Mr. Shim's alright. While he's very insightful and knowledgeable, he doesn't teach much. All of your teaching comes from the textbook. If you don't like that, you'll hate him. He's very nice though, and make sure to ask him after class for extra help!

Probably one of the greatest math teachers at Richmond Hill High School. He is an amazing guy, and you should feel blessed to be in his 11AP Functions class. Provides lots of very insightful life advice as a bonus :)

His 11AP class was really hard. Unless you make regular trips to Olympiads or you are amazing at picking up math really fast it's going to be a struggle. But honestly my math skills improved so much over his class so if you're willing to sacrifice your mark and pick up some extra stress I would highly recommend his class. Mostly self taught would be my only critique.

He thinks his class is the most important course in the world and that students will always do their homework. He's a really cool guy to talk to but most of the course material is self-taught.

Scholar: In grade 9-10, he's pretty easy. Grade 11-12, very hard. Teaches Grade 11U like 11AP. He's a great teacher: open, funny, and very enthusiastic about math, and tries hard to make sure all the students are doing well. He makes fun students too, though generally in a good (very funny) way. When it comes down to the work, it is pretty difficult; he is undoubtedly one of the harder teachers. Read the textbook well, and work a little extra for the mark you want.

Great teacher. His tests are not hard but just worded in a way with funny names that throws you off. If any other teacher had his tests but changed the name, the students would do perfectly fine.

Mr. Shim is honestly one of the coolest teachers I've ever met. He can be extremely repetitious with his cliche sayings though. The course is 95% self-taught - be prepared to befriend your textbook.

As a teacher, I can't really say that I'd want him a second time. I think the worst part of it is that there are times when you truly are horribly confused, your deskmate is horribly confused, and so

Much too easy compared to last year's 11AP teacher. Had him for data and is better suited for that course, although he DOES take up class time with irrelevant stories. Knows his data well though.

Too much time spent on stories, not enough on actual lessons. Had him for Grade 11AP, and was not satisfied with his teaching. Often doesn't know what he's doing. Easy to get 90 if you're ok at math.
