DeLarme is the greatest! Best history teacher I ever had. I'm a junior now in AP US and I feel more prepared to face the AP after taking his class last year. He has high expectations because he cares and wants you to do a good job. If you ever have a problem with him it's probably because you didn't try talking to him respectfully.

Mr.Delarme is a pretty funny and quirky guy, its not so hard to get an A or even at least a B in his class if you just do the homework and essay charts, he seems to know the material pretty well and a lot of the time he talks about his life in class but it gives a more laid back and calm vibe to the course. His tests are difficult and even with lots of studying it's still kinda hard to pass them. Just don't procrastinate in his class or you'll feel overwhelmed and try to ask and answer questions

Delarme is one of the chillest teachers at ECR as long as you don't disrespect him. His tests are difficult so study a few night before a test or quiz. For his homework I found taking notes on each paragraph instead of answering the questions he gives to be more beneficial because of close reading and so you don't have to read a whole chapter or unit over again. Also, in his AP class, get the Kaplan AP study book, it is a life saver when studying for the AP test as well as his tests.

Delarme was the chilliest teacher I had my sophomore year. His class was always really fun until we periodically got off topic but it didn't affect me. His tests are hella hard so study up kiddos and the homework is a time consumer if u wait until the last night (good luck) but I felt really prepared for the AP test. You will initially hate the essay charts but they're actually blessings and just be respectful, he's a giant man-child.

Mr. Delarme is a really nice teacher and the fact that he talks about his own life might be annoying to others, but to me, it keeps the class fun and not too boring. If you're a persistent and hard worker, this class will be easy for you. Just do your reading!! I can't stress that enough! work hard and work hard on your essay charts. Don't expect to get an A unless you put 100% into this class. Many people say it's extremely hard and I can see why, pace yourself.

He knows history. Idk what other people are talking about when I took AP with him the class was super easy especially since world history is really interesting (covers every culture and time). If you really want an A in this class you could get one without blinking an eye. He can be sexist or weird but trust me that wont affect grades that's just the in class environment which can be really cool if you participate and make things more interesting. I joked around a lot but hes cool about it.

He's a good teacher. Most people who leave bad reviews are too lazy to read the textbook. You do have to read - you won't pass if you don't - and his lectures are supplemental, and more interesting than reading. He also asks if anyone needs clarification about the reading and he'll explain it well. He brings the history to life and makes the information understandable. He'll prepare you well and you'll enjoy his class. Do your work! (and don't blame the teacher for your inadequacy as a student)

This dude is possibly the worst teacher I've ever had in my entire life. This dude is sexist and if you're a guy in his class, good luck lmao. He doesn't teach all he does is tell his stupid life experiences and he changes his mind all the time. I wish i could cuss this man out and knock some sense into him because i really don't understand how someone like this lardo can become a teacher. rip if you have him, and be ready for some self studying.

Delarme is one of those teachers who are difficult to define. Sometimes can be the chillest person, helping you out with your grade and taking extra time to go through material. At other times, he can be a little over-the-top with his assignments and takes strange pleasure in making fun of the kids. Has a propensity to play favorites but gets the job done. Just do all the work and you can average a mid-C on his tests and be guaranteed a high B or an A.

Mr.Delarme is not only a great teacher, but also a great person. The reviews he has are mostly negative, which I do not understand at all. People say he can't teach, and that he isn't helpful. If you took the time to listen up and pay attention, maybe you would learn a little more. He is always there if you need help, so just go up and be nice, talk to him, and ask whatever you need to.

Honestly, Mr. DeLarme is a pretty good teacher. He is so kind, FUNNY, and really cares about the students. He has helped me out in many situations and I thank him for that. Anyone who gets DeLarme is lucky, just know you will get impossible hard exams and easy essay tests (if you study the prompts). My only negative about DeLarme is that he could of spent more time reviewing before Unit Exams and could of reviewed more in class for the multiple choice of the AP Test. Overall, MrD is GREAT!!!

He's a sweet and genuine man with a quirky personality and a passion for his job which is worth envying. He can make a topic interesting with the use of fun facts and he is very tolerant of even the most obnoxious students. He was made a father about a year ago, so he lacks a little sleep sometimes, but he always manages to keep a smile on his face. He likes to joke and though some of his jokes are cheesy (which he knows and admits), nothing is worth taking offense to. Great teacher.

I had Mr. Delarme for AP World. In the beginning of the class he tells you to write a card about yourself. little did one know he would later on read off the information of that card to the whole class. He enjoys making fun of his students in front of the whole class. He also got a temper & would rage out to his whole class. He also invaded some students phones... He also called me out multiple times for no reason. He also can not teach at all. The class is very boring too. The work is loads too

He knows his stuff but the only problem is he does not know how to teach. Takes all his exams from the publisher and does never go over the material that is on it. He is my Advanced Placement World History instructor and he is literally one of the worst instructors I have ever had. Less than 60% of his students passed the Advanced Placement Exam last semester. This guy needs to go back to college and get a degree in something else (NOT TEACHING) at least not AP.

delarme is a really nice guy. he prefers to tell you stories rather than lecture. the tests can be hard, so make sure to study. there is tons of extra credit, so take advantage of it, you can end up with over 100% in the class and then you don't have to take the final.

This teacher is amazing!!! I took him for U.S. History and he was so passionate about teaching the material. Before taking his class I hated history but now I love it. He prepares you for tests pretty well by having study guides, review games, and much more fun stuff. Tests are a little challenging but if you read the book and do the study guide you are bound to get a good grade. I think he really knows about history and loves teaching it. Sometimes there are pop quizzes (he tries to help you)!!!
