He used to be a good teacher but he isn't anymore. He's getting too old to teach. Quite often he'll make mistakes so it becomes difficult to follow. I had to rely on the textbook to teach myself. His sense of humor is not too great anymore and if anything it becomes awkward sometimes. The exams would be VERY easy if he could teach the lessons more efficiently. Sadly, he can't, hence my low rating. He means VERY well. He only wants the best for his students. Unfortunately, he can't deliver.
In all he was a great teacher. His lessons were concise and accurate, but never demanding in concentration. He jokes a lot to help ease students into a positive atmosphere. I have to say, personally anyone who believed he played favorites was probably saying so because they took the class too seriously or had a matching ego. He can have days where his lectures are pretty bland but he does try and stay positive. Respect him and he will respect you back. No matter what a teacher has authority.
Amazing teacher. Honestly the best Math teacher I've ever had. He knows exactly what he is teaching and he will repeat it if you don't understand it the first time. Helpful and very fun.
He was funny as hell. He helped me when ever i needed it. Im not that smart but i got an A in his Algerbra 2 class. Im in his pre calc now, but hes not there, Mrs santiago is and she sucks bad, a lot.
He was easily my favorite teacher in high school. He will go out of the way to help you if you simply ask.
Aside from Mr. Storer, Collins was my favroite teacher at Cam. He's very clear, very helpful, you learn a lot, and he's funny as all hell.
One of my fav teachers! His math lessons were always so helpful and clear! He always helped out with problems I didn't understand and wouldn't mind going over the same prob. 20 times! Loved his class!
Best teacher @ ACHS!!! Still like the guy 13 years later. So down to earth. He really cares about his students! All around GREAT guy!!!
Mr.Collins is very organized , encourages students to think and is funny , although his jokes need some work. He clearly explains everything , and tests follow from hw and notes.
good teacher...very funny guy, has a special nickname/inside joke with practically everyone in class. scary when he's mad, but overall, good guy.
Great teacher with good sence of humor. Cares alot about students. Jokes need help :)have had him for 2 years and have learned alot.
Yeah Collins! He's a very funny guy, makes jokes about everyone. Very good teacher!! I only got a C because I don't lke studying. :P
The best math teacher ever!! He's really funny and just kinda laid back. He rocks!!
Mr.Collins helped me along in Algebra 2 a lot, and made fun of the football players jokingly! What more do you need to make a class fun?
the best math teacher i've had so far in highschool.
He makes fun of the unpopular students.This is not professional.
You learn to love him! Awesome teacher and makes math fun. BEST EVER
anyone who thought he was serious about the boy/girl thing didnt know him well
chooses favorites and ridicules the less popular, unprofessional and immature

Best math teacher I have ever had, make you understand what you are doing.
He's rad, even though he is in denial girls are better than guys ;)
Mr. Collins was really nice and he was a great teacher, very helpfull and caring
Mr. Collins is sooo rad, he is the coolest teacher anybody could have.
He's tight because he made fun of people, and made you learn at the same time
Mr. Collins is awsome, he really cares about his students
Great teacher, it was my fault that I didn't do so well in math.
Not just a great teacher but a GREAT mentor Mr.C is #1
Had him as sub for 1sem, very funny, cared about progress, explained as needed.
He really cares about the students, and will take time to explain.
Mr. C was the bomb! Even though I got a D I still learned a lot!
he should teach at moorpark--he is that smart and tough; honest, direct, harsh
Very postive and outstanding teacher! 2 thumbs up for Mr. Collins
