Hard to believe Mr. Cochran has gotten so many bad reviews. He's a really great guy and one of the few old school teachers left at Hamilton Wenham. Hes the type of teacher you can actually learn life lessons from as opposed to how to pass a physics test. I would highly recommend taking any of his classes.
Guy is a joke. Gives zero effort to help students learn while carry an arrogant and mean spirited attitude. I highly suggest avoiding this guy at all costs.
His teaching skills are rendered totally moot because of his narcolepsy.
Mr. Cochran is a great guy - really prepared me for physics in college. I enjoyed his class, and miss the projects. Often spoke with him about matters outside of physics class - a really nice, caring guy.
He was the worst teacher I have ever had due to his lack in social skills, patients and teaching. He belittles everyone including adults and students. I do not believe I learned anything about physics during his honors physics class. I have never met a student that has liked him as a teacher. I do not recommend taking any of his classes because the amount of work he assigns will double your total work load and the average test grade is about a 35 percent. His classes are not worth the stress!
He made class interesting and enjoyable, and taught in lots of different ways to reach different kinds of learners.
An excellent teacher, teaches to those of us who are visual learners...the reason I only had one A in High School Honors Science
