This teacher is a joke. If you get him for Honors Chem, SWITCH TEACHERS! He is never there - good ole Union working for you there - he takes ALL of his sick/personal days. He throws temper tantrums during class, such as banging his fist on the table and slamming his computer closed. This teacher definitely does not live up to Ridgewood High Schools "Tradition of Excellence".

don't take his class if you want to know chemistry. he misses a lot of class, never holds labs. probably missed 20% of classes. this instructor was a real disappointment for a school that is supposed to be so superb. you have to teach yourself.

mr tuohey kay is really unengaged and lazy and slow and boring now. very unclear teaching. most kids fall asleep daily. youll teach yourself on your own a lot. hes silly and nice though, he just doesnt make kids excited to learn chem nowadays.

Possibly the greatest teacher ever. Great, handsome man right here. Even better tatse in polos. Legit though. One flaw-- He's a stickler if you walk in ten seconds late. Still a fantastic class that i wish I can take over and over again.. maybe just in the afternoon when i can't possibly show up late.
