"Tough Grader" "Assignments galore"

Ugh, no. Trust me on this, you don't want this professor. He spends most of the class talking about himself and his "accomplishments" and barely any time is really devoted to lit. his grading technique is ridiculous (he took points off one student's paper because he didn't like the way it was stapled) and makes blatantly rude comments all the time.

ENG101 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B+

He's a good teacher except he's not so clear about his assignments He constantly arrives to class late He grades your essays infront of the class and may be embarassed because he would tell you your progress on the essay so loud. Also, he always chirps about his personal life, and he doesnt speak well english so it might be hard to understand him

english 102 Taken for Credit: N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The most pathetic class I ever took. the professor is completely useless. I receivedB+ on every paper that he didn't even bother to read. showed up to every class and still got a B. if you want to learn spare yourself because you will not. talks about black history the entire time and nothing remotely close to literature. very disappointed

hilarious! he talks about himself mostly but is very entertaining. It got annoying at times but when the work from other classes were too much i was grateful he barely gave work. if u want to learn something, dont take this class.

Very smart guy. Unique way of teaching. Lots of writing assignments and book reading.. Interesting grading policy! Be smart. Be in class. Do your best in the writing assignments. Cause even though you get C's and B's you can still get an A if he feels you tried your best.

terrible teacher ! spends the first hour of class completely digressing about nonsense, nothing having to do with journalism, and then has you read from the textbook for the last 15 minutes. doesn't explain how to do any of the assignments and then gives you a "D+" when its incorrect. also has a thick accent that is hard to understand.
