Very manageable homework. Dude literally radiates knowledge. Very genuine but expects outside knowledge and independent study. Great anecdotes and a hilarious personality will complete your physics or chemistry experience. Learning is very unique in his class, you literally won't realize how much you learn until you look back at everything you've done. Expect MANY labs. Would recommend 10000x if you are genuine about learning and are somewhat good at the subject to begin with. ~ SA Anon
Despite the above ratings, Dwight was the best teacher to ever go near East. The experience of his class is so hard to describe in words, and I feel sorry for the students of East who no longer have to opportunity to take his class.
D squared is extremely knowledgeable. He is just a terrible teacher. The classroom environment that he creates is one of intense fear. In that fear, the majority of the students from my course took to cheating off of a test bank that was available online to do well on his impossible tests. Taking the moral high road killed my grade because the curve was set based off of the test scores of others. It is probably a good thing that he has left East-wounds can begin to heal.
Dwight Dutton is extremely knowledgeable about chemistry, and is an excellent teacher. He is different from other teachers in that if you get an A, you will know absolutely everything to know about AP Chemistry. You will, however, need a firm grasp on the fundamentals if you hope to succeed, so you'll need to review/redo Honors Chemistry on your own. Highly recommend for a hilarious and challenging course. But really it's just a redox.
He ruined me. Dwight Dutton ruined my chemistry experience. I usually receive A grades and did well in Honors Chemistry, however, his class was completely opposite. His ridiculous homework quizzes are the epitome of superfluous, and he has no regard for anyone's grades. His sarcastic and condescending tone during class is demoralizing. Lastly, he expects you to know everything from Honors Chemistry, and refers to the complex material as "review" or "refreshers". STEER CLEAR FROM HIS CLASS.
His class is honestly the bane of my existence. He is SUCH a hard teacher. It really is a huge shock if you come into his class and expect to get an A. He is sarcastic a lot, but you'll get used to it. He really makes you work "like you've never been worked before". He hates sophomores that's right, but if you show that you're a hard worker he'll treat you better. He shows you a bit of what the real world is like.
It is clear that Mr. Dutton knows a lot when it comes to chemistry. That being said I took physics with him. The problem with the class was that he spent too much time going on tangents and talking about chemistry, when he should have been spending more time explaining labs considering he basically just threw them at us by the dozens expecting us to know what to do. I wish I could have had chemistry with him, but when it comes to physics: my motivation to study physics in the future crumbled
He knows what he's talking about and makes class interesting for everyone, even if you're the one getting picked on. Plus, an average of 4 on the AP exam? That's pretty good, even at East!
he knows that he is talking about he just doesn't know how to get it across where we understand it. The only way i've survived in that class is by my friends and google. He is very smart he just can
He has no idea how to teach!!!!Dosn't help anyone and can sometimes be very rude and sarcastic.... Advise to future students -always do the worksheets and dont loose you chem. refrence table good luck
AP Chem may be hard, but DDutts is an amazing teacher. You might get tired of practice problems, but Mr. Dutton knows what he's doing. Plus, he's hilarious.
I honestly don't understand why Mr. Dutton has such a bad reputation. He genuinely cares about his students and is witty, a good teacher, and wants to help students. He also writes awesome recommend
Tough class, I learned a ton from it; about chemistry and life. Be ready to learn on your own, because he's looking to prepare you for college. Very helpful and funny. fFarewell ULTIMATE SLAYER!
Funny, smart, a little sadistic, will make fun of you. I've learned that unless he's in a good mood or you have something meaningful to say, don't say anything. Does not appreciate sleeping in class.
Gonna miss AP Chem next year so much. I finished it a better person than I was before, and it's just thanks to this guy. Doesn't hurt that I learned a crapload of stuff, either.
Dude is a boss. He'll answer any question, no matter how dumb, and really makes you learn stuff without babysitting you. AP Chem is the best class I've ever taken.
I have no idea why he's so disliked. Our class camps out in 201 for lunch; he's witty and funny and his door is always open for questions. If he expects a lot, it's because you're taking AP Chemistry.
This teacher makes me frustrated. He doesn't teach well and all he says comes straight from the book, like almost exactly. He doesnt make any sense, so learning from the book is easier... Also, he tak
He expects you to know chemistry beforehand, so if you don't, you'll have to play super fast catch up. He can be funny sometimes but usually when making fun of a student.
Mr. Dutton brings good food to advocacy and before the AP Test. He is a pretty cool and funny person but probably not the best teacher. Sometimes he makes no sense. But if you're sincere he likes you.
mr. dutton is not only the worst teacher ive ever had, he is a horrible person! switch out of his class if you can! no respect for students-wont even look you in the eye when your talking to him.
I took his summer school chemistry class and I didn't enjoy a bit. my AP Chemistry class was easier than trying to meet his random grading policy.
He's one of those teachers that you should probably avoid at all costs. He doesn't take questions, unless you're one of the few students that he likes, and the ones he likes never even need the help.
If you cant get on the internet every night (or your printer doesn't) work, consider dropping this class! He's a bit critical of his students, and in my experience, isn't very open or helpful.
Awesome teacher is the man. Knjows what he is teaching, and is also extremly funny.
Mr. Dutton is an extremely smart, and funny teacher. Granted he doesn't explain things well, but he also doesn't take slackers and whiners who think the teacher should give them the answer to work.
Very easy, a nice guy, albiet preachy. He is really funny and all around a kind soul.
