When my son was struggled with Dr. Anderson’s course and told me how condescending Dr. Anderson was when he asked for clarification on assignments, I started to help him with his assignments. I have a masters degree in English. All of the assignments came back as Cs. Clearly, Dr. Anderson decided my son was a C student. My son gave up on the course, started skipping school because he was so discouraged, and decided that he is not smart enough to go to university. Thanks, Dr. Anderson!
One of the best teachers I have had. Challenged and inspired me beyond what even my univsersity professors were able to do.
Dr. Anderson is easily one of, if not the best teacher at Lucas. He is incredibly intelligent (to an admirable degree), and it's clear that he loves teaching given the charisma he exudes when in front of the class. Yes, he is one of the harder markers at the school, but that's how he weeds out the slackers. He is a higher level teacher and he seeks to prepare students for university. Those who complain of poor marks are those who aren't doing the work.
Dr. Anderson is the smartest teacher at Lucas and an absolute legend. As long as you are not a whiny SJW who is triggered by everything, you will like him.
Reviews talk about favouritism, but if you're optimistic about learning and come to class, you'll become a favourite of his. Overall his class is very enjoyable and interesting.
I did not like Dr. Anderson as a teacher. I felt that he favoured students over others and it showed in his interactions during class as well as marks of projects and test results.
Dr.Anderson is an awesome teacher, not only does he really know what he's talking about but he makes class interesting and fun! One of the best English teachers I've ever had.
An amazing teacher who knows a great deal about what he's teaching! Especially in Philosophy.
BEST TEAHCER EVVVEERR!! NEVER HAD A BETTER TEACHER EVER
BEST TEACHER EVER! I am so excited to attend his classes again next year~ its going to be really fun and exciting!
best teacher ever! he knew that he was talking about the whole time
Is a super fun teacher, has a great attitude and is very intuitive and fun
Very sociable and easy to get a long with, he has a lot of knowledge and experiences as well as funny stories. He marks hard but it's the push most people need, it was a definite help to me. He's strict and hard on those who need it. He's opinionated, which is never a bad thing. This man is nothing short of genius.
anderson is one of the best teachers at lucas and if he likes you expect help from him. if you slack you might as well drop the class
Had Anderson as a grade 10 English teacher and I wish I could have him again! If you are a student who can think outside of the box, have intelligent discussions, and do your work, Anderson will love
Very opinionated, which is normally ok, unless they take their own opinions into consideration when marking. Believe it or not, there's a difference between arguing a point, and recycling what was pre
cool guy, reportedly biased, gets worked up about odd things, very nitpicky marker (which is a good thing!)
A great teacher who actually is passionate on teaching and helping his students to succeed. The marks you get from him can be harsh, but they are fair.
Fantastic teacher. He obviously loves his job.. People say he's hard, but really he's not. He is a little biased, but who isn't? Isn't afraid to state his opinions, and VERY engaging. Changed me.
I found his classes to be extremely easy, maybe it's just because he liked me.
Amazing teacher, learned soo much about Religion, and myself in his class. He is a challenging teacher, but he'll do everything he can to help you. Very compassionate and understanding, a great guy!
He is a very smart guy. He marks very tough but he really gets you ready for University. He has some pretty good stories. Steve
He marks you based on how well he likes you. So get on his good side and participate a lot in class. It helps to agree with him too
He's a very very smart guy, and I learned a lot from him. He has his prejudices, however, and if you have him for philosophy it can occasionally get in the way although he tries to hide it. Also: he likes very good movies.
Only had him for grade nine and he was great. Friends had him for grade 12 and OAC, and he was great at prepairing you for Uni, becuase his hard marking, reflects the even harder marking the profs do,
He is a REALLY good guy. Pretty hard marker, but gives you marks he thinks you deserve. I did pretty crappy on my ISP essay (i.e. close to failing) but still scraped by with an 80. You gotta give him credit for that.
Probably the worst teacher at the school. How is he still able to work at the school? Hard to work with and a very hard marker.
i dun undrstnd y ppl dun like him hes hilarious, i really enjoy his class almost made english enjoyable
i have hated english class for all of my life, but Mr. Anderson is the first english class that i find enjoyable. Although he is a hard marker, but i did learn alot in his class
FUNNY FUNNY man. I'm really bad at English and getting a bad mark, he's a hard marker, but I can't help but like the guy. Good stories, good ideas.. make people think. Great guy
I've never had a better year in english and prolly never will!!!
I can't believe Anderson is getting a lower rating than Slegers. He's very helpful and you actually learn english from him. Plus, high marks are possible if you actually try.
Mr. Anderson simply is the most awesome teacher I have ever had. There is nothing more I can say...
Anderson marks his senior students very hard in order to "prepare them for university." Unfortunately, he marks so hard that no one gets the grades they need! :P
Anderson's an awesome teacher. Hard marker, but a fun teacher. Teacher things about the real world and other non-curricular things, which makes his class enjoyable.
Mr.Anderson is so much fun. he has a great sense of humour and elts us ahve fun in class. we don't do broing assignmnents, we have class discussions about cool things. he rocks!
He does play favourites, but he's a pretty cool guy. Good sense of humour etc etc.
If you're in his class .. run. A horrible marker and extremely unhelpful (plays favorites)
i like his class.it's fun. he is sometimes a hardmarker
Tough marker, I'll never get over 90. Still a great teacher
He is the reason I became the person who I am today.
that i really don`t like him as a teacher i hated him thats all
Most people claim he's difficult, whilst in reality he is simply being objective
Charismatic, fun.. an adamantine sense of self . God bless, Mr A!
I'm not getting 90% but I can only blame myself. He's a decent guy.
you will never get a 90 in that class, needs to ease up on the marking
very nice and helpful, marks way too hard in grade 12
