I took Eng50 and Eng1A with Mr. Kraus. He may seem grumpy and cold, but once you get to know him you will see that he is the most dedicated professor you will ever meet. Show him you are there to learn by asking questions. Show improvements on your essays by not making the same grammar mistakes. Visit him at the writing center for additional help.

Great teacher but definitely long winded sometimes. He will criticize you and your writing but it's nothing to take personally. If you want an easy A this isn't the teacher but as long as you put in the time to do the work (which isn't that much) then you'll be fine.

Kraus is a great English teacher, very clear and honest and appreciates it when you actually try but doesn't expect perfection. And that's what makes him a great teacher!

Mr.Kraus is a great teacher! He is very helpful and the assignments are clear. If you take his class you will acquire skills that will help you become a better writer. He is also the type of teacher that does not mind any questions and will answer every question until his answer is clear.

Took a couple of classes with him as long as you do your work you will get a good grade and actually try. Most kids in RCC want a hand out and the professor to hold their hand as if they were still in high school.

This Teacher is completely boring! He doesnt use powerpoints. He's difficult to understand doesn't give back positive feedback and his writing is not clear. He assigns a lot of essays and gives you a week to complete each one. He is SUPER HARD!!!!! NEVER take him hes old and needs to retire!

Most boring class i've ever taken. He has no powerpoint and sits through every class at his desk and just lectures. He does make useful corrections on papers, but he is incredibly degrading in them as well. He lectures through most of his class on how stupid everyone is. Horrible teacher, and an unfair grader. DO NOT TAKE.

This teacher is very hard. He grades harshly and only tells you what you did wrong instead of telling you what you can do to fix it. Must follow directions. The English lab isn't helpful either because they don't proofread papers. However, if you ask Mr. Kraus a lot of questions, he's helpful and you may end up getting a passing grade with a C.

This teacher at first glance, may seem weird. And it's true. He likes to go off subject and talks a lot about politics and loves to watch the news with coffee. Seems to me that he grades harder when you start off the semester then when you end. If you want a challenging class where the professor is quirky, unclear, but helpful, take his class.

Great Teacher! He is very interesting and can ramble off on his little tangents. If you are a relatively decent writer then you will do good in his class, so long as you attend! He's awesome!

This guy is tough! He is old as hell too but is also one of the most interesting teachers i have had. Do not under estimate him for his age he is as sharp has a tack and is very witty. Very tough instructor but i learned a lot and have gone back to him for help. doesnt come off as approachable but really is a good dude.

This man is unrealisitic. He said once he watches CNN on weekends w/ a cup of coffee and laughs away at the errors on the botom of the screen. That just goes to show how hard & unrealistic he is when grading papers. I had a paper checked by a English 1A professor, she graded it with an A; when Kraus graded it, I got a C-!! Don't take him, PLEASE!

I wouldn't recommend Mr. Kraus. He's an English instructor, so of course he has high standards regarding grammar and spelling. Just make sure you carefully proofread your work before turning it in. As far as personality goes...he tries to be helpful when it comes to academic work, but in class he's just flat-out insensitive and mean-spirited.

He is one very smart guy, and if you listen carefully, has a lot of information to impart. He is always willing to help and makes great points when criticizing your papers before you turn them in.

way to boring... i've never seen a class with so many students sleeping. He just talks, and talks and then.. he just keeps on talking. He knows stuff but he will judge students way to crazy.... you'll have a C for shure...
