"Would take again" "Hilarious" "Gives good feedback"

I was glad to have him for my very first college semester. It's not that the class was easy; J.J is just really good at teaching the material. Just get your work done when it's due. No need for textbook is needed. Lectures are fun to listen to, easy to understand, and always on point. He is very understanding, and will almost always help you out.

Very easy going professor. One of the best professors I have had. If you are not lazy and do your work on time you should not have problem passing this class. You must do some writing and reading but nothing complicated. He gives sufficient time to submit your work. He is very good helping students to achieve their goals. Just DO NOT BE LAZY!

a very different professor. He can open your mind and make you like writing. Don't be lazy and get your work on time. There is no much reading, but there is much writing. Creativity is very appreciated! Totally recommend!I took him for both ENC1101 and ENC1102, loved it!

I really enjoyed his class. So much that I decided to take ENC1102 with him again. As long as you do the essays and show up you will pass. I also liked that we talked about interesting topics during class. Very entertaining and funny. Do take.

One of the best teachers I have ever had. Lots of essays but as long as you do what you need to do and get them done on time, you should be fine. He does not fail anyone who does not deserve to. Very entertaining class. Definitely recommend this class!!!

His instructions are very clear, there are a lot of essays that you have to write during the semester but it is about the class not him. Read his book, fallow his instructions, and be at the class, get an A. He is a good professor.

His class is easy, but you need to write a lot. His book Deco sucked, but whatever you don't even have to buy it because you won't use it. You won't use a book at all, so it saves money. I recommend him if you write well.

J.J is a very good professor. At first, he may seem a little intimidating, but as time goes by you'll go with the flow. His assignments are easy, clear and interesting, coming from a esl student for one year. After taking this class, you will improve a lot.Don't bother buying books, for he doesn't use them. I highly recommend him.

Jay Jay is an amazing professor! <3 He creates an amazing work atmosphere & is totally amusing once he starts his lectures. Though, don't confuse fun with slacking! He wants you to be as involved as possible and will expect your best efforts ALWAYS. If you want to learn and really have a COLLEGE LEVEL experience, he's the professor for you!Recomend

He loves what he does.He is a really good teacher. The only bad thing is that you need to do a lot of writing. His class is not hard but is not easy. He is very funny. You will laugh every time you go to his class.

He's a really great teacher. Just make sure to do the work and if you are a decent writer, you will get an A. Also, I would suggest that you take his class for a regular term (like a full fall or spring or even a 12 week summer) instead of a 6 or eight week term to make it easier on yourself. The work will be much more spread out.
