AMAZING TEACHER. He's the best teacher I've ever had throughout high school and I wish I could have him again. He is beyond nice, super helpful, and genuinely wants you to do well. He puts what he taught you on tests, and also relates the history to current events so you can be more aware about the world and understand the material better. 100% would recommend as a teacher to have.

I only had him for a month now but he is honestly such a great teacher. If you listen to him in class you don't have to study at all for the test, and his lectures in general are actually interesting. He makes you understand the world you are living in now and it's really eye-opening. The one concern I do have though is how we are going to prepare for the regents when he only teaches us current events, but from the looks of it he has a plan for that.

Taken all three of his classes by now, he's an amazingly cool and understanding teacher. His classes are really easy and relaxing, and he doesn't care if you do work in his electives.
