very passionate about science. teaches like a professor and his tests are extremely difficult even with studying. makes bio really hard for students. won't give u a good mark. take his class if you want to challenge urself or if u are extremely smart
okay let me get one thing straight. hes not a bad teacher,he is simply a difficult and a strict one. he tells funny jokes, but is kind of a hard marker. you can come to him for extra help and he will give it to you. he can be a bit rude and grumpy but again he can be pretty funny. DO YOUR WORK!! hes a hard marker and does expect you to be an expert on the test and assignments. he will prepare you for university better than almost any teacher, and if you like science and puns, you will love him.
People think he's a hard teacher because he's one of the hardest but d'youville is an easy school. His tests are actually fair but I was really stupid back then. Now looking back, I switched schools and the science teachers at my current school have the standard Mr. Roach has. Just saying, if you haven't been to another school, you'll think that he's really harsh but in reality, he fits the actual standard of a science teacher. Anyone below him is too easy.
Honestly, Hes a really good teacher, yes his jokes are cheesy and yes he marks really hard, but its for your own benefit! he doesn't teach you concepts that you are not going to need. If your tolerance level is low, switch out!
His jokes are horrible and he is so boring. There was not one day I didn't fall asleep. He teaches like a university teacher and doesn't even get on the level of his students. He is so intimidating when you ask him a question. He just stares you down and then you never want to ask him questions again. His tests are insanely hard and it has nothing to do with what is in the textbooks! His voice is so monotone and is meant for bedtime stories. He is one of the WORST teachers at d'Y !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Useful advice from a university freshman: Take. His. Class. Everything he lectured on in grade 12 is exactly the stuff you learn at University of Waterloo. If I can go to his class right now, I'd than
Although his lessons are very edcuational, his tests are so unexpected. You wouldn't believe the types of questions he would write on his tests!!!
Good guy, funny sense of humour if you are smart enough to appreciate it and is a fair teacher. Yeah Biology aint easy and you gotta put in da work. He is helpful if you ask him.
GOOD TEACHER...might be a hard marker but it is all apart of the process!
What you don't know is Roach is an alien. He's a pretty good teacher. For an alien.
a difficult teacher and intimedating but if you ask for help and do the work than you'll be fine
Mr roach has the worst jokes ever. No one laughs, Besides the jokes he doesnt teach very well. He expects hmwk to be done when its a video and you were absent for it. He also asigns at least 2 sheets of work a day. BOO!
Mr. Roach is a wonderful tacher, with a some what great personality but he is very anul. Very uptight needs to loosen is tie once in a while. He tries to make science fun and interesting but you can not occomplish that by being uptight. Keep trying sir !!
