Definitely should be a home school teacher (of his own kids). Techniques are too far out there for students to understand!

He has an interesting and effective teaching style, and he really wants you to do your best. He talks a lot about economics and life lessons, and makes a lot of jokes on students' behalfs though.

Really awesome in a lot of ways, the only issue is consistency (not being awesome all the time or when it matters the most). Keep up the economic/life lesson rants too (but make 'em shorter!)

You get off topic a lot. We learn a variety of topics even though you're only supposed to teach math. You're a bit boring, give too much homework, and put a lot of pressure on us, but I learned a lot.

He's a great teacher but sometimes too harsh. Sometimes he teaches concepts too quickly so some can't really understand them. Otherwise, Mr.Koch is a fantastic teacher who's taught us all so much.

I am going to grade 11 now, i skipped a grade and joined his class in january. I was a bit scared to see a teacher with a pony tail come to get me from the office, especially since his name sounded like 'coach'. But as soon as i saw the big smile on his face i knew i was going to have a great time. At the end of the year it turned out that i had the 'time of my life'. He is very encouraging, and helpful to all his students. He is a strong promoter of an active lifestyle. His science projects were the best.

Overall, i think he a good math teacher, but sometimes he goes throught steps too fast. In class we were learning about albraic expresions and someting else that has to do with algebra. It had many steps and the questions were quite hard! He just kept on making us do harder questions when i didn't even get the first one right! Many of us told him we didn't understand but sais he'd tell us tommorow. I still don't know how to do it so il have to ask someone else! I am so LOST ! I usualy alway understand!

Randomness is a factor in mathematics, but generally not included in grading. How does a ratio of chips relate to grades? Offers to negotiate for a revision to grades is unsettling to this parent.

I think Mr.Koch is a good teacher since he relates a lot of things to the outside world to get us into reality. it's a shock to go into his room for the first time, since he is very indimidating.
