he is the most useless teacher i've ever met. when he actually bothered to show up to class (which was rare), his lectures were so unclear and difficult to follow, it was absolutely pointless. i was so lost the entire semester. DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS!!!

His teaching method has left me to learn NOTHING. His notes are words on a paper that lead you to just read the textbook to understand what he is talking about and he doesn't give proper notice of assignments. He speaks in a mumble and covers his mouth while speaking. One of the worst teachers I have ever had.

Almost never responds to e-mails form students. Not friendly teacher at all. Final exam questions were very hard to understand. Didn't give enough time for written mid-term at all.

Seary is a very intelligent man. Should he be teaching...no. His lectures are unclear and they do not follow any structure. I have never been in a class and felt like I have learnt nothing. Not to mention his expectations for tests are ridiculous.

He know's his stuff however he comes off angry all the time and I didnt really like that, I want the professor to be friendly and seem like he likes us (pretend at least) serious, yes sarcastic at times. My class made a facebook group and tested each other before midterms ect. and it helped a ton!! I defiantly recommend it. Good Luck

Seary is a beast. The man wrote a 348 page Ph.D paper - he knows his stuff. Challenging, helpful, and forgiving, he's someone that wants you to learn. Do the readings (yes, all of them), participate, and you wont just get a good grade, but you'll learn something too. He's too hard if you're lazy like I am. Much respect.

He is a decent teacher. Seems sarcastic and does not like it when any sociology methods are challenged. Seems a little snobby. Sometimes I disagree with some of the things he says but that is life I suppose. He can be sarcastic and unprofessional but if you accept what he is saying as the end all be all then you should do fine in his course.

With his depth of knowledge, life experience, and enthusiasm for sociological theory, Seary has inspired me to dig deeper - I only hope more professors are like him. Folks who rate negatively are simply clueless and looking for a free ride. If you want a genuine education show up, do the work, and you will benefit. Big time. Highly Recommended!!

Dr. Seary knows what he's talking about. Some might complain that he speaks in a monotone voice, but his speciality is not in a dramatic performance, but rather the content. He relates the topics to heart wrenching stories from his own life, and puts something personal into every lecture. The exams are tough but fair, and he hints what's on them.

Jesse Seary's teaching methods are different , he teaches from his own knowledge rather than the book , his 2 tests, may be challenging but if you put in the effort it should be fine , NEVER miss a class, notes are helpful for the exams , overall not a bad professor.

Speaks in a monotone voice, only teaches from his notes, very boring class. Don't even bother buying his books other than the one for the online assignment. His office hours are stupid (2 hours a week). His grades consisted only of 3 midterms and the online assignments + attendance (which account for 15% of the grade). Glad class is done with.

I took 1121 with Dr.Eisler and much preferred her teaching methods. He speaks in the most monotone voice and makes sociology seem so mundane, which is rather unfortunate since I was thinking of majoring in sociology. Hard marker.

Dr. Seary is a really helpful prof. Make sure to attend ALL THE CLASSES as most of his exam questions are based from the notes. The video's he shows are actually interesting. Oh, and did I mention hes a BABE.

Jesse is a great teacher. His exams may be difficult, but they are very fair. His main focus is on teaching his students the concepts, not memorization. Know your concepts, attend EVERY class- & you'll do extremely well. He marks very fairly.

80% of exams are based on his lectures. What's the point in buying a $120 textbook and a $50 book of readings then? His notes are nearly incomprehensible because he only puts the headings of the topics he is discussing. His voice is monotone and he tends to mumble a lot when he lectures. It makes it very difficult to concentrate especially at 8:30a

Awesome prof! very fair. highly educated! and so goodlooking!! he doesnt smile much... but wen he does.. OH MY GOD! for the rest of you that dont think hes hard or boring or whatever... its probably because you just dont get sociology and thats your fault. You have to work hard in his class and in the end it will pay off!

A pretty good teacher. Lectures can be a little tedious but most of the time he is interesting. His marking is surprisingly strict for his laid back attitude, but it's not hard to pass. You don't HAVE TO attend, but if you don't make sure to get notes!
