The style he teaches in is boring, albeit helpful. Amazing, funny, guy that has a great personality. Great teaching ability, and has so much knowledge in that brain of his. His tests are extremely difficult however, so make sure you study

He is one of the nicest teachers you'll have and extremely helpful when you have questions. His class is pretty tough, though - exams especially (I had him for geometry).

Had him for study hall and he was hilarious and fun. We were kinda friends that year. He is really fun to see in the hall and he has extra help every day which is a pretty awesome thing to do. He's helpful if you ask a question.

He is the best teacher in the world and one of the nicest people I've ever met. I can to his class last year from a foreign country, and had no knowledge of mathematical terms, and he helped me so much throughout the year and during finals. I could not stress enough how much I admireand appreciate him. Totally recommend him as a teacher!

Stan is literally the best teacher ever. He is very easy to talk to if you have questions/difficulty and is always a lot of fun. His tests are a little hard sometimes but nothing unmanageable. Stan is the man.

He is my son's favorite math teacher. His math grade really improved due to Mr. Hanscom's teaching talent. My son has math anxiety which hasn't been addressed by the school district since third grade. The man is a miracle worker. Consider yourself blessed if you child has Mr. Hanscom.

He is hands down the best math teacher i have had so far. I Had him 2 years in a row and I liked him even more after my second year with him. He doesnt overwhelm you with work, and also forms a friendly personal relationship with his students. He gives fair tests and has a creative way of teaching. Sometimes we would have grading disputes, but thats mostly the fault of the course (geometry... many faults and debatable material...). Good Bye Mr. Hansom, I will really miss you!
