Had him for AP Chem, best teacher ever. Always doing lab experiments and explosions. If you don't understand something, he is always happy to help students get the material.

Very intelligent, but unloads a bunch of information onto you and doesn't hold your hand. Will help you if you ask him a question one on one. You will need to pay hard attention to score well.

I just cannot believe hes the ap chem teacher. He doesnt teach! He just says things and you dont know if you need to actually learn from that. He wastes too much time talking about movies and games and doesnt want to help students because he prefers to sit on his computer. I learned nothing from him last year so I had to teach myself. Seriously, he does his job for the money not for the students

I think Mr. Iverson is good at teaching but I just wish he gave us more worksheets with AP questions so we can be better prepared for the AP exam. Other than that hes just as good as any other teacher

pretty nice person and is pretty much a walking book of knowledge how ever he does go off topic a lot and talks about subjects that are not in the scope of the matter
still his topics are very inter

He teaches material useful in places other than the test room by teaching not just by the textbook, but his own experience and knowledge. If you don't take notes on important stuff your out of luck.

I took him for chemistry honors...and honestly learned nothing. He kept sidetracking and talking about Star Trek and Star Wars instead. His class was a basic waste of time.

I have to agree with most of these people. Iverson knows his physics, obviously since he has a degree, but he doesn't teach it to his students. He is side tracked really easily, and it is hard to do good in his class if you don't listen to every little detail he says. If you want to take the AP Physics test you would be better off learning it on your own.

he knows what he's talking about, but his students do not know what he's talking about. Usually teachers give assign a lot of hw, he assigns none. If you somehow fail a test in his class, you will be considered lucky to be able to get a B- in his class because he rarely gives out any tests/quizzes. I would never recommend him to any student at all, but it seems like you won't be able to avoid being forced into his class. he is a nice person overall, but his teaching is just not good at all.

Heh, teaching may not be his strong point but he's knowledgable. Maybe you didn't do well because you we're asleep?

baddd teacher. like everyone else says he knows what hes talkin about. no one else will get it. pretty lazy when it comes to classwork, but i guess thats good for the students? extremely hard to get an A, way easier to get a B. also likes to talk about himself a lot..."i was the only teacher in the district with a physics degree" he told us that TWICE

I believe he knows his things, but he is horrible at explaining. I had him for Chemistry Honors and I do my best to listen, but eveything that comes out of his mouth sounds as if it's from a different world.

He knows his subject but not good at teaching it. Hard and doesn't explain much. You walk out of his class as a self learner.

my child had him and she learned nothing. she did not even knoe the basics, just a few formulas but nothing about how they were derived or the logic. they need a new teacher.

He's hard. He expects us to do a lot of independent study since he doesn't assign much homework.

Although his class can be very demanding he is an amusing teacher. I really wish he gave more assignments to bounce off some bad test grades though.

his lessons are so confusing and he rambles a lot about things that has nothing to do with science. Should learn to be more clear and organized.

Iverson just rambles about BS all the time instead of teaching, so you don't know anything before quizzes. He watches movies instead of reviewing before tests

Hilarious. However, that gets in the way of the actual lesson. He also gets sidetracked easily (spent a whole day this week talking about the JFK conspiracy)

Mr. Iverson is a nice open minded guy. He plays games and lets you play games in his class. He knows what hes talking about and is a good teacher.

Mr. Iverson does a lot of experiments to get the students interested (esp. chem honors - when he taught it). While in class you don't think you're learning much, but at the end of the year you stop and realize just how much you have learned. Good teacher.
