He knows a lot but he isn't good at relaying the information he does know. He makes physics difficult to understnad and puts little effort into really teaching his students. He believes they should figure it out for themselves. This is an issue when students are new to physics and know very little about it. Not sure about chemistry. He also frequently makes offensive and sexist comments in front of the class, which does not create a great learning environment.
