Hes an ok teacher but slightly boring. I did not enjoy the topics at all and he is sort of monotone. Do not take him if you get bored easily because you will fall asleep. But overall nice guy.

A fantastic teacher! Took him for his "Sword and Sorcery" class, and while I wasn't particularly interested in the stories, he made the class enjoyable. He is very knowledgeable and super friendly, always responds professionally and helps with any questions regarding essay. Would 100% recommend!

I had him for Intro to College English. Good teacher, knows what he is talking about and stories and books that we read were interesting. However, surprise tests and regular tests were unrealistically hard. Even if you read the assigned pages, you could still manage to get 0.

Amazing teacher! Had him for the Romantic Tradition : Westerns, Fantasy and Science Fiction. He really takes an interest to his students and clearly enjoys his work. He always has activities and we watched at least 8 movies throughout the semester. I definitely recommend his class.

I took him for "Thunder and Lighting" and because of elections we had a sub one out of two classes. The sub was awful but Patrick was really good. He is really really nice and his tests are not too hard. There is a lot of readings to do but keep up with the work and you'll do fine. I really liked him and although the class got boring at times, the subject was really interesting.

Patrick can be a bit dry at times, but he does have a low key sense of humor. He cares and does everything in his power to make sure you pass. Pretty nice if you go to office hours and gives lots of time to prepare for assignments. His essays sometimes look easy, but he grads them hard. Put in the effort and there's no problems.

One of nicest teachers. Took him for Hockey Is Everything and it was a very easy class but sometimes got pretty boring. There is quite a bit of reading but the tests and essays are easy and straightforward. He does take presence every class but you do a lot of group work in class. You also watch a couple of movies. It's a pretty decent class. I'd recommend taking him.

Nice person, very understanding, but his class bored me to tears. Wayy too much work, and I'm not a slacker at all, but there were 5 big essays/projects and you could barely catch your breath, as soon as one was handed in, another one was assigned. Easy marker though, and he gives tons of bonus assignments at the end of the semester to boost your grade!

I don't understand why this teacher's rating is so high. Yes he's a nice person and is understanding if you aren't able to hand something in on time, and he doesn't mind if you're late BUT his class is brutal. It's very boring and there is SO much homework and reading! It's almost like he thinks he's the only class you're taking so he can give you tons of work :(
