Honestly, most of these reviews are overexaggerated. Chamaa is a nice guy, he does play favorites and is a real tough class, but he tells you what you have to know for a test. Take this class only if you are prepared
Okay, so we now have a petition going around, and most of the class signed it. He hardly tells us when a test or quiz is coming, and he doesn't even correct the homework. It's like he expects us to know something we haven't learned yet. Absolutely horrible, and I cannot wait to graduate this year. I feel like I've learned less this year, than my last two years. Granted he is available for help, but the help he gives, DOES NOT help, he forgets what you come in for. Absolutely horrible.
This teacher is unprofessional, unprepared to teach, and does not teach you nor is helpful. If you want to learn and do well in math, DON'T TAKE THIS TEACHER and if you get him, get out of his class.
Never learned anything in that class! He just gave us homework and expected us to do it without teaching us. He will give us tests on things we haven't really learned. NEVER GET THIS TEACHER!
No one is able to understand that to get an A in the class, you just have to listen to him. And above all else, Chaama is a really great person. So disappointed that no one else thinks he's so great. 2952
horrible teaching style with no regard for the well-being and success of his students
he does not explain well enough and spends a lot of the class time just joking around with the sarcastic kids he assigns work from the textbook before he actually teaches us the work and then when we don't understand the next day he gets impatient and doesn't explain enough before he goes to the next lesson(which he usually only starts about 5 minutes before class ends)when i tried to talk to him after class for help he brushed me off & was 0% helpful and 100% impatient switch out if you get him
I really like his teaching philosophy and his overall teaching style, however, I dislike how he doesn't explain things clearly most of the time. His class is easy if you're good at math, and you can tell how much he's frustrated by students who don't grasp concepts that they should have gotten ages ago. If anything, the students make the class go slower than I'm comfortable with, but that's largely due to his inability to explain things (English being his third language).
I switched Schools to get away from him. I couldn't switch out. His class is horrible, he grades homework for the first 20mins of class then babbles on about either his BMW's or Fruit Trees then tries to pack a whole lesson in 15mins. i was failing the first month of school due to his ridiculous teaching methods.
This has been a tough year. I am now paying a tutor in the hopes my child will pass. Math has been my child's best subject until now. He is a nice man, but I don't recommend him.
Chamaa is a great guy. All you have to do to pass his class is do your work. If you listen to his lecture then you will be fine. Do the homework for yourself not for the grade. It actually helps. Pro-tip if you don't understand something ask him. Stay behind or go in at lunch, it's not hard. Plus the philosophy club is really fun.
I'm just going to be honest here and say that he is such a horrible teacher. Because of him, I'm being placed in Intermediate Algebra 2. He never explains anything and whenever you ask him a question, he answers it with another question. If you ever get him please switch out fast, its not worth it. You won't get anywhere in his class even if you tried your hardest. One of the most horrible teachers I've ever had.
Who cares if his class is tough... he is actually really nice.
mr chamaa? too hard of a grader, it would be cooler if he rode a camel to school.
Chamma shouldn't teach algebra 1b, he's too hard of a teacher. I can tell he doesn't like us. Chamma should teach Honors or AP classes.
Always willing to help and clairfy. Loves an intelligent conversation, and has great pride in his students.
