1. He gets off topic way too much and acts like he knows a lot about college (claims he went to UCI but actually went to Cal State LA)
2. Really don't understand how he lasted so long at AHS, probably because he gives out free points opportunities to those failing his class, so it doesn't make him look bad. (That's the only way he helps students)
3. He calls students out and makes the whole room very awkward, he doesn't let students give an explanation and assumes that his judgment is right.
Obviously, Mr.Shen is awesome. He's so chubby and doesn't hesitate to help other students as well.
HE IS A AWESOME TEACHER
He is good in general, the only thing is that he teaches too fast. But I totally had a good time with him and he does help students a lot.
Salty but chill
Mr Shen, Jan Ning plays Hearthstone on bis phone every single day. Please enroll him in AP Hearthstone 4, he will get an A in that class.
We went here tonight as we had eaten Spanish meals for the past 3 x nights and wanted something different. OH MY GOD - the food is disgusting, went for the ribs and the oyster sauce beef with rice. The ribs looked like they were around a year old...like something you would give to a dog, stale charcoal like meat. The beef i cannot even confirm was beef, it tasted and had the texture of very slightly cooked bacon. Jn
I've had Mr. Shen for Chinese 4, and he's definitely one of my favorite teachers. He goes above and beyond for you; he taught the whole class a lot of life lessons (how to manage money, etc.). He cares about you a lot. Though he exams are not that easy, he was a great teacher and taught broadly.
i have mr shen for almost all of my high school years. he is the best teacher ever! he is so funny that u are awake in class almost all the time! if you study hard and do your homework, you will be fine in that class
Mr. Shen is a very fair teacher. Do your homework and study the homework that you do and you'll get a B easily. If you want an A you will have to study hard, but nothing much. He's class is really funny and he's really fun to talk to. He will be hard on students who don't try because he understands what they need to work harder; he doesn't hate on them.
He's a great teacher, and it's actually fun being in his class. He's very outgoing. He doesn't exactly mesh with the shy students, but he's pretty chill. If you try hard, you'll at least get an B. If you try really hard, you'll get an A.
This is literally the world's hardest teacher for Freshmen year. I was caught cheating in the library by Shen which i didn't even do. This teacher has some super weird questions and his tests/quizes are each week 2-3 while he does not grade fairly. He chooses favorites which is unfair and prefers 10th than 9th.
best teacher ever! i wish everyone could get him as a teacher!
I was in his AP Chinese class. He started out very nice until he began playing favorites. He's very cruel to those he doesn't like. I am a hard working student but we were like oil and water and did not mix. He gave me a horrible attitude when I just asked questions on homework. Hopefully you get on his good side, or getting your desired grade will be exceedingly difficult. He has no structure, and pretty much throws random quizzes at you. It's honestly a chill class, with it's downside.
Mr. Shen's class is honestly not all that hard. It is easy to get an A as long as you do your homework because that is what he bases all of his tests off of. However, because of this, you do not really test your knowledge of how much you know. The only thing I do not like about his class is that he is not afraid to call you out. If you are doing poorly in his class, he announces it to the whole class. He believes everyone does "mediocre work." Which is kind of annoying. He is also very moody.
Mr. Shen's class is really really fun but you have to work very hard in his class. Sometimes, students get caught off guard because the class is so fun and then forget about actually working hard. As long as you study, work hard, and don't be lazy you can get a decent grade. Sometimes the things he asks for is a bit far fetched but if you're willing to put in the effort, it should be alright.
To everyone's surprise, yes he does play favorites and is extremely ignorant. We do not go over lesson plans as thoroughly as we should and he's too lazy to provide written examples of the homework. He makes fun of students without acknowledging his own incompetence.
He has a good sense of humor, but I honestly did not like his class. I find that he's a bit disorganized and doesn't plan very well. And he's too harsh at times.
awesome chinese teacher!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cool teacher! Not only does he tell funny jokes and life stories, but he also goes out of his way to help struggling students. Put in the time to do homework and study, and you'll do fine.
Mr.Shen is amazing, I love it when he reads out our Mandarin texts while making up voices for the characters. He's a funny guy to have as a teacher. Not only does he prepare you for the AP Mandarin but he makes learning memorable and fun. I definitely recommend this teacher.
You might hate him while you have him but afterwards all you have is good memories. (: I had him for AP Mandarin (his last batch of sophomores!) and he was a hard teacher but he prepares you for the AP test really well, and he's funny and cool.. on the good days. He can be mean when he's grouchy though, so don't get on his bad side. Other than that after the course is over he's totally someone you'd want to stay friends with. (:
I had him for Mandarin 2 back in 06-07 (he no longer teaches that), Comp Sci and Web Page. He's easy as long as you do your work and turn them in on time. He is willing to help you when he knows you are actually trying and not just wanting to bs to get a boost in the grade. Always clear on what he wants. Pretty chill and cool. Like most people said, his grading is justified. It's your fault if you don't get the grade you want. He like to say the word "mediocore."
Super easy teacher in Comp Sci and Web Page Design. He plays favorites, but it is justified. The students on his good books are basically the ones who TRY in his class.
had him for web design. he's a pretty cool person. he makes the class really chill so you should sit with your friends. his grade system is completely justified so if you dont get a good grade its your fault. if you dont understand the material, he usually grabs someone he knows it and makes that person teach you so make friends with the smart ones. overall a very lax, fair class, dont expect too much help from him though. he only helps his faves but its not really much of a big deal most people play in cla
Had him for Comp Sci. Super chill class. The only reason you fail the class is if you get distracted by internet or friends.
Dude. He's the only Chinese teacher without an accent I had seen in all four years of high school. How is this even possible??? By the way, he's an awesome teacher. Pretty chill, if you're on his good side. If you're on his bad side...good luck surviving the semester.
He has the rare ability to make the class turn on the troublemakers. I like this very much.
Shen is a really cool teacher. If you have him, you are guaranteed to have a good time in his class. For AP Mandarin, he wasn't hard yet he wasn't easy. His homework andtests are pretty straightfoward. Honestly, if you just do the homework and actually study for the tesst for 30 minutes, you'll for sure get an A. And his tests aren't that hard; it's basically the EXACT SAME questions from the homework. He does have occasional bad days so just don't bother him when he's in a bad mood. DON't GET LAZY.
high expectations. no standards. hard at grading. not very good at teaching.. idk how he became a teacher. Goes way off to his personal life too much. Very poor instructions when giving out assignments and grades however he likes on test depending on whether he likes u or not.
He can be nice and his class could be fun, but he is very inflexible when it comes to grades. It almost seems like he enjoys seeing you fail. Not willing to negotiate either.
Very chill and always takes his time to help and talk with his students.
HE IS LIKE THE COOLEST TEACHER EVER! i have him for mandarin and computer science! he's so fun to talk to, if you really try he'll just give you a A (: coolio
Shen is the best mandarin teacher I've ever had. He's really funny and he connects with students. Although he assigns lots of hw and projects, they're all interesting. [may be moody sometimes though]
had him for mandarin ... hes pretty cool nd stuff, but his class is SOOOO HARD!!! it was like AP MANDARIN or something ... seriously, only natural speakers got A's in his classes ... but overall, fun teacher, fun class
shen is ok. he can be very moody and is not compassionate...so picky on tests, and never rounds your grades. good luck ppl
is okay at times. but he does a lot that overrides his "coolness," as many students have said. forget those kisd who put smilie faces. he can be a freakin ******* if he wants and he doesn't care. he doesnt care about you.
he's soo cool. it's a little hard in mandarin 3, not as easy as some people said he was [he's a little picky on tests] . had him for 2 years- fantastic!!
Shen is awesome for an asian teacher :] He's also a great teacher and doesn't take away my iPod if I get caught listening to it ^.^

I'm in his Mandarin class. He's a very outgoing guy. He's very understand and funny. I wish I had him again.
one of the nicest and most understanding teachers I know. Very open with students, very honest. Very intelligent, clear voice, very confident in class.
His test are tooooooo easy and never gives out hw. His class work only takes half the period.
Dude... Too bad i can't have mr. shen for 4 years...

I took his class last year. He's very good teacher. He helped students who want to learn a lot. I learned a lot of things from his class^^
He's cool, just do your work, get an A and he'll let u do wutever the heck u want. He plays alot of games too.
Just do as told and you'll pass. Goes prehistoric if you chew gum.
