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.
He did not prepare me whatsoever so the AP exam in Global. We watched countless dumb videos, kinda obsessed with lobsters. More my friend than my teacher.
I'M SO SAD THAT THEY'RE MAKING US ALL CHANGE OUR GLOBAL TEACHERS THIS GUY IS AWESOME IF YOU GET HIM YOU'RE BLESSED HIS TESTS ARE EASY IF YOU STUDY THE TEXTBOOK AND JUST OVERALL HE'S GREAT I'LL MISS HIS CLASS SO MUCH
There are no words to describe how good he is.
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.
Best teacher 10/10 if you have him you should buy a lottery ticket. He is a great teacher.
He's a pretty good teacher. You have to study off the textbooks in order to be prepared for the class, but it is really easy and fun!
I actually look forward to his classses everyday
If you get Mr. Belmont, you should go buy a lottery ticket. That's how lucky you are.
I hate this class...u have to learn everything on your own and agree he definitely weird
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
Mr Belmont is very weird and get mostly of task.
lazy teacher and if he doesn'tlike you forget your grade..
Just plain not anice teacher - you can transfer if you feel uncomfortable - just alert guidance.
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.
He knows what he teaches but he hated me this year. It made my experience in his class poor. He knows what he teaches but gets off topic and often is very goofy. I hated him.
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...
Well, all I can say is that Mr. Belmont was a fairly capable instructor though his methods require further study.
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...
Not suited for an AP class; too easy and fails to explore the set of historical concepts. Very disorganized in efforts despite good intentions to help students pass.
I love Mr. Belmont. He made me enjoy my freshman year. He is such a great teacher! I miss him. If you get him be extremely happy because you'll have a great and enjoyable year ahead of you. He also likes South Asian culture a lot. He is obsessed with Cameron Diaz and lobster. You have fun and learn a lot in his class.
Mr. Belmont was amazing last year. He was funny and an all around cool teacher. He gave a lot of notes but they paid off when we had to take tests.
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. =]
GREAT GUY, CLASS IS SO EASY IT SEEMS LIKE A JOKE, BUT YOU END UP LEARNING ALOT
Consider yourself lucky if you ever get mr belmont for a teacher. He is extremely knowledgable and I felt liek the world was openign up for me when I ahd him in freshman year. He's also easy to get along with and helpful.
Funny teacher; captivating at times; doesnt check hw lol
awesome awesome teacher - he reallly helps out (and love the gateway kids), hes mad funny too
LOL he's obsessed with Cameron Diaz and lobsters. hes cool tho. Mr. Belmont FTW !
mad cool teacher. called me gangsta for throwing a pen and not doing hw. never did hw, just showed him science notes, dont mind belmont. mad funny jokes. hope i have him in 10th.
mr. belmont is a really good teacher confident i will do well on the standerdized exams
i love Mr belmont. i had him for two years and i scored nice on the ap exam. he is much better than the other teachers. anybody who gets him is super lucky. just read the textbook and you'll be fine.
key for tests: read the textbook! his notes cover nothing. but mr.belly is so funny :D:D:D:D you better know your stuff if he calls on you though. haha he hates numbers
I LOVE HIM. the best global teacher EVER. he is VERY nice and very funny. I wish i had him again. His tests were okay. i had to read the book a lot of times and the notes.
I LOVED Mr. Belmont. BEST teacher ever. He gives awesome notes and as long as you read the textbook, the tests will be really easy. Just raise your hand every now&then (85 average and I got put in AP)
belmont is so awesome! he never really checks hw, just glances at it, but i still did it, and that really helped on tests- his tests are pretty hard, but if you study you'll do fine. great class =)
You learn from the textbooks and his notes are okaii--. All he does is glance at the homeworks and no matter how hard you work on the projects, the grades would still be high.
He is a fine teacher but you barely learn anything in his class. his tests are based in the textbook and his notes are not that useful. IF you read the txtbk, and study hard, you can pass easily.
no good notes from class. barely did the hw since he never checks it. barely learned anything but he makes class fun. get a review book instead of learning from this guy for ap world
He is a great teacher. His classes are interesting, and he had a lot of control over the class. He is funny, and sometimes goes onto wierd topics, but we learn a lot.
My favorite teacher at Tech by far, next to Mrs. Solomon. He makes his classes interesting, and has an awesome personality. He talked about his love for lobster a lot.
He was an amazing teacher! I loved all his conversations about food and how his favorite movies were all weird, old alien movies. His class was fun and I learned a lot!
XD! Mr Belmont is so cool! I love his teching methods. I really enjoy his class too. Out of five, I'd give him 5.5
awsome teacher. so awsome, he looks like burt reynolds
Awesome teacher. I had him for freshman year, and I not only learned alot from his class, but also had fun learning it, too. His homework was fair, as well as his tests and grading policy. One of the best and just a cool guy.
I LOVE MR. BELMONT!!!!!!!!!!!!! he is the greatest teacher i've ever had ever!!!!!!!!
Great teacher excep he left his last three classes and now we have Ms. Lee and she is much harder and very strict. She also is gonna stop the Discussions in the lessons.

Woah~ Dear dear Belemont. The man gave me first term 85 second term 85 and third term 65, he plays favorites. You see it when it comes to the end.
