Well, I had Mr. Ayala last year, and I kinda know him well. He is a great teacher who really cares about his students yet he has many shortcomings at teaching. Yes, he has a Spanish accent, but so what? As an Asian dude, I could fully understand what he was talking about; I asked questions and he always gave me comprehensive responses. Also, he is really a nice guy, I remember the last time I went to his tutoring, I only saw 2 students from other classes there yet he stillgaveus a full listen.

i honestly think everyone is just trying to follow the crowd and say mr.ayala is a bad teacher. yes he has an accent but hes not the only one. if you actually go to class to learn and listen you wouldnt have a problem. to me he is a great teacher and when i was in his class i got 90s now i have zheng which is horrible and i dropped to 70s. so be grateful for him because he actually is a great teacher dont try to follow the crowd, think for yourself

Wastes time, hard to understand, not clear....too much of this appears over and over based on one teacher. Someone needs to wake up and pay attention to what so many complain about.

talks way too much about things that do not help explain the lesson. he isn't clear when he teaches, and he does not make any connections or anything that would help us understand the lesson... glad i dont have him anymore

I had Mr. Ayala and although he wasn't the easiest person to understand he was still a good teacher, i understood the work and i never understand science. As log as your respectful and ur willing to learn, he's willing to help.

Mr. Ayala is a great teacher... he's funny and nice but sometimes he talks about things that aren't related to chemistry then we run out of time and he'll rush through the lesson.

He needs to slow down when he teaches. Second, he is knowledgeable in chemistry, but has a difficult time explaining his point across.

He says a lot, but doesn't really know how to get his point across. The experiments are pretty awesome, and probably the only thing interesting in his class. - G-band student
