I really enjoyed Tom's class! He loves the subject and it is so clear that he does. This makes it that much easier to show up and read his lectures. The class was online, and he posted about 2 lectures per week to read. There was a total of 4 writing assignments that make up the grade. If you give your responses in-depth thought, you will do well.

Amazing professor! Very understanding yet strict. I respect him because he always reaches out to any email! I would recommend this class, very easy to follow the lecture and there are only 8 assignments which were all very compelling.

This class was the single best class I've taken in my life. It changed how I saw the world, and Tom was certainly the best professor/teacher I've had. He answers questions well and is willing to work with you. His passion for sociology is evident and he's not just there for a paycheck. I think he genuinely cares about student success.

Mr. Soltis gives amazing feedback to the class after you complete the weekly assignments. The material was so interesting and I really enjoyed the class, so much that I would take it again just to have him. He will work with you if you work with him! I really loved his class and how he taught.

He made the class very interesting and understandable as an entry level sociology course. The class was only graded on the papers that were graded, but the grading scale is based on the grades of our class, so it was quite fair. Stay caught up on the lectures and assignments and you'll be golden.

He brought so much energy and passion for sociology in the classroom with him in class. His lectures are very informative and he is able to get his point across very clearly. Dr. Soltis is a great professor and would highly recommend him. He may come off a little strong with his energy , but he'll grow on you.

I really wish that I would've taken a class of his sooner than my last semester. I would've taken another class of his just to take it. He is so passionate about what he teaches, doesn't cause you to have anxiety over the class, and is ridiculously attractive.

Tom was hands down the BEST teacher I've had in my two years at WCCC. His lectures are extremely interesting, especially once you get to feral children, and it is clear that he is passionate about sociology. Grades are based on writing assignments that are a breeze if you pay attention in class. Would absolutely take Dr. Soltis again.

He is one of my all time favorite professors. He made class very exciting and he was so passionate about sociology. I loved it so much that I even considered sociology as a major after taking this class. He is a really fun guy and will make you look forward to coming to class. On a side note, don't use your phone in class, he WILL kick you out.

Comment:
Not a professor you want to have for an online class. The introductory sociology course was treated more like an independent study with very little direction or guidance from this instructor. Gives no feedback on written assignments. It's a good thing that I am not pursuing a career in sociology, otherwise I would feel slighted by this experience.
