Quarter Taken: Spring 2020 Submitted June 21, 2020 Grade Received: A

matthew is one of my favorite teachers at ucla. his lectures were pre-recorded due to covid-19, but his teaching was very engaging and involved humor. he has a bubbly personality and is really passionate about the topics, so he is more than willing to help you. i would highly recommend going to his office hours because some of the Buddhist principles can get confusing, and he clarifies them well. he is down-to-earth and approachable, and he made the final optional due to blm. the midterm is graded by him, but the essay is graded by your ta. i felt that my ta was on the pickier side in terms of grading, but matthew was very reasonable on the midterm grading. as long as you hit the main points, you're good.

Quarter Taken: Winter 2020 Submitted June 13, 2020 Grade Received: A

Matthew was wonderful. He was really kind and approachable, and was clearly very passionate about the subject material. By nature of this being a writing class, your grade is largely dependent on your TA; that being said, the class was very interesting and you get to choose whatever you want your final paper to be about. There were times I got a bit bored in class, but taking notes is very important. The midterm and final were short answer/essay questions, so make sure that you know the material haha.
