Professor Thielen was awesome! He allows you to use your study guides on the tests, making them 100x easier. If you don't like purchasing textbooks find someone who can share theirs with you, you WILL need it! You might get some last minute cancellations and he allows you 3 unexcused absences but he makes class interesting enough. I recommend him!

Dr. Thielen was probably the best professor I've ever had at PVCC. He is helpful, considerate, and SO clear in his direction. I learned a lot from his class. He comes highly recommended, as long as you're willing to really do the work, read the book, and study for the tests.

He lectures were entertaining and eye opening. There is a fair amount of homework in the class and must read the textbook if you want to do well in class. That was my problem I just listened and took notes on Powerpoints but didn't read text book like students who recieved a better grade than me

I cannot say enough about what a wonderful teacher Dr. T is! He's incredibly nice, very helpful, & he makes what could've been a very dry subject a fascinating one. I always looked forward to his class & will jump at the chance to have him as a teacher again. The class is not hard & there really isn't that much work to do. Fun class, fun teacher!

Seriously one of the best teachers I have ever had. Not only does he know communication, he practices all of the lessons in his lectures. I will be watching for other classes he instructs in the future to register for those. Be prepared though; there is lots of homework, but its worth it.

Dr. Thielen (Tee-Lynn) is an amazing professor! You can tell he really enjoys what he does. I'm so glad I had him for a teacher. The class is very interesting, never a bore and the work level is moderate; just do the work..he believes in true learning not just memorizing for a test.

Dr. Thielen (tee-lynn) is easy to understand and very organized. I was in his hybrid class and his presentations were easy to follow and understand. The book is used heavily as you have to write a discussion paper every two to three weeks. The tests, taken on scantrons, aren't too difficult, but fair and occasionally have funny suggested answers.

Sweet-natured guy but incredibly organized. You can tell that just by looking at his syllabus--he outlines the entire semester for you! No tricks or surprises. Overall, a straightforward teacher and course.

Truly a great teacher. Very helpful. You can just tell when a person has found their calling in life, and I believe he has found his. Don't hesitate to take this class. He really cares.

I learned a lot in including his family profile (repeatedly)Very passionate, organized and driven. The small group activities were a lot of fun and a great review for the tests. He constantly reminds you he has written 2 books and the supplement class book. Attendance is key to passing, class is easy, tests are hard! Listen & do the work, NO FINAL!

I loved Professor Theilen! I learned so much in this class, and going into it I did not really expect to take as much away form the course as I did. Dr Theilen is funny, interesting, and truly cares about his students. And in a nerdy way, he is kinda hot. Fun class, caring and informative teacher. Highly recommend taking your Com classes with Walt
