Hardest professor in the COM department. Only two people passed the midterm, he gave a retake and the class average went down. Funny guy but very hard to pass his class. Avoid Leatham at all costs.

He is a very hard teacher. I dont know how I passed really. He canceled some classes so he can got to practice in some play. DONT USE A CELL IN HIS CLASS!! He will embarass you infront of the class :-) He is never at his office hours. Dont get discouraged if you do bad on the exams. Kick butt on your final paper and you will pass. I give him a C+

One of the worst classes I have ever taken. Was able to explain individual concepts (some of which were pretty difficult) very well but I never really got the overall picture. He was almost impossible to reach outside of class for help and changed the time of the final exam 3 times which was very frustrating.

Don't believe the pic - Leatham isn't that much of a dork in real life. :P He's a great professor though; very smart, keeps you interested and ultimately he gives feedback that's fair and helpful. Hates rudeness and plagiarism, but if those are things you're into, you probably shouldn't be in college anyways. Definitely take his class if you can

Man this guy challenged me. He is living proof that if you deliver what you are asked you will pass. He does not play games. All students should have him at some point or another because you learn a thing or two about yourself and how you conduct yourself in the classroom. By the way if you are a chatterbox do not take his class.

i dreaded going to com100, but he made it so fun! it's a lot of work, a lot of time, but it's definitely worth it. it goes by faster though if you take it in the summer. i definitely recommend him as a teacher.

The class itself sucks. Really boring material but he realizes that and tries to make it interesting. Hes pretty down to earth but is def. a challenging prof. Tests are pretty hard and he's really unorganized so you need to be on top of your game. Worth taking a class with him though.

and, i just need to add... I don't know how professors can put up with such whiney brats. He sucks because expects you to act like an adult, not hand-hold through an assignment? Your rant offers no helpful critique about his course "he sucks, we all hated him." Geoff, if you read this site, ignore the idiots. please. -MT

He sucks. My whole class hated him, except the brown nosers who only liked him bc he liked them. He is a horrible teacher with a horrible method. He does not explain anything clearly. He refuses to help students on particular assignment. I would never recommend anyone taking his class. He was by far the worst teacher I have experienced at URI

He was definitely a challenging professor but had an effective style of presentation and teaching that motivated me to do my best in his class.

He is challenging teacher, but one of the best I've had yet. Myself, as well as the majority of my class learned so much. He makes going to class fun and his lectures are very entertaining (he acts when he's not teaching so hes very animated). Definitely take him if you can!

I have heard Prof. Leatham's Research Methods course is much more difficult, but Business Comm is a class barely anyone knows about and it is by far the most valuable class I have taken yet! He's a good teacher, and does not hesitate to let students out early now and then.

Leatham will make you work - but you learn so much and I loved the class. The actual subject could be so boring but he makes it fun. Personally, I would rather have a class where I had to do some work, but was kept awake. He's also one of the smartest professors at URI and will be a great resource for you in the future.

Brilliant, energetic, funny & down to earth. If you want to think and be challenged, take his class. He will keep you entertained and you won't even realize that you are learning. If you are childish and lazy it's not the place for you. My mentor and role model. Geoff is a really phenomenal person!

Great professor! I had him back in my undergrad. He is a demanding professor, but I learned a lot, I took about 3 courses with him. I enjoyed it.
