Mr. Kim is a great teacher; he knows a lot about math (duh!), but he also incorporates common core into it so that you barely even realize it! For me, whenever I had a question, he'd answer it right away. (Although sometimes he acted like I was a bit dumb for asking) He's nice, he's funny, and he's good at teaching. I'd give Mr.Kim an 9/10

This is the best teacher around. If you don't get something in his class he will explain it you right away. He prepares us really well for tests and quizzes. If you get his lecture you are totally fine. Also, on his tests and quizzes he only puts questions that we seen before, he just changes the numbers. I really recommend Mr.Kim, and you are lucky if you get him as a teacher. He is really helpful and really explains how to get an A in his class. Best teacher around!!!

Many of my friends loved Mr. Kim. But my experience with him as my 7th grade math teacher was really eye opening. I found out that not only could my classmates and other young people be bullies, but so can adults.
I was never a kid in his class that was disruptive, I was just quieter than the other kids. But he loved to call on me and humiliate me in front of the other kids when I didn't know how to do a "simple" math problem. Mr. Kim is one of those teachers I'll remember forever. Sadly.

All I can say is that my daughter, who is very critical of teachers in general, thought he was brilliant, and a great teacher. She really learned the material and thought he taught it very well. This was a welcomed change from other math teachers who simply present the material and hope everyone understands it. Thank you Mr. Kim!!

He's a great math teacher and he makes class fun. I've liked math before but I haven't liked it this much. He makes things look hard but once he teaches them, they're really easy. Some of his tests are confusing though and he's really strict about grading tests and such. But other than that he's a really good teacher.

Mr. Kim is a great teaher. I had him in advanced and he was wonderful! He is tough I can admit that but he is tough in a good way. He is trying to challenge us so that we can be prepared for our future lives. Also he does give a lot of hw but better that then not knowing anything and not being ready for high school. Mr. Kim is a great TEACHER remember he is a teacher who is trying to TEACH so people who say he gives to much hw its only because he is TEACHING us thats what he is supposed to do!

Mr. Kimmmmmm best math teacher everrrrrr!!!!! Seriously, made me realize I was actually good at math. I had been taught and convinced by bad elementary school math teachers that I was a bad student that was terrible at math. In Alg. 1 Mr Kim's great style of teaching helped me realize otherwise. He is also god. The lights went out once when he got mad at a student, then came back on when the student was sent out.
