Western Civ is not the most interesting subject for most people, but Peter will get you into it, he makes corny jokes and really helps place you into the time period or subject he is talking about. He doesn't just sit at the front and lecture about history, he gets into it and makes it kinda interesting. He gives you questions ahead of exams and the essay is not bad. Take him if you don't want to fall asleep every western civ class.

This teacher is good but the only issue is that the class can be long and boring and i always felt overwelmed because he judge students on writting mistakes and not only knowing the content. English is not my first language so that was the problem. He is a good teacher hes likes what he teaches but dosebt see that other people are just here to pass and not to enjoy lol but i am very happy that i got over this class .....

TAKE HIM.
He is so fun, and his class is really easy. It's a lot of reading, but fun. He assigns a chapter per class, and you go home and take notes on specific points. Then he has in class quizzes which you can use your notes for. He drops the lowest quiz, and all the tests are essay questions. His class is really fun, because of the way he teaches, he is really funny.
I finished the class with a 95.

I had Peter for Western Civilization. Honestly, AMAZING TEACHER! He knows his stuff so well its incredible, and he's so funny too, which makes the class that much better. A lot of readings that require note taking so be prepared to spend quite a bit of time on this course outside of class but if you do your work, you can pass with crazy good grades! Lets you use your notes for quizzes!!! 5 quizzes (which he drops the lowest mark), 0 tests, 1 essay, the midterm and the final exam. TAKE HIM.

I had him for western civ. It's a boring class but he cracks a lot of jokes which helps. Be prepared to work hard, a lot of unannounced quizzes which requires a lot of reading from the book. Note-taking is a must but he doesn't force it upon you, basically he's there to help but he's not going to hold your hand through everything, it's your own responsibility to either do the work or not. Selling point: he doesn't take attendance!

Great teacher, but be prepared to work as he gives you unannounced quizzes that are based on the assigned readings in the notes. Study and you will be fine, if not, then drop the class or just don't come to school at all. Excellent for Western Civ

He is an awesome teacher! His enthusiasm and energy made the 8:30 class something to look forward to. Unless you're a slacker, you won't have any problems. He has unannounced quizzes and the questions for exams are picked at random. I would take him again if I weren't graduating. (History of the US)

He is the best history teacher ever, wish I can take him again, I had him for Western Civ and all I can say is do all of the readings and you will do well in his unannounced quizzes. He even tells you exactly what to write on the final exams, but I will warn you his tests are a bit tricky because you will need to prepare all of the study questions because he will select few of them randomly. Not recommended if you are a slacker though
