he jokes around a lot. always giving worksheets. his "shortcuts" to some stuff are pretty nice. exams tho. had to go afterschool for tutoring just to get my A haha. you should really do tutoring with him if you're struggling. i learned a lot from him that way ! oh, and do your homework. DO IT . my whole class didnt do it one day and ... that ended bad .
Mr.Tong is really easy if you do the math homework everyday because homework helps you remember the lesson. If you don't do the HW, you will fail on the tests. Other than that, he is fairly easy and understable.
he really wants to help you remember the material in his class
Literally the worst math teacher ever... He is not a bad guy but he really can't teach...
Basically a self-teach class, but he's entertaining and pretty cool. His tests will prepare you for Calculus BC to some extent in the sense that his tests are difficult and will have some problems that make you want to cry. Regardless, I am grateful I took his class since it taught me to be independent and rely on myself rather than on the teacher.
calls like a few ppl by their real names. Tests weren't that easy. But He can teach. I think i started to like math again thanks to him. Wonderful teacher-ish.
Tong is too full of himself. He's always bragging about how he's more knowledgeable than all the other math teachers(especially likes to compare himself to Lowell teachers). Although it may or may not be true, I do not want to hear him going on about it everyday... I simply want him to focus on the lesson instead of always getting sidetracked. He shows extreme favoritism. He only called maybe 3 people by their actual names in my class. To everyone else it's "hey you". Good luck in his class.
Great person but taught really fast (very confusing and not helpful) and wasted a lot of class time. Had to mostly study independantly to understand the lessons, tests were pretty hard too.
Its impossible to describe how much Mr. Tong is dedicated to his job and wants his students to succeed. All you have to do is work hard and ask Mr. Tong for help when needed. Mr. Tong is an amazing mathematician.
Mr. Tong is my hero. I loved his class...his lovely jokes time to time relaxed my wired/stressed brain. I will miss him because I have just graduated. Heck, I already do.
Tong was 1 of the few teachers who gave me a chance to shine. He cares so much for his students success
He's a great and caring teacher. He teaches shortcuts and his way of doing the math. They're actually pretty useful so remember the little shortcuts he teaches you. I sometimes wished he went by the book bc it did get hard to follow. He likes to tell stories. On block days, he would often get side tracked and tell stories for 30 mins. I don't like his tests and always get extremely nervous on it. He occasionally pulls tricky stuff on tests. He really wants his students to get the material.
Wasted a lot of class time. Made jokes and told stories-the uninteresting kind. 95% - learn independently. 5% in class teaching. He's mediocre in the field of mathematics but can't teach. Bad teacher.
Great teacher. Teaches very fast. (you better keep up or you will never catch up) We love his stories. He hobby is fishing. Likes to play.
Didn't do well in his class, but he is a respectable teacher. I'd recommend going to tutoring to keep up with the course material.
had him for 2 years. GREAT teacher. always willing to help. teachs many shortcuts. love his jokes and stories. his test r time-consuming, without the extra time into lunch, i would have nvr finished.
one of my favorite teachers. cuts me slack all the time. teaches great and is amazing at math and very fast
he cant teach well to a class. its so boring in his class to sit in that i mostly sleep. But you can easily get a good grade if you fall behind by going to tutoring.
He teaches so many shortcuts which I loooove and also tries to make us laugh with his not so great humor..... but i laugh anyways cause its funny how he thinks hes funny. =]
[email protected] but moves pretty fast. Cool stories but he has bad humor.
he's a fun teacher, entertains the class...with his stories, etc but he teaches in the way lots of people understand
Mr. Tong is a good teacher! Really obssesed with his kid! Always talking about him! Easy Class and Easy tests!
thinks he can teach, but cant really make it interesting. Only good at planting seeds
He's the best math teacher I ever had! Never liked math and still don't, but at least now I understand it thanks to Mr. Tong. Went from a D to a B due to him.
