never had him as a teacher but once I tried to walk into his class to grab my water bottle from my friend because I left it in an earlier class. It was the first 5 minutes of class and I walked over silently and he just screamed at me to get out freciously. No teacher should have that much anger while they're teaching.

Knows what he is talking about but extremely vague in his instructions and expectations. Blatantly shows favouritism and does little to assist or encourage students he's not fond of. Tries way too hard to be likeable and relate to students.

I used to think Mr Yuen wasn't that good and was really biased. He still is biased, but you know what? He actually teaches well. I'm actually satisfied with him for English 11. He gives us plenty of time to get used to writing but I don't like how we never know when we're going to write and it's almost like we're waiting for him to throw bait at us. However, I realized that he actually chooses his sick days to mark our papers and assignments. And then the next day, BAM! He gives our stuff back.

Mr Yuen is ok I guess. He's my teacher for English 11, but he's kind of vague sometimes in terms of teaching. He also have a certain amount of ideas, and if your ideas are too deep or out of his range, he won't really like it because it's "not right". Anyways, he seems reasonable sometimes but some people who should be getting lower marks are somehow getting higher than they should (no offence).

A good teacher but he needs to accept that he's not in his 20s. He tries too hard to look younger than he is and be liked by his students.

Yuen is a very personable teacher, he is very friendly and forthcoming (sometimes to a fault). His english 12 classes are sometimes hard or simply boring, lots of essay writing and sheets... but in the grand scheme of things he prepares his classes for the exams better than most teachers and ensures everyone achieves to the level they deserve.

A very successful teacher overall. His students are also very successful, in general. I definitely recommend this teacher if you are taking English 12. By the way, doing English 11 with him will be very helpful.
