Helped me get skills for university.
Best teacher I ever had
Too bad he is retired. This guy made it interesting and fun.6
Mr. Olma wrote all of his notes on the board with his illegible writing. All other classes get hard copy notes and you dont have any. You are responsible for taking care of your own education with him. You must come to every class because he does not fill you in and he makes it very hard to pass this way. Gives lots of text book homework and takes it up expecting you to know it all. makes you teach yourself. doesnt explain very well.
Great teacher with lots of neat ideas. He helps students and makes sure that they can pass the course.
I wish he put more effort and preparation into his own class. History feels like a self-taught course right now, with lots of harshly marked assignments thrown in... :(
Terrible teacher, didn't learn a thing. He is so lazy and gives the impression of not caring about his students
Terribly hard marker and extremely lazy, I strongly suggest against taking his online course unless you enjoy a 20% decrease in your marks.
This guy rocks. He is on top of the issues and provides interesting lessons
Mr. Olma can't believe that some of his students may actually care and even like the course they chose as their elective. Be careful: if you write a really good paper, he will accuse you of plagiarism. Even if you have research notes and a bibliography, make sure you document every revision of your essay if you revise - even though most students don't write several copies of an assignment. Just watch out...
Nice person. But he is much better at teaching world issues than he is at Canadian history. Definetly, I wish he could learn to mark things better. I dont mean i wish he would give higher marks, i mean i iwsh he could be better at adding them up on the score sheet. He definetly marked half the classes marks wrong, buthe wont give us the score sheet to check.
Can be a bit harsh sometimes but hes a funny guy, and explains real well.
You're helpful and you make History fun. The cheaters are just sore losers.
