Mr.Bethem was my honors biology teacher and was very bad at explanation. He answered questions with a sarcastic untrue answer leaving student very confused. He is a nice guy but for a teacher wouldnnot recommend. He does not teach the material needed to know for homework and test. Students of other honors biology classes knew more through out the entire year and had to help the rest of us make it through the week.

Mr. Bethem is a terrible teacher. Most of the time he gets off topic either telling personal stories or making fun of students. Every time you ask him a question he either tells you to read the textbook or answers the wrong question. It is basically impossible to get an A on anything. An 88% is the highest grade I've gotten in his class.

Mr. Bethem is an unorganized, unethical and poor teacher. In my opinion and the opinion of my classmates he should be fired. He refuses to help his students. I have little to no respect for this teacher. Comments he makes to students are unprofessional. I have never met a teacher that has made me so irritable and upset. Crying is a common thing to happen after class.

Mr. Bethem is a teacher that you can't mess around with. He gets angry when students don't understand the material and I always had to go home and relearn the stuff. If you study really hard at home he should like you but don't mess around with him he takes everything seriously.

Hey Mr. Bethem, a probablly future/current students. Mr. Bethem is a decent guy, but his teachings and student interactions are too casual. He expects everyone to understand what he is saying, and expects everyone to take him as a student. As a result, he becomes very confusing sometimes and difficult to understand. So, I would suggest reading the material over by yourself as it probablly would make more sense if you teach yourself.

Mr. Bethem isn't a bad person nor is he a bad teacher. He is simply not as good as others. I find my self trying to study for tests and having close to emotional breakdowns because I don't understand anything that is occurring in the class. It's not just me however, many of my classmates and friends belive so too. He's a good person but a very sub-par teacher.

Mr.Bethem does not care about his students. He singles people out and makes fun of them. When people ask questions he does one of three things, on his best days he answers the questions in vague ways, most of the time he says he doesn't know and says it's ridiculous to expect him to know things about the subject he teaches, or he just says "that won't be on the test"(which means it will definitely be on the test). He said don't write a review for him of ratemyteachers so of course I did.

I've liked Mr.Bethem as a person and teacher for the majority of the school year, but now I honestly wouldn't mind if he were to magically fall down ten flights of stairs. Although he's already closer to the ground than anyone I know so I'm not sure how much falling would do for him.
