Eng 152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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!

ENG 152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

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.

ENG152 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

Eng261 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.
