Mr. Belmont is the definition of an awesome teacher. His classes were never boring. His only flaw is that he's kind of laid back. He'd get distracted and sometimes I'd walk into class and he'd put on Bollywood movies. But nonetheless I was never unprepared and his tests truly did test our knowledge. What I loved most about Mr Belmont was that he really cared about his students. He always gave us valuable life advice. I'm very fortunate to have had him.

In the first month of class, we've already seen videos of 1) some guy dancing on a treadmill to Uptown Funk; 2) Let It Go; 3) the opening of Pee-Wee Herman; 4) footage of an old Columbus Day parade and him getting arrested by the Secret Service.
Also he doesn't even really check what you write on your homework. I had a friend who showed him the same homework for a whole month and he still had a 100.
Best teacher ever.

If you already study by yourself and don't need a teacher to teach you, consider this a break from Tech where you enjoy him getting off task and not teaching but rather being a stand up comedian. Chooses favorites and good bless you if he hates you. Inability to learn from the class as his notes are rather sloppy and he gets off task. His tests are made to trick you, which I didn't enjoy. Most of the time he doesn't check homework and if he does he barely cares unless he hates you, so good luck

Amazing teacher. Mr. Belmont teaches history in an incredible interactive manner and transforms the boring classroom into the steppes of Asia (for example) in a few words. His tests do require some thinking but can be very easy for the well prepared. He doesn't overload with homework, but gives just enough to give the students a thorough review. If you have him though, don't EVER be late for his class! (And up where I rated we use our textbook every day, don't worry we don't carry them around.)

This was the worst teacher I've had in my entire Highschool experience. He targeted me all year and occasionally only checked my hw when trusting that everyone else did theirs. Too say he chooses favorites would be an understatement. He didn't prepare anyone for the AP at all and what he considers a captivating history lesson is stopping every few moments to discuss Camran Diaz or Indian Soap Operas.

Poor AP teacher. Mr.Belmont's class was, simply put, not on par with AP standards, and thus could not even be viewed under such a light.There was no semblance of retrospective analysis in that class, and if there was one, it was maintained with such inconsistency as to be wholly negligible. Spends rather little time on the essays, leaving students who have trouble writing them in class behind, and with little time to improve their capabilities, however poor. (Etc.)

Mr.Belmont was not a good AP teacher, despite all good intentions. His class is rather, and painfully, organized, as there is no systematic approach to understanding history, or trying to reconcile varying viewpoints, themes, and so forth, as expected of the AP curriculum. He doesn't present much information, save for a rough chronology of events, nor has an adequate textbook as a backdrop that would have facilitated said systematic approach, and all too often relies on it for test material, etc

It's unfortunate that the rating categories don't reflect on efficiency, which is a major weakness in Mr. Belmont's AP (WH) courses...The courses don't reflect the necessary difficulty, not do they seem to elevate or assume any helm of complexity in presenting a world-view of history...Classes are too loose, and flexible, without any true weight or pressure that may prove to be a catalyst for achievement; there's little except for the student to do, and that is more than what is covered...

Mr. Belmont, a teacher who was easy and quite helpful but never too helpful in the end.
These ratings only show the easiness but never the fact that Mr. Belmont's divisions or views of history were flawed, nor did they reflect the mindset of the AP class-the thinking skills and need to reflect in general themes. Classes are based on chronologies, which are poor ways of thinking of history, as well as diversions from the lesson and bits and pieces of history and information...

Mr. Belmont is indeed a very knowledgable teacher; ask him anything history related and he'll give you a full on explanation. If you're bad at history, like I am, he honestly doesn't explain the material well; he just gives you a bunch of notes. Get 90 on his tests, do all your homework and projects, you'll get a good grade. He's easy-going and fun, just don't get on his nerves. He also likes Bollywood movies A LOT, so, yeah ^^ cool teacher. =]
