He's such a nice man. Class can get pretty boaring and tests can be hard. But he def makes it up for his nice and easy going attitude

He's alright. Clearly knows what he's talking about but should work on his lecture skills; he tends to ramble, repeat himself, and lose his train of thought. Genuinely nice guy though.

Hard to tell what he is thinking. Even you are a student he likes much, you will still be insulted in class sometimes or given a saturday schools. Not to good teacher on Global. But I think he's a very good teacher of AP Euro. He teaches extremely slow and can't control the behaviour of students.

The problem with his teaching is that he is old-fashioned. Methods of teaching are rapidly changing. We need more stimulating discussions to stay awake.
