Mr. Lau is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He is clear and understanding when teaching both Economics and American Government! It is due to his passion toward Economics that lead me to choose it as my second major in college! Thanks Mr. Lau

Had him for econ. & gov. I LOVE MR. LAU! He isn't as hard as people make him sound. Very clear notes & lectures. Funny and you learn a lot about life and gov + econ. Easy going...can talk to him about ANYTHING. Study his flashcards and review notes for a B. But read the book if you want that A. I'll miss this class the most.

His class starts out really hard but you get used to it within the first week. Hes actually one of the best teachers at AHS and he makes learning fun with his simulations and activities. His flashcards are also extremely helpful. Very funny guy, made my summer enjoyable. He also knows how to have fun

Mr. Lau's the best teacher ever. He explains everything thoroughly and is incredibly witty. READ the book everyday 'cos you might have pop quizzes. Study! An 'A' in his class is a bit hard to get.
