WRTG100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Swears all the time, but is a nice guy. I wouldn't recommend taking him though, he goes off on tangents about the same things over and over. He is very serious about attendance and punctuality. Never cancels class, he taught once while he was sick and told us he thought he was going to throw up! He is nice though and can be entertaining.

Very knowledgable guy. Willing to help his students. Can be inappropriate and rude at times and likes to curse. If there's someone is doing something that he doesn't like in class he'll make sure everyone in class knows.

ENG220 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Such a sincere and great guy. Clearly loves what he does. Weekly exercises are assigned, very simple. Uses class time (almost all of the classes) to let people present their work and have the class critique it which is interesting. Not a hard course-weekly exercises, one portfolio at the end consisting of chosen pieces from weekly exercises.

I had Malley last semester for writing 100 and it was a great choice. His course is very clear cut, as long as you do the work you will pass. A lot of essays but they're simple. I highly recommed taking him!! He's humorous and will work with you.

Missed a whole week of class. Often late. Always talks about Living in Burriville and how Hockey is the best sport known to mankind. Overall good teacher but smells like cigarretes and is constantly swearing.Wears sames clothes to every class, but you learn alot and talk about very interesting topics.

interesting, witty sense of humor. helps develop your writing significantly. will go over papers line by line with you if you make an appointment. sometimes late, swears, smokes (not in class obviously), and 'tells-it-like-it-is'. take his class.

Cool personality. Talks like a sailor and is not afraid to give any lip back that a student may give him. Great guy, talked to him a few times one on one, very helpful. An enjoyable and entertaining class.
