One of the smartest teachers at hillcrest hands down. Had him for both physics and Comp sci and he is very smart in both of those fields. His classes are interesting and he will offer extra help to students near tests. Overall great teacher.

First off ask him about his red wagon of rocks he drove around his neighborhood, it was truly inspirational. Very smart in all areas , you can ask him for help with anything, he might start to hide from you though... He cares if you do, so CARE! Funny guy and makes lessons interesting.

Nelson is super smart but e often rushes through things or explains them in a way which students don't completely understand. He such a fun guy but if you're taking his class prepare to suffer through cycles of confusion and understanding on a daily basis

Nelson isnt a bad guy, he just gets too focussed on helping the kids who want to do extra, rather than the kids that need the basics. I struggled through his class, and watched him help the smarter kids instead.

Probably the most intelligent teacher I've ever had. That being said, he needs to concentrate a bit more on the students in the class who are struggling and encourage them to come in for extra help. I

This guy worked for NASA but instead he teaches us kids instead. That is commitment right there. He cares and whenever I asked for help, he would always try and suceed. He's a brilliant man.

Nelson needs to get organized for class. Needs to teach using methods, not by examples. He teaches what you should have done on the test after the fact. Needs to explain theory more. However, he knows EVERYTHING! (Literally, we're not kidding) This has been extensively tested.
