Ratings for Paul Tymann

9920023A very compotent teacher, able to easily convey information to his students. His tests are comprehensive, but not overly complicated or antagonistic. He is a tough grader, but fair. Tymann gladly answers any question to the best of his knowledge and is not afraid to admit that he might have to look something up. I strongly recommend Tymann.
9920023One of the best professors here at RIT. He is the backbone of the whole CS department. Great lecturer, great notes. His classes are a lot of fun. If you're going to take a class that he's teaching, get into his section even if its at 8am. It's worth it. The guy who gave Tymann an F has no clue what he's taking about.
9520023Great teacher. Makes material easy to understand. All his notes are online for easy reference.
9920023What more can I say? He's started to admit that he doesn't know stuff more frequently and is overall a really friendly, instructive and helpful guy. Why couldn't more teachers be like him?
5820023Didn't help me understand any of the material very well at all. Expects you to know how to do everything before you even enter the class.
9920023best CS teacher I have had I look foreward to having him for CS3.
9920012By far the best teacher I have had at RIT. Easy grader, interesting lectures.
9920012Tymann's my hero.
9120012Awesome teacher, nice guy, but his tests are terrible.
9920012Tymann is GOD!!! Incredibly helpful teaching methods. Tests are EXTREMELY easy if you follow along in class and have some background in the subject. (Don't take tests while hung over) ;)
If you have the chance to take Tymann, do it. Change your schedule if you have to, but take him. Extremely helpful outside of class, and answers all emails.
Thanks for a positive learning experiance
9920012Not only is he a great teacher, he blows off those CS majors that try to kiss his butt. If you want a fair class, this is the only teacher that can give one in the CS department.
9920012Wonderful professor. Really relates to the students and covers lots of material at a good pace without leaving many behind. Open to help for all sorts of things and a very fair grader and person.

9120002Great teacher, kept class interesting for the most part. In PLC he gave take-home tests, but they were still quite difficult. You had to pick up everything he said in class, and he moved a little fast sometimes. Definitely one of the better CS professors.

9920001Friendly, casual, knowledgeable, and helpful the four qualities that make Tymann such a good professor.
9920001He has the first CS to close, even if it's 8 AM, and you are going to question his ability to teach? He is a great teacher, able to convey the material well, and throws in some reminders, jokes, and more to break any doldrums. If you can get his class, get it!
9920001Great teacher. His classes are interesting and informative.
