One of my favourite science teachers that I've ever had. His notes are extremely clear and concise and he explains everything super well. He is also really good about relating the class to his students as well as offering up amazing opportunities for his students who want to go further in biology. I would recommend him to literally anyone, he's amazing.

Mr. Shieh was my teacher for Skills back in grade 8. The one and most important key aspect of succeeding in his class is staying on task, fulfilling your responsibility as a student and be warm and cheerful when necessary. He marks you pretty easily once you get the hang of him and has a good impression on you. Would totally recommend him. Mr. Shieh, I hope you see my review.

I had him in synergy 9 for science, and then when i went into the IB program (grade 11), I was really considering bio just because i loved his class so much. A little hard tests (worked hard to get an A), but who cares, you have fun and you do learn a lot. excellent teacher and awesome personality. strict/fair but wonderful personality.

synergy science is sooo hard with him. I guess it's just synergy but still it's really hard. Science is like the hardest synergy subject. Just try your best if you have him, best of luck.

Very fun teacher. Good to joke around with! Not easy at all. His materials are very challenging but not impossible. When I entered grade 12, I actually appreciated Mr Shieh more, because the stuff he taught us so solidly in grade 10 was what we were reviewing in grade 10, with extra details we already covered. Great teacher, with a great sense of humor.

Here's a tip to everyone when it comes to his tests: Write VERY fast because he has a LOT of questions. He's also rather tough, but he is a great teacher. If you ever have questions, he'll answer them and help you until you understand.

He's a good teacher but he expects wayyyy too much from his non-IB students. He provides helpful notes but he makes all his students study his way, which is not very helpful or time efficient like the studybook or cheatsheet. Why is the cheatsheet called a "cheatsheet" when we can't use it during his hard tests???

arguably one of the best teachers in SWC's science department. detailed, easy-to-study notes, always willing to put in extra time outside of school hours to explain things, willing to let you use his classroom for ridiculous reasons, his diagrams are a bit lacking but i found that they're pretty good if you actually listen to his explanations. a picky marker, especially for tests. requires you to know and understand all the concepts he teaches but at the same time he does his best to make sure you DO get it

definitely one of the best teachers at SWC...he actually teaches! well planned out lessons, clear notes, and useful worksheets. and much as we hate to admit it, the studybooks and cheatsheets really do help with cramming before a big test. always there for extra help before tests and quizzes. very fair...even if he hates your guts, he'll still give you the help and marks that you deserve. enjoy the class, dont complain too much about the hw, and walk into class with a can of air freshener =)

What's with all the good reviews? He doesn't know what he's talking about! He's not funny, or interesting, he is a dull, dull man who is easily intimidated by his students, and doesn't TEACH merely recopies endless notes onto overhead transparencies. He turned my favourite subject (Bio) into a dull and menial course. I HATE HIS ABREVIATIONS OR SHOULD I SAY "ABREVS" His biggest skill is his colour-coordinated-underlining key word system.
