ONE OF THE BEST TEACHERS AT LISGAR. I had him for Gr 9 Science and Gr 11/12 chem. I nearly failed gr 11 chem tho but i passed gr 12 chem with a high 80. Mr Mckay is SOOOO NICE, youll love him. He doesnt pick or have favorites, he encourages you to do well. He never makes do any projects and presentation. All we do is take notes and labs. He is happily than ever to help you to succeed despite the time of the day. Exam = easy, GET HIM FOR SCH4U! EASY MARKER TOO!!
A good teacher, he's a legend.
“Mr Mackay inspires you, he entertain you, and you end up learning a ton even when you don't know it” :)
If you're okay with not doing anything in class and still get a high mark, Mr. McKay's your guy.
Very great teacher. Always knowledgeable about Chem. He is really easy to talk to and has really great ways of teaching. Some people find him boring but I personally like him. We don't really use the textbook that much but his notes are really clear and easy to understand if you pay attention and write them down. He doesn't pick on you or pick favorites which is always nice. 10/10 would suggest you have him for chem. You won't regret it. Legend McKay!
HE is my fav science teacher in Grade 9. We never did any presentations nor Projects. Easy MArker but his tests is kinda hard. The Exam was EASY, but the summative was hard. He's Chill and fun i love how we take notes EVERYDAY and watch some cool movies sucks I don't have him for a Science Teacher
easy tests/exam, horrible class experience. He does not teach you anything and always stares at his power point slides fixing typos. Apparently he does not care about attracting class' attention and you can literately do whatever you want in his class.
McKay is one of the most boring teachers I have ever had. He is boring, unable to keep the class`s attention, and unable to properly convey key points in his lesson. I learned from the textbook and ignored his long personal stories during class time. Despite my high mark, I am pretty sure I`m screwed for grade 12 science.
He is a really nice teacher but he assumes that he is teaching like a gifted class, if you're not good at science then he is not a good teacher. But he knows EVERYTHING about chemistry.
He is actually such a great teacher, he hates lates sp don't be late to his class or you're getting detention. Helpful with work, chill enviroment. Best teacher for sure! He's a favourite of mine.
If u have him for gr 12 chem and cannot learn using the textbook, drop out. He is confusing and doesnt tell important things. he is easy though
awesome easy teacher!! He's not the best at organising things and explaining, but hes very nice and is an easy marker. just hand in your labs and assignments in time and your guaranteed a mark above 9
he is a really easy maker as long as you sort of know what you are talking about. cant explain any thing properly/ doesnt even teach you the whole course expects you to go read the text book at look a
extremely easy marker and very nice. just hand in your stuff and you'll be fine. read the textbook for sure cause he doesn't explain really well. very entertaining in class too, very chill
I love chem! Really nice teacher! Love all the labs, they really help you understand chemistry. :)
One of the nicest teachers I've ever had. Very fair and understanding, also a great teacher. I'm glad I have him. - Mohamad Hussein
He is a good person. but not good at explaining things clearly. His classes are not bad but you can find it hard to remain awake. It is great that his tests are very easy.
He's a really nice guy, but just can't teach a lesson. It's so difficult to stay engaged in his class and I end up teaching myself every unit the night before the test. Thanks god he's an easy marker!
Can't explain the simplist thing to save his life! He doesn't teach the curriculum but makes his tests based on what we should have learned, not what he taught us!
Doesn't know how to explain anything. I have a hard time staying awake in his class, nevermind actually learning anything.
If you take his course, Hans Van Kessel and the other authors of the grade 12 Nelson textbook will be your teacher. He is absolutely useless. I strongly recommend you drop his course ASAP and run away
A teacher that simply does not know how to explain his stuff. He completely turned off my interest in Chemistry, and I hate him to the gut!
He knows everything about chemistry. Just nothing about teaching it.
he knows his stuff but he just cant teach...he doent really care and his tests are way too hard...
He knows a lot about chemistry, but he isn't a good teacher. He can ramble on for a whole lesson about something, and by the end everyone still doesn't know what he is talking about.
I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Not 100% stellar, but I did have a good time in his class. He's forgiving, and that's a good thing. Plus, no safety goggles.
Mr. McKay is a pretty good teacher, but too much of the class was just taking notes so if you hate that, then you're really going to hate his class!
SUCH a boring class. All we did was copy notes from the overhead. And then the exam was so simple...
good teacher......the way he says "OK" gets to be annoying though
stop making us copy notes and teach us something useful!
Whats with that exam??!!?? But was kewl all year. We only had like 1 test and a few quizes and our median was about 10% higher then other classes.
He may know everything but he knows nothing about explaining.
he takes off to many marks that students deserve on tests. he doen't explain lessons very well
Keep up the good work: Very easy - good Very helpful - good Very clear(moost of the times) - good
puts in way too little effort towards truly helping students. assumes people understand everything.
Unicorn + Monster = Hybridization. Don't get it? You missed out!
Cool classes, easy homework. Best Science class ever.
