Very knowledgeable, and knows anything about science, but THE MAN CANNOT EXPLAIN IT WELL FOR HIS LIFE! he is a great scientist, but a terrible teacher
I don't see why everyone complains about him. There have been successful people in his class. Sometimes people just see his name on their timetable and give up :/. Not fair to bash him. A lot of the stuff people say is biased anyway. Maybe if your friends didn't influence you, you'd have a different opinion
Overall lit dude. Lessons are sometimes confusing but teaches you independent learning. The IB syllabus will become your lord and saviour in this class.
BRUH, this is a teacher you don't want. Doesn't teacher, hands out random papers and his notes are from 2012. When you ask for an explanination, he answers it by stating a different question and what that question means. We asked him in our IB class the same question 3 times by 3 different students and each got a different answer. Don't recommend, prepare to use the textbook a lot and RIP if HL
2 Weeks into grade 11 ib chem and he still hasn't taught us a lesson without confusing the entire class. And the two lessons he gave came with long talks about soy sauce stains on his shirt and talking about his family. He forgot to tell our class that we had a quiz and assigned an assignment without explaining it and he still hasn't taught the lesson for us to complete the assignment. If you get foot, get a tutor or switch out.
Mr. Foot may have Chemistry knowledge but he surely can't explain it without confusing the whole class. He jams units and tests as well as labs at the LAST moment making everything impossible. He doesn't even teach us lessons...instead, he tells us to go online and view his useless PDFs. I, as well as the rest of the class have been teaching ourselves everything. Very unorganized and he blames the students when they are confused. He also can't monitor his own class during tests! Worst teacher!
Before Foot's class, I was told he was a super nice guy, but was terrible at teaching. I didn't think that he would be that bad. But holy crap as nice as he is, the absolute worst teacher I have ever had in my entire life. He is ridiculously unorganized, his notes are written by two year old's, his tests will sometimes have material that you wouldn't learn, he would pick on people in class, and simply cannot articulate any information he has learned. GET OUT OF HIS CLASS IMMEDIATELY.
Honestly, one of the WORST teachers at Ancaster High...followed by Mr. Taylor, who also can't teach. Since this is about Mr. Foot, I'll stick to talking about him.
Firstly, VERY unorganized. I suggest you keep amazing notes because he won't be an help. This is like the Hunger Games. You're on your own. Secondly, his lessons don't make any sense. Again, back to his organization, it's very hard to follow along. He mumbles and stumbles and his notes are probably written by his little kids.
Confusing and a useless waste of a teacher's salary - Mr. Foot proves that, while one can know a subject, that does not ensure that they are somehow good teachers. Everyone on here is right in saying that he is the most unorganized person ever. His notes are handwritten and illegible. It honestly looks like chicken scratches! Terrible teacher, cannot teach. Sad that he's the IB chem teacher. Our entire class is on the verge on failure and apparently we're the "smart ones". Avoid him at all cost!
I pray he retires early so my younger sister doesn't have to experience what I experience for a full semester in 4uchemistry. Learn how to write and update your notes.
Mr. Foot is extremely disorganized and unclear. His notes are scattered, and when he does examples, he does half the math in his head without explanation. Also, when you ask questions he makes you feel like you're an utter moron, even when it is a completely valid question. Mr. Foot may be a genius when it comes to chemistry but due to his lack of knowledge on basic english, it is almost impossible for him to ACTUALLY teach.
smfh, if you're reading this Mr. Foot, please change the way you teach, it actually hurts, I can't read your handwriting, your smartboard notes are so old, needs some revision as well, I think your career's been pretty long enough so retire is a great option fam!
He's a nice person but he's a terrible teacher. Extremely unorganized and he just does not know what he's doing. His lessons are unclear and hard to understand.. I ended up switching out.
Mr. Foot is a great man to learn from. Get on his good side and he will teach you in every way he knows how.
Easily the worst teacher I've had, and perhaps at the school. Noticed in particular (although it wasn't me) that he finds one student to be angry at the entire semester. Although extremely knowledgable, isn't willing (or able) to share this with students; lazy, and disorganized; makes up notes in illegible SmartBoard writing (and even has the gall to admit that they're incomprehensible). I am also certain he's depressed. If you are stuck, simply do not continue with sciences. It's that bad.
foots a good guy especially if you play basketball. guys really smart but disorganized so if you dont have a problem with learning stuff on your own somewhat id take him over varg for senior chems
So disorganized and can't teach for his life! He makes upo his notes on the spot and based off his own knowledge. He is quite knowledgable but can not funnel all this knowledge into terms understandab
Some people are just meant to teach. Mr.Foot isn't one of them.
mr.foot was an amazing teacher... you just had to keep up with him and not get caught up complaining about how he's unorganized. get over it... no ones perfect. good job mr.foot
ive had him for 2 years in a row..and if you pay attention and get used to the way he teaches you'll totally ace his class. you got to study and dont give him attitude and you'll ace his course :)
He is an amazing person, such a nice guy, but im sorry, he is very confusing. He is so brilliant, but he can't convey the points he makes in his head across to the students in an organized manner.
soooooooooo unorganized, and experiments messed up a lot. but a really good guy, and he tries. so i give him points for trying.
Mr. Foot is awesome plain and simple great teacher great guy!
Would spend forever talking to the boys on the sport teams in our class, but when any of the girls needed assistance with an assignment trying to get him to help you was impossible
Let me tell you a story. He gave me a 60% on an assignment because I missed a section. I walked up and showed him that it was indeed there - all 20 pages of it. I then got an 85.
if u can keep up with im he'll teach your more about science than any other teacher in the school. thanks mr foot :)
this guy would do good work in a lab studying stuff but hes the worst teacher i have had
I think Mr. Foot is a nice guy WHEN HE ISN'T TEACHING he doesn't make anything clear like when you ask a question and he REFUSES to answer and expects u 2 no
Best science teacher i think i have ever had! tough.. but fair... thanx for a great semester mr. foot
i had him for science and he's a nice guy but he could work on his teaching ethics.
Mr Foot is one of the best teachers I have ever had. If you actually pay attention in his class he can teach you so much! You're the best Mr. Foot!
umm he doesnt seem 2 kno wu hes talkin bout like he always says uhhhhhhhhhh or ummmmmm or hmmmmmm..
He's a great teacher! He's tough but he knows what he's doing and I respect that. Mr.Foot, u rock!
Umm.. well.. he's really smart and knows his stuff, but he often can't explain things well. However, if you get help from him one on one, he can really help you
Well I mean he's a pretty good teacher, but I can never really get a straight answer out of him. He really tries hard though, and outside of school he's nice.
Ok...Mr. Foot was great...sure some of his teaching tactics weren't that fun...but I mean come on!!! Give the guy a break!!! But, I do agree...that again was a bit weird pronounced!!! Lol!!!
Often this guy does not seem with it . Hard to believe this guy is a teacher.Very disappointing. His class was a real waste of time. Wished I had another teacher.
Mr. Foor was a very nice guy, but was a tough teacher
foot was great! you guys don't know what you're talking about, go 3U bio
