Comment:
Professor Otway was one of the best in YU's math department. He was lucid, organized, and good at explaining tough topics. Lecture was never boring because of his dry, but sharp, humor. He will be missed.

Not the easiest material or the most clear professor, but tries to help students as much as he can. Very personable and easygoing. I have a good relationship with him and am very happy to have it.

Comment:
Straightforward. Everything is from textbook. I advise going to class he gives stuff away for tests and tells you what you don't need to know for tests. Probably better than most math teachers in YU but doesn't really say much. Just writes textbook onto the board in class. A lot of self teaching. Nice guy and really funny too

Good teacher. Knows the material well. Tests are very straightforward from HW's and notes. Need to put in work to do well - but easy to get A. Would recommend for any math course.

He makes the class very enjoyable, very funny. Often, he isn't prepared and he makes a mistake, gets thrown off, and students end up clueless. But he's extremely fair and understanding, would take him again anyday.

Guys I am begging you to nott take this Otway guy's astronomy class! Just like this other person said- I dont know how he is in his math classes, but if you are planning on taking astronomy, DONT!!!! it is rediculous and youll learn nothing and then take difficult tests that have nothing to do with what you studied! everyone felt this way!

A quality professor who favors use of detailed diagrams and avoids making class into 90 minutes of symbols on chalkboard. It would be really nice if he'd teach real math courses.

Explains everything clearly and precisely. I would take anything he is teaching. Although not an easy teacher, Prof. Otway is fair and understanding and sincerely loves his students and wants them to do well.
