Physics 11 and 12 were very interesting classes. If you are strong in math and can think critically, then the course is easy to handle. However if you are not, you may want to reconsider taking physics. Quizzes are frequent and tests are usually announced one week prior. Quizzes may have content that you did not learn in class. Tennant solely uses the textbook for practice problems. He teaches through examples that you copy from the overhead. It may not be clear, but he knows what he is doing.
Mr. Tennant is my favourite teacher, 10/10. He hardly gives out any homework and there are never any surprises on the tests. If there is he will omit them. also he drops you lowest quiz marks. He is kind.
Really does not teach at all, most of the class is spent doing examples that he rushes through without explaining properly and he doesn't explain any of the concepts properly at all. Literally, puts the least amount of effort into his classes out of any of jh teacher. Sometimes funny but thats it.
Not the best but he's a good person
Tennant is the worst teacher ever. He has taught us nothing the entire semester. Our class has spent more time writing quizzes than notes. He understands Physics, but doesn't understand how to teach it. He should reflect on what he is doing in class and think about if he's teaching us or just wasting our time. I had to get a tutor because there is no one to teach me. If i had a teacher, I wouldn't need a tutor. Johnston Heights needs a better Physics teacher. Take Physics online not with Tennant
BEST TEACHER EVER!!! super easy marker, lets you re-do tests, barely any homework and still got 92% in his course. I learnt nothing but got an A!
Mr. Tennant is great. Physics 11/12 is really dry. Though you only do examples, most of the examples, given the fact that you attend class and ACTUALLY try, will do well. His test and quizzes are either his own or provincial questions. Most of the time he put questions from your previous exam/quizzes in your final. For people taking Physics 11, make sure you write down all the examples because he does homework check and its just copying down certain examples that you took in class.
he doesnt teach, he makes you write examples
i loved mr. tennant! his lessons were clear and his tests were never surprising, and the homework was minimal. he always made sure we understood. he was such a funny nice guy, hope i have him next year.
he's a really good teacher, but you have to pay attention and take notes. his lessons are pretty fast-paced, but he's willing to help if you need it. he's also really funny in an offbeat kind of way.
He never answered my questions; and all we did was copy out equations all block!
loved mr.tennant. he genuinely cares about his students and will go to any lengths to help them. he makes eveyone feel so at home. i loved physics because this amazing teacher.
If you like learning through examples then he is definatley the teacher for you. His notes are based on examples, at least for physics. I was really frusterated until I figured that out. But overall I really liked him.Always there to help,I liked the studying parties that he organized for us. His class is for those willing to do some of there own reading from texts books,and come to class prepared to ask quest.(Its our educ. system that makes us depended on teachers notes,rather than writing are own notes.)
Not too good at teaching actually TEACHING math. I guess just because the school can't afford real math teachers. Anyways, what I hear is that he's a really good physics teacher, I can see that. Overall, he's a cool guy, chill. He lets you listen to music and sometimes even when I was sneaking food into my mouth, I'm pretty sure he saw me and didn't say anything!
I've had him grade 9 and 10 math, he's bad for math cuz he doesnt explain anything. But for physics he seems to like to teach, and he's a really good teacher for that. and he gave me chocolate once =S
He is a really awesome teacher! One of my best teachers in my grade nine year! He called me the smartie girl cause I always used to bring smarties into his class. He still offers me smarties!
really awesome physics teacher that knows his stuff. thanks for the kfc and pizza
Dude i love mr tennant! Except he isn't so nice to you if your in grade 8, 9 and 10. Otherwise he is hilarious!
One of the best teachers ever! He calls me "smarties girl" cause i always bring smarties in his class, and he always asks me for one :)
he's kind of antisocial...he never eats lunch with the rest of the science teachers....teaches using examples, never actually gives notes
he teaches really good but boring suprises quizes all the time long tests haha good teacher very nice also he never uses computer haha he is a good teacher :D
