ENG 111 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A
"Skip class? You won't pass." "Get ready to read"

There's no doubt about it, this professor will be a very tough one. She's also strict and a grammar nazi. But, she does it to make the class better writers. Like other comments say, she can be a bit nose-in-the-air sometimes, but if you just treat her like a normal person, and READFOLLOW THE SYLLABUS AND DO NOTES, you should be fine in her class.

If you are not prepared to work I would not recommend this teacher. She is very strict about the work but that I feel is a great thing. She offers help for any questions that you have all you have to do is ask. I don't care what anyone else says she is a great teacher!

Mrs. McCullough is a wonderful professor. She tries very hard to make sure her students understand what she's teaching. She pushes them to succeed and will thoroughly explain why something in their paper or assignment was wrong. She is very understanding about people having to deal with everyday life issues and tries her best to work with you.

She is very tough but if one shows her that he or she is persistent and dedicated then she will do everything she can in order to help. She wants to see her students succeed and go on to universities to impress the professors with his or her writing and grammar skills. I recommend her to everyone. She is my favorite professor at Gaston.

Ms. McCullough don't play! She is an expert in her field and is highly educated. If you want to learn and apply yourself daily take this class. If you're a slacker save your money and your time she could double as a Master Drill Sergent. I PRAYED for a C and I love English. Seriously though shes caring but she shows tough love. She's always dressed

This teacher walks into the room with her nose in the air. Talks down to students and continuously acts like she is better than them. She talks down to everyone as if she thinks she has a higher level of intelligence. Once she made a mistake on a test and stated "we should have changed the question to make the answer right"....Horrible teacher

Teacher is unnecessarily hard for this to be a elective course. She will rip your test and papers apart no matter how hard you try. This is a college course but she expects you to know how to write like a professional and has seem to forgotten she is the teacher. Would not recommend her to anyone

This instructor can come off strict. But.. she is tough because she wants you to succeed. She offers extra credit and second chances on papers. At a college level those chances shouldn't be given. She even offers to sit down with you if you are having problems with anything. I had something happen with medical problems, and she is wonderful!!!

Eng131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is a VERY hard teacher for test taking and papers. I have written many papers that were really good, even won awards, but I was making C's on her papers. She is very intelligent and was interesting in class, but she was really tough on papers and exams. However, at the end of the class, she let us do extra credit which was about 50 pts.

I will say that I'm a writer at heart and an aspiring author. She taught us on a university level. No easy "A" indeed but she challenged my mind and I am forever grateful for to have been a part of my life. So if you want real deal Holifield take her class!

This professor is very hard/strict, and has high expectations of her students. So if you are looking for an easy A DO NOT take this class with her. She seems like a very educated woman, but to be honest I didn't find her the most helpful or friendly teacher and would not recommend her to anyone, personally. She expects way to much from you and g

eng101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I doubt it's possible this woman ever gave anyone an 'A'. Ever since graduating her class, I've assisted numerous friends, both native English speakers and non-native speakers with their composition assignments, and never received anything less than my highest grade with her. I feel she's tough, and just this side of fair.

She is an excellent teacher! Extremely smart and knows her English/Literature! Yes, she is strict, but if you simply pay attention and don't act stupid, you will be fine. She has a great sense of humor and class can be very fun!

ENG131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Currently, I am taking her ENG 131 class and it already seems rough. She is VERY detailed orientated and expectations are high. If you want a challenge, take her class. You WILL learn, but there is a substantial amount of work. During the beginning of class, expect to take a pop quiz on the material you were supposed to read due before.
