Favorite teacher so far in all of WCI!
Dr. Michael Burns is an extraordinary teacher who pretty much sets up his students to get at least an everage of 90%. Being in his Pre-AP math class, he is very engaging and has an extremely polite attitude. The best teacher I've ever had.
he is an amazing teacher and i wish i could have him for all of high school.
He used to work at NASA. He is the best teacher.
I plan on taking his astronomy class later!
His physics classes are engaging and informative. Best teacher I've had in high school.
(written 2015 1st semester)Totally recommended, I am taking pre-ap math. He is sooo good at his job, he makes school fun. Yes actually fun!His motto is to "Grok it", to understand the steps that you do rather than memorization. To actually practice it over and over again until you just know it. That is when you Grok it. Unique teacher that makes sure everyone is on the same page and explains if you do not understand. Excellent teacher ever had!!!!
Burns is the BEST physics teacher! He makes physics the funnest course. He is so knowledgable and knows how to transfer his knowledge to his students in so many fun and interacting ways. His tests can be sometimes a page too long I find, but for the most part he is one of the best teachers. Wish every teacher was as fun and knowledgable as him!
"I may have a PhD but don't call me a doctor, I don't help people" burns is the smartest teacher ever and I look up to him for all that he's accomplished. So brilliant and a great teacher overall.
By far the best teacher I have ever had. Incredibly knowledgeable! Makes students understand why, not how. Even though I'm in university he still blows all the other profs I have ever had out of the water! Made all of first year a breeze with AP! :)
Great Teacher! Absolute BEST for AP exam preparation! Teaches you the theory behind everything so you understand; its your job to read your textbook and find questions though. Terrible at answering questions! Read the textbook, then listen to his lecture, then you'll find them very thorough. posts ALL of his material on his website! if you get to know him and show him respect you'll find that he's a great teacher! Always exaggerates about the difficulty of tests/uni/life dont worry about that :P
The best teacher ever. I have him almost everyday of the week, but his classes are never boring. He knows his stuff very well.
This teacher is so chill. He gives great reference letters to just about anyone, and he loves to give out marks. Just give him the respect he deserves and you're in for smooth sailing. Two thumbs up.
He is a really passionate teacher for his subjects, you can learn a lot from his class. He is definitely a fair and fun teacher, if you do the work he will give you the mark!
One of the best teachers. Extremely passionate, knowledgeable and helpful. Very fair with students. Somewhat skewed towards smarter students, and less inclined with less gifted students.
From the moment he begins to speak, you can sense the passion he has for the subjects, he's awsome, pure and simple. Makes you think, not memorize, best teacher at WCI.
a good guy, but it appears sometimes like the only people he recognizes and is personal with are the smartest of the class. You know, us middle of the pack students would like acknowledgement too...
wow. His level of education and experience in terms of astronomy is amazing and impressive.
This is the best teacher at WCI. He made me love math for the first time. He even has a Phd in Astronomy. Wow!!!
intelligent, funny man; helpful online lessons. however, he needs to slow down sometimes and be a little more lenient in marking towards the ap students that aren't the top 5. good person though.
His enthusiasm for math is contagious! I can now find enjoyment in a subject I once loathed. Excellent teacher; goes out of his way to help students. Pushes you until you do well. Entertaining and fun
umm I live in Bc so how should i know if this is a good teacher
still my favourite teacher. Even though I'm in university now.
good teacher.sometimes gives the impression he only cares about the really smart math students. overall one of the best math teachers i've had.
He gives you so many chances for bonus marks ... He's a good teacher, and he's pretty nice as well.
made calculus make sense, and fun to do... very fun, and easy to learn from, always willing to help you...all around great teacher:D
a smart teacher, if you have him, you will learn so much, only if you are as smart as him,lol.
Amazing math teacher, always available for extra help. Really cool guy.
too smart to be teaching... not a very good math teach
He's a good teacher, a bit clumsy... I doubt he'll know a quarter of his students' names by the end of the year... but if he's giving you a good mark who gives?
wow I love his math teaching. I now know what math is all about.
This is the best teacher I have ever had. I feel so confident in going to University
Great.....just wut mathz supposed 2 be 'bout....!!!!!!!
if only all teachers were like him...the world would be full of smarter people
He is hard, but I have learned more math in grade 9 than before
Best math teacher! Gave me an entirely new (and hard) view on math
Best calculus teacher. in the world probably. my cat can do this
I must thank him for making the course hard as well as fun
I had him last year. He is the best teacher of Calculus
Great teacher. Not an easy teacher, but you'll thank him later on.
