Mike is a great guy but teaching may not be his thing. He says one thing and the syllabus says another. It is hard to understand what Mike wants when he doesn't even know himself. Mike lectures but moves too fast to catch everything he says, yet it is all very important for the final. If he used …more ppts, class would be better. less

Horrible teacher. He is a nice guy but is probably the worst teacher I've had so far. He is biased with his grading and when you go to him for help outside of class he is just as confusing as in class. He lectures but talks too fast. His final is cumulative with no study guide.

He's nice but makes unreasonable deadlines for major papers,then extends the deadline so you stress out longer about it. Doesn't lectural in a clear manner talks too fast,doesn't emphasize what should be known for the final, puts topics on the final that weren't discussed well in class. It's …more challenging material especially with his teaching style less

This professor is arrogant and at times condescending. When students ask him questions in class his is vague with his answers. Students are not given clear instructions for assignments. He shows little empathy toward students which is strange since his profession is social work. He needs a new …more profession. Just an awful teacher try and avoid him at all costs. less

Mike is a terrible teacher. He is condescending to students, jumps around on topics even when using power points, unclear in the material covered and quite frankly he is a smart ass. Do not take him if you want to enjoy Social Work, he will ruin the experience for you.

Mike has it out for students. I honestly believe he wants students to fail. He will try to get students for plagiarism and is a complete ****. He is the worst example of a social worker and he must enjoy breaking students down and making them feel useless to fill the void of his past failures.

It's really not fair to say that Mike is a terrible teacher. He prepares you for graduate school. He is tough, but fair. He will work with you on grades if you provide a good case. He doesn't tolerate crap, like many of the other SW professors. The lectures and assignments are not pointless, …more although they could seem it at the time. less

He is AWFUL! He has favorite students and if you aren't his favorite he makes your life hell. I honestly believe he wants students to fail. He is unjust with his grading and is never available when students need him.

Had him for an 8am which was bad enough but he was lively enough to help us stay awake. He was fair on grading and extremely helpful. If you email him a question he goes out of his way to answer it fully. I think he was great and I recommend him to anyone needing to take 3850, although hopefully it …more won't be at 8am. less

I don't know what you guys are talking about, Mike was fabulous! He made class interesting and his grading was fair. He was always available for questions and he made his expectations for assignment clear.
