Very good teacher who is very knowledgeable. One of my favorite parts about him is how understanding he is. If a class doesn't do well on a test, unlike most teachers, he realizes that there was some disconnect on his side of things, and that it wasn't all the students fault (And usually gives the opportunity for some nice extra credit towards that bad test grade). I am not the strongest student and was able to finish with an A because of how important and heavily weighted the classwork is.

Mr. Wild is easily the most knowledgeable teacher that I have among 4 AP teachers. He is able to expound upon every important historical figure and makes the class engaging and interesting through his frequent historical anecdotes. His tests and essay grading makes the class require effort, but Mr. Wild rewards the effort of his students with easy classwork and homework grades. He is extremely kindhearted and makes a concerted effort to be fair and kind to all of his students.

Overall very good teacher. He makes his class interesting by interleaving videos, class discussions, worksheets, and group work. He is a very kind-hearted man and puts lots of effort into his teaching. The multiple-choice sections of his tests are very easy, but he is fairly harsh grading the True/false section and open-response section, so definitely try your best there. If you put the effort into his class, you will get an A.

He is generally a good teacher. He knows his stuff and is super passionate about history which makes the class fun. Group work! Group work! thats like the whole class, and in a weird way I from all the group work. Definitely study a little more for his tests. He cant look at the students when he is teaching its kinda weird. Guess our shoes are more interesting ;)

This guy knows his stuff but not a teacher you look forward to his class. He is so boring and just talk and talks and talks. or shows movies. Seriously, the guy thinks its college or something.

He's really really nice, and knows a lot about history, but is not a very challenging teacher - it's a little frustrating because I don't think he really knows how to connect with the students.

Be sure you understand assignments. I'm always frustrated when I get bad grades because I didn't know everything he wanted me to. Study hard, ask questions on the homework. Sometimes annoying/boring.

I do wish we did more than watch movies and do worksheets. Less work than Friedman which is good, but it is replaced with mindless stuff.

Everyone says he knows history well, but I couldn't tell because all we ever did was worksheets. Plus, he's a total robot- no eye contact or smooth movement.
