The best math teacher I ever had. He made me understand math and I wish he could teach everyone. I think he's retired.

He thinks he is hot stuff. Something about his lecture style really didn't mesh with my listening style and I was very annoyed by him. Most of my prof I'd eat lunch with but with him? I wouldn't. Very annoying. Needs friends.

Dirk the dork is troubled like the guy above and yes he will belittle you in front of your peers; but if you don't mind feeling inferior then go ahead and take his class.

Mr. Dirks taught the class very well. He is as clear as possible. Ask all the questions you want, just don't interrupt him when he's explaining. Exams should be easy if you study.

The whiners seem to want a good grade with no work. Forget that. Can't do it in his class. He's tough, but good, clear, helpful. I had to do a pile of homework, but he answered every question I had and helped me understand math better than any prof I've ever had. Ya want an easy good grade? Take somebody else. But you'll be lost in the next class.

Whoever wrote the latest comments has his own problems. I've taken two classes with him and never seen him laugh at a student. He will point out errors that show up on exams, but nobody can tell who made them. He's tough, but clear & helpful. You have to keep up with the work and do your homework. He gives you a chance to ask questions every day.

HE MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE SOOOOO DUMB. IF YOU ASK SOMETHING HE LAUGHS AT YOU. FAIR EXAMS, BUT THEN HE LAUGHS INFRONT OF THE WHOLE CLASS OF YOUR MISTAKES. SOMETIMES HE EXPLAINS, SOMETIMES HE THINKS YOU KNOW, SO YOUR BEST IN THIS CLASS IS UR BOOK!

I'm not good in algebra, but he made it clearer to me than anybody else. These jerks who complain just don't want to do the work. If you're willing to do your part and make an effort, you'll learn some math

This place sounds like a site for whiners. I took PreCal and Trig with this guy. I had to work my butt off, but I learned something. Then I took Cal 1 with him. I found out I was better prepared than most people in the class. After that I took Cal 2 with somebody else, and I was still one of the best prepared in the class. Enough said.

All those yahoos who think he sucks are not really interested in learning anything. If you pay attention, study, and do your homework, you can really learn from this guy. Nobody's explanations are clearer. Yeah, he can be cocky, but he knows his stuff and knows how to teach it. Ya really want to learn something? You can do it in his class.

Very Hard class. Not very patient with the students. If you ask a question he'll either make u feel worse then u did already or he wont be helpful at all. He's extremely cocky. One good thing, he tells u what's going to be on the test before hand. The test are fairly difficult. To pass - DO YOUR HOMEWORK EVERYDAY. SCARY CLASS, VERY STRESSFUL

Run away from him while u have the chance. IF u want to sleep, breath and eat math, take him, that should say it all.

he is hard, period. As many have mentioned, spends to much time talking about random stuff that have nothing to do with math. Also, his ego is way up there, if u know what i mean, also, shut up if u dont know the answer, he will make an ass of u for stupid****.

He has funny stories, and has a jolly disposition in general. If you don't do the homework you will fail, If you're not good at math you might get a 'C'. I had a 'B' and I am not good at math. unfortunately I had to drop his class due to personal problems, But I do recommend him. Funny guy. He can seem slightly fed up wit the world sometimes.

He is such a cocky ****. He constantly was telling the students how much he new trigonometry better than us. When it came to teaching it to us, he did not do so very well. Everything I learned in this class, i learned on my own.
