Good teacher. He doesn't care about the quality of homework, but his in class notes will teach you almost everything. Just pay attention in class and you will be prepared for the AP Calculus test.

As long as you are capable of writing scribbles on paper and putting all the problem numbers he assigns on them, there is no reason you cannot get full homework credit(unless you're Jay "Jay, your bookwork looks kinda weak. You lose points" (every day)). Melosh teaches really well and more slowly than some teachers like Howell, so he is more understandable than most. He is really quiet and can be hard to hear at times, but he is humorous and can make jokes and be joked about in class.

He's a really good teacher so long as you pay attention to him in class and take down all your notes and wups. He is extremely nice and a soft person and people really don't give him the respect that he deserves. If you ask questions in his class and be respectful to him when he is teaching he will appreciate your respect towards him and will help you for whatever help you need. He is very knowledgeable and knows his subject very well so if you don't understand something just ask him.

Not a bad teacher if you listen during his notes/wups and stuff. But I feel that he should express himself more and have an interaction with his students. Other than that he can be funny and make you feel perfecto!

Mr. Melosh is a strange teacher. He has a lot of weird habits and is very soft-spoken, However, he is a REALLY kind, reasonable teacher. His class (Algebra 2/Trig.) is a bit boring but if you follow his instructions and put in fairly good effort you should not find it hard to ace everything. Too many people are really disrespectful to him because he is so easygoing and won't get mad at you. PLEASE don't be rude to him; he's so sweet and innocent.

He's super nice and smart. I just wish we all knew him better; I always wonder what he does when he's not teaching. The first day of school (Geometry Honors) with him is a diagnostic test, then the second day gets right into the notes, quizzes, tests, and homework. Then it's like that for the whole year. When people direct their anger at him, it's mostly because they are upset with their test score. Just pay attention and don't cheat folks. Ask him questions; he's very smart. Perfecto!

Mr. Melosh is a very great teacher. His class may seem monotonous but why would you take honors Geometry if you weren't prepared for that? He explains very well and gives many explanations. Great teacher to have!

Whenever you make a mistake, remember to say WUPS! Whenever you see him, say perfecto! 10/5 would learn again. If you are not doing well in this class, you probably are not paying enough attention in class.

Well my name is Mustafa Omar Haider. I absolutely love this teacher. He teaches well and he is very funny! He has helped me in calculus a lot. Learning from him is an honor in my life. Because of my hard work in his class, I practically ace every single one of his test and quizzes. Although I will not miss many things in this school when I graduate, he will surely be one that I will miss!

Mr. melosh can literally make u fall asleep in class because of hi monotonous voice and how softly he speaks. However if u pay attention his notes are great for Geometry honors. His tests are logically hard for an honors class. Overall, he's an average teacher.

He is a great teacher, though yes I admit his class is monotonous. But it's math, and that's how it's supposed to be taught. If you pay attention it's not that boring.
