I had him as a Capstone teacher, not AP Gov. He has been amazing! He is so willing to let you look at any of his books or just talk. He brings a really unique perspective to the class because he worked on the hill, and he gives great feedback. If you get him as a teacher, be thankful!

Mr. Waxman is a great teacher. He is very smart in what he is teaching and wants everyone in the class to suceed. He's moving away from my school and I will miss him so much next year. He is very helpful and creates very strategic application problems for homeworks and finals. So glad I had him as a teacher next year and it is such a bummer the students next year won't have him.

Without a doubt the best teacher Oakton has ever seen, and I have ever had. Such a shame he's gone now, wherever he's teaching the kids there are very lucky.
