I love Mr. Manly, he is the most interesting person I've ever met. His class is a blast and his quirks make everything bland about chemistry enjoyable. If you're willig to learn Mr. Manly is more than willing to teach you.

An intelligent guy, but he really does demand perfection without taking the effort to explain material thoroughly. Hardest A I've ever had to get was Hon Chem, and I took tons of APs!!!

He wastes an extremely large amount of time by repeating everything the same way over and over so you are never getting any new information. He is too much in his own mind that he can barely teach.

He is a very hard teacher teaching a very hard class. the learning is sometimes high level for chemistry which makes it hard, and his discussions are not all that helpful, he leaves it up to you :(

Those who say he isn't a good teacher are the ones who decided not to do the work. You don't have to turn any homework in, but if you don't do it, you won't get an A. Take his class for a challenge.

He's a good teacher but has a really weird way of grading that makes him way tougher than all the other teachers. He demands that you have complete understanding and you keep up or else you will fail.

If you're willing to learn the material, he will help you as much as he can. Hard to get an A, but if you get one, you've earned it.

Manly is an excellent teacher; however, he expects a lot out of his students, and it is hard to earn an A. But you will come away with much more knowledge
