"Respected by students" "Tough Grader" "Hilarious"

If you are taking Stats 201 take Brian!! He is the best professor at UT hands down. He is very helpful if you have questions and also if you don't think you've been graded correctly he will fix it or explain why it was graded that way. You have a lot of online homework but its doable, and you have 3 projects about 2 weeks before every test.

"Would take again" "There for you" "Big time extra credit"

Brian is the way to go with STAT 201. If you take Brian's class, there should be no reason for you to not come away with AT LEAST a 'B'. Statistics is not an easy topic, yet Brian is willing to help at all times. He gives extra credit too for participating, so take advantage of the opportunity. It is not hard to make an 'A'. Great guy, take Brian!

Brian is the man. Classes are always interesting and productive. He is a very passionate lecturer who actually cares whether you are learning. The bulk of the work is done online and if you have trouble finishing the work he has videos of how to do them on his YouTube channel. Make sure to take Brian for stats.

"Would take again" "There for you"

If you take Stats 201, Prof. Stevens is the prof.. Tons of office hours, wants students to succeed and is entertaining. His one weakness is actually his strength. He is so intelligent and knowledgable, he forgets some of his students don't know the material, which makes his lectures unclear. Great professor!

STAT 320 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Seriously the best professor at UTK by far. Take him if you get the chance just to meet the guy. He doesn't take attendance but gives out extra credit all the time, so go to class. No textbook, either. He's a super down to earth guy and will joke around and really truly help you if you just go to him and ask for it.

Brain Stevens is in the top 3 teachers I have had in my entire life. The material he is teaching is not easy, but the way he teaches and simplifies it makes it very simple to get an A. Brian Honestly cares about his students he responds within an hour to emails and has spent much time making homework how to videos. Best choice is to TAKE BRIAN!!!!!

Brian cares very much about his students. He makes it clear what will be on his tests. He tries to be as clear during lecture as possible. He answers emails ASAP and he always has a review session before his tests. I highly recommend him.

Brian is really weird guy and got on my nerves in class alot, but with that said he went above and beyond to help his students. He was so helpful in office hours and extra help videos. Not my favorite lecturer but overall a great stats teacher compared to all others I've heard about. Gives a lot of extra credit and actually responds to emails!

What an incredible professor! I'm not even kidding. I could rave about this dude for days. He is so engaging with students, passionate about what he's teaching, and is just a fun person to be around! It doesn't hurt that he's pretty good looking too. If you have to take stats, TAKE BRIANS CLASS!! You will not regret it.

Brian is a really fantastic teacher. I have never had a professor that cares about his students as much as he does. He is SO eager to help people understand the material. Stats is overall kind of confusing but it makes it a lot more bearable if you have a teacher that you feel comfortable asking questions to. I would HIGHLY recommend taking him.

He is a nice guy, but he's a HORRIBLE teacher. He expects you to know everything already and doesn't explain anything clearly. Since he doesn't make the exams they are very difficult so I ended up failing them. DO NOT TAKE HIM IF YOU HATE MATH.

Brian is an amazing instructor. He is always willing to help. He gives a test review almost exact to his test. He gives all the extra credit you need for the class. He extendeds deadlines if you need extra time. He sincerly cares about how his students do in his class. I used to go to his office hours any time I had just to chill and do my work. A+

STATS 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A-

The best professor in the history of ever. He gets everyone warmed up with some type of entertainment courtesy of YouTube before he starts lecture so being a few minutes late is never a problem. I was deathly afraid of taking Stats, but now I'm about to take another stats class! He offers plenty of extra credit opportunities. You must take him!

Think of the coolest professor youve ever had in your entire life and then multiply that by 1000 and thats Brian. He is so relatable and funny. He tells great stories and shows a passion for teaching. He will help you in anyway he can and wants everyone to be very successful in the class. He gives extra credit points to so take advantage of those!

Brian is the best! He actually e-mails you back and posts homework videos of himself walking you through it. He said his students always have the highest test grades in the entire stats department. Don't take any other teacher!

This man very well could be the most genuine professor I have ever had. He honestly cares a lot about his students and their drive to succeed. I had Brian for the mini term and I was unable to attend class for the last part of the term and he did a great job of communicating with me through email to answer any questions I had. He's the man!
