My first day in the science class I thought he would be a fun teacher but I found out later that his classes are kinda boring. I'm pretty sure he hates our half of the class and whenever you talk he gives you this weird look and says "children". We don't really do much in class, he just goes through a powerpoint that we can honestly go through by ourselves and we just watch videos. My friend just plays solitaire for a solid 80 minutes.
I was warned about how bad this teacher is and they were totally right. He was too lazy to teach the kids how to perform proper labs. They all became make work home projects. The student even had to learn all the physics for the labs themselves. What should have been 1 hr in class lab turned into expensive 12 hr projects at home. To keep parents happy and marks higher, he lets kids repeat parts of their tests over and over again till they get a good mark. This is not what I'm paying for.
This man can't teach. Nobody in class pays attention to him, people are either playing games on their tablets or sleeping, and he spends all of the class on youtube watching other people teaching science because he doesn't know how to teach. So confusing and almost impossible to learn anything from this guy
He answers student's question with questions. It is really hard to learn from him. When i sit in class it is so confusing it is almost to not feel like giving up and going on the internet
awful teacher. so confusing during class. makes jokes during class unrelated to the material. uses his phone during class.
Had to teach myself the entire unit... Going to extra help makes you even more confused!
Mr.H if your reading this make your clases more interesting. Also do more formative quizzes to make sure we understand what your teaching us. Improve your powerpoints
He can't teach which is why he make us watch crash course.
Very nice guy. Will always help you if you need it (take iniative and go to him!). During class, when he teaches, not necessarily a bad teacher. Does tend to go off on some tangents but understandable. Perhaps some more demonstrations would help. It can be difficult to visualize the mechanics behind the theory without seeing it firsthand. Maybe he should give more formative quizzes to make sure people know their stuff. Go Mr.Hitchcock! KY
Freindly teacher, I also learned alot, one of my favorite teachers. without him, I couldn't have gotten into a good university.
Very knoledgeable exteemly exteemly exteemly exteemly exteemly exteemly exteemly exteemly exteemly exteemly exteemly easy marker, kind, cool experiments, good teacher.
Class can be boring, But he is an extreemly freindly teacher. Probaly the nicest teacher in the entire school. I wish more people would appreciate him.
Very freindly, And it is easy to earn good marks in class. All the negative comments on this page make me angry >:(
Worst teacher ever, I can't learn anything from him, It's impossible to talk to him without it being social awkward, and worst of all, He singles out everybody that doesn't understand the material, Mostly 3/4 of the class, and pays his attention to the people that get it.
I had hitchcock before and maybe took a while to figure him out. there was some boring stuff but i eventually figured out that if i actually paid attention it made sense. I couldn't figure out though why some people were taking the course when they clearly didn't give a [email protected] about physics.
mr.hitchcock is so boring and he can't teach! he only talks to the kids who understand and the other kids don't exist in his mind. he marks extremely hard for no reason considering that I have to basically teach myself the whole unit. i have to distract myself in some way to not fall asleep!
As a teacher Hitchcock is very on-and-off. Its very easy to tell the material he enjoys teaching cause you actually get it, then theres the stuff that becomes monotonous and it really just bores the [email protected] outa you. Delivery is dull, but when he does experiments/in-class stuff, its really beneficial. Its a dull class, but he doesnt truly make it much better.
I don't think easiness really makes a good teacher, so that doesn't really matter to me. I think Mr.H can sometimes go on and on about something without realizing some people don't understand and when people ask questions the answer is sometimes not clear. I would prefer tests to projects, as would most physics students, but I understand the necessity of real application of physics. I like visuals in terms of graphs, but on the chalkboard, not the smartboard.
He is very nice. But so boring, I can't pay attention because I am half asleep!
I had him for a "sneak preview" of physics in Grade 8, and he made it really fun. He brought in one of those electro-balls that make your hair stand up.
