Decent enough at teaching the content in his lessons. Doesn't listen properly or communicate with his students. Has favourites which hinders his ability to teach. Sometimes talks way too fast. Needs to work on his manners when addressing students. Sometimes he was just rude.

Students who do not like him are students who do not try in his course. He's such a nice teacher who will stay after school everyday until you understand something. Not the easiest teacher but he really did prepare me for grade 12. Love u sir!!!!

HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE TEACHER! I am going to fail his course none hates me and is rude to me I don't like him at all he never leaves me alone when you ask him nicely. He doesn't let you talk to your partner very strict on uniform called me out for wearing hockey socks sent me down to the office multiple times. If you have I highly suggest switching he can't teach and he isn't helpful or nice he makes learning difficult if you don't want to fail math switch.

Not a bad teacher I Finished with a 60 but towards the end I did pretty good, I learned in his class that if I work hard I can do good in Math. I went on to get 80s in grade 11 and 12, (woke me up)

I'll start by saying he's a very nice guy. With that said, he's not so helpful math-wise. He's not a guy that'll sit and go over your weaknesses, it's more like 'ask a question, answers it, go home'

He is a really nice teacher, and he is a big help for math! You have to appreciate him more. He gives a lot of helpful handouts to help you, and is always available after class. Just doing his job.
