in retrospect, a very bad teacher. he may be very knowledgeable, but never taught anything, just assigned circuits and made hard tests.

Had him for physics, he didn't teach (sat at his desk while we did problems, occasionally derived some formula), grades very hard (I got a C+), doesn't answer ?s, but is very funny and nice.

Coolest teacher ever!!! Tech was so fun and helps a lot for AP physics. People keep complaining about how hard his classes are, but unless you are a complete moron, you still get an A. I mean, a 40% on a quarter test would still give you an A if you finished all of your other works. In fact, his outrageous curve on tests saved me as I never did any of the class work and kept getting 80% (which curves up to like 200%) on tests.

BEST TEACHER EVER. People complain his class is hard, but unless you don't do the work in class, you can't get lower than a B, even if you get below 20% on the quarter exams.

Taught too far beyond the ability of 9th grade students. Class was way to hard - especially since tech was supposed to be a joke class. Awesome guy though.
