He and Mr. Key are the best teachers I've ever had at Ross. He drills everything into your head so well because he explains everything so clearly so you can understand. Would love to have him again.

He was the greatest science teacher. He was so clear with his lessons and concepts. Not a totally hard marker, but challenges you to do your best. By far the best science teacher at the school.

Absolutely fantastic teacher-he is very good at delivering the course content! Because of him, I realized just how much I love biology. He truly sets a standard for how teachers should be. 250 characters is not enough to describe how good he is.

He really is a great teacher! He explaines stuff very well, and uses good analogies. Although he tends to be very repetitive, it makes things stick in your head. A very fair marker too. Good teacher!
