This guy assigns way too much pointless work. He teaches fine. The concepts aren't too hard to learn. He's pretty annoying though, and as I said, he assigns so much pointless busy work that he actually thinks is helpful. The class is fine, the labs are hell.

Literally the most painful year of my entire life. The worst class I have ever taken and easily one of the hardest. Sophomore Honors Chemistry will cause you pain and suffering. If the class doesn't...then his presence will

At first he seems like he would be a great teacher, but once you get to know him you begin to think otherwise. He for some reason the inability to help kids work through problems. He just yells at them. You end up teaching most of the class to yourself, but he said that is to be expected, and the tests are relatively easy if you can figure out how to read the textbook and teach yourself.

His explanations are really clear and he has good examples so I can understand the chem. Review sessions are helpful. Tests are hard, but fair.

I have never in my life hated a class more than this one. He expects you to pretty much teach yourself chemistry by just giving out handouts and telling you to read the textbook, only decides to teach after everyone fails a test. 0/10

People complain about him often... Just do the work and you'll be fine. He is a very smart man with a lot of knowledge in his fields. Do what he tells you and you won't have a problem! He can be pretty nitpicky though. He gives you assignments with minimal directions on what you're supposed to do and gets mad when it isn't exactly the way he wants it to be.

The man is great. He is not easy, he wont take junk, and he wont hold back on giving it to you. The class is relativity easy if you do what Motsay says and nothing otherwise. Work linearly effects grades in this class.

Never gave me a direction to help. He always carried a grudge of some kind, and has favorites. Not his favorite, you're doomed.

Not a terrible teacher, but in class he barely scatches the surface of what you need to know for the tests. Can't pass without teaching yourself a lot.
