He just doesn't care about the students. He's sexist and doesn't let us go to the restroom even if we really need to. He gets annoyed and talks about his guitar all day

he's okay, i guess, all he does in class is talk about his life/irrelevant things/ or hear his "OH. MY. GOSH. BECKY." or"*weird sighing scream noise* phrase, or his weird jokes that aren't even funny. he's really snobby too, doesn't really teach at all, and apparently, the semester before this one suffered more than us, so i'm a bit grateful? hopefully he gets better as the years go by (or he can just leave tchs- it'd be nice), but y'all should avoid this class, it's basically a waste of time.

THIS GUY friggin makes us use the textbook and forces us to read the ENTIRE CLASS PERIOD while he talks to himself and plays cringy music. He then gives us a test immediately after with info that was NEVER IN THE BOOK. On some of his tests, he tests us on the tiniest details, like the small font-size 4 sentence on the bottom corner of page 8328429 and expects us to remember everything. Each chapter is also so flippin long and is extremely tedious to go through.

ALL WE DO IS USE THE TEXTBOOK.... once BEFORE the bell rang and there was only like 4 people in class i got something on my hands and it started to burn so i asked him if i can wipe it off in the restroom. He said no because i would be disrupting the class and if i was late he would mark me absent/tardy...
also on a project he didn't explain anything all he said was get in your group ur presenting tomorrow.... he once stopped class to tell his life crisis.

Sits on his chair the whole day and expects the students to learn how to do the work themselves. Doesn't let you use the restroom either.

This teacher does not teach at all. He drinks his coffee and expect students to learn on their own. It is obvious from the first lesson to the last that Mr. Simons does not know anything about what he is teaching. Zero explanation. Zero teaching. Zero understanding. Hundred percent bullsh*t.

So basically the class sounds fun but if you love working with photoshop, illustrator and indesign then this class is for you but you have to be a fast learner in his class, if you aren't then you will be super confused at least that's me, overall you have to work fast on his assignments because the due dates of his assignments are unknown, an example would be you'll work on something or a project for 2 days then the day before it's due he'll tell you it's due.

Well, I had him in Freshman year but I really hated his whole "Oh my gosh! Beckeh!" he was barely helpful when I needed desperate help. This is basically the class 90% TYPE TYPE TYPE 100% OH MY GOSH BECKY DID I TELL YOU THIS *goes on with life story* and THEN he would just play his guitar while blindly teaching us.

He must have fellated quite a few people to get his job, instead of giving to boot to other teachers they should scrap his useless job. All you do is learn how to type and use ms word, and you practically have to learn that on your own.

Doesn't teach. Says go to Microtype Pro after finishing things. Catches you sleeping =-10 pts. Takes his "Joke of a class" way too seriously. Gives only time explanation that you sometimes can't hear

HE DOES NOT TEACH, he should not be considered a "teacher". All of his classes consist of having a week or two to do a simple assignment, he give you NO help and NO direction, and never tells you how
