Comment:
If you want a professor who will give it to you straight, then Jeff is your guy. The class is centered around self-teaching among groups. There are lengthy projects that he is deeply picky about. If you show him you want to learn, he is easier going about things, but he will never coddle you. Not my type of professor, but maybe someone else's.

jeff is really scary during class. he gets angry when people are confused. if you go to his office hours you will do a lot better. basically, they are mandatory bc if you don't go you will almost fail. there isn't daily hw but there are group projects which are always confusing but not graded.

Comment:
Im convinced this dude has never taught in a children's classroom in his life. he is heavily dependent on the lab manual and just says "get to work." I wish someone could have told me this before I signed up for his course. it is very difficult. he also has us work in groups 6ft apart... you can imagine how difficult this is... I hate this class.

Comment:
Jeff was very encouraging to us as future teachers and seems to really respect the profession. Thats about the only nice thing I have to say though. Very snarky, office hours are MANDATORY, you teach yourself and your group members as well. Will downright rip you a new one, and then you get a halfway decent grade. Very stressful, very discouraging

I absolutely love Jeff! I took Math 140 and 141 with him. His class is definitely a different experience. There is no HW but these weekly questions. He doesn't just straight up give you the answers to the lessons. You work in groups to help bounce ideas and figure it out. He ALWAYS does a wrap-up at the end. He is VERY accessible outside of class!

I took this class not knowing that corona virus would affect it however. In the beginning everything seemed pretty easy, but it gets harder and you have to study. His officer hours was also really late till almost 1am on Monday night!! Also when everything became digital we were literally teaching math to yourself and the exams were unreasonable.

Jeff's classes are hard- he wants his students to understand ideas, not memorize. LOVES participation. He wants you to figure things out, but NEVER expects you to figure it out alone. Emails back FAST, and answers questions for hours. Best with specific questions. He cares SO MUCH, but sucks at recognizing emotion. He is never, ever mad at you.

Took his Elm Education Math course and struggled with the work load. He is a harsh grader who wants things done his way. Do not miss class or you will fall far behind.

Jeff is by far, the worst professor I've ever had and nearly ruined my college experience. Extremely condescending to those who aren't on his good side / do not attend his late office hours. Publicly humiliated me on several occasions in class and before exams. I've spoken about him with other professors who have heard the same about him. Avoid.

I was once in your place scrolling through jeffs rate my professor and thinking ill survive. YOU WILL NOT. The absolute worst professor at Geneseo. Extremely rude, all of the work is nonsense. He does not give constructive criticism he will just tell you youre stupid. Also doesnt believe in giving As.

This professor is passive aggressive, rude, and is irritated quickly. His attitude shows through the emails I received asking a question. In class he doesn't teach, you have to do the textbook readings he assigns and learn from them on your own. He's also very picky on explanations in problem sets and doesnt teach you how he wants you to explain it

If I was able to I would write a full essay on how bad he is. This class was by far the worst class I have taken. He teaches for a total of 10 minutes of the class expecting you to get and understand the solutions. Participating is mandatory there were a few times where he would just stare and wait for me to raise my hand to call on me. DO NOT TAKE

The absolute worst experience of my college career. Horrific teacher, lacks all communication skills. He is extremely rude and does not know how to give constructive criticism in the slightest way. The only way you will pass the class if you attend every office hour session. He does not believe in giving A's. Seriously drop the class asap!!!!!

Jeff acts as if he wants you not to understand the material. His grading criteria is unclear and seemingly arbitrary. When you go to him in office hours he often refuses to help you understand the material as "That would prevent you from truly learning". He has a nice holiday party though.

Teaches nothing. He just gives chapter readings for hw and then asks the class what they thought of it instead of a lesson. He thinks way to highly of himself and is condescending when you ask for help. The textbook dictates his class and he is to lazy to do anything that isn't right out of it. An online class would be better than taking his class.

This class is 90% group work, tediously figuring out ways to find answers to questions instead of him teaching. Although the weekly questions didn't sound like a lot the first day, THEY ARE TIME CONSUMING. Johannes has super high expectations. You much show up to class and participate daily. I worked hard & this class still managed to kill my GPA.

Rude and condescending. Will not help you at all, honestly enjoys that his students do not understand whats going on. Does not even teach, the whole class is just the students teaching themselves and each other while he stands in the front of the room being creepy. Awful experience with this professor. Will never take a class with him again.

Jeff is a tough professor that has high expectations for his students. He can come off as rude and unsympathetic but if you can get past that he isn't awful. To do well in the class you need to be willing to put in the time in/out of class and don't get discouraged or offended when working with Jeff. You spend most of the class working in a group.
