Best is an okay teacher but he needs to just let us redo our labs, other IB schools let their students redo labs so why not us?
Here's the thing: He teaches IB Chemistry. The course is supposed to be hard. The exam is supposed to be hard. Don't take the class if you're not up for it. He knows his stuff very well, and is very methodical in his approach. There will be weekly quizzes. If you don't understand the material, he will know and it will show in his stuff. If he asks you a question and he knows you don't know, it's because he believes putting you on the spot will make you remember better. He is a damn good teacher.
Mr Best is an okay teacher but he needs to work on helping students- forget what the rules are and just tell us if we did our labs right or not!! plays favorites, especially with the girls
He played favourites so much, and he never put in an effort to help the kids that needed it
His analogies are pretty helpful. He's a good teacher.
Mr. Best is one of the smartest teacher's out there, but getting help from him is really hard. The course he teaches is incredibly hard, not him in general. Good teacher, bad course.
He is funny and great. The cource is a little difficult but, if you put some effort you will be fine.
Mr. Best is an awesome teacher mainly because he is so smart, he is pretty strict when it comes to sharing lab results though.
Awful, just awful Provides no help whatsoever. Helpfulness should be a -5, he actually makes everything worse.
It's not his fault we hate his subject! I think his analogies are great, help to clarify the notes....I dislike the IB requirements, not him! I'll be happy to be in his class again next semester.
He's a bro. Huge nerd, which is great cause he tends to joke around in class about chem. Don't think I'll ever forget the dude. It was a pleasure to be in his class.
He is super super super nice!! If you care about the course he'll know and make sure that you do well!! One of MMC's teachers that care!! Can't wait 4 next semester with Mr.B!! :)
ha awesome teacher even though i never had him....MR BEST IN ROOM 1 because he is the best.
Poor explanation of notes (notes themselves aren't bad), poor attittude, hypocritical at times. I think chemistry would have went better for me with a different teacher.
very uncool - he picks on kids he thinks don't know the answer, just to make himself look smarter
I think the problem here is that he has reached a level of such high efficiency in his teaching methods that things just aren't fun anymore.
Actually the meanest person I've ever met in my life. Very condescending and demeaning.
once kicked me out for eating in class. keeps notes on all students. makes you sign them when you've done somethig wrong.
He was good, but he did pick on some people if you didn't know the answer
he's different, but his class is fun, he's a great teacher as long as you do the work, and once you get over his awkwardness, he's approachable.
seemed to be very unprofessional and did not help my child get through the course.
Mr Best made me hate science, he has a very negative attitude towards everything except talking about space. I dont think a worse teacher exists
He is a little odd but understands good notes. Pay attention to the overhead and you will do fine. Warning! Quizes weekly Downside: kinda of picks on students who don't understand.
He knows peoples weaknesses, and picks on you when you dont know the answer. I hate him!
Wonderful teacher. He obviously knows his stuff and wants the students to know it too. He may be strict, but he gives great notes and can almost always answer your questions.
he's an odd man sometimes but a very very good teacher none the less.
