Very confused as to why Lisa has such a low rating here. Definitely one of the better teachers to cover the AP statistics courses

AWESOME GUY! He is so kind and relaxed and has a great presence in class. He teaches math so CLEARLY and goes slowly over the tough material. For anyone who isn't the biggest fan of math this guy is a gem. He will make you like math!!!

Frequently teaches class with a cheat sheet in hand, and the students are always correcting his mistakes. Don't do this however, because he gets very mad when you tell him he's wrong

Eh, his Math 320/330 Classes weren't terrible hard, but he's somewhat unclear when it comes to grading and just teaching in general... and when he gets mad, he gets PISSED.

A great teacher if you show him respect. Follow his rules and he's great. Break them and he will get mad quickly but briefly.

He's a complete jerk. He gets frustrated and angry over the silliest things. He needs to cool down, listen to what his students have to say and be patient, but, he'll meet with you if he has the time.

Mr. Lisa comes to class without a lesson plan, a good attitude, and overall without a clue of what hes doing. Students are constantly forced to correct him and are normally yelled at for doing such.

Mr. Lisa does not know a thing about statistics. You do well on the AP but class is torture. Whether he knows more about other areas of math, I'm not entirely sure, but I doubt it.

Mr. Lisa can't control his temper. It is very scary when he yells loudly about tiny things with his fists raised like he is about to punch you. He seems nice at first but once you get to know him...

Taking this course was like having a dumb hockey jock teaching the class, every example he used was about his college hockey team, or another sport. Painfully boring class and he speaks with a monotone voice. I dropped it, I couldn;t take it
