If u don't understand the work too bad, he won't take the time to help u learn. He rather make bad jokes and worry about his retirement

He knows more about his future after retirement that the materials in Chemistry 12 and Pre-cal 12. There is more passion and effort put into his cringy jokes and what he is going to cook for dinner than the education of his students.

If he tells you something isn't on the test, or you don't need to know it, learn it. It will be on the test, and the exam. All the homework he says isn't due will be due. So do it. He's awful.

Mr. McCarthy is eccentric. He teaches the raw essentials needed for the course and then tons of other things that simply come out of his mind, if he's your chemistry teacher. Math is not so good.

I don't know why everyone complains about him. He teaches to the people who want to be in the class, not the kids who just sit there doing nothing. Yes he uses the textbook, but usually for examples

He is a nice, and funny. But a bad math teacher.He taught PMA 12 writing notes on the board with the text book in his hand at the same time. some of the students would point out all the mistakes.

mccarthy is dedicated and he cares about us. if you suffer with him, it's because you're toolazy or don't care...you don't take chemistry or calculus as a free ride class; be prepared to put work in!

This guy is plain horrible for Chem11/12. He doesn't explain anything. He randomly makes up tests and expects you to know everything. Should not be teaching.

He is so hard. He doesn't explain things well and when you ask for help he looks everywhere but your face.

"The Chem 11 course is sort of like being tied to a truck with a rope around your waist and you just have to keep running." Most hilarious man I have ever met!

The outside jokes make up for the fact that I had to learn about 90% of what I knew from other students. He's just halarious, and strangely smart.
