mr assadi is the best pre calc teacher you will get. sad hes retiring because the other teachers are no where as good at teaching as he is. his teaching methods couldnt be simpler. biggest reccomendation for his class is split the work so you do a bit every day because some concepts are hard to grasp
Mr assadi is a math genius, teaches very old school, and is a great teacher. He gives a solid lesson that is very clear and short and then you can do your work or go on your phone but homework must be done by the next class. He isn't sympathetic in anyway. You must be prepared and no excuses. He taught me a lot and I really liked having him but if you are a slower learner drop out.
Very knowledgeable when it comes to math, but very old school teacher. If you want a good grade, you need to pay attention in class and do the homework. If you want help from him, you need to ask, and prove you've been paying attention.
He picks on students who complain about bad grades but give all of 0% to the class. Don't be one of them, cause he can be super harsh.
He's strict. He's old school. But the guy can simplify even the hardest math problems for just about anybody. We need more no nonsense math teachers like him and not women who try and teach math with blocks and puzzles.
He was an amazing teacher. Made me understand math 9 and always made me smile.
This teacher is a genius at math. He even made his own proof. The worst part is that he is awful at teaching. He never gives us notes, and we have to copy down every single thing he puts on the board. Plus he is irregular and hard. He didn't give a single quiz for over a month and suddenly gave us two quizzes at the very end of the term that were sooo hard. It's hard to communicate with him because he rarely gives help to students.. A good mathematician but an awful teacher.
Yes, sometimes he can be a bit harsh. If you do not plan on going into courses with heavy math load he is not a great teacher for you. However, if you plan on going into engineering or other math-intensive courses he offers a different mindset or approach that is not typically taught in this area. This can be extremely helpful since if you have trouble solving a problem the 'common' way, try solving it the 'Assadi' way. Try hard + do all homework = good grade, even on pop quizzes (which suck).
he is the worst math teacher I've ever had he doesn't teach any thing and if a student is having trouble like me he doesn't help at al he just makes it harder if i could switch teachers i would. 0/10 would never be apart of mr asadi's class again
He's a great teacher because I can play with my phone all the time and not listening to him. I spent 99.9% of his class time playing my phone for a whole year. Most of the time I'll need a charger for it. Also, I enjoy playing chess with my friends at class time. His tests are super easy, I hardly spent any time studying AP calculus at home and I still get a 95%. It's one of the best teacher I've ever met.
Give out random marks and unresponsible
Very good math teacher, knows exactly what he's talking about, and is quite humorous. Disregard the rumors about how he isn't a good teacher. Go to his class and pay attention, do the homework and you will be rewarded. This guy really prepared me for university.
Assadi is a genius. Not just at math and calculus but teaching as well. Most don't realize because they have never taught before. He loves to tell you that you are going to have a quiz and then not give one, or random pop a quiz on you when your not expecting it. He keeps you on your toes and if you don;t do your homework you won't do very well. He starts the year as a very strict teacher with a lot of rules, but once things get settled things are more relaxed. He's actually a very funny person.
ceeennn-teeem-0-toooor is how he says it but if you have him its not all bad he teaches a good hard lesson for 10 20 minuets and lets you work the rest of the time
keep your work he will do binder checks
At the beginning of the year, he told students he was not going outside of class time to help students (so he wouldn't do lunch time/after school tutorials). He yells at a student for something but if another student does the same thing he'll let it go. He does not spend much time enforcing theories/new concepts. Gives quizzes one class after teaching a new idea. He picks favourites. It is hard to get on his good side. He has EXTREMELY high expectations. SWITCH IF YOU EVER END UP GETTING HIM!
Do your work and you'll do fine. These other comments are just sour from doing poorly in his class, although lack of effort will cause you to do poorly, but I mean that's pretty obvious.
He cares about his students. He wants his students to succeed. Although he's harder than other math teachers, he gives many bonus marks which bring marks up like 6%
he's a genius, but can't convey it to the students. he's condescending and unhelpful.
K, so asadi's actually really smart for everything that we do. but the only problem is that he does not understand to follow curriculum. He skips steps and does not teach the harder problems. he creates an amazing basis, b
WORST TEACHER EVER! He can do the math but he cant teach... wont ever admit he is wrong and he stole his method which doesnt work.
He is suuuuch a good teacher, he really prepares you for university
I understand that he is a math genius... So what? It's mostly impossible to understand his teachings!
really smart but he's a horrible teacher. im getting 72 but he won't raise it to 73. overall he's not really helpful and his quizzes are almost impossible
VERY smart. Insanely smart, actually.. his quizzes are so difficult, but holy crow he knows his stuff xD
he teachers terribly. always leaves the class and had frequent spazzes. however, he knows his stuff.
"Questions? Ok I teach." He pushes students' ability. Keep up with work, ask questions, be polite.
If you do homework, try hard, find him during spare time, you will succeed in his class.
assadi is a classic comedian who is smart but doesnt teach very well. got a high B last year and now im barely passing
He is a genius but just isn't a very good teacher! He does not give helpful notes or follow up with students who are having a hard time.
he is really smart he can do big problems in his head and he is not very helpfull but he is a good teacher wat bugs is that he says person instead of %
Seriously i don't know what to do in his class. He is the Smart and sometimes helpful. But his quizzes and tests are way, tooooooooo hard.My mind freezes when i take his tests.
i am a girl and got 67% in his class, and i still think he's the best math teacher ever. i got 95% on SAT 's & am getting an A in uni math bc of him. funny genious. fav class gr12
Certainly not the easiest guy in school, but he really makes Calculus interesting. Nice guy, pretty funny too. Amazingly smart. Really in a class of his own.
he's really smart and explains thingsp pretty clearly however he dosent offer help outside of class so how does he expect people who dont do well in his class 2 get better?
unhelpful to struggling students. i guarantee that anybody who gave this guy a good mark got an A and is good at math.
very nice teacher, i really like his method of teaching,,go IRAN go
well everyone knew that he is a freaking hard teacher, but he is a good guy and pretty smart also
I think he's an amazing teacher! I would have taken math this year if I knew he'd be teaching me. He has a great heart, and I love the method in which he teaches. Two thumbs up!
The worst thing that happened in my high school days is that I had his class in gr12 !!
not helpful, very confusing, yeah, he's smart, but disconnected, distant, and an awful communicator.
he's a good teacher, but he just needs to smile once in a while ya know?
I know he is smart but he is not a good teacher because he always forcing students to solve question with his Stupid method.
A very smart man for sure; just not a very effective communicator. I didn't like his classes, but now that I've had a very bad calculus prof in uni, he's not so bad in retrospect.
he's totally harsh, but you get used to it after a while... just don't miss anything and you'll be ok
I was failing math last year this year im getting a B !! I think you ether get it or not
he's too smart so he thinks everyone is as smart as him, so he makes his tests so long and u barely ever finish on time
smart man, not a great teacher however. Expects everyone to think as fast as him. Seems to be unaware that he's been doing match longer than we've been alive.
He's a good teacher..if he likes you..he eases up as the year goes on but he teaches us a lot of thigns that we don't really need to know...
well...it's like this...if you get it, you get it...if you don't get it, don't ask o.O
Mr. Assadi is amazing. He's always helpful and he's hilarious. If you take your own notes and as questions, his class shouldn't be a problem!
hes good at explaining things....unbeleivably hard quizzes
This man is a genius. If you listen in class your guaranteed to get great marks. he is hilarious, not many people understand how this great man's mind works.
An excellent calculus teacher - he'll prepare you extremely well for university math. In fact, you might find yourself really missing his class!
Worst calculus teacher i ever had. UBC's TA's teach better than this guy......and he did his proofs in some very strange and confusing ways.
I last had him in Grade 8.... man do I miss him! He was the best math teacher I ever had!!! C'mon guys show the man some respect! he deserves it
He's very smart, but he isn't very good at teaching math...
Good at teaching, but not what he's supposed to be teaching. Found the fellow sitting in front of me more helpful.
He yelled at me for sitting sideways in my desk. I don't mean like hey dont sit sideways one time, i mean like every day, and he even pulled me out of class, and threatened to switch me into another class.
does not explain things cilearly (intentional wrong spelling because that's how he pronounces it) Very smart but very hard
You a good teacher...You helped me a lot throughtout the year. Although my marks aren't that good, you still encourage me and help me. Thanks!
hes a good teacher but how many times do u gotta go to tha bathroom in an hour? :p hes a gud guy tho...PeRsIaN pRiDe dats right
good person, good teacher, could try to open up a lil more
huh...i wonder if i'll get better grade when he sees this^^
