Thomas Lee is one of the best teachers I've ever had. Rather than teaching material, he makes it his job to make sure that his students learn. Explains difficult concepts very clearly, and in different ways until you understand it. Will spend extra time one-on-one to make sure you get everything you need to know. Exams can be kind of hard but are definitely fair. Dedicated to making sure you get a 5 on the AP exam; if you don't, it's your fault, not his. It's a shame he's not at South anymore.

Mr.Lee is the best teacher I had ever had in high school so far(I am a sophomore). His calculus class is simply amazing and one of the few classes that I actually want to go. Remember to pay attention, that's all you need for and A and a 5. #So_Bored
