He was literally the hardest teacher I ever had... Was really smart but never seemed to want to share his knowledge with his students...

Best teacher I've ever had. He can lecture for 90 minutes straight without it being overwhelming or boring. He's really smart and knows stuff about more than just Physics. He's hilarious. His knowledge of Physics is immense. He's the most fun TOK teacher as well - he knows how to have a discussion and teach us the material without controlling the class and stifling the discussion. He doesn't assign homework in TOK, yet I learned far more from him than I did from Wolf. Central is losing a valuable te

As you can see, no one has any problems with Mr. Lyons. He is a very efficient teacher, teaches what you need to know very well, and makes it very clear when he is teaching something you do NOT need to know. His physics puns are shockingly funny too ;)

he's a physics teacher, of course his class is going to be hard. nevertheless i love mr lyons's corny jokes and he's pretty go-with-the-flow if you will and at least he stays on topic.. he has this unexplainable personality, he's very calm and clear. i cant see him ever yelling and when he's upset he just blinks and explains his point. super respectful teacher!

the best teacher i have had in my entire life, and probably one of the smartest people. Is very fair when it comes to homework, and grades tests fairly. It doesnt seem like he has even the smallest amount of bias. Great teacher.
