He's a terrible teacher. I've had him, and he marked my paper incorrectly on accident, and never changed my grade to what I actually got. Also, when he grades a test, he never gives them back. His only reponse as to how we'd know what we did wrong is "you should know what you did wrong"

He isn't the best teacher ever but, if you get the stuff then you should do all right. Everything we do in that class is worksheets and if its close to grading period he really pushes you. If you are hoping to learn from the teacher you're not going to get that, you have to self teach yourself.

Mr Boivin requires you to learn the material. If you are attentive and if you do your homework you can get a good grade and you can learn a lot

Boivin isn't a very good teacher. He's boring and we r bascically self teaching ourselves. He gives us the review guide every week and we learn from that. He has lectures on that Chapter, but who knows what he's saying?

He didn't teach me anything. You read for homework, and for lessons, he reads your homework to you. He accuses everyone of cheating because we get the right answer. He recycles your notes you NEED.

He is easy but super boring and not helpful at all with the questions or lectures. You are better off studying on your own rather than listen to anythig he says.

His class is somewhat hard, its easy if you do the reading and remember it, be prepared for tests because your grades are based on the i suggest to study the night before each test and do your packets, he doesn't help much so you kind of have to teach yourself

Your grade is based on your test. He can be okay at times. Just do your work.
