I took Calc BC with Michael Bermel, and had a very different experience than with any teacher at hills. While you will probably get a 5 on the Exam like myself and many others, he is not an easy teacher to deal with. His personality is difficult, and while he is very knowledgeable and brilliant, he can be obnoxious, moody, and misleading. If you care about your GPA don't take this class, because he doesn't. Getting a 4/5 on the AP exam does not mean you will pass his class.
He's the most energetic, empathetic teacher I've ever had. He cares about every one of his students, and it's his person mission to see them all succeed. On top of that, he knows the material inside and out, and he does everything he can to prep you for the AP exam. I look forward to his class every day, even if I'm not the best at calc, because it's just such a great environment.
mr bermel's ap calc ab really taught me alot and prepared me for college calc 1 and 2! he was so nice, friendly, and truly a great guy! i miss him honestly because he made my senior year great! love you mr bermel <3
By far the best teacher ever. Mr. Bermel knows what he's teaching and makes the learning atmosphere enjoyable. He also makes you work hard and really tries to make you learn. Mr. Bermel is the best!
Awesome teacher. He really makes you think with his tests and assigned problems. He has some funny stories too!
I agree; Bermel's da bomb. Who knew that calculus could be so much fun?
The single greatest teacher I have ever had. I will remember him long after I graduate.
He is probably the coolest teacher I've ever had. With the right class, he seems like a person you definitely would have been friends with... if you were cool.
Mr. Bermel is my favorite teacher for all of highschool!!! I'm having a third class of his my senior year! LUV YA BERMEL
Mr.bermel is awsome he always helps us when we need it and explains everything so we understand it and he doesnt get frustrated when we dont get it
