Alex is HILARIOUS! I don't know if he's retiring for sure but if not take him! No homework ever, one term paper and three exams, all easy if you read the book. He gets really carried away sometimes and doesn't even really teach, but it's super funny! He's a fair teacher and his tests are basically 90% multiple choice, a lot of the questions are things you already know. Awesome complementary class, do take.
Funny guy, easy class, has a nice sense of humour. I probably skipped half the semester and all my marks are in the 90s. Do take!
He's a pretty chill teacher. Doesn't take attendance and doesn't give homework.
Probably the funniest teacher at Abbott. Also, very interesting class and you won't have to study like hell.
Does not take attendance. you can pass by reading the book. no homework, one big paper with 3 tests. Quiet at times, but absolutely hilarious man. He answers all questions, though he does mock the dumb people who never listen. Overall awesome class.
Very nice, doenst speak loud at all, no homework, couple of assignements, couple of exams, laid-back class. I recommended it.
Hilarious guy, somewhat tough marker and sometimes, he's really hard to understand but he answers ur every question and takes time to help you and everything, pretty good teacher
GREAT TEACHER! why? 1.funny 2.easy to understand 3.you know what the essay part of the exam is and he gives you a practice multiple choice exam to prepare you for the multiple choice part 4.he is pati
He is halarious! Love this teacher. He makes the class fun and interesting. He will always crack a joke :) He is very chill but likes it when you show up on time and pay attention. Make sure to read
Love this teacher makes dull subjects fun he should be your top pick
I had him as a sub, and the guy is hilarious. Coolest old guy you will ever met, seriously
Mr. Stirling is a very good teacher, explains his material very clearly, and is terribly funny. However do not arive late, or you may have to embarrass yourself in front of the class. Take the class!!
Alex Stirling is a hero. He's a very good teacher, and it's fun to be in his class. Avoid being late, and you'll avoid his wrath. I have no interest in Psychology, but I still got a 99 and felt like I learned something. TAKE
Best teacher ever! Intro to psychology was easy and fun! He's hilarious! Take him.
For sure the best and funniest teacher at Abbott by far. Don't hesitate to take him I would if I could take his intro to psych class again.
Alexander Stirling keeps the class interesting.He is an amazing guy who is honest and who has great character.If you take this teacher you will NOT regret it. He doesn't give you lot's of work either, just do your term papers and do well on the couple of quizzes and you'll be fine!
great teacher. so funny! really makes the class interesting. Worth attending and easy marker. 1 project. no assignments. essay question every test, but read the book and you'll do well.
Great guy, probably my best teacher ever. He is truly edu-tainment
amazing teacher,great class,helps you with everything,cares that his students do well,takes the time to help make anything clearer or easier,very insightful and makes class easy,tests and paper are easy,but you have to work,
My favorite teacher, hands down. His classes are very interesting, he's very nice and quite possibly one of the funniest people ever. Take his class, you'll be glad you did.
AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING. LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM SO FAR! You gatta take this teacher if you can!!!
One of my favorite profs at Abbott! Insane sense of humor and great teaching skills...I'd take him again in a heartbeat!
This is a teacher you want and must take! Like honestly, he's so funny and easy marker and very sweet! You' ll be laughing all class! He gives a lot of examples so it's really easy! And he shows movies that are really fun!
Really good teacher, I ended up with a 96% grade at the end of the semester. My best class and my best mark at Abott! Take him as your intro teacher you will really enjoy his teaching!
You really have to learn alot of stuff on your own for his class. If you don't read the book, you will not pass his tests. As for his in class lectures, they are helpful and entertaining. But alot of your own time is required
Best teacher EVER! very minimal homework and always a very entertaining class
Very nice person ... gives second chances...and third ...
Wow, Alex is the most awesome teacher in the world! He swears a lot to make classes funny, and tells amazing and hillarious stories to teach the material. If you listen in class and/or read the material you will get over 100 like I did. He is so helpful if you need it, and everything is clear and incredibly interesting! I switched programs because of this guy! If I could I'd take the class again, he's that good!
Not gunna get any better then this. Makes class entertaining. I didnt even skip once. Knows what hes talking about. He Swears, hes funny, and even plays hockey!!Great Guy
Alex is awesome!! take him if you can...he does swear a lot but has a great sense of humor and gives lots of personal stories to explain the material...he gives 10 bonus marks if you hand the term paper on time as well....take him!!
He is hilarious!!! Swears a lot.. which is why he is so funny! Loved this guy. He's a good teacher too. Its a pretty easy class, only 3 exams, and 1 term paper which took me maybe 1 hour, thats it! Take him if u can!
FUNNY teacher! He's so fun to listen to! He grades easily and its easy to get good grades. A lot of things to remember but it's not so bad! Take him though you won't regret it he's one of the best teachers i've ever seen!!
Okay, keep in mind that I wrote this review after having Alex for only ONE CLASS. I got lazy or forgot to say it after that day, but I digress: Alexander Stirling is possibly the most qualified for his job. He doesn't use the leverage of having a brain that retains a lot of information on a particular subjects, he uses his casual (ie, swearing all the time) nature to really speak to kids in a language they can't get bored with. He's hilarious and entertaining and really inspires me.
I loved Alex!! He is John Abbott's coolest teacher! He is in his 70s, but has the energy of a 20 year old. He is always swearing and telling funny stories, but still manages to teach all the material required for his tests. He shows a lot of movies and gives out bonus questions, so it is easy to get a high mark. Just read the textbook, listen in class, and do some studying before the tests.
Amazing teacher! If you can pick a psychology teacher, pick Alex. He makes the class fun and interesting. Although there is alot of reading and studying required, he is a great teacher. He makes Psychology enjoyable and is willing to help you anytime, as long as you work and show alot of effort.
One of the best teachers that i've ever had, hes so funny but still teaches you, truly a guy who likes his job
Great teacher and great guy. He's so helpfull and his classes are a lot of fun.
Very entertaining and easy teacher. Make sure you read the textbook before tests. I got 100%, no joke.
really good teacher, he made classs fun! fair tests (study the book) and put effort into term paper, easy to pass
Best teacher ever!!!... always there if you need extra help and his explanations are clear... take him if you can!!!
Awesome teacher! His classes are VERY entertaining because he's hilarious. He acts like if he was your friend who was teaching.
Very funny teacher! Makes the course very fun. Plus, he shows a lot of movies. However, he's very old and swears a lot.
Funniest guy you'll ever meet. You must study quite a bit but he is very helpful and gives you a lot of chances to achieve a good mark
great guy; exams are tricky especially his essay questions for it!! lots of studyin needed for his class. Read the txt!. 100% Joker though. Lets u rewrite final Essay.
Makes his class interesting. Has a great attitude towards teaching, although get the feeling he's bored sometimes, nevertheless, fun class.
perfect teacher! has fun teaching and likes his students! not much work. 1 reasearch paher and 3tests. easy to pass!
Really good teacher!Overall seems like a really down to earth person, and believes in positive reinforcement rather than punishment!The kind of guy id want to have as a friend!
Totally awesome guy. Hes a 72 yr. old stuck in a 18 yr. old state of mind its great
Great teacher i would recommend him to anyone! Take his class!
good teacher, hand the work in on time and ull do ok, thinks hes young and ppl think its funny to swear
The best teacher i ever had this year. Psychology was hard for me at first but with his help i was able to get a very good mark. I really like this teacher alot
truly an inspiration - psychology was not only clear but interesting as well, I really hope I have an opportunity to take him again
Alex is the best teacher, I loved his class. He is an awesome guy who makes the material interesting. He was the best teacher I had in social. Take him hes grea
He's a really cool and funny teacher, study for your tests & you'll do fine,hes a fair marker also
Funny guy! Can't stop swearing, it's hilarious. Best psych teacher, take him if you can!
Dr. Stirling is the coolest teacher I have ever had!
great teacher! i loved him! his assignments are really easy... but long and same for the final essay. you have to study for exams... but hes worth all the work
he is such a cool teacher and always help students that want to pass and work hard. He always swears though but hes amazing and the best pschology teacher ever!
Amazing Teacher makes you want to do well in his class
fun class to be in, he makes it interesting, lotta note taking but if you read the book youll do fine. one paper, long but easy mark. i got 102%
An Amazing Prof! I highly recommend him. Interesting lectures, challenging tests but just a nice guy. (very funny)
Great Teacher. If you failed the essay, he gives a 2nd chacne to redo, bonus if you hand in on time. Fun lecture and clear. Give practice tests in class.
he is really nice and his lectures are fun - his tests can be hard, so make sure to study!!... but you can skip all you want
Very nice teacher...just make sure u do your work and ur set...skip as much as u like
very nice teacher with good sense of humor but careful, you have to work! He is quite clear in his explanations and always there when you need extra one.
Ok, no point to go to class, just read the book. He can be entertaining but his endless notes will make u fall asleep. Grades "quizzes" HARD!!!
Really funny teacher...loves to tell stories. If you want to have fun while learning then take his class
Helped me understand psych in a different, fun and interesting way. I was actually looking forwards to his class.
I didn't learn much about Psych that I didn't read in the book, but I had a good time in class (he's hilarious) and that's what CEGEP's about. STUDY HARD!
Incredible educator. Amazing lectures, fun and interesting. (study for tests)
Amazing teacher, really interesting, guaranteed an enjoyable class
Sparked my interest for psych. A passionate, fun, dynamic teacher.
If you don't like a teacher who swears, don't take this class
