Smart and intelligent teacher. Can be tedious at times because he marks hard, but he makes sure you understand the content and what could be improved on. Marks quick too
Strict, but makes sure you really learn and get prepared for future years. Awesome teacher!
very intimidating.. traditional teaching ways. very knowledgeable though.
Great teacher. He makes you strive for the best and teaches interactively.
A very understanding and knowledgeable teacher. I don't think that any other teacher is as great as him, I learned a lot in his class but I also enjoyed his class a lot. I've had socials 9 and planning 10 with him. He is a teacher who will always help students do their best and goes the extra mile to teach us more.
Excellent teacher. He makes sure that you are prepared for tests and is very fair when it comes to marking. He's the teacher that would devote a lot of his personal time helping struggling students. He doesn't assign that much textbook work, but rather through class discussion so students would actively participate and understand the information.
His class is tough at first but he really helps you understand the material and seems to care a lot about his students.
Probably the best teacher I'll have in my high school career. Even though he is very strict when it comes to grading, he prepares us for the future. He engages in classroom discussion and actually teaches us. He isn't like the other teachers who tell you just to read the whole textbook. Mr. Yu is extremely happy and willing to help his students to succeed... just amazing.
I don't understand why people complain about him. Mr. Yu is an awesome teacher! Had him for Socials 9 and Planning. He marks hard but it helps you get better in future classes for socials and in planning when he marks your resumes it will improve your skills to help you find a job. I hope I will have him again in socials 11, although I don't think I can risk having Christie again...
He is the BEST socials teacher in SLSS hands down. People complain how he's hard and stuff, and he is, but he is so inspiring and knowledgeable. I even took summer school for Socials 10 just to get into his Socials 11 class, I had him for Socials 09 and it was phenomenal, his games and debates are awesome and he has such fun projects that make you actually use your brain. He goes over many topics repetitively, but he prepares you for the SS11 provincial. One reminder, he used to teach English.
His teaching is unorthodox compared to others. If you're going to write a paragraph in his class, you need to EXPLAIN clearly. He also talks about how Richmond will have an earthquake (scary stuff). He's definitely a super hard marker but his way of teaching is very helpful. I am now more interested in Social Studies because of him!
I had Mr. Yu for planning 10. He's a good teacher... except he can see every single phone in the class and has a very annoying east coast accent despite learning English locally.
Extremely knowledgeable and helpful teacher. Would love to be in his class again
Omg he's the best teacher at school!!! he prepares his students well for the socials 11 provincial
Awesome teacher. Very smart, knowledgable, and just a cool guy in general. Shame he doesn't teach any social classes for Grade 12!
Wonderful, witty, and knowledgeable teacher. Had a lot of great times in his class "portaging" around the school with our "canoes" (desks) to explain the hardships of the NWC fur traders. I learned a lot in his class, and my socials mark improved a LOT from the previous year. One thing that kind of bothers me is the fact that I can't tell when he's being serious or joking at times because of his serious face... although, it makes the joke that much funnier when we find out he's just kidding.
Not the easiest class. But is helpful, witty, and should really be teaching more than highschool! What you put in is what you will get. Awesome teacher.
Very funny teacher with a darker sense of humour. Classes are fun and interactive but his homework is harder compared to other classes.
Smart teacher, sort of, but I find he's really unhelpful and boring. He also talks about very weird and random stuff. Like he talks about how Richmond will have an earthquake...very scary how he talks
Fairly decent. LargER amount of hwk compared to other teachers. Overall he makes fair jokes kind of like Mr.Parker. "I did that mistake to see if you're paying attention!" - Mr.Yu
GEOGRAPHY = BAD NEWS! The class is so painfully annoying and boring and he gives excessive amounts of homework and marks each of the assignments really hard.
Sometimes he takes verbal conversations too far... to the point of ridiculousness. Beat him once, and he'll try to get even
he is SO awesome. his class is my favorite class overall =). and he makes us laugh a lot XD .. aka, his class is super fun. But his class isnt exactly the easier class ever.
good teacher...didnt go to mcmath...haha whoever said that was WRONG
da best teacher u'll hv....luved his SS9 class....and looking forward to CAPP this year with him.....
excellent teacher, he knows those who wants to do well apart from those who slacks off, he treats everyone fairly. Prepares students well for provincial exam.
