Mr. Kushi is the most friendly teacher I've ever been under. He clearly loves what he teaches and never yells at students or grows frustrated with them. He gives nothing but encouragement as long as you show effort. The notes are easily clarified, but can get lengthy at times and are sometimes crammed at the last minute. If you pay attention and do what you're supposed to, it should be easy. However, you often feel overwhelmed by the daily homework and long projects often worth nothing.

Mr. Kushi, while tries so very hard for the future of his students, simultaneously crushes them with large, quite arguably excessive amounts of homework (multiple hours). His tests are brutally hard, and he assigns copious amounts of projects. The workload is definitely comparable to that of a college course.

Mr. Kushi is above average compared to all of the teachers in Torrance High. However, he does lack in some areas. He usually rushes the class and waste time in having his students do white board problems. This usually just takes away time from the class and does not really contribute too much on the progression of a student's learning. I believe he can teach better but he should really go in a slower pace and should assign less homework. You know what they say "Quality is better than Quantity".

One of the best teachers in THS. The only reason he is staying in THS is the girl's golf team; if our golf team sucked, he wouldn't be teaching in THS. He has the skills to teach at a way better schoo

Mr. Kushi's class is difficult, but that's mainly because calculus as a subject is difficult on it's own. He does what he can to simplify it, and his tests might be hard, but he's a great teacher. He

Pay attention and do the (large) amount of work, and his class isn't hard to pass. He gives up his evenings to tutor kids. Yeah he takes a bit of time to cover the material but I'm enjoying math for the first time in my life.

His class does require students to do a lot of work. But he puts a lot of effort into making sure that everyone understands the concepts. He even gives up his evenings to come to school and tutors!

I had Mr. Kushi many years ago and I despised his class because I did not understand geometry. However, he spent countless hours tutoring me until I understood. He's a challenging, but great teacher.
