Outstanding! The best teacher I ever had! inspirational, knowlegeable, great!
He is a wonderful man, one of my favourite teachers. Everything I've learned from him has been so interesting, and he's so nice too. I'll be sad to see him go.
He's very arrogant. He thinks that his writing is eloquent, but it is actually convoluted and ambiguous. Multiple choice questions are like reading comprehension exercises in and of themselves.
He is a decent teacher, but his expectations are completely unrealistic and unreasonable considering that the necessary material usually does not usually get covered before tests and exams.
He is a great educator, but a horrible marker. It is possible to get really high marks (95 ) in his class if you work extremely hard and make Bio your top priority. A good balance of strict and cool.
He is a hard marker, but you can learn a lot in his class if you try. He is defintely really passionate about Biology.
One of the hardest markers i've ever met, picky and reluctant to give out marks, Mr. D still stands as one of the best teachers i've had. You'll be so prepared after his class. could teach uni.
Amazing teacher. He knows exactly what he is talking about and can explain answers in different ways.
very intelligent and accomplished teacher, you can tell he knows what he's teaching inside and out. only issue is that sometimes he marks a bit too strictly for high school.
He's up and down, some days he can be funny, and the next day he'll be yelling at you. Knows what he wants and knows how to get it. Picky on the little things.
I don't understand many stuff that we do in gr.9 science.:(
My biggest problem is his strict grading. I realise he wants us to take it seriously but an 83 won't look well on an application. otherwise, he's a great teacher and KNOWS HIS STUFF. good univ. prep
very strict marker...you really do have to do things precisely like he asks/DEMANDS you do. but atleast you actually learn bio (unlike chem where we have no idea what we're doing)..good prep for exam
I just dont get this guy, it's high school not university so go a bit easy Deruyter, if you want to be successfull in his class better make his 12 Bio Homework first on your list.
maybe he is a little arrogant, but he's also very knowledgeable and accomplished - for goodness sake, he's written textbooks...
Hard marker, but he's a good teacher. Has many stories to tell. He's kind of arrogant and may pick some favourite students.
Koolest teacher I've ever had!:) (Except for Zanutto...)
Wow, Mr. D is probably the best teacher I've had. The man is totally amazing, understanding, intelligent... his expectations puts WAY too much pressure on you, though, to do well.
seems like a decent guy, expects WAYYYYY too much,tests are hard and are not at all what you expect. It's all applying what you know to something. and trying to
he's a great teacher and sure knows his stuff, just don't get on his bad side. helpful, but expects a lot, eh ur in gr12 bio i guess:)
A good teacher, but very hard. If he doesn't like you at the beginning of the year he never will.
gr. 9 science was harder than it had to be. but he's obviously very smart, get on his good side and you'll do fine
he really picks favourites and gives no notes. kind of arrogant too
I think he's given up on the grade 12 biology classes. we spend most classes measuring our eyes instead of doing the serious stuff like before.
I'm preparing you for university... So true. One of the best teachers I had in HS.
