Selected Comments

Introductory Microeconomics

"His ability to speak with excitement and enthusiasm during the 8am lectures is honestly something I applaud him for and it helped keep me awake and more focused."

"Mr. Jonelis made things easy to understand by providing awesome, tangible examples. He answered all my questions even when the extended beyond the course’s breadth. I literally could not have asked for a better econ teacher."

Introductory Macroeconomics

"Mr. Jonelis is a strong teacher. His background in professional work is evident in his teaching style; he is to the point and does a good job of filling in holes in his students' knowledge when they ask questions. He seems to be able to read his classroom well and prods his students to make sure that they are making sense of the material." 

"I love this man. He was so cool, calm, and collected, the information was delivered very effectively. Loved his little Kahoots and his condensing of information during reviews. Such a Ron Swanson/Andy Dwyer hybrid. Honestly, that added to how much I liked him. He was THE best professor at keeping up with the chat. I think he liked the chat feature too because a student could ask a question whenever, and when he finished his sentence or point, he would be able to address it (student wouldn't forget and he wouldn't be interrupted)."

Business and Economic Statistics

"Andrew was one of the best teachers I and my class mates have ever had. He gets us to interact during class and actually learn."

"[Mr.] Jonelis did a great job of slowing down the material for my class. When the material became confusing, he would slow it down and give plenty of examples to help our class better understand the material."

"He was [an instructor] that really wanted every student to understand. He never wanted to leave someone lost about the material. I would recommend him for everyone to take."

"I really like his relationship with students. At first I thought he was really intimidating and with groups he moved me to the front row which scared me. However, I really respect his outlook on education and his love for students."

Intermediate Macroeconomics

"This class by no means was easy but all of the information was extremely applicable for future career opportunities and in fact a presentation I did in this class helped me gain certain internship positions because it helped me display strong analytical skills"

"Mr. Jonelis is insightful with what is going on in the world. He encourages people to answer questions and come to office hours."

"He really cares about the material we are learning and wants us to cultivate deeper critical thinking skills in regards to economic topics, which I really appreciate."

"He is knowledgeable about macro/its applications/current events, which makes class more interesting and the material easy to learn. He is always easy to reach/available and willing to put in time/effort if students are. The first week, he made sure to learn names/facts about students, which 1. was awesome and 2. made the classroom more comfortable and made him more approachable."

Economics of Emerging Markets

"Absolutely loved the class. I was always engaged during class, asking questions every class because the subject was of great interest to me and the professor showed extensive knowledge in it."

"Professor is a fantastic prof with a clear understanding of complex economics and international relations. I really enjoyed his classes, it was fun to learn. If you are interested in the subject, he

will always find time to help you out and provide valuable feedback."
