English 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is not helpful at all. His essays on these dumb boring books is hard to read and understand. He don't know how to teach and the class is boring and he plays these lame Colbert Reports!!!! I wish that I wouldn't have taken him for English 101. I will advise other students not to take none of his English classes??

Eng101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He seems nice, but his class is awfully boring. He talks a lot about his wife and always makes lame jokes. His class can be somewhat easy if you keep up with him. He's not very clear about what he wants in his essay and is not an effective professor in my opinion. I wish I didn't take him.

Honestly, he is a great English teacher. I'm naturally good at writing but I went to his office as soon as he would make a new assignment and speak with him about my ideas. If writing is not your strong point, don't expect him to spoon feed you grammar and literary techniques. He expects you to have an opinion and actually make overt claims.

Excellent Professor. Helpful and knowledgeable. Lots of reading assignments of carefully selected material and in-depth discussions. His comments on essays are extremely helpful for improving one's writing. He really takes the time to consider both form and content of papers when grading. Recommended!

ENG208 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is nice and helpful,but he should not teach a two-hundrer level class.He has a phd and I'm sure he knows a lot,but that doesnt show in class since he seems insecure or confused about the poems or books we read.He is not very organized,and doesn't respond to students' comments or opinions.Also he is not clear about what he wants in essays.

The subject is boring... he does let us out on time but the essay stuff is harder than my other classes. Plus the books... eh... slow... He's always in his office, though.

Taking 101 with professor Miklos. He's a hard grader, plain and simple. He cares more about text structure than anything else.. you can't just throw ideas at the paper and expect to get a good grade. Like someone said before, professor Miklos is gonna treat you like an adult. Take his class only if you are willing to put effort on your essays.

I do not recommend this professor at all. He always goes off topic and never gets to the point. He only engages conversations with certain students and makes the rest feel left out.

Proff. Miklos is a great teacher who will treat you like an adult. He encourages you to help yourself as the real world will not hold you by the hand at everything you do. Please note: Most negative comments about Miklos have poor spelling and grammar, yet they expect a passing grade in Miklos's English class. Go figure.

Mike is a great guy. His class was never boring, and our reading material was enjoyable. Reading the material is required, for the essays totally revolve around them. I did see a lot of people struggle with their essays and I would have appreciated if he spent more time clearly breaking down what was required of us in the essays.

I started off very excited to take this class bc I love to read and write but this professor totally took all the fun out of it. He is not clear on what he wants for his essays and the questions are always confussing. He mostly talks about his family and spends most of class time asking "Does that make sense?" He did teach us how to win in who want

Honestly dont take this teacher if you need help on writing essay. He assumes you know hot to write essay in a perfect way. And if you get someone to revise your essay n redue them you will still get a low grade! I tried to do good in his class but he basically only passes his favorites

Helpful, takes effort to get a good grade in his class because his essays are supposed to be long, but hey, you're in English 103, you're supposed to know how to do it. Overall he is a good professor.

His class is very interesting and so are the topics that he presents in his lectures. If you are not great at essays it will be a bit hard for you. Personally, I enjoyed his class especially because now I feel more confident with my writing.
