Very grateful to this teacher. His work-ethic and dedication are remarkable, ensuring that each student has the opportunity to achieve success if they put in the time. Extremely approachable for questions and clarification, he knows the course inside and out and is always available for guidance. His signature use of YouTube videos is fun and creative and the little discussions on current news in the physics world are not only interesting, but demonstrate a passion for his subject!

Amazing teacher. Loves his work, puts all his energy into the job at hand. He will always give you a chance to succeed, and he makes the class a great environment in which to learn. Could not recommend Mr. Ball more, he is an extremely friendly and approachable human being as well as an intelligent and qualified teacher.
