Writ 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Shurgot is a very poor Writing teacher. Learned more from 101 teacher than I learned from his class. Not a "true" college class, teacher holds grudges so don't get on his bad side.

Lit 182 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The best teacher I've had at SPSCC & I'm almost done with my AA. He does put people on the spot but don't let that scare you. He works with the students until they can arrive at the correct answer. Very passionate about what he does. Definitely recommend him. :)

Writing 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Makes you feel like you're actually in college...He takes the class seriously and doesn't like for people to skip class or be late. But he's a good teacher and you feel good when you get a good grade from him.

Mr Shurgots class is a "true" college class. He stretches you, and challenges you by putting you on the spot, and won't let you off until you give him an answer to his question.His grading was difficult, but one you leave his class you'll feel like you can survive any class or any professor.

after taking writ 101 I thought this class would be fun Dr. Shurgot made me not like writing again, I learned alot in his class, but his grading scale is harsh, and he is very hard to understand, i am not a slacker, I put in like 6 hours a day for this class and I got a C, i revised my papers like 10 times daily his grading scale is harsh

I took two classes with Dr. Shurgot, and I would take anything the man taught. Very easy to talk to if you want to be in class. If you slack, you deserve what you get. He is open to any opinion as long as you can logically defend it in writing.

A real college professor. Too bad the slackers and whiners rule in the community college. IF your are here to learn, he's good.

don't listen to what they tell you I am an overall A- student and honestly i hated shurgots class, if you have any sense you will not take him, he takes attendance, makes you write lots of paper and then grades you by how much he agrees with your argument

Only the dull and lazy students hate him. He tells his students on the first day what he expects. There are no surprises. He's dedicated and helpful. Consider the quantity of spelling errors in the negative reviews and you'll know why those students were upset.

i am sorry to say this but Dr. shurgot is possibly my least favorite teacher at this school, he treats his students like high-school students and then he goes in and grades very unfairly for the subject i swear the average grade in his classes must be a C

Writ 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Shurgot is a diffcult teacher. He hates it when people are late or don't come to class. He seems to be a bit cranky, not sure what the reason might be. He puts people on the spot a lot and made me feel very dumb. Not a easy 'A'.

His class is the true college class!! He is very into teaching writing! He teaches us what we really need for COLLEGE writing. If you just want to pass the class, don't take his class. If you want to improve, go ahead!

Michael Shurgot is a rare teacher who has passion for what he teaches. If have no other interest in writing than satisfying requirments, then don't take him. If you are interested in improving your abilities, then go for it. He is old school and very smart. He expects what he should: Effort!

anyone who is "conerned abotu highering your GPA" should probably retake 101 before complaining about Shurgot. Tough grader but ALWAYS fair and available for help. Stay on his good side and keep any returned papers, I think he miscalculated my

I took his Shakespeare class and loved it. Passionate, articulate and works as hard as the students. I would definately recommend this class to anyone interested in literature.

Don't take him if you don't have too. It was a very frustrating class. He talks on and on about your last paper and you have no idea how hard it is until the last two weeks of the class when you can work on it.
