mr. elert teaches exactly how a college professor would teach. everything is on your own. if you're not ready to work hard for your grade, don't waste your time in his class.

By far the worst physics teacher I’ve ever had. Even though he’s a very SMART person that doesn’t mean he can teach. He’s one those people that has knowledge but doesn’t want to share it. He

Good teacher and is good at teaching the conceptual side of physics. Cool guy and he's funny (At least to me...) He also seems like a 4chan user... haha

Can't teach. Grading policy has everything as 25%..25% of grade based on 2 lab reports.In this class you are on your own. He won't teach you a thing. All he says is figure it out.

Mr. Elert influenced me to become an engineer, and now (10 years later) I'm about to graduate with a PhD in EE. He is the only Midwood HS teacher I still vividly remember!

Mr. Elert may be good at physics, but he sure isn't good at teaching. His temper tantrums are unacceptable. He also asks trivial questions that no one ever knows the answer to.
