The best maths teacher ive had in my life. He lets the class have fun and talk to neighbors, without which maths would be hell, but also explains concepts really well. A very good one on one teacher too, if you have any questions, he does't just give you the answer but explains each and every step beautifully, leading to a full understanding of maths. Decent sense of humor too

Can't teach. Even though I sat & listened to everything, he wouldn't make any sense. Would tell people to "look back to their notes" if they didn't understand anything. He never gave us notes. Horrible.

Mr Weusten's one of my favourite teachers this year cos he lets us do what we like. This is a lot better than some of my other subjects where you get crucified for talking to your neighbour, which results in extreme boredom. Mr Weusten is really only suited to teaching the accelerated stats class that doesnt need much teaching, and is easy to control. Stats-based humour is awesome

I rate Mr Weusten VERY HIGHLY as i had gone from a 4th form drop out failing in almost every subject especially maths, which i found painfully boring, to passing 5th form maths!! he helped me appy myself and showed me how things could be used in everyday situations. i think all those ppl out there who are giving this guy bad rating should give him a break! half of you probably have your heads too far up your buts to even pay attention during class and its your own damn fault your failing.

I went from an A in SC (year 11), to almost failing in year 12, even though i was doing great in all my other subjects. He just didn't understand him, and he never checked if the class was keeping up.

Mr Weusten knows a lot, but the problem is, things arent taught very well. he will race through explaining something, which we already know. We did algebra for 1 whole term. Hes lame jokes nd is lazy!

mr weusten doesnt really help the students who need help the most. he knows what he's doing, but doesnt teach too well

He relies too heavily on the book explanations. High-achievers will do well despite this, but they will get little support or extension.

He dosn't know what he is doing or what his students are capable of. He is not very good at explaining things
