Nov 16, 2013 Mr. Kim is a very smart man, but the way he thinks is not the way most, even normal people think, and that becomes a problem on quizzes and tests and basically any assignment. His assessments are ridiculous, and for some reason he doesn't understand that when the average grade on a test is a D and no student gets an A there's a problem. Also, Mr. Kim has the wildest interpretations of literature, and he expects his students to read like he does, which is extremely difficult Flag Rating

Nov 21, 2012 The man, the myth, and the legend! Possibly one of the few teachers who know cinema and can decipher it at its core. Amazing! Flag Rating

Jan 12, 2007 mr kim is a really good teacher. i feel like he could teach all 7 of my classes, and probably do a better job then my current teachers. You learn so much more than English in his class, you learn real life application. Flag Rating

Feb 18, 2006 I miss him. He was great. The only class I didn't fall asleep in all last semester. He doesn't give busy work. and he doesn't hold your hand through every single thing. Flag Rating

Jan 26, 2006 Mr. Kim is one of the most amazing English teachers ever! He knows about just about anything you care to ask and you leave class knowing loads more than just English. The nice thing is that all you really have to do is pay attention to his lectures and you should do okay. And it's not hard because they're so interesting. Flag Rating

Jan 17, 2006 perhaps the worst teacher ever. what is he teaching??? and what does that have to do with anything? disorganized. rambles. will lecture about modernism and existentialism, but the class leaves wondering what they are. no system. never get back tests or papers to learn from. it's pointless being there.

Nov 26, 2005 Mr. Kim is an amazing teacher. He's knowledgeable and has a very cool personality. His teaching ethic/philosophy is very unique and agreeable. The Open-Note assessments can be hard at times; they keep your analytical skills in good shape. He's a very cool guy. Additionally, he listens to Pink Floyd and Nine Inch Nails. Flag Rating

Nov 12, 2005 Mr. Kim is unlike any teacher I've had. I come in a student and leave a scholar! I can't help it! I am now beginning to see films the way he does and read the books the way he does. Flag Rating

Nov 05, 2005 He's one of the smartest person I've met. He pretty scary. He does not lecture from notes, he doesn't pass out photocopies from textbooks or some else's work. he knows things from the top of his head: dates, names, works, theories, pool, motorcyles, food, art, philosophy, whatever. iI feel I can ask him any question.

Nov 05, 2005 I don't know whether he's a combination of howe and payne, but he is funny and he is weird. one thing he is not is easy. he's deceptive. he presents extremely complex ideas in the most accessible ways. original! and your right, he's open notes assessments are not easy. Flag Rating

Oct 06, 2005 funny guy. pretty weird. a cross of ms. howe and mr. payne. and dont be fooled and get excited by his open-note quizzes... they're harder than non open-note quizzes! also instead of havign a lesson to teach, he rambles and gives whatever names/dates/boring stuff comes into his head at that moment.
