"Participation matters"

I believe he is good master in his own study, but not a good teacher, despite his accent which is not very easy to understand, sometimes he use participation to threaten student stay and hearing to him. The content he teach is not useful and understandable. I suggest the student if choose his course be preparing to study by own self.

ADMS 4541 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This prof makes this 4th year level course a joke. Almost every student was saying how bad of a prof he was. Pretends to be nice but isn't. He may be a smart guy but he was very unfair in marking and not committed to attending class. Showed up late for all classes and even the midterm exam

ADMS3531 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Almost the worst prof I have ever met in york. I have no choice but to take his course cuz i need to take 3531 during summer term and he was the only prof. Cannt speak proper English and cannot understand the questions at all. Avoid the prof, seriously. He's doing nothing during the lecture but turning over his slides.

ADMS 3531 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He usually spends much time on talking irrelevant things and repeats the same thing next class. If we wish to learn sth, you'd better not take courses with him. However, he is a good marker and his exams are very easy. If he teaches one course alone (not with other professors), you will be very lucky, coz he will makes the course very easy to lean.

I am astonished by what a high rating he has. This guy is completely useless and cannot teach. If you enroll in his class your better off studying the material yourself.

Reads off the slides and you can't understand him when he tries to actually explain some of the concepts. He goes through the material too fast, assuming you've already studied it and his accent doesn't make it any easier. Also, he tells too many non related stories during the lecture.

I studies on my own. He has too strong accent. Do not take his course if you consider your GPA.

he is a really nice man but i honestly feel like i didn't learn anything from him! I self learned alot at home from the textbook. he rushes over important things and takes forever on some. He was often unhelpful and vague.

He doesnt teach anything during the class, and actually skips over most of the slides and says 'you can learn this on your own'. He is so full of himself, and talks about his MANY degrees all through out class. If he is asked a ques, he just says refer to the outline. DO NOT take a course with him, you will be stuck learning everything on your own.

He's the worst I've ever met at York. He'll expect you to to nothing other than remembering everyting in the book--word by word, or you will get nothing even though you explain the material in your own sentence. I got 64/100 in the 1st midterm and I'm still in the top 10 in the class---He got the lowerst average through sections!!

One of the best professors at York. He has taught in many universities around the world and so he has many experiences to share with his students. Very approachable, kind, dedicated to his subject. Not only is he trained in law but rumours has it that he has a Ph.D in physics, a medical degree and an MBA. Best prof at yorku.

Not very good at explaining things but overall an approachable guy. There is mostly right or wrong answers so the marking scheme is pretty much hard. He will help you, if you ask for it but don't go to discuss the exam, he will not do anything.
