Excellent chemistry teacher. Works hard to explain a difficult subject to the students. Always willing to help after school or during lunch.
Also had him for TJ summer chem. Knows his stuff (but doesn't really explain well), good guy, has horrible jokes. Make sure you ask a lot of questions if you don't understand something.
I graduated in 97 and had AP chemistry class. Mr. Kauffman was the best teacher I had in McLean high school!
Hard teacher, but fair. He really tries to help. Said it is not ethical to TALK about telepathy. Said if anyone is telepathic, they probably feel a lot of pain. Seems to try hard.
Anyone who doesn't love Hadan Kauffman doesn't have a soul
Had for TJ Chem. Very enthusiastic, seems to know about everything, and manageable tests. Do it again next year!
Had for TJ Summer Chem; awesome teacher, knows a lot about...well...everything
Really cool guy. He always answers the question along with extra factoids as well. You can tell he loves what he does.
Had him for TJ Summer Chem. He always has interesting facts to share; you can tell his passion for the subject. Sometimes his overenthusiasm makes it hard to understand.
Learned more from him than from any other chem teacher.Can be arrogant at times,but usually for good reason.Takes each student at own pace.Sometimes answers the wrong question.
enjoys what he teaches & it shows in his enthusiasm. easy to approach, but his way of teaching needs time to catch onto. very learned man, though. he tries to connect with students
Had him for TJ summer chem. Knows a wide range of topics, gets very enthusiastic, somewhat insensitive, VERY helpful and easy to talk to, fair tests, takes a while to get used to.
Maybe it was the fast pace but I had a hard time understanding many concepts. very nice teacher and made the chem cool maybe more interesting than understandable thanks
He is a wonderfrul teacher who really make you think and progress the information. Certain units are confusing, but he explains them well and the chem book is very helpful :-)!!!
I don't get Chem at all but he really tries to get you to understand it. Nicest guy. He's a genius in real life (did important research in his career) but he truly loves teaching.
THE BEST SCIENCE TEACHER EVER. HE IS SOOOOO NICE AND HELPFUL!!!
One of the best teachers in existence. You are blessed if you have this teacher. Fair and clear. Class is sometimes difficult and hard to understand.
this guy is a genius, but the problem is he thinks were as smart as he is and thats what makes the class hard, studying doesn't help cuz his tests r hard as all
Such a pleasant, patient, and nice guy. He made you want to be a good student.
he is a great teacher, though he is sort of confusing at times. he works with you so if you are committed its not extremely hard to get an A
very hard and can't understand easily. also kinda picky :/
He's THE nicest and GREATEST teacher ever! even though i didnt understand anythign in his honors chem..he was sooo HELPFUL and understanding! hes soo awesome!!!
Understood Chem1 better than AP this year, but still love that class ZUUMDAHL. And the row behind me last quarter was awesome. Mr. Kauffman knows everything!
A great teacher. There's lots of complicated stuff I don't get, but he helps me understand it.
he's awesome in class and out... he's really nice to his students and very helpful to... he is one of the greatest teachers in McLean
he is a nice person but he was not very clear with his teaching
Mr. Kauffman is Buddha! He's the best chemistry teacher in the school, and a cool guy. Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy!
Should be a college professor. Helps you get by in every which way.
Can you say genius? I almost failed his class but he did everything in his power to help me learn. I want to be him after i graduate!
wonderful teacher who knows his stuff and has a fun time teaching it. very good class!
A somewhat hard class, with little clarity at times, though the textbook helps. Generally he's a nice and understanding guy who uses various teaching methods.
Great Great guy. Friendly, and a great role model for students
