Freed is the best teacher at Westlake, hands down. He is amazing, both as a person and as a teacher. Doesn't bother with busy work, and genuinely cares about his students. He is very approachable, and will work one on one with you until you understand the concept. Great moves Freed, keep it up, proud of you!
Freed is a character. I think he's a great person, he's pretty hilarious, but I have a problem with his teaching. He picks favorites and only helps them with their questions. Also, my biggest issue is that the class is too fast. You can't teach Micro and Macro in one semester. In other schools they teach micro over an entire year, so this was pretty rough. It was too fast paced and almost impossible to grasp all the information. I think that needs to be altered upon.
Mr. Freed is amazing!! He is an awesome teacher and is super knowledgeable. He always knows how to put a smile on his students faces and is always willing to help when someone is in need. As long as you stay on top of your reading, you'll do well in his class.... He is also super attractive. All in all, great teacher and great to look at
Absolutely fantastic. Knows almost everything, is great at explaining things and making even the driest parts of history interesting and will work with you if you're struggling. Understands that you've got other classes and a life and rarely gives homework. Awesome teacher
Overrated. While he makes his class somewhat more interesting through real-world examples, he knows very well the answers to all his government tests are online and thus encourages cheating by doing nothing to stop it. So those that put in the effort by reading every night and studying for the AP don't get acknowledged. Further, I don't see how Freed's humor is that strong. His offensive jokes don't make me laugh, they just make me uncomfortable. With that said, Freed is MUCH better than Lynch.
Of all teachers, he is the most realistic in terms of expectations for his students. He doesn't just acknowledge the fact that we're drowning in college apps and AP coursework; he lightens the load by avoiding tedious assignments and work, yet does so tactfully. Aside from academics, he is the teacher I would turn to if I needed to. He is very approachable, affable, and relatable, characteristics only an outstanding teacher possesses. Lastly, he is the most knowledgable man I know.
Mr. Freed is a legend. Fun class with an amazing teacher. Freed is awesome, entertaining, cool, and super knowledgable. He makes history so fun and I love the way he runs his class. One of the greatest people you will ever meet.
Damn. Mr Freed is the best. I love this man. Damn. Hes a great guy. Go Mr. Freed.
Probably one of the most entertaining teachers I've ever had. I sincerely miss his class and all of the greatness from the stories to the history anecdotes. Keep it up Freed.
If youre looking for someone who will jump in front of a bullet for you in the trench or join you in a gang fight in some alley Mr. Freed is that guy. He's that guy who can probably dunk a basketball with just his willpower, bench 315, and climb mount everest blindfolded with a 50 pound weight on each of his ankles. Do you like learning? Do you like cool guys? Do you like entertainment? Then Doug is the man for you. He cares about people and is just a mans man. Best of all time. Keep it up Freed
five outta five - the greatest of all time
Extremely funny guy. Read the textbook or your grade is done. Plays favorites sometimes
Douglas is the man. Ask him to tell you the glory days of him at Isla Vista with Pirate
There need to be more like him.
Mr. Freed is one of the best teachers I've had, he's very friendly, approachable, explains things well and really knows his stuff. He makes sure his class is never boring and it really prepares you for the AP test. In other words, he's just amazing
One of my favorite teachers of all time. He was hilarious, helpful, and very kind. He would even help students find great places to eat after school! Amazing guy!
Simply the best.
Freed is talented, and a genuinely nice guy. Econ tests got pretty rough, but now that I'm taking micro in college his notes are getting me through it.
He is cool tho!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best history teacher ever
Absolutely the man! He makes sure that you understand the material instead of making sure you do all your homework and petty crap like that. Nicest dude
I luv m frreed he iz reaal colland i he teached me fun. yay. he is coolz.
Doug is the best and not to mention HOT! He is so helpful and let me say again..HOTTIE. Best teacher at Westlake and in my heart
Mr. Freed is simply a legend. 99.9999% of his lessons are hilarious and VERY informational. I have learned more in his class in just the first quarter than I have learned in entire school years! His class operates very similar to a college class, which some people mistake as a disadvantage, when really he is preparing everyone for college. Like I said before, Mr. Freed is a legend and one of the best teachers on the planet.
The greatest teacher and man I have ever known. Mr. Freed genuinely cares for all his students and does everything in his power to help them be successful. As a person, his personality is pure perfection and I only wish I could have his knowledge and funny experiences under my belt. He is the most perfect person I have ever met and I only wish I could have him forever. All of your students adore you Mr Freed..
He's full of himself, but he has a right to be. He's Doug freakin' Freed. Hilarious teacher, great class, consistent curriculum.
By far the best teacher ever! He makes you want to learn with his humorous way of teaching and I was excited to go to class every single day! Unlike most other teachers, he genuinely cares about each of his students and does everything in his power to help them. Hopefully he stays for a long time!
The Freed is one of the greatest men i have ever met. If you have him you will have a great time. Lucky you
Mr. Freed is an extremely knowledgeable and lax teacher (allows free cell phone use in class and after tests). He tells some entertaining lessons and will probably become the best teacher in your sophomore year.
There are good teachers, and there are great teachers. Mr Freed is a great. He has a vast collection of historical knowledge and a strong understanding about how the world works. He delivers lessons clearly and always makes them memorable. His class might be extremely easy to some, but this is only
Seriously, AP Euro is a joke. It's like the easiest class I've ever taken... in my life... People who say it's hard have no grasp on reality. He doesn't prepare you for the AP test because you dont have to study and you can still get 100% on his tests, so you're not motivated to prepare at all funny
It's an easy class if you know what you're doing and study the book like no tomorrow. He's kind of got a hint of elitism in his voice and you can tell that he's an arrogant person, but overall he's got good intentions and is very funny.
Difficult to even get a B, but he's pretty chill. Was I prepared for the AP? No, but he I couldn't have asked for a funnier teacher. Best memories are from his class no doubt.
Mr. Freed is just simply an amazing person. His velvet tuxedos at school and his weird ties and sunglasses. Just awesome.
By far the best teacher I've had. He honestly makes the lessons interesting and engaging, he understands the students better than most teachers, Im really unhappy to not be in his class anymore.
The year my son was in Mr. Freed's class stands out as exceptional; he literally changed the way our kid thinks about learning - which had been dull
Mr. Freed makes teacher interesting :]. Being in his AP class, you'll seriously never be bored. He teaches well and maintains connection with students. Just about the best teacher at Westlake!
Absolutely brilliant man. He has a talent for teaching; never have I understood in such clarity so many complicated historical events. My only complaint is that he is less than perfect when it comes to pronouncing foreign names and words.
Greatest teacher at Westlake, by far. Probably my favorite class this year, and me loving history is just a plus for being in his class.
Mr freed is a super cool teacher who i was able to relate with. His AP Euro class is challenging but rewarding if you do the work.
