not sure where all of these good reviews are coming from because he's terrible. had him for ap bio and he wasn't a bad teacher when he actually did teach but the tests were always kind of crazy. oh, and if you don't do well on an unfair test it's 100% your fault because he acts like his teaching skills were a gift from the gods (spoiler, they are not)

Had him for regents bio. The dude was ridiculously smart, but pretty hard as well. He called it baby bio, but it was honestly a lot of work. Convinced me to take SAT 2 Bio, did well on it, and did well on the regents. Gets a lot of hate because he's kind of a weird guy, pretty hard, and pretty strict, but just do your homework, laugh at his jokes, don't get on his bad side, and participate. Not sure about AP Bio though, which I heard he goes extremely hard on.

Mr. Lee cannot TEACH. If you complain about him, he'll say that you fail the test because you don't do your hw that you don't know your material blah blah. He ALWAYS uses this excuse as to why his classes fail every time. No Mr Lee, how about those people who do your hw and review them (like me) AND STILL FAIL? What about that ah? Recently, he's trying to "improve" by teaching us via Power Points. I'll give credit for that. I at least understand Bio better now thanks to his new teaching method.
