"Inspirational" "There for you" "Would take again"

What an amazing, humble and patient teacher. I wish all my professor's could channel their knowledge and enthusiasm as he does for students benefit. Must put in the work but holds your hand to support you the whole way. He has helped me get over my fear and even enjoy math. Prof Stiehl gave me all the resources needed to succeed!!

Returning back to college at 50 made me nervous. Prof Stiehl was the first professor I had. He is an excellent teacher that cares about the students understanding what he is teaching. He was always available before and after class. He answered email over all great guy.

Beginning Alg Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Prof Stiehl made math so easy for me. The Prof I had for prealgebra was so horrible that I was terrified about going into beginning algebra. In 5 min I learned what my prealgebra teacher couldn't clarify in a whole semester! Easy going, patient, awesome professor, definitely recommend him!

Math 135 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: C

I absolutely hate math however Professor Stiehl is great teacher. At the time I was juggling 3 other classes that required a lot of studying. I began struggling in math class because I was not skipping my homework and trying to play catch up with studying. I received a C in this class but anyone who is dedicated to studying can easily receive an A.

He is a regular comedian. You will learn a lot in that class unless you suck. if you do suck, he will pick on you, but don't worry its funny and hes only messing with you.

Had Beg. Algebra with him and it was my 3rd time taking it but he broke it down and gave it to you as easy as possible. It's a fun enjoyable enviorment. He teaches pretty much every math section so I would recommend him if he teaches the course you need. I'll be see him for the remander of my math classes you should too!

He is a great teacher. I hate math with a passion!!! He broke it down and made it fun. He has a great sense of humor! He gives you practice test which are great sudy aids. If you don't pass his class it's point blank you didn't study.
