Mr.Tam is a great teacher overall. I personally think his notes are not the best because he explains examples and jots them down on the over head, but doesn't really include written steps. So, I do have to ask for a lot of help. Funny teacher, great to work with, highly personable.
He will try to help you succeed (vs. teachers who flat out are just done with teacher, but are because they have to). IDK if teaching is his passion, but he is good enough. Work hard...u should be ok.

Simply the best. I still don't like math but he made it enjoyable to attend class. He is very chill and lots of fun. I love how he explains math in a meaningful way that I can understand. Transfer to his class, you won't regret it.

he's a good teacher. very fun and entertaining but as years go by the quality of his teaching is going down. tests are getting harder and hes absent a lot or his notes get very unclear. doesn't go over enough examples compared to other teachers. overall okay teacher but i'd rather have a teacher who explains more so i can get a better mark than f unny teacher.
