I've had Quinonez for both Algebra and Judo. Like everyone else says, he's an amazing Judo teacher, and not-so-amazing for Algebra. If you get in his class for Algebra, just stick with it and do your homework. Learn from the textbook if he isn't clear enough, and USE SET SIGNS ON THE TESTS/QUIZZES. However, Quinonez is one of the best Judo senseis you're gonna find. He explains each move and really tries to help you understand.
TL;DR Judo 10/10 Algebra 1/10

I am sure Mr. Quinonez is a great judo teacher but he is not good at teaching math. Literally on the fourth day of school, my class was already behind because on the day before he tried to explain a problem from last night's hw and he talked for an entire period and made us more confused. Then like 10 seconds before the bell rang he was like read and take notes on this chapter and do every third problem to 60... If I am going to teach myself then why are you here?

Mr. Quinonez is one hell of a great JUDO teacher. He does well at breaking down the steps of each throw that he teaches, and goes through them slowly so you understand. But of you have him for math, drop out quickly

I have him for Adv Alg 2 and I'm not trying to be mean but he genuinely should not be a teacher. He is very unclear and unfair when doing anything and everything. I don't like how he doesn't return tests.

most of the reviews rate him as a math teacher. however his forte is teaching judo. i have taken both of those classes under him. in his math class, students often learn how to learn themselves. as long you do your hw and study for tests. as for judo, he is probably one of the best judo senseis in the bay area. extremely over qualified and he pours his heart into the class. Notice how the site categorizes him under Physical edu. so for all the haters, back off and learn to read.

THis man does not have any idea how to teach. We spend literally the whole entire period going over last night's hw (which nobody understood) he wastes the whole 90 minutes doing every single problem on the board and scrambling all the problems to one huge jumbled mess. Then doesnt do notes. Literally the entire class fales every single one of his tests. One periods average right now is 60%for our last quiz. Thinks that he is an amazing teacher and that he is helping us, but isn't. "You get me?"

he is pretty nice , but his grading system doesn't make sense at all!!! it gets really frustrating. sometimes he grades tests on a curve based on the whole math departement, not just his classes. i mean, does that make sense? NO!!

He needs to go home. and never come back. He'll be going over the homework, and then all of a sudden he'll decide that he will attempt to describe how we use that math in "real" life which results in him going on and on about different chemisty formulas, properties, etc. OR he'll go on and on about mother functions. When he does this, NO ONE IN THE ROOM understands what he says. its awful. when the entire class fails the test, and this is almost everytime, in an advanced class, he IGNORES IT and blames us.

Quinonez, being a student of Professor Jay, teaches us stuff where you'd probably wont get anywhere else. One of the best judo teachers. As a math teacher, hes still learning (2nd year) but hes better

One must have a great deal of respect for a man who can teach Judo/Small Circle Jujitsu to high school students! Sensei Quinonez is one of the most understanding teachers that I have ever met.
