Aota is the man. He must really love teaching because this man clearly has better things to do with his time. You will learn a lot, he is the real deal.

All around great guy, rather humorous but he knows EVERYTHING about Bio. Every random question our class has he answers. His belt kills me, I love it haha. Hes honest and fair but some tests can be tricky. If you have a bad mark it's because you don't listen when he goes over what will be on the test.

The best science teacher I have ever had, if not the best teacher I have had. Extremely objective so marks are always accurate, true and fair. Intensely understands the course material, and is passionate about it. Good sense of humour which always keeps class attentive. Very helpful with extra help, and with completing the homework and utilizing the time provided to study, a student can do well in the course.

i found that he was ridiculously rude with my fellow students and i, but i guess the best teachers come with rude comments. Sumi Aota always knew exactly want he was talking about and made it verry clear if you didnt understand.....if you are in english emersion science, your best bet is to hope to be lucky enough to have dr aota for your teacher.;)

The man is much deep. Always loved when he released his opinions on subjects. Whenever he spoke about personal experinces and trips I was always inspired.
Science teachers should be interesting cats like Dr.A!
Pay attention, think deep, ask questions.
