Amazing math teacher, extremely knowledgable in the subject. Although some say he isn't helpful and just plays MHS videos, if you need help, just ask and he will explain very carefully and thoroughly. Makes math is easy and there isn't much of a work load, so the class is easier if you have a good work ethic. Pretty funny too.
Great teacher, do your work and pay attention and you will ace his class.
I was in Nield's class for grade 10 and now grade 11. I always struggled in math, but with Nield I really understood everything. He doesn't just show you the mechanics, he shows you why it works and how it relates to what you already know. He challenges you a lot, but really wants you to succeed. The pace was fast, but he spent 2 months preparing us for the final exam. I was actually smiling during the final as I understood every question and got 98%. If you want to do well, take his class.
Mr. Nield is a great guy, really, but he only shows us videos. He basically lets the smart ones succeed, and everyone else to struggle. I just zone out during class now without even meaning to, I just know that I won't understand any of the things he is teaching. He never answers questions from some people, leaving us behind, scratching our heads wondering what to do. I'm trying so hard but I've given up because while Nield is super smart (HE CREATED MHS) he doesn't actually teach anything.
I don't really like Nield's teaching style at all, but he is a pretty funny and likeable teacher socially. But his teaching style is sooo laid back... for some subjects, he will find them personally easy and essentially just teach us through MHS, letting the smart kids succeed on their own and everyone else to struggle.. keeping the class average where he likes it. He also does NOT give us enough tests, so one failure = end of your life, potentially. If he actually taught he'd be amazing.
I had Mr. Nield for all three years (9 10 and 11) and I really do think I was let down. He really does know his stuff, he created MHS ffs. However his teaching methods leave much to be desired. It is extremely easy to get lost in his class and he is quite an intimidating teacher so if you get nervous asking questions you could be in trouble. He also assigns very few tests which is a double edged sword. One screw up on a test and you could be screwed for the rest of the term.
He honestly doesn't teach. He literally shows videos the whole time. Great congrats if that's the way you can learn, but learning difficult material in math is unable to be correctly explained through a video. I struggled in his class and now I struggle on every single test I get, because we never once had a legitimate test in his class, other than the final. So thank you mr. Neild for showing us the extremely useless videos and being the most condescending teacher ever..
Mr. Neild is popular with many students because his class is a joke and he gives next to no tests all year long... He is lazy and his only tool for teaching is using math help services which i can do at home. His class is a waste of time and im not sure what he gets paid for since he doesn't teach...he's also very condescending, i do not recommend him
Unlike some other teachers, he truly understands what he's teaching. Instead of just teaching formulas and assigning work, he's able to actually let you learn. He actually cares about making sure that any student can understand math, as opposed to teaching for the sake of his job. Funny, enjoyable class too- it was some good times.
I have heard of Mr Nield by reputation for several years, that he is the best teacher people have ever seen. My daughter is in his class this year and his reputation is definitely well earned. She was
Best Math teacher,you'll learn more than anything other. Funniest guy !
Mr Nield has saved my life in school. I used to hate math before I entered his class. Now I get not only enjoy it, but I understand it and am at the top of the class. He is the best I've ever seen.
Just watched Waiting For Superman and it made me think of Nield. Mr Nield saved my education - he has a way of teaching you and motivating you without you even recognizing how much you're learning.
Really nice guy, but can sometimes fail to explain things.
Nield has a way of making things seem fun even when they're ridiculously hard. He is the best teacher I've ever had.
Second week of Cal 1 and I just realized how much Nield taught me. Thanks Nield, you made it fun and I know more than everyone else sitting around me
Mr Nield challenged me to become a good student. I'm in pre-med now, that never would have happened without Nield turning me onto education. Everyone should hope to have a teacher like Nield!
I'm really going to miss Nield. I've learnt more from him than I could hasve asked. Definitly one of my fav teachers. Math was my favorite subject because of him.
When you're in his class, you get the feeling that you can get along just doing nothing. Easy class, but the marking system is bad. Take as many notes as possible, because you won't get an explanation
I'll admit thats he's quite funny and very popular among the students at the school, but he doesn't teach. I never understood the subject and stuggled the next year. If only he would help us understan
I love you Mr. Nield!!! Greatest math teacher you can get, he's one of my idols, alongside Steve Irwin and Gunther Von Hagens.
Makes regular appearances in my dreams. Learnt much. Grade-A-Swirly-Master.
He is great. He teaches very well and he is so funny.
MR. NIELD IS THE BEST TEACHER THAT EVER EXISTED!!!! WE BARELY DO ANY WORK OR ASSIGNMENTS YET I LEARN MORE WITH HIM THEN ANY OTHER MATH CLASS! HE TEACHES BUT MAkING FUN OF PPL AND IT WORKS! HES SO FUNN
I love Mr.Neild! yes he is harsh on kids who slack off but he is a wonderfull teacher and i wouldnt have passed math if it wasnt for him
hilarious, thats the#1 thing. He also makes you feel motivated and like you can actually amount to something. underneath his tough exterior is an amazing and brilliant man
Mr Neild is like the greatest teacher this earth ever made.... He helped me get through 536 with a 97% avrage... and i completely love him for it... Thank you sooo much sir...
Nield is extremely cool, very funny. He's great at teaching Math, and he gives people nicknames, throws chalk at people, and is awesome.
Mr Nield is the greatest teacher to ever teach any subject ever!!! He makes math class the most exciting period of the day. Thanks for everything sir!
no one with legitimacy to their opinions actually thinks Nield is a bad teacher... that's probably the most concise rating I can give about him. Easily one of the most inspiring teachers I've had.
He is without out a doubt the best teacher i have ever had in all my years of high school. He explains it very well if u say u have trouble, his tests are hard but he prepares u well
Mr. Nield is one of the Hardest teacher I've ever had but he knows how to prepare you and that is why hes hard!
oh boy, mr.nield, tough but hilarious, made math worth going too, my favorite teacher out of hudson
Mr. Nield was so damn helpful....hell, i got the second best mark, and i barely did anything.
mr Nield is the COOLEST teacher you'll ever get. and u learn so much in his class! u are my idol nield.
He makes you work like a slave in class, but he's the best math teacher a kid could have.
Peter Nield is the GOD of math... Helps ALOT for Calculus
hes great,...funny...but allways makes fun of students,.he made fun of one kid cause of his mistaken word, the "whale plant"
By far best teacher at H.H.S (or westwood, if you're a jerk) pokes fun at people, but isn't serious about it, makes everything really clear
Neild is a the best math teacher, always willing to help outside of class, got me through 436!
Very good notes, difficult tests. Prepared so well that I got 98% on my final in 536
not helpful, rude, only gives attention to the popular people!funny ...at others expence
BEST TEACHER I have ever had!! bottom line. most helpfull, clearest, easiest to learn with. Tests are real hard though.436 was a breeze with him
Nield was maybe one of the hardest, but definitely the best teacher I've ever had, learned more with him than any other teach. Nield rocks!
AMAZING TEACHER! I can't even put it into words. He is the one person who makes everything make sense.
mr.nield is a great teacher! he's helped me a bunch this year!
