People often find his teaching style demeaning, and this is mainly due to many student's tendency to not do his HW or sleep in class. He taught above and beyond what was needed for the course for his Calc AB class, such as partial integrals, integrals by parts, etc. He taught enough so that his AB students were able to ace the BC exam as well, just not covering series. And here I am, sitting in Multivariable in college!
Usoroh is definitely one of the teachers that takes time getting used to. Many people who hate on him are generally those who don't pay attention, sleep, or not do HW. If he catches one of these people, he will hate them, especially those who repeat.
His tests are honestly just homework with different numbers, and he is pretty easy. He might not be clear at times, it was sufficient enough to learn precalc easily.
He knows his stuff, just don't argue with him unless he likes you.
Very demeaning when you are asking him questions or if you make a mistake on the board. Nearly impossible to talk to if you have a question about a test or homework or class in general. Yells a lot and made precalculus very painful and stressful.
Extremely difficult to get along with. I'd recommend steering clear of him entirely, keeping to yourself, and teaching yourself the material in preparation for exams. I can only hope some of the misery he's inflicted on others comes back to haunt him.
I must begin by saying that many of the comments made by other people are untrue. Usoroh's teaching and grading is as fair as possible. Lessons are organized in the traditional lecture format and, through days of drills, confusing topics eventually become clear. Tests require understanding of the material, but similar questions are explained in lessons. Sufficient effort will allow anyone to succeed in Usoroh's class.
Underrated. As a teacher, he's great. His accent may be a bit derp, but once you get used to it, you're good. And his tests aren't as bad as lot of other teachers'.
When he says "theres a 50% chance you'll have a test tomorrow" you know theres something wrong. He obviously doesn't practice what he preaches. He tells students how important it is to do hw but he do
Everybody keeps telling me he's just difficult but not that much of a bad teacher. I don't see it.
I needed help with math pretty badly, but of course none was offered. If you're not good at math...
Yeah his english isn't too great, but honestly, you get used to it after like a week. His tests are pretty hard compared to other teachers, but he does curve your final grade to make up for it. Plus,
Not really that bad of a teacher. Tests are the same as what you do in class and your report card average is higher than your test average
He's pretty cool and smart. He occasionally makes jokes. He teaches pretty decently, but sometimes he gives excessive homework. I think he's a fairly easy teacher. Just study a lot and participate.
I love this man. It's not fair how cruel the world is to him, because he is the greatest man to ever walk this earth and I am sorry for all the hating he receives everyday.
Ya'll gotta stop hating the man. His tetst are sort of hard, but he prepares you well for it. Don't fall asleep and do all the hw, participate and your guranteed a 93
he actually curves ur grade like 6 points. but you have to do all the hw, and be prepared and answer questions. actually a real nice guy.
I don't understand y everyone dislikes him. He's a great teacher, and his tests are fairly easy. Maybe he gets angry once in a while, but thats normal. He also curves ur grade a lot if you participate
Good teacher. Had a pleasant time in his class. Very lenient with grading. Tests were good as long as you did the homework/ paid attention in class.
Come on Usoroh's not that bad I got 88 on all his tests and a 100 on the final gave me a 99
you gotta try and put in your own effort, only way you'll do good
Teaches if you pay attention, gives longer hws then most other teachers, has been known to give VERY long tests. Blaze his tests, no time to fix errors. -A student who is REALLY good at math.
This guy is so easy I had him for calculus and his tests were like the regents
He is very rough, and unforgiving. Instead of explaining something thoroughly he just shoves it down your throat and moves on. He is also unfriendly.
Ugh, the WORST math teacher I've ever had. Gives 2-3 hours of HW a night and his tests are SUPER long and hard. Condescending, mean to students, just transfer out if you can. He does curve a bit,t hou
He goes waaaaay too fast and gives an insane amount of homework. His tests are also REALLY long.
He's a really good teacher. Fast paced and explains very well. Just do all his homework no matter what. Overprepared us for the final which i got a 100 on.
Awesome jokes. Just make sure you get him any other year except for freshman year and it will be awesome.
a lot of hw. seriously and marks yu down everytime yu dont have it. has favorites. teachers pretty well. prepares yu for the finals a lot when yu need it. curves for ppl who rlly need it
He has the ability to be a good teacher if only he weren't so smug/demanding most of the time. His moderate accent and apparent refusal to explain anything thoroughly makes everything so much worse.
Unless math comes naturally to you, you'll need a regular tutor to do better than a 90 in pre-cal. But he inflates grades A LOT (to 80s range), cause otherwise most people would fail.
he always makes mistakes in class but he does curves grades up but he doesnt really teach, if u have him study from the textbooks because asking him wont help at all
he can be a tough teacher, but he definitely makes an effort and you'll learn a lot if math is your thing. (i took calculus AB with him as a junior in the fall of '03)
He's tough, but he's one of the best math teachers in stuy if you pay attention. You just have to have some effort in the class and you'll do well. If you don't care, obviously you wouldn't like him.
He's a very good teacher if you actually try to learn. If you act like you don't care, he will constantly call on you for answers.
Tough, but probably one of the best math teachers in the school. Knows his stuff and knows how to explain it so clearly. But if you dont try hard, dont expect a good grade.
I dislike him extremely because he does NOT REVIEW HOMEWORK and does NOT even REVIEW TESTS or QUIZZES. He teaches things, and then expects you to know it that very same day.
I actually avoided eye contact with this guy for fear of being picked on. His tests are extremely long and hard, a little too much homework but you'll really be prepared for the final exam.
Ask the wrong question or answer wrong, and he will stare you down and hate you for the rest of the term. RICIDULOUS amount of homework.
actually told me that i am going to fail math AND physics on the 2nd day of school (and i hate to say it, but he was right)
He's a pretty harsh grader on tests and a perfectionist, so everything has to go exactly a certain way. You do learn from him, but be careful on tests, raise hand often, and be polite or else he'll act like he hates you...
hes so harddddddd hes scary too omgod he takes off a lot of points on test for little minor errors
he's not too bad. easy hw, easy tests, and he yells at people that sleep(funny). only bad thing is that he makes hundreds of mistakes like thinking the letter a is the letter b.
HE doesn't know my name, It was justin, john, william and then michael. now he thinks im john again.
Pretty cool guy but really strict, especially about cell phones, don't get caught with one or else he will take it away! Also has an accent that is pretty hard to follow but you get used to it. Can give a lot of hw some days.
k, this is the deal on this guy. impossible accent. lots of HW- i recommend you do it. tests are hard but always fair. study for them. you will learn lots. i learned half the stuff from precal in his MQ4.
He's not bad at all! He's actaully one fo the best teachers. If you pay attention, and aren't one of those people who just focus on his accent, you'll do fine! He explains really well!
One of the best math teachers, hard to hear at first but really a great teacher, if you TRY
gets angry at you if you don't understand something. if he chooses you to answer a homework question that you couldn't figure out, he considers the entire homework not done. a genius, but none of it's being passed on to me.
He puts problems on bord and gives you under second be4 asking for answer. Doesn't explain things criticizes u for asking q's and makes u take tests after uve been absent 3 days.
takes too much pleasure in giving impossible amounts of work.
SADIST. i wouldnt mind math so much if he wasnt so cruel towards students when they ask questions. He'll IGNORE you if u really dont understand sumthing and keep asking about it.
He really isn't bad at all.. if you study you'll do well..and he cant help his accent...its actually interesting to losten to him...but hes a good teacher
Terrible teacher. I had to go to math tutoring every week. Tests are impossible. However, he gave me an okay grade.
though it might be hard to understand him in the beginning, he's an awesome teacher. he knows what he's doing and he's a decent grader!
He's awesome at what he does, if only more than person in each year could understand what he says. But if you are the chosen one you'll ace math for the rest of your stuy career
Very bad teacher. Nobody can understand a word he says. His handouts are a waste of paper, nobody can understand them either because they cannot read his writing.
This teacher goes so far below the bounds of reason, clarity, explanation, and overall acceptability that I'm at a loss for words to describe him.
Gives difficult tests, but i think he curves the final grades. Study and youll do alright.
he doesn't know anybody's name and he gets really happy whenever he teaches something complicated. just do the review sheets he hands out and you'll do a lot better on tests.
he thinks he knows everything but when he's wrong and i think that he notices he's wrong, he just switches the topic.. He is very hard to understand also!!!!
pretty decent once you get over the accent.. still unclear at times, but you do learn some things in his class... hw's and tests kinda hard though
Seems like an okay guy who gives good notes , however he gives some of the longest and most difficult tests, avoid him if u want someone ez
he acts so proud when he knows an answer we don't. its like, get a grip, you SHOULD know more than a bunch of ninth graders
tests are too long, gives hw expecting you to know everything, doesn't teach very well
I got used to the accent, and he actually gave really good notes, not that they helped me on his impossible tests.
Jeeps! I had him for tutoring once and he spat ALL over me...it was NASTY!
his tests are very LONG. u have no time to check it over.otherwise, if u study really hard,it's ok. he's nice though
Though he's hard to understand, his tests don't seem to be hard. His Precal homework sucks though.
