best teacher ive ever had!extremely helpful!listen and concentrate in class, turn in assignment and youll do well!
Mr. Cowan is a god send. He is literally the best teacher you could ever imagine in your mind. His notes are excellent, his lectures are never boring, he is so understanding and a loving guy. He is super nice to everyone and want you to succeed and understand his class. I will never forget the things he taught me in Psychology, his tests were long but easy as long as you payed attention in class and went over your notes at least once.
I had Cowan about 8-9 years ago and to this day his course, knowledge, and kindness still resonate with me. He was very relatable and always provided interesting examples to keep you engaged.
Cowan also provided emotional support for me when he could see me struggling in my personal life. I hesitated to say too much because I didn't want to treat him like a therapist, but his efforts to help me meant a lot.
A great teacher and person.
Great teacher who is tough but fair. Our class was lazy with lots of students showing up late or skipping. the other class was much better apparently, and that's not his fault. He always kept class interesting and entertaining. we ran out of time at the end a bit but he held an extra class to finish. Knows his subjects really well and gives people lots of chances to improve or catch up. Loved his classes.
he continues to say that the reason why we didn't finish the course is because we show up late to class. three people constantly show up late, and a majority show up on time to every class. The real reason is that he cancelled too many classes, and he goes off topic a majority of the time!
Excellent teacher - his classes are challenging, but informative and interesting. He really makes an effort to present the material in a professional yet not overbearing way. Tests are long, but easy
Ok..how does this guy know so much? I mean - hes a freakin' genius! Great teacher. Take his classes...any of them. You wont be sorry
Great teacher. He speaks in a way that's interesting about subjects that are generally not. Tests are hard, but he marks fairly.
Amazing teacher. extremely engaged in the course material and the class. Often goes off on tangents that are both interesting and helpful.
nice guy but asks questions on tests that we have never even heard of....
A teacher who will do as much as possible to help a student out. he values hard work, respect, but also a sense of humour and student involvement. School would have been hard without his guidance.
He is an amazing teacher! He taught me so much in life, writing, and school, without knowing how much I appreciate it. A very chill and understanding teacher! He marks fairly, you need to work hard.
seriously my favourite teacher ever, he makes me love all my subjects so much more and keeps the class alert and awake. most amazing teacher ever.
Best teacher ever. Like, straight up. Nothing bad to say about him at all. Everyone has a minor crush on him, straight up.
This teacher is hilarious...strange combination of being serious and wacko! I can't tell if he is a genius or just nuts, but hey...he's teaching Psych so it's all good.
Show up, work hard, you'll do well. However he was hard sometimes to understand what I could improve on. Felt like I was stuck with the same grade average in the two classes I had with him. Smart guy
Favourite teacher. Do the work. Participate. You'll do well. Don't be lazy!
Some students mistake his confidence and knowledge for arrogance but I have never had a more kind and enthusiastic teacher. Students who came, listened, participated and turned stuff in did well.
Students who don't like him don't like work and won't do well in university. He could give a bit more feedback but he is so knowledgable and a great lucturer that feedback comes IN class. Loved him!
great guy... but give SO much work. i would never take him again
My favorite teacher in my entire educated life, he helped me raise my mark from a mid 60's to a high 80, I had him 2 classes in a row in one day, and i was never bored the entire 4 hours he taught me
awesome teacher no doubt needs to be MORE ORGANIZED!!!
Mr. Cowan is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He is a hard but fair marker, he is clear, and I learned a lot from his class.
Fantastic teacher, however, very slow and difficult marker. Easily distractd by tangents, but has lots of interesting information to share.
A good teacher, who clearly has favorites and he suffocates them with special attention. He listens to his students and tries incrediably hard to help anyone who needs it.
he's a overall good teacher..hard marker but a great teacher...he explains everything in detail..but at times he explains it in sooo much details it gets annoying and boring
Makes you responsible for your own learning - answers questions well and makes clear presentations. If you are lazy you will find his more mature style tough
Without a doubt the most intelligent, helpful, and hip teacher in school. His exams are tough and he expects a lot of you, but he is always fair.
I like his classes. He says things that shock you sometimes! Tuff cookie, but fair. Get used to reading more than you usually do...
Super nice, and smart!! He is good at explaining difficult stuff.
Mr.C relates to us young students. Apparently. But no he is really lenient and helpful. It's hard to find a teacher like him! He helps out with any problems
He is my favourite teacher. He shows cool movies, and is patient and friendly.
