A pretty cool guy to talk to, who has no idea how to be a teacher. He certainly knows what he is talking about. He is convinced he gives the least homework of any mathematics teacher at THS, but gives tons. His class is going to be hard if you don't try. He doesn't play favorites, though. Regardless of whether or not your a horrible, or lazy student, he will still treat you the same. He is genuinely concerned for all of his students, but is one of the least helpful teachers I've had.

He is a terrible math teacher. It comes to the point where I have to ask for help from other student (who are being taught by a different teacher, but same math level as me). I get more help from them than from him.

He has not taught me one thing as I have had to learn it from other classmates. he gives homework and classwork problems on the level of a kindergarten drop out, but gives tests that could only be completed by a doctor of mathematics from cal-tech. He fails to answer the simplest questions, responding angry and annoyed to questions that could be avoided if he had any teaching ability, and manages to consistently messes up on everything he does on a level only matched by Lanham.

I think Tachibana has a bad rap. I like how his class works. He collects the homework and grades it fairly. He gets into the notes right after collecting the homework which I like so I have time to finish my homework. Just his notes are confusing because you spend more time writing than listening to what he's saying, but you can always ask questions. He does get a bit annoyed some times though. After the notes he does the hard questions on the HW from the previous night. BTW he gives tons of HW!

He wasn't very polite to all students especially the boys; he treated girls with respect while the boys got nothing. He was always picky about the way students did notes and homework. seemed inpatient

I learned nothing in this class, and was unfortunate enough to get him twice. He has no patience with students, which causes the students to lose their patience and respect for him.

Well, he's below average. I don't think he is the worst teacher as many have mentioned. His class is easy, but he really sucks at teaching.

He's not that hard, but you have to make sure you get help from another teacher because he is VERY bad at answering questions. (Calc.)
