Interesting man, little patience for foolishness. If you do your homework and pay attention in class you will do very well.

A very geeky and knowledgeable character with a fondness for science. Can occasionally come across as excessive with his humor, and I have witnessed many an instance where his intended fun and drama edges toward safety violations in the science lab. Interesting personal anecdotes, but out of passion he occasionally lets his F-bombs leak. Generally decent clarity, but I would appreciate a somewhat warmer and more welcoming demeanor. Simply put, hilarious but needs to grow up at times. 3 out of 5.

Very knowledgeable and charismatic guy. If only he wasn't so disagreeable and smug and was instead understanding and sympathetic. But whatcha gonna do? That's just how Mikey Mike the Paynester rolls.

He's a great personality, just be sure to admit your mistakes and tell him what he wants to hear. Don't make excuses.

He knows what he's talking about and shows great dedication and gives great advice in subjects even not science related. Tends to not cover every category smoothly e.g some in depth, some in general.

He's always been nice to me, but I can't stand the way he treats some students; it's absolutely awful. For that reason, I can't respect him. Chem went from favourite to least fav class in 2 months.
