I would classify Mr. Al Nesbitt as someone who knows how to learn, not how to teach. He himself is extremely knowledgeable; however, he seems to have a hard time passing on his information to his students in a calm, collected, and HELPFUL way. He seems to always be in a sour mood, and he gets extremely agitated when asked any questions. I am confused as to why he is teaching impressionable grade ten and eleven students, who need GUIDANCE, not USELESSNESS! And his exams are impossible to do.....

great teacher. a lot of people are scared of him but basically, he will treat you how you treat him. if you're rude, he'll be rude, if you're nice, he'll be nice. not an easy marker, but if you study that shouldn't matter

Okay, he isn't completely evil. He is quite human and I guess he has bad days. He's really happy on fridays. Listen before a lab, ask questions only after he sees that you're a good student. If you are smart and respectful, you will survive! Good luck!!

he makes a lot of jokes and their funny sometimes but also rude sometimes. He doesn't mean to be rude, though. If you're confused you can ask him questions but he might just call you an idiot in front of the class so don't say anything. Don't even ask to go to the washroom or he'll be rude. But one of the best bio teachers at pc

It's controversial whether he's good or bad. If you're reading this because you haven't had him and you're afraid, I have some advice. He can smile, he's not some kind of demon, he actually laughs a lot!! 1)doesn't like wasting time, so don't waste his. 2)Don't ask too many questions, ask what's important. 3)PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT HE SAYS BEFORE A LAB. screwing up isn't fun. 4)treat him with respect, sometimes he hates showing minor mistakes. You're fine, good luck in bio tho!

Being fair and honest he taught me well, even though he marked horribly wrong, gave me marks for places i guessed and knew were wrong and marked my right answers wrong. If he fixes his marking he is a great teacher

He's not a very nice guy. His teaching methods suck, and can be very rude. His personality makes him unapproachable and he won't go easy on you no matter what the circumstance. Brought down my average by a lot cause I wouldn't come to him the next morning to ask what I missed. Gave me 0's on those assignments. He could be more understanding. It's hard to get assistance, so you're pretty much on you're own. ( And what's up with the choke collars? )

Mr Nesbitt is a really strict teacher that hands out alot of assignments and gives you a heavy workload, but you can learn alot from his classes and he really prepares you for the next year.

Not bad! Easy to get intimidated by, but gives clear lessons. Even bothers answering questions anyone has in great detail, including simplest things. It all depends on his mood. Overall, a great helpe
