Seriously if this is education wow. Needs to have good look at himself . this would be THE reason I would not enrol another child at this school. The most bigoted unforgiving human out, not good qualities for a teacher.

He's like a military sergeant. But he's all good. Has a strong front that seems really strict and what not, but any time outside of school, he's a big softie. Knows his stuff, and knows how to explain everything you need to pass, great teacher as long as you listen to him.

A very helpful teacher who knows what he's doing. Can be strict at time but only does so to help his students learn better. A very kind teacher who always gives good advice.

Ignorant, self righteous, plays the machiavellianism card frequently to keep his frown upsidedown.

he's a good teacher but he talks too much bout his family and how we HAVE TO 'study' and things like that. also, when i ask a question, he doesn't really answer it. he thinks i will probably know.

In my opinion, very funny and an excellent teacher. Uses very funny methods for teaching and is very humorous. I like how I am one of his students in his Japanese class!
