He is biased towards some students. I feel like he tries not to display favoritism, but it happens anyways. His tests can be very hard sometimes, but he prepares you well for the DBQ on the AP test.

Mr. Liem is so awesome!! I LOVE HIM SM! He really cares about you and your grade. In second semester, a lot of people said "he doesn't teach AT ALL!" But I think he was teaching less on purpose so we can learn how to self study well. Also he's like GIANT TEDDY BEAR!!! he has the best hugs in the world!!! And you have to pay attention during his lectures and read your textbook/ do your hw every night. IT HELPS A LOT

He not only teaches history very well, he genuinely cares about you succeeding in school. He does want you to do well on tests but to more importantly, understand history as a whole. And gives good advice to you as a sophomore. A great teacher.
