“Under Kevin’s instruction, I learned how to build and design websites, something that I still continue to do today. In class, he taught us how to analyze changing market trends and critically think about digital marketing solutions. He didn’t teach from a book, but rather brought practical real-life experiences into the classroom, something that would be relatable to everyone. Kevin is someone who wants everyone to succeed. I would find myself observing his kind and passionate demeanor and the way he always fostered a respectful and inclusive classroom environment. Never once did I think to myself, he doesn’t care. Kevin truly cares. He was always available for advice, and even after I have graduated I know that I can come back to him for anything I might need. A gem of a person. Anyone that has the opportunity to work with him is considerably lucky and I would recommend him without a second thought.”Fatima Ramzanali
“Kevin is one of the best people and professors I’ve come across at Suffolk University. I took two courses with him during my junior year and learned how to build and design websites, as well as analysis the future and growing trends of social media. He was incredibly knowledgeable in every aspect of the field, and taught me many thing beyond the classroom that I use in my daily life and job.
“His experiences, knowledge, and natural willingness to always go above and beyond is quite rare. He is someone who does not stop at the minimum requirement, and truly cares about his students.
“I was incredibly lucky to learn under his instruction. Kevin is someone everyone wants to know. He is charismatic, kind, intelligent, innovative, inspired, and passionate about his work. The thoughtfulness he put into each lesson was truly generous and exceptional, and there aren’t enough good words I could use for him.“Connie Lai
“Kevin Greenstein was one of my favorite professors at Suffolk University. He has such a great energy and positivity about him and a profound understanding of how media affects our culture, and how we can help shape media and evolving forms of tech.
“My favorite class Kevin taught was Design Lab — where he showed me basic skills in Photoshop and InDesign, something to this day people find extremely helpful. He really taught me a lot about myself and how to focus and hone my creativity.
“Ultimately going to Kevin’s classes everyday was an absolute pleasure and I always felt like I was learning. He coached me on figuring out social media marketing (tips I used to help garner over 8,000 followers on my personal social media) as well as product branding and platform usage.
“Kevin taught me almost everything I feel I learned in college, and for that I am thankful – he is a phenomenal professor and an even better person.“John Stier
“Kevin was my professor for the New Media New Markets course at Suffolk University. In this class, he taught us about the changing marketing landscape by having us create a site using WordPress. There were all different levels of technical knowledge in the class, but Professor Greenstein managed to accommodate everyone in a way that left us all ending the semester with a much better grasp of digital marketing than we came in with.
“Having Kevin as my professor in this course set me up for professional success, as I still use knowledge gained in that class to this day. He has always made himself accessible and is always willing to lend an ear to former students as they try to navigate the professional world. Kevin clearly has a passion for all things digital marketing and it definitely shows in all that he does. I recommend Kevin without hesitation to any business that is lucky enough to have the chance to work with him.“Julia Shuruyeva
“As a student, I had many teachers and educators pass through my life, yet only a special few left a lasting impression – and even fewer stood out as mentors or even friends. Without question Kevin was and continues to be all three years after I’ve graduated.
“I always enjoyed and looked forward to the classes I had with Kevin, he would often go to great lengths in order to see his students succeed. Kevin would present materials in class that would push our creativity to the next level and gave us the support we needed to follow through and execute on such ideas. I was able to leave his classes with a framework that has carried me throughout my career, which is something I am truly grateful for.
“After graduating from Suffolk, I am fortunate enough to call Kevin both a mentor and a friend. I know I can easily reach out to him for advise or questions pertaining to my current career, or even projects I am tackling on my own. Kevin will go above and beyond to help in anyway he can to see you succeed – a rare breed in this profession. Anyone who gets the opportunity to work with or learn from Kevin is truly lucky.“Molly Moran
“I don’t hesitate to say that Kevin Greenstein has been one of the most influential teachers in my life, and has absolutely inspired me to follow my dreams. Over the past seven years, Kevin has been my professor, mentor, boss, and most recently my friend.
“While my professor at Suffolk University and during a time where I was interested in gaining experience in the communications world, Kevin connected me with the author of Socialnomics, a book we read as part of the curriculum for the New Media, New Markets course. This in turn translated into an amazing internship where I learned new skills as well as wrote for and applied my design skills obtained in Kevin’s class to the Socialnomics blog. Even after I graduated, he helped me obtain a freelance writing job to keep growing my skill set and gain experience.
“This of course is just one example of how Kevin went above and beyond for his students. He would often go at great lengths in order to see his students succeed, and he taught us real life, relevant, applicable skills to take with us in our careers.
“Mainly, Kevin gave his students confidence that their ideas were worth pursuing. Recently, I started a travel blog and I contacted him for advice. In true form, Kevin went above and beyond to help me create an impactful logo, implement a strategy, and think about revenue streams for the future.
“Since day one, Kevin Greenstein has motivated me to follow my dreams and has always believed that I could make it happen. I am grateful to have learned so much from him and am happy to call him my mentor and friend.”Lauren Mae Pelkey
“I was one of the lucky students to snag a spot in Professor Greenstein’s class at Suffolk University… His classes always filled up quickly. In his course, we learned the skills to build and design a website. The website could be anything we wanted it to be – this made it much more interesting for all the students in the class. Not only was the project fun, but it was challenging. While I had a passion for marketing, advertising, the technology/design side of things never came easy to me. I expressed my concerns and Professor Greenstein took time to work with me to become successful in his class and in my career down the line. And he ddi this with any student that had trouble.
“Upon graduation I went into advertising as an account manager and worked with countless clients and Creative Directors on projects similar to the one I worked on in his class. Because I had a full knowledge base, I have been able to communicate efficiently to ensure our end product is a success for our client. This is something I wouldn’t have been able to do without Kevin’s class, but most importantly his teaching. I took his class five years ago and I still remember the classroom and the lessons. He’s an incredible educator and mentor.
“I also forgot to mention that he started each class with a discussion of what was happening in the digital space (in 2011, that was a lot!). This would help get our minds racing about creativity, and what was possible — he pushed us to see what was possible. A talent few professors possess.”Karolyne Crowe
“I had Kevin as a professor in a class called New Media New Markets. His class’s focus was around learning how to build your own website through WordPress. Daunting, yes, but Kevin brought the class through each step and really knew the platform and how to actually teach us how to build from the platform.
“I decided to make my website for new leadership conference I was a part of. My intent was to actually use it for the conference, for potential participants to go to website to learn more, download the application, contact the leaders through a contact form. My intent was actually accomplished with the incredible help of Kevin. Throughout the semester, I learned how to build an actual working site, and it was live and ready to use by December.
“Yes, Kevin was and is a great professor and teacher, but he also goes above and beyond. Since he knew I needed the site to be more than a simple WordPress blog, he helped me transfer the domain to one that I had bought. He kept the site on his server and I’m sure periodically checked on it far after the final grades were submitted and his obligation was over. Fast-forward about 18 months and the site was no longer active. I contacted him in a panic, and he seemingly dropped everything to not only answer my question, but to actually fix it and tell me what was wrong. To this day, that site it still being used as a tool for this leadership program.
“It is my pleasure to recommend Kevin Greenstein, one of the most selfless and talented professors I have had the pleasure to meet and learn from.“Taylor Preston
“Some words that describe Kevin Greenstein: Kind, generous, thoughtful, intelligent, caring, strategic, innovative.
Kevin was my professor at Suffolk University. His teaching style was very clear, calm and stimulating. He is in my top 2 list for reasonable professors that go beyond their role as just a professor, but as a true mentor and friend.
When I was in need of direction after college, Kevin stepped up and met with me, offering great guidance and even offered to connect me with many people in his network. His level generosity is very rare. He truly cares about the his students.
Kevin is someone that you WANT to know. Someone that you WANT to work with. He is a rare and valuable commodity that I highly recommend as a co-worker and friend. “Derek Brisson
“Looking back on my college career, I can say that without a doubt Kevin was one of my favorite professors. His passion and knowledge for the digital space was exposed in a matter of seconds when sitting in on my first class with him.
“In one of his courses we were required to build and design a website of our own. Having no experience with this before, I was nervous I wouldn’t be able to successfully complete this project. However that quickly changed when Kevin went above and beyond for every student. He would take the time to sit down with each student to review our progress and offer his opinions on how to get our site to the next level, even if that means staying past our scheduled class time. With that being said, by the end of the semester, I acquired new skills I never thought I would with Kevin’s guidance.
“Kevin truly cares about his students’ success. From questions on homework assignments to advice on a career path, you could always rely on Kevin for providing you with the best answers. Kevin encourages his students to think differently and really made us dig deeper when discussing/ thinking about a particular issue. Either in the classroom or in the workplace, I know Kevin will exceed all expectations and be an inspiration to others.”Casey Cornell
“I had Kevin as a professor for a New Media New Markets class. I was dreading taking the required course for my major and thought the premise sounded awful and terrible. Kevin made it one of my favorites. The content was always modern and relevant, including recent articles and discussing issues that affected us; it never felt like repeat material or rehashing old years’ lessons. If we asked about something that was relevant to the class, even if not related to the material we were actively discussing, he would take the time to address it. He would even offer to look into materials/articles and email them out later (and sometimes did)!
“One of our main projects for the semester was building a website. It was something that I had always wanted to do, but never bothered to or entirely understood how to do. When we were given (ample) class time to work on our sites, Kevin was always available for questions and to offer solutions and suggestions. By the end of the class, I had a very functional website which I used for a couple years after (and which he helped me to set up with a domain and hosting, as I didn’t know much about that either).
“Basically he’s a fun and engaging professor who understands modern tech, current issues, and so on. If you put nothing into the class, you probably won’t get much out of it. But if you want to try and learn, there are so many takeaways; from practical social media use to theoretical ideas about business, ethics, and the progression of media. I’m grateful to have had such a wonderful professor for what could have been an absolutely terrible class.”Ange Rawling
