining. His class is seamless blend of History, Literature, and Comedy.

HUM1120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Stilfer is very knowledgeable about his mythology, but do not expect to just read the myths and mark what happened in the on the test. The mythology is applicable to the real world, and that is what he emphasizes. It's more of a philosophy class, though.

ENG1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

Bill is very knowledgeable. He took me from using cliches and subjective wordiness to a tight and reformed professional (fact-based) approach to writing. This class is not easy but it is well worth the effort if you apply yourself. I was worried but I never slacked off so I got an 'A'.

There is a lot of writing and reading involved. Attendance is a must or you will miss a lot of information. Do the assignments and listen carefully- you will pass. Mr. Stifler is a very understanding and helpful professor.

I currently have Mr. Stifler as my online instructor for Mythology. He is the most unhelpful teacher I've had. Every time I contacted him by email he simply told me to read the book or read the instructions. I can read, thanks Bill. Also will dock you for turning in assignments too close to a deadline -- what then, is the point of a deadline?

Mr. Stifler is a great professor as long as you do your job as a student. The reading material is very important but don't think this is like highschool and you'll read everything in class. Most if not all reading is homework but is very worth it. He's a great instructor and will help you pass his class and graduate.

Stifler is a very tough teacher but I learned more in this class than any other English class. If you put forth the effort, you will become a better writer after the class garanteed.

ENGLI1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Stifler is tough. He has zero tolerance for 'excuses'. He can see straight through a slacker and he isn't shy about calling them out. He has his own ideas about some of the grammar rules that I was taught in school, but nothing that would cause you to fail another English class. Having said all of that, he is incredibly entertaining and VERY fair.

ENG1020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Stifler is a very book smart man with almost undesirable social skills. I hate to say his classes were veryyy boring and most of his comments were just him rambling. He is EXTREMELY critical. With extra credit, I barely made a C. He is not a flexible man. If you want a challenge go for it. If you want an A, find another teacher.

Horrible teacher. Does not teach anything..I would not recommend this class to anyone. Never opened a textbook in class nor did he teach the proper methods needed to complete this course. prides himself in not giving A's.Very arrogant and does speak of things that has nothing to do with the class.Waste of time and grade.

HUM2139 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very intimidating at first, but as long as you commit to the class and make an effort, he's really pretty nice and helpful! There IS alot of reading, so be prepared to make time for it. As long as you follow the guidelines for writing assignments (and follow them fully), it's easy to make a good grade. Use the study guides for tests and take notes!

I absolutely adore Mr. Stifler. Yes, this class can be difficult if you are not willing to give it your all but the purpose of school is to learn! He grades fair and is always available to help his students. If you are looking for an easy grade - don't take Stifler. If your goal is learning, then this IS the teacher for you:)

Worst teacher ever. Looks for every single mistake in the paper. He thinks he is very smart but he's not.. Do not take him.
