Gavin is the most intelligent human I have ever met, and he is the Lebron James of teachers (he even cracks in the 4th quarter). We are taking him to the Porkopolis in the summer to obtain more historical knowledge about our four-fathers and to obtain several loads of double pork sandwiches that he talks about every day. I just want to call him dad.

First tip: go to the website for the textbook, go to the outlined noted for each chapter, and copy and paste them into a word file. Congratulations, I've just done 80% of your homework for you. If you pay attention and take diligent notes, a you should be able to get at least a 4 on the AP exam. If you want to avoid being picked on (it's not hateful or anything by the way), then I suggest volunteering to answer a question once or twice a day, and never volunteer any personal information.

I'm not sure about his other classes, but he is the best AP U.S History teacher I know. His teaching is primarily lecture style, but we will spend days on certain topics to make sure students fully understand. All the homework he gives is worth it, and he understands if you have to hand things in late. I'll never forget what we learn in this class, and I feel so much more knowledgeable after every lecture. Mr. Kalner is also just a great man- so I encourage you to talk to him in your free time.

Kalner is an amazing teacher and by far my favorite this year. It's my first time in AP history as he has been nothing but helpful. He has extra help for everything, even essays. My essay grade went from 11/20 to 18/20 when graded on a college level in a matter of about 2 months. He gives a lot of work, but he is funny and never has a problem helping with it. His entire demeanor just brightens my day.

Mr. Kalner is a great teacher but he teaches a hard class. He gives a lot of work which makes his class difficult but he is definitely helpful and clear in his teaching. Overall he's good.
