You learn a lot more with this Lau than with most other math teachers.
Make sure you know your stuff very clearly before walking into his classroom on a test day. If you don't work hard, the mark will reflect that.

University style. It's all about your self discipline and diligence. If you follow his relaxing and friendly atmosphere thinking everything is okay, then you're going to get punished real hard on the test. He is performing his job and lectures perfectly fair; there is no responsibility for him to ensure everyone gets a good mark. There are major gaps between certain people's marks, ranging from 100 to fails. It's your own choice.

One of the best and most knowledgeable teachers (in more than just math) at Pinetree. Goes off on tangents for half the block talking about Cambodia, University, and some interesting stuff... still manages to get in the day's lesson. Sometimes doesn't teach at all the whole block and talks about other stuff. o_0 Very casual/friendly with students. Not always on time for class. This rubs off on students who are also 5 min late to class. (lol) All in all, his class has a very relaxed atmosphere.

A great teacher. I have chatted, texted, and completed all my homework from other subjects in his class and he is so chill about it. That is if you know your stuff. He is a bit slow in teaching, but overall such a nice, cool, amiable teacher.

Very well rounded teacher. Taught kids who were stuck in Richard's terrible honours class about isomers and used to be a physics teacher. Im in his honours 10/11 class. I found his teaching rate too slow in the first semester, but good now (unless you can't deal 1 unit in 2 days which in that case, you should't be in honours). His explanations are very clear. It's fun when he goes off topic and FAIL in his attempt to make jokes. He kinda has an annoying voice though. BEST teacher ever!...so far

I have been in his honours 10/11 courses...i really dislike his teaching methods and found his tests extremely unreasonable and unfair at first. The way he assumes us honours kids is that we are all extremely knowledgeable and math gods (as he was a top student when he was in high school), so therefore he teaches us entire units in 1-2 days with a insanely long, and confusing tests. DO NOT take honours if you are in the LAU rotation because your marks will suffer tremendously (99 math9 to 88gr10
