SAKA!!!!!! God i love this man! I had him for AP Enviro, he is so down to Earth and amazing and I will never forget his class. Although he's a great person, in order to do really well in his class you have to pay attention and REALLY study for the tests. If you have him, you're lucky!

Saka is incredible. To truly exceed in his class you have to WANT to learn. He'll put in the effort to make chemistry as understandable as possible if you put in the effort to actually want to understand Chem (honors). Go in at lunch and ask him questions, he'll see that you are trying and will help you in every way he can. Lots of extra credit towards the end of both semesters. Semester 2 is much harder than the first so don't slack off. Always do the homework, those points add up in the end.

Ahh, where to begin. I had Saka for H Chem and AP Enviro. Let me just say that he's a G. Class isn't too tough and he usually keeps his 85-100 A, 70-85 B, etc... curve for the class unless everyone cheats or is disrespectful. Genuinely a great guy that really does care about his students. Even if you can't pay attention during his sometimes-boring presentations, don't talk or seek unnecessary attention, it will only make things worse for you.

Good teacher, i m not crazy about him, but he 's a good guy. i was in his honors chem class and its obvious he knows his stuff, but sometimes he didn't explain it the best, but if you ask him he will definitely help. Gives quite a bit of ec near end of year so that really helps your grade. First semester is a breeze, had a 98% in the class. Second semester EVERYONE'S GRADES WILL DROP!!! it is difficult so be prepared.

Saka is a pretty chill person. His teaching is pretty slow and boring though. His seating system is kinda uncomfortable too. I had to constantly turn around to take notes because I was facing the back of the class. The class is noisy most of the time

Although Saka may not be the best, he really supports his students and helps them understand to the best of his ability. You're missing out if you don't get to have him as a teacher. if you've never had him, you're missing out. love ya Saka!

Tough class, great teacher. Those phrases always seem to come hand in hand, as they should. If anyone wonders why he always changes his teaching methods, it's because he is always trying to make sure his students are learning, which is the MOST important thing to him. If you don't understand a concept in class or on the podcast, TALK TO HIM! He will help you and make sure you understand everything. He loves science and shows that to his students. Great class.

I was in AP. The class was fairly easy to get a good grade in. However, when the AP came around, I felt totally unprepared. I struggled the entire year. The AP Chem exam has a huge curve. I got a 4.

Saka's H Chem class is extremely hard and he rarely teaches in class. Lessons are online podcasts. Ask for help if you don't understand. He is really nice and helpful if you ask but tests are killer.

He is a better friend than a teacher, i must admit. I love him as a person, but I had to teach myself a lot of the chemistry. He and i are good friends though, which is the only reason i agreed to AP
