"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Tom is a great professor who makes learning math simple. He breaks things down in a way that makes it easier to understand. Yes, he is loud and his vocabulary is that of a sailor, but he IS a great teacher. His tests are hard, and if you do not study for them you will fail. I have taken him before and plan on taking him again.

"Participation matters" "Clear grading criteria" "Skip class? You won't pass."

The absolute worst professor I've had. Constant yelling, makes students feel horrible and belittles them constantly. I highly recommend passing on this prof.

"Tough Grader" "Pop quiz master" "Tests are tough"

Pretty rude. Not interested in teaching. Prefers to spend his time bashing students. Hope you never get 10yr. Don't take this class, wait till next semester if u have too. I love school and hate him.

"Tests are tough" "Lectures are long" "Clear grading criteria"

If you are looking for an easy A stop and find a new teacher. Tom is brilliant, goes over every single step, crystal clear explanations on how to do the problems, BUT the material is hard and if you do not put in the time to do the homework and study for the tests you will not pass. He is kind of intimidating but he's a great teacher.

"Tests are tough" "Tough Grader" "Skip class? You won't pass."

This man is rude, condescending, and thinks he's funny. I got a 40% on the 1st test(which was better than three people around me). i did all the homework and never missed a class. I also felt confident going into the test. I dropped after getting a 20% on the second test. should've dropped sooner when i found out he does cross fit, teehee.

"Tough Grader" "Tests are tough" "Pop quiz master"

He's a decent teacher but is really tough on his students. His tests are extremely hard and I struggled to even catch on to his trickery. We never used the book, but we did all homework online. Oh and quizzes happen on the daily at least twice a day. So be ready for a million quizzes. He's super loud too (yells a lot), but will definitely help you.

Makes simple topics unccesarily hard. My class currently has a d average and on tests we average a high F. Absolutly unreasonable. Avoid at all costs!

I really enjoyed this class. Yea he can come off as self obsessed, but you get used to it. He tries to scare off slackers but once he does he is pretty chill. Picked on me a couple of times, but in the end was very kind one on one. BEWARE!!!! KEEP YOUR PHONES OFF!!!!!!I LEARNED THE HARD WAY, TWICE!!!!!!!!!DO ALL THE HOMEWORK, STUDY, not an easy A.

M15 Stats Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: D

This professor is a joke. I am an A student and I did not pass. His expectations for homework were unreasonable. No notes on exams. Had to memorize formulas. Exams did not reflect the material covered in class. I figured even though the reviews said not to take him, being the student that I am, that I would pass. Guess what, I didn't.

It's true, he can be an ass...but he explains things well. He will make fun of you if you're being a lazy student but at that point you kind of deserve it. He makes class interesting and enjoyable. I suck at math and with Tom I finally understand

He is mean in the beginning, but mellows out after the slackers drop. Just hang in there, because he is a great teacher! I learned so much in his class and I'm glad I stuck it out.

Ever wonder why there is always space in his class? No, it is not because it is a internet class. The reason is, he is a poor teacher. His tests are difficult, do not match with the HW. If he is your last option, do not, i repeat, do not take him. Wait a semester, and save your money. He tells the class most will fail or drop. Great motivator, NOT!

Stat Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Save your GPA or prepare to have a W. I studied, A LOT, went to the math lab, did the HW, showed up to class,and I could not pass his first 2 exams. I had to drop, and I devoted a ton of time to his course. Rude,smug, not helpful. Took Stats this semester with a new prof, and guess what? Got an A. I saved my 3.85GPA but took a W.

This class was alright. You definitely have to work hard and put in all effort to pass this class. He is very picky about how you show your work on tests/quizzes. Quiz at the beginning of each class. Do not take this class if you are looking for an easy A.

Took his stats class over the summer awhile back. He's a good teacher and a nice guy. You obviously need to put the work in. Pay attention, review your notes, do the homework, and you can get a good grade in the class.

Took him for Pre-calculus, very hard teacher. Said that more than half the class will fail, and always picks on people. He thinks he is a comedian and will call you out. Most Importantly his HW does not match the test what so ever!

I took him over a year ago or so. He was very difficult, math is not my strongest sub so I had to drop. Took it with another Profe, and passed with an A. I put my time, I studied hard and did not pass either of his 2 tests. I hold a 3.8 GPA and I struggled with him. Find another Profe.

Took his hybrid. He has office hours, VERY helpful. Stats is a hard class and if you're good at math, you may be good. I'm terrible so this was a struggle. Lots of work. Re-do your quizzes until they're perfect, do all homework, and get help when doing quizzes. Pay a lot of attention to memorizing formulas. Nice guy if you try hard.
