He is awful. You can't understand him, he's inconsistent, go goes on random tangents all the time, he is straight up rude to students, and makes you redo drawing 5 billion times for irrelevant things and then still tell you its wrong anyway. Do not take him, you will regret it.

he is very nice but there is a language barrier. what he tries to explain is not what it comes off as. you will redo your drawings 4381295721 times and still not know what he wants

Has the best of intentions, but should spend the rest of his career 'inventing' things outside of the classroom. Not consistent, ever. Tells you to redesign your project and in the next class wonders why you changed a thing. Totally not helpful in defen

UNCLEAR UNCLEAR UNCLEAR UNCLEAR UNCLEAR UNCLEAR, GEEEEESH!!! How many times do I have to say it?? Speaks in English, but his thought processes are in Martian. We need a textbook because your explanations of what we need to do just don't cut it.

U'll learn nothing, be totally confused the whole time. not about learning, it's about listening 2 Alex tell u he's great. he marks ur stuff & says how awful it is. prepare to redo it endlessly, makes him feel important because he sucks so bad

Although I agree with most of the comments listed, I do believe he is a very good teacher. He knows what he is talking about and wants all his students to succeed. During your crits, he will be the first one to come to your defense.

He genuinely cares about students, but after he gets done trying to relate his point about ur project to one of his revolutionary designs, u're left dazed and confused. Interupts u, assumes what u're going 2 say, doesn't listen well with others
