Best teacher I've had in Stuy. I had him for AP Bio... He sounds like a boring teacher, but if you actually pay attention he's fairly easy to follow and extremely funny. His American-British accent is

Dr. Utting is a smart and entertaining man. He knows very well what he's doing but his lessons are very boring and needlessly complex. He's a nice man but a harsh grader. He's a very sweet, sardonic,

This man is AMAZING. Great teacher, very lenient but still makes sure you learn. Makes the best Banana Walnut bread!! Also VERY funny, esp. when he sneaks in crude jokes. He's GREAT.

Extremely helpful lessons but you have to work pretty hard to do well on his tests. That said, he's lax with project deadlines and is not just someone you'll like as a teacher, but as a person.

This guy is the most laid back teacher ever. He's so cool and he has some pretty funny stories to go along with his lectures. He's really chill with recs too so i definetely recomend getting one.

As a Stuy alum, I can say he was the best teacher I had in my four years. Had him for AP Bio as a senior, missed a lot of class and regret it now. He is the most knowledgeable, fairest teacher I've had, college included.

Dr. Utting is by far the coolest teacher I've ever had. He's seriously awesome and (atleast for Mol Bio) he gives like one test a term. Just make sure you keep a log because it WILL be important

Dr. Utting knows his stuff, but his tests are hard, and I tended to doze off in his class. But he really does try. Liked him =).

Not an easy grader, but was a good teacher nonetheless...taking AP Bio with him made intro bio easier in college (had same textbook). Has faded English accent.

Seven years since I was in HS and he is still the best teacher I have ever had. He really cares that you learn and will do whatever it takes to help out.

Even college bio professors cannot compare to this guy. We gave him a lot of headaches, but he always too it in stride. Big T.S. Eliot fan.
