Great teacher, and very easy to pass his class. He gives out a lot of homework passes and extra credit, so just be sure to answer questions in class and do the work.

The smartest teacher I have ever had and the smartest personI have ever met. Nicest person you can imagine and can relate to you. Not much textbook use but he has so much knowledge and can teach you a ton. If you will have him or have had him you should consider yourself extremely lucky. This is the guy who is researching cancer and is teaching children at the same time. I learned so much from him and had the best time in his class. Best teacher ever!!!!!!!

Mr. Zem is a pretty good teacher compared to the other teachers I've had. He was pretty chill, and he's a really nice and friendly teacher, and he was pretty funny at times as well. He's really knowledgeable and I'm glad I was his student.

Great science teacher, so chill when it comes to homework. As long you are diligent with your work and don't turn in your work late constantly, focus on his tests, pay attention in class and you'll get an A++ in his class (Not kidding!) Cancer researcher, knows a lot in his field. Try not to fool around in class or he will try to send you to the counselor if you are being too obnoxious. Also, even if you get a small injury and he sees it, he'll surely send you to the nurse's office for anything.

Mr.Zem is an amazing teacher. He studies so many subjects along with teaching the students magnificently. He is a cancer researcher and knows his information. He knows what he's teaching and will answer any question descriptively. He manages to be the chillest, most calm teacher, but teaches the most information! He understands students' situations and is lenient with late or incomplete work. One of the best teachers I've ever had.

Awesome teacher. Worked with the guy who won a nobel prize. Black belt. Does Cancer Research. Really relaxed, easy going. Not a prik. Doesn't give tardys. Accepts late work. This guy is awesome. Really knowledgeable in his field. Can be a little confusing sometimes. Barely uses the textbook though. Will make sure he helps u if u dont understand something. The only thing i hate about him is he made the science fair project due the day we got back from spring break. Maybe i just procrastinated.

I really liked him because he was super nice. I didn't understand some of his assignments, but I really enjoyed his class. The science fair was especially fun, I got published! He seemed to be completely oblivious to some things, but he was still cooler than some of my other teachers.

I really love Mr.Zem! :) He is really knowledgeable about physics and chemistry... And he is super nice! Some kids take advantage of him and disobey his rules, but he deserves more than that. I can tell that he tries hard to teach us all he knows... He might not seem that smart, but I had him in 7th and 8th grade and believe me, he is. :)

Mr. Zem is the BEST teacher ever. Not only does he help students on homework and classwork, but also makes sure his students are doing well. Plus, he moves the deadline on assignments to work with our schedule. Best teacher you will ever have.

He is a good teacher. He gave me a great quote to me and my friend that inspired us to go on and continue to love Chemistry. My friend asked "Mr. Zem may we pack up? We only have 4 minutes left in class.". He replied "4 minutes of Chemistry is a lifetime." Truly inspirational.

He keeps the class interesting, adjusts to the students, and we tend to completely understand things that was completely scary mumbo- jumbo when we first walked in. He does tend to ramble a bit.
