He ran AP chemistry tutorials without the actual course running, which saved my chemistry mark at U of T. He has a passion for his career which is why he has stayed well beyond his earliest potential retirement date. Long live Mr. Charles!

He loves what he teaches, loves the students, students love him. Honestly helped us grow not only as students but also grow into adults and become more mature. Very understanding, easy to get help outside of classes. If you read a section ahead in class you will be able to answer all of his questions. He really prepares you for university and develops your work habits. Another review said he only cares about smart kids. That's totally not true. Have you ever asked for help or even tried?

If you're following along, doing the homework he assigns, and ask him for help when you need it then you can pass his class. He is an amazing and funny teacher. I stayed in Chemistry in order to be in his class because he's such a cool guy. Chemistry is hard to understand but he makes it so clear and fun to learn. He is so nice. No one can hate him. LONG LIVE CHARLES.

So I went to a Strip Club in Toronto the other night and guess who i saw there. It was Farley Charles with hundreds of 5 dollar bills. So the Stripper goes in a hot pose, Farley smiles and pours himself a glass of ethanol alcohol. Farley said "Welcome to the 5 Dollar Club" and they went into a private room. Not sure what happened then but i guess he gave her a brofist.

doesn't teach. he asks questions then corrects your answer. he expects you to know things without informing you. he should take the time he uses to make jokes to explain things thoroughly before expecting people to know what is going on.

worst science teacher i ever had. liked him outside of science but as a teacher horrible, only cared about smart kids did little to nothing for the kids who actually needed his help, don't have him this year and now he's cool but he was a bad teacher when I had him very unclear and difficult.

Having Mr. Charles as your teacher is alright but his tests are really hard and tricky. But overall he is a good teacher. Make sure your always reviewing notes before entering his class because he will always review what he did last class. He really enjoys doing labs to demonstrate the things he has taught you. You can always go to him for extra help when he isnt busy. But all in all if your the dedicated type than you will have no problem in his class when you put the time to complete the work.
