He is a guy who understands his stuff but it feels like he has no way of teaching it well.

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.

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.

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.

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.
