As already said, one of the few under rated teachers at aci. There's so much good things to say about him, he's miles ahead of that popular brown Qayum guy who can't teach for jack. I had him for grade 10 and 11, he's a great guy. Unfortunately, children today seem to rate teacher based on how 'cool' they are, which counts for jack. The children who don't do that are smart enough to visit this website, good for you :)

Such an underrated teacher. He's super nice, just a bit boring at times when he teaches (but really, how exciting can math be?). I had him in gr10 but he still recognized and greeted me in gr11 and 12

A nice man an definitely TRIES to help those who ask him questions, but frankly, he has no idea how to teach (not an opinion, but rather a concensus among those in his classes). He READS out of the textbook (word for word) and EXPECTS you to understand the material. He might as well just hand us a textbook, assign the questions, and go for a coffee because the end result is the same. A nice man if you do what you're supposed to and try hard, but frankly fails at teaching and explaining.

Very helpful if you're willing to come in on your own time and show eagerness to accept his help. Make sure to ask. If you don't, you're only hurting yourself. He's also very boring, but very sincere.

Well, I don't know what to say. He's really nice and will help you if you ask. But he's like a university professor (assumes that if you don't ask then you know the material). SO ASK QUESTIONS!

Yes, he's a dork, but he really tries to make everyone in the class understand the material - if you think he's unfair it's because you're not putting the effort in. He gives people so many chances and bonuses and somehow people are still complaining. That says more about the students than him!
