Amazing and very passionate professor. Had him for Human Brain and Intro to Psych. TBH the only "higher education" level class I've got in CEGEP, others feel just like AP highschool class. His is really informative and has a university feel. Scientific approach to psychology. Will make you love and want to learn psych. He made me change career paths. Also, wonderful friend. Only morning class I will ever be fully awake to.

I had him for his ''Human Brain'' class. You must study and work a little bit more to have a good grade in this class, since his assignements are long and his exams have a lot of content. However, he is very passionate about what he is teaching, but I found the class kind of boring at times. I still recommend him.

He's a good teacher, easy marker and is available one on one. However in class, he teaches the material too quickly, and the exams are extremely difficult(multiple choice and brain diagrams to identify parts of the brain). However, he gives you the take home exam to do at home so that it can boost your average.

Stuart is a great teacher! I took him for the "Human Brain" level 2 social science class. The class was very interesting (if you're into the anatomy and physiology of the brain) but a lot of work has to be put into memorizing everything. His tests are about 90 multiple choice question (ranging in difficulty) and the last 40 questions are about locating areas of the brain. He also uses brain models and you have to be able to name all the areas. Overall, great class! But very time consuming...

I had Stuart for Human Brain and I can tell you that he's suitable for that course, it's not his fault that Human Brain is a very difficult course to do well in, there's lots of memorizing involved, and the exams are hard because of the course content, but not the teacher himself. Overall, he's great.

A wonderful teacher. Like the rest say, extremely passionate about Psychology and it shows when he is teaching. Friendly, understanding, funny, and expressive. Would definitely retake. Exams consist of simple essay questions and multiple choice questions-- review the material and you will pass with amazing results.

I loved taking Stuart. The material is a bit complicated, but the way he teaches makes it easier to understand. He has a lot of extra readings available for you interest if you need them (I never touched the stuff) and he is very approachable. The one thing to keep in mind is you have to be a fast note-taker. He lectures and you often miss things here and there, he often jumps back and forth from points as well. But the notes are in-depth and very good for the tests.

Do not takes his classes if you are planning on skipping a lot. All you have to do to get above 90 is show up to all the classes. I didn't even study that much just paid attention in class and ended up with a 92 in his intro to psych class. And honestly I don't know why you would wanna skip he's really passionate about psych and makes the classes really interesting. The only homework is weekly assignments but you could honestly do them in 2 minutes before you walk into class.

I really enjoyed his human brain class, if you do the work you will get decent grades, if you are actually interested and work hard you will get GOOD grades but if you don't study and don't keep up with the work don't even BOTHER to come to class. Teacher is great, he loves what he teaches and he is always available to students! Take this class if you are willing to work, it is worth it!

Very passionate about the material he teaches, and his assignments are very straightforward and short for his Intro class. Easy multiple choice exams with a short answer segment that, if you know your stuff, will get you a decent grade. Only problem that was encountered was that of one of the major 8% assignments being harshly marked and the class not truly understanding what they did wrong. Really nice person who wants to help you learn, though.
