Mr. Chau is a very efficient math teacher. He explains the examples thoroughly and also provides numerous examples. He also clearly clarifies any confusion among the students. Pay attention and you will succeed. The only complaint would be the way he runs the class. First, he does not round up grades, so even if you have an 89.99%, you will still have a B; unless of course, you get perfect participation or make-up points; which is possible, but difficult. He also does 1 question tests. 0 or 100%

One of the best teachers on campus. All you have to do is pay attention in class and do the review, and you will do well in the class. He's a very caring and genuine teacher. Honored to have him for two years. As long as you stay on task and do what you're supposed to, this class will not be a struggle.

Great teacher. He explains lessons very well. During class, he does many examples and you could ask questions about it and he'll be nice about it. He's really into teaching and cares about student's education. He want students to succeed. He gives you study guides. As long as you pay attention in class, you'll be good. Don't wait until last minute to study!! He's an awesome teacher.

I didn't like him at first, but he's a really awesome guy. His lessons are extremely undertsandable and he really knows what he's doing. His worst aspect is that he is conceted and picks on everybody, especially if you talk a lot to him. He's funny.

he doesn't give you a hard time if you get a good grade. if you complain about his class then he's going pick on you infront of the whole class. makes tests and quizzes hard but allows retakes!

i think he's a pretty good teacher. everything he says is really easy to understand. some people hate him just because his tests and quizzes are hard, but that's not fair. if you do all your homework and pay attention in class, you're sure to do well :)

hey pays extra attention to the asain kids in class. and he needs to lighten up on his tardy policy. the only thing i like about that class is is the homework because he gives out the weeks worth of hw on one day so i just finish it in one night.

Mr. chau needs to not pick on certain students if they show up one minute late. Because they have after school activity's to attend.
