Amazing accounting teacher and even better guidance counselor. Genuinely cares about his students and wants them to succeed. When a close family member of mine passed away, he came to the funeral, which brought tears to my eye. He knows more about accounting than anyone alive and I wish I had spent more time learning from him. He opened my eyes to opportunities and programs I wouldn't have known about. I almost feel like I've disappointed him by not pursuing a career in accounting.

I had him in grade 10 back in 06. I specifically remember the day he predicted the collapse of the US market of 2008 due to the sub prime mortgage market. Although at the time I hated him with a deep passion, the memory I have of him explaining to the class what would happen and watching it eventually happen really made me respect his knowledge on the subject and realize the importance of what he was teaching. I am graduating with an accounting degree and he is entirely responsible for it.

won't help you if you need it after school, since he has to be out before the bell even rings at the end of the day.

goes off into random tangents, and his lessons are based only on power points and textbook reading.

How can you give this guy a low rating? His tests and grading are both FAIR. There are no BS 'thinking' questions on his tests, and his marking is entirely objective. So how can this class be hard? If you do the work you will theoretically get 100%.

I had him for Grade 12 Accounting and Financial Securities - definitely tough courses, but definitely fair. I'm doing a business degree now, and his classes really prepared me for it - take him!

He is fair. Everything is marked objectively, so you don't need to worry about getting BS from Chihrin. It's like math; if you get it right you get it right. Therefore, you can get 100 in his class.

Overall good teacher, and can teach, but his voice is monotone, so you easily fall asleep listening to him talk all class. Hes very nice and helpful though, He gets easily DISTRACTED all the time, if u wanna waste time, just start a topic and chihrin will get distracted for like half an hour before

Mr. Chihrin is fantastic. His "crazy tests" make you study more and he always puts everything into context. You have to know your stuff. He's an endless well of interesting facts and information.

He has a unique method of teaching and I find that it works. He doesn't really have a lesson plan but you end up absorbing more information this way.

He is one of the most fair teachers I have ever had, and I really like how we go over tests in class and he lets us argue our case for our marks. Very nice guy, but he talks a bit too much (it's hard to stay awake).

To tell you the truth he doesn't know his stuff very well. We always go through 1 chapter in 2 classes. He never gives reviews, and always goes off topic. Overall bad teacher!

Nice guy but in my opinion he doesn't teach anything. All he does during class is tell us to read our textbooks, and then isn't clear on the instructions!
