A very smart and effective teacher for ToK. His opinions are very on point and he'll defend them strongly. Sometimes you'll say something and he'll just shoot it down. BTW don't mention God or Religion in his class because he's very firm on his views. I think this one time he straight up said religion is irrational, like damn, I feel bad for the religious kids in the class. Other than that, a very informative and knowledgeable teacher. Don't be afraid to ask questions in his class either.

He's a really good teacher, last year I had Ms Lin for math and I didn't understand anything but I still got a decent mark. Mr Pirie explains everything really well and always has everything prepared to explain. He gets off topic a lot and we do these stupid word problems in the beginning of the class that don't help you at all. But other than those 2 flaws he's awesome!

Lots of good discussion in his TOK class and he's a zany hipster. One thing, though, is that he does have his opinions and if you give your opinion plays the devil's advocate way too much...question after question after question: but what if...? and so...? how about...? in what way...? *How do you know? ;)

He's pretty nice but can be a hypocrite. He would encourage you to speak your mind, but if you don't agree with what he thinks, he will shoot your ideas down.

He is the awesomest teacher I've ever met. Since I have him for TOK, so many things that he say don't make sense, but I blame it on the nature of the course. I highly recommend you to be in his class.

Interesting teacher, very nice and helpful if you're willing to work. Fair with marks as well, I especially like it when he scales. Overall good teacher for Math, explains things pretty well and his notes are pretty good for studying too. :) His classes are often fun because of his stories/jokes/accents/drawings.

wow, he is actually amazing. possibly the best teacher i've ever had in my life. the only downside is you need to know a thing or two about popular culture to understand some of his jokes. (then again, it's only a downside for the people that don't know popular culture...)
