No longer gives pop quizes like he apparently did in previous years; we received a minimum of two days' notice for every quiz, test, and assignment. Much better than some teachers when it comes to teaching too. However, he is lazy in marking our labs, and abandoned us in the middle of our diploma to a teacher who thinks HL and SL are the exact same :(.
His pop quizzes are horrible... THE worst teacher you could have for ib chem hl...
gives random pop quizzes and can't answer questions properly
He's really not that bad, I mean I can understand why students don't do exceptional, but I appreciate the fact he provides us with so much material like worksheets and I love syllabus he gives us before each chapter! As long as you do the work that he gives you and the Hebden questions, you"ll be fine. He does know his stuff, and SL isn't too bad.
He's not that bad. As an IB student, it just took a bit of time to get used to his system of teaching. Study your Hebden. Make sure to study what he's teaching cause he will give surprise tests. He is
His tests are hard. His actual teaching is okay, but you always have this lurking feeling that he isn't preparing you well enough for the IB exams.
i really don't learn anything from this guy. only thing that's keeping him his job is probably his seniority. have to do a shitload of studying all on my own to get anything he tries to teach.
learnt nothing. his notes are only understandable by him.he helps you if you ask, but it'll just make you feel even dumber because he brings in concepts you're "supposed" to know but you dont.
Very good teacher. He lets us work on homework in class and doesnt like to waste time^^ he teaches very clearly and if u listen, getting perfect on his tests is a piece of cake
Awesome teacher, knows his stuff, and teaches in an interesting way.
I appreciate his diligence in teaching but sometimes his assignments are tough. Overall an excellent teacher.
Gives really easy tests, assignments, quizes. Pretty chill
Hard teacher. He'll teach you like a prof. so be prepared for hard work and lots of studying. Do the work, do the labs, vocab sheets, booklets, etc. dont even think about cheating
OMG i hate this guy! he is SO loud all the time and never teaches and gives us LOADS of hwmk, vocab cards, exam review booklets? yells ALOT and TEACH US FOR ONCE? stop yelling.HARD TO GET good marks
I liked alot! Except how he gives you like a pile of work and tell you to hand it in by the test date.. he rarely marks homework if you don't do the homewokr he does mark your pretty screwed.
blah..that's what it is; with HARD, unexpected tests
Never had him as a teacher, but from a Peer Tutor view, he's awesome. He's casual, but not informal. You can have fun in his class, but he still keeps them in line. He knows a lot & is easy to talk to
a great person, knows a lot about life in general and can give solid advice on universities etc. but teaching wise.....not that good.
Okay at explaining, we end up wasting time, he's usually out of class, his ToK class..avg of 67% whereas the other 3 classes avg 90%+..chem's easy though and he's a nice guy.
very mean teacher and loud! i'm not even in his class but i can hear him from other classes far a way!!!!!
sooo much freetime in his class, great!!! a nice teacher overall
easy course, but don't learn much, still it's fun to b in his class
He spends more time out of the classroom than he is in. He is a poor teacher with a military style of teaching.
doesnt teach, never in class. gives out packages then goes to starbucks.
funny teacher...but umm...yea could work on teaching methods/ habits...i get time to slack though!
