04/27/14 - Just about the laziest guy you will ever meet, takes FOREVER to grade assignments. His lectures can be moderately intriguing at times, but are often useless when it comes to the tests. Just cheat on the reading checks and you'll be fine. Show More Show Less

06/19/12 - Probably my favorite teacher in all of the high school. He is the better of the two AP Psych teachers and makes the class fun, interesting, and not very difficult. He's a super nice guy, tells very funny stories, and even when we are just taking notes straight for a week, his lectures are still really great. He explains and teaches everything very well and really gets you prepared for the AP test. He does play slight favoritism in the class but it doesn't affect your grade at all. Show More Show Less

Fair) were a great way of changing things up. He did have the tendency to be overly politically correct, and would Show More Show Less

05/04/10 - SO awesome. He's totally chill, and he's so good at explaining the psych material. Sure there are a lot of notes, but you DO actually learn things from this guy, so it's worth it. He made me seriously consider going into psychology. Show More Show Less
