He seems like a really cool guy honestly, but he's probably one of the worst teachers I've ever had. It doesn't matter how hard you try to get along with him, he's completely unreasonable. Expects immaculate work on things he doesn't explain too well. Don't expect any leniency from him if you're male. He rants too long about hard work and success during lessons. He's the type of person who judges you on the first day and treats you accordingly. Would never recommend his class.
Everyone keeps complaining about Mr. Lai, however what people dont understand is how easy his class is. although he is a but picky about how you do the math work, he actually does explain how to do the problems. Most of his quizzes are really easy and most his test questions are online. Trust me hes an easy teacher as long as your willing to put in some work.
P.S. You always want to be a "high acheiver" LOL
-Lectures slowly, clearly, and logically
He explained the Ideal Gas Law from a logical perspective instead of having students just memorize "this increases when that decreases."
-favors "high-achieving" students
-unreasonable rules (ex. you can't lean your head on the desk)
All in all, he's not the best teacher at keppel but also not the worst. If I was forced to retake chemistry in Keppel, I wouldn't mind retaking his class. All that matters is that he teaches.
He is a very good teacher. He is very forgiving. When I don't understand something he takes the time to teach me.
Doesn't know how to teach and should be fired soon as possible
You're gonna have to teach yourself to get an A in this class. Also, he expects you to have a computer with Internet at home, or you'll be making a lot of trips to the library just to get assignments.
He just rants about random stuff. His study guides don't make sense and he just tells you to look on his webpage everyday. Nothing in his lectures pertains to chemistry at all.
very lenient impossible to fail his class he's funny and he has a funny accent take his class; he is the easiest
Lectures confusingly, but is very helpful. Tries to be easy and has unreasonable rules.....
Mr. Lai teaches so well. Without his help, I would not have gotten the concept of chemistry. =D Thanks Mr. Lai! You will be blessed.
Mr.Lai is a great teacher if you know how to SHD, I see asian girls around his room, they seem to be lining up during lunch, can anyone explain why? I might get in line and see what happens on tuesday
Doesn't really teach, all he does is "USE LOGICAL THINKING" "CLICK SAVE" what the...?
He is a bad teacher! Doesn't know how to teach...and you learn nothing in his class...you'll forget after a few months.
he is very very odd. I hate him he ck my work and i get no pts. Test are hard quizz is ok. he asume u know how covert stuff but overall he doesnt reall teaches. i wish he would
If you talk to him enough, he'll start throwing you a bone(extra credit)His class was a bit hard, but to me, chemistry is usually hard. If the class overall does bad, he'll start a lot of extra credit
Funny teacher, Cool guy. barely passed his class though.
he is very easy.if u want to learn, don't take him,u wont be prepared, especially for AP chem.his system for people who wants to learn wont learn. i got A, but
