Honestly don't take him. Yes he's a nice person but he's a terrible teacher. Extremely unclear about all instructions and his exams have very specific random questions about one thing he said in class once. I did well in his class but it was extremely stressful. The class material itself is not challenging it should be a really easy course. He's also always going on about his own achievements which is kind of annoying

He goes on anecdotal tangents and many of his analogies are apparent self-inserts. Unclear, but he usually is just stuck in a redundant rut. He repeats the simplest ideas over and over as if they were difficult to grasp. He has not communication skills; comes off as insecure and uncharismatic.

WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT TAKE HIM YOU WILL REGRET IT FOR THE REST OF THE SEMESTER. his classes are extremly boring, did not leanr a thing, his accent made it impossible to understand. His exams are very easy though as long as you study. But trust me you will regret taking his class is it the most boring class Ihave ever taken.

I had him for Interpersonal Knowledge and Communication. I suggest not taking him at 8am (as I did), because you will fall asleep. It's a boring subject, and he's as sleepy as us, so it's useless, basically. For his exams, they're really specific; he'll ask about little details, so you do need to study. If you're sat in the back (anyways, in my class) you can cheat very easily. Also, he does not post one thing online. You depend on the textbook and notes. Good Luck with him!

He's a funny guy but not so much of a good teacher. Exams aren't that bad if you learn the material by heart. He really cares about his students. He has really funny stories to tell and he loves telling them! Takes absences every class. His tests are confusing though cause the questions don't always make sense grammatically. The class is almost all copy-paste from the textbook. He's cute but only take him if you really have to.

Very lost teacher. Always saying "I think" before trying to explain something unclear. Very strong accent, makes it hard to understand since he does not explain his material well. Is always talking about himself. Took an early childhood education course he taught, and he seemed to have never interacted with children. avoid taking him if you can

BAD TEACHER. so bad! Confused, slow reader, incomprehensible. His examples are filled with prejudice, stereotypes and a bit of racism. You end up teaching yourself the class. Doesn't use omni in any way, whether Mio or Lea. His tests are demanding (600 word essay on a small subject barely covered in class in 1 and a half hours plus 15 questions). Tells ridiculous stories (that may or may not have really happened) and is OBSESSED with Justin Trudeau. Take this class if you want to punish yourself

He talks about nonsense all class long, and then adds random things that he didn't teach on quizzes & exams. He just likes to talk about himself, and thinks he is the smartest man bcs he has a phd (Relax Buddy) Honestly, easy to cheat during exams bcs he's burnt lol .... but honestly worst teacher.

cutest man ever. class is very boring. he tells many of stories of his experiences with his past students and what i got from those stories is that he likes to fail people who dont make eye contact with him. It hasnt happen to anyone i know so nothing to worry about. He is a slow reader so the pace of the class is alittle slow. A lot of the material is common knowledge. (interpersonal...) overall he is a very nice teacher. his tests are alittle confusing and he miscounts marks often.

AVOID !!! this man has no idea what he's talking about. he teacher a communications class but can't communicate for the life of him. he doesn't use MIO at all which is really frustrating, and you can understand anything he says because of his accent. he is very slow, goes over everything like 4 times and a 2 hour lecture feels like 4 hours. I hated going to his class and eventually stopped showing up because I couldn't sit through two hours of mumbling. Avoid if you can

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CLASS AT ALL! He does not have a clear marking scheme and has issues communicating his thoughts. His tests are poorly written and he expects you to memorize around 120 pages per test. He is rather simple minded and does not understand enriched vocabulary or complicated concepts. If you ask him a question he will often restate the question in the form of a statement without actually answering the question.
