Mr. Haywood is really really helpful when you go to ask him for help during tutorial or class! He really takes his time to try to explain everything to me, and it really helps me understand physics. He's also extremely funny, and that makes it really easy to pay attention in class (along with his awesome English accent). Definitely one of my favorite teachers!

Yes, he doesn't lecture much, but the way he structured the class made physics so easy to understand.

He's funny and knows what he's teaching and doing. He's willing to help you only if you ask. His class (i had him for physics honors) is almost self-taught. Most days, he goes over the hw (a lot of us kind of bs-ed the hw) and then we have the rest of the class to do hw or any classwork.

wonderful teacher. Had him for AP chem, his lectures were sooo much easier to understand than the book was.

He's a funny guy. However, the class structure is not. Rarely do we hear him lecturing in Physics. All we do is sit in class and do worksheets. Can be very boring unless you sit next to people that you know. You can chat in class for the entire time and he would not care. Maybe too relaxed to be an EFFICIENT teacher.

Mr. Haywood is a very interesting person, and he knows what he's talking about, but his explanations of physics are very, very confusing to me. But I'm doing okay because I get my dad to help me.

Good teacher. teaches well. If someone complains he doesn't teach well, it just means they didn't bother to actually READ the chapter & the notes he gives out.

British, likes the pixies, like Pink Floyd, was a drummer for a band, and he teaches. Well, he doesn't teach too much but he teaches enough to get by if you study (or if you don't, like me, its all good). Great teacher.

For all of you saying he doesn't teach, that's an unfair claim because this is AP CHEM, and Haywood assumes we have prior skills and knowledge from honors chem. That's just his teaching style and I find it to be just dandy!

Hes very nice, and funny at times, but i simply cannot understand waht he teaches and his class is extremely boring. if you feel confident that you can study by youself, i highly reccoment it. if not, i dont reccoment his ap class

My favourite science teacher. He is unfairly blamed by many pupils for their own inadequacies in science. He taught us everything many pupils claim he didn't.
