I honestly think Mr. Nelson is very unprofessional and definitely picks favorites, particularly his stupid tennis players. All he does is talk about Sagano's for half of the hour, speaks about the assignment for five minutes reading completely out of the textbook, then spends the rest of the hour talking about tennis players and cookies. HAVE A GOOD ONE COACH NELSON!

He ruined my GPA. I transferred schools this year, and am having a hard time because I never learned the geometry stuff. I never learned anything, you could easily copy every answer without learning.

Mr Nelson (geometry) and Mr Yeinor (physics) were my favorite teachers in high school. I graduated in 1984. I still use several of his expressions. He was the first great math teacher I had.

all he talked about was coaching and chocolate chip cookies. Only helped the athletes.

Not only a bad teacher but bad coach as well. Telling an athelete they are a dissgrace to the Flushing athletic program just because they didnt win an athletic event is not a way to boost troop moral.

Being called teacher is an overstatment. No teaching goes on in that classroom. It is intimidating to ask for help on an assignment because he will say is one of his obnoxious sayings and get no help.

I have had Mr. Nelson for 4 years and he is the BEST teacher ever! If you dont get it than ASK...people are just too afraid to ask him anything. Stop bashing Nelson he is awesome!

There is a reason people only call him Coach Nelson and not Mr. Nelson. He is quite possibly the worst teacher at Flushing.

He has to teaching desire what-so-ever. All he cares about are the tennis players and the skiiers. If you aren't one of them don't expect to be noticed or learn

I was his student in 1988-89 and he was the worst Algebra teacher ever. I warned my younger siblings to NEVER stay in his class. Professional educator? Hardly!

I love this class simply because all you do is sit there and talk and write down the answers as he says them. Great guy.
