Don't like his teaching style, but he knows his stuff.
Mr. Bontront was like one of the few teachers that made me look forward to having class every day. The way he explained everything was not only entertaining but also incredibly concise. It's people like him that make school enjoyable and inspire students to actually do something with their lives :D
Annoying jokes and gives numerous quizzes (quizzes every week).
Very good teacher. Gives back tests/quizzes/labs very quickly. Just make sure you go over your quizzes/tests to find small mistakes and you'll fly through this course.
I can't say much more than this since that sums it up pretty well and I'm the guy who wrote that 5 comment long review for Westbury. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Actually teaches!! (Unlike some other teachers at Massey...) His sense of humor is great, and he's totally approachable for help. Tests and assignments are really easy, but he's really nit-picky on specifics (e.g. sig digs). Make sure you show EVERY step and triple check every test to make sure you didn't make a careless mistake! He's not generous with marks, so you might get zero for a question even if you just made a small mistake in the beginning.
To me Mr. Bontront has a cool way of conveying what he wants to tell us. In the midst of the notes he gives us he always finds a way to make a horrible joke or pun. If you answer something in class he acknowledges it. No question is a stupid, he'll always find a way to help you. He updates marks frequently allowing you to evaluate where you are in the class. When he writes on the board, he says it aloud for the aural learners and waits to continue for the visual. Overall AMAZING - Ahmed Abdallah
Mr. Bontront is a great guy, funny, and a fantastic teacher. He teaches you incredibly well, and even throws in some extra fun knowledgeable facts. He's really funny, I love his daily jokes-- they really make my day.
He is a very helpful and a really good teacher, he is not intimidating at all to ask questions to. He gives alot of quizzes with a one or two days notice, but it helps boost your mark. Study because grade 12 chem has ALOT of nomenclature!!! His jokes are not that funny but everyone laughs anyways..Overall one of the best teachers everrrr!!!!!
One of my favorite teacher in Massey. He is so well-organized and intellectual. He regularly updates marks so you can figure how you did in the class.
His course is structured in a way where after you leave his class you forget everything... I didn't really find his jokes funny. I liked Zuk better. He turns really unreasonable when he gets mad at the class.
One of my favourite if not most favourite teacher at Massey. VERY nice and helpful, explains things very well. His tests are very fair and he is HILARIOUS! Definitely born to be a teacher, he loves his job and we love him
He really loves teaching. His class is always interesting and relaxing. Bontront explains concepts well. Don't slack off on homework, especially close to exam time and you'll do fine. Love his enthusiasm!
Online gr12 U chemistry answer key - saved my life many, many times Thank you (: So much, especially since there are a lot of errors in the text book -__-
One of the few teachers that has a genuine interest and extensive knowledge of the subject he teaches, and overall a very nice guy. He makes it very easy to achieve high marks as long as you listen and do the work.
despite what others say...great jokes :D
helpful, kind, understanding, organized, nice notes, nice website, fair quizzes and tests, lots of free class time
dislike his use of TACK!
Fair teacher/grader. If you do not understand something it seriously takes him 3 minutes to explain it. Amazing teacher. And ofcourse the jokes
Well organized teacher, always there for any student in need. Fantastic website resources.
Great explanations, jokes are only funny because we're laughing at him, love how he marks everything right away, organized, should teach university
He explains things well and always has funny jokes. Also, the students mark the quizzes at the end of them, so you can cheat and keep your own so you can change the answers
Ah, Mr. B. The little jokes on the side of your door make me LOL every fifth period. You're pretty darn awesome, Sir, and you're really nice! :)
Good chem teacher. A lot of stuff is repeated from Gr11, and he doesn't teach stuff that might overlap with Uni. This kinda make his enriched class, non-enriched.
Honestly, he's one of the nicest people I know! Unlike other teachers, he really just wants you to know the material and do well in his course. If you listen to what he says, you've got 90+.
Great teacher. Tests are worded in an absurd way which makes it hard to understand the multiple choice and T&F questions, but the quizzes make up for it. Love his humour. He likes to help and have fun
Good teacher...teaches very thoroughly...do your homework and your gauranteed a good mark...all is easy in his clas!!
Great teacher, very organized. If you do the work, and do things exactly as he asks, you will get the marks.
a good one! not to worry if u keep up with your homework... quizes boost up your really so much that u would need to study for exam as u would for a unit test... loved the jokes and questioning session at the end of the class
I dont care what any1 says Mr.Bontront's jokes are friken halarious and he is an awsome teacher
Mr.Bontront is extremely nice, funny and an excellent teacher. Most of his jokes are really lame, but overall the class is fun.
Mr. Bontront is a good guy. He is very organized and does things a teacher should do. He tells really weird jokes... If you take his class, you're in for a good laugh.
I thought Mr. Bontront is a good teacher. His teaching is very well rounded. It's very clear and easy to follow. For those who complain about not learning, pay attention in class.
One of the finest teachers at massey. He's not interested in being the "popular" teacher like some of the other science teachers. He's just happy if you know and enjoy what you're doing. Good jokes ;)
i hate his style, he would take off marks for mispelling... he follows the rules too much
Like an educational program set on rerun - lots of "We'll get to that another day" and not enough "You guys know this so we'll move on".
Tells the best jokes ever (especially the one about the monkeys)
Very funny and very easy - however, in his class, you either get what he's teaching or you don't, so good luck!
I was lost the entire year in his class, and yet I still ended up with a good mark. I guess thats called teaching now
Very smart and knows a lot of stuff, but has to learn how to share it with the class. Needs to learn how to communicate with people better.
spends a lot of time teaching the wrong things (ie) signifcant digits instead of PHYSICS for a change?! his jokes are funny, because they are really not.
omg...more enthusiastic than bill nye the science guy... his class is so boring ! ugh
Seriously, this man is way too dedicated and I think he gets mad at you if you dont pick up on and understand what he is teaching.
My passion for science has turned to hate. He is why.
I used to have a passion for science. Key words == used to
you don't have your safety goggles on! Whats wrong with you?! yeah, ok ther
pretty easy, terrible jokes, with the cell phone and fax dude...!!!
our class ain't brave we wouldn't hlp wit da monsters
lol you better watch out or the monsters in the test tubes might get ya!
man, his jokes dont get any better,,, they are worse enough as is! lol
sir i was serious when i said your jokes are the funniest things i ever heard...
oh man, the one liners... i'm led to believe he spends all his time on them
Changes Details of assignments after he collects and gives the back
