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.

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.

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.

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.
