06/10/14 - At the start of the year, I was intimidated by him. But during the year I asked him for advice, and he was very helpful. When I really needed support at the end of the year, he gave it to me. One of the best teachers at LAHS, a genuinely good person. Show More Show Less

03/10/14 - I am so glad that I decided to take chemistry h. When I first started I was barely passing but when I asked Mr. Seran for help, he was so quick to help and was so kind. With his help I was able to raise my grade to an A- at one point. He's AMAZING! Show More Show Less

01/29/14 - Mr. Seran is one of the most caring, kind-hearted teachers I have ever met. He genuinly cares about his students and their well-beings and preformance in his class. Though the material he teaches is not always easy, he provides enough guidance and instruction to succeed. There is no doubt that he is well versed with the material he teaches and will provide any extra help to those that are stuggling if asked. He is truly a one of a kind teacher, and I mean that in the best way possible. Show More Show Less

01/22/14 - I am privileged to have been taught by Mr. Seran for both Chem H and Chem AP. Mr. Seran exemplifies the qualities of an excellent teacher, and he brings forth a positive attitude each and everyday. It's not only the material he teaches well, but also life skills. For example, if a student ever does poorly on an exam, Mr. Seran will give them valuable advice on how they can respond with better test preparation. This, along with other essential tips, are skills that students can use beyond school. Show More Show Less

01/18/14 - I am currently in AP Chemistry and I managed to pull out an A, but it was not easy. Chemistry is a hard and new topic to most and Mr. Seran recognizes that and is therefore very considerate towards his students and respects what they have to say. He is one of the fairest teachers I've ever had and never doubts a students learning capability, which is what encourages them to be successful in that class. I highly recommend chemistry honors and AP as it is one of my favorite classes. Show More Show Less

01/18/14 - Mr. Seran is a fair teacher. If you spend an hour each day on Chemistry just like he asks you to, you will get a good grade in his class. He's very knowledgeable, so don't feel scared to ask him a question. Show More Show Less

05/22/13 - sexist favoring girls. impossibly lazy, taking week(s) to grade a SCANTRON and pulls his test questions from a "database". His lectures, which don't occur too often, are nearly verbatim to the book. Too lazy to help students during lunch, preferring to run off somewhere and lock his door (unlike 80% of teachers at LAHS). His curriculum will screw you over for SAT II and/or AP Chem unless you self study. Show More Show Less

04/17/13 - Mr. Seran is a great teacher. At first when I decided to take Chemistry Honors, I was very hesitant because of what the students at ratemyteacher were saying. The comment that scared me the most was "He makes kids say their grades out loud, even if you got a bad one, and publicly ridicules anyone who gets a bad grade." This is completely untrue. Mr. Seran makes students read out the grades for homework assignments, which you can still get 100% on even if you got all the answers wrong. He's fair. Show More Show Less
