CIS 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

If your a student who has to take this class for your field of study and know nothing about computers avoid taking it with him. He is rude and arrogant. He was never on time to class though we have to be. And I mean 45 minutes late sometimes. He never posts grades when he said he will and takes forever to grade your assignments. Horrible teacher.

CSC 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

He is a little difficult to deal with but if you want to go into the field of computer science his class is really helpful. If you're looking for someone to hold your hand then this class is not for you. You just have to pay attention and take notes. He is a little rude if he feels you're being rude to him so you just have to have a good attitude.

This teacher does expect you to do your work but if your attitude is good so is his. If you ask for help then you'll get help. I thought he was very fair. He can be quick tempered and moody but I still liked him.

CSC 221 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Absolutely the worst teacher I've ever had. For competent students his class will be a total bore and an easy A. For students who are kind of lost you will be twice as lost after listening to his nonsense. You will learn absolutely nothing from this guy.

He is the best. I am really glad that i had the chance to take two of his classes. If you would like to be challenged, then take his classes.

CSC109 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Expects you to know things pretty quick, which is hard with no text book. He tends to just make up pseudocode which doesn't make much since, and tells you your wrong when you use the examples he gives you. Over all avoid this man if you can.

He is not helpful, he runs the class by insulting students that don't understand whats going on. He shows you, but doesn't teach you the information.

He's a good teacher, but he used CNN as an example in some of his lectures which I didn't like because I'm not a liberal/democrat.

Difficult teacher not thought about it, but if your field is CSC, take all the classes you can with him. Yes you will hate him for his pop quizzes, on time assignments, and hand writing code on an exam. But you will be thankful every min when you transfer to a 4 -5 yr school as most teachers in csc dept don't prepare you properly for them.

First of all: Mr. Scheemaker switched my grades with another students in the online grading system @ OCC called ANGEL in the Fall 2009 semester in his CSC-111 course, implemented in JAVA. When I asked he to review this, he first stated he would, but in his office he later the next day (no doubt after his seeing his own mistake here I suspect),

Avoid this man's class at all costs. He simply does not teach, is not helpful, and is always unpleasant. Often, assignments are due on days you do not even have class (he has everything turned in online). Save yourself the frustration and choose another professor's class.

This is my second semester at OCC. This guy is terrible at teaching. He flies by material and wonders why people don't get good grades on quizzes and tests. He gives way too many "Pop" quizzes. He will never tell you exactly when they're going to be. He's a Nerd programmer, so he expects you just to get it since he did 12 years of programming.

All professors should act is the best interest of their students. They should have the willingness to help their students. If Prof. Scheemaker is not willing to help his students and talks about his "amazing" soccer team all the time, he should be a soccer coach full time and not a professor! He is inconsiderate, not pleasant, and insincere.
