Probably one of the worse teachers I've had. All he does is repeat the same information each class. Makes you read stuff out loud like this is elementary school. Tries to find a secret meaning in everything. Horrible teacher I don't ever suggest anyone ever takes a class with him.

Mark is a Great teacher, from a student right out of high school, he's the kind of teacher you would like to have to get adjusted to college. Basically no homework, just quizzes online(easy). Fun class!

Great teacher! Very understanding and helpful. He likes talking about the subject a lot, and he expects the students to have their opinion too. You have to be a super slacker to get a bad grade in his class. A very interesting and passionate teacher! HIGHLY recommend his classes!!!

sticks to the schedule. quizzes are easy. if you don't make a certain grade on your first paper you are required to go to sage learning center and have someone review it. After that you set up an appointment to meet with him and go over the paper. Although you should do this with your first as well. Great teacher.

I was excited for this class at first but as the class went on he makes things unnecessarily vague. Write about this subject, but don't write about it, just write how you think you should write about it.

I am taking Mark's 152 class online right now. I would not suggest taking any ENG classes that he teaches, as there is a very light work load, and right now I have a 74%, maintaining the C needed to pass the class. I've learned my lesson never to go with him again and ALWAYS to stick with Lisa Crizer if possible!

Nice guy, simple class. Mainly journaling and class discussion. Thing that bothers me is that during discussions, Mark will ask many questions, but will continue to ask the same question until he hears exactly what he wants. Seems to just brush you off if you don't say what he wants to hear.

One of the best teachers, if you are looking for a light homework. He talks nonstop. He definitely likes to talk about the Bible and his faith. He'll swear, which is weird. I took him 2 times and like him a lot! He won't give back you back your papers but that's ok.He's very critical about writing and will make you talk..so talk! Very easy grader.

I'm so glad I had Mark for Comp II this past semester. He is very helpful when it comes to writing and is not shy about making corrections to your essays, which only improve your writing style. He's one of the more relatable teachers at the school and I hope to take more classes with him.

All Mark does is talk, and talk and talk some more. His classes are very boring and he is never prepared. All he does is have you read out loud and then he analyse what you read. It's so pointless.

Mark is the greatest teacher I have ever had. He is willing to listen and help when needed. I love how he is willing to allow me to ask those questions like can I do this. I have him for online comp two as well.

I found Mark's teaching style to be extremely comprehensible and relevant to both class and the outside world. I recommend his classes to everyone.

Mark did not really even know the subject matter, and there wasn't a textbook either; but I'm still going to say that his ego and rediculous non-related side stories made me want to drop. badly. Between his tests and student presentations, i think i did more work than he did,and that was not a lot. BOOOOOO

Great teacher. I took online ENG 152 spring 2011 and got an A. He was always quick to respond to emails.

Mark was my instructor for english 1 & 2.There are few assignments, so if you like classes where you are overloaded with homework his sections not for you.I really hate english classes thank you Mark for understanding that not all of us are english majors and do not care to write 2 or 3 papers a week like some other english instructors.

Barely any assignments for the online class, which makes it hard if you miss an assignment. Felt he was very lazy. Never met him in person but really don't want to after taking his online class. He's very short with his email responses and makes you feel like an idiot if you ask him a simple question. Was extremely disappointed...

Great professor, really laid back as long as you come to class. Classes were mostly discussion, and at least with the other people I had in the class, discussion was always interesting.
