07/10/14 - Although he isn't as organized as you think he is, if you manage to ask for one-on-one help he'll clarify in a very explicit manner. He just dislikes students who always want an A and does not really care about the subject at all. --A student Show More Show Less

05/19/14 - Mr. Shim is as terrible and unclear as a teacher can be...I almost died on the first semester but I survived with a C- in his honors class. He's one of the most horrible teacher I've ever had. So please, take something else instead of chemistry. :) Show More Show Less

10/08/12 - Awful teacher. He does not try to teach his students, he simply goofs off telling kids to "Shut the front door" and tells stories of his life before becoming a teacher. He rights things on the board like equations or charts but does not explain them well enough to fully understand. His tests are very hard, I can only name a handful of students that don't use their Iphones during a test; The only way to study is to read the book. I highly recommend transferring out as soon as you possibly can. Show More Show Less

08/12/12 - Horrible teacher, has given up on the fun aspect of teaching and hates his students and the school. Very stingy on the materials and sometimes yells at his students. He is sometimes humorous but it gets annoying after awhile. One time we had an assignment and only 1 person out of the entire class of 40 turned it in. It is an extremely boring class, but if you study your notes and the chapters and do the homework, you should get away with a C or a B. Show More Show Less
