He is a very nice person, but does not know how to teach. He reads the power point word for word and flies through chapters. He does not make his own tests so they are sometimes confusing and irrelevant. When asking for clarification, he has to check his answer key before responding.
Great man but worst teacher I have ever had. He relies completely on the textbook to do his work for him. All we do in class is sit there and look at his back while he reads a power point to us word for word. However, his tests are the worst. Not only do you have to use all the knowledge you taught yourself but you also have to figure out what the question means. Each question is actually a paragraph long and uses the most confusing vocabulary. He doesn't teach you ANYTHING. Switch out.
fantabulouso!!!!! the epitome of goals and his snake is my goals 39483984304/1 would reccomend
He means well... But has terrible teaching skills and is not very knowledgable for a teacher! Class gets very boring w/ his monotone voice. Double check your PowerSchool because often times he puts in grades incorrectly- which will negatively effect 9.999/10 times 😁
I was lucky to get Nichols when i checked my schedule over the summer until i actually experienced his class. He does not teach well and I have been trying to switch out of his class but it is taking forver. His tests are very specific and hard. He does not review the day before tests or quizzes which makes them harder. He is also a very rough grader. Good luck in his class you will need it.
Great guy, funny, smart, decent labs, the work wasn't too hard, study for the tests, teaching methods were a bit dull but still an awesome dude
Mr. Nichols needs some better teaching methods. All we do is go over the BSCS powerpoint. The class gets very boring, and I had trouble staying awake at times. At least he was always very nice and funny sometimes. He cares about the kids at least, just needs some new ways to keep the class interesting.
Overall, if i could describe PeterNichols in one way, it would be simple; "Missunderstood." Although as you can see, mr nichols is described as boring, people do not see past his underrated teaching s
This teacher needs to try some new teaching methods - far too boring and uninspired for a college prep bio teacher!
i never thought i'd be able to fall asleep in class until i had pichols. easy class but ruined bio for me. i would've loved the subject if i had a better teacher who kept me AWAKE
very boring....nice enough guy but very very very very boring...he will put you to sleep. do the work and you will pass
with nichols it's simple, you do the work, you pass. it's not hard at all. anyone who says he's hard just slacked off. he's a great teacher, just be willing to put up with many lectures
Mr. Pichols is the man, a good teacher, a good coach and a nice person. So what if he hadnt left Ridgfield, he is doing what he likes and is succesful as a teacher and coach
excelent teacher... he isnt given half the respect he deserves... people who say hes hard will never make it in reall life...
what a dumb person, whenever asked a question, "well, im not really sure" and you call yourself a teacher!
