Hard to comprehend , only does examples in class. If you want to pass to all the homework he assigns and learn the material by yourself or from someone else. You might not understand his notes either and what he is saying. His tests are fairly easy !! but you have to study

very good looking, and is super funny. he may seem to be a fresh indian off the boat, yet he has the best english-canadian accent ever. he is very social in the class, and is always available to answer any question you may have. i have never met someone who is as smart and intelligent as this man. people say he is the worst, but that is because they do not attend his class or do his work.i sincerely recommend you take this course with him. he is one of the best teachers in vanier.

Easiness: He erases everything as he writes. Helpfulness: Lacks patience with students and humilates the students' question. Clarity: Never repeats what he says and speaks in Anglo-Indian, even people from India don't understand his teachings. I recommend not taking this course with this teacher, or else find a tutor immediately. If your an Indian or brown, avoid at all cost. He usually takes advantage on humiliation on us. He even humilates others as well. Good luck, if you have him. Be careful

He's from Rajastan, India. By all means, he doesn't have patience with students that Indians and other parts of South Asia. Be aware, if you are an indian, he will humilate you. He even humilates everyone. As an Indian-Canadian, I don't understand what he says and he doesn't answer our questions. When he writes on the board, he erases everything at the same time. Start getting a tutor or drop this course. He's never there to help us, even when we show respect. His final exam is worth forthy%.

One of the easiest cal 1 teacher at Vanier. However, you won't learn anything from him so be ready to study on your own. Take him if you are already good at math and understand quickly. Good thing is that he does not give mark for homeworks.

He's funny, but never ask him a question. He will humiliate you, and he ignore his students. He doesn't care about our bright futures. If you have him as a teacher, I recommend you to get a tutor and pratice his homework everyday. He's never there to help his students. He's indian and he makes fun of other indians as well. He made a girl cry once in class. I recommend you to sit in the of the class, so he won't come near to ask you random questions.

He has an accent, but as time goes by, you get use to it. As long as you listen in class and do the homework, you'll do fine. His tests are easy but long and he is a fair marker. His notes are clear.

In his Cal1 classes I almost fell asleep (so as did many other students), so monotonous were the lectures.It happened often that the students (even the whole class) had to ask 3x the same Q on an example on the board and the teacher gave 3x the same answer or unclear answer.His method of teaching: write theorem on board(without a clear explanation) the give example after example.If the class does not understand the example he says "ill give u another example & u will understand".It didnt work

He is funny...sometimes.His exam have no surprises sometimes he even takes problems from the book so if u did the homework at least one third u'll get an 85+ Explains very well in front of the class, easy to understand never late in material.There is no much stress .But if you just don't get math generally don't take him personal appointments are useless. If you are okay with math hurry and choose Dr.About accent :first few classes u are sitting with big eyes but after u get used .
