Mr.Kim is the best teacher I had so far. He is very knowledgeable of his content and can teach really clear. He is very helpful. You can literally go to him any time for help even in exam weeks. He will always be in rm.316 if you need extra help. I also like him because he is very flexible with time lines, and doesn't use textbooks often. He gives his own sheets and I thank him for that. His quizzes and tests will be pretty easy if you study and pay attention in class. I am so lucky to have him.

Kim is probably the greatest teacher cause he inspires his students to be more and to have more. But Kim is the type of teacher that you need to have at least a somewhat knowledgable concept in science to understand him. He isn't good at helping a completely new person cause he's just so knowledgable and literal that he can't put it in simple form. But you can ask him questions way beyond and deep and he can answer all of them. Great great great teacher.

I had Mr. Kim in grade nine, and while it was true that he could not easily control a rowdy class (our class was extremely rowdy, unfortunately), he taught very well and I had a great time! Despite his irritation with our class' tendency to be loud as all heck, his class was engaging and I learned a lot. Thanks Mr. Kim!

He has two sides to him. One very nice, caring, clear side and then the side you get if you push his buttons. He has difficulty controlling a class which is just unfortunate for him and once he doesn't like you, he never makes you feel welcome. As well as sometimes his lessons are boring. But he puts in the work and does try to make it interesting even if sometimes it doesn't work out.

I had Mr. Kim last year for grade 9 science, and I sincerely hope to have him when I'm in grade 11 and 12 chemistry, or "Kimistry" as we call it at Northern! Mr. Kim teaches lessons in a fun and engaging way, and if there is ever anything that you didn't get he is always happy to help you out.
