Probably one of the worst teachers you could possibly take. You can't understand a word he says and he shows up late to every class. You have to teach yourself everything in the class. He should retire as soon as he can.

Where do I begin with him. For one im in class right now typing this review because I have nothing else to do. He doesnt follow the book at all and just goes off on whatever he feels like. YOU MUST TEACH YOURSELF so be prepared. He seems like a good guy but he should definitely retire immediately, make that he should have retired years ago.

He can be very unclear and often teaches things in the most round-about difficult way possible. He would often explain Algebra using reasoning from a higher level course. His mannerisms are both cute and annoying. Try to teach yourself the material before coming to class. I would never really grasp the concept until I went home and taught myself.

The class is hard and the material doesn't come naturally. But he does do a good job explaining the concepts. And he's willing to help anyone, who's struggling, when they attend his office hours. He might come off as craggy but if you put in the work, you'll do fine.

cutest man alive. "never do my fingers leave my hands". If you pay attention in class, or even just GO TO CLASS and pay the slightest bit of attention, you will pass the tests. Hes really old and has a lot of experience.

You need to read to book before going to class so that you understand what he is talking about because he is not always clear. Can go off on tangents about certain things that you do not need to know. Helpful if you have questions...he's pretty funny too

I'm not sure how this man has not been rendered clinically insane. He talks to himself, and from time to time wears a sweatsuit over his normal suit. He is useless, i had to teach myself everything.

too old to still be teaching, stands up at the board and talks to the board instead of the students. Never answers questions to the homework and is so dull I want to kill myself.
