Mr. Paddock was an amazing IB physics tutor. Even though he hadn't taught the course before, he was able to explain complex physics topics with ease, and brought interesting and relatable examples into our sessions. He also was able to answer all of my questions, and broke down every concept so that I was able to easily understand it. I would highly recommend Mr. Paddock as a physics teacher!

Mr. Paddock has been the most useful resource for Chemistry. He helped me actually understand what was being taught, and he made chemistry one of my favorite subjects. If you are looking for help in chem, I would 10/10 recommend using Mr. Paddock :)

Before receiving tutoring from Mr. Paddock I was doing decently in Chemistry, however much of what I knew was simply me regurgitating what was written in my notes and books. Mr. Paddock explained concepts in a way that allowed me to make connections between the things that I learned. He is very well versed in Chemistry and is clearly interested in it. His enthusiasm and easy-going personality made the burden that is Chemistry a little less heavy. I definitely recommend having him as a tutor!

In Mackay's class I hated IB Chemistry. Never in my life have I needed a tutor. Mr Paddock is an amazing teacher, if you have to opportunity to learn from him take it. I learned so much from him, he is very clear, concise, and intelligent. He can explain concepts to anyone in a way they will understand. He helps you develop a way of thinking through the questions without his help. Best teacher I have ever had. IB Chemistry at cameron has never sufficed so much as when Padock decided to retire.

When I began grade 11 chem I hated it and was almost failing the course. Halfway through the year I realized to do well in this course I was going to need a tutor, and Mr. Paddock had taught IB chemistry and everyone suggested him as a tutor. When I began going to Mr. Paddock for chemistry tutoring I finally understood what was going on and almost even enjoyed chemistry. He helped me boost my grades, understand the material and end up with a very high mark in the class and for that I am thankful

Mr.Paddock is hands down the best teacher I've ever had. He helped me throughout the entire year in chemistry, turning my failing mark into a mark well above average. He was understanding, he worked on concepts with me until I understood them completely and was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend him as a tutor to anyone struggling in chemistry. He's an amazing teacher!

Mr. Paddock made me like chemistry a lot more than I thought I'd ever like and worked hard to make sure I was fully prepared for the exam. He always makes sure that his students are well off and would work really hard with each individual to do so.

A tough teacher, but so much fun. One of thsoe teachers who loves his subject so much you can't help but start to get a bit enthusiastic even when you hate his subject. Very friendly, always willing to give extra help (and very good about not making you feel dumb when you do need help.) Just... as another reviewer said, born to teach.
