A little eccentric, but still a good guy.

Brilliant teacher. May not be the most organized but you can do well in his course with a little effort.

He's very enthusiastic, but can be slow at handing back papers making it frustrating. Very willing to give extra credit and paper rewrites. says "I don't really care what your grade is, as long as you come out understanding the material and better your writing!"

Ignore all of the comments that he is rude and a bad guy. He is not! He does have strong opinions and gives hard tests but nothing that can't be studied for. Our midterm was even a take home! He is terrible at returning papers and tests but he makes up for it by not being so strict with you. Plus, if you do poorly on something you can re-do it.

Very interesting class and good sense of humor. One of my best classes at the U. However, not very prompt about getting grades back on time. I guess he makes it up by also letting the students turn in stuff late. Easy going and humorous!

For those of you who can't handle getting papers back late, just don't take Eli. Otherwise, if you enjoy learning from a very intelligent and interesting person, sign up for his courses. A's were pretty easy in this course. If you want to write one paper and zone out the rest of the semester, take another prof. If you want to learn, Eli's your man.

He is a jerk. He rarely if ever ansewers phone calls or email and frequently skips his office hours to "get coffee" with the debate team

Great professor really knows his stuff. Sometime has issues when it comes to timeliness in grading. Other than that, by far my most interesting and entertaining class of the year. People that say he is insulting have a really poor sense of humor,and are totally off base. I had a great experience. Some people are wound a little to tight around fina

I've had two classes with Eli and need to say: even in the thick of a real knockdown drag out argument I've NEVER seen him be disrespectful or hostile with a student. Seems uncharacteristic. Irresponsible about grading and weaselly about the consequences? Absolutely, but he knows it & will totally work with you if you approach him constructively

He frequently lies to students when they call him out. He is full of empty promises and patronizes his students. Brilliant but a rude and unprofessional educator.

He cancels 25% of the classes, takes over 5 weeks to grade assignments, and has no respect for his students. I will likely end up with an A but he's a jerk pain and simple.

He is an extremely talented and brilliant individual there is no denying that. I found his class very entertaining and enjoyable. His largest problem lies in his use/lack of time. He has difficulty getting tests, papers, emails etc. back to you. If you ever want to get things handled you must talk to him when you see him. You have to be patient

Maybe just a bad semester because while admittedly brilliant and good natured, he seems totally disinterested. If you like argument and want to sit around listening to him dissect your unorganized arguments for his enjoyment-this is a fun class. If you actually want to improve your own skills, don't expect any feedback or help here.

Hi is a great teacher. He engages the class and listens really well. I will take another class of his. He really cares about students and he is there to teach not just do research.

Eli is great. I knew nothing about him before I took his class. He teaches argument so it is fun. He has good questions on his tests and explains things thoroughly. I highly recommend taking his class. The plus too is he is really cute too.........
