I had Professor Quinn for Shakespeare 1 and he was amazing. He's so helpful with everything and is very entertaining. We had quizzes every week on the readings (very easy) and we would answer questions with a group of students based on the readings. Overall, class was easy and I actually ended up learning something from him.

Just had Young Adult Literature with him! Brilliant man; really knows his stuff! Doesn't post the powerpoints online due to copy write issues and puts a lot of powerpoint information on exams, but other than that, fantastic professor! Highly recommend!

Awesome professor. Soothing voice. Note taking is a little difficult but he goes over things at least 3 times. Especially the points that are important. Quizzes are every week but very easy to do so long as you pay attention. It's an easy grade with some effort. Lots of reading but it's mythology so don't take this course if you don't want to read.

Dr. Quinn knows his stuff (yes- he's brilliant)and his classes are interesting and informative. He offered a modified syllabus for the Winter Session course, gave us the material 2 weeks early and offered to accept it late with no impact to our grade. Classes are not easy,but he is fair and always willing to help. Take him if you can

Horrible online class. 10 day intersession and he gave out an unmodified full semester syllabus and said do it. No teaching involved. Class is do able if you have no life and do it 24/7 for 10 days.

This guy is absolutely brilliant!! The amount of stuff that comes out of his brain is incredible! A bunch of quizzes but as long as you pay attention in class, they are fairly easy, and they are short. One research paper & one presentation. Overall pretty low workload. Take him if you can!!!!!

Well, he certainly knows his stuff; very intellegent. My problem with the class was the lack of room for anything but ancient and archaic lit. He has no respect for literature dated later than 1700. I don't think I was hot enough to be in his presence.

I absolutely loved his mythology class! I've heard he is pretty difficult for his Renaissance class but Mythology was simple. He gives a lot of notes but he writes them up on the board and as long as you pay attention you'll be fine on his quizzes (which are relatively short and he lets you leave as soon as you're done). Great professor!

Good teacher,very passionate about english. He seems intimidating at first but once you get used to his style you'll be ok. A good amount of reading/writing. Be prepared to work and learn a lot. Overall, I recommend him.

One of the best classes I have ever taken. Makes you work hard but you learn a lot! Makes the class interesting. Love his voice. Can't wait to take another class with him. Doesn't put up with nonsense and dumb excuses for late work. Make sure you're prepared for the class or you're screwed!

Awesome class! I would definately recommend him as a professor. He puts important details on the board then also does a small review at the beginning of the next class. Only allowed three abscences.

GREAT literature professor -- it seems like this guy knows absolutely everything. I took his Mythology (mostly Greek) class. He knows the material inside out, but more importantly he is able to make it extremely interesting. He has a very clear and commanding voice and his tests are extremely fair. HIGHLY recommended.

Prof. Quinn is absolutely wonderful. He is clear, concise, enthusiastic, and brilliant. If you do your part as a student, you will not have any problem. You can approach him about any concerns, and he will help you. One of the BEST prof. outside my major!!!! That should speak volumes

LOVED this class. He is one of the brightest people I have ever encountered, his knowlede base is unbelievable! He taught me a lot and inspired me to learn more about Greek Mythology on my own time. The class is pretty easy as long as you take good notes.
