Nice person, but bad teacher. There is no taking notes in class, he only provides messy and disorganized examples. However, if you do all the examples provided and listen to him in class, you should be fine. He’s understanding and will listen to you and change your grade if you think his grading is unfair. I recommend him only to students who are good at self learning because he won’t cover everything in class. You will have to spend time at home trying to understand the topics you’re learning
He is a very nice person; cares a lot about his students, ready to help whenever you want, he hates when people talk while he's teaching, but PLEASE pay attention in his class, and just do all the the problems (from his study guide document) and you'll do great because his tests are very similar to the documents he sends, he likes the lab reports to be perfect so work hard on them and he'll give you a 100, his grading is very fair and you can even change your mark if you talked to him.
Really nice teacher who cares about his students. His explainations are clear and his exams are easy if you have done all the exercises. However, sometimes, he can a bit disorganized. I recommend him.
Overall, he is a very nice man who does worry about his students marks and understanding of the course. However, his notes are messy and scattered. Also, the examples provided are rarely the same or similar to those present on the test. In addition, his grading style is absolutely terrible. I showed up for a test, wrote the entire thing, and got a 0. I understand that my answers were not correct, however I have NEVER received a 0 for a completed test until this class. Unfair and unreasonable.
Horrible mechanics teacher, harsh marker, doesn't explain labs properly, notes are the most unclear thing I have ever seen in my life, he will confuse you. overal horrible mechanics teacher
You have to do what he assigns and you will be fine. Only lazy and irresponsible kids failed with him other then that you will get at least an 80.
GREAT TEACHER!! I strongly recomend him, he is pretty organized,very nice and knows his stuff. His explanations are clear and his exams are not too hard if you work on a regular basis and do all the exercices he gives. He want his students to suceed so if you have him keep him! He'll be very helpful and prepare you for you next physics course.
He is a great teacher overall. If you do the problems he assigns you'll be good for tests.
his notes are disorganized, but just make sure to do all his practice problems and ask questions, labs are really easy, exams are not quite fairly graded but you can easily negotiate to boost your mark, you don't have to buy the textbook so thats an upside
Notes are all over the place. If you do the problems he posts on Omnivox, you will do ok, however you are going to need to teach yourself physics.
He's nice, but he will not prepare you for the common final at all. From the beginning- middle of the semester i found him to be great, until it came to the final topic. Near the end, he started missing class and trying to use useless substitutes to teach whatever was left. This happened 4 times in the last month. And when he would be there, he would not even try to effectively explain it. Class avg for the final test was in the 40's - THAT BAD. 90's students avgs dropped to high 70's. Avoid.
Good teacher, tests are from the problems we do in class, and no webworks are assigned. He has a pretty sloppy handwriting though. And you'll have a couple in class quizzes. Other than that he frees up half an hour before the end of class for questions.
Love it when he says; "You are putting yourself to fail".
He's a good teacher from what I can tell so far. He gives examples and good theory only a little messy at times. Does not use the book at all but uses his own questions and posts a lot of stuff on omnivox. He's very kind and will always help you with whatever. He's also really nice and cares about you and your success. I would definitely recommend him.
If you can teach yourself physics, take him. The class average will be low and your mark will be very high (Amazing R-Score). Labs are very easy and he is such an easy marker, he puts either an A or a B, depending honestly how he feels looking at your lab. His tests are exactly like the ones he posts on Omnivox, so pretty much just do all the online tests and teach yourself by cross-referencing the solutions and you will get an amazing mark. My R-Score with him was 37.390. I had him for mechanic
good teacher just do the omnivox examples and and notes and you'll be okay
His classes are very repetitive and notes can be very messy. He's nice and wants to help you understand the topic. Just remember to do all the problems he posts on omnivox because most likely similar questions will be on the class test. He also gives pop quizzes to test your knowledge on topic. Labs aren't that hard. Easy marker.
so basically this is his teachn method for mech. 1)in class he'll give u a couple of formulas and blabber for te rest of class 2)put up tons of old tests and problems for each topic with detailed solutions on omnivox. if ur the type of person who only needs prblms and solutions to learn then hes perfect bcuz u dont even need to go 2class cuz everything is online (cept for ~5 labs) BUT if u need notes etc then dont take him. & he h8s wen u tlk while he is. n if u come l8 4labs he wont let u in
I really had a positive learning experience from him. He does not assign webwork. However, he assigns numbers in the book and gives you previous class tests with dedtailed solutions. His tests are similar to the exercises viewed in class. If you understand those and make sure to understand the material covered in class and ask questions, you will do very well.
not clear, leaves often but tests are fair and easy. get a tutor and teach yourself pretty much youll do fine. hes a nice guy though
He's a nice person but he needs to be more organized. He forgot my class's final exam, and I've never heard of any teacher forgetting that before. His tests are really clear but he leaves class often.
hes a horrible physics teacher not worth taking. he confusing and not helpful and he leaves the class half the tie so frustrating to deal with him. dont take him espeically if ur in explorations.
this guy is honestly disrespectful the way he speaks to students. doesnt care if you fail, rarely available for office hours, nice in class however, when he decides to show up to class. tests are ok
In class, it is hard to follow what he's explaining. But, if you do the homework, you'll do fine. His tests are based on the exercices he gives and he is a fair marker.
Compared to all the other physics teachers, he seems to be the "okay" from my experience. His labs are easy and extends due dates. His tests are easy (if you know what you are doing).
You have to work hard in his class, but he tells you what is exactly on the tests (which are practically the homework questions) and he is a reasonable marker. Not bad, I'd take him again.
Lectures are unclear, notes are unclear, consistently late to class, answers his phone every class AND during tests. Would never recommend this teacher.
Notes were bad, and not helpful in explaining either. Take him only if physics is your thing and u can understand it with a textbook, tests are ok if you get his material and make sure keep with HW!
He is a person who cares about his students and does what he can do to ensure your success in his class. Without his help I would not have been successful in his class. Ask questions!
Really nice as a person, aproachable and kind, YET do NOT take him as a teacher. Very bad at explaining, acts as if youve already graduated with a PhD in physics...do not like his notes
I would say an overall good teacher, his way of teaching is great and you will be able to learn the material very well. However his tests and quizes are challenging. Basically: you listen you pass
His notes are all over the place... almost no theory... goes too fast... expects you to understand every single word he says... tests super long... yeah I wouldn't really recommend him.
His notes are rly horrible. Goes too fast. Hardly teaches any theory. all you do in class are examples. despite how horrible he is, his tests are RLY easy! Just study from the book.
Hard teacher. His notes are allover the board and are hard to read. To make it worse he always blocks them by standing in front of them so it takes a long time to copy down. Tests are IMPOSSIBLE.
The teaccher is not that great. His notes are everywere on the board and his test are super hard. If u take him, be prepared to wark hard in understanding the material especially for NYA.
very helpful and understanding teacher, wish there were more like him!
very helpful teacher..wants all his students to succeed..highly recommended!
really nice guy,he made rally complicated subjects pretty easy to understand, really the best physics teacher at vanier by far and i had alot of them take him!!
Excellent for Mechanics, wants students to succeed. Very helpful.
For all who fear Physics, he'll make you love the subject.
One of the few decent teachers. Bizzar teaching style and gives dirty looks 2 pl
Good teacher, tends to talk on his cellie too much during labs
He will help u, but he always talk on his cellular during exams or labs
Very nice man, Will make sure the class understands material Highly recomend him
Very good teacher, very clear material, challenging exams. Seems a bit bored...
