He is a very interesting professor, but he is constantly off topic! He is never specific about what he requires. AND at the end of the term, you have to write a 13 page essay! DO NOT TAKE HIM FOR BRIT LIT!!

I find Prof Karr very interesting. He is the most lively tutor at HCC - Hayes campus. His pragmatic approach in responding to questions, active listening skills, the use of phonetics, and most especially he painstakingly attempt to relate issues to real-life happenings. I will recommend him. He is very time conscious.

Great teacher. Need to attend class to be on his good side. He grades very fairly if you show effort in the course (participate, do readings, etc.). While textbook readings are assigned, only go over about 3 short stories (all reading are online for free - don't need book). Offers tons of extra credit -got a total of 40 extracredit, 20 on 2 grades

Dr. Karr is a great man. For my first class taught at HCC, I found the prof. to be very easy. Nearly all of the work is work you can do yourself, yet he is always available if one needs help. He learned 90% of the students names (I appreciated this), thus allowing the class to be more personal. He grades essays easy as long as they are not garbage.

He is really nice, but very confusing. I have an A, but really I haven't learned anything from him. Also kinda quirky. He says his commas out loud like "So comma today we are going to..."

This professor is not clear at all. Even when he says to go by the syllubus, he would sometimes say things were due on different days. And if you're the type of person who wants to learn by an instructor, do not choose this class!! All you do is work on online work, he never actually teaches. I definatly regret not choosing a different class.

Very helpful teacher, he always tends to the students needs and he is one of the few teachers that genuinely CARE about the student. I am so happy that i took his class this summer. I certainly would recommend you take him.

Horrible teacher, very unclear about what he was teaching and wasn't helpful towards the students concerns and questions. Seemed to be confused with how to approach the class in an effective manner. I certainly would not recommend.

Dr. Karr's demeanor is not as expected from a college instructor (Professor). He has a bit sense of humor. He rants about unrelated matters and phenomenons. He accuses whomever he feels is convenient, for anything; whether it is true or untrue. I took him in the summer, so 5 essays were required: one of them is the research paper(mla)+ daily work.

English 1301 was my first college class. Let it be known, Dr. Karr is a very humorous man. He is highly intelligent and seems to enjoy sharing his knowledge. He definitely challenged me and helped better my writing. The way he teaches motivated me to go to class every evening. I definitely recommend taking English with Dr. Karr. :)

Dr. Karr is anything but helpful. The only thing he does is rant about non sense unrelated to the class. You are better off just doing everything off the syllabus and turning it all in then following his incoherent and inconstant instructions. This man CAN NOT make up his mind on anything. Just follow the syllabus if you have this HORRIBLE teacher.

This instructor is great. He is very articulate and made this class very interesting. I wanted to take him for 1302 but personal schedule would not permit. If you like to be told directly, pick this instructor.

Dr, Karr is one of the best professor. this is the class where u get rewarded for ur own work. unlike others, Dr. Karr knows ur capability and enjoys reading ur own works. ur unorganized piece of essay has more value than the one u copied from the internet.i thank you Dr. Karr for making me work hard.

Most student at HCC are lazy and think classes are difficult. Dr Karr is brillant very knowledgeable and helpful. It would behove those of you lazy asses to take his class and learn something with the goverment money that is paying foe your schooling. Dr Karr will teach you a lot!
