he's a really cool teacher; his classes are kinda long and boring, he's very monotone and speaks very low, but he puts EVERYTHING online which means you can pass the class even if you don't actually go, very clear on what he wants! i would really recommend his class (first exam is a take home, second one your allowed a full study sheet, and the last one is by heart, but other than that there's one essay, and two little reading quizes, it's very easy and doable!!)

Michael is an amazing teacher! You can tell he's passionate about what he does. I had him for Western Civ and although he would talk a lot, which can get tiring, it helps in the end for exams, especially if you're taking notes from his lectures. He is very lenient, and allowed us to alter topics on the exams if we were not too sure of the subject, because there is a lot of content to remember! He has said many times he wants us to prove is that we've learnt something from the course.

I love him. He's super sweet. I asked for an extension on an essay i was assigned two months in advance and he gave it to me without any penalties. I missed several reading quizzes in his intro to the classical world class and all i had to do was bio his and he made me make up for them without any problem. He's honestly a really nice man and he is passionate about his class. I suggest you take him.

Boring topic but he's a great teacher. Will ALWAYS answer questions and re-explain something if a student didn't understand. His quizzes are a piece of cake and as long as you're ready for the midterm and final exam you should be fine. He sends all his notes through mio which is great for when you need to study. I highly recommend him.

He is one of the best professors I have ever had. I took him for my IS class, and he was very helpful. If you needed help, he would easily set aside time to help however he can. The course work was definitely bearable and you generally worked at your own pace (due dates were 'suggested' but you could easily ask for an extension). He is understanding and lovely. A good 75% of the class is spent in individual sessions, and thus, class is not mandatory. No textbook required. No exams. :)

Awesome teacher! He is so into what he's teaching you feel like actually listening. He posts all the notes and slides online the test is super duper easy and attendance is not really mandatory in my opinion I had him 2x per week i only went to class 1x. He's so nice and its impossible to fail his class. The class is also interesting and he pushed the dates of the essay twice so we had enough time to work on it. Just take him you will never find another teacher better than him im telling you

Mr. Leon, above anything else, is an incredibly generous teacher. He passed me with marks I really don't feel I deserved and more than that, he helped me through his course (Western Civ) when I needed it the most. His classes might be tedious to be at at times, but it is well worth it if you want interesting material that will actually teach you something.
