Then don't trash on him. When we take notes for the whole class on HISTORY, I guess I figure that he teaches HISTORY.

I do not want to trash on the guy, but he really is only preparing you to take the test. The class is learning to take the test and a little history on the side

Nice guy, though slightly lax in returning graded essays and reaction papers. overall, though, you will be prepared for the AP test.

Does his best, and does very well in preparing. If you fail its probably because you didn't try. He was available almost every day after school and was helped

I know he prepared me WELL for the AP Exam. If you don't feel prepared, it's probably because you didn't bother to listen to him. One of the most helpful ever.

A very average teacher. Pretends to be more dedicated than he really is. College professors don't take months to return an essay. Stop making excuses Van Over!
