He is a good teacher, but you need to listen in class if you want to pass! He is sometimes unclear in his explanations. It is always a good idea to go see him on his office hours.

Maybe it's just the subject that's hard, or maybe it's 'cause his notes are lacking when it comes to depth, but I had a hard time with him for mechanics. If you want to have fun in his class, count the number of times he says 'ok'.

I had him for Computer Physics. It's really an easy class because since it's not one of the core classes, he tends to be an easy marker. He wants everyone to pass this class. The tests and quizzes can be a lot harder (like his physics classes haha). Pretty cool for a last semester class, but you won't really learn anything. If you want to learn more about coding, the Computer Mathematics class is a better option, but there are certainly a lot of assignments.

the last guy doesn't make sense, this teacher is very helpful and although the material covered in Physics might make you feel belittled, this teacher makes physics fun and interesting!

There is no other way to do well in his class but to do the problems and go see him every time you need help. Seems scary at first but really, this guy is SUCH a softie. He goes off on tangents a lot.

So much to say in so little space. I would not recommend him for many reasons. First, he likes to terrify you. That is his teaching method. And it might work for you, but it didn't for me.

Varfalvy seems very intelligent and he expects the very best from his students. But don't worry. Varfalvy is gonna boost the marks, or else more than half the class would fail.
