He is a guy who understands his stuff but it feels like he has no way of teaching it well.
What an awesome teacher! I got through university chem because of the foundations I learned in this class
Knows his stuff
he could be a really cool teacher if we wasn't such a bitter old man. he's obviously very smart and a good teacher, but he regularly engages in arguments with students, and continually calls them things like "illiterate". he's a hard marker and, honestly, scary to be around. a good teacher, but it's his problem with people he really needs to work with. can't say he's not interesting though, the fact he learnt to make balloon animals from a book is cool. overall very intimidating.
An awesome teacher. He is a little hard but that made my exam and tests super easy. He would talk about.... odd things most of the time but he's an awesome teacher
Hes a really good teacher, if you want a highschool course that youre actually going to learn something from than this is it. If youre polite than he'll be polite vise versa honestly dont be afraid to ask him questions because I think that he genuinely enjoys answering them and hes very clear and thorough
Definitely not my favorite teacher. There is no doubt he is a smart man, but definitely should be a university prof, not a high school teacher. He expects a lot, given very little guidance.
great teacher. if youre looking to use science in university take his classes. with him exams are a piece of cake and he actually knows what hes doing
I love Mr. Van B. He's obviously very intelligent, and explains things really clearly to the point of reiterating a lot. I think for the most part that the people who do badly are the stupid ones.
Oh please. He never said girls shouldn't do science - I am a girl, I am a PhD student in chemistry, and he has been the single biggest inspiration in my academic career.
Is obviously really smart. Teaching is very structured and if you follow along like a good little student, you will do well. Just do the work!
Amazing teacher! Strick- yes, picky- FOR SURE, but the amount he teaches you is outstanding. He is so organized and really puts a lot of effort into his class,which is rare to find these days. :)
i learned so much from his class! i switched teachers just so i could be in his chem class...great cross country coach too!
He is pretty self-righteous, can be condescending as much as anyone, but he makes sense. Way too intelligent to be teaching grade 9 high school chemistry. Not a cool dude at all.
I had him in the 90s as well. He laughed at me when I asked for help. I don't know why he's still teaching.
Had him in the 90's deducted -1 from my paper countless number of times for not stapling them properly...hahaha unbelivable....how many ways can u staple a paper
Great teacher, a little self-righteous, but a nice guy. And who DOESN'T want to know where he buys his super-cool pants?
VERY ANGRY MAN!! BUT THE BEST CHEM TEAH IVE EVER HADD!!! HE HAS THE BEST WAY OF TEACHING!!
he doesn't talk about where he buys his pants. Excellent chemistry teacher. Probably the best science teacher I've had so far (2nd year university)
If he only talked science you'd say he was boring.He was my favourite teacher at KCI.He's funny, clear and if you can follow simple instructions,you'll do well.
He Doesn't Know How To Explain Things Right. He Expects Every1 2 Kno Everythin..And He Talks About Where He Buys His Pants...How Is That Related To Science?
mr vanbrunschot is the best teacher I have ever had in my life!
Had him in 1999/2000. He was a very angry man back then.. but I hear he has lightened up.
Best teacher in the school if you ask me... He made 6.02 x 10^23 my favourite number.
