Somo is a nice person, but a poor teacher. He often makes mistakes, or fails to explain the problems he is working out. His grading is more lenient than the other calc teachers, but the lack of understanding does not make up for it.

Has very entertaining stories. Makes fun of his students a lot. He's funny and really good at math, just not so much at teaching. Way easier than Mrs. Wade, but you don't learn as much.

If you want a laugh or a nap, take Somo. If you want to learn Calculus, hang on to Mrs. Wade for dear life.

Great Algebra 3-4 teacher. I have a 107% in his class. He makes homework extra credit! Teaches in a way that is easy to follow and comprehend.

He just can't make me understand math as well as other teachers, but he is a great guy. He would be a really good guidance counselor, he knows a lot about life

One of the funniest teachers i've ever met, he is cool enough to let kids do whatever the heck they want as long as they are done. He is a great guy too.

Somo's greatness comes not in his ability to teach calculus, but in what kind of person he is. Very kind man, and always willing to give advice for the future.
