He makes me want to fall asleep and he explains simple things in a way that makes it hard to understand. He doesn't teach what's on the homework and the tests are really hard. He speaks in a monotone voice and just paces around the class looking at the ground. There are so many awkward silences when he talking and just pauses. No one steps out of line in his class because he can be super scary. He can be super sarcastic when you ask questions and when you do ask him he just makes you feel dumb.

HIs class can get very boring in my opinion. He is very smart, but can be a little sarcastic when you ask a question. I found ap psych to be easy as far as ap classes go. I found myself sleepy every class. Not the most exciting. I recommend the class if you're a kid who just wants a GPA bump.

Paces back and forth, back and forth makes me dizzy. I've never seen so many honors students fall asleep in a class. Mr. Simon's method of teaching is to assign homework and teach it when it is due. Also, when you ask for help it's like he's secretly laughing at you for not understanding the concepts he teaches. Test are tricky.

Great teacher! Never had him for math, but his psychology class is super fun and interesting. He expects a lot from his students, especially because it is an AP class, but overall, he is always willing to help if you have a question (even if it is not psychology related, he has helped me on math).

Mr. Simon rocks. The material is kinda frustrating at times, but he's there to help you. He knows Pi to like, the 165th decimal. Good teacher.

He's a good teacher. He plays music during warm-ups and work times. He also teaches new lessons carefully instead of murmuring over parts of the lesson.
