He knows what hes doing, and hes the marks in his class arent great but grade 12 physics is a hard course, hes fair. If he seems to over complicate things it means u have fallen behind trust me if u keep up studying u will be okay. Go talk to him at lunch with questions, he does care about his students even the idiots who dont study then say he plays favourites when they get bad grades. he will help anyone if u ask specific questions and honestly say u need a long explanation
Super smart. Was in the 4UE class and loved him. The class is hard, but it's a hard subject. If your looking for easy or don't want to do the work, this is not the class for you. He is a fair market and tries to make stuff fun. He always helps when I have questions, at lunch or after school.
Excellent Teacher, very smart and knowledgeable. He is part of the team who wrote grade 11 physics text book by Pearson.
He makes sure you have a good time, and makes sure you understand the material and shows a lot of Bill Nye but he marks fairly and goes at a good pace and shows things ahead of the curriculum so you have a good foundation for next year.
He is a hard teacher but fair. I found if I do the work I got good grades. He is funny and really knows his stuff. Ask him questions of stuff you are curious about and he'll really explain it. I went for extra help and he sent lunch and after school explaining things in a way I could understand. He took us to McMaster for competitions and all classes to Wonderland for a physics project...I find most of the people that complain are lazy or not willing to put in the work.
He is precisely (pun intended) the best teacher
I love Mr sheikh he taught me a lot
Very smart person and knows a lot about physics... that's as far as the pros go. He's a terrible teacher, he can't explain things properly, he overcomplicates things, he takes marks off for the randomest things, even if you follow his rubric exactly. People who should be getting high 90's (and had high 90's in physics previously) have low 80's. If you have a choice, DROP HIS CLASS. Any other teacher would be better, or just take it in summer school. Whatever you have to do to avoid him, do it.
Mr. Shaikh doesn't care about his students. He chooses his favorites and if you are on his bad side, you can say goodbye to your previous 90's in physics. Makes course materials complicated although they are relatively simple. He uses past tests so go thorough them carefully before unit tests. My advise is to drop him if you can cause he will make you regret taking physics. I'm just hoping teachers like him retire at the proper age (he is 65+) as they make the subject dry and difficult.
By far the best teacher I have had for science. At the start he was really hard to understand and was boring, but then he started to become more funny and talked to us about more interesting things. He is my boi.
very smart, but cant speak English properly, nor can he teach. He would be a great physicist but he makes a bad teacher. He is hard on students, his tests are HARD (especially the first two). My advice, if you get him, drop the class nd try for another teacher, or go to summer school for it
He seems to understand his material, but cannot communicate it clearly. Not very understanding to student, has to have things done his way. He makes physics one of the hardest classes in grade 12.
I have no clue why you hate mr. shaikh, he's one of the best teachers in the school. Yes he makes fun of people, but he makes sure that that person is okay with it. In SPH4UE, no body hated the guy, and besides he boosts everyones exam marks as much as he possibly can, so how can you hate him?
I think he's a fair teacher, at least he knows his stuff.
On good days, he's an average teacher. He can be rude at times, but most of the time you could never tell because he's extraordinarily difficult to understand. He has everything against him from a strong accent, to mispronunciation and poor word order - an extremely bad combination for a science teacher. He knows his stuff but can't communicate it. He's also very unforgiving with his marking.
Honestly, the rudest, most condescending teacher who in no way encourages his students. He asked me to meet him at his office at a specific time, I go, he doesn't show, I ask other teachers and they tell me he's out. So I come back several times, and when I finally find him after school, he yells at me and says that "not finding a teacher is never a good excuse" and shooed me away. Teachers are supposed to be role models for us. Never have I been so disappointed in a teacher.
Sometimes when he tacks, i don't know what he is tacking. Overall he is pretty good, or pretty smart.
well he is fair and smart but needs to teach properly. I like his accent... he is a nice guy
He is a very fair teacher. He cares about the marks of his students. I like his sense of humour. He is the smartest teacher in the shool!
A brilliant teacher. Knows his stuff and cares about the class. Jokes around with the students and makes fun of them but in a fun manner, his class is a blast.
