Comment:
Lectures were amazing! They were easy to understand and he stopped for people to ask questions. He offered extra credit every class if you had your camera on, which is the main factor of my good grade in his class. Tests were reasonable, but you have to read the book and take notes to pass. He was a great guy, I highly recommend.

Really enjoyed his psy 120 class! He made it really easy. There was a quiz and discussion almost every week and four exams. The exam you scored lowest on is dropped. Attendance is mandatory!! Its most of the grade. I found it awesome that you get extra credit everytime you make yourself visible on zoom. Hard to not pass his class.

The Professor really knows his material (He wrote the book) There was a problem with students being disrespectful and trying to run the class. There was a leader in this effort. But this was not the professors fault. He really tried to run a great class and he is willing to help those who want to learn. Extra credit work is given.

I learned a wealth of information and enjoyed every class meeting. He is clear, just read the syllabus. And you should be prepared for the exams if you listen to what he says and use his lecture schematics. Definitely the best class i took that semester

Vic is a genuinely nice guy who wants his students to learn. Classes are taught via powerpoint with the book being helpful for summaries and review sections. Ask questions and be involved and he will have a good time along with you and the class will thrive.

I am interested in learning the skills in my empathy class however the classroom environment can be outright uncomfortable at times. The teacher blames the uncomfortable atmosphere on his students being distracting, but what is more distracting is the 15-30 minutes he spends ranting about someone bringing out their phone or arriving late.

Comment:
He's okay. Seems like a nice guy at times and at other times is unexpectedly irritable. The class is interesting enough and he seems to really know his stuff, but is prone to long-winded rants about student shortcomings (when it comes to paying attention or arriving on time) which can be understandable but feel misdirected/passive-aggressive.

I like him! He really cares about students situation. He gave five extra credit homework. His test was not very difficult, except the second one... but he gave us 20 bunus for it because he felt sad about that. His class was very interesting and well-organized. I recommend you read the textbookand do the multiply choices. Really useful!

Hes so funny and the material is pretty straightforward you just have to study for the tests. He gives an overall 25 points of extra credit which really can help you since there are only the 4 exams being graded I recommend taking this class!

Best prof ever! Failed PSY120 last semester so I decided to retake it with him. His lectures are amazing and does such a good job at explaining the material. The second exam is known to have a class avg of a F so beware. If you attend lectures and study the chapter quizzes in the book, the other exams should be easy. He has a great sense of humor!

I love Vic! He makes his lectures really interesting, and relates them to everyday life so you really get the concept. He also loves his dog, and will talk about him in class. Grading is purely from tests, but as long as you attend class, read the chapter reviews, and go over key terms from the text, it's an easy A. Offers a lot of extra credit.

Vic is a genuinely nice person. At times he can be blunt, but I can tell that most of the time he means well. He likes making friends and cares about whatever is going on in your life if you talk to him about it. He wrote the textbook and knows the material very well, and he expects his students to read the textbook because of its valuable info.

All the classes consist of him lecturing the whole time, so if you are not a fan of lectures, this class is not for you. He always asks if anyone has any questions and tries to answer in a way youd understand. Read the textbook!! You are only graded by your tests and extra credit if you do it. He can be funny at times and very witty.

Vic is amazing. So personable. One of the kindest professors I've ever had. Your entire grade is based off of 4 exams and one final. The lowest test score gets dropped and he offers much extra credit. Show up for class in order to get all the info from the lectures. DO THE PRACTICE PROBLEMS IN THE TEXTBOOK. He uses them on test. Overall, wonderful.

Not the best teacher in the world, but very nice man. Tests are HARD and he does not do his best to prepare you for them, almost all kids in my class wouldn't get higher than a D on the test, 5 tests total, lowest dropped, 35 points max of extra credit.. would definitely recommend a different teacher.

Such a sweet and caring professor. He really wants you to understand the material. Could get a bit boring at times but his compassion made up for it. I'll be taking his empathy class next semester! Psych 180

Vic is really nice and a great prof. Gives you outlines which are good for notes. Your grade is based on tests which are reasonable and easy if you review the material + he's drops the lowest grade. He makes learning the material very entertaining! There also opportunities for extra credit. You can tell he's passionate and wants you to pass.
