MCS 105 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+
"Participation matters" "Inspirational" "Gives good feedback"

I don't understand why everyone rates him so low. I thought he was awesome. Really got me thinking and seeing things for myself, which is what teaching is all about. Very clear expectations. If you do the work and participate, you'll learn the material and get an A. Would definitely take again.

HIST 148 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

If you show up and do the work, you won't have any trouble passing with a good grade. He does tell dumb jokes but I learned alot about American history I never knew. Tip: When Tim says "Students have trouble with something" pay attention! It took me half the quarter to realize he was trying to save us headaches. Once I got that, magic.

HIST214 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

For HIST214 there were about three books(read daily). Every wk there was 3 disc. posts and 2 quizzes. The instructions are well organized and detailed. Procrastination will get you no where in this class. He is always willing to help you & is very nice, even gave me some candy after our meeting. He's nice, the class is just a little difficult.

HIST 148 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Nice guy but he completely singlehandedly destroyed my love of history in a matter of weeks. A terrible, gruelingly boring, and unnecessarily difficult class.

It's a hard class but what Tim expects is clearly stated so there wasn't a surprise there. If you push yourself, you can do it!

HIST197 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I was super surprised to hear the reviews on this teacher. I thought he was really good. He was great to have as a Freshman because he teaches you how to be a good college student: helps you with essays, etc. He is really really good. He is also very approachable and really wants his students to succeed. yes, he is hard, but you will learn a lot.

Hist147 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

A very hard class. You have to come to class everyday because he's one of those teachers that encourage preparedness and "might have a pop quiz" everyday. There are a few essays but they demand a lot out of you, especially if you aren't a huge history person. Good luck, you'll need it.

I really don't recommend you guys take this teacher unless you want to challenge your self and want to let your GPA fall. It's sooooo horrible and he is extremelly strict about the essay and crazy quizzes.

HIST148 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I've only been in this class for a week and I already detest it. Tim seems like a nice guy, but he assigns WAY too much work. We had a quiz on the THIRD day of class and an essay is due in the middle of week 2. I know many of you are required to take this class but if there's any way to get around it then do it. Week 2 and I feel like I'm in hell.

HIST147 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Horrible teacher! uses the word "Umm" about every other word when speaking to the class. Assigns intentionally vague assignments, takes all of his lectures straight from the text book, and insists on teaching you more about how to write the perfect essay for him instead of teaching us what we signed up for which is HISTORY! dont take this guy!!!!

HIST146 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

These reviews are way off. Tim is a nice instructor who assigns an average amount of work. You usually have to read about a chapter week, which you are quizzed on weekly. As for papers, he clearly outlines what you need to talk about, therefore they are straightforward and not challenging. You get good grades if you do your work, like most classes.

Hist148 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

SO HARD. Throughout the class you have to read all of 2 55 word text books, and are quizzed weekly on their content. Three VERY hard essays, as well as blackboard posts. The hardest grading teacher I have ever had. He is nice, but its a very hard course.

HIST137 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took this teacher because of graduation requirements. I am a really good student, but it was the hardest class I have ever taken (harder than Calc 1, 2, and chem series)! The reading was INTENSE (we read the WHOLE textbook 500 pgs, quized on weekly, a novel 500 pgs, a novel 200 pgs, 3rd book 100 pgs, on top of 4 or so major essays)!!

lectures all class long excpects you to read the whole history textbook which he tests you on weekly. overall nice guy but teaching is bad and everything has to be correct chicago style format or you lose points. too many papers. at start of class there was 30 students now theres 5 students left. expects you to read several books on top a textbook
