"Respected by students" "Gives good feedback" "Hilarious"

Hands down the BEST teacher for COMM 101! He makes class fun and the information easy to understand. He holds up time cards during your speeches and lets you use note cards. Only 3 tests and 4 speeches (one is a group speech) and the first one is only 2 minutes long! EASY! I hate talking in front of people but he makes you feel comfortable.

I didn't like him. And the six week semester doesn't leave a lot of time to change your mind about a class.

Professor Hoeflich is easily the best professor you can take. If you're not taking him, then you don't know what you're doing. He is very helpful, and makes class fun and exciting as well. I was nervous about speech, but his class makes you feel at ease. Take it in the Summer: no book required, no group speech, and last speech is not recorded.

Outstanding class! No need for a book, take good notes, the tests are based on what is learned in class. We had 2 major tests & 3 speeches. Prof. Phil keeps it extremely interesting by using personal stories and your input.Don’t hesitate to be involved in class and relax. I feel more confident to give a speech of any length after taking this class.

Professor Phil is a great speech teacher. Had him as a 6 week summer course. There were little notes but the test did come from what we did take and 3 main speeches. There was one surprise very small speech for extra credit. Glad I Took speech with this professor! Oh, and don't buy the book, we wont need it.

Professor Hoeflich is the BEST professor you could have in a speech class at HACC. He is very easy going but knows when it is appropriate to put his foot down. Tests come from notes but theres only 3 tests INCLUDING the final. 4 or 5 speeches total and 1 of them is group. I used to hate public speaking but this class made it easy for me. recommend!

COMM 101 - 038 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Phil is very down to Earth and incorporates humor in his lectures. Minimum note taking; however most test questions come from notes given. Various interactivities allow for better understanding of the material provided and makes the class fun. Tests were fair and few. Grading style is appropriate. Eliminates anxiety toward speaking in class.

This Professor was nice, a little corny but entertaining nonetheless. Never really used the book rather you take board notes. Tests not easy unless you study. He will work with you as far as grading when it comes to speeches and what he expects. DO use speak loud and use gestures. DO NOT sway from side to side, pocket hands, or cross legs..lose pts

I am currently taking his class now and let me tell you. Prior to the start of this course, i dreaded every aspect of it. Now that we are nearing the end of the semester, I am very comfortable with getting up in front of the class to deliver speeches. His quizzes/exams are not difficult. Everything you need to know is on the board. TAKE HIM!

Took him fall 2011, canceled class often and many classes were like 5-10 min. Seems very disorganized. Don't buy the book you won't use it. He is funny and it is only speech, so if you don't mind having class canceled a lot you will like him.

Awesome professor. You'll laugh every day. Makes little jokes and tells stories about funny events before class starts. Tests are fairly easy and he grades fairly on the speeches. I got a 65 on my first test because I missed the back page and I ended up with an A in the class. highly recommend him as a professor. He'll make your HACC experience fun

Had him this fall. He was a very fair teacher. My entire class enjoyed him and all speeches went well. His tests are not hard at all if you take notes. Lots of class interaction assignments and extra credit.

Awesome, hilarious and very down-to-earth. He's flexible with schedules and any issues that come up. Very approachable, and it's not just about the speeches. Don't buy the textbook, cause he even said you won't need it. He'll save your money and pain with buying textbooks, so he's definitely a winner in my book!

This class is more than just speeches. You learn lots about communication as well. Prof. Hoeflich is a great teacher and keeps the class interested and engaged in his lectures. He is fair and has clear expectations for each kind of speech you give. Fun class. Highly recommend this professor. Do not by the book, it's not needed.
