Timothy Van Wey

Chemistry Teacher at Andover High School

12/17/13 - He doesn't really teach stuff in class, so you kind of have to teach yourself, but he is really funny and I think he's a nice person. Usually if you ask him a question (one on one) then he will answer it well and help you to understand it (you HAVE to ask him if you don't get it right away or he won't teach it).

10/07/13 - He's overall an amazing and hilarious guy but gets distracted easily. I had to teach myself practically by reading the textbook. His tests are easy, but most material on tests is on math, not concept, so you know what's on his tests. He spends 95% of our class time off topic looking up Hitler videos or African Honey Badgers, and 5% actually teaching. He will explain if you ask him to, but you could replace him with a textbook. If you intend to take AP chem, have fun teaching yourself chemistry

10/05/11 - Its easy to see that Van Wey knows alot about the subjects he is teaching.He is always willing to stay after school to help kids with homework or explain labs. However, I struggled in his class because he was often off topic or distracted. I ended up learning chemistry from youtube and other students. Overall though, he's a great guy with a likeable personality and a good sense of humor, and some kids really benefit from his teaching style, but others (like me) might end up teaching themselves Show More Show Less

08/26/11 - Overall amazing person awful teacher. His class is more like a study and as long as you are a good person you can do anything in the class. But if you don't get something and don't have a one on one and talk to him, you're screwed. Great class favorite teacher Show More Show Less
