I had previously done some of the material but not at an IB level, instead on an AP level. I found that certain topics that weren't taught before gave me a hard time but seeing as Chong offers tutorials a lot; it wasn't hard to get the help that I needed. Would recommend for anyone struggling in math.

It's 12am right now and I'm using chong's notes from math 31 to cram for my uni midterm. Just want to mention that his notes are better than 99.9% of any math prof you'll encounter in university SO GIVE THIS MAN A HOLY GRAIL

You can expect lots of homework from him, and although he really pushes you at first he teaches you like he teaches someone whom he wants to succeed (ie his kids) rather than teaching like it's his job. He really puts passion into his teaching, overall a good teacher with excellent knowledge.

As many of the others have said, Chong does give a lot of homework. But when you take into account that math is a skill and requires quite a bit of practice, the homework is necessary. He's a great math teacher (and funny too)!

He was a great teacher that really tried hard to help his students get through the math program. It really showed that he was passionate about his students and did everything he could to help his students learn and get through exams whether it was through extra time after class, or morning math tutorials that he showed up to without fail. Thanks Mr.Chong for helping me get through high school math.

Mr Chong is a strict teacher during my 2 math class with him in 20IB and 30IB. In those of those semesters, I have to admit that math classes was one of the few classes I looked forward to going to. His style of teaching is amazing.He's a really funny teacher who jokes around all the time, yet teaches precisely with dedication. He has amazing dedication to his students, and gives out any time he has when we need help. Chong, thanks for all your teaching and help in math! Solid, dedicated teacher

Definitely one of the best teachers I have ever had. Classes with him are so much fun. Not only is he hilarious, he really goes above and beyond as a teacher. He really cares about the success of his students, and will spend his own time helping anyone who needs it. He's a tough teacher, but it's worth it in the end because you understand the subject so much better.

Mr. Chong is a fantastic teacher. He knows his stuff, teaches it well, and is extremely passionate about what he does. With his awesome personality and passion for math, however, comes his strict expectations. He expects the greatest from his students, and is very adamant about success. This can be very daunting to some, but is what makes him such a fantastic teacher.
