Ahhh.Where do I begin with Turof?It was probably one of the worst classes I've ever had to live through.He's a great guy,don't get me wrong,but his teaching abilities suck.He's very monotonous and puts three quarters of the class to sleep.During labs be always rushes you to finish which is annoying.Then at the end of class,with ten minutes left he gives up or is too lazy to teach anymore and calls it a day to watch samurai movies.If you care about your education,switch teachers.

This man wrote the high sparrow. This man is Jon Snow. This man is not Theon. This man has the grunts. This man has a dream. This man fought for equal rights in chemistry. This man grunts clearly and loudly making it very easy to learn. This man makes fine meats. He likes his meats like he likes his women, Raw.

Havnt passed one quiz this man doesnt have a clue what is going on in his classroom. Half the class is asleep from lack of enthusiasm and the other half is baffled from the noises he makes. Multiple students reported getting their phones taken away for using it as a calculator. He doesn't not care about the students success but rather more when the period ends so he can throw food all over his table. Time for retirement Turof

It's very hard to learn from Mr.Turof.It's hard to listen to him speak because he speaks so softly and slow.He's a nice guy,but simply put,he can't teach.When you don't understand a topic you better speak up or he's gonna move on and start teaching something new that's not on the quiz or anything.Sometimes he's in a bad mood and grunts at you too.

It was a great experience overall having Turof for AP Chemistry. Great professor and pushes you to learn in that "college" environment which is great prep for the future.

He was okay. I got to know him and he was nice. His lessons are something to get used to. Hypocritc in some areas regarding classroom rules. Only thing I really disliked about it all was that i studied 5 days and failed the regents by 1 point.

I LOVED having him for Honors Chem! He really goes out of his way to make sure you understand the lessons and he's extremely nice. He also does tons of fun experiments a few times a year. His tests/quizzes are fair, and he drops the lowest quiz grade every quarter, which definitely helped my average. I had lots of good times being in his class this year.

Turof is a great guy. I never had him as a teacher but he is the advisor of science club and lets us decide whatever we want to do. Melt glass, watch dr. phil, draw outside with chalk. We get along well :]

Mr Turof may very well be one of the worst teachers I have ever had. He is the most confused man I have ever had. I don't know how he got a licensce to teach.
