honestly a great dude and teacher. sometimes he can be a bit moody and sometimes rude but everyone has those days and it's fine because he really does care about his students in both xc and t&f. he explains the math in a way that is easy to understand even for me (i'm really not great at math haha). and he always checks for understanding to make sure you understand what is happening.
I've had Coach Scott for four years as a Cross Country and Track coach, and one year as a teacher. I have to admit, I don't like Coach Scott when he's in a bad mood sometimes, but I still respect him as a Coach and as a teacher because I know that he would always be there to have my back and help me with problems that I might've had in my personal life or his class. As long as you pay attention, do you HW, and study for tests, you have the recipe for success. If you're reading this Coach, thanks
Truly amazing personality
Hi, I think Mr. Scott is a great teacher. His explanations are straight to the point and info gained is easy to absorb. As long as he isn't teaching something more advanced, he lets people let their phones, which is great. Overall 5 stars!
Oh the exams can be difficult only because of the volume to complete in 50 min. If prepared for adequately the exams are pretty easy
Mr. Scott is an amazing teacher and explains everything very well. He can also be a friend as well as a teacher.
Mr. Scott is a very helpful teacher he give us a personal attention to each one of he's students.
Although I did not mind Mr. Scott as a person, his teaching style was confusing and unhelpful. A majority of the class was compromised of him telling the class unnecessary stories and lame jokes. Every night I needed to reteach myself the lesson using a textbook since his teaching was so awful. His examples in class were not helpful and he did not do a good job reviewing lessons.
His class is honestly pretty fun. People say he plays favorites with XC kids but I wasn't in XC and still got on his good side. Also he does a really cool thing where you write letters to yourself as a senior and then sends them all out and it's really thoughtful of him. Can't ask for much more when he teaches such a remedial subject (algebra 2H) you just need to be open minded and you will definitely enjoy his class.
One of the best courses I've taken at Westlake. It was an easy class, yet I still learned a lot.
Tries to act cool but you barley learn anything. Really irritating most of the time
not very good at explaining the lessons
I had him for track and cross country and he's so nice. He's always so happy and sometimes runs with us on the track. He is filled with info and hardly ever takes off his sunglasses. He's always got on his sunglasses!!! It's like if you have a wedding ring and it gets stuck on your finger and then from that point you're just like " alright I'll just leave it on everyday!" Mr. Scott is really nice and Mrs. Snyder is always trying to set him up with a lady lol so cute. Anyways what a nice man!!!
EVIL. You know how teachers are supposed say "Ask as many questions as you want. It's the key to learning yada yada"? NO. Not with Scott. He does not like answering questions. He is short tempered, and often rude. He is scathingly sarcastic, and demeaning. But he reallllly knows his stuff. Overall a reallly good teacher, but as a person, idk. If you listen to him, you'll do fine in his class. Especially those of you who are his favorites.
Mr. Scott does his job, but he lacks the ability to be an inspirational teacher. He is also occasionally cynical and short-tempered, depending on the day, and creates an uncomfortable atmosphere to ask questions. He plays heavy favorites, and will allow outrageous exceptions for his select students. I did well in his class, but did not enjoy it at all.
Mr. Scott knows his stuff and is a great teacher. H e teaches hard classes, so students like t whine, but he is doing an awesome job.
Doesn't not explain concepts well. One student asked if he could recommend a tutor and he told her she shouldn't be in the honor math class. She wouldn't need a tutor if he explained concepts.
Favors track kids. Talks about track/cc a lot. Sarcastic and angry at times. Does teach math with some success.
As a student who has never had him through an academic class (I know him through Track) I can say that he definitely favors students heavily. Next to that, he has a serious attitude problem. If you have him as a teacher be aware that at times he can be nice and cutesy, maybe making brownies sometime
He doesnt explain things and even when you ask questions, he makes you seem stupid. I don't understand half the things he teaches
As a student who was NOT in cross-country/track, he didn't like me nearly as much as some of his other students, but he's still a decent teacher- and let's face it, few math teachers are!
greatest teacher ever. you need him as your math teacher
true he can get grumpy and whatnot but thats because students undermine his authority sometimes and he hates it. he is the ONLY teacher at westlake i was able to understand algebra with.. had received C, D, F's before.. got A's both semesters with him... an amazing teacher
He's a fantastic teacher. Although he can get a bit grumpy, his teaching ability and humor more than make up for it.
He explained the material decently and I learned algebra II much better than Prezzano's students but he is condescending.
He's kinda condescending. And it's terrifying when he's grading the tests. He's verbal about what the person did wrong.
This has been a great learning experience, would be even better if I attempted to do homework.
Great teacher! Funny guy, especially when he's in a good mood. Not as many great stories as Mr. Hronek, but he brings to mind a much younger Mr. Hronek who plays lots of video games. A nerd and proud. All nerds should have him. Of course, the man's also bloody brilliant.
