He is extremely condescending when he talks to students, and he is cynical about the motives of whatever students do...

Too much cheating went on in class, but it wasn't his fault. He really made me love chemistry. Fair guy all-around.

know those teachers who really want you to do well? Hurowitz is not one of them. He tests you with questions you've never seen, and always tries to fail you!

He has a tendency for digressions and isnt the best at teaching, but is an awesome guy and really knows his stuff.

He is very funny but he sometimes drifts off to tell us random stories from his past. Too bad he doesn't ask us about that, we'll all get a 100...

Class is a breeze and he's funny. People who don't like him are people who aren't smart enough to understand what's going on

He is a hard teacher but when you get used to it, it gets easier, go to J-Blocks there, there for a reason!

His class is possibly the funniest class ever (not that he means it to be) because he will pick on kids and say "Stop asking questions" IT'S HILARIOUS

One-on-one, he's great at explaining and really nice. I think he's a really respectable guy, but a MUCH better honors teacher than Curric. 1. He's actually FUN!

his honors class is tough, but he's willing to help his students out. although, he does get annoyed when its obvious that people arent paying attention.

He is so easy. All you have to do is wrestle. I have B's in his class and I don't even know where my text book is. Will explain stuff until EVERYONE gets it.

Homework is rare and the test can be manageable at times, but his teaching style can often lead to the derogatory statement of If I’m attracted to you...
