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 :(.

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.

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

He spends more time out of the classroom than he is in. He is a poor teacher with a military style of teaching.
