In the beginning, I was very hopeful about doing well in Professor Quist's class, I can say that, his personality is nice and a good lecturer. He's very thorough and did provide examples. I was very confident that, I understood the material. However, on exam days, I never had enough time to finish those. The lectures and exams did not correlate each other. His an extremely tough grader too.
Professor Tucker-Gail was a horrible one. She gave us a take home exam, where we can only cite and use the textbook, plus her horrible notes. This is a 200 level class, where she expected way too much. The amount of work she gave us, were not even equivalent to the other two 4000 level class that I have. Possibly, he's one of the worst professors I've ever had.
Professor Koo's lectures were fun,very clear and organised. His assignments were very well designed and did help to reinforce our learning He's one of the best professor I've ever had. I will definitely take his class again.
Professor Cihonski's lecture is a boring presentation. He read his slides loudly rather than explaining about it. He won't upload his slides but, were allowed to take pictures of it. For me it doesn't make sense. De Anza College has no other professor available this fall quarter, so I have to drop it. I will not choose his class again.
Professor Yoshioka has an accent but, it's not that hard to understand her. Her little jokes were very funny and do cares on what she does. She will go over the concepts thoroughly. And if you have a question, she will go through it again. You will do well, if you attend her lectures. Paper results were discussed in class too. I can say that, she was a great professor for CSB353.
I took Professor Flores' class for the Spring of 2018. She's very funny, energetic, very humble and do cares about her students. Just pay close attention to her and surely you will pass. I will take her class again.
Obviously, Professor Gammel-Smith was not knowledgeable about her own material. Tests were given every week. Ten minutes for ten questions and half of those can't be found in the chapter. Relatively, it's an easy class, but the load of assignments were annoying. I will not take her class again.
Professor Wills relies heavily on discussion boards then will requires a ton of details about it. You must be very detailed oriented in this class. When it comes to quizzes, there were simple and short but weighed heavily. He take his time in grading. However, he will give one opportunity for extra credit at the end of course. Just remember that, what is only graded in class are the discussions and quizzes. So make sure to study.
Professor Hansen is arrogant, egotistical and will call people out in front of everyone, just for the smallest reason. In my opinion, he should not be teaching. Even if I will get paid, I will not take his class again.
Professor Kenyon is not a good choice if, you think or do things differently than other people. All of the homework and exams will be graded, based on how well you copy her style. There was a time when she gave me 84%, in a test of sixteen questions and a couple of bonuses. Reason was, I got wrong half of the problem, because I work differently. Also, there were two homework per week. What a very stressful class it is.
Professor Eastin did not follow the standardized grading scale 93% (A), which he admits what Portland State University recommended. He only informed us that he used different scale, after the course was completed. Mostly, he posted articles and relied on D2L for most grading. I can say that, he's one of those professors who's not very involved.
I was wrong when I thought that, Professor Frost can't be that bad while reading reviews about her. She made our exam 60% of our grade. She did not provide a study guide or even what topics should we focused on. There's a Math involved that is unnecessary, but for her it's important. Also, a lot of mandatory homework were given. I wished I dropped it. Do not take her class.
Professor Watson is really caring and knows his stuff! He is good at lecturing. The material can be difficult but you just need to go to his office hours. Gracie Tran was my TA and she was really helpful as well. The class makes you think differently about crime, but in a good way. The lectures will last all three hours.
I had Professor Turkan for three semesters for online classes. She is always available for questions almost any time. She is supportive, encouraging, and inspirational. I hope she will teach more classes so that I can have her again.
Professor Ryan is very knowledgeable and expects a lot from the students, which is understandable since it's Nursing. However, she is not approachable at all and has a terrible attitude. It's difficult to ask her questions because she makes you feel stupid for it. If you love nursing and are interested in L&D or Obstetrics, she will make you hate it all. She is AWFUL!
I am in one of Professor Wilson's online classes and it is the worst online class I have had so far. He didn't bother updating the syllabus for the current semester, he takes days to reply to emails, sends out broken links, uploads wrong solutions to work sheets, there was HTML code in a quiz. Don't even bother with the lecture videos, just use the text book. He is an awful teacher.
