I don't see why everyone complains about him. There have been successful people in his class. Sometimes people just see his name on their timetable and give up :/. Not fair to bash him. A lot of the stuff people say is biased anyway. Maybe if your friends didn't influence you, you'd have a different opinion

Overall lit dude. Lessons are sometimes confusing but teaches you independent learning. The IB syllabus will become your lord and saviour in this class.

BRUH, this is a teacher you don't want. Doesn't teacher, hands out random papers and his notes are from 2012. When you ask for an explanination, he answers it by stating a different question and what that question means. We asked him in our IB class the same question 3 times by 3 different students and each got a different answer. Don't recommend, prepare to use the textbook a lot and RIP if HL

2 Weeks into grade 11 ib chem and he still hasn't taught us a lesson without confusing the entire class. And the two lessons he gave came with long talks about soy sauce stains on his shirt and talking about his family. He forgot to tell our class that we had a quiz and assigned an assignment without explaining it and he still hasn't taught the lesson for us to complete the assignment. If you get foot, get a tutor or switch out.

Mr. Foot may have Chemistry knowledge but he surely can't explain it without confusing the whole class. He jams units and tests as well as labs at the LAST moment making everything impossible. He doesn't even teach us lessons...instead, he tells us to go online and view his useless PDFs. I, as well as the rest of the class have been teaching ourselves everything. Very unorganized and he blames the students when they are confused. He also can't monitor his own class during tests! Worst teacher!

Confusing and a useless waste of a teacher's salary - Mr. Foot proves that, while one can know a subject, that does not ensure that they are somehow good teachers. Everyone on here is right in saying that he is the most unorganized person ever. His notes are handwritten and illegible. It honestly looks like chicken scratches! Terrible teacher, cannot teach. Sad that he's the IB chem teacher. Our entire class is on the verge on failure and apparently we're the "smart ones". Avoid him at all cost!

So disorganized and can't teach for his life! He makes upo his notes on the spot and based off his own knowledge. He is quite knowledgable but can not funnel all this knowledge into terms understandab

He is an amazing person, such a nice guy, but im sorry, he is very confusing. He is so brilliant, but he can't convey the points he makes in his head across to the students in an organized manner.

Let me tell you a story. He gave me a 60% on an assignment because I missed a section. I walked up and showed him that it was indeed there - all 20 pages of it. I then got an 85.
