I am so surprised by these ratings of Mr. Smo! I had him years ago. I've since graduated from college and Mr. Smo is still one of my favorite teachers I've ever had. I attribute my love for Chemistry to Chem and AP Chem taught by Mr. Smo.

I LOVE SMOOOOO! But im gonna be so honest, he is a bad teacher. It was easy for me because I love science and I kinda went into chem knowing everything. But if you don't know chemistry prior to the class its gonna be hard. Most people just end up copying the answer key for the worksheets but dont do tht bc on the test ur gunnaaaa fail. But he is such a great person.If you get smosmo just brace yourself for the BEST TEACHER EVER but get a tutor bc he cant teach at all.

Mr. Smolenski aka smo is really nice but he isnt that good at teaching the subject of chemistry. He gives you the answers to the worksheets and makes it seem easy till you get the test and you have no idea what to do. If you get him get ready to have an easy class with hard test. I would find a tutor or good YouTube channel for chemistry or your screwd(excuse my French)

Learn to copy in his class. Seriously, it's the best way to pass. His tests are really hard.

He is not a very good teacher, but he's nice at least. I don't learn anything unless I ask for help 1 on 1. I don't like the homework policy. The worksheets should be due the next day. Also, he needs to consider curving tests....

The material is tough but be sure to take full advantage of his work policy; he'll keep returning your work until you get it right but he'll help you along the way.

Awesome. Comp Sci was a blast. Let me come in his room and program for most of last year after I finished his class. Doesn't suffer fools gladly, though.
