Mr. Kwon is a good teacher in an unconventional way. He will not explain concepts in class that he thinks one is capable of teaching oneself from a text book. He will give you no notes. He will expect you to show up to class having already reviewed the designated material. And he's not impartial either; he has favourites. Ask for better marks? He will deride you. But ultimately, he won't teach you chemistry so much as he will teach you to be independent and responsible for your own studies.

It's undeniable that Mr. Kwon really has the biggest heart at the Abbey. He may not be showing it in his classes every time but he's truly a softie when you come and ask him for help. I've struggled a lot in his grade 12 class but I survived because of his encouragement. Sometimes a teacher's words of wisdom and care are really what a student needs. He would tell you not to worry about marks and instead he wants to see his students' hark work and understanding of his teachings.

Mr. Kwon is a very nice man, however his ability to teach the average student falls beneath his grasp. He flourishes in the accomplishments of his AP students, and thinks that his teaching is fine....it is not. I am here to say as a grade 12 student in 2015 working very hard, his class is extremely discouraging. Hope you read this, and actually try to help the average student more, especially with exam prep.

Kwon...spends half the class talking about something totally irrelevant to the lesson. BUT! its true when he says marks don't matter. He cares for you and please go to him for help when your totally confused. One of my favourite teachers, i didn't get the best mark in that course but i did get into uni!. Oh, he likes TedTalks a lot....just sayin. and he does care about you, only if you show inetrest in the course. READ THE TEXTBOOK OR YOU WILL FAIL THE QUIZ/TEST/EXAM. Great teacher

Kwon has the biggest heart in the school. He's only hard on his students cause he really wants them to be prepared for their future. He is such a good man and puts so much time into his students! If you stay focused in class you won't have a problem, he doesn't care about your marks he justs wants you to understand the concepts of sciences.

He knows his stuff, theres no doubt about that but he doesnt convey it particularly well to students. He has a good heart; not gonna lie, he just doesnt show it often. He can make a couple sarcastic jokes here and there but he definetly means business.

OHMYGOSH! I had him for niner science and i didn't understand a thing. He's hilarious and tell you the most randomest things but when he teaches pay attention. Otherwise be prepared to fail because you won't get ANYTHING.

kwon is very poor at explaining things. he likes to skip steps and leave out alot of (maybe obviouse to him), but crucial information. he doesnt start easy and work his way up he starts at the hard stuff and expects you know.
