Two years of fun. Oliver knows what he is doing for sure, and teaches his students with passion. Although the tests were hard I felt little pressure in the class. Great class. Great Teacher.

Absolutely one of the best teachers I have ever had! He is so calm, patient and helpful all the time. He prepares his students very well for the provincial and AP exam. His teaching style is very college oriented.

I had Mr. Oliver for 2 years, and I will admit that he knows his stuff and tries to be interesting. However, sometimes he wasn't very kind one-to-one, and he seems to only like students that do quite well.

His tests are NOT hard as long as you study what is expected on the tests (which is explained in a nice dandy chapter worksheet that he lays out for you quite obviously). The best bio teacher, makes me love the course.

Has a sense of humour and explains his stuff well. But he gives out a lot of projects, but they don't count a lot as part of the final mark.
