ENGL 1302 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

Took it online over summer, the assignments were very easy, there are 3 main writing "projects" i did all mine the night before and managed a B, but had i taken more time an A would have been achievable. She is very helpful and provides online sources so you do not need a book

ENGL 2333 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

Super easy, just complete the assignments during the allotted time period and you should be fine. Be sure to read all of the text/readings assigned those are tested over later in the course. She's horrible about answering emails, but her easiness on grading kind of balances everything out.

Professor Sikes is a storyteller and an inspirational instructor. Her teaching style is very relaxed and there is a laid back conversational atmosphere to her classroom. She doesn't require a textbook. Writing assignments are detailed and based on material studied in class. She is very helpful and really wants you to excel at writing. Great class!

1302-21019 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Dr. Sikes is knowledgeable & helps her students. No textbook required,uses online links and DVDs. She grades easy but expects an effort from all students on the writing assignments. The thing I found difficult in this class was the lack of definite structure and organization, especially toward the end of semester. Pay attention and attend class.

Dr. Sikes is one my favorite professors at TCC. Her class is not hard if just put in the effort. For what it's worth I think she is a good person and wants only the best for her students.

Professor Sikes is the best Professor I have had so far. I highly recommend her. She does get carried away with stories, but she is hilarious and fun to listen to. You have to write 3 papers and do a Portfolio. She is very helpful through the writing process and gives you ideas about each topic on your papers. I loved this teacher she is the best!

I would recommend taking this class. There are 3 papers and a portfolio due. She helps you and gives ideas on how to write your paper. She makes literature fun and exciting. She cares for her students. She's a tough grader, but if you try it should not be hard to get an A.

Don't believe the hype! This was the worst english class I have ever had, Take any other teacher and save yourself the stress. I learned more from watching Sharknado than I did from this disorganized trainwreck. Good luck.

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

Professor Sikes class was very easy. You do need to stay on top of the assignments to keep up. I do agree that she can be slow answering emails, but on the flip side she will work with you when issues arise. I really enjoyed taking her class. I highly recommend her.

Mrs. Sikes is the best professor I have had at TCC. She teaches you English and valuable life lessons. You have a few small papers and she does her best to make sure you are very well prepared for them. Extremely helpful and an enjoyable woman. Would take this class again if I could!

I took this class online. First off, I LOVE that she doesn't have a textbook. She sends links to what you need to read. She also incorporates movies into lessons. She is very nice and answers questions fast. I made an A. There is a lot of work but as long as you do it you won't fail. I would recommend her to anyone.

ENGL2333 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took this class online and there is almost no communication from her. She is very slow at answering emails and her course site is unorganized. The class is not hard yet her test questions do not reflect readings. The tests also have long essays and all tests are on campus. Not a personal favorite for a internetclass.

Dr. Sikes does not require a textbook, but does require A LOT of reading. She is VERY slow at grading assignments, and returning e-mails. No test, or quizzes are given. Overall an easy class, but I can't say that I learned one thing from Dr. Sikes.
