Some teachers are very good at their job. It's just that I struggle a lot in math and my friends and I sometimes don't understand what the teacher is trying to teach (math) it's just really hard to learn. This is not a negative review it's just to point out the fact that my friends and I sometimes don't understand the material at times.
