His actual lessons are decent, but he doesn't have the patience or social skills to be a teacher (at least for high school students). He's incredibly rude and condescending when there's no need to be. I'm pretty sure I speak for every student at the school when I say that we seem to be learning more about how to deal with awful teachers instead of any academic skills.

A little bit scary if you don't do your work, cuz he'll make fun of you in front of your classmates. It makes some people work harder, and others want to do work less. Great otherwise. Funny and sarcastic, and makes science puns.
