His class is so boring and dull. DO NOT take his class during the summer, the work is intense. His grammar ex. is alright, but there are numerous essays. 3 hours in his class is boring af. Only had to take his class because English 1A in the morning was full

ENGL1A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is by far the worst professor I ever had. He is an extremely tough grader, and he can come off quite rude. He can also come off as superior. He gives plenty of homework, and he urges you to give up your social life in order to pass the class with a decent grade. I have not learned from this man AT ALL. I do not recommend this prof. to anyone.

ENGL1A Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I was his former English 1A student and I also feel upset when people kept giving him bad ratings. Please dont expect to earn an easy grade letter for English level if you want to learn something. By the way, Mr. Serran was in my 2012 valedictory speech, and I was proud to have been his student once upon a time...He is the kindest instructor!!!

ENG905 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Took his class couple of semesters ago. Saw his rating and made me sad. Yes, he can be hard. But if you want to learn, take his class. He is willing to help you if you are willing to learn and do you work. He's grad isn't easy, but his reason is you must learn from your mistake. If you do that, rest of ENG classes will be easier. Trust me.

Last semester I took his class. He is a very carefully and organize teacher. Every homework assignment was clear and helpful to our learning process. He really wants his students to do well in his class. The other low ratings are from people who didn't want to try or work hard in his class.

He worked very hard. He is organized and willing to help, but you should work hard too. You will be hurt feeling because his style of teaching. He is not fair and clear in grading. Not bad if you have no choice to take another class instead.

Just looked at the comments of the students. I am convinced that if you like to learn, take on professors like him. You will go a long way and TRULY learn. Take on the challenge to keep and boost your confidence. You are not babies anymore who need lollipops in exchange of being good at English.(I don't even know if I am allowed to comment here!)

I was wtf I sited all my work and didn't get it. Then he proceeds to tell us to just d

he is hard, if you are going to take him summer. Because you don't have that much time to study. If you are willing to learn and to study hard, take him. although, you really have to study hard. Be active in class. If you cooperate, he'll be proud of you. And it gives you hope to pass his course. For me, he's a good teacher but you will need to stu

In the beginning of the semester I struggled to understand him. It's not always easy to follow him or his sense of humor. He will dissect your papers and deduct points for any improper grammer, punctuation, etc. However, he does want to help you learn and do well in his class. If you put the effort and "hang in there" it will be worth it.

I have never hated English more than after taking it with this professor. He knows more how to criticize your papers than to really help you understand your mistakes and how to improve them. On my final research paper I have NEVER worked so hard on it in my life as well as my final. If you want to spend ALL your time on his class, go right ahead.

This teacher knows his English. He is a hard grader, but you will learn so much from him. After taking his class, you will be very more knowledgable in your future English classes. In the words of T.N. Serran, "Words can start wars; words can end wars." We have the same hero--Jose Rizal. Go Filipinos!
