Pireprofdemathdansmavie.Tropparesseuxpour corriger tous les examens mêmesi c'estle job detous les profs,alors il necorrige pas les démarches,mais seulement les réponses.Alors,plusieurs coulent.Son cours est très désordonné.Il nous montre quelques exemples et veut qu'on réussit à résoudre la matière qu'il vient nous montrer.Aussi,il est très injuste.Il donne secrètement les points à quelques élèves qu'il aime en raison que cet élève a tracé le graphique dans ses démarches(qu'il ne corrige jamais)

He is the best teacher to split the best from the worst students. He will give you exams that have nothing to do with normal exams and you will have to give the best out of your knowledge. And there, the study maniacs that only get good grades since they study fall and the smartest rises. I love that philosophy.
He can make some jokes about you, but consider him like a person who tries to help you and don't mind it. If you happen to fail an exam, meet him in recup!
Best math teacher for SN

Doesn't feel like he wants to be there. Instead of teaching theory he tries to teach by providing examples, and giving us problems and trying to have us "figure it out". Chucking us in the deep end if you will. And while I enjoyed that a lot, I could tell it was taking it's toll on other students who were struggling to keep up. The material is convoluted and is provided in no particular order. He is, however, one of the few technologically literate at Felix.

I remember checking these comments with him in class. I was very disappointed with the class at the beginning, but I learned to appreciate it as the year went along. It may seem like its terrible, but trust me, his class helped me pass my sec 4 and 5 science math classes at another school! He may seem mean, but he has his funny moments! All in all, it was a good and helpful class and M. Merlin is a good guy.

Worst teacher ever. He is incompetent, lazy and he WON'T answer your questions or teach math. He isn't doing the job that he is payed to do, that job being teaching math (not organizing trips).

I admire him for the effort he puts into trips. But in our time (before reform) it was a horrible time for those in sec.3 He didn't teach Algebra and said if anyone wants 436, study by yourself. It was very stressing. He wasted a lot of class time and didn't answer smart student questions. He also ripped your exam if you asked too much questions about it (specially if you got 90%+). He's a good guy, as person, but makes 436 a hard to reach dream.

He should be the organiser for trips. He's not a very good teacher. Although he tries to let the ones who deserve to go to 436 (good thing) he doesn't teach algebra, so you have to study for 436
