Amazing teacher! Most people don’t like him bc he very sarcastic but he’s one of the most helpful teachers ever and is certainly very passionate about physics which is extremely inspiring. He is a fair teacher so if you don’t do anything in class and just talk he will just kick you out which is totally reasonable so pay attention and actually try if you want to do good. He’ll always be there to help with any questions you have.
Linville was a good teacher. The best in Wagner I believe. Although he was very mean in class, when I went for one on one help, he was patient and tried to explain it in the best possible way. He's nice if he knows you are genuinely trying. He's extremely smart and sometimes I think he just assumed the class knew what he was talking about (we didn't). For exams, look at old diplomas! He uses questions from them. And go back to his power points (bc they are all online) if you have to.
I agree all with other students who have reviewed him. He is sarcastic and make jokes in class. Ask help if you need he is great and help a lots. If you want to get good marks do quest a+ practice, every question on there is on his exams most of the time sometimes even word to word copy paste.
So rude and arrogant. Even though I don't have him as a teacher anymore, he still gives me looks in the hallway. He does know what he's talking about but he has no kindness in him AT ALL, he should remember he doesn't know what some students are going through.
When you get past his sarcasm and bitterness, he is very helpful and is an amazing physics teacher. One on one help with him helps drastically.
Linville is a great teacher, if you work hard. He was the most helpful teacher I have ever had, sat down with me for numerous hours helping me through every problem that I had. He is very accommodating if you deserve it and work hard for it. While being sarcastic, he is a fabulous teacher.
One of the teacher's who's class I genuinely enjoyed going to. He's very sarcastic and jokingly picks on his students a lot. Most of his classes consist of taking notes from powerpoints but he's always willing to help if you're having any problems! Overall; fantastic teacher, one of my absolute favourites.
Mr. Linville does nothing other than use his PowerPoint notes. They are repulsive and annoying. I wished he would actually show us how to do the problems. When he asks you to answer the question, you better answer, or else he will scare you a lot. He is a ignorant guy, but he really means well. I just wish he did more than just have us figure out the problems by ourselves. If you have applied to his class for Physics 20 AP as I did, drop out or you'll regret it.
Amazing physics teacher. Straightforward and can be a bit cranky at time, but when it comes to teaching he is extremely helpful. He has made physics my favorite course in high school. If you ever need any help, hes always there. Thank you for teaching me physics Mr.Linville!
If you can get past his constant teasing amazing teacher lots of jokes and fun but never will let you get away with slacking off.
He's really arrogant and likes to joke around with students but he's always more than happy to help. Just don't talk during class as he has no patience for that. Other than that he's an easy teacher to get along with, especially if you have cookies.
One of the best teachers at Wagner. Breecook should take notes on how to teach from him
Great teacher. He thinks highly of himself and likes to make fun of students for getting wrong answers, but he's great at teaching. One of the best science teachers I've ever had.
Physics is the only class in my life that made me feel like an idiot. Linville helped me get an A. Now I'm going into University sciences. It's funny how much that course has affected my life. He's one of the best.
Best Physics teacher. Has a great understanding of the subject, (even really advanced physics) and is willing to help at any time. Only thing is he pretends to be mean and dusgruntled but is actually really nice.
A GREAT teacher. He was always available for help, and he was extremely clear! A nice guy, but had no patience for trouble makers.
Awesome teacher. Makes physics very clear. Always available for extra help. Makes you think instead of telling you the answer. doesn't tollerate bad behavior
hmm i wasn't completely sold by his personality at all. he was a bit condecending at times, but he knows his physics and he is there everrryyy mornign when you need it.
What's with all the great comments??? Hes an ok teacher but makes fun of you if you dont understand it. I didnt learn anything in his class I had to teach it all to myself
He is the best teacher I ever had. My mark increased by 10% because he was kind enough to give us a make up exam. He teaches very very well. I never knew I could do well in physics
Awwww... Linville-meister!!! We had you for two glorious years, and next year we'll be gone :( Always willing to explain concepts and help his students!!!
Haha i love how he always makes fun of people in class for being stupid. He is a great teacher!!
Yup, Great teacher. Very Nice to us, gives respect to the students and can be quite comical. Also very good at making most of the concepts clear.
Not a push over, but you shouldn't need it, great teacher
