Professor Hernandez is my favorite professor at Texas A&M International University. Her material is straightforward. She makes the lecture hall a fun learning environment as well. I'm going to take my fourth class with her in the fall, and I could take more.
I took Professor Hall's 1010 class and it was easy. It's one of the most enjoyable courses I've ever taken so far. I will surely take another of his courses in the near future. Overall, I highly recommend his class.
Professor Maurer is disorganized. It's like giving fake grades on discussion boards because it throws out random numbers without explaining why you might have gotten 80% in a lecture. Also, she gave me 70% on a draft even though I thought it was good. So I resubmitted the draft for the final exam and to my surprise, I got 97%. Overall, it's an easy class but watch your grade closely.
I took Professor Law for the Cancer course. All I can say is that it was really good. Unfortunately, he got worse on Genetics. I don't know if he thinks we don't need time to move on to complex material because it's not a G course, but simply because it's top-level doesn't mean he should relax in teaching or giving lectures. Also, he acts as if you already know everything and he speeds through all the lectures.
I took Doctor Collins for Chemistry 120. It went decently until halfway through we went online due to the pandemic. The tests were unreasonably difficult and became open-ended online tests, with things that were not taught. Basically, he blamed us for not trying when the exam average was in the '40s. In addition, the homework was extensive and the lesson became extremely chaotic.
Professor Khandelwal will give very little feedback. When it was commented on, she was a bit annoying. She did provide rubrics but didn't grade any of them. Honestly, I scored 95% in the class, but I feel like I was just following the rules. I didn't even have to read PowerPoints, because the book was enough. On the other hand, she's reasonable when you send her an email with questions. Overall, it's an annoying, but not a difficult class.
Professor Martin's class is about what the chapter is about. He provides PowerPoint presentations and highlights the important words that will be in the test. The test is very simple, especially if you study the highlighted words. The class is very interesting, and you do have some essay assignments, but they were very easy as well.
Professor Harris can take up to the first ten minutes of class talking about nothing and you'll be done late. It's a class prose workshop. You will expect a lot of reading and also a lot of outside sources, not just peers to the workshop. There were ten short answer questions in each peer review, which takes much longer than it should.
Doctor Watson is one of my favorite professors. He's truly a kind person and great. His slave literature class was by far one of the most interesting classes I have ever taken. Also, he postpones due dates anytime when needed, which is very helpful. Also, he's very understanding and has much knowledge about the class he teaches. I suggest you read what's assigned.
Doctor Reynolds really cares about her students. She's very sweet. She does a lot to make sure you do well in class and really understands the material. Genetics can be hard. However, she made it easier to understand. She's very helpful as well. There is a lot of homework though, but it helps a lot in understanding the test material.
Professor Pangemanan is kind and well-educated. She knows her job very well. Just show up in class, practice before tests, and do your weekly homework which you have three chances to get each question right, plus extensions if you fall behind. Also, the final is online and she can be your friend if you can't go to tutoring.
Professor Pike is the best Math professor that I've ever had at Mesa Community College. I had him for Math150,182, and now 220. Yes, he seems cold and intimidating, but he can also be funny and caring if you're willing to put in the effort. Also, there are many opportunities to get extra credit. You don't need a textbook, and he will check your homework for mistakes before it is due.
Professor Emmett is wonderful. He's one of the funniest and most understanding teachers I have ever had. His grading consists of four tests, a final, one of the first two study guides, and attendance. Also, he offers tons of extra credit, so be on the lookout. Overall, my experience with him is great and I do absolutely recommend his class.
Doctor Bricker is on it. She responds to everything and is very good at getting you to look at gender from a different perspective in class Spch324. I enjoyed all the writing assignments and the quizzes were fun too. There are lots of them but don't worry, they are all interesting. She's a tough, but fair grader. Just make sure you turn in your discussion papers on time.
This course is the hardest that I've ever taken. Lots of material in one semester. Don't expect to have a life outside of school throughout the class. However, Professor Swanson is an excellent student and wants all of his students to pass. He is tough because it benefits his students in the long run. I recommend his class to anyone who is willing to put in the work.
I took Professor Hine's class during the Covid-19 pandemic. All I can say is that she's a saint. She opened up to do all assignments at her own pace, removed deadlines, allowed extra credit, and removed the proctoring requirement. At a time when everything was uncertain, she did more than her best to let the student know that she cared and was there to help.
