Although prone to losing his temper Charuhas, at ill prepared kids, is a good teacher because of the class he is teaching; Low level honors chemistry. He's a pretty zany character with lots of stories to tell about his past students. Worst part imo is he grades your quizzes and tests in front of you making comments such as, "How'd you even do this?" or "what?" however if you can get past that, and stay on top of his notes, you'll have a memorable time in his class.

He's pretty prone to losing his temper and comes off as unapproachable, but mainly because the kids he vents his anger towards a.) don't even care, and/or b.) confused but too scared/proud to ask for help. He cares about your progress as well as YOUR grade. If you do well in his class (it's NOT hard to at least get a solid B if you actually try), you can earn his respect. He's a good teacher. Trust me. Just don't do anything dumb.

This teacher is too harsh on the kids who don't do as well. He overreacts to the students and teaches the material too fast, then gets angry that we didn't soak up the information he threw at us. Thank god this class is just like Hon. Matt and Energy.

Mr. Charuhas is one of the best teachers in the building. He knows the material flawlessly and has anger issues but he only gets angry because he cares. And to those saying that he is super unapproachable, that's a lie. He will always help and is so nice one on one. He is NOT mean, just cynical. Give him a chance, do your homework packet, and you will excel. His quizzes are harder and tests too, but he prepares you not only for the exam, but for AP Chem. You want him for both semesters.

He's a good teacher, but I've heard other students complain about how hard he is and how mean he is. He was always very nice to me and I did fairly well in his class. So I guess he's just one of those teachers that will be nice to students who understand what's going on.
