"Skip class? You won't pass." "Hilarious" "Lectures are long"

Entertaining and engaging in class. I found material dry however he made class better. I only had to write two papers and received A's on both. It is not hard to do well if you show up for class, do the readings and pay attention in class which is what you pay to be there for anyway. :)

"There for you" "Skip class? You won't pass." "Respected by students"

Dr. Peetush is passionate about teaching, and really cares about his students. He explains concepts clearly, and is a fair marker. Covers a lot of material that's not in the readings. Overall, a great prof.

Very kind man. His lectures are very confusing and his final exam was completely terrible, it dropped my mark from an 85 to 80 BUT he was willing to help when I told him my dilemma. I rarely went to class because most of the material was discussed in the seminar. He was funny in his lectures and tried to keep the class engaged. Overall a nice man

Okay I was very confused the whole class- every class, BUT Dr. Peetush is SO nice, kind and caring and he ROCKS as a person. He giggles just like the Dhali Lama. Love him :)

PP110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

A lot of students do not like him or his teaching style. I did. He is very passionate and gets excited about the concepts he is explaining. If he catches you talking or texting he will stop the lecture and make an effort to publicly embarrass you. He's a rude awakening to university for students who received special treatment in high school.

One of the best I've had in four years at Laurier. Really loves what he teaches and those he teaches. After our final test he gave everyone individual thanks and regards. Very serious about his classes, so please leave your phone and laptop off. Paying attention will pay off b/c (even making a tangent) Peetush will make you think. Thanks Professor.

This prof was amazing, really inspired me, I loved how much I learned. He goes on a lot of tangents but is really passionate. No slides or anything, so attendance is mandatory, but it's a really great time.

Ashwani is a great professor. Mildly depressed that the class is over. Only class that I regret missing a lecture for.

N-ever thought that I would be mildy depressed after a course ended. I can't believe its actually over. PP220 was the best course I had taken throughout my university education. Ashwani is a great professor. Definitely going to take some of his other courses in the near future.

I absolutely adored having him as a professor. He is so engaging in class, and he is extremely helpful outside of class. He really know his stuff and wants all his students to understand his lectures to the fullest!

Great professor! Extremely helpful with the topics. Make sure to go to his classes! This is where you learn the most.

He's really cute. And he does a great job of teaching the concepts/testing on things that were taught. He's also quite funny and engaging. He might have a little bit of a philosophy inferiority complex. He is always defending/advocating for philosophy as a major, and insulting other departments. He may have experienced some teasing in the past.

This prof really cares, he spent 2 hrs going over how to apply to law school with me, and then even helped me to write a letter of intent. He's a encouraging, helpful and very kind man.

PP110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Peetush is a hard case. He is very clear in concepts, especially for those with no philosophy background. He also gives great examples and gets the class very involved. However, he is far too strict. He takes things which aren't a big deal (like walking into class two minutes late) and makes them into a huge deal. Not for everyone.
