(Waves) Honestly I finished with an amazing grade, and while I didn't find the class hard, I'm not sure how I feel about the teaching method. High emphasis on team work in class. I didn't like it. I prefer lecture + individual work. I don't want to teach my peers. Smart guy tho, and he knows his stuff. Sometimes I felt like his teaching was condescending though...but maybe that's just me. Overall fine class + he puts in effort to see everyone succeed. Rip R score

He's a really nice person, but not the best teacher. Even though I prefer the traditional methods of teaching, he uses a lot the technology and smart boards. He makes you do a lot of class activities and teaches only for a small amount of time. You have to do your readings before coming to class. Overall, he really wants to succeed and ALWAYS GIVES BONUS marks which is really nice and boosts up your grade :) Tests are pretty hard; prepares you well for the final

I definitely do not think he was an amazing teacher at all. His teaching methods are not traditional which I found hard to adapt to. His class is built around the students teaching each other which I did not approve of. It was more like a semi guided class where he gave the basic concepts and let the students run with it which was ineffective for new topics. He teaches more theory than actual problems and his tests are hard too. But he is a funny guy and has some funny t-shirts

Best teacher ever! He makes the material interesting! More teachers should apply his techniques of teaching. No wonder why he won an award on teaching this year from all Quebec.

He isn't as helpful as he should be, often responding to questions with "You should have read that in the book." It is true that he makes physics interesting, but not THAT interesting. Tests are LONG. Be prepared to write FAST.
