Barber is something else. The first few days of his class may easily be the most terrifying days of your life, but stick it out! He puts up a tough exterior in class (stopping lectures to stare at people not paying attention, not allowing people to stand up w/o asking) However, seeing him for help outside of class is like talking to a whole other person. His motto is "I'd rather you be confused than bored", so be prepared to work hard and you'll do fine.
Mr. Barber is one of the best physics teachers I know.
Mr barber is hard to understand, he has no notes, and gives u the hardest homework and also he gives u a quiz every single day!😠☹️
He knows his physics. People don't like him because it's hard but Mr. Barber helps you in the long run. University physics will be pretty straight-forward if you take his class. You get daily quizzes and the material might be difficult but that only makes you study more/review daily which is what he likes. He might be cold at first but he does that to scare away the dumb and not-serious kids who took his class.
He loves his physics and he loves you if you love your physics. If you ask for help, make sure to listen, and listen carefully. His words are magical.
He might be the genius in the school, but not the easy teacher to understand I've met other physics tutor who taught much effectively, I find the online lectures much easier to understand and helpful than his notes He is a tough teacher and that's what most will at least agree with and every question is written in physics 12 so online physics is a viable choice.
Best physics teacher ever. He is a legend. The class goes dead silent when he walks in, he is so strict. Don't talk back to him, he'll kick you out of class.
A very strict but fair Physics teacher, Mr. Barber is passionate about teaching and about physics. Not only does he have a deep understanding of the subject, he knows what it's like to be a student an
BEST TEACHER EVER!!!! IT'S A TEACHER THAT YOU MUST GET IF YOU GO TO SEAQUAM BEST TEACHER EVER!!!!BEST TEACHER EVER!!!!BEST TEACHER EVER!!!!BEST TEACHER EVER!!!!BEST TEACHER EVER!!!!BEST TEACHER EVER!!
It seemed that Mr. Barber would finish talking/teaching immediately before the bell every class. His lesson plans must have been amazing. Extremely helpful, fun and informative;I strive to be like him
Barber is an amazing teacher that will change you. He places a fear in his class that makes it go dead quiet when he walks in. Best teacher I every had.
This guy was tough as nails, but an amazing teacher. I gained a lot of confidence from his class. He also was the king of sly jokes, ones you had to pay attention to catch. One of the best at Seaquam.
Just too hard to get passed the arrogance. Other teachers know as much and are easier to relate.
I remember watching the fog in his class...he is a legend!!!
He knows his stuff but getting a bit of extra help can be brutal. Way too many rules in the classroom, kind of a dictator setup that doesn't seem to serve any purpose. Needs to be more relaxed.
He yelled at me for asking him a question once without saying please, but he teaches well and has a 'different' sense of humor than most of the teachers at Seaquam. Overall, he's not a bad guy.
Kinda high on himself. Most students in Physics are pretty smart so it's easy for him to look good
OK sometimes but really not the greatest. Kinda mean but really easy for running(the only plus).
The work needed in Physics 12 equaled that of Med School. Instilled a great work ethic.
Best teacher at Seaquam and the best physics Teach I have ever had! Any man who can make physics not only interesting but to add his amazing sense of humour to it is spectacular.
great teacher. His lessons are amazingly humorous and interesting to listen to. I respect the man very much!
Nearly best teacher I've ever had. He was one of the few teachers who understood the sort of thinker I am. Just don't allow yourself to be intimidated by his persona. Great guy, trust me on this!
Definitely the best teacher ever. The class is no longer filled with annoying, loud students and his jokes are just hilarious.
He's scaaarryyy, but I learned the most in his class than any other... Just do your worksheets and you'll be fine :)
everyone shuts up when he comes into the classroom...
he tries so hard to be tough scary teacher, but hes actually a not..its intimidating to approach him, but he actually loves it if you ask him questions AFTER class. seriously
Can't find a better teacher.. this guy is a genius and he knows what he's talking about. Be prepared to work HARD tho! If you're a C+ student or lower... run away...
Mr. Barber = God of Seaquam. It's very hard to teach a subject like physics and he makes learning the course simple. Gotta Love the Blade Runner!
physics is a hard subject and i dun think anyone else can teach physics better than him.Sometimes he can get very funny and at times very scary,especially when someone acts stupid.
All he has to do is walk in the class and everyone shuts up. This is what I call a real teacher. His class might not be the easiest but it's the best because he's actually interesting to listen to.
he's a very good teacher, prepare you for the provincials and you can aced it easily. he's a strict person but he has another side of him afterclass.
Grad '94 here. Hah. Teacher ratings online... man I'm old. Good to see he's still having an impact. Amazing teacher, gave me confidence in myself and self estee
tuff class. NEVER fall behind cuz there's no help available if it happens. be warned.
The BEST TEACHER ever, such a brilliant man! I actually look 4ward to his classes. Barber is one teacher I will actually miss wen I graduate. I'm grateful.
I haven't asked for help this year yet, so i wouldn't know if Barber was helpful or not. When he teaches a class, he seems to be too serious though.A bit scary.
for once a teacher who teaches, funniest teacher ive ever had!! and wow he definetly knows what he's talking about, i swear he's a genious!!! hard class tho
wow.. a teacher who teaches, i would recomend his class to anyone who has the gutts to do what your told.
he lets you ask just ONE question. period. he knows his stuff, but this dude is just scary.
Why do I find his stuff easy, is he just that good of a teacher? I think so.
An ACTUAL teacher. The only one who has control over his class and knows how to teach.
Takes teaching seriously and demands respect; great grasp of material, and teaches it well, and so he should be respected. Best physics teacher I'll ever have.
Grad '99... Now finishing up UBC Computer Engineering Degree and just had an interview with Stanford. Still use the C++ and physics knowledge he taught me.
One thing. Time is very important in his class...He is strict, but a great teacher.
Physics is my favorite class, yet one of my worst?? But thats casue I hate momentum lol
barber has been long my favorite teacher in the school, its awsum when u see someone get kicked out of class
By far the best science teacher I've ever had. This includes university professors.
Mr. B is really strict. 3 rules of survival in his physic class 1. don't move 2. don't breathe 3. learn EVERYTHING cuz you don't know what's on the test.
Ya...he's great...vear good at teaching..and aome funny joke...
Mr.Barber has been by far the best teacher i have ever had for a physics course. Even at UBC i have yet to find a professor with such a firm grasp on physics as Mr.Barber. Not only this, but he can actually teach this to others.
