Knows what he's talking about, he's a nice guy and all. But the exams suck because he does not explain well enough the text material, but when he does it ends up being something different entirely. Really bad at answering questions and not helpful at all.
Best teacher and overall a great person. He will get to know you, and do whatever he can to help you if you're struggling. If you went to Ipswich High School and didn't have him, I feel sorry for you. Mr. Ames is the best!
Mr. Ames is my favorite teacher ever. He always makes history fun and interesting to learn. The lectures can get a bit long sometimes, but that's more the course than the teacher. Also, he tries to break up the lectures with discussions and movies, which is more than I can say for most other teachers. He's also a pretty amazing tech director :)
Mr. Ames is the best teacher. He is really helpful and gets to know you. You'll love him. I've had him for A.P US and HWMW. - S. Evans
Very knowledgeable. Funny as well. He does trivia once a week with candy prizes, and has great accents.
You know what? People say he shouldn't teach A.P. because they don't like the work. He has a life outside of school and he's got other obligations so he won't be there all the time. He's helpful and really cares about his students. If you don't want
Mr. Ames is one of the best teachers at this school.
This guy will bore you to tears. Smart yes, but all he does is drone on and on and on, never around when you have a question and sometimes not even in class.
The BEST! Has an incredible amount of knowledge. Should be a college prof. FRIENDLY! INTERSTING
Lecture + Lecture + Lecture + Lecture + Lecture = 1 very boring week. Sadly, it goes on week after week after week.
I love Ames, he's a great guy who does too much and doesn't get enough credit. i wish that in class he kept a tighter lid on things...we go off on unrelated tangents and get very worked up emotionally
Quality teaching, a little hard to keep everything in class straight because we cover so much, but he's very detailed and thorough. Good guy.
His class is really hard to follow sometimes. Too hard to follow his line of thinking. Smart, nice, helpful guy though.
i love ames, but his class is SO hard to follow!! i have NO idea what to take notes on, doesn't go in depth into ANYTHING, rushes over topics, gets off topic, rambles...so LOST.
Best teacher in the school! Best teacher I have ever had! Best teacher in the state? I wouldn't be surprised!!!
yea hes a pretty great teacher.. amazing with tech too!! Goo AMES!!
total man! luv Amez. he is the total best hist teacher. he is so nice to us and really likes us and runs the best room.
Best guy ever! I had Amezy for US and his was the BEST! Awesome debates *LOL!*
Ames is such a great teacher. He really knows the subject and he makes it fun to learn. He's also easy to talk to, whether about school or personal issues.
Ames is the man, his lectures are long, boring and put me to sleep every day. However he gave me an "A" for class participaion because i didnt bug anyone. :-D
He's the only tech director in our school... but he's an awesome one nonetheless.
Talks too much! Usually his lectures are pretty good, sometimes it is hard to stay awake though
