Montecalvo is a great teacher. He made organic quite easy to understand and was really willing to help students. Lots of office hours. Org takes a lot of studying and effort anyway but he makes the class so interesting. He's quite odd but really fun and a smart guy. Take him. I really don't like chem but I enjoyed his org I class so much.

Chem was my fav subject because of him. I took Org I with him and he's a very fair marker. Always there to help if you need help. Always pushes his students to do well, and it works. Awesome teacher.

Best teacher ever! I had him for Organic I and II and it was a breeze. He is a very fair marker and you can go to his office any time of the day, and he will surely be there to help you with questions

He was the best teacher I ever had for chemistry. His mini tests are super easy and did the final like a breeze. Take him if you can and he will make Organic Chemistry seem like a joke.

Great teacher, one of the most knowledgeable in chem, he can answer anything. His notes are very well done and he is always in his office and open for questions. Do take him if you can.

have to study more than what it takes to do well on his mini tests because otherwise, the final will be hard! Try to get wharf'S exams to prepare you for the final. But he is great because since you will do so well during the semester, you might pass before the final or need very little marks there to pass. for the final, mechanisms are key!

He's a good teacher. Pretty interesting, and his odd way of talking will keep you awake. He makes notes for you which are really helpful, but he has a habit of going too slowly for the first 3/4 of the semester and then cramming half the course into the last semester. Take him, but be prepared for a scramble at the end.

He's always there in his office if you have questions and explains everything very well. His notes are great, but sometimes he goes a little too slow during class and then crams everything in the last couple of weeks. That really sucked for Organic Chem.

Monty is the man! His tests are pretty easy and his notes rock. If you go to his office, he'll explain anything you need. He's also the coolest guy at dawson and goes the extra mile to help you out if you get to know him. Take him!

Excellent notes, explains well, funny guy. You have to really listen to him when he talks and take down what he says. However, he doesn't prepare you for the final because we finished the material two days before :S.
