I love Maniates. He is extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the FS topic. He is witty but not too playful, and gets the message across. I love this type of discussion based learning. He gets you to think for yourself but help each other grow too. Its amazing.

Hes extrememly funny and witty. He will always go out of his way to help you if you go talk to him. He cares about his students. He is a hard grader sometimes but he really helps you improve your writing abilities and tells you how to help yourself. I got a lot out of his classs

He is a great professor, however, I sometimes find it difficult to follow his notes. Just read all the assigned work and you should be on top of it. Do not let it pile up though...

He is very enthusiastic and his enthusiasm keeps the class awake and interested. Some of his jokes are a little dated, but I am willing to help him with that. I love it when he draws on the wall with chalk. He is a good teacher and if he rubs you the wrong way you are probably a math major with some sort of boredom fetish.

He is an excellent professor, engaging and knowledgable. But he is an egotistical prick, but that does not detract from his overall teaching ability, which is impressive.

enthusiastic doesnt begin to describe how he drags even the most depressed student into his discussion. very willing to help, and although grading is difficult, he uses it to help teach you more, not put you down. he is very forgiving and one of the best teachers at this college.

Enthusiatic enough to get you into the class, and then to punt your grade into the trash when he feels like it. He'll tell you a lot in class, and even more about how bad a student you are on papers.

Comment:
Maniates is a great guy. He is very willing to help you, but you get the feeling that he has some hidden motive to bite you in the back. He tries to make everything easy/fair, but sometimes ends up making things more difficult. Very accessable, but I felt as though too much of the grade was dependant on tests (if you blow one you are dead).

Best professor I've had so far. A lot of reading but definitely worth it. He uses the class time very effectively to maximize the amount of material learned while always explaining everything so clearly.

He knows what he is talking about, makes sure the students know whats going on and finally is as clear as crystal. A great guy, the classes are always amusing. The only downside is he expects you to do your best...means hes a bit hard but worth it.

Maniates dazzels intro students, but when it comes down to it he is not a good professor to work with. He is ague in his assignments and does NOT care about you, though he does a good job of faking it. Don't have him as a comp reader or you WILL regret it.

Incredibly passionate, thinks outside the box, and encourages free thinking. Loved the courses, the content, and the structure. Fostered and promoted class interaction but still managed to get through the required lecture material. How does he do it
