Easily the BEST teacher I've ever had. Mr. Irwin is understanding, a fantastic teacher, and truly cares for everyone of his students. It was an honour to be in his class and I honestly miss him so much.
Irwin was the best! He's super approachable and helps out as much as he can. We always got a day to stidy in class before tests and if you spent it asking questions you were sure to get a good mark on the test. Once answered the door holding a meter stick like a weapon and said I was going to slash his tires. We always got 15-20 minutes of free time to waste before class, it was great!
Irwin made me hate physics. I loved physics before Grade 11, but i've ruled out any jobs related to physics. He assigns WAY too much homework! He does not realize that we have other classes too. Physics takes up the whole day everyday. He is such a terrble teacher, he only uses the textbook, and doesn't explain anything! He is not understanding at all with assignments and homework. He has crazy expectations, everyone is failing. 10/10 worst teacher. But otherwise he seems like a great person!!!!
i was in his enriched class, and he was the best math teacher ever, his teachings about complicated stuff us quite amazing
Never paid much attention to me. But is nice and clear.
Great teacher who knows his stuff. If you don't understand he's more than willing to help you! Although he does come in late a lot. Why? I don't know... But whatever, more time to work ;)
He's one of the sweetest teachers I have ever had, but isn't always 100% clear with his direction. He does a great job teaching subjects that many people find boring. Smart guy...in a quirky way.
This teacher made my child think she could do math for the first time in her life - what more could I ask for in a teacher!?
smart, funny and really cares about students - talks about real stuff and physics - doesn't waste anymore time than teachers who assign stupid busy work. I've learned lots from this guy
Usually a nice guy, but he exploded on the whole class once for a stupid reason, that only about 5 people out of 20 were involved with. Average instructor. His marking seems a little unfair at times.
I remember having Mr. Irwin for Physics. He is a real sweetheart, but does waste quite a bit of time at the beginning of each clas. Brilliant man, but need to concentrate more on the material.
he is a funny guy. i liked him in th beg. of the sem. but not now. he says he does not have fav students. I see people at the front of the class quiet, and he barely even talks to them.
Mr. Irwin is a real sweetheart. He's probably the most down-to-earth teacher at Oakridge. However, he does need to spend more time teaching and explaining concepts than talking about TV/socializing.
Mr. Irwin is a really nice, smart guy, but not all that clear in class. He is approachable, but wastes too much time.
he wastes the first 15-20 minutes of class so we wont waste them at the end. otherwise good tech, helpful, fun, knows his stuff, and will tolerate way to much.
Nice guy... funny guy.. he just can't teach. I learn more watching Bill Bye the Science Guy than taking a semester with Irwin.
Irwin talks TV and Physics...thank God!Makes the boring stuff bearable.Best teacher I've ever had. Guy who whined about TV talk...get a life! You need one!
Fun guy with lots of knowledge. Best class u can take...if your into physics!
mr irwin was a pretty rad grade 9 teacher..makes class fun. fun=uhh good...or something.
he is one of the hardest working teachers i have seen. keep it up!
BEST TEACHER EVER!!!!!he's the reason why i am passing university physics
How would you rate your self as a student -- thinking back to when you were at Oakridge? Tends to vary across approx. 9 yrs.
He helps u when u need it. He DOES prepare you for Uni. Physics! He does waste a lot of time though, but don't think you can slack off, physics12 is hard work.
Irwin is a good teacher... he wastes a lot of time... in grade 11 it was good... but not so much in grade 12
University is a big change, in general. -Irwin does the best he can to 'prepare' you for the challenge. -- BTW, a MSc candidate who graduated from the Oak here
Irwin Rocks. Hands down one of the better teachers at oakridge! He is so chills, science is actually fun with him.. I forget i'm learning sometimes..
Great teacher! Makes the subject fun and interesting.
funny teacher but always start class half an hour after the bell. Makes physics fun to learn and class really gets interestng once he starts breaking rulers. :D
Very fun class but he's always late. Oh well we made him do push ups or sing the Sound of Music if he was late.
ya, OK, he's a cool teacher, but seriously if you think Physics (12) isn't worth taking, just do it for the enormous percentage of class-time wasted per period.
HILARIOUS TEACHER!!! Made physics fun... take his course!
