One of the worst and most confusing teachers I have ever had. He is also never available if you have questions or need help and he treats you like you are very dumb.

Teaching to a class, meh.. but his primary strength is one on one communication and explanation. In Chem 1, teaching can be rocky at points but once you have the fundamentals down, he hits his stride in AP. He is extremely knowledgable and creates a relaxed environment which makes his AP course extremely fun, yet very educational.

Mr. Vonwerder is an awesome teacher. Though I struggled with the class throughout the semester, I think I can honestly say that I learned a lot of chemistry in the end.

no matter how well you know the material, his tests are just badly-designed,small mistakes mean big point deductions. the class is also just really boring, his OCD makes it kind of entertaining though

Once you get used to this guys style he's okay. He's pretty smart, but sometimes you have to coax the explanations out of him.

The Black Mage of the Science Department.... although he taught some cool stuff, none of it ever stuck. His tests were mean, even when you tried to study.

Ruined my life, along with several other students. Doesn't explain the material well at all, poor teaching style, and not very helpful.
