This guy is great. I had him for my ESL lecture but he ended up helping me with my lab more than my own lab professor. No matter when you email him, he will always get back to you with a quick response that answers your question!

His class is very easy, he grades the exams very well, the class averages were in the high eighties. I found that i needed to teach myself the content before the exam. His in class examples are much harder then the exam questions. Just be careful since the class is almost all exam scoring.

Pourmovahed was a super easy grader... if you want to get through solids with an A he's the teacher to take. Only thing is I can't say I learned a thing from his class.

I started out thermo with a D because I missed most of class for health reasons. If you participate in class and show youre willing to learn he will talk to you and give you benefit of doubt. I went to office hours to work hard in missed lectures and passed with B. IE major so I have no reason to, but i would take him again!

He is a tough grader, and throughout the term you will think you're failing. However he won't fail you. My raw grade was a 62% and ended up getting a B in the class. He even gave students the opportunity to retake the final at home so they didn't fail. Tough grader on tests, heavy curves, but you will learn.

Comment:
The guy really isn't that bad. He knows his stuff and is willing to help. The only issue here was that he made the tests open book and open note. This made his tests HORRIBLE especially since we only had 1 HOUR to do the exam which felt impossible. My advice, ask him to do 1 page of notes and tests based more on the hmwk. Head my warning.

Good guy, very fair, not too harsh on anything at all. Made ESL fun and not nearly as big of a pain as I thought it would be.

Seems like a nice guy. He lectures an unnecessary lecture. Everything is in the book (that he helped to write). The class should just be scheduled time for the groups to meet, with him free to counsel groups, rather than a lecture. ESL tests are easy enough if you've done the labs

I stopped going to the lecture because he just read off his notes that are on the web already. No real value during class time. Midterm was pretty easy... I guessed on half the multiple choice on the final and did pretty good.

Had him for ESL lecture and has very boring powerpoint pres. No attendance req'd. very helpful with ques. A little harsh on test grading, but would recommend to take for lecture. DON'T BUY THE TEXTBOOK! I falls apart in a week and everything you'll need will be on Blackboard as a PDF.

He's a very good teacher and able to communicate what he teaches well. His exams are straightforward, do the homework and you should be good. He curves all the exams and that helps a lot. Take him!

Very helpful and clear. He was almost always availible and willing to help students with anything, and was never unreasonable. He knows everything about the subjects, and although he is a little monotone and boring for straight lecture, he makes up for it with a great personality and very resonable requirements for students. Take Pormovahed!!!!!

Thrmo is a tough class no matter who you take it with, but this guy is the most organized, most helpfull prof I've ever had in my life. A bit eccentric...gives you your break at the half way point on the second and sometimes sayd very bizzare things. 'you eat too much aluminum' 'pink paper is just very funny'(laughs to himself)

Nicest guy ever; maybe too laid back? Very helpful when asked. Lectures boring and monotone but very detailed and won't leave you at all confused. Superior to NAVAZ in EVERY way for this course.

Great prof!! Really cool guy. Easy grader. The easiest prof you can get for ES. He loves burger king so in the lab just ask him about "the king." If he learns your name he will always joke with you in lab.
