I can only dream about having him again. Boyyyyy do I miss this guy, he's literally an angel when you compare him to the several other horrendous teachers we have in the college.. You will never, ever, ever find a teacher as good as him... Just listen and do your work, you'll do great... Everything in his exams have been well explained and discussed in class, you won't get any surprises...Calculus is a hard subject to teach/learn, but trust me you won't find a much better Cal teacher than him...

Stephen was the best math teacher I've ever had, and that's saying something. He's always enthusiastic, and really cares about his students' success. He will not hesitate to put in extra time to help you understand, and he's always happy to talk about math. He uses practical examples to demonstrate mathematical concepts, and he's probably one of the teachers that spends the most time preparing his class. All in all, if you can, you should DEFINITELY take him. He was amazing.

Easily my favourite teacher at Vanier. Enthusiastic and clear. Funny, and will explain anything he knows even if it doesn't relate to class. Write in pencil (he often makes mistakes on the board).

Best teacher ever. Just don't copy down anything he writes on the board until he's revised about 10 times. He gets off track quite easily, but the tangents are always awesome.

Had him for Cal. Cool guy, very likeable, but he kinda rambles to himself and the students get lost in the lectures. I sometimes used the textbook explanations rather than his...

*Probability and Statistics* His semi-awkward humorous antics are amusing. As a teacher, I'd put him in the above-average area, although Statistics itself makes the class kind of boring at times.

Newbiggs is an awesome teacher. He is very helpful and makes people understand the material in class. This teacher loves math though and in all honesty, it's contagious. He is very funny and very thorough. Also, he knows more than he teachs, as in he can answer math-related questions that are beyond the scope of the course. He is a calculus bunny. He is the best math teacher I have ever had.

he's a great teacher and if you don't understand he'll really do everything so that you do, even using props to help visualize. he's the only calculus teacher i had that you can tell he really wants you to do well and really understand the material. and you can tell he's so into what he's teaching that you want to learn it even if you hate math

very dedicated teacher (i think he is in love with math by the way..;))his exams r okay if you study on a regular basis & do the homework! the final exam is worth 40%, which can be a little bit stressing if you didn't do very good during the semester...no cheat sheet,so you must know the formulas by heart..
