Nicolson is a hilarious teacher and he'll usually help you out. You gotta prepare a lot for his exams and tests though, otherwise you're toast.

He's smart and knows his stuff. Doesn't teach to much in his classes either so your not overwhelmed with information. One of the best classes.

He's laid back and knows his stuff really well. If you have a question, he'll answer it and then some. He's really thorough and smart. However, kids somethimes think that means he's an easy marker, which he isn't. You need to earn your grade in his class, even if he's friendly with you. One of the best teachers I've ever had :)

I heard Nicholson used to be a university teacher, which would make sense because he teaches his class as if they were in a lecture hall. He writes looooooooong notes on the board and gives plenty of study material. The course is hard, but he's friendly and helpful. He'll also tickle, hence the nickname Mr. Tickleson.

I don't know why everyone says he's an easy marker, because he's definitely not. He acts very unprofessional towards students as well, and his tests are hard.

Nicolson is one of the smartest teachers that I have ever had. You can ask him anything and he will always have an answer. He really makes sure that his students do well in the class. He prepares you so well for the tests that it is almost impossible to get lower than a 90% in his class. I miss talking to him everyday, I trust him with my life. Love this guy!!!
