Such an unhelpful teacher for a class with students who have no previous knowledge at all.
But he DOES have a chill side. Sometimes he'll begin class by playing Doom, watching Homestar Runner, or revealing NSFW searches in his Google toolbar.
One of the worst teachers I have ever had. Including my college years. He was so bi-poler. One minute he would be everyones best friend, making jokes about surfing bird or family guy. Then the next he would being yelling at yes. Cursing and all. I am glad he was fired. He is a smart guy....but a bad, bad teacher.
Mr. Yilk knew what it was he was doing, but he didn't know how to teach it. More often than not he'd just throw the program on the board and expect us to figure out what we needed to do. He was also entirely too strict, considering his inability to teach.
I personally think that Python and Java could have been much more easier... if it were not for Todd Yilk. I agree with most of the other ratings. Mr. Yilk needs to change his attitude.
What Todd Yilk lacks in competence he also lacks in friendliness.
