Great teacher!! It's definitely hard to adjust to his teaching style but once you do it gets easier. Get up early to start on homework (usually posted on galileoweb or schooloop) so that when you get home you can finish the rest of the notes. Do corrections, participate, and compliment him (mostly this). You need to stay organized and on top of your assignments or you'll fall behind and never recover. Oh and he loves cheetos and coke so if you ever need some more points give him a lot.

He was just an exceptional teacher. Makes sure you actually use your brain by mixing the tests up with article questions if you're in honors. If your class participates it would make your experience even better since he brings up hilarious/interesting topics. The opportunity to be able to correct assignments to get full points is a big +. He sacrifices his lunchtime to help students with things they don't get, so you should definitely take this chance to understand the topic. He Is the G.O.A.T.!

There will be times when you dont get the materials, just ask Grimm he will be more than happy to teach you until you get it. Test reviews take forever to do, but if you can do the test review the test shpuld be no problem. GRIMM IS DA BEST!

Get your 3 inch binder ready and a 6 pack of coke. His test reviews are good study guides except that you have to spent hours doing it. Excessive homework but prepares you for tests, if the doesn't sous like the class for you transfer out.

He is the best teacher you'll ever have, his tests are straight forward, he gives extremely helpful review homework right before the test that basically gives you what is going to be on the test, and his homework is so much that even if you mess up on his tests, there is still a possibility for an A. He is extremely helpful and I highly recommend him. His teaching method and his cornell notes homrwork helped me prepare for AP chemistry, and I'm doing quite well because of it.

Grimm's class will be, and is, hard due to the amount of paperwork given out. His teaching methods are not helpful; assigning articles we won't remember or need and taking too long on do nows. No understanding of our limits/timeframe, messy handwriting. Despite giving chances for correcting work, good luck finding the time and will to do them w/o spending your lunch everyday in his class. Even more difficult to balance with other classes. He's a good man but his class is not worth the effort.

He can not teach well, does not understand students. Grimm throws work at you and expects you to know it. He is not well at explaining, and everything must go his way. If you're put in Grimm's class, you're basically on your own.

I admit, you don't appreciate Grimm until you finish his class. His class is pretty challenging even as a regular class. I think his class should be considered honors regardless. His teaching style and material suits a honors class and I don't think it's fair for regular level students to be placed in this class only because you have to put a lot of effort to keep your grade up in this class compared to other chemistry classes like Debella. You will learn form this class if you are determined to

this is the worst teacher I've ever known. He basically just spend half of his class time to write down questions on board and ask students to find out answers on their own. His presentation is hard to follow and seems like he just wants to come to classroom to write everything on the board, and that completes his part of the job.

From what I heard, Grimmy was a hard teacher, but students that come out of his class are always more prepared for science-oriented subjects, so yeah, it's good. I heard his labs are very hard and they must be very detailed.
