Comment:
Unpopular opinion, but I love classes with Stefan. If you don't make the extra effort in the class you won't do well. But if you go to his seminars and office hours he'll help you and give you hints so you can at least get a decent grade. He really lenient and understanding with due dates and gives lots of bonus marks. He's a gem!

Comment:
Had I known how his classes worked, I would have taken more of them. Unlike other math teachers, he makes hard but highly educational assignments, with lots of thought put into them. This class was entirely just a take-home exam and weekly assignments, and I found that structure vastly more educational than a punishing series of tests.

Comment:
The teacher did not answer a single email I sent. As this is an online course that made him absolutely useless for any information I needed regarding the course. He handed in all marking during the holidays, making it difficult to get in contact with him about why certain marks were received.

Stefan is the best professor I had during my time at Trent. He always helped students outside of class hours to understand core concepts. He also is a fair grader who provides extra assignments to help our learning. He dedicated a significant amount of time to creating online resources so we can succeed. Such a pleasure to learn from him. #MathPoem

Stefan is a great guy and as many other raters have said, he is always willing and wanting to help. His lectures are slightly confusing and his examples may look intimidating, but the seminars will be your best friend as they help explain concepts far more in depth. He is a fair grader and will give credit where credit is due!

Comment:
He really does care! You can tell that he loves math and you can also tell that he wants everyone to understand! Sometimes e's in his own little world during lectures and if you aren't paying attention you'll get a little lost. If you go to his office hours you'll see he really wants to help you understand the concepts, he also does makeup tests

Stefan is one of the best professors I've had at Trent. He is always willing to help outside of class. His lectures are funny and interesting and he cares about his students. He does his best to provide students with resources and help them succeed. His course is difficult and boring, which he understands, but he does his best to make it enjoyable.

Stefan's a good guy. Explains stuff clearly. He gives you a good taste of the "mathematics life." If you put in the effort, you will be rewarded accordingly. He is a little eccentric, but then again this is mathematics.

Great prof, tried many ways to explain things. couse was fast-paced, but would take time were needed to make sure concepts were grasped. seminars were useful, so pick a time you can make most or all of them. if you are dedicated to doing well, he will accommodate to help the best he can.

Very interesting, although the lectures and assignments don't always line up with what you actually need to know for the exam. Stefan makes up for this by being extremely clear about expectations for the midterm and exam, for our class he reviewed what skills would be needed for each question.

He is a great person! He is always willing to help! He is not a good teacher; by any means. But he tries. You need to go to class. You need to teach yourself. You will have an assignment due every week. Do them all. They have nothing to do with the course material, but they will bring your mark up, especially since he drops the worst ones.

Such a sweetheart! Allows everyone to make up tests (with limitations) if the class overall did poorly. Lots of easy assignments to boost your grade. Fun anecdotes in class and please check out all the adorable miscellaneous things on his website! He even chose a textbook that was accessible for free online so we didn't have to buy one.

Stefan is probably my favourite human on earth. I absolutely idolize thus guy. Understanding, helpful and funny, his lectures are engaging and he loves what he does. He won't take it personally if you're confused, so go ask him questions. Or just buy him a small, black coffee and go to his office and chat for an hour.

Often goes off on tangents about things that are outside the scope of the course. Extremely slow at returning assignments and quizzes. Uses a very strange textbook that is pretty much useless.

I found it hard to stay engaged during lectures, he often would go off on tangents. However, he is very caring and will let you re-write quizzes during office hours to improve your grade.

Really nice, very smart guy. Very easy to approach. Will help you get the mark you want if you're struggling but are willing to put in the effort. It was unclear what he expected us to know. Very slow at returning assignments and quizzes.
