Very passionate about Literature! His class is easy if you do the reading. I wasn't sure I would be able to interpret all of the readings but he is excellent at interpretation. Read, take notes and you will pass the class no problem. I have a new appreciation and understanding for Literature and I have thoroughly enjoyed his class!

Fantastic! It's amazing how he can connect with students at his age. If you can read and write in a somewhat educated fashion, he is NOT a tough grader. You won't be bored in his class as he will always say something you wouldn't expect. Very committed to his work and his students. Gives a few essays per semester but they are only 2 pages each.

Seems like a tough grader but if you try your best and do the work you'll be ok. Very helpful and willing to give feedback. Funnier than most teachers for his age. Highly recommended.

The best english teacher by far. I can't stand english, reading, or writing what so ever and this class was awesome. Extremely smart. I could listen to him lecture for hours! A++

Sort of a tough teacher, but he's always there to give you extra help. If you put in the time and effort, you will get a good grade and enjoy this class.

ENG 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This is one of the very few classes in which I enjoyed at D.C.C. I only say this because this professor was tough, but cared a great deal about his curriculum as well as for his students that showed effort. I hate english classes, but I would gladly take it again with this teacher.

I took Modern Drama with him and we had a ball. He had us acting and reading and watching movies. He's very funny and engaging- approchable, easy grader, and knows his stuff. If you need a 200 level course I recomend him.

Great guy: funny, nice, intelligent & a little wierd in a good way. I really enjoyed his class & learned a lot. He is not the easiest grader though. I have always had A's in english and i got a C in this class. The only other negative thing I have to say is that when you write your own poetry or stories he MAKES you read it to the whole class

Mr. Porpora is one of the best teachers I've ever had in my college career. A great man and a better teacher, he had the ability to make Shakespeare fun. I believe he is an acting coach and it shows during his lecutres. He really knows how to captivate an audience. Awesome teacher.
