Hilarious and helpful. He always modifies lessons to be about what the class is interested in. He has a passion for teaching and always gets excited about showing the class videos and whatever else (and we watched some cool stuff like The Matrix), even if he has taught these same classes for years.

I absolutely love him and miss him :) he is a very knowledgable teacher, not just about psychology but about most arts related subjects. he is super sweet, hilarious, and genuinely cares about students doing well. he will give you extra help, opportunities to re-do assignments, and is always open to questions. rarely uses the textbook and instead relies on open discussion which makes people actually listen to what he is saying. He is also just an amazing person, inside and out <3

Best teacher at MCI, he genuinely cares about all his students even the disengaged ones. He has funny stories and also the best taste in music/movies/anything really. His classes are interactive and open to discussion. Love this man

Best teacher at MCI. Probably the only one who cares about kids succeeding over anything. There is no excuse for getting a low mark in his class; all his explanations are clear and relatable and he gives you opportunities to rewrite assignments. Sometimes struggles with benign classes, but he's a funny guy and a great teacher in small environments.

Mr. Maxwell is such a blast! The class discussions that he starts are so intriguing and thoughtful, it makes everyone want to participate. He is incredibly smart and knows psychology left, right, and centre. Fair guy, he makes tests clear and always looks to help students who are having trouble getting a topic. Maxwell gives you some of the best preparation for University Psych and by the end of the year you'll be glad you took his course.

Mr. Maxwell is an actor. Being in his class is like watching a performance. He is absolutely funny and knowledgeable. His class starts off with his 40 mins of rambling, but I always died laughing. He prefers presentations than homework.

Great guy, great teacher, great mind. In my experience with him, he was incredibly sincere and really cared about the students. (He did like to mess with our heads every once in a while) I find he always had a method to his madness, and even when he's giving a student a hard time he's doing it because he's trying to point something out to them. He's also got an immense amount of knowledge and pulls reluctant students into the course material, and shows them why what they learn is important.

Class is a zoo, could have his own cult if he wanted, most of his former students would take a bullet for him. Will take the ideas as far as you're willing to go, but it's up to you to maintain rigor.
