His class is my favourite by far. I hated history and he somehow made me love it. Hardly any homework, just assignments. But he gives due dates and requirements in a package at the beginning of the year, which is really helpful. His classes are so much funnnnn. His accents always make me laugh and his tests are easy if you study. Super laid back and chill. Love him.

Mr. Syms is my favourite teacher of all time! He made history so much fun and I finished with a 99%, a grade I never would have gotten without a teacher like him. He is a funny and captivating speaker, he does not believe in textbooks, and he's been everywhere and knows everything! If you get Syms, you're a lucky person.

His best talent as a teacher is his personality. Nobody can say with a straight face that they did not enjoy his class. In terms of preparing you for university, clearly not the best, but thats why he teaches the younger kids. Knowing I had his class in a few hours was reason enough to go to school. He is the one who really made me love history and all that stuff. Probably the most likeable teacher in the entire school. PS Thought he was way better teaching Grade 10 history then World Religion
