Alex is HILARIOUS! I don't know if he's retiring for sure but if not take him! No homework ever, one term paper and three exams, all easy if you read the book. He gets really carried away sometimes and doesn't even really teach, but it's super funny! He's a fair teacher and his tests are basically 90% multiple choice, a lot of the questions are things you already know. Awesome complementary class, do take.

Wow, Alex is the most awesome teacher in the world! He swears a lot to make classes funny, and tells amazing and hillarious stories to teach the material. If you listen in class and/or read the material you will get over 100 like I did. He is so helpful if you need it, and everything is clear and incredibly interesting! I switched programs because of this guy! If I could I'd take the class again, he's that good!

Okay, keep in mind that I wrote this review after having Alex for only ONE CLASS. I got lazy or forgot to say it after that day, but I digress: Alexander Stirling is possibly the most qualified for his job. He doesn't use the leverage of having a brain that retains a lot of information on a particular subjects, he uses his casual (ie, swearing all the time) nature to really speak to kids in a language they can't get bored with. He's hilarious and entertaining and really inspires me.

I loved Alex!! He is John Abbott's coolest teacher! He is in his 70s, but has the energy of a 20 year old. He is always swearing and telling funny stories, but still manages to teach all the material required for his tests. He shows a lot of movies and gives out bonus questions, so it is easy to get a high mark. Just read the textbook, listen in class, and do some studying before the tests.
