Worst. Teacher. Ever. You're honestly better off learning from a scarecrow than this man. His class is so boring that almost everyone either goes on their phones or sleeps. He takes points off for eating in class, and he'll generally take off as many points as possible just for fun. His homeworks take forever to complete (say goodbye to sleep). He's absolutely the worst. Switch out if you can (thank me later).

he does not teach,and expects you to learn from the textbook homework which he assigns a ton of.if you dont do things his specific way he will take off points (hw, tests, quizzes) just for fun. His tests can be easy as they are all multiple choice and he copies all the questions from a worksheet he gives you, but he will not at all prepare you for the AP. I slept through the majority of his class as all her does is use the exact words from the textbook in a powerpoint, and talks at a snails pace

Gerald Simowitz is the man, the myth and the legend. Helpful and insightful however there is quite a bit of textbook reading / independent learning. He cares about teaching and gets excited about class, he makes dry subject matter interesting. In addition he has little things to help you remember concepts and formulas. Work diligently and show enthusiasm and you will go far in his class.

For Simmy, practicepracticepractice = 5. He doesn't really teach - you self learn. The thing is, it's junior year, you're tired, and it's almost impossible to do 30 impossible textbook questions in a week. If you wanna do well, manage time well.

I took AP Physics B to "expand my interest" in science. What do you know, after having him, all of my interest in science got destroyed. Also, watch out for the ostrich technique.

All he does is tell us about Stratton and how he is having a great time working there when we have to do his textbook problems consisting of about 20-40 each week. Basically reads off the textbook and doesn't teach at all. Horrible at explaining stuff. The class has to depend on each other to understand stuff. Good luck if you have him. Rushes the material that there is not enough time to absorb it for the next test.

What can i say about Simmy? dont complain about him, just because he forgets to teach stuff doesnt mean he isnt a good teacher, basically, my point is---if u need skiing lessons, hes the guy to go to. Hes got that GTESA. Dont hate on him. He could be the next G-Money. You feel me?

you will learn very little physics, and be EXTREMELY frustrated while doing so, but it somehow works out in the end. you'll end up with a great grade in his class even if you think you learned nothing, and pass the ap too. dw

Have Fun if you have him for AP Physics B :) Basically it's a course that you have to teach yourself, and the teacher is just their to make the course more confusing. Tests are fair, but if u dont do the HW, FAIL!

Mr. Simowitz bores me to death. his review is no good and takes forever just to explain one problem this probably resulted in failures on the regents.
