He's nice and very dynamic. Yes he does go on American Politics tangents frequently –like every class frequent– which I would be okay with it but when 2/3 of his class fails the final exam... I do not recommend. My issue is that I studied very hard for his exam and I even had trouble with it (he asked us specific questions about 2 New York Times articles we had to read which had little to do with the course content).

Don't take this teacher,if you are not motivated. His classes are really boring and you will feel like skipping, unless you try hard and prevent yourself from going to sleep. However, his tests are pretty easy if you study. Also he talks about american politics a lot and get ready to hear his criticisms.

look his RM classes are a waste of your time. He talks about ISIS all day long and barely talks about the class. fact : The class before the midterm which is worth like 30% of our grade, he decided to show us a video on ISIS and when I asked him if that was gonna be on the exam, he said "no i simply thought this was interesting" and when i said, "well can't we go over the material for the exam" he answered "well i'm showing a movie right now" you get the idea.. BUT i will say he's a nice man

Class is basically him lecturing. The course (Ancient Greeks) isn't heavy on material perse, but you still need to read and pay attention. Fair marker. Lots of videos shown in class, so that's a plus. Tests are okay, just study and you'll do okay. Overall, a decent teacher. Don't expect to take any notes in class (this is both an advantage and a disadvantage). It's him doing oral lectures so there's very little actual writing. Can get boring, but the videos help.

Had him for American Century. He's very knowledgeable and passionate about what he teaches. However, he lectures all class (question periods every now and then but no one ever asks anything) and you're required to read a 500-page book over the semester in order to pass tests. If you go in with an open mind, you'll leave surprised at how interesting the class was. I definitely didn't think U.S. politics would be interesting to me, but I was wrong. And it's relevant to our situation today, too.

Read his course pack for Research Methods early on, itll help you a lot and you'll ace his class. Also super helpful if you have any trouble. Overall a great teacher.

He is VERY rude and closed minded. His classes are boring and he never stops talking. although he knows his stuff, he does not make it interesting and cannot properly execute it.
