I loved having Larry, his takes hard concepts and dumbs them down to the point that anyone can understand the content. Plus he goes on these irrelevant rants for like 20 minutes which are hilarious. I looked forward to going to his classes. STRONGLY RECOMEND

Larry is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He is also one of the few teachers who understands that students are there to learn and so they may not know the answer to everything. He always provides very clear and step by step explanations in class and will always offer to help you if you are truly stuck. The instructions for tests and assignments are very clear and neither are very hard.

Best teacher ever, helps his students, explains labs clearly and knows how to reach out to them. However, to pass his class, you should be responsible enough to do your own work and not expect him to hold your hand.

I had Larry for introduction To Computer Technology on Lab days. he explains everything clearly and will be more than happy to help you out. I have to warn you though for flash(Multimedia And Internet), he tends to treat the subject like a business market so don't expect any favors that relate to the code explained in class and expect to do some self studying and independent learning.

He's a good teacher, but he needs to learn to not assume that I don't have friends and that I don't participate.

He's a nice guy for teaching, but needs to understand that when someone is sad or depressed, it doesn't mean that they need to go to the learning centre

If you don't get something: tell him. Otherwise, be left behind. Who's fault is that, yours or the teachers? Larry is one of the greatest, no questions asked.

Apart from being good at pretending to be nice, he's not good at much else. Doesn't teach you 3/4 of the things you see on the exams or in the projects. Then he wonders why only 3 people are passing..

People like him because he is "cool", but he is unprepared as a teacher and tends to go off-topic rants more often than he actually teaches. Tough to follow with no textbook but he is an easy marker.

Great guy, but acts like it's OK not to know half of what hes supposed to teach. Popular amongst students, helpful and fun, but far from a great teacher, thought not bad at all.

Larry was the sickest, always helped whenever I asked for it. Easy labs, easy tests; it all depends on whether or not you take down the notes, which he writes on the board.

Larry use to be the bomb! But he now likes to use phrases like "Pretend i'm your boss" and "i don't know, you find out" to push us hard which is often too much
