He teaches straight from the textbook and slideshows. He does okay at teaching, but he's not good at making sure everyone understands the material. He is also super funny. He plays the funniest YouTube videos and plays chemistry songs on Fridays. I totally recommend him for an hour that you look forward to during your day.
I'm writing this review about nine years after taking his class. I just need to say that he was awful at teaching and made no effort to help students understand the material. As funny as he was it doesn’t make up for not being able to perform the actual job you were hired to do.
He's a hilarious and good guy, but he just wasn't a great teacher. His exams are tough and when his students don't do well on them, he's quick to blame them. My word of advice is if a whole class does bad on a test, it's not because they didn't study it's because it was taught bad or the test was too hard.
He was a hilarious teacher and a good guy, it's just he gave horrible exam review. Anderson gave us a review sheet and that was it for the final. Overall I still learned a lot of chemistry.
One of the worst teachers I've ever had. He was a really funny instructor, but I learned absolutely nothing in his Chem 215 class. He barely taught, mostly showed boring films and had incomprehensible presentations, then gave extremely difficult tests and quizzes. AVOID AT ALL COSTS
To everybody who says that he doesnt help his students, you obviously haven't been truly trying to receive help because he has stayed after school with me and come in early every day for the past week just to help me with questions on a chapter i missed. Granted, his presentation of the material isn't always easy to understand. But if you dont understand something ask him and he will help you.
Mr Anderson is extremely humorous, although he provides little support to the students. I am a straight A/B student and at the moment I am failing his Chemistry class because of a lack of help and clarity. He is extremely easygoing, but if you ask for help, he pushes you away.
He is the bee's knees, he is the best teacher ever. What is the best type of bear Brown bear physics 220 is the best class I have all year.
Probably one of my favorite teachers his sense of humor is great it is really dry but i like a dry sense of humor
He is a really nice and funny teacher. However, he is not very clear when he teaches and may not answer the question you asked. The class was fun, but I had to teach myself the material to understand
Very boring notes and was helpful a little bit, but his teaching sucks :/
Its a fun class, relativly easy, how ever he could be more helpful / clear while teaching.
Jon Anderson was a good teacher and did provide help with homework if you thought to ask........ Hate to say this, but in every science class there are notes!!!!!!!! :)
He's definitely a partier. He teaches his subject well, and when you talk to him personally he's a very charismatic guy. Typical business-oriented teacher.
Sucks at teaching, but is funny. He doesn't always give all the info for the tests, so expect to study a lot if you want a good grade. You have to learn the material on your own.
Quit your whining. I cant wait for all of you to get to college. Mr. A is soooo funny and the class is totally fair and should be a breeze if your not comatose. Anderson rocks.
Anderson is the best teacher ever!! Take him. He is funny and the class isnt too hard.
One of my favorite teachers ever. Most of the people that don't like him have a problem because they don't put in any effort. Great teacher and a lot of fun!
totally ignores student questions, notes EVERY DAY, doesnt stop making mean jokes!
Mr. Anderson is alright. He needs to not be so laid back and give better directions when assigning projects and working on helping us when needed.
Notes are pretty boring, but he's not a bad teacher. Nice guy.
mr a's really funny!! but it does get a bit boring just taking notes and watching slides.
Mr. A you know I am your favorite Student with my Snorting and my awesome sence of Humor! I AM BETTER THEN U! BUT I STILL LUV YA!
He Does A Good Job Teaching Even When NoOne Is Paying Attention, Right Shaffy
Its Hard To Tell When Youre Telling A Joke Sometimes, But Bio B Still Rocks!
I LOVE YOU MR. ANDERSON!! THE JOKES MADE MY DAY SO MUCH BETTER!!
Your so funny! Yeah it's me your fav. student...remember?
Ahhh. basically my grade says it all, not a good teacher!!!!!!
i thought your class was fun..the jokes were bad but its the thought that counts
This is the class i fell asleep in the most. Its dry humor in monotone
