He is the most immature teacher I have ever had in my entire life. I remember asking him questions about material, and him answering with "Just do it because I say so" instead of explaining the theory. He showed us videos on youtube instead of actually giving a lecture. He never wore shoes in class, and he often made students cry. He flat-out told me "Maybe you're just not good at math", instead of answering my question. I'm in Engineering now, so maybe he was just a terrible teacher.

He is the best teacher to split the best from the worst students. He will give you exams that have nothing to do with normal exams and you will have to give the best out of your knowledge. And there, the study maniacs that only get good grades since they study fall and the smartest rises. I love that philosophy.
He can make some jokes about you, but consider him like a person who tries to help you and don't mind it. If you happen to fail an exam, meet him in recup!
Best math teacher for SN

Doesn't feel like he wants to be there. Instead of teaching theory he tries to teach by providing examples, and giving us problems and trying to have us "figure it out". Chucking us in the deep end if you will. And while I enjoyed that a lot, I could tell it was taking it's toll on other students who were struggling to keep up. The material is convoluted and is provided in no particular order. He is, however, one of the few technologically literate at Felix.

Worst teacher ever. He is incompetent, lazy and he WON'T answer your questions or teach math. He isn't doing the job that he is payed to do, that job being teaching math (not organizing trips).

I admire him for the effort he puts into trips. But in our time (before reform) it was a horrible time for those in sec.3 He didn't teach Algebra and said if anyone wants 436, study by yourself. It was very stressing. He wasted a lot of class time and didn't answer smart student questions. He also ripped your exam if you asked too much questions about it (specially if you got 90%+). He's a good guy, as person, but makes 436 a hard to reach dream.

He should be the organiser for trips. He's not a very good teacher. Although he tries to let the ones who deserve to go to 436 (good thing) he doesn't teach algebra, so you have to study for 436
