amazing. cant even begin to explain how much he understands how to explain concept to us. although he roasts his students a lot, you'll learn so much math and have a really deep understanding. I have della this year and it is a TOTAL LOSS

One of the best math teachers I've had. He's very clear and won't hesitate to help if you ask. As long as you try, he probably won't call you out on anything, but if you blow off the review work your grades will really suffer.

Very smart and intense individual. Has a quick wit and uses it often in class, but will not hesitate to call you out if you aren't up to his standards. In my experience, he is not the most sensitive teacher, but is never unfair with his statements or actions. Very good at teaching. Information is clear and concise.

Really high expectations (as previous rating states). Great teacher, interesting jokes, captivating and usually clear teaching style. Quite intimidating at times, and will hunt you down if you do not show up for class.

Very tough teacher that expects alot from his students, but no more than what he expects of himself. Very organized, on top of things, and although intimidating or condescending at times, is the best math teacher I've had. He's very serious about the classroom and projects that seriousness to his students.

Often very rude and condescending. Seems to think he's the best math teacher out there and refuses to admit when he is responsible for a student not understanding or a class doing poorly on a test.

VERY FUNNY TEACHER. And very knowledgeable. It's amazing what he knows. Calculus class is really fun with him, and it's not overly difficult - as long as you do the homework and/or do the review questions before tests you should be in perfect shape since he lets you know exactly what COULD be on the tests. At the same time his sense of humour is really good :)

He is a great teacher because he gives clear expectations of what he wants and if you fulfill them, you will do well. Fantastic teacher too.

If his teaching style works for you he's great. If it doesn't, he doesn't know how to help. I do think he really tries, but he doesn't really understand math anxiety.

Mr. Simpson is...interesting. I was really scared of him at the beginning of F1. He's better now. He teaches us the most random things that don't even relate to math. Fair marker!!
