While he's very knowledgeable, he makes no effort to help those who are having problems. I learned best by interaction, but his classroom is a lecture-only environment, and it made things very difficult to keep up. He also does not allow students to use the restroom (even in emergencies). Tests have absolutely nothing to do with the material discussed in class. Here's a video on photosynthesis - psych, the exam is on DNA! Awful teacher.
he's salty sometimes but overall he's aight.
Mr. Hunt is a man who knows his subject as well as his students, he is very committed to his students
All the people who are complaining about him are just (in the nicest term) wimps. They still want to be babied by teachers and have the teachers come up to them and ask if they understand or need help etc.. Mister Hunt helps you realize, that high school is about becoming self-dependent. You are not going to succeed w/o trying and applying yourself, and he teaches you that in a real way.
Hunt is a unique teacher at VPHS because of his teaching style. He lectures, you take notes, study, and take a quiz/test. Some students have a difficult time adjusting to his class, but once you learn the way he runs his class and how you should be taking notes, his class should not be too much of a challenge.
I approve of this message.
Paul is a pretty cool guy. Love im
He is one of the most memorable teachers I had at VPHS. I graduated in 2010 but the lessons he taught me carried on through college and now into medical school. At the time, his class stressed me out the most, and I questioned why he taught things certain ways, but now I understand where he was coming from and appreciate his unique methods. The things you learn from him will stick with you throughout life, whether the information is biology related or not.
BEST TEACHER YOU'LL EVER HAVE!! It's a big adjustment from middle school, but he prepares you for high school. Sure, he doesn't answer all questions, but he wants you to learn instead of being spoon-fed the answer. He allows you to succeed in the class if you work hard. And, whether you think the material is relevant or not, it always ends up being applicable in the end. All other subjects - math, history, english - are applied in this class. One of the highest AP passing rates at VP. Miss him!
A very knowledgeable man, which I highly respect. However, he often lets his VERYconservative views get mixed into his teaching, which almost entirely undetected by the students. He seems to favor some students over others, often prioritizing them over others who actually do need his help, sometimes entirely waving off questions by those who he has a low approval rating of. Seems to enjoy loading students with homework, and lectures are often sidetracked by other topics.
He is an awesome teacher. If you frequently ask him questions and actually study, you will end up getting a good grade.
His class is difficult and wants his class prioritized over others. Picks favorites and will sometimes mock or ignore you if you aren't a part of that group or not doing well. He knows his material but doesn't condense it into a main point and instead rambles on and occasionally breaks it up with useless info like the TC railroad, a board game, or the location of a university (all of which were on a quiz -_-). Only + would be his curve which lets dedicated hardworkers to achieve high As and EC.
he is an awful person to be around. homework loads extremely stressful.has a look that makes you feel stupid if you ask a question. DO NOT TAKE HIS CLASS UNLESS YOU DON'T WANT A LIFE.
Mr. Hunt is a great teacher and students just joining his class will take time to adapt to his teaching style. The honors class is pretty much a prep for the AP class. Don't worry you'll get the hang of it.
He is one of the best and most difficult teachers you will ever have. Everything you know will be turned on its head. WARNING: Do not procrastinate and prepare for vague instructions. In this class you teach yourself; you will be challenged. PREPARE.
do not believe what he says you are going to make it though high school, college and life. it is true that you should surround yourself with successful people and you should exchange study guides with your peers. be sure to speak up in class!!!
He found out I was in band and immediately turned me down and created a mean judgement of me. I'll ask him a question and he either walks away or focuses on whatever else he's doing. He never calls on me and makes HS too stressful for freshmen.
Mr. hunt is a great teacher. He's nice, funny and his class is one of the most interesting classes on campus.
Awesome teacher. Wasn't easiest class, but he taught well and always answered questions. Very nice person and very lenient. Prepare before class and be ready for quizzes.
Can't argue with results(5s). Sophmore year if you go with chem instead of AP, you'll be sitting in Corbett, wishing with all your heart that you hadn't. Do the work, dare to enjoy yourself.
A very great teacher. He can be a little confusing at times, but still. You learn so much in his class, and it's a lot of fun! I'll miss having him as a teacher.
Talks to fast, hard to understand, gives a ton of homework, doesn't always answer our questions,
Well, well, well. The shoe is on the other foot. No im kidding. Unless you are an incompetent person you will thrive in this class. Though I think it should say politics instead of science.
stick it out with him freshmen. take his class sophmore year. i did, got a 5 on AP test and 800 on sat 2. better teacher than you think!
Mr. Hunt PWNS! I've learned more English in his class than in Mrs. Will's. I love how he allows anyone to get extra credit by doing well in quizzes and going above the curve, also by turning in early
This is probably my favorite class because, even though it is f*ckin hard, mr. hunt makes it a bit more enjoyable. He taught me things that i would have never learned if i didn't take that class. ;]
I absolutely loved Mr. Hunt's class. He changed my life and my way of thinking, and I'll always have fond memories of his rants. And now, I, like many of his former students, aim to major in Biology.
I don't know what everyone is complaining about. He is an excellent teacher and is not unreasonable, and contrary to popular belief, his class is not difficult.
He obviously knows what he's teaching very well, but the kind of work and the difficulty of tests and quizzes are too much.
hes a cool guy, fun to argue with and play 13 with and a really good teacher, even if he went to usc (BOOO) haha
Mr hunt is definitely one of the best teachers at villa park. As scary as people make him sound, he really isnt. The class is usually always xciting n fun although a bit hard. I'll 4 sho miss him.
he's a funny guy and knows a lot about biology he wants whats best for the students but he teaches at a very hard level which means u have to match up or ur basically fail.
He's really funny but his class is only hard because it actually makes us think instead of all the other boring classes.
*clear throat* as i wait for the night to end, my last thought before i go to sleep each night is: what did i learn in AP Bio today? i remember because he drills it into my brain. mr, hunt is amazing.
Mr Hunt is Awesome! one of the few teachers who actually gets to know his students and really cares. not to mention he's an incredible teacher.
tough but knows his subject and he is political true but hilarious to talk to
hes one of those teachers youll always remember but he is pretty intolerant actually which is ironic in a science teacher
k guys, he does get sidetracked, but with how much you actually learn and understand, he is an amazing teacher. but yes, being a usc fan does help you get an A. lol. well. kinda. 2 thumbs up.
Basically, you will learn everything in his class under one condition... you actaully try? ? I know geez try? Pretty much best teacher at the school hands down, but you do have to read and try. GREAT!
he's a great teache, but i don't like the way he tests students. it's so hard and not fair. he always counts the key words only and that doesn't make scence at all.
one word. sarcastic. and at a level that will orient you into the world out there. if you can't handle it, look to have an even more difficult time in college and beyond. go mr. hunt!
Great teacher! He is a guy who likes to argue with people, so if you want to get along with him, make sure to speak up in class. He also set me up with my soon to be fiance...
freshman year he seemed like he only favored smart kids..but then in his AP class i learned a LOT and if you try hard the class will be a blast.
Mr. Hunt is the worse teacher at VPHS. If your not a republican good luck next year. Do us all a favor and just leave.
He is by far the BEST teacher i've ever had! Too bad i can't have him as a teacher next year. If you work hard in his class, you'll learn more than you can ever imagine.
Mr. Hunt will not respect u if you're not one of his favorites.alks too much about stuff he doesnt know. 1 of the few teachers at vp i cant respect
Mr. Hunt is a wonderful teacher and mentor. He makes you appreciate the complexity of life. He has inspired me to major in a field relating to biology.
He's definitely one of the best teachers I've ever had. Despite our disagreements in political preferences, he gets the info to stay in your head. Keep it up.
Mr. Hunt was THE greatest teacher I have ever had. He inspired me to major in biology in college, and he is unparalleled as both a teacher and a mentor.
i took mr hunts regular bio class freshman year, it was a great class, i learned alot , im going to be a junior im happy i had him as a teacher.
Mr. Hunt is a very rude and disresepectful teacher. He may know a lot about science,but he spends too much time talking about football, NASCAR, and politics.
an ok teacher. dont like him. but in class i try to like him but he hvent earned my respect yet. so. hes ok. not so great or not so bad like others said.
He doesn't favor smart kids, he favors kid who try hard. If you are dumb and don't try, why should he care about you? Mr. Hunt is the best teacher at VP
he's a pretty cool guy, but i had to get a tutor to pass the class. gets off subject A LOT!
I can easily say mr.hunt has been my favorite teacher & my favorite class. yes he favors the smart kids (i'm not one of them), but who cares the class is great
how bout YOU start an AP class and see how easy it easy to have a 96% pass rate. THEN you can decide wat rating mr hunt deserves. hes awesome.
i can honestly say ive learned more in this AP class than any other ive taken at vp. if youre willing to work and listen..take it
Ylearn a lot. He gets really side tracked >>Every Day<<. If he doesn't think you are smart, or you don't pick fights with him he ignors you. :(
You better be a Republican, and you better get on his good side from day 1, good luck, ALWAYS TAKE NOTES
He is a great teacher and its too bad the ratings dont show it
dude mr hunt ur one of the best teachers at this skool. I guess he does favor the smarter students, but iz coo for me. I can't wait to take his AP course.
Talks alot of politics and a lot about USC. He is an awesome teacher
USC fan and Dodgers fans.........cant say i like that about him, but after this year, i will realize he's a good teacher, but for now.....UCLA & Angels for life
Never helps. Always puts down. Lectures are never clear. Always wants to be right. Talks about football too much which wastes time. Favors the smarter students.
He's a good teacher, just a little indimidating. He never means ill, just talks very straight forwardly.
great class... likes to make fun of people though... ah well, not so much me so it's all good
After getting kicked outta his room forever I stopped caring, but seriously his class is like crossing the ocean without a boat.
Got a 5 on the AP test, and an 800 on the SAT II without ever opening the book. Good teacher.
he expects us to be mature young adults and be in harge of your own education, whch he offers. poepl e fails becuase they dotn take that opportunity.
