He goes over homework for way too long, and it's because of this that he has to rush when teaching a new lesson. He also goes way too fast when teaching the lessons because of the shortened time, so it's hard to write everything he wants the students to know. My notes are almost always unfinished because of it. He grades tests way too strictly and always wants something done in one way only. Simply put, he's the worst teacher I've ever had.

Spend most of the class time confusing teaching material, teach very little and not good at all but expects a lot in tests. Do not take him, he ruined my experience with Algebra 2.

Does not teach well at all, he will spend an entire 75 minute period going over homework and still not answer all of the 10 or so questions, his tests are extensively hard and he grades it terribly taking out points for extremely ridiculous things.

I took Lindsay's Algebra 2 regular before I took my Algebra 2 honors, I got a higher grade in Algebra 2 honors. Lindsay's class is hard, because he doesn't care about do u actually know things or not, all he cares about is FORMAT! For example, 2x=4, you can't just write x=2 as ur second step, you have to write 2x/2=4/2 first, otherwise he's gonna mark u wrong!!! Try to avoid him.

He knows what he's done. Do your work. Ask questions. Listen to him. Thats all really. He's pretty funny and makes math way better. He knows when to joke and when not too. He is also willing to go the extra mile for you when it comes to helping. Great teacher.

I graduated WHS more than 6 years ago, and I want to write this review in HOPES that someone there will read this and give this to him. He ruined my hopes of higher education right after high school JUST by one math class. Being so negative, and condescending and telling me "you will never amount to anything". Well sir, I have amounted to something, and I will never EVER treat any human being like you treated your students then, and probably now. I have a few degrees now, and proud of myself. So skrew you.

He grades every single thing on your homework, so if you're leaving things out or skipping questions, it's really easy to get half credit on all your homework and leave the class with a C

This is not a teacher you want if you are a slacker or a sleeper. If you take notes and do you homework correctly understanding the material shouldn't be that hard. runs out of time a lot.

The guy teaches well and all that, but when it comes to grading he grades so hard, that he'll make a A test into a C test. Students Beware not to forget to right all your headings on your homeowrk

Good teacher when he teaches. He reviews homework for so long that there is no time for the lecture for that day's lesson. Take the homework seriously and don't cheat-- he checks every problem you do.

He spends a lot of time going over the homework, but it's a good thing I suppose. He does rush the lectures because of the homework. He's boring and he's not funny.
