The sweetest most amazing teacher here. If Mr. Mathews taught every class at ML, I would come every day. He's so different from other teachers in the aspect that he always believes in people and expects the best from them rather than always expecting students to misbehave or do bad in school. he does his best to make sure his students are not stressed!

quite possibly the sweetest and kindest person I've ever had the pleasure to meet. Definitely recommend this class to anyone who is willing to think a little deeper than your average class. Don't just shy away because you think it's only for the "IB" kids. Definitely worth having him as a teacher

The best teacher you will ever have, hands down. He is the most knowledgeable teacher there and you will love him no matter what. He makes you want to be at school. Had him for IB Econ and TOK

One of the nicest teachers I had in high school. Very knowledgeable, if he actually had to teach a specific subject he would be ridiculously distracted but because he teaches TOK its perfect! Also, doesn't teach TOK out of the book unlike other teachers- much better learning experience as a result.

One of the best teachers I've ever had. He tells lots of storys and can't go in direct sunlight from 10AM-4PM. What could be better?

i always thought i had the potential to get along with him - but somehow he perferred a select few in class - and not so much the rest of us

Dismissive to anyone who doesn't share his views. TOK was a shallow attempt at a deep exploration of knowledge. Material was approached simplemindedly.

He doesn't care about you unless you're in the top 5% of the class. Close-minded, he makes TOK a class where students cannot discuss their opinions freely.

HE ROCKS! i've never had a teacher as mean, but at the same time, as funny as him. He also is probably the easiest history teacher i've ever had.

He is interesting to listen to, but needs to chill out on the joking/serious thing. Hes hard to read sometimes, and tends to humiliate students who joke.

From a student that didn't get on his good side from the start, I found his class difficult. Never sure what he wanted. Sarcastic, too opinionated, but friendly

I liked that he didn't let you get away with an easy answer in discussions. He might ask why you said that or ask another question to get you thinking more.
