Terrible at explaining, doesn't prepare you for the final! He's weird and funny but not a wise choice if you want to do well!

Had him for Calculus 1, very enthusiastic, can be a bit angry sometimes during class if you are not paying attention, and his class notes sometimes isn't that clear. That being said however, he is EXTREMELY helpful during office hours and i guarantee you'll get a good mark if you go see him during office hours. You just need to get into the "osborne" teaching style lol and youll be fine.... all in all pretty jokes teacher
Prepares you very well for exam

I think that this is an INCREDIBLE teacher! I wasn't happy to be stuck with him at first, after reading other reviews on him. I feel like he prepared my class VERY well for the final. He gave us plenty of material to study from, and who ever did poorly didn't do enough examples. He is VERY helpful, and I will take him again. He is also very funny. most of my friends who had other teacher told me they found the final exam very hard, and weren't prepared enough, I felt that Mr. Osborne prepared me

He is a very good teacher for Cal 1. his tests are relatively straight forward but you really have to study well for the final. if you understand math well, you will not have difficulty with him.
