One of the most amazing teachers I've ever had in a educational and a personal level, cares about his students, but doesn't hold your hand, which I like, very funny and one of the smartest teachers I've ever had as well, and his teaching methods are incredible, sad to see him retire this year, I have him for grade 11 chemistry right now, and am taking grade 12 chemistry next semester just so I can have him

I have never felt so terrified to go into an exam before. He didn't prepare us at all. I had to teach myself everything and once I had to figure out a whole unit while writing a test. Good guy, awful teacher. Sir should retire already.

You get what you put in, he doesn't hold your hand and you're probably not going to get as high a mark as you would like. That being said, one of the best teachers I've ever had. If you have the nerve

he kind of intimidates me so i don't ask questions, but he tells really funny stories. He goes really fast though, so its hard to keep up with what we are learning.

Pedersen is hilarious and one of the most memorable teachers but don't count on him to help you when it comes to the AP exam. We were all screwed. Buy yourself a guide and read the text book.

Once, he knew the stuff. Now, he knows most of it, but some holes have leaked out. To fill the gaps, he pulls stuff out of thin air! Awesome guy, though. I look forward to chem every day!

Well, he's a fun teacher, I'll give him that, minus the teacher part. Don't expect him to teach you the stuff, use the textbook and the assignments instead, but, deep inside, he does know the stuff.

Pedersen, you really need to learn to teach. Nobody can understand what ure saying half of the time. You can't just assume we know everything just because we are in AP.

Sorry Pedersen...you can be nice, but that's not your job as a teacher. Focus on your job...learn to explain. It's not a wonder that your students always do ter

when students get 5's in ap calculus, biology, english lit, language, etc, and then a 1 or 2 in chemistry, there is a problem.

he almost never explains the things that we learn. He just says, that it's AP.
But I guess he thinks, that AP means teaching it to yourself
