3 words. BEST TEACHER EVER. Before I took this class, people warned me that Chem would be hard because he "doesn't teach." This is not the case. He is extremely clear on what he wants you to get done, and if you don't understand something, he will go out of his way to make sure you understand it. you need to read the book to be successful. I would def recommend him, but make sure you are good at math (pro at Alg I) and have common sense before you take the class. funny jokes too

Lots of haters here, though I don't really understand why. My experience with him was pretty positive in general. If you study well and pay attention in class, you'll do well. If you don't, you'll get bad grades. Pretty much how it goes in his class and every other class. One thing I'm not too big on about him is that he's way too easy on the kids who don't study/do much work.

He is very bad at explaining and teaching things, and goes too fast most of the time. The only upside i can think of is that he curves the grade, so it makes it much easier compared to other chem teachers. But other than that, he completely fails at teaching.

Mr. Olsberg isn't that bad of a teacher. He is really helpful whenever I asked him questions during lunch and after class. Well, his test are hard in my opinion because sometimes he would throw off random questions on the test. Sometimes, he is bit awkward and very sarcastic at times.

on the first couple days of school i thought his jokes were super lame, but you really get used to them. they almost become funny. anyways, chem isn't easy and neither is his class, but he's not that bad.

Mr. Olsberg looked like a nice teacher at first glance, but he turned out to be the worst teacher I ever had. I don't mind the Goldfish crackers that he gives out, and I sort-of mind his (terrible) puns, but I really mind his teaching skills. Basically, it is pathetic. Some assignments are a waste of time, and his tests sometime consist of absurd questions.
If you find chemistry easy in his class, I envy the few of you. Otherwise, expect you grades to plummet.

He's extremely self centered and doesn't care about his students. He's really condescending and I always felt like if I asked for help he would treat me like I was dumb. It's cool that he cares enough to give out goldfish though.

He is somewhat self centered. And feels that every joke he pulls is the funniest on earth. He is not the best of teachers as he doesnt explains his lessons all too well and speaks to most of the class in a sort of kindergarden teacher like tone, which gets very agitating often. His afored mentioned jokes which are not funny make class very awkward, and he tends to lean towards his favorite students.
