O'leary is the best teacher you can get. He is a great teacher and makes the class very fun to be in. However, the class is very hard. Do not switch out but in order to get a good grade you need to pay attention in class and do all of the work.

His class and tests are insanely hard, especially if you're in Calc BC, but he explains everything so well! He is most definitely a very efficient and likable person, he makes his quizzes and tests quite difficult but that makes his final exams seem so easy!! Plus he will give at least 1/3 points back, depending on the class average, so typically his curves are pretty big for each quiz and test. Overall one of the greatest teachers you will ever meet and is a very friendly person!

Mr. O'Leary is by far the best teacher I've had throughout my years in Novi schools. He is very efficent and clear when doing notes and also finds time to give you in-class time to work on the homework. He is also very approachable so if you are confused on anything he can give you 1 on 1 help. Also a very a chill teacher that lets you go on your phone in-class which was cool especially later on in the semester when I was comfortable with my grade.

Had him for Honors Geometry. Great teacher. Knows his stuff real well, and can clearly explain things in less than 15 minutes, which is pretty hard for any teacher to do. His tests are somewhat difficult, but he gives you 1/3 of your points back (and maybe a problem or two), so you could get a 56 on a test and get a 75. Also, he's a pretty chill teacher. You could be on your phone during a test and he wouldn't care. Highly recommend this guy.

His calc BC class is the hardest class you can take at Novi, and for good reason. Even though his class is insane hard, this guy is a great teacher who is very thorough in his explanations and doesn't hesitate to help you out. He brings a new meaning to college prep.

The guy is an absolute genius, but if you're in his BC class, you HAVE to pay attention (this was my first C on a report card). Pay attention in class, do the homework, ask him if you have questions, and you will do will.

He only cares about students who are the top students or an athlete he favors. He is rude otherwise even if you are an above average student. Maybe he should familiarize himself with the amazing 99%, not just the 1%.

I am taking AP calc BC as a second semester senior. One thing I have realized in high school is that its not about the grade its about learning and thats what he does-- teaches you. I know that I'll be ready for math in college,so im glad im took it

O'Leary is the best math teacher by far! He's funny and explains things so well. If I would have had any other honors geometry teacher, I would have failed. He really knows what he's telking about and he pushes you to be great. Whenever you need help in math, hes the guy to go to. :)

I was a little bit dissappointed with how unorganized he was. I was often confused and it was sometimes difficult to get help. Maybe geometry just isnt my thing.
