ENG 161 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

No doubt, Op grades tough, but if you ask him about why you got the grade and how to improve, he will help you. His style is not for everyone, as he expects his students to advocate for themselves. I don't necessarily consider this a bad thing. He just wants his students to act like college students. Work hard, show interest, get the grade.

ENGL 161 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: WD

It's ironic that his grade here is a D+ when that's most likely the average grade his students receive. His comments do not reflect the grade you will receive. "Exactly what I want to see" is equal to a C. His style of grading is one that expects you to read his mind and create the perfect paper. Effort is meaningless. Not good for a film class.

English 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C

I EARNED a C. I was a President's List entrant for the first 3 semesters before this class. You MUST do the reading, You MUST attend class.You MUST be prepared to write four short essays, 3 long essays, homework everyday, plus reading. He is a nice enough guy, but forget about any prior writing achievements. You will not get out of here with an A.

english 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A

He's errogant. He grades really hard and doesn't care how much effort you put into your work. It seems as though he grades solely on grammar and not content of your essay. He will say that you have a good essay but still give you D on it. Only take him if you are an english major or are an extremeley good writer otherwise DON'T!!!!!!!!!!

By far the worst professor I have had in my 3 years of college! He kicked me out of class for having my phone on me when i used the restroom. We're in college not high school.Very ridiculous. He is power hungry and uses his power as a teacher to intimidate his students. He will tell you your paper is great and still give you an F. Do NOT take him!
