English 103 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class really gave me a challenge over the summer! Alot of work, not hard, but get ready to read and analyze. A whole lot of thinking required. He is very hard on grammar mistakes; however, he does point out what you did good also. I recommend everyone to study fallacies before taking this course. Overall, just do your work, and you be fine.

Eng 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took literature with Melodia, and it was one of the most eye opening classes I've taken. He is a really passionate professor who wants students to care for literature. He doesn't really teach in literature because he wants the students to think outside the box and develop their own ideas. Don't be shy to share ideas in discussions also!

Eng 100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

The workload was overwhelming with all the reading and writing but what else do you expect it is English. I enjoyed the readings and the essay topics were relevant so it wasn't difficult to write about. The research paper may seem impossible but it's actually easy. Just do it on a topic you are super interested.

ENGL 103 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

I took him for ENGL 103 online and got an A..and english/writing is my worst subject. Discussions due every week, midterm and final which had to be 8 paragraphs long WERE NOT timed for my class, the rest of the essays had to be 7 pages long, a couple quizzes, offers extra credit..i don't see what to not like about him. He's more than fair.

Eng 100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Def didn't seem like an Eng class. Seemed more like a social media class. I still don't understand the point of Eng 100. You'll wait for forever to see a grade. Prob the worst class I've taken. This class is very time consuming, but you won't learn a thing. I seriously would not recommend this class at all.

Eng 101 Taken for Credit:No Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: C

Hey you 2013-2014 enrolling students! I'm going to give you my honest opinion. He is a tough grader, but he gives you a chance to retake it if you haven't done well. Easy class if you do all the assignments, but he never responds to you. Email or through discussion.. honey you have to wait 2 weeks.Forever. U want easy B+/A? Take this class. Online

ENG103C Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Tough grader & takes forever to grade the essays. He says he'll give the grade 1 week after the due date but the won't happen. More like 3 or 4 weeks. He's not very clear in the online course. I'm selling the 2 required texts books for this class. I bought them brand new. They're in great condition. Email me at 4collegetextbooks AT gmail

Holy Homework! You cannot slack off in this class. Workload is insane. He's not very clear but if you ask a question, he's pretty helpful. Be prepared for TONS of work!

ENGL100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Although there was a lot of work, he gives you a lot of time to complete it. He also puts all assignments, with the directions up on the first day so you know what and when an assignment is due. VERY helpful. EASY A if you do the work. RENT the book; you use the book just not that much.

ENG 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I took Melodia for online Eng 100 and had to drop half way. His workload was a bit much but doable. However I had way too much going on for his homework. Hardly used the book that I spend $100 for and just wrote a bunch of essays. Very hard to get in contact with also.
