He is so mean and unapproachable. Seriously, he makes me feel so inferior and treats me as if I were a dodo bird. Always takes points off where as the other teachers are always nice enough to understand. Also, I wish he used the packets less :(

Loves what he does, and in turn makes you love it as well. If your tired of teachers not knowing why things work, take his class.

Greatest teacher ever. Makes college professors (even at an ivy league) look like crap.

This guy is a genius. He helped me with my AP Chem homework one day even though he teaches AP Physics. I signed up for it the next year and he's a great teacher even for dumb kids like me.

University-grade professor teaching high school. Take him if you can. Students(or parents) generally pay a lot more for his level of instruction.

I can almost guarantee that you WILL fail every test throughout the year. However, the beautiful thing about this course is that you will not get below a 4 on the AP exam.
