Mr. Melville is a great teacher. I had him for Civics and he's very knowledgeable. I have to admit, he is kinda scary, but he's a great person (for the most part haha). It's nice seeing him add some humour into his classes, as he engages his class easily. I strongly recommend him. It's sad to hear he's retiring this year. May he enjoy his retirement!
Great teacher. Sad that he's retiring next year :(
I am now a 3rd year university student now but i had him for gr 10 . I am rating him after all these years because he was an absolutely amazing teacher. He intimidated me at first but very soon I started to absolutely love his teaching style, his stories and how he would encourage us to do our readings before class. we also had a major lock down while we were in his class so that was quite memorable. You need to put in some effort in his class but he is AMAZING!!
Mr.Melville is a very informative teacher. He is diabetic, so his students have to get used to him eating during lessons or whenever he feels his blood sugar level is low. His sense of humour is out of this world. There was never a dull moment in his class. He is a kid at heart. His marking style is fair and provides help if asked at the right time. He detests cheaters and late comers.
One d. adv - He will embarrass you in front of the class if you do something to tick him off.
I like him as a person, but whenever I ask him for help he turns me down (unlike all of the other teachers that is). He is a great guy, but i'm kinda glad he's retiring in 2016 at the same time.
amazing teacher..just loved his random stories..made the class that much more interesting...and also very clear and pretty funny...but be prepared to work in his class and get relatively low grades...he's also kinda intimidating at times...but other than that hes an eppic teacher :D
I absolutely love his class. He makes history very enjoyable with all the interesting tidbits and stories. But, he is marks very strict. Still remember the highest mark for our first test was 81%.
Was intimidating in gr.9, but luved him in grade 10 =) awesome teacher!
Had him for civics which was probably my favourite course last year thanks to him. We had lots of class discussions, he's great.
omgsh.. He's the best teacher I've EVER had! Miss him so much!
Amazing teacher. He's actually one of the very few teachers that could make me laugh these days. All the other teachers try too hard. His course work also makes youremembertheconcepts.Econ wasablast
great teacher, very funny, his tests are fine but he's tough with essays. my fav high school teacher!
Mr.Melville is AMAZINGG! I really can't imagine having another history teacher. He is an amazing teacher and super funny. He is one of the greatest teachers at Marc Garneau.
He was my favourite teacher through high school. He's the total best
GO MR. MELVILLE !! U ARE THE AWSOMEST TEACHER EVER !! I AM THINKING OF TAKING ECONOMICS IN GRADE 12.. You noe how to make people remember u in a gud way !! u will be very lucky if u get him in garneau
The BEST !!! made history fun and he was the best at making jokes !! never fell asleep in history !! MR. MELVILLE U ROCK !!!
ideal teacher but HARD MARKER MARK EASIE AND YEAH KARMA WONT AFFECT U :P he's nice and all but marks too hard
oh he's a teacher i thoguht he was a student :O he's that good
he thinks like a sutdent that y we like him he's actually makes history interesting
Best teacher ever. He's a really funny guy, and you really do learn a lot in his class--after you get past the whole "I'll (pretend) to bite off your head for every single thing" phase.
if you have the chance, take his grade 12 economics course! i used to hate the amount of work we had to do but he REALLY prepares you well for uni
Mr. Melville's an unique teacher with a quirky personality. He may act intimidating or irrational at times but really, he's an understanding teacher and knows how to make us laugh
Great teacher. Great personality. Fun to talk to, yet knowledgeable in fields of study. If you do the work, your grades will reflect that. Recommend Grade 12 Economics
i think he is an awesome teacher! he loves to yell (yes) but only does so to make the class more entertainment..he makes learning fun. The only class I never fall asleep in!
Great, interesting teacher. Always breaks out into fact. Quite intimidating though. =]
Cool, funny teacher. Get at least one good laugh every class, even though he's super strict and likes to yell. He also has a big thing against late students and jackets...
Although he is fairly knowledgeable about his course, his personality and approach to students is highly questionable. He yells far too much. Highly recommend that you stay AWAY!
People warned me but id didn't listen thoroughly regret it now.Can't recommend especially for Gr.12 WHistory because it will lower your average.Totally prefers tops kids.Don't walk away but run FAST!
He's a very hard marker but i'm gettin a good mark n his klass , ppl say he's tough but ya got 2 do work in school don't u , so then u'll do excellent!Come on ppls!
wel..great teacher, i stil remember most of the thingz i learnt in tht klass. hez a very hard marker nd quite strict but funny..overall, hez the perfect example of how a teacher shud b..:)
I had him a long time ago, but he's still one of the most memorable teachers in the school. Comedian is the word that comes to mind - and he's pretty good in his subject!
hez a hype teacher...but sumtimez a lil too talkative jus like me...i hate history but coz of him i kinda like it now...you get to 've fun in hiz class
funny teacher, and easy to make fun of, but a hard marker!!
Melville is tuff but he makes learning History a fun experience
one of the best classes i had, easy to joke around with, hard class though, but i still remember most of the stuff he taught
Amazing teacher, but he marks REALLY REALLY hard, he cares about the students have gives them chances, but still marks really hard. Very funny guy too.
The best teacher ever!!!! Really smart, helpful and understanding. He cares about his students and is serious about his job.
likes to dance & sing even though he cant but its ok he is funny n e ways lol
