Probably the only teacher in the school who actually gets you ready for university. His tests may not be easy but his marking is extremely fair and compensates for the harder tests. His test questions are not purely "plug and chug" which triggers select students who probably shouldn't be continuing their post secondary education. If you want the full Davies experience I would recommend signing up for his enriched courses as the material presented in this course is much more useful later on.

Seems to be carrying Kits sciences these days now that Mclaren is gone, one of the best in terms of actual ability to explain material, interesting personality and sense of humour.

He is kind of mean to students. He teaches too fast sometimes can't understand. His labs don't make sense. But he knows a lot...

He's fine, but I HATE how he doesn't let us write anything! Every other teacher in the world lets/makes students take notes, but he doesn't think we'll learn that way. you'd think after 12 years of sc

one of the few teachers who understands that the purpose of school is to learn, and not to get marks.

My turning point started in his class. I really like his class, because he teaches stuff deeper than the curriculum. His classes are not really that hard. They're simply intriguing. Definitely the best physics teacher ever!

Excellent teacher if you can handle a fast pace and are on time. He definitely has favorites but your mark won't reflect whether he likes you or not.
