He really knows his stuff and his lectures are always entertaining.He teaches you WHY things happen so you get a general understanding that can make you solve any problem! Only problem with him is that he takes a while to correct lab reports and he doesnt have a lot of office hours because he teaches few class'. I would take him again if i could :)

Nathaniel Lasry was my teacher for Mechanics during my first semester at John Abbott. His explanations aren't all too clear, but if you're good at physics, you will do just fine. He makes fun demonstrations in front of the class and likes to jump on the desk sometimes. If you are having trouble in Physics though, I do not advise him.

His notes are fantastic, you dont need to take any in class. He is super smart but he isnt very good at conveying his intelligence. If you learn on your own well, youll do fine

Smart guy, but he lets you know it... hard guy to find even during his office hours. Don't take him if you have trouble in Physics.

Can't say enough about what a great physics teacher Lasry is! He makes everything (mechanics AND e&m) sound simple. He LOVES what he does and is always there to help. He's an entertainer, but also good at explaining notes.

Nathaniel's notes are very clear and organized, his tests are also rather simple. He really cares about his students and want them to do well. Doesn't prepare you well for finals and doens't give any homework!

Good teacher, good notes! He`s approachable in and out of class and he even responds to emails! If you care enough about physics you`ll do well. Put in effort and understand the theory, you`ll be surprised of the results!

NYB - Really nice guy, but a lil too taken up with the theory and not enough with the examples. Disappears in labs and doesnt answer questions well. Easy tests and assignments/quizzes, but BAD PREP for final. Interesting guy to listen to if u genuinely like physics, but bad if you just wanna pass the course.

not enough practice questions, gives you theory and derives the equations, but you don't see how to apply it which makes tests difficult and you don't completely understand. be prepared to do a lot of work on your own. nice guy though.

really nice guy, he uses new methods for teaching. I enjoyed his class, and Im usually really good in physics, but it ended up being my lowest mark. I'm not sure if thats his fault or mine, but I don't feel like he prepared me well for the final.

amazing guy but tends to go on tangents that r interesting but arent really necessary. He tends to spend more time telling us where the equation came from than how to use it. He cares about his students but spends to much time off topic

Not bad, but not the greatest. His class is easy if you are good with physics to begin with - if you have a hard time with it, take someone else. Notes are confusing.

Didn't like his class. There was no control and it was impossible to concentrate. Only helped those who were good at the subject. Printable notes. But sometimes unclear.
