certainly the best teacher for any science course I've ever had, its my second year with him and I've learnt more this year in chemistry than all my other years in the sciences.

Dr. Maurice is by far the best Chemistry / Physics teach you can hope to have in high school. I am now a successful structural engineer and I owe almost all of that to the foundation he provided in both physics and chemistry. No, he's not sympathetic if you lack effort but if you're willing to learn he will teach you. Years later I asked for help the morning before a university chemistry exam he came in early without a second thought.

He certainly knows how to do chemistry problems, but he doesn't have a great attitude towards teaching. If you're struggling or need help, he isn't very sympathetic.

He's the best teacher that I have had. There's never a boring class, but if you get offended easily, he isn't for you. As long as you study the crap out of his notes, you should be good for his tests. Although his tests are hard, they are fair.

He's one of the worst teacher I've ever met. His class doesn't make sense and the tests and quizzes are damm hard. He gives everyone a low mark and try to control the class average below 90. Most important thing is that, the notes are TOO MUCH

You either love him or you hate him. He rags on everyone equally; no, you're not being singled out for bullying; no, he doesn't hate you, he treats literally everyone like that. Very abrasive but a good and clear teacher. Notes are well written and clear, worksheets are very good practice for tests. Side note: don't ask his opinion on global warming. (He thinks it doesn't exist.)

Great teacher! He's hard but he knows so so much. If you listen there's NO CHANCE that you won't understand, his instructions are really crystal clear. Some people find him intimidating to ask questions to, but all you gotta do is step up and ask him. He will help you, but be prepared for light teasing if your question is obvious of if he already went over it. He's also really funny. Just don't sit front row if you want to keep your hearing by the end of the year! His voice penetrates! good guy

Dmo is a very knowledgable teacher, who makes learning about chemistry in high school worthwhile. I personally took his class to prepare myself for university and NOT to "boost" my average. So keep that in mind.

His class is always a good time, he is so opinionated we always end up off topic and arguing about some random thing. He is probably one of my favourite teachers, just study hard and take time on his multiple choice.
