One of the best teachers in tech! Really cares about his students and wants to make sure their voices are heard. He is like the Grandpa of LAS! Tests and quizzes are difficult but he does cover all the information in class. For both AP US Govt and Comparative Govt and Politics I got a 5 and thats purely because he is a great teacher who really knows what he is talking about. If you participate in class and do your homework you will get a good grade (Just be aware of pop quizzes!)

He's a nice teacher but his testing policy can be really unfair sometimes. Like someone before me said, he makes 5 question quizzes worth the same as 30 question tests. Just do your homework and study and you'll be fine.

Definitely nice hwoever there are several things that i dont quite like. he puts a 5 question pop quiz equivalent to a 30 question test with 5 response quesions his exams/ quizzes are based on useless detail like whats the percent of oil in cali.

Mr. Dywer is very sweet, there's no doubt about that. But hes Extremely biased and extremely childish. (he got mad that someone stole his milk---hilarious but extremely unprofessional.) His tests are nothing like the AP because they are mostly focused on very stupid details.His class is boring too. I felt like i could have done so much better if i had another teacher.

Mr.Dywer is the sweetest old man who can talk for hours, which i find the cutest thing. But, as cute as he is, he isnt a great teacher. I love him, but he acts very childish at times, knocking off grades based on his own biases. And his tests, are so hard to study for because you either have to read the whole chapter again, or just review the ethel woods book. both very tedious. Just talk about sports with him, and he'll like you.

He's the man you need to help you get a good grade on the AP. In addition, he's a nice guy, doesn't get mean unless you do something stupid, and grades fairly easy. Just do his 5-15min hws, and study for his tests...

I love his corniness lol; it's such a great part of him. "Quien sabes?" He goes strictly by the AP book, which is good so that you get prepared but he doesn't have a specialization so it'll be general

Had him twice. He's a really nice teacher. Very caring. I missed class a lot. He was very understanding about me not feeling well and even told me a good way to make tea so I could get better faster. Gives a lot of notes and is there to help you out. I wish I hadn't taken advantage of his niceness and had paid more attention in class.

Really nice guy. Projects and notes were always helpful. If i had wanted to study i would have gotten at least a 95. i did fall asleep a few times in his class, maybe it was because i had gym before his class. overall one of the best global teachers i ever had! ^_^

He seems to be very well versed in history; when he opens his mouth, you can tell. His notes are also very clear. Finally, though he gives pop quizzes, if you read the material, you usually get between an 80 and 100 on them. He's prety good.
