Mr. Suderman was one of the best teacher I've had in my life. He made chemistry enjoyable and was without a doubt my favourite teacher. I was terribly upset when he retired, but I was glad he retired when I was graduating from high school back in 2014. A lot of students were just reluctant to approach him for help, he would always help any students who were willimg to ask a question. He was the most understanding teacher I had. His explanations were always consist and straight to the point. 5/5

Suderman didn't teach anything to me except the lesson on how to be self-sufficient in my own learning. Because of him, I learned to self-teach myself concepts since grade 9. If your lucky, the practice exams may be your actual test.

His stories can be entertaining, but they will never be about chemistry. He avoids "teaching" the hard stuff; he "teaches" stuff that everyone already understands. If no one has questions about homework, he'll sometimes throw in a pop quiz.

I hate him. He doesn't teach and we have to figure everything out ourselves when this new book makes no sense at all. He never explains anything, all he does is play his stupid sailing game on the computer. He expects us to know everything despite never being taught it. I would definently give him the award for "Worst Teacher at North". Hey suderman, if you're reading this, teach us instead of throwing worksheets at us and telling us to read the book.

i'll give him a good rating in ca.ratemybabysitter.com; all he does is sitting down there and keeps himself busy with computer (social networking?). Never teach, and admitted it since the first day that his style of teaching is no teaching.

he doesn't really teach. he makes you read the book yourself and try to understand it. but if you don't understand something and ask, he explains it well.

Barely coherent, self-discrediting, unhelpful. He is by far one of the worst teachers. Often digresses into pointless tangents. Only good for wasting time and training in the art of selective hearing.

A lot of quizzes, but fair in that you should be doing homework anyway. Doesn't explain or teach all that well though, but overall still a good teacher.

He's actually a pretty good teacher but lots of ppl will tell u otherwise. You'll probably hate the quizzes, but they're only worth 10% (tests are 70%) and they give u a realization of what u have to kno for the test.. smart

Mr. S is really nice and fun to listen to. He teaches you a lot about life and what is right and wrong. However, sometimes his oral "test outline" are really unclear... so be careful!
