I have Mr. Pak this year for Math 2+ and I don't know what all this fuss is about him not being a great teacher. He teaches very well, and has helped me whenever i needed him to. At least he's better than the other Math 2+ teachers, based on what I've heard. AWESOME TEACHER

i have math 2 plus H and his class is really easy because there are multiple choices on the test but he doesn't really teach you that well and u need to learn some info by your own... other than that there are lots of extra credit and for sure you will get a good grade in his class. but we seldom have projects or group discussions

This is a pure genuine response and take my words for it. Mr.Pak will be teaching hard in the first semester but will be lazy at the second. You really have to self-study or transfer out. However, in my condition of choosing algebra 2 teahers in year 2013-2014, I would choose him. The other teachers were Gilbert and another one. I use to have Gilbert and she didn't teach but talked of her childhood. The other teacher (from friend's perspective) spent half the class looking over and checking HW.

He's kinda really bad at teaching. He doesn't know how to teach. You won't get most of the material unless you self study. Advice: Transfer out?

Okay, I really don't know what to say about Pak. He really doesn't ever seem to be prepared when teaching, needs to frequently spend countless minutes (which quickly turn to accumulative hours of wasted class time, really) pondering on how to do a problem while he's teaching, and he blatantly asks the class with legit cluelessness on how to do that problem, or what he did wrong when he decides to "give up." When no one knows, he just skips it. GL when it appears on the test. -.-"

80% of the time he has absolutely no idea what he's doing, as proven evident by his teaching methods. He admits that his class average test scores are much lower than those of other math teachers. When he doesn't know how to teach a problem, he just skips it, or claims it's impossible when other math teachers have proven otherwise. Many problems in the openers/tests occasionally are NOT relevant to what was "taught." To pass the class, ignore the teacher and study the book. He fails.

He can't teach.doesn't even know what he's doing half the time.. He always makes mistakes. Our class work is our homework. He never explains anything. and he assumes that everyone knows whats going on in the class.

He's cool and class is fun [but quiet], however it's hard to understand the notes sometimes. Tests are easy, because it comes directly from the review, but not reinforced as much. Still great

VERY Lenient teacher and a VERY chill class. Often 'lays down the law', students ignore the rule, and then he laughs and stops enforcing things like eating in class, texting, etc. Very laid back.

Mr. Pak! He's such a nice teacher, and he's funny too. He always curves the tests, and gives us extra credit all the time! He even let me become Potty Patrol and monitor restroom usage for stamps! (:

He honestly asks the kids for help when he is stuck on notes. He can't teach I respect him but he just cannot teach math. I am a good student who only gets A's and B's but this guy is honestly hard to learn from.

Either Trig/MA is easy in general since it's a non-AP class or he makes the class easy, but whatever the case, he didn't really prepare us well for AP Calculus AB.
