I've had him for 2 years in a row, he is definitely a hard marker but i'm sure he'll prepare you well for university and develop good working habits , he is funny and occasionally puts a smile to your face in chemistry. His application questions however, are usually the toughest on his tests (most people do poorly in that section), he is willing to help when you ask him but sometimes he can confuse you even more. Sometimes a little confusing when he teaches.

He knows what he's talking about, but his teaching approach could be better. Usually has you print out notes on moodle and then takes it up in class. Doing all the homework he assigns you will help a lot. Extremely picky on in-class labs, tests, and quizzes. You'll likely fall asleep in class, makes boring/useless analogies for concepts that take 5 min to understand. Dry humour, sarcastic: don't get on his bad side (rarely gets angry though)! You'll definitely learn and be prepared for uni.

Markville's science dept. is exactly the greatest, but McKillop's dry humour makes up for everything!

Hilarious to listen to because of his strange thought process. Dry humour is good as long as it's not aimed at you...

Going into the class, I was told that he'd be very difficult but his class was fun. Does more than what's required. He may pick favorites but you have to go out of your way to get on his bad list.

Good teacher, and I really like his new system of putting notes online rather than having to copy page after page each class. Need to put lots of time into homework, but it seems to pay off.

Good teacher.. only for visual learners though.. Auditory or auditory/visual learners have a lot of trouble in his class cuz they can "hear" him in there head.. his voice is too monotonous.

Damn, I hate him. What he teaches is basically from the notes that he gives. The tests he gives are too hard. He marks hard too. His jokes are so mocking.

He's a funny guy for sure but defintely marks way too hard. His mission is to make up questions just to trick his students. His notes are way too long. Fun guy to talk to though.

Too many notes, but if you take the time to ask questions he is willing to help. He will increase his effort as you do...hear he preps you well for university - even tho it is tough at the time...Hope

cute in a nerdy sort of way....once you get past his cold demeanor, he's an okay teacher. Could try harder to be nice to his students, perhaps it would make him a little more approachable :)

Very hard marker, but it certainly pays off in university. It was his enthusiasm for chemistry that got me interested in it enough to want to minor in it.
