SPEAKefsp Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had Cofta for Effective Speaking and Theatre Appreciation. Both classes had a fair amount of work, definitely do-able. He's very straightforward and isn't afraid to argue/yell at you. Definitely passionate about teaching and knows his****.

He is a straight forward teacher who will not hide his feelings. His assignments are boring, but he does know just about everything in his field.

He has a great sense of humor and there isn't a thing this guy doesn't know about theatre. He is very willing to help if you ask.

World Lit. Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Horrible teacher. Don't ask him any questions because he just acts like your an idiot for not knowing everything in the world. Will literally make fun of you infront of the class to make himself feel good I guess. Do not recommend at all!

this guy is one of the worst instructors i have ever had the displeasure of being in close with. he is a self-centered a**clown that talks about how great he is and how small minded the rest of the world is. entire classes have problems with his clarity and teaching methods that dont work. it is really a suprise that he is still teaching.

Not a bad guy and not a bad teacher. He's willing to work with you if you have personal problems as long as you are polite and keep contact with him. His class drags a little bit, but he's pretty relaxed and gives assignments that are reasonable and don't take up your whole week.

ineffective spk Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

he likes to hear himself talk, and will flip out if you don't listen to his ramblings about what other classes have done and how other people have done things. he's chubby, so for the demo speech, just give him food and you'll get an A.

To much time talking not enough time teaching. He never listen to anyones suggestions. He once told a friend and I that everything we learned until college about english was wrong. 2 hours teaching, and 2 hour talking is pointless.
