All Ratings and Reviews for Timothy R Tangherlini
He is amazing!!! I feel super proud to see the professor's name appearing on the "additional credits" at the end of FROZEN!! He's so funny that the lecture is pretty interesting and enjoyable. He assigns appropriate reading and makes the class a lot more tolerant.
Awesome, awesome class! The professor is super funny and made all the material super interesting. Even the readings assigned were interesting to read!
Would recommend a lot.
Professor Tangherlini is one of the more engaging professors of this class. His slides are very organized and the material was very interesting. He often makes jokes during class and tells us funny anecdotes. The readings that he assigned may be a bit too much sometimes, but they weren't hard to read.
I loved this professor. He was so funny and wanted his students to do well. Attendance matters because you download an app you have to check in to every class but he doesn't care if you sleep or do other work. There are discussion posts once a week but they are easy. Also you have take home essays as your midterm and final. Probably my favorite professor so far at UCLA. TAKE HIM!!!!
If you (like myself) like your professor to be organized and to present the class material in an efficient way then DONT take any classes with Tangherlini! Sure he is fun and interesting, but that doesnt really mean all that much when you are trying to figure out how to write a 10 page paper when nothing has been covered! Trust me, it is not worth it, the class is not as easy as people say.
He makes class a joy to attend!
The best prof I've had at UCLA. A genius and a totally funny lecturer. And a nice guy.
He's one of the coolest prof. that I met in UCLA.. He's funny(tries to be) and he tries to relax the students in his lecture.. His fieldwork is not too hard and it's do-able..... well, I did end up with an A maybe that's why but his class was always interesting enough to keep me awake, after waking up at 5am and driving to school for an hour... so, I think he's pretty cool...
When you first get into this class, it seems really kick back and relaxed... but its not. Sure, there isnt too much work to do, but the grading is very hard on the midterms and essays. I asked the TA for help on my essay and we worked on it for a while, and even after all his help I ended up with a B or B- on it. His lectures aren't that bad though cuz he uses powerpoint and he puts it online, so that helps.
During the first half of the course, I didn't take the class too seroiusly. However, after I started to pay attention to his lectures, I really found the material to be interesting. He is flexible with the fieldwork projects that we have to do and it's actually fun. I give him mad props b/c even tho I am Korean, he knows wayyy more about Korean culture and history (and maybe even langauge) more than I do. Awesome professor!
