Worst Professor I've ever met at the UCLA.
You will get the grade depending on your acting, not the grade you've got.If he likes you, you will get a good grade but if not, you never get good grade. I even don't know what my final grade is and asked him about my grade. HE NEVER ANSWER. He pretended to be nice throughout the quarter for evaluation sheet but if you finished it, he will change to be SOOooooo mean. NO replies, No care, even though you did gooooood job at the finals, your grade already been decided early before.

I had never taken an AOS class before, but 145 had no AOS prereqs and it looked pretty interesting, so I gave it a shot. That said, I thought Dr. Stutz was a great professor. Our class had less than 20 people, and he learned who everyone was, so he knew that I wasn't an AOS major and had never heard of many of the basic concepts covered in the class such as albedo and adiabatic lapse rates. He was always very patient with me and took the time to explain these fundamental concepts to me during discussion section, and I ended up doing very well on the midterm despite not knowing nearly as much about the atmosphere as the other AOS majors in the class.

I would recommend Dr. Stutz. He is very kind and laid back, and often gave us extra time to finish our homework assignments even after the due date passed. His philosophy is to assign difficult homework problems that really make you think hard, but to make up for this his exams are much easier, and he even promises you that the midterm and final will not be nearly as hard as the homework.

The only inconvenient thing about him is that he's always traveling to AOS events and meetings both out of the state and out of the country - it was nice sometimes because he would cancel class, but then that also meant that he was less available to answer our emails or help us if we were having trouble with the homework.

All in all, he's a nice man who actually cares about teaching apart form his research, and I am glad that I took AOS 145 with him.
