Great teacher! I have Regular US History and I love it! Your experience with him depends on the class you take, Regular US History or AP US History. I genuinely enjoy the class and he makes the lectures really fun to listen to & I'm saying this as someone who actually didn't like his World History class, last year. He makes history fun and interesting! But if you take APUSH, I've heard it's really stressful, mainly because of the time you spend reading and writing notes, which take hours.

Hilarious, he teaches in a very unique way and he loves to tease his own students. He goes over the answers to the test right before he gives the test. Just read the book and take notes and you get an A in the class.

Really funny and friendly teacher. But he doesn't seem to use his free time wisely. Whenever we have a day without a test/quiz/essay, he uses that time to talk about only a particular topic and not the entire chapter we are on. Often talks about irrelevant material and you need to study mostly by yourself.

Funny teacher. He doesn't teach well during class. His powerpoints are almost useless for the tests. You have to read the book, take notes to do well.

Mr. Irvine is such a great teacher. He is very understanding and helpful - ask if you need help with the content. Do the reading (APUSH) and take good notes; he's also a great cook!

Don't expect APUSH to be easy. You will not do well if you try to get out of doing the assigned reading. That said, Irvine's a great guy and is always there to explain things or give extra advice.
