Ok, honestly people who complain about him just need to get over themselves. He is a good teacher, his tests are basically his notes, he ALWAYS offers help after class or at lunch, asks if anyone has any questions, explains the subject properly. Yes, his lectures can be boring and extra most of the times, and he is a pretty weird dude, but who cares? You're not perfect either. If you just do your work and ask for help if you need any, there is no way you'll get a bad grade.

Mr. Smith is a kind teacher but unfortunately is extremely boring. I would fall asleep in class almost everyday. His voice is monotone and doesn't teach well. His a nice man but a boring teacher.

Okay, mr. Smith is a good teacher. Before the school year started, a lot of my teammates told me good and bad things about his class and it made me fear for the grade I might end up with when the school year ends. Well, some people are liars because they didn't do so good in his class. They slept and did other homework rather than listening to his lectures. Just open your eyes and ears and shut your mouths. My advice to you to do great in his class. Mr. Smith helped me a lot and he was great!

he just comes to school to get paid and leave, i don't learn anything from him, not a very good explainer. he didn't explain in a way for students to understand. i think he's the only one who understands what he says other than students

I did not like him at first. He's not a very good teacher, but he gets the job done. He's very nice, funny, but weird. He knows enough about chemistry, but doesn't know how to explain very well.

He's a great guy, really. Funny, easy to talk to and to interact with. He gets the job done with an acceptable, average teaching. Doesn't have immense knowledge of chemistry, but enough to keep the class moving. Needs to learn to control his class.

One of the best chemistry teachers I've ever had! He teaches with a causal style but is very precise and gives great tools to remember and learn things so it sticks. Used his techniques in college!

So far, i think he's a pretty good teacher. The good thing is that he gets to the point, and doesnt try to really add a lot of crazy stuff to what he talks about. Overall, he's okay.
