Great teacher! If you're up for a challenge you'll really enjoy the class. In a good mood; even when the football team loses! DO YOUR HOMEWORK and you will do well on the tests; he goes over ANY homew

class for calculus is mostly just going over hw, then 5-10 minutes of teaching. good at simplifying concepts and preparing for the ap exam. His tests are straightforward but you need to study for them

he explains everything really clearly and will answer any questions you have about the homework so you can basically do it in class. his tests and quizzes are pretty hard and i think he likes the boys on the football team better

I took Precal with Kuhn and it was pretty easy- at least it was easier than when I took Honors Geometry with him. He might seem intimidating at first, but he's really funny and he acts like an actual human being rather than a grade machine. Be careful that you do all the homework and take the retakes- you should be fine.

An amazing math teacher and a cool guy. He makes some dumb jokes that arent really funny, but his teaching more than makes up for that. Generally he is a fair grader. His tests are very hard, but if you study its possible to do decently.

He was such a jock, he just loved anyone who did varsity sports, it was definitely favoritism. That said, he was all right at teaching.
