Spring 2019 - POL 210: American Politics

  • “Prof. Tuholski has been the best professor I've had so far at SNHU. I was dreading this class and he made it interesting and exciting to be in. He genuinely made me more excited for a topic that I wasn't interested in. He was excellent at replying to discussions and it created a more "classroom” feel.”

  • “Dr. T is a great instructor and an asset to SNHU. He is teaching politics in a very trying time in America. Our weekly discussion post topics were educational and engaging. He also had weekly book selections to further engage us in politics, and also recommended personal selections according to the topic we had chosen to write about. I had no idea I would enjoy a class in Amercian Politics so much. Dr. T's constructive feedback and understanding throughout the course was instrumental and greatly appreciated. Thank you for everything Dr.T., you are an amazing teacher!”

  • “A great instructor, always challenging us to work harder and expand our minds!”

  • “Prof. Tuholski is an absolutely great instructor. He was very compassionate when I experienced a life changing event with my elderly mother. I appreciated his concern during that situation.”

  • “This instructor was very helpful when it came to questions and submitting assignments. If I submitted an assignment that was correct, but not in the format he requested, he would still give me a good grade because I met all the criteria. I think this is how all teachers should be, allow the students to think outside the box. Would love to take another course with him!”

  • “Professor Tuholski is one of the best professors I've had in my almost 5 years of college classes. The passion he shows for the subject is inspiring and the workload at first seemed heavy but I've learned so much and am so thankful for this course.”

  • “Professor Tuholski is nice, and easy to get along with. He is perceptive and very knowledgeable in this field. He made it easy to learn, and provided great support along the way!”

  • “What I really appreciated was the instructor gave feedback when he return my paper.This helped me to understand where I went wrong and he was clear on what he wanted. He presented the material that simplified a complicated subject.I hope I always have access to the content. It was fascinating.”


Spring 2019 - POL 612: State, Local, and Urban Politics

  • “I was a little apprehensive before the class and reading through a few changes Dr. Tuholski proposed with the discussion groups. Once I was engaged in the process, I felt more engaged with them than I have with any of my other classes. He was enthusiastic about every aspect of the class and provided great feedback on discussions and papers. I would gladly have him as a professor again due to his approach and how much I learned with him. Thank you!”

  • “Dr. Tuholski is one of the few graduate professors who is willing to engage with his students in a meaningful manner on a consistent basis. Assignments are designed with clear expectations and are always thought-provoking in nature with application to real-world skills. Ultimately, his courses are benefited by his commitment to student success, with a focus on preparing those who take his class for applicable professions.”

  • “I think that the overall curriculum was enhanced by Prof. Tuholski as he made relevant updates to some of the course materials, and provided us the platform to expand on relevant topics that are related.”

  • “This was a very enjoyable class with a quality professor. I benefited from the instruction and the material. It is my hope the university maintains this level of excellence I have received during the course.”

  • “Prof. Tuholski is top of the line. By far my favorite instructor I've had as he always goes above and beyond to keep material interesting, relevant and engaging. Not only that, but he provides great feedback and is genuinely interested in helping you succeed and discover new material. My favorite is that he suggests books for us to check out on a weekly basis. These suggestions have opened me up to so many new topics. If this wasn't my last semester I'd definitely take another of his classes! Seriously, give this man a raise!”

  • “I really appreciated the fact that there were alternative discussion topics for each week. The alternative topics still addressed the learning objectives for that week, but I really appreciated and enjoyed the fact that there were multiple options from which to choose. Because oftentimes the alternative topics appealed to me more than the standard topic.”

  • “I enjoyed this class, and I honestly was dreading it.”

  • “The positive feedback and suggestions by the professor contributed to a better final paper submission.”

  • “Such an outstanding professor, the best I have seen so far!”

Spring 2019 - POLI 330: Introduction to Political Science

  • “Dr. T loves what he teaches and does it well.”

  • “I have never been very interested in politics and was a little nervous about taking this class. I was very pleasantly surprised with the content. Dr. T made everything very interesting and informative. He was constantly interacting with the class and keeping things factual rather than political opinion.”

  • “Before this class I did not know anything about political science. However, I now can have a constructive conversation with my peers with confidence regarding current affairs. Thank you, Professor T.”

  • “As a nursing major, I was not looking forward to this class and was nervous to take it. I ended up enjoying this class and learned a lot. I think Dr. T is a very good professor and helped us students optimize our learning as best as we could. I loved that he provided us with additional questions and topics other than the main question for the weekly discussion posts.

I would highly recommend him to anyone who has to take this course.”

  • “I would not change a thing about this class. It was a pleasure to be a student in this class. It really challenged me.”

  • “Dr. T was always professional, prompt with grading, and somehow made learning about political science fun. When he wrote feedback for my grades or discussion posts, I felt that it was genuine and not just a copy-and-paste response.”

  • “Dr. T made an extremely intimidating course very non-threatening in his interaction and approach to different learning styles and needs. I believe offering several topics in the discussion posts gave individuals the opportunities to find something that interested them and provided a broader scope as others provided research and details on the various topics. In all honesty, I was not in favor of taking this course but feel I have been challenged appropriately and have gained a great deal of insight from the course! Dr. T rocks!”

  • “Instructor was great, very engaged with the class and made it interesting. He really seemed to want his students to understand concepts and engage. I think it is hard not to do well with Dr Tuholski as an instructor.”

  • “Dr. Tuholski is one of the most engaged professors that students could hope for in a graduate-level program. In addition to demonstrating a genuine interest in students' success, he also provides relevant information to assist students in research beyond the scope of what would normally be expected from an instructor.

  • “Excellent professor.”

Fall 2018 - POLI 330: Introduction to Political Science

Dr. T made everything very interesting and informative. He was constantly interacting with the class and keeping things factual rather than political opinion.”

  • “Professor Tuholski was very helpful when I needed it and always provided ample feedback.”

  • “Dr. T made an extremely intimidating course very non-threatening in his interaction and approach to different learning styles and needs. I believe offering several topics in the discussion posts gave individuals the opportunities to find something that interested them and provided a broader scope as others provided research and details on the various topics. In all honesty, I was not in favor of taking this course but feel I have been challenged appropriately and have gained a great deal of insight from the course! Dr. T rocks!”

This made the class so much more interesting and made me personally interact more than I would have with everyone answering the same question. I think more professors should do this. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has to take this course.”

  • “He gave us the resources to increase our knowledge. As for me I am now interested in whats happening in our country politically.”

  • “He gave multiple opportunities and scenarios you could post to and I feel I learned more than if there had been only one question posted. This class had a lot of great participation and I attribute this to the numerous responses the professor offered frequently to all the students.”

  • “He's very passionate about political science and that comes out in every topic we cover, as well as the numerous podcast and book recommendations he gave throughout the semester. He is very involved with discussion posts and provides very specific and encouraging feedback when grading assignments.

  • “Always available to help.”

  • “He is encouraging, he provokes one to think outside the box. He wasn't biased, and he was so engaging with the different views of politics nationally, internationally and locally.

He is a great Professor. He responded quickly and efficiently to all of my questions.”

If he offered other classes I needed for my degree I would sign up in a heartbeat. Highly recommend.”

In this class, I had to respond to two main topics and respond to others on separate days for both threads.

  • "My professor made this class interesting."

  • "This class was amazing! The professor was quick to respond, really interactive with the threads, and kept the class going."

  • “Mr. T is very good at communicating with an effective teaching style. I hope that he continues to teach the way he did this semester. It was a delight to have him as an instructor.”

Fall 2014 - COM 114: Fundamentals of Speech Communication

In this class I felt like my instructor graded my work fairly and awards people for their hard work.

This allowed students to refer back to previous lectures to create a good outline and presentation.”

Fall 2013 - POL 223: Introduction to Environmental Policy

I liked was the fact that you divided your course material into so many different things; there were articles to read, chapters, current events, and presentations. The broad range helped me to understand, more easily, the course material. I also got a chance to see the problems presented in different lights and views. Thank you, Andrew!”

  • “Not only was the class over the material itself, policy and the like, but the reasoning behind policy and why things are the way they are. Each assignment in the class was related to another, yet each assignment was quite varied.”
