Good Teacher. A little hard to understand at times. but he is very passionate about the subject and is always available to help students when they ask. Problems in class are similar to the exam, so if you study, you should pass the class.

I had this teacher for Introduction to Economics and I honestly think that he's a good teacher that cares about his students. The only downside is that he is VERY SLOW, the content is there but it takes years for him to move on and when he does, he skips a millennium. Class can be very amusing or the other way around. DO NOT SKIP his classes, he takes mandatory attendance! His tests are very easy, I barely listen in class. I studied alone with the book.

Had him in two classes and I will say that you are in for an easy but boring ride.Postive is you really don't have to go to any classes but the important ones (quiz, tests etc.. ) he puts practice tests on Moodle in which i HIGHLY RECOMMEND to memorize if possible as the questions are either the same or nearly exact. If you do that then your good for the three tests which cover 60% overall. Unfortunately He can't explain at all. Your not going there to learn, but just for the class credits.

When taking his class, make sure you have your textbook and that you are paying attention to what he says because it is important. He is really funny and knows what he is talking about. His exams are fine if you study and it is easy to get more points of his quizzes (2%). MAKE SURE YOU STUDY, TAKE NOTES, AND PRACTICE. If you are lost he will help you.

He was an alright teacher. Sitting in the front of the class really helps out as he's not the clearest speaker plus he writes down A LOT of notes on the board. Tests are fairly simple. They are based on the notes and prep quizzes he gives before the test. Not really helpful during office hours though. I wouldn't necessarily recommend him, but it's not the end of the world if your stuck taking him.

Not a bad teacher, but not a good one either. He's very kind and truly tries to help you pass, but he's also very confusing. He sometimes contradicts what's written in the book without even being aware of it (be careful, he will discard your answer if it's not exactly what he said in class!) He also puts practice tests online that are 75% the same as the real exams, so use them.The hardest part was trying to listen when people make fun of his accent... I got an easy 97% hahaha

Has an accent but knows what he's talking about so be patient. Very nice and helpful but a little lost. His tests are super easy so it's easy to pass this course. A few days before the test he does a practice quiz (multiple choice) that's barely worth anything so that you can be prepared and so that you know what will be on the test for sure. If you don't understand something, just read the chapter in the textbook and you'll be good. All you have are 3 small quizzes, 3 tests and 1 group essay.

Intro to economics. I liked this teacher as a person not so much as a teacher. He was unclear and the class was quite dry. However his tests were not too difficult if you studied on your own time with the textbook. Yet, the class average was 69. Most people were bored of his class so they didn't attend and missed easy marks such as participation quizzes and assignments. Overall, take him but if u can avoid him.

He's definitely not the best teacher at Dawson but he's not the worst either. He's very unclear and half the time you'll wonder what the heck he's taking about. The one thing I really disliked about was the fact that he'd never put the grades up on lea, he takes forever to grade assignments and sometimes he doesn't give it back so you'll never know grade until the end of the semester lol

Not the best teacher but there's no reason to drop his class. He's a bit hard to understand and could be clearer but just make sure you have the textbook. You can easily convince him to push back test/due dates and even have an open book quiz. He'll give you two marks just for answering a question, or attempting to, in class.

Excellent Economics Teacher. Would Highly recommend. Make sure you bring something to write with, because he does a lot of exercises and problems on the board. If you look over the problems and study you should do fine. Test/Quiz practises are posted online-use them, they're practically the same questions.

He is kind, and knows his subject. However he can be confusing sometimes and may need to improve his teaching skills. But he is very willing to help if you ask for it. My advice to succeed in his class would be to study ahead. Read the chapters in advance. Once in class it'll be very easy. Also at the beginning of the semester the pace is really slow and speeds up towards the end of the semester. When he hands back exams, double check the correction, just in case.
