Uhh...last year in chemistry, he didn't even properly teach us. He doesn't explain things clearly and he always sidetracks by telling stories we don't want to hear. Stoichiomtry screwed us over.

He is a very weird/random/funny teacher. He tells very interesting stories at times. I'd say he is a good teacher.

A very random teacher, if he doesn't teach an important university course class, I might even say I like him and his stories. I really want to pass with at least >some< knowledge about the subject. >:

Needs to stop talking about useless things and actually teach. He just does not understand the needs of his students at all. He knows what he is talking about but his students don't.

He's a good teacher. If you don't feel like doing work in his class, ask him about Area 51 and ask him what happens there. He'll talk about it for an entire class!
