Terrible teacher. No clue how his reviews are so good. He knows maybe 3 kids' names and its already the last week of the semester. You ask him for help and he gets back to you with an answer maybe 2 years later. He isnt clear and his notes are all over the place. He tries to make a "fun" class when in fact he uses the same jokes every class that make me want to leave the clasroom immediately. He is very knowledgeable and a brilliant guy, but not a good teacher per say.

Although he’s a very nice person in general, I don’t see why he gets such great reviews. He picks his favourites from the first class, and with one week left in the semester he still doesn’t know 75% of the students names in the class. I’ll give it to them that he’s very knowledgeable, and knows the course very well however he does not teach it well

Simply the best guy! I had for intro to econ a year ago and microeconomics this semester. Got a 95% in both. his classes are discussion-based but clearly defines all the topics and draws lots of graphs on the board. Super knowledgeable because he wrote the textbook. Gave us review sheets and showed us old exams before tests. Make sure you know how to draw graphs for his exams. Super fun to talk to, makes a lot of jokes, will pick on people who don't volunteer to speak in class so pay attention.

One of the best teachers I had at Dawson College. I had him for Intro to Economics and he was amazing. He engages the class and jokes around a lot. Everything he explains is usually crystal clear but he will repeat himself until he is sure the class will understands. The notes he gives are straightforward as are his assignments and tests. Super funny - Definitely a certified SWEETHEART. Definitely would recommend!!

I liked him as a teacher but I didn't pass his class. Even studying and showing up to every class. The way he teaches isn't great. He just sits and talks and picks students to talk. I would recommend Sacha Desrosiers instead. She has hand outs and explains much clearly.
