I was terrified to take his class because his reviews of bruin walk said that he was a bad professor. I was so scared to take his class, but I took my chances.

Professor Gleizer is one of the most friendly and personable professors I have met while being here at UCLA. He was very patient, and always willing to walk through questions with students in his office hours.

During lecture, he would go over Precalculus and he would also lecture on the material for Math 3A. He was straightforward, and he wanted his students to succeed. He gave practice exams and they were almost identical to both midterms. The final was much harder, but I walked away with a B in the class.

Great Professor. I would definitely recommend to take him. Go to his office hours!

I was skeptical of taking him for 32B because of the previous reviews, but I figured since they're old, he might have new methods of teaching. Though he had a few interesting blurbs about math history, I realized that all the reviews had been true. Lectures were rather erratic - one day he questioned whether we knew how to add vectors, and another day, he told us that we were all electrical engineers and should be able to understand this when the second midterm scores came out low. He tended to be behind on lectures and had to do a three hour review session (which was really a three hour lecture). Final seemed to have little to none connection to what was discussed. Would not recommend.

Prof. Gleizer is possibly the nicest professor I've interacted with. From his overwhelmingly lenient grading policies (offering the option to redo exam problems in office hours for credit) to his emphasis on sound conceptual understanding, Oleg clearly cares about the wellbeing of his students.

During office hours, Prof. Gleizer's process for exam makeup was relatively straightforward. For any problems missed on an exam, Oleg would come up with a new problem grounded in the same conceptual area. If you could demonstrate learned understanding, he gave you points back on the corresponding exam problem. In order to balance allotted time for people wanting to redo missed exam problems vs people confused about the lecture topics, Prof. Gleizer made sure to take questions on lecture materials beforehand.
