he's extremely full of himself and ignores and makes fun of the few girls in his classes. if you're not one of his favorites he makes class miserable. physics was something i was very interested in studying. the homework and tests were easy it's his treatment of students that made this class hard to come into every day.

Goes on at least one half hour tangent per class. pretty condescending especially in lab. it's really hard to focus in his class because it's often just a free for all, but he knows a lot about physics and the tests are fair.

Mr. G was the best science teacher I have ever had. He was knowledgeable and helpful, and he made concepts easy to understand. I have always had to work hard in science, and his class was no exception. He did many demonstrations and we did a lot of hands-on work, which made it easy to learn. I remember being annoyed about reading the textbook for homework before lessons, but as an educator myself now, I understand. I took this class 10 years ago and it is still my favorite-ever science class.

He often went off on tangents in class. His attempts at getting us to teach ourselves by literally never assigning homework after then end of the first quarter failed absolutely miserably, and is continuing with his little "experiment" as you read this, most likely. He was a nice person, and he certainly seems capable, he just doesn't spend much time actually teaching.

His class is the only class I've ever struggled in. His tests are mad hard. He makes a lot of ridiculous jokes and goes on tangents about literally everything, his class is like comedy club.

He can be funny and nice at times, but other times he has spazz attacks. He teaches alright.. but he should go over tests I think people would learn more then

A very knowledgable and talented teacher but demanding, while assigning lots of homework. He is also fairly inflexible when it comes to school policies.
