He doesn't explain some things that great because of his accent but he is a GREAT teacher. He answers any question you might have and gives great review sheets and packets to help you get a good grade on the next test.

He provides useful questions about a particular topic in which he compiles all questions from previous physics exams pertaining to the topic. Very funny, dislikes students with averages below 80.

he's not that bad a teacher. all the problems on the tests and quizzes were basically repeats from the hw and worksheets he handed out. so if you're not gonna study, obviously you're gonna fail. =P

He pretty much ignores you if he doesn't feel like answering at the moment... It's not his accent, it's how long he spends on a simple topic.
