"Skip class? You won't pass." "Gives good feedback" "Hilarious"

very energetic instructor!! I'm not a huge fan of chemistry, however, mark makes this class a lot of fun. You definitely are not handed an A in this course, I'm struggling just to break above a 90%, but that is up to you-he is always available to help, and give you the success tools, you just need to use them!!!

"Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters" "Tough Grader"

He acts like a cool guy the first day and then your going to notice that he stars to get frustrated if someone asks too many questions, his lectures look like the test is going to be really easy and then it turns out to be supper hard, he thinks he's some type of king so on the tests he would make up his own units, and he makes mistakes

Chem 131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

In my section there was only 4 students left at the end. This is an intro class and he treats it as upper level. He also has an attitude like he can't be bothered. His lectures are good. I felt like I learned a lot even though my grade didn't reflect that. Retook the class from another teacher and got 100% overall. Run for your life!

Chem131 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

This was my favorite teacher and class at EvCC. The lectures were clear, tests based on the worksheets. Study and learn the worksheets and the tests are not impossible. He doesn't allow students to waste time during class and lab, use your critical thinking skills! A is not easy, but achievable with some work.

Mark is a really funny and clear teacher. He is willing to help outside of class. I loved his class! Homework was extra credit which helped a ton. :)

Don't trust these old reviews! I can tell Mark has been improving on validating all student's questions. He talks quickly but clearly. Quizzes are easy. Exams are hard but fair. Homework is extra credit. I was scared to have him as a professor, but now I am pleased with the instruction I received. However, one thing: prepare for lots of sassiness!

chem121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This has been by far the hardest class I've taken yet. Mark does not make the class easy and he expects ALOT from his students. He refuses to answer generalized questions, so be prepared!He has NO patience for ignorance or excuses. If you let him, Mark will help you through this class, but as I said...be prepared! Study, study, study!

Chem121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Great teacher for chemistry. He is very straightforward and expects you to put in the time outside of class to earn your grade. Homework is optional, and given as extra credit towards tests (this is very helpful to your overall grade). He has practice tests available online that mirror his exams. I would definitely take him again for chem.

Great teacher with a clear and easy to follow teaching style. Extremely fair grader. Places an emphasis on doing homework and reading but doesn't skimp on covering important material during lectures. Class had weekly quizzes, and interesting/engaging labs.

Chem140 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I think he is a great teacher that has changed my view on chemistry. I was interested in it before but he actually prompted me to change my program to chem. He has a lot of energy and passion for chem and it shows. He challenges and expects the class to work hard, but ultimately he wants his students to succeed and gives credit where credit is due.

I do not recommend him. His tests are extremely hard and he grades subjectively. He picks his favorites and does not hesitate to belittle his students.

Very nice person, but very confusing test and quiz questions. Homework isn't required, but is extra credit. That really helped me out! Don't be afraid to visit his office, he is very willing to help.

Mark is a really hard teacher. He has made very rude comments to me and other students. Chemistry is a very hard subject and I would not recommend taking it with him. He is funny at times as he is teaching but if you talk to him in private he is quick to belittle you.

He is hilarious. Really HARD tests, but if you do the practive worksheets and practiev tests, they are practically the same. He's not as mean as people think, he's just gruff.
