If you are the kind of student who plans to do well... do not be in his class. He never shows up and always leaves. Never fully teaches lessons nor explains them. Gives you no notes to use for the exam. Talks more about sports then math, and wastes half the class going on and on about hockey. Never has things marked on time nor keeps his promises about his marking. Can't explain anything he teaches and just gives answers. I DO NOT RECOMMEND HIM FOR ANY STUDENT WANTING TO DO WELL IN HIGH SCHOOL!

Sure, he's knowledgeable, and often brings up that he was an engineer, but that doesn't help his teaching. I felt like in both classes he taught me, calculus and data management, I never really knew what I was doing. I was simply parroting back what he had shown without the faintest idea of what was actually going on - and this is coming from a pretty strong math student.

Decent teacher and quite knowledgeable of maths content. However, he needs to be more clear and concise in his lessons to ensure that the class understands the concepts to a strong degree. He must improve on his examples and go into more depth.

well i can safely say, he is not meant to be a math teacher..if you want to do well...get out of his class as fast as you can. He's a great coach on the field, but keep him away from the classroom.
