Dr. Li is the sweetest teacher. He's super smart and he knows what he's doing. A lot of the students were really disrespectful and made fun of his accent but he does do his best to help you out. The papers he handed out were super clear and easy to understand. I'm so sad he's not at stuy anymore :(

He's a very kind and passionate teacher. But here's my problem. He's not that good at catching cheaters. I get 90s on most of the tests, through honest means, but there are others in the class who cheat in every single test and get really high 90s or 100s and they get a higher average than I do. SO MANY CHEATERS. (These are problems with the students not the teacher)
However, Dr.Li is actually a pretty good teacher. Listen to him carefully and you'll do good on the tests without cheating.

He is really dedicated to helping his students to the point where he still comes to school to teach despite having some serious personal situations and he should be taking the time to take care of his family. We can manage from the amazing handouts by itself Dr. Li!

AHH!!! greatest teacher!! dont transfer out because of his accent, he is a great explainer once you get used to his accent and he really tries for you to understand. he creates worksheets that he obviously spent so much time on and is organized in his lesson plans. do the regents questions he gives you and instant 95-100. love him to death!!!

Great teacher - got annoyed at me for not doing hws for a week, though I did well in his class!
Also, keep in mind, most of his low reviews are for "clarity" but the printed lesson plans are so clear, I'm giving full points

Amazing teacher. Some of his students say that they can't understand him because of his accent, but he gives lesson plans that you can read and understand so it's not as big of a deal as some people make it seem. He's a really hardworking teacher and he really cares about his students. He wants you to work as hard as you can though, so he'll get upset if you sleep or don't pay attention in class. Read the lesson plans and do his homework and you'll do really well in his class.

The best chemistry teacher you can get. While his tests are incredibly easy to do well on, you learn TONS from his class (his review sheets). Accent's not a problem. He's very dedicated.

What you do is read his sheets THEN you do whatever you want afterwards: sleep, hw (even his own), etc. He gives out a test review sheet a few days before the test. It's practically the test itself so make sure you know it.
