He was mean and rude and you couldn't feel comfortable asking a question. If you got something wrong he would yell at you instead of trying to help you. Don't take his class unless you are able to handle his disrespect like I had to.

He made my child full of anxiety and fear each day. Everyday, my child never looks forward in his class. And one time child asked him to repeat a questions because he was working on another problem, Dr o let completely yelled at him. And also, the way he reviews things is ineffective because he does not give you a study guid of the whole course but instead gives you random problems that he hasn't review in awhile. He doesn't enjoy his job. 1/10 rating

He does not really teach but rather induces fear into the students in order for them to learn. He gives notes and expects students to process it within minutes, and when someone answers incorrectly on something that is juts learned, he becomes extremely angry and yells. He does not teach but rather uses fear to force students to "learn". I have not learned anything from him but from my own studies. He is not fit for his job if he doesn't have patience for his own students.

Ive only had him for almost half a year, But Dr.O is a great teacher. I would say he is my best science teacher so far. he is very clear with the material, he does quite a few very fun labs, and he relates the material to real life situations. Just BE SURE TO TURN IN YOUR HOMEWORK. YOU GET ONE FREE missing assignment, but after that, its Happy Hour aka detention. Great overall teacher though. -M.A

OK, my review may be a bit outdated, since I had him almost 25 years ago at another high school. If you can get past his ego, he's one of the coolest guys ever. He epitomizes the fact that geeks can be cool. He made me fall in love with physics and now I teach it too. As a teacher, he is pretty tough. Don't ever expect an easy grade, but he is very fair. If you are trying he won't fail you, no matter how bad you are in the subject. He moves at light speed, so don't blink!

Fun class if you can keep up with him! My dad wouldn't let me design my own physics projects, and Dr. O clearly knew they were made by an engineer - he kept most for samples!

Though some think otherwise, Dr. O is a teacher that expects nothing less then the utmost respect and dedication from his students. His teaching methods work and have been proven by his AP test passes

OMG, Dr. O is so hard if you don't understand the curriculum. He'll put you down and on the spot if you don't understand how to do a problem. But, to me he so cool. He's just trying to help u w/life.
