    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend taking his class because he is always open for questions if any of the students get stuck on a certain step. If a student is stuck on a step he will do his best to explain it so that the student can comfortably move on with the material. He also likes to connect everything with life making math easier because the student will be able to picture the equation with what they are working on.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that math is very by the book like if the homework assignment has a rule a student would not be able to find an answer to a question if he/she would ignore the rule to the assignment or equation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be shy to ask questions if you are having trouble understanding the material because it is most likely that there is another student in the same class that does not understand it as well.
