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

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.

Mr. Best is an awesome teacher mainly because he is so smart, he is pretty strict when it comes to sharing lab results though.

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.

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.

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.

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.
