I had him for chemistry and he was great. Super nice person who is very knowledgeable about what he teaches and is highly sympathetic and flexible towards due dates and chances for tests. Honestly he breaks it down to the basic steps and I sometimes got very confused because although he breaks it down he's so knowledeable the content to be known becomes a bit overwhelming, but asking him for help one on one after class or during his free time will help you immediately and understand concepts. A+

Doctor Magwood is an incredible teacher. His knowledge is encyclopedic and he teaches with immense depth and clarity. Conversely, his tests and exam are easy. Highly recommended for any science class.

Dr. Magwood is one of those teachers that you know will be awesome from the moment you walk into class on the first day. He is so thorough in explaining everything, and his class will be a breeze if you listen, which is easy to do because he is so knowledgeable about science.

Great nice teacher. Always willing to help you when you need it. Can be a little confusing when he teaches, since his chalkboard notes get messy and his handwriting isn't the neatest. Can take a very long time to mark if it isn't scantron. Would recommend for gr. 11 chem at least.

Dr.Magwood is the best teacher that I've ever had, well at least among the teachers I had in that semester. He is knowledgeable and willing to help you and you struggle. Truly an angel. He is kinda geeky if you meet him at first, but you'll soon find out he is quite hilarious. Hope to have him in the future :)

Dr. Magwood is an awesome teacher. Definitely knows his stuff and cares a lot about his students. If you approach him, he'll always be helpful. He never hands anything back and is quite disorganized but he makes up for it with his knowledge!

very smart, wants his students to succeed, yet taught very quick-moving and complicated lessons that often only half the class could follow

Amazing teacher! Oh man I wish he could have been mu university chem professor! He is with no questions asked a great person. Magwood is really wants everyone to do well in his class, and he is really laid back, but at the same time pushes everyone to learn. He teaches like your in uni, he has that style! If you need a gr.12 chm credit..go with magwood, go the work, come in for extra help, and trust me you will love him!
