He is absolutely ratchet. Last year I had him for SAT, we didn't do anything, he never cared about our work and we didn't understand him. This guy left and we happy, Adler is the new SAT teacher now. But I'm kind of worried about Adler's work method.

he talks so much, I ask a simple yes or no question and I get a 40 min explanation. He never teaches and always goes off topic. Whenever some kids do work from other classes he says its not part of sat and makes them stop, but what he teaches has nothing to do with sat. He never shaves his beard or cut his fingernails. I have no idea how he marks, he never even gives any tests. Every time he asks a question I put my hand to answer, but he interrupts me and starts answering his ow question.

this teacher is very talkative and unhygienic.(his fingernails are so long and he wears the same bland old rusty clothes everyday) He doesnt know how to mark and definately makes up the marks randomly.(maybe from a drawing hat? iunno) That's not the point. When you get to gr 8/9, his class is fun because he guides you well with your plan and provides good tips on the machinery. Woodworking is very addictive and the privilege to use his shop to make some cool stuff has been a fun experience

There is very little instruction in his class. He has evaluation criteria but he does not explain how to accomplish each task so students are set up for failure. Personally though hes a nice guy.
