Smart guy, but he definitely lacks in teaching skills. His lectures seem lackluster and unprepared and he very frequently goes on tangents for at least a few minutes. His hand writing is ATROCIOUS and he even refuses to write neater - a lot of time is expended from me just trying to decipher his messes. He does not know how to manage class time properly as he frequently runs out of time during a lecture or explanation, and ends up blurting as much as he can before the bell rings.

Most of the negative reviews about McClure are from students who didn't put in much effort yet still expect a high grade. Physics is one of the hardest subjects to handle. McClure may go off-topic every now and then, however, that doesn't make him a bad teacher. It just shows that he wants to establish more than just a blatant student-teacher relationship. McClure's curriculum is really flexible and helps students get both an A and a good understanding of physics. Great teacher :)

90% of the class is about himself, 10% is about physics. I learned more teaching myself than in his class. Unless you want your GPA to suffer, avoid his physics class at all costs!! It's sad that he is the only physics teacher in Gab. This guy should be fired and replaced,

By far the best high school teacher I have ever had. He's always willing to explain things to you and help with any questions you may have. The class can be a bit tough but it's totally worth it, he also writes killer college rec. letters!

One of the most attractive teachers I have ever come across, McClure will be forever be engraved in my memory. His eyes are able to seduce anyone, woman or man, within a 30 meter radius. I will never forget the time he cut off his own arm to donate the maximum amount of blood to charity. His every move captures my attention as I watch him explain concepts in front of me. His body moved to the rhythm of hso tapping pen, his muscles expanding and contracting. I long for the day he will be mine.

The man is a great teacher. He does his job, and even if he goofs around sometimes it never interfered with his work. Never have I seen him blatantly goof around when there was someone needing help or something needed to be done. You sir were a gentleman and a scholar.

very hard to get a good grade. His grading system must be preventing ppl to get an A/B. He doesn't prepare at all for his lectures and admits he plays video games/watch anime before going to work

Definitely the hardest class I've taken in high school, but McClure will help if you're willing to put in the time. He moved a little quickly for most of the class, but it could just be the material.

Physics is not meant to be an easy class. McClure does a good job of making this class as understandable as possible. I think my peers lack comprehension and enthusiasm.

If you are ever wondering why many people are failing, it is because mcclure doesn't clear things up in class or for homework. Honestly if he had a better method of teaching and actually EXPLAINING everything clearly i would have never dropped that class. He is a great teacher, but not for physics. He assumes you are as smart as him....thats a problem....
