He taught one thing and tested us on something completely different. I don't recommend him to anyone AT ALL! Avoid at all costs!

He really knows his stuff and his lessons are really clear. His tests are kind of hard compared to the homework but if you study you shouldn't do too bad.

Great teacher, lessons are planned very well, and very humorous personality. He really drills format, format, and more format in your head, so you'll be very well-prepared for math in the higher grades.

Ok at teaching. At least he knows his stuff. But all he does is write on the board, and he spends too much time solving problems on the board instead of teaching new concepts.

Awesome teacher, hilarious, and competent. Marks fairly, and is very thorough with lessons. To get a good grade, you must work hard, but you are awarded if you do.
