He is extremely sarcastic and at first he may seem insensitive but once you realize why he does the things he does you will realize he is the best at what he does. He's a psychology major and he uses mind games to get the best out of his students. I never had a teacher like Appell and I likely never will again. If you "get him" he's the best. If you can't think beyond what you observe superficailly then you won't like him. Have faith in Appell!!

Good teacher, good at teaching concepts, and good at guiding students through the process of solving chemistry equations. However, his drumming, singing, and intentional elocution of words in a vague accent often confuses and distracts less capable students. Also, he forgot my name and thus refers to me only as the Batman. In the end, still an amazing teacher.

I am a freshman in college, and I still think back to how amazing Mr. Appell was when I had him my junior year for AP Chem. I looked forward to going to his class every day- he knew how to make his class a fun and comfortable environment while teaching the material in a very clear way. Even outside of the classroom, he was always so easy to talk to, whether it was about chem or anything else. He is the best teacher I ever had!!!

For AP Chem it was a tough year. Appell does the job, however a lot of this course reflects on your efforts not just the teacher's efforts. Appell does his part, you need to do yours to succeed.
