"Respected by students" "Gives good feedback" "Tough Grader"

Ivan is a great teacher and you will learn a lot from him. He has tons of experience in law enforcement and teaching. He will make you laugh. If you disagree with something he says make sure you can back up your opinion or he will embarrass you. Great class! Not extremely easy but not to difucult. Defiantly recommend.

Best professor I've had thus far. You could tell he really has a passion for the material(given he's a detective) and it makes the material more enjoyable to learn.

Excellent teacher! I have never had a teacher put so much time and effort into their classes; he would give feedback on all of our assignments and the reviews would be paragraphs long. He has a lot of knowledge in this field and his assignments keep you thinking. I highly recommend him.

Class was great! as was the teacher! theres a newspaper article due weekly, and the tests are a little tricky. But still pretty simple considering you can use all notes, powerpoint and book during the tests. just make sure to have everything printed off - hard copy only.make sure to show up for class cause he will drop if to many days are missed.

Great teacher, great class, great material! I took his class as a summer class and the work load is very reasonable. One Discussion board, one quiz and one assignment every week. Only one written paper at the end, but very easy. He works also with the Chandler PD so he has a tight schedule but he makes sure to communicate with the class every night

GREAT teacher! I was very impressed with the class, and felt that if you did what was expected, then it was an easy A. Ivan provides great examples and stories to go with the lesson, and also provided TONS of extra credit which was useful. I would highly suggest taking him!

Excellent professor!!! Not a lot of homework. There was one interview paper. Reading can be a little heavy but you really don?t need to do the readings to pass the class. I did because I enjoyed the subject. I got an A in his class.

The world could use more cops and teachers like Ivan. Easy going, straight forward, and somehow you still learn something. Easy A. And he is still a cop, so his material is always fresh. Plus, it's fun to watch him get tazed.

Ivan is a great instructor, not my favorite class, but if AJS is your thing than you will love it. Not much homework, just make sure you study for the tests.

Ivan can be a smart ass sometimes & make you feel dumb but only if you treat him that way, overall he's a good teacher & has a lot of good stories to tell. His gang unit guest speakers were HILARIOUS & his class is really easy. Overall a good teacher!

Professor Kaminsky is wonderful, always taking the time to make sure you fully understand the material and even giving his own personal stories to help better understand it in a real world setting.

Interesting classes, guest speakers, and a great field trip. This instructor is not on an ego trip like some of the Police Instructors. Instead he maintains control while making class enjoyable. He is respectful to all while going out his way to help. All you have to do is take notes, turn in assignments and study. Easy, I would take him again.
