Took him for Brain and Behavior. He's a very nice person and explains very well. If ever you need help he's there to answer and to help you with your paper. Easy marker for the essay in my opinion. Pretty easy class in general (if you do well on your first multiple choice exam you don't need to do the second one). TAKE HIM !!!!!

I took his Brain & Behaviour class. He's a great teacher and he takes his time if you ever need help or if you're ever struggling in his class he will help you. Attendance is not mandatory, but I highly suggest it because it will really help when you have to write the exam. Also, do the readings!! If you go over his powerpoints and read the readings when you're supposed to, the exam will be a breeze! Had a great semester with a great teacher, if you have the chance to take him : TAKE HIM!!

I only have positive things to say about Frank Winstan! His dedication to his students and his willingness to help is very refreshing. All semester long we wrote a research essay; he will go to any length to make sure you have the information and help you need. He is very clear about his instructions, he is very knowledgeable about the content he teaches. All in all, he is certainly one of the best teachers I have taken at Vanier College! TAKE HIM!

He is an amazing teacher! I had him for Brain and Behaviour and I really enjoyed this class. The exam was very easy; especially if you study you can get 100%. The paper we had to right was very interesting and he allows resubmissions for all the steps leading up to the paper. It is very easy to get a very good mark as long as you do all the required work. Overall, I had a great semester, did amazing in the class and I really recommend you take him as a teacher!

He's a very nice teacher. He always posts the notes up on lea in case you ever miss class, he even prints out the notes for you so you save printing credits! His exams are exactly what he specifies you to study for, so you can pretty much get a 100 on exams if you study well. Another good thing is he allows you to redo an assignment or essay and resubmit it for a better grade. Overall a very nice teacher who is always in a happy mood when he does his lecture. Highly recommended.

BEST TEACHER I EVER HAD. He created his class in a way for students to succeed, he specifies exactly what to read from the book for tests and legitimately asks question 100% related on what he told u to study from the book. Attendance isnt mandatory, I attended half the classes and ended with a 89.

Even though it isn`t mandatory to attend class, he definitely remembers who attends and who doesn`t and it makes the biggest difference when it comes to giving participation marks and marking your essay. He`s extremely interesting and knows what he`s talking about.

Amazing teacher. One of the best at Vanier. The subject isn't all that interesting but his lectures are enjoyable. He puts all the notes online so you don't have to take notes. All the tests are multiple choice, the kind where you can get over 90 just by being in class. Best intro Psych. teacher.

Excellent teacher. Explains topics very well. Jokes with class and makes it enjoyable. Puts all notes up online and makes amazing review sheets for exams. His exams are easy if you study, if you fail it's not because he didn't give you what you needed to know. Marks essays/papers fairly and always has fun videos or stories for class. Take him for any pscyh class, it's worth it.
