Dr. Magwood is an exceptionally great science teacher. He is especially good at teaching Earth and Space Science. He is really helpful as long as you ask questions and willing to take time to help you out. He even takes time out of his weekends to do great field trips with Earth and Space Science. You have to put in time do well in his courses. Just don't ask him for help spelling.
Easily the best teacher at Lisgar. Sit close though, otherwise you may not hear him!
He goes quickly during lessons but if you need help understanding something will immediately be able to provide the support you need. A great man, amazing teacher and just all around wonderful. Highly recommend taking his class.
I had him for chemistry and he was great. Super nice person who is very knowledgeable about what he teaches and is highly sympathetic and flexible towards due dates and chances for tests. Honestly he breaks it down to the basic steps and I sometimes got very confused because although he breaks it down he's so knowledeable the content to be known becomes a bit overwhelming, but asking him for help one on one after class or during his free time will help you immediately and understand concepts. A+
Doctor Magwood is an incredible teacher. His knowledge is encyclopedic and he teaches with immense depth and clarity. Conversely, his tests and exam are easy. Highly recommended for any science class.
Dr. Magwood is one of those teachers that you know will be awesome from the moment you walk into class on the first day. He is so thorough in explaining everything, and his class will be a breeze if you listen, which is easy to do because he is so knowledgeable about science.
Knows his stuff and helps explain things clearly to students. Does move through subjects quite fast so attention during his classes is a must. Overall a very good teacher.
Great nice teacher. Always willing to help you when you need it. Can be a little confusing when he teaches, since his chalkboard notes get messy and his handwriting isn't the neatest. Can take a very long time to mark if it isn't scantron. Would recommend for gr. 11 chem at least.
Dr.Magwood is the best teacher that I've ever had, well at least among the teachers I had in that semester. He is knowledgeable and willing to help you and you struggle. Truly an angel. He is kinda geeky if you meet him at first, but you'll soon find out he is quite hilarious. Hope to have him in the future :)
Great teacher! Helps you when you need it and understands the student's struggle!
Dr. Magwood is an awesome teacher. Definitely knows his stuff and cares a lot about his students. If you approach him, he'll always be helpful. He never hands anything back and is quite disorganized but he makes up for it with his knowledge!
Dr. Magwood is the greatest! He is extremely knowledgeable, funny, and very helpful. He updates his website and posts things to help us with our learning. One bad thing is that he takes a while to hand things back, if he even does...
Hands down the best science teacher I have ever had. Very helpful and really cares about his students learning. Very knowledgeable and you can tell he knows his stuff :D very good grader and goes out of his way to help you if you need anything. You could ask him pretty much anything about science and he'll give you a great detailed answer. he's the best!
Super awesome teacher! He teaches well, very nice. Always offers extra help and updates his website for any test/homework info you might need.
very smart, wants his students to succeed, yet taught very quick-moving and complicated lessons that often only half the class could follow
one of my fave teachers but needs to correct things faster!
Mr.Magwood! Your the BEST! Always has interesting classes. Just don't bring food to class, or he'll confiscate and eat it after class =S
Amazing teacher! Oh man I wish he could have been mu university chem professor! He is with no questions asked a great person. Magwood is really wants everyone to do well in his class, and he is really laid back, but at the same time pushes everyone to learn. He teaches like your in uni, he has that style! If you need a gr.12 chm credit..go with magwood, go the work, come in for extra help, and trust me you will love him!
Awesome chem teacher! He is really nice and if you have a question he always helps you out!
Hands down the best science teacher at lisgar. Actually knows the answers to the questions you ask him. First name is Jim, therefore bonus.
Lots of note-taking: great for visual/audio learners. Always willing to answer addtional questions outside of class time. Space Sim all the way!
Amazing teacher. Dedicated and knoweldgeable. Notes are sometimes hard to follow, but he makes up for it by making Chem12 pseudo-philosophy. GO SPACESIM!
Not the easier class, and lessons can be hard to follow, but he always makes up for it by letting missed assignments slide :P
best chemistry/science teacher at lisgar, just as good at space sim!
Very good teacher. Knows the subject matter, makes it interesting, and marks fairly... and he's got a PhD
awesome! great teacher, alwayz fun, and makes sense!
He totally knows how to make someone's day (and makes a point of doing so).
