I had Mr.Yu about 2 years ago and he was one of the best teachers I had. He was rocking his thick British Chinese accent that somehow I understood, and he has a PH.D. Very helpful too. He also promised us fake $100 bills to give to us whenever we did our assignments for spending it on bonus marks on tests, but we never got that.
Mr. Yu is now retired but only after he's gone that you realize he was actually a great teacher. He talks in great detail about other topics and is more of a life teacher than a math teacher. He was pretty good at teaching but boring. If you pay attention, you could honestly take a lot out of the lessons. Having him is actually better down the road since his "wisdom" was actually pretty accurate. All the other math teachers are too easy or too hard and don't teach. Mr. Yu was alright.
Extremely helpful and dedicated on helping students. Amazing math teacher!
only after you graduate you realize how great a teacher he is. commits a lot of time before/after class to helping his students. dude has a phd and could probably be working somewhere else for more $ but his passion is unmatched
This is where the word "Purabolicur" Originated from...
Knowledgeable on all the topics he discusses but goes through them in a very linear manner, making the class very boring. His little mistakes in the problem solving process wakes the class a bit but takes up a bit of the class time. He's a very nice and silly teacher, but because of this, some of his students don't listen in class, they start to chatter nonsensically thinking that Mr. Yu will always let it pass by.
He's really nice, but he can't teach. He knows his stuff, just.. can't teach it anyone. If I were you, i'd try to review or go over the stuff before he explains it. His accent is really strong too.. a
He's one of the friendliest teachers at school! He is always positive and devotes his time to help his students, no matter how long it takes. But, I find his classes to be a bit boring and confusing.
He is really nice. He has Ph.D in math so he knows his stuff. you can talk all you want and he won't yell at you.
A very nice and kind teacher! Devotes his time on his students!
he's a very good teacher. to those who are getting poor marks, try doing the homework atleast instead of immediately blaming him.
Pretty easy teacher. I see him in bathrooms a lot. I don't know why though. Love how he always say " If everyone in the class gets an "A" on the quiz, we will have a pisssaaaa partiiii. "
-his accent is distracting, which makes him hard to understand, and he makes the simplest concepts impossible to learn. do the homework; its the only way to learn anything. hes funny and always there
His test is relatively easy and he explains everything thoroughly which everyone admires. However, I feel bad that no one is willing to participate in class :/
He's a nice teacher, helped me a lot, and when the whole class failed he gave retest and taught everything again which was nice of him. Explains things that are really simple tooo lonnggggg.
A well intentioned and passionate teacher who doesn't seem to be able to bring his ideas across the class. Nevertheless, he is funny and tries to help you as much as he can. He has hard tests though.
has a passion for teaching but not effective-- so bad teacher. hes a super nice person though but in math, hes really unclear and just doesnt bring the point across
He wasn't able to explain a section very clearly and it caused my mark to drop 4% because of a quiz based on it. THIS IS GRADE 12 MATH BTW! Quite important.
HE IS AWESOME. I love his accent and he's (unintentionally?) hilarious. He's always happy too. He's not really the best teacher, so you have to figure out things yourself.
He is truly dedicated and devoted to help his students succeed. I have received countless hours of help on Fridays (=. His random stories encourage me most of the time. Mr Yu ftw!
well he is a good teacher but he is so BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!
He was the only teacher where I have ever achieved a B in math in high school -- SAD right? I guess that just proves he is a very good teach. Don;t know why ppl always made fun of him..
OMG mr yu keeps explaining the same thing over and over again his class is so boring he aint cool he doesnt like me even though im getting a good mark :)
he's a good teacher! his classes are hilarious and i wish i had him again this year
he seems really happy doing his job, but he can sometimes make explaining something that I would normally understand right off the bat seem so confusing. I like him though.
haha he would be like "test on friday" and the minis would be like "nooo we have a science test that day! change it please!" and he would. hes really really nice. his accent is funny. one banner. xD
If you need help, chances are he'll be there from 7:15 - around 5, on some days. I like his "one retest/ term" method, which gives everyone a chance to improve their marks.
I've never had as much fun in math at Gladstone as in Mr. Yu's class. He's dedicated to his work and to his students.
talks with a funny accent... who cares! awesome guy. "Work hard, play hard" -- Quote Mr Yu :D
he's too nice, when the students dont appreciate it. students dont appreciate the time he takes to have make up tests and tutorials every day of the week
Very dedicated, he knows exactly what he's doing and loves what he does. I love Mr. Yu.
hes really nice..but give u hw u might not even understand
Very sincere, dedicated teacher. There is a photo of him sitting on the floor inthe hall with a student, explaining math. A very true teacher.
we really dont understand him... he makes the easiest things hard..
i believe dat hes a good teacher but...his methods are confusing, his clearness is bad, he makes the simplist things hard, gives us hard hw + so on....
I think he shoudln't give us too much home work, but he tries to teach us well.
he a fun teacher, but his teaching methods are REALLY confusing. the simpliest things seems hard...
He teaches us these simple things and gives us 10x harder homework..I don't like his methods of teaching..okay guy..
im sure ur a nice guy but i cant understand u so thats kinda makes it hard
hes okay... but he goes so fast and its hard 2 understand him sumtimes :S
hes alrite, but i blame my classmates that im not learning nething from him... (classmates wastes too much of classtime for help on hw --; EASY hw)
CAN'T UNDERSTAND A THING!! and the notes are totally useless
i can't understand his methodz...he does really make it harder to understand...but he's really nice and helpful, sort of makes me like math more
i love his teaching method, i like laught at him in class but i learn
He helps alot of thing to do with math........ The best math teacher ever.... I had so far
i could teach math better than this guy. he made me hate math so much...i just pushed me to missing more and more classes...my dog teachers better math.
There are waiting lists to get OUT of his classes. NUFF SAID.
a teacher who can make you hate math so much you start to hate your other courses too...beware try to get out if you can...
oh jeez, mr.yu- i cant understand his wierd methods- makes us do it the hard way
