He is by far the best teacher i have ever had. He can see when you are confused about something and will ask you what you are confused about. and the same worksheets from 1970 got me a 5 on the ap

Great teacher...if you're in AP, be ready to get wrecked for awhile- he prepares you for the exam only if you do the work. Favors guys/athletes/whizzes/siblings of former students...adorable overall.

He's a great teacher. He knows what he's doing and you will pass the class, if you do the work. He's harsh, but you learn.

The only thing Shaffer cares about is the AP exam and he makes sure that he weeds out any students that are not certain 5s.

Shaff loves math more than life itself. He tries to be funny, but everyone laughs just because when he laughs he like snorts and drools all over the place

Anyone who gives him a 1 in helpfulness or clarity needs to go to Integrated Math, where you spend the entire year learning how to count to 10.

Very good teacher, but don't expect it to be easy. You'll learn a ton, but only if you cooperate. Other teachers may be easier, but you won't learn as much.

he'll make you work and long, but he almost guarantees a 5 on the AP test for all his students. that cannot be said about any other AP teacher.
