Really nice guy. Very helpful, there if you need him. He wants you to do good and does what he can to make that happen.

Worst ever. Limited English, bad handwriting, no social skills. Mad because his job is teaching Statics at SFSU. Big talk on what a great Fluid Dynamics expert he is. Talks down to us because we're not at UC or Stanford. Weekly rant topics included suicide, nuclear war, and serial killers. No …more Statics content beyond solutions copied from book. less

Avoid. No substantial lectures, just a combination of ranting and copying SAMPLES from the book with no explanation of ideas. Very poor english, bad writing(sigma looks like G), terrible drawings(had to bring the textbook to class to follow along). Tests are closed book with a 1 page cheat …more sheet. Homework and tests are mostly unrelated less

People who are good at things aren't always good at teaching. He seems like a good engineer, but he shouldn't be teaching engineers. There is nothing you can learn from him that you couldn't learn on your own except not to take his class. Copies examples from book! Tests aren't like whats written …more on board or what he teaches which are the examples less

While Dr. Tan's demeanor and presentation have improved, his methods and grading criteria are still weak. Lectures are him showing off his math chops with proofs and derivations beyond class scope. But exams are application-based, an area which Tan struggles to explain. Summarized in his own words …more "I pretend to teach, and you pretend to learn." less

I think he is a good engineer but for sure not a good teacher. He expects everyone to know the stuff before he even teaches. He copies the examples from the book and does not even elaborate on those examples. Please avoid taking him.

Here is how he curves (at least for me in dynamics), he took my course final grade and made that score my test average (same for midterms and final) and then for all the home work assignments that I turned in he set the score to 100%.
