This teacher has the biggest complex I've ever had the pain to experience. He will bully you if you are anything but the top of your class. Good luck to anyone who is taking his classes, you'll need it
Amazing all-around teacher. Gets the best out of the students
Such an amazing teacher. Great sense of humour and makes Chemistry interesting. Very picky when it comes to marking but he makes it very clear what he's looking for. Goes above and beyond to make sure that students understand everything not only by taking up every homework question in class and explaining the lessons thoroughly, but spends the lunch hour in his class to give students extra help. Can't say enough good things about him.
Very fair teacher & makes you learn a lot! Wickeddddd sense of humour hahaha
Elford is strict, yes. But he's fair. I respect his teaching and learned well from him. I can't wait for grade 12 chem and all the precise definitions for terms... (okay that part was sarcastic but, overall I like him)
He's a really good teacher, he teaches the course very well and makes it very interesting. Some of the quizzes and tests are real difficult. Just study a lot before tests, do homework everyday, and laugh at all of his jokes. Your the best Elford
I took his chem class back when I was in grade 11, at the time I thought his class was really difficult and didn't enjoy sciences at all. I'm now in my 4th year of behavioural neuroscience and applying for my Masters. Looking back it's clear that he had a thorough understanding of the material he was teaching and was ALWAYS available to help you out if ask for it, and in retrospect his teaching style reminds me of some of the best profs I've had in uni. He's a helpful and knowledgeable guy.
By far my favourite teacher at Lo - Ellen, he may be strict and his course load may be heavy, but he really makes sure you learn the stuff. His ridiculously cheezy anecdotes are the best thing for you in that class, they help you on a much larger scale then you know.
Honestly, the best teacher, because he is so strict, he makes you learn it. So helpful. He keeps class fun, and is so funny!
I like how he teaches, I find him funny sometimes, he's very understanding but I hate everything else involving the work. Far too hard a marker
great teacher, very tough and it's his way or the highway
he's a tough marker, but has a pretty good sense of humour
I really did not like him. He is the reason that I didn't keep doing chemistry. You have to do things his way, even I you answer a question with slightly different wording then his you will not get it
Elford is a really good teacher. He tells exactly how he wants you to do things, but he wants you to do it on the test exactly how her told you.
The funniest teacher in the school. Picky, but he makes sense if you pay attention, though he can frustrate students not used to his marking. Good teacher, great explanations and notes.
He was one of the best teacher's I had and definitely my favourite for Science. He always helped people if they were having problems and was always very clear what he expects from you in the class. If you have him as a teacher be prepared to do work because he gets everything done that he's supposed to. He prepares you extremely well for university.
He is very technical. He explains eveything to the last and smallest detail. He was a good teacher though I learned a lot.
He definetly knows his stuff all the way. Hes passionate about what he does, and I think he marks strictly but it is for our own good. He is the best science teach for sure.
Mr. Elford is picky, easily annoyed and has strict rules. Yet, I still enjoy going to his class because I learn so much. He's dedicated and knows his stuff. A negative I have about him is that his jokes are repetitive if you are in his class more than once. Athletes like myself get annoyed because if we miss class, we fall behind. Overall, Mr Elford rocks and people should give him some credit.
You're all entitled to your opinions but I personally believe that Mr. Elford is the best science teacher at Lo-Ellen. Of course you're going to hate him because he's a hard marker. He's just doing his job and trying to teach you good work habits. In the grand scheme of things, he is very knowledgeable about science, gives impeccable notes and pushes you to succeed. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!! :)
Mr.Elford makes funny jokes in class and talks about things in interesting ways that make ME want to LEARN!! He is one of the best teachers at Lo-Ellen!
He is definitely strict with marking, but it makes you strive to do better (its not like you can change his ways!). STRICT WITH DRESS CODE! He is definitely in the right profession. I learned a lot about science, and acquired a passion for science! He refers to himself in the third person...wierd!
He is SO PICKY! He takes marks off because he doesn't like the way I write my "5"s, and if you don't say exactly what he wants you to say on a test (even if just worded differently) he takes off all the marks for that question. I had him for both Gr11 and Gr12 chem, brutal brutal...
seems like he knows what he's talking about but enough with the sarcasm
He loves his job, and that has a good effect on the students. I think many students are to harsh on this guy. He is very funny! BUT he should refrain from expressing his opinions
He's tough... really tough... but fair, like he says lol. Funny, tho... a good teach! U can tell he likes his job.
