Jim Burke is the physics god, he knows what he's talking about. I had a great experience in physics 11 & 12 and received any help I needed. He's currently the only teacher so far that has made an effort to prepare us for university, which is great. Definitely one of my favorite teachers! :)

His teaching method is very fast paced, I was fine with this although if you needed help; you best hope you have a low top and are a female. Good luck

Guy knows his stuff. For all you people who say his class is too hard then you should probably do some work cause anyone who actually did the work and payed attention will want to thank him if they are now involved with physics in some way.

One of the best teachers I have ever had, I had him grade 11 and 12, smartest funniest guy I have ever met. Do your work pay attention and study and you will not regret it. He tells it like it is and prepares you for whats coming up.

Great teacher. Hilarious, sometimes sneaky with the way he'll joke with you. Everything well explained, and Physics 11 was taught like a college level course. His 11th grade physics class was hands down the most fun I'll ever have in a class. Mr. Burke is definitely one of the best teachers I've ever had and I'll miss that class! Can't wait for Physics 12 :)

Mr Burke was a great physics teacher. He really got into his subject and got excited about what he was teaching. Though he moved a bit fast at times, it was an enjoyable challenge

Sick finger Jim, I guess physics wasnt on your side there. If you are a girl, and you are remotely good looking, you will enjoy Jim as a teacher. If not, you are screwed!

Mr. Burke was a great teacher. He made physics easy to understand, but at the same time he challenged all of his students. He really prepared me for university.

If you want to take physics in university, Jim's your man. I got an A in engineering physics this year mostly because of what he taught, and how well he taught it, in grade 12.

He's cool. Does physics and what have you. He might keep "burning" me way too much for a teacher, but oh well. "Variables are our friends."
